AOC Humiliated at Lightly Attended Town Hall – Watch
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was roasted over her voting record on sending weapons and aid to Ukraine. The leftist politician was confronted by protesters during a very lightly attended town hall event in New York City on Wednesday.
A man can be heard on the video telling AOC, “You voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine!” In fact, the whole squad voted in favor of sending $40 billion in aid to Ukraine.
During the Town Hall event entitled, “Legislative Victories & Opportunities for Constituents,” Ocasio-Cortez was asked why she doesn’t leave the Democratic Party like former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard.
The man said Gabbard left the Democratic Party “because they’re a bunch of war hawks.”
“You ran as an outsider,” the man said. “Yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’ve been voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China.”
He asked, “Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?”
Another man chimed in, “You voted to mobilize and send money to Ukrainian Nazis.”
He yelled, “You’re a coward!” And then he questioned her stance as a “progressive socialist” while voting to send American money to Ukraine.
The man ended his rant, “We could be in a nuclear war at any minute, and you continue to fund it. That’s what’s going on.”
AOC refused to address the man’s claims, but she did call him “rude.” He retorted, “You’re the liar here. Nobody has held you accountable.”
The man concluded, “And it is time for you to stand up and realize that what you’ve been saying has been lies. Let your conscience come through for once.”
AOC, a regular user of social media, has yet to defend her voting record on funding Ukraine. In fact, she has never mentioned the war between Russia and Ukraine once.
Yet in January of 2020, Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed that “war is a class conflict.”
“The rich and powerful who open war escape the consequences of their decisions,” AOC tweeted. “It’s not their children sent into the jaws of violence. It is often the vulnerable, the poor, & working people – who had little to no say in conflict – who pay the price.”
