Politicians are known for not being the most virtuous people. But Americans couldn’t help but be horrified by this.
That’s because a leading Republican was just accused of this heinous crime by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reacted angrily after Republicans removed her ally, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), from the Foreign Relations Committee due to Omar’s long history of anti-Semitic statements.
Ocasio-Cortez arrived on CNN to explain the issue, and guest anchor John Berman referenced a scenario from the House Speaker election.
Cameras captured Rep. Ocasio-Cortez speaking with Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ), whom previous House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) expelled off committee assignments over an anime video that she said incited violence against the New York socialist.
Berman questioned what they discussed and whether Rep. Gosar apologized.
Gosar, according to Ocasio-Cortez, did not apologize, and she told him the only thing she agreed on was opposing Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for Speaker of the House.
“No, no,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There was never an apology. But I think what a lot of people sometimes fail to understand is that when a workplace has been made unsafe for a person, it is then up to that individual to try to survive on their own. This is not an institution that protects, this is not a party that protects people that they disagree with.”
“But that being said, what it comes to with those remarks with Representative Gosar, one of the things I told him is, ‘I can’t stand what you did, and I can’t stand what you stand for, but I don’t think that you should support Kevin McCarthy for Speaker either,’” she continued. “And, you know, that’s one thing on one day that I think both of us were in alignment on.”
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez then reverted to her tried-and-true technique of accusing Rep. Gosar and other Republicans of “stochastic terrorism” against her.
“I think it’s uncomfortable serving with people who engage in what many experts deem stochastic terrorism, which is the incitement of violence in a — which is an incitement of violence using digital means and large platforms so that individual themselves may not be the one that’s wielding a weapon,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.
Ocasio-Cortez then falsely claimed she required the same degree of protection as the President of the United States just to travel owing to alleged death threats she received as a result of Republicans participating in “stochastic terrorism.”
“But I have had to ride, as has Representative Omar, I’ve consistently had to ride in 20,000-pound armored vehicles, you know, engaging in some of the most gruesome threats that you can imagine that were incited by Republican members,” Ocasio-Cortez suggested.
“This is not just about a tweet. It is about what life looks like and the marshaling of hundreds, thousands, if not millions of people into doing something. And Donald Trump knows that very well, and he uses and used his rallies very strategically in order to engage in political intimidation of what he deemed his political enemies.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Democratic colleagues adore the phrase “stochastic terrorism.”
Stochastic terrorism is a phrase coined by the Left to outlaw speech that they oppose.
Dictionary.com defines stochastic terrorism as “public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act, which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted.”
In effect, Democrats can claim that anyone who criticizes them is engaging in “stochastic terrorism” because someone might attack a Democrat someday, even if there is no evidence that anyone is in any danger.
Democrats want to imprison Americans for their political ideas and expression.
They’re merely utilizing stochastic terrorism as a means to an end.
