AOC Claims Trump Voters Plotted to Rape & Kill Her on Jan 6, Blames 'White Supremacy'
'There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence'
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she not only feared for life on January 6th but also feared she would be raped.
During an interview with Dana Bash on CNN, AOC said:
“White supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways.”
“There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence, and I didn’t think that I was just going to be killed, I thought other things were going to happen to me as well.”
“You didn’t only think you were going to die, you thought you were going to be raped?” host Dana Bash asked.
“Yeah, I thought I was,” Ocasio-Cortez replied.
Ocasio-Cortez’s recalled the events back in February where she claimed she took cover in her office.
”And so I run back into my office,” Ocasio-Cortez said at the time.
“I slam my door. There’s another kind of like back area to my office, and I open it, and there’s a closet and a bathroom.
"And I jump into my bathroom…In between the screams and the yells,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
“I mean, I thought I was going to die.”
But Red State debunked AOC's accounts:
“AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down.
"If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building, which is nearby, but a different building.
"But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building."
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, said there were never any rioters in their hall, so there was "no physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.”
In a tweet, Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) destroyed AOC’s story:

My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize? pic.twitter.com/Tl1GiPSOft
In a separate tweet, she added, "Maps cut through the rhetoric."
"AOC Wasn’t in the Capitol Building During Her ‘Near Death’ Experience," Jack Posobiec wrote on Twitter.
Neon Nettle reported that AOC offered an emotional recollection of how she hid behind a bathroom door and heard the police officer "break into" her office."
"I thought I was going to die," she said.
"I have never been quieter in my entire life."

AOC’s sit-down with Dana Bash was also covered by the DailyMail, which included a clip of her alleged harrowing experience on January 6th.
AOC's accounts came in preview for the CNN series Being.
"One of the reasons why that impact was so doubled that day is because of the misogyny and the racism that is so deeply rooted and animated that attack on the Capitol," she said.
Candace Owens blasted AOC on Twitter:
"I’d like to remind everyone that I live in Washington D.C – just a few blocks from the Capitol building,’ ‘Long story short, Ted Cruz tried to murder me too. #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett"
