WATCH: Ocasio-Cortez’s Townhall Overrun with Angry Protesters

1981: U.S. national debt hits $1 trillion.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) town hall event was derailed by a group of angry protesters calling for her removal.

The 33-year-old lawmaker is up for re-election in November, running against her Republican challenger Tina Forte, who owns a local business. Video of the event, which took place in Queens, shows protesters chanting “AOC has got to go” and holding up signs denouncing the far-left congresswoman.

“Wake up New York. Vote for Tina Forte. F–k AOC,” one sign read.

“Very classy. Thank you, sir,” Ocasio-Cortez said, indicating the sign.

Ocasio-Cortez eventually tried to reason with the crowd, attempting to open a dialogue.

“Respectfully, ma’am, you’re saying, ‘Ask us why’ — Y’all have been talking for 20 minutes, okay? We know why. We know why you’re mad,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Let’s talk about it.”

The congresswoman’s plea was unsuccessful, the New York Post noted, as a protester responded with obscene remarks.

Later on, the lights in the auditorium went out, prompting a member of Ocasio-Cortez’s security detail to escort her from the stage. She returned after the lights came back on, about one minute later.

“I’m not allowed to be in a room with the lights turned off,” she said.

An AOC spokesperson was dismissive of the protesters, telling the New York Post that the demonstrators “are part of a far-right wing group that regularly protests at vaccine clinics, against LGBTQ rights, etc. They were not constituents.”

    Apparently, it’s only okay when conservatives get targeted.

    Sorry, what is good fir the goose is good for the gander. At least, the event wasn’t cancelled.

  2. Don says:

    She’s only got what she deserved. She’s worthless to humanity.

  3. LHL says:

    She’s not allowed to be in a darkened room cause everyone wants to have s*x with her. Just ask her she’ll tell you.

  4. Gerald Ladd says:

    She’ll get re elected. Remember, she’s in a solid demonRAT district filled with people of low IQ.

  5. R. T. Neary says:

    She is supposed to be an excellent bartender.
    That’s what a Boston University education got her!
