Democrats know that they’re in a terrible position heading into the midterm elections.
So they’re resorting to outright lies.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spread a terrible conspiracy theory to destroy Republicans.
Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed to her supporters Wednesday that the events of January 6th would happen again if Democrats didn’t keep the House, warning that the riot was “a trial run,” adding ominously that “they” are “going to come back.”
“This is no joke,” AOC said, according to Yahoo! News. “Jan. 6 was a trial run, and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that. It was a trial run.
“They’re going to come back,” she added, without giving any details into the offered conspiracy.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the breach would somehow have been worse if the House had been in Republican hands.
“And if [Republicans] take the House, then they have the votes to not authorize and legitimize the presidential election,” she said. “The only reason it wasn’t worse was because Democrats had the House, and [Republicans] didn’t have the votes in the House.”
Ocasio-Cortez said that she feared for her life on January 6th without revealing that she was in her office in the Cannon Building, which is inside the Capitol complex but some distance from the Capitol Rotunda and House Chambers.
She was accused of omitting the fact that she wasn’t at the Capitol when recounting her dramatic retelling of the day.
“As for myself, I had a pretty traumatizing event happen to me and I do not know if I can even disclose the full details of that event due to security concerns, but I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die and you have all of those thoughts where, you know, at the end of your life, and all of these thoughts come rushing to you, and that’s what happened to a lot of us on Wednesday,” she said on Instagram Live, The Daily Wire reported. “I did not think, I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive, and not just in a general sense, but also in a very, very specific sense and, you know, I think it’s an opportunity for a lot of us to talk about trauma as well.”
Ocasio-Cortez later went further and claimed she feared rape as well when talking to CNN in August of 2021.
“I didn’t think that I was just going to be killed,” the Democrat told CNN’s Dana Bash. “I thought other things were going to happen to me as well.”
Early in April a federal judge acquitted a January 6 defendant on all charges ruling that the New Mexico man “reasonably believed” that a police officer waved him into the building.
