The MeToo Movement has destroyed the lives of men across the country and even across the world. It has diminished actual rape and caused many survivors of rape not to get the help they need because so many false accusations fill up the news, social media, and real police investigations.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, “That attack on the Capitol, you know White Supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways. There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence, and um, I didn’t think that I was going to be killed, I thought other things were going to happen to me as well.” What AOC was talking about is rape. She felt that the unarmed Capitol rioters were going to rape her and kill her. My mind is blown.
The CNN reporter who was interviewing her responded, “So what you’re telling me right now is that you didn’t only think you were going to die, you thought you were going to be raped?” AOC replied, “Yeah.”
And what makes AOC think that? Back in February, AOC said on a live stream that she was a survivor of sexual assault. While no sexual assault is in any way acceptable or tolerated, and AOC is vital for speaking about the personal subject, the reflection of sexual assault from the past and the subjective perception that sexual assault will occur are two very separate things. AOC wasn’t going to be sexually assaulted any more than anyone was. That wasn’t the objective of the Capitol riot. AOC was in the Cannon Building, which isn’t attached to the Capitol, and no intentions of rioters show that AOC was a target. It’s much more likely that rioters didn’t even know their way around the Capitol, much less where AOC’s office was or what her location was at the time the Capitol was breached.
AOC should be ashamed of herself for attempting to mislead the public about sexual assault. Anyone who has falsely claimed to have been sexually attacked should be prosecuted. They have no idea what it’s like to survive the sexual assault and the long-term consequences.
If you listen to what AOC says, she says, “White Supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways.” How so? Maybe in Bill Clinton’s White House, but to make that claim in 2021 is ridiculous. Look at how many Black Americans thrive in politics and span across the wealth spectrum. It’s false. And after that, she says, “There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence, and um, I didn’t think that I was just going to be killed, I thought other things were going to happen to me as well.” How are sexualization, White Supremacy, and patriarchy even close to being linked? Unless it’s the beginning of a bad joke, “Sexualization, White Supremacy, and patriarchy walk into AOC’s office,” there is no correlation between those three things.
Stay tuned for the next ridiculous lie that comes out of AOC’s mouth. We all know she’s not capable of telling the truth.
