“It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad,” she added.
She then included footage of the incident in a follow-up tweet. “I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
“[AOC] trashed Capitol Police for not protecting her from a heckler, despite her encouragement of hecklers who have interrupted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and harassed and intimidated other conservative justices wherever they go, the Gateway Pundit reported.” – Jacob Bruns, Headline USA
The video was originally posted by a comedian and far-right activist named Alex Stein, and reposted on Twitter by Ocasio-Cortez. In the video, Stein can be heard yelling at Ocasio-Cortez, calling her his “favorite big booty Latina” while accusing her of wanting to “kill babies.”
At one point in the clip, Ocasio-Cortez appears to acknowledge Stein and begins walking over to him. “Why don’t we do a little selfie?” she is heard saying, throwing up a peace sign before turning and striding off up the staircase away from Stein.
