Tucker Carlson shut down Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with just one question
There is no doubt Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the leaders of the Democrat Party.
Ocasio-Cortez uses her social media account to set the party’s talking points and policy agenda.
But then Tucker Carlson shut down Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with just one question.
Americans were horrified at images from New York City where violent anti-cop protesters stormed subway stations in protest of police that enforce the mass transit fares.
Anarchists jumped over the turn style where subway riders pay the fare when entering the station.
The protesters also expressed violent anti-police sentiments to “kill cops.”
This was all met with an approving tweet from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Tucker Carlson had former police officer — and candidate for Queens District Attorney — Joseph Murray on his show, and he asked Murray about Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of “punching cops.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Extremists on Saturday protested in New York City over the price of mass transit and aimed their anger at the police who enforce the law.
The weekend protest encouraged people to “kill cops” and to avoid paying the $2.57 subway fare. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her approval of the demonstration Saturday, comparing “mass incarceration” with enforcement of the fare.
“Arresting people who can’t afford a $2.75 fare makes no one safer and destabilizes our community,” she said
. . .
“What do you make of a sitting member of Congress endorsing the punch a cop movement?” Carlson asked him.
“Disgusting. I’m all for the First Amendment. People should express themselves. But when you are talking about encouraging people to commit crimes, particularly striking police officers, that’s outrageous,” said Murray.
Public officials are supposed to stand for the rule of law and respecting institutions like law enforcement.
Instead, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praised violent thugs who want to harm cops.
