While AOC enjoys her taxpayer funded vacation doing whatever it is that leftwing egomaniacs do, people in the city she represents are burying their loved ones on a daily basis.
Not because they have the Covid-19 Virus, although many in the state of New York have, but because her insane ideas are gaining traction in local government-and the shootings just won’t stop.
Now she wants you to believe that children are getting murdered by stray bullets because starving New Yorkers are just looking for a crust of bread.
From our friends at Fox News:
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested over the weekend that the crime surge in New York City is likely because struggling residents are forced to shoplift in order to “feed their child.”
In a virtual town hall meeting she hosted Thursday, some clips of which were shared by The Hill, the 30-year-old Democratic congresswoman was asked about the troubling uptick in violent crimes overtaking the city.
“Do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the United States right now?” she responded. “The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the Great Recession?”
“Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent and so they go out, and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “so they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry.”
The New York Police Department (NYPD) has reported a staggering increase in shootings and violent crimes in recent weeks, as officials warn there’s “a storm on the horizon” amid calls for changes.
On Saturday, the New York Post reported 15 shootings in 15 hours, just one week after the city saw a bloody July Fourth weekend with 44 shootings and at least eight killed.
The congresswoman and vocal supporter of the “defund police” movement insisted, however, that the crime spike is unrelated to the $1 billion NYPD budget cuts announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio, which have not yet taken effect, she claimed.
The New York Democrat recently spoke out against the budget cuts, arguing that they don’t go far enough to entirely defund the department, and accused de Blasio of using “budget tricks” and “funny math” in the calculation.”
Yes, my friends...because they need bread.
Like this guy:
Or these guys:
Wow look at all that bread...
The stores must have sold out.
Maybe this poor little boy had one crust left in his stroller before he was killed:
Here's what former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee thought of the outrageous claim, according to The Hill:
“Her saying, ‘People are hungry so they’re going out and lifting bread’ — no, they are going out and killing people randomly,” said Huckabee, a Fox News contributor. “You don't kill a 1-year-old because you need some bread. That doesn’t put bread on your table. And that's why the absurdity of her remarks have to be called out.”
“She needs to walk it back and recognize that violent crime has nothing to do with people's lifting some bread,” he added."
AOC is a fanatic.
There is no denying that now, more than ever.
It's like jihadists hiding in Palestinian schools launching missiles at Israel and then burning American flags because we don't want to give them money anymore.
AOC doesn't respect life enough to condemn the murder of children and innocent adults in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, LA, or any liberal big city you could name pff the top of your head.
Your children's lives are just collateral damage in her war against American values.
Pay attention New York because while you bury your dead she'll be hiding behind her security detail on Capitol Hill.
