AOC Attended Jordan Neely’s Funeral, Took Selfies with Fans

'He should read a Bible...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made an appearance at the funeral of Jordan Neely, a man who previously died on a subway after Daniel Penny, a former Marine, defended other people from him.

Ocasio-Cortez was seen at the funeral of Neely on Friday, according to the Post Millennial. The homeless man died after being placed in a chokehold by Penny after Neely threatened passengers on a New York City subway car.

At the funeral, one member of the public asked Ocasio-Cortez what she thought about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis calling Penny a Good Samaritan, to which she replied “He should read a Bible,” implying that DeSantis is not a good Christian. Despite these remarks, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t present herself as a Christian during the funeral either by constantly posing for photographs with people from her security-protected SUV.

The Daily Mail reported that Ocasio-Cortez was not the only prominent leftist who attended the funeral. Among others who came to the funeral for political activism were Rev. Al Sharpton, New York City public advocate Jumaane Williams, and Lt. Gpv. Antonio Delgado.

After Neely died on a subway train, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that he was “murdered.” She expressed her anger toward Penny because he wasn’t charged at the time.

“But bc Jordan was houseless and crying for food in a time when the city is raising rents and stripping services to militarize itself while many in power demonize the poor, the murderer gets protected w/ passive headlines + no charges,” she wrote.

“It’s disgusting.”

Even though Ocasio-Cortez tried to portray Neely as a peaceful homeless person, the criminal record of the man shows otherwise.

“I don’t care if I have to kill an F, I will. I’ll go to jail, I’ll take a bullet,” the man who has been arrested over 40 times said.

Penny stepped in only after Neely started threatening passengers, according to one of the witnesses.

Since then, Penny was charged with manslaughter. So far, the GiveSendGo fundraiser has received over $2 million in donations.
