(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed in typical dramatic fashion on Tuesday that Fox News host Tucker Carlson was the root cause of the many death and rape threats that she has recieved since her rise to celebrity, the Business Insider reported.
“We’re acting like it’s normal. It’s not normal,” Ocasio–Cortez said in an appearance on a popular left-wing podcast, “The Breakfast Club.”
AOC suggested that right wing commentators are covertly calling for political violence without being open about those claims.
“I can tell you 110%—one of the largest sources of death threats that I get is Tucker Carlson,” she claimed, briefly breaking into black dialect. “Every time that dude puts his name in my mouf, the next day—I mean this is, like, what stochastic terrorism is.”
The term she referenced is a newly invented buzzword being deployed by leftists as a catch-all to claim any right-wing criticism is an incitement to violence.
AOC then offered up her own definition for stochastic terrorism:
“When you use a very large platform to turn up the temperature and target an individual until something happens. And then when something happens, because it’s indirect, you say, ‘Oh, I had nothing to do with that,'” she said.
Calson “plays a massive role in political violence,” the self-declared socialist and “Squad” leader alleged.
AOC has a long history of going on melodramatic rants about how men are constantly threatening her.
“People ask me questions about the future—and, realistically, I can’t even tell you if I’m going to be alive in September, and that weighs very heavily on me,” she said earlier this year.
“Imagine working a job and your bosses don’t like you and folks on your team are suspicious of you. And then the competing company is trying to kill you,” she added.
Carlson, who has routinely made fun of the congresswoman for her theatrical ways, earlier this year mocked AOC for being a “stooge.”
“Like Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, [Ocasio–Cortez] is just a willing tool of soulless corporate power, who will always side with Google, JP Morgan and Raytheon against the ‘working people’ she claims to represent,” he said.
