Ocasio-Cortez Endorses Criminal Activity In NYC While Making False Claim


Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) backed criminal activity in New York City on Saturday as she supported those who stormed a subway station and refused to pay the required fare to use the service.

“Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops,” The New York Post reported. “The demonstration formed soon after 7 p.m. on the streets near the Barclays Center, with protesters unfurling large banners that read ‘F—k the police’ and ‘Don’t let these pigs touch us.’”

In a tweet, Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed that the United States’ criminal justice system was a “mass incarceration” system “that jails the poor to free the rich” – a claim that has no factual basis.
