To be clear, what Stein says is boorish, classless and rude — and would be entirely without merit if it weren’t for his reference to “she wants to kill babies.” The near-satanic enthusiasm of AOC and a dismally large percentage of the Democratic party for the infanticide of abortion deserves public condemnation in almost any context. [firefly_poll] But to be equally clear, what’s on display here isn’t so much an utter lack of manners by a political activist making a point as it is the utter hypocrisy of the lawmaker herself. Here’s the first video she posted about the incident.
Here is a video he posted of the incident. I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today pic.twitter.com/RdwCNBDIBb— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 14, 2022
This is the same Ocasio-Cortez who exuded contempt for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when protests outside a Washington, D.C., restaurant last week forced him to leave by a rear exit. Her lame attempt on Monday to compare her own experiences to that disgraceful incident was her first misfire of the week. This is the same Ocasio-Cortez who declared in a Twitter post in 2020 — at the end of a year that saw American cities burn in Black Lives Matter riots that the mainstream media pretended were “mostly peaceful” — that “the whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable.” Obviously, the Democratic socialist has a different idea about it when she is personally the “ppl” who’s “uncomfortable.” Of course, she had plenty of sympathy on social media. No leftist is alone in the fetid cesspool of Twitter liberalism. But there were many users who saw the hypocrisy for what it was.

You voted against a bill giving SCOTUS families security — even after one was the center of an assassination plot.Today someone said something rude to you —but protected speech— and you’re bummed you work in an institution that allows it? Uhm ok. — Jason Rantz on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) July 14, 2022
I think the President’s press secretary said it’s called “Democracy” when it happened to SCOTUS That pendulum is something, huh?— Silent ️Anne Up Your Giggy (@SevenSoda2) July 14, 2022
Again, the clearly sexual content of Stein’s words push them over the line of acceptable discourse. The point is that in the worldview of the modern Democratic Party and the mainstream media, much, much worse behavior is acceptable if it’s visited upon conservatives.
I believe that elected officials and judges shouldn’t be verbally or physically accosted at work, home or in restaurants, but AOC only complains about it when she’s the victim.When it happens to others, it’s merely a *discomfort* Don’t they sell mirrors in Washington DC? pic.twitter.com/VhUgdiaju7 — Joel M.

It’s worth pointing out here that literally nothing happened here beyond AOC’s reaction. Stein’s words didn’t keep the congresswoman from going to work. In fact, if she’d kept power-walking up the Capitol steps and ignored the whole thing, it would have passed into history without a second thought. (It’s also worth noting that a man accompanying Rep. Ocasio-Cortez looked suspiciously like her boyfriend. If it was him, he must not be the protective type.) Conservative targets of progressive viciousness have much stronger grounds to complain — like, say, Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, who almost died at the hands of a murderous Bernie Sanders supporter in 2017, or Kavanaugh, who was the target of an assassination plot in June by an apparently deranged supporter of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that established abortion in the United States. (See “satanic,” above.) But in the worldview of AOC and her fellow leftists, political protest is only out of hand when political progressives are being targeted. As long as they keep pushing the undeniable hypocrisy — and they can’t help themselves — the hits aren’t going to stop. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
