The day after police detained an armed 26-year-old man in front of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home in Maryland who confessed he was there to murder Kavanaugh, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (AOC) the far-left Democrat from New York, bragged about helping to block a bill that would increase security for the Supreme Court.

In a video, AOC shared to her Instagram purporting to show her rushing to the floor of the House of Representatives to object to unanimous consent for the bill, she says:

I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there is going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court Supplemental Protection Bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled.

Oh, so we can pass protections for us and here easily, right? But we can’t pass protections for everyday people? I think not.

 The potential assassin, Nicholas John Roske, was found with a Glock 17 handgun, two loaded magazines, a tactical knife, pepper spray, and zip ties, along with a hammer, a screwdriver, and other burglary tools in his backpack.

 Roske claimed he was suicidal and wanted to give his life meaning by killing Kavanaugh over the leaked draft Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe vs Wade.

Despite the increased threats against the Justices, and the attempted murder of Kavanaugh the day before, AOC still did all she could to block the bill to provide added 24-hour security to the Justices and their families.

The bill is likely to come up for a vote in the House next week. Meanwhile the nine Justices are currently being protected full time.

I know why I do not have a lots of money after bills , cigarettes and food and that is because I can not have the funds to purchase a long range sniper rifle . God is protecting the idiots in office hoping that they reverse course and behave humanly which is impossible in My world God . Sorry if I offended You but that is a truth at present times .

But…AOC, you and Piglosi have innocent people in jail without due process (many who were not even in the capitol), because YOU pretended your life was in danger.

If those people were part of the insurrection or insurrection-planning, they are guilty of treason and should be thrown into the slammer. Prison is too good for them!

There was NO insurrection!! False flag by Peelousy. Eventually all will come out and the democrats will pay big time. They and they alone are responsible for everything since georgeie floyd. Making a huge statue to a criminal???? disgusting, should be torn down. There were fbi, antifa, blm and others planted at the begining of the protest at the Capital before Magas started going peacefully to the Capital.. Which until these idiots ramped up the crowd on purpose, it was a peaceful protest. In any event, this protest does not in any way, shape or form match the destruction that happened in 2019, 2020, and continues today with random killings everywhere!

Sounds like AOC Needs to have her security taken away because obviously she doesn’t feel the need to be protecting others and because of that need not protect others she does not need to be protected
