Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Pelosi Wants Her To Get Death Threats

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) walked back her suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was targeting her because Pelosi was racist and instead appeared to suggest that Pelosi was targeting her because Pelosi wants her to get “death threats.”

“It’s singling out four individuals, and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN’s Manu Raju. “I think it’s just worth asking why.”

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks came in response to the escalating fight that she has had with Pelosi in recent months.

Earlier this week Ocasio-Cortez suggested to The Washington Post that Pelosi was targeting her and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — who all champion extreme left-wing policies —because Pelosi was racist.

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “But the persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

    Maybe if she shut her big mouth and stopped talking crap about everyone she wouldn’t be getting death threats. But on a brighter note, glad to see the Dem Congress at war with each other. Great for our win in 2020. lol

    AOC obviously thinks she should be afforded respect for doing nothing at all…

    Sorry, AOC, it doesnt work that way in the real world, you actually have to EARN respect… you dont get participation awards in the real world just because you show up….

    in real life, people that say moronic stuff with no regard for the truth, this is what happens, you get called out for it and especially when you speaking for a position of power (A sitting Congressman) spout things that a simple googling would tell you you are wrong, you will get angry letters and phone calls

    time to grow up and pull up your little girl panties and start hiring some experts on the subjects you want to talk about so at the very least you stop saying things that even high school students know are lies.

    Ocrazio just wants to get more attention. Let her keep shooting her mouth off with her lies and exaggerations. It will be a win for the Republicans!
