Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lost it in a House Oversign Committee hearing after a Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) repeatedly questioned an eco-leftist activist, Raya Salter.
The Daily Wire reports:
“In the four years that I’ve sat on this committee, I have never seen members of Congress, Republican or Democrat, disrespect a witness in the way that I have seen them disrespect you today,” AOC pontificated. “I do not care what party they are in. I’ve never seen anything like that.”
“And for the gentleman of Louisiana, and the comfort that he felt in yelling at you like that,” AOC claimed, “there’s more than one way to get a point across.”
“And, frankly, men who treat women like that in public, I fear how they treat them in private,” she concluded. “We can be better than this. We don’t have to resort to yelling.”
A review of the exchange between Higgins and Salter shows that Salter was louder toward Higgins than he was to her as he repeatedly tried to get her to answer the questions he was asking.
AOC has repeatedly had outbursts in front of Congress, and she regularly shifts the blame – accusing those who disagree with her of being sexist and/or racist. Climate change and AOC’s Green New Deal are emotional topics for her, and on her Twitter, she has repeatedly posted about how pollution and climate change are causing irreversible damage to the world, claiming we only have a few years left to live on Earth.
