AOC 'Supporter' Loses Her Mind Over Green New Deal: 'We Got to Start Eating Babies!'
Woman declares 'are running out of time' to save the planet during Ocasio-Cortez town hall
An unhinged "AOC supporter" appeared to lose her mind over the Green New Deal when she declared that "we got to start eating babies" to save the planet during a town hall event with radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
While discussing environmental issues at the Thursday evening event, the unidentified female audience member stood up to take the microphone, declaring that there are only “a few months left” and that it's time to “start eating babies!”
The woman praised Ocasio-Cortez during the rant, but insisted that "even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people."
The woman went on to argue that there's "too much pollution" and offered her solution that "we have to get rid of the babies."

“We are not going to be here for much longer because of the climate crisis,” the woman said as she took the mic.
“We only have a few months left!”
“I love that you support the Green Deal, but it’s not getting rid of fossil fuel, it’s not going to solve the problem fast enough,” the woman continued.
“A Swedish professor [said] we can eat dead people but that’s not fast enough.
"So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: ‘We got to start eating babies! We don’t have enough time! There is too much CO2.”
“All of you..," she said as she looked around the room at other audience members, "…you are a pollutant, too much CO2."
"We have to start now, please, you are so great, I’m so happy that you really are supporting New Green Deal, but it’s not enough, you know, even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people,” the woman continued.
“Too much pollution, so we have to get rid of the babies! That’s a big problem. We need to eat the babies!”
Staffers seemed to attempt to comfort the woman and settle her down a little as she appeared extremely distressed.
Ocasio-Cortez’s attempted to address her calls, saying: “Luckily we have more than a few months. We need to hit net zero in several years.”

Video of the outburst has quickly gone viral across social media, with one upload gathering millions of views in just a few hours.
Ocasio-Cortez has been widely panned for riling up her supporters to back her Green New Deal using fear tactics about the environment.
Many critics online noted that Ocasio-Cortez didn't dispute the woman's claims that society should be killing and eating babies.
Among the critics on Twitter were President Trump, his son Donald Jr.
Don Jr. shared the video, saying the woman "seems like a normal AOC supporter to me."

The president shared his son's tweet, simply stating "AOC is a wack job!"

Ocasio-Cortez quickly responded to the president, declaring Trump to be "a criminal who betrays our country."

Later, Ocasio-Cortez showed concern for the sudden outburst by one of her audience members tweeting: "Hey everyone!
"We had a fabulous town hall tonight & I'll be highlighting some moments from it.
"At one point I was concerned there was a woman in crisis & want to ensure we treat the situation compassionately.
"Let's not mock or make a spectacle. &let's work on Medicare for All!'
"This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it's not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse," Ocasio-Cortez continued.
"Be a decent human being and knock it off."
UPDATE: A group called Lyndon LaRouche PAC claims it was behind the incident that was meant to "troll AOC." The organization posted on Twitter: "LaRouchePAC trolls AOC, AOC doesn't rule out eating babies. #EatTheBabies"
While we are unable to verify whether the group was behind the incident, it did occur and the woman did make the comments - that Ocasio-Cortez didn't entirely disagree with. It's likely that the woman wasn't an actual AOC supporter.
