AOC Demands Police Do Something After Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘Aggressively Confronts’ Her


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s called on law enforcement Wednesday to protect the halls of Congress from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

The confrontation: As Ocasio-Cortez exited the House chamber in the afternoon, Green, a freshman Republican from Georgia, “aggressively confronted” the Democrat from New York, the Washington Post reported.

  • Greene loudly demanded to know why Ocasio-Cortez supports “terrorist groups” antifa and Black Lives Matters and once again challenged her to publicly debate her “radical socialist” ideas.
  • “You don’t care about the American people,” Greene yelled. “Why do you support terrorists and antifa?”

“She’s a chicken,” Greene observed to a group of onlookers.

The complaint: Ocasio-Cortez spokeswoman Lauren Hitt subsequently issued a statement urging House leaders and police to take action over Greene’s “attacks.”

  • “We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff — especially as many offices are discussing reopening,” Hitt said.
  • “One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene’s attacks.”

The backstory: Ocasio-Cortez has been a vocal defender of the “defund the police” movement and has said she feared a Capitol Police officer intended to kill her during the Jan. 6. riot.

Nonetheless, Greene later in February hung a poster outside her office that read “There are TWO genders” after neighboring Rep. Marie Newman, a Democrat from Illinois, provoked her with a transgender pride flag.

  • Following a January confrontation with Greene in a hallway of Congress, Rep. Cori Bush, a Democrat from Missouri, asked to move her office away from Greene’s “for my team’s safety.”
