A Republican congresswoman called out AOC – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) – for what she called a “fake” arrest during an abortion protest.
On Tuesday, the far-left representative intimated being handcuffed following her arrest at a pro-abortion demonstration outside the Supreme Court. When photos reached the internet, social media widely mocked her. The mocking intensified after more photos of AOC surfaced; this time with her fist raised over her head.
Capitol Police confirmed after the protest that “nobody was handcuffed as is standard for a noncustodial arrest.”
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) was one of those who took to social media to criticize AOC’s “performative art”:
In response, AOC insisted that she was not pretending to be in handcuffs. She responded to Rep. Mace’s tweet with one of her own that contained an extra zinger at the end:
The dig at the end of AOC’s tweet refers to her prior run-un with Mace in the news. After AOC recounted her traumatic January 6th experience, Mace called her out for embellishing some details. Specifically, Mace accused AOC of sensationalizing her personal narrative, to which AOC responded by accusing Mace of silencing her.
Undaunted, the congresswoman called out AOC again, responding in another reply tweet:
The New York Post reported that AOC responded yet again, but this time, on Instagram:
“Republicans’ favorite hobby is to make conspiracy theories out of everything to distract you and keep you from talking about what’s actually important — which is the fact that they are trying to take away your right to bodily autonomy,” AOC said. “If I was faking that, why would I intentionally first pump somebody? It’s so silly.”
No word yet if AOC accused Mace of “trying to date” her.
The fact that Mace, a fellow congresswoman, called out AOC on her nonsense, is heartening. AOC is as fake as fake can be. From her hypocritical Florida vacation during COVID, to her online store hawking anti-capitalist wares, AOC has been reliably Buffoonish. This “fake” arrest is simply the latest manipulation. You can see even more examples here.
AOC is a leech who latched onto the larger political movement and, by doing so, has benefitted and even thrived in politics by doing little. Due to today’s political climate, AOC attained power. The more AOC gain, the more that politics becomes more about angles and optics than service. That’s probably why, other than her performances to her millions of supporters across social media, we can’t think of one single legislative accomplishment that AOC can claim.
With no real record to speak of, Ocasio-Cortez subsists like other political bottom feeders: By using her forked tongue and image to manipulate supporters.
Good for Rep. Mace for calling her out. But, if we had one criticism of her, it is that Twitter beefs makes you look childish. Going back and forth on social media will inevitably lead to additional Buffoonery.
Nonetheless, we’re pleased as punch that the congresswoman called out AOC in public for her latest buffoonish “performative art”.
