WASHINGTON, DC–Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has identified as being handcuffed during pro-abortion insurrection at the US Supreme Court.
As the Daily Mail notes, “Ocasio-Cortez was seen walking escorted away by police with her hands crossed behind her back, as if she were in handcuffs, but she was not. At one point she uncrossed her hands and raised her fists to the other protesters.”
“Hey, I identify as being arrested and handcuffed,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And as we know, it’s how someone identifies that’s important.”
Ocasio-Cortez said that she felt like she was being left out as the January 6th insurrectionists were receiving so much attention.
“I felt like, hey, I’m not participating in democracy, so I should be arrested. So, that’s how I identify now,” AOC said.
