Ocasio-Cortez blasts cowardly GOP colleagues for ignoring MAGA violence until it hit home

The fallout from the admission by some GOP representatives to Congressman Jason Crow (D-CO) that they voted against the second impeachment of Donald Trump because they were “afraid for their lives” after threats by angry and deluded Trump supporters continues today.


Progressive New York City Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter this morning to chastise her cowardly Republican colleagues for their tunnel-vision when it comes to caring about anything that doesn’t personally intrude upon their lives.

Ocasio-Cortez’s account of the threats that she’s faced as she carried out her constitutional responsibilities should force the frightened GOP colleagues to hang their heads in shame for caving into the types of terrorist threats that their party has previously been so voluble about defying when they are emanating from America’s foreign enemies.

Faced with domestic terrorists with a similar agenda and tactics as the Taliban, these spineless Republicans would rather betray their constitutional duties than risk a shred of personal danger to support our nation’s democratic principles.

These are likely the same Republican representatives who regularly demonize the Bronx-born congresswoman as a radical leftist intent on toppling our government and forcing dreaded principles of “socialism” — like universal healthcare and a guaranteed living wage — on the proud capitalists comprising the mob that stormed the Capitol.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez rightfully paints the cowering GOP lawmakers as lacking the intestinal fortitude to carry out their sworn duties.

She doesn’t specifically call for their resignation or expulsion from Congress, but if their constituents can’t see these representatives’ failures to measure up to their jobs and demand that they hand off their responsibilities to people more qualified to handle them, then the rest of America should do their utmost to help convince them that their political futures are facing an even more fatal threat.

After AOC was done shaming the Republicans in her own chamber of Congress, she turned her attention to excoriating a GOP senator whose own political standing has taken a high-altitude nose-dive since he helped lead the opposition to accepting the electoral college vote naming Joe Biden as president, Josh Hawley of Missouri.

After NBC News National Political Reporter Sahil Kapur posted a tweet that explained Senator Hawley’s rationalization for his seditious behavior, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez replied with her own translation of the disgraced politician’s words.

It remains to be seen whether Senator Hawley has completely tanked his political career and whether he will face legal consequences for his incendiary behavior best exemplified by his fist-pumping salute to the “Save the Steal” mob.

The status of Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s political star, on the other hand, remains shining on brightly into the foreseeable future.
