AOC’s Meltdown at Pro-Palestinian Protestors

( – Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) (D-NY) is one of the most vocal opponents of Israel’s stance on Palestine. She has repeatedly criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and demanded a ceasefire. But that didn’t protect her from Gaza protesters recently.

On March 3, AOC and her fiancé went to see a movie in Brooklyn. Pro-Gaza protesters confronted the congresswoman outside of the theater. A video of the incident shows the group following her and demanding she call Israel’s war against Hamas a “genocide.”

One of the protesters said, “You refuse to call it a genocide.”

The New York congresswoman responded to the protesters, telling them what they were doing was “not OK.” The protester shot back that the “genocide happening” in Israel wasn’t okay, and accused AOC of not being against it.

AOC called the protester a liar. The group continued following her, accusing her of not calling the war a genocide. The congresswoman then looked at the camera and accused the protester of trying to get video so they could cut it down and edit her words so they were out of context. She told them that she already said what was happening was a genocide and that they were pretending she didn’t.

The representative told the protesters that they weren’t helping their people. “You’re not helping them,” she said. She walked away from them at that point.

Days before the incident in Brooklyn, AOC called on President Joe Biden to use his State of the Union Address to call for a ceasefire. She said that she’d hoped one would have already been negotiated but that she hopes he uses the event before the joint session of Congress to speak about the necessity of ending the bombing campaign in Gaza.

AOC was one of the first members of Congress to call for a ceasefire in the days following the October 7 terrorist attack in Israel.
