So here’s what happened….
A woman who was either clearly deranged or performing satire melted down at an AOC Townhall event, going on a rant about how there’s just too much CO2 and how eating the dead will not be enough, we have to eat the babies!
Here’s what I find to be nuts: there’s a lot of confusion out there about whether this was real or a staged satire event.
Folks….when your political platform is SO FAR LEFT that the general public can’t tell if this is one of your true supporters or the most ridiculous satire that could be thought up, well then I think your goose is cooked!
That really says it all, doesn’t it?

What we do know is the event truly happened.
You can watch it on C-Span of all places right here.
And Newsweek covered it as well:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a town hall in Corona, New York, at the Queens Public Library on Thursday, which concluded with an alleged constituent in distress yelling, "Eat the babies!"
Like most town halls, Ocasio-Cortez reiterated her goals as the representative for New York's 14th congressional district, alongside messaging about the Green New Deal, her new "Just Society" legislation and the impeachment of President Trump.
Toward the end of the town hall question-and-answer session, the alleged constituent stood up and spoke with fervor about the state of our world and climate change.
"We're not going to be here for much longer because of the climate crisis! We only have a few months left! I love that you support the Green Deal but getting rid of fossil fuel is not going to solve the problem fast enough."
"I think your next campaign slogan has to be this, we got to start eating babies."Full video of woman at Ocasio-Cortez's town hall shouting "Eat the babies!"
At that point, the woman removed her coat and pointed to her t-shirt, which said "Save the Planet, Eat the Children". The t-shirt appeared to be homemade.
Ocasio-Cortez posted a couple of tweets in response to this incident, saying the person in question might have been suffering from a "mental condition".
Many mocked AOC's response:
Gizmodo (who normally focuses on new iPhone releases) has reported that it was a staged satire by LaRouche PAC:
LaRouche PAC, a far-right group that supports Donald Trump, has taken credit for trolling Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during a town hall meeting yesterday. An operative with LaRouche made headlines overnight after standing up at AOC’s town hall in Queens yesterday and saying that humanity should eat babies, among other ridiculous things, to address the climate crisis.
Viral video from the incident shows a woman posing as a supporter of AOC and wearing a shirt that reads, “Save the Planet, Eat the Children.” Many people clearly thought she was mentally disturbed, but LaRouche PAC, a fringe organization that believes climate change is a hoax, was behind the stunt, according to the group’s Twitter account.
“I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: We have got to start eating babies,” the unnamed woman says, according to video captured by C-SPAN.
“I’m so happy that you are really supporting a Green New Deal, but it’s not enough,” the woman told Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez as others in the room looked on in confusion. “Even if we were to bomb Russia, we still have too many people, too much pollution. So we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem. Just stopping having babies is not enough. We need to eat the babies.”
AOC can be seen trying to calm the woman down, repeatedly saying “it’s okay,” and ignoring the comments about babies. While the woman’s reference to “bombing” Russia may seem odd, the group supports both President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“It was us,” the LaRouche organization tweeted late Thursday, in response to a question about whether the woman was serious. “Malthusianism isn’t new, Jonathan Swift knew that. Sometimes, only satire works.”
President Donald Trump got into the fray last night, tweeting “AOC is a Wack Job!” in response to the viral video. Trump likely had no idea that the woman in the video was one of his supporters.
The connection of this stunt to LaRouche was first noted by London-based Matthew Sweet, author of the book Operation Chaos, which looks at conspiracy theorists of the late 1960s, including Lyndon LaRouche Jr., the late cofounder of the group. LaRouche, who was perhaps best known for his antisemitic conspiracy theories, died this past February. LaRouche claimed that Jews were actually funding the KKK and said that the Queen of England wanted to have him killed.
“It is textbook stuff,” Sweet told Gizmodo via Twitter DM, referring to yesterday’s bizarre stunt. “They have been in this game for decades.”
Whether it was staged or real, one thing remains certain: it perfectly exposed just how RADICAL the radical left has become.
When people can't tell if "eat the babies" is real or not, your political party is DONE.
