Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to making a spectacle of herself.
But what just happened was humiliating even for Ocasio-Cortez.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez melted down on national TV with a jaw-dropping rant.
The entire American left – from elected officials to the corporate media, to Hollywood, to academia – are up in arms over the Supreme Court allowing a Texas law to go into effect that banned abortions after six weeks.
In an appearance on CNN with Anderson Cooper, Ocasio-Cortez flew off the handle in a bizarre rant opposing the Texas law which lawmakers designed to save the lives of innocent unborn babies.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed Republicans were faking being pro-life because they did not support socialist domestic policies.
But where Ocasio-Cortez really lost the plot was when Ocasio-Cortez erased women giving birth to claim Republicans’ opposition to socialism discriminated against “people who do give birth” – implying that men can also get pregnant.
“When we talk about the law that was passed in Texas, we know that anti-choice bills are not about being pro-life,” Ocasio-Cortez told Cooper, “because if they were about being pro-life, then the Republican Party would support, frankly, an agenda that helps guaranteed health care, that helps ensure that people who do give birth that don’t have the resources to care for a child, can have that care for a child.”
Ocasio-Cortez then falsely claimed men could menstruate.
“So we know that none of this is about life,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted. “None of this is about supporting life. What this is about is controlling women’s bodies and controlling people who are not cisgender men. This is about making sure that someone like me, as a woman or any menstruating person in this country, cannot make decisions over their own body.”
Ocasio-Cortez made sure everyone knew this was no slip of the tongue.
Instead of clarifying that – yes – Ocasio-Cortez knew men could not get pregnant, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on social media to claim men who identified as transgender, non-binary or “two-spirit” can menstruate.
“Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate. Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy. GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holder.” Ocasio-Cortez added. “Trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people have always existed and will always exist. People can stay mad about that if they want, or they can grow up.”
Few people have ever heard of men who identify as “two-spirit.”
But Democrats like to say they are the party of “following the science.”
However, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – one of the leaders of the Democrat Party – does not believe there any biological differences between men and women and that men can menstruate and get pregnant.
