Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave an interview with New York Daily News where she talked about getting death threats. Ocasio-Cortez used this opportunity to blame right-wing news. Apparently, Ocasio-Cortez believes she is the only person that’s in the political world that gets death threats.
Ocasio-Cortez stated, “It’s very clear that when right-wing media starts to heat up, that’s directly correlated to the amount of violent targeted threats we get. There’s clearly a correlation between the intensity of Fox News and Breitbart and all those folks and the amount of threats that we get.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued, “It’s a pretty regular thing, so we just have to be super vigilant.”
If right-wing news are responsible for her death threats then who is to blame for the death threats I receive from people on the left. I personally receive death threats from radical people on the left but rarely mention anything about it because they are insane fringe people.
Ocasio-Cortez blaming her death threats on right-wing news shows her immaturity and lack of realizing there are radicals on the fringe that no-one can control. Not to mention it is extraordinarily rare to get a serious death threat.
