Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her hypocrisy were on display this week as she bemoaned being harassed by political jester Alex Stein.
"AOC, my favorite big booty Latina," Alex Stein said as the New York congresswoman walked into the Capitol. "I love you, AOC. You're my favorite. She wants to kill babies and she's so beautiful. She looks very beautiful in that dress. Very sexy. Look at that booty on AOC. That's my favorite big booty Latina. Look how sexy she looks in that dress."
I am not a fan of Stein — I don't find him funny or witty. His antics are pointless, equivalent to those of a circus clown. If he wanted to confront AOC on her stance on abortion, then he should have had enough courage to do just that. Stein acting like a court jester while making borderline ethnic slurs doesn't accomplish anything positive.
That said, it is a bit rich for AOC to whine about being harassed given her past support for harassing those she disagrees with, including Brett Kavanaugh and other Supreme Court justices. The person who applauded the harassment of Kavanaugh in public now whines about the Capitol not being a place designed to protect women? Yeah, I'll pass.
Her gender has nothing to do with it. It's her politics, and she deserves no more and no less protection than anyone else. Her melodramatic response is yet another example of left-wing politicians living in a world of "rules for thee but not for me." Fortunately for AOC, her harassment was from a two-bit wannabe comedian, not some deranged individual who wanted to assassinate her. She ought to consider that next time she encourages her own fans to harass other people.
