Squad Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) exploded at pro-Palestinian protestors at a movie theater in Brooklyn after they demanded the lefty lawmaker call Israel’s military campaign in Gaza a “genocide.”

From The New York Post:

Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was with her fiancé, Riley Roberts, when she lost her cool and dropped an f-bomb as a couple of protesters badgered her at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema around 5 p.m. Monday.

The protesters complained that Ocasio-Cortez, 34, hasn’t publicly called Israel’s bombing of the Palestinian territory a “genocide” as they accosted her inside the downtown Brooklyn theater, according to the footage.

“I need you to understand that this is not OK,” she told one male protester who held an iPhone near her face.

“It’s not OK that there’s a genocide happening and you’re not actively against it,” the protester shot back.

“You’re lying,” Ocasio-Cortez countered as she walked down an escalator with her beau.

“I already said that it was and y’all are just gonna pretend that it wasn’t over and over again. It’s f–ked up, man,” she railed. “And you’re not helping these people, and you’re not helping them, you’re not helping them.”

The protestors followed AOC down the street — the whole exchange was recorded and shared on social media. Conservative commentator Benny Johnson was quick to remind AOC of her previous thoughts on protesting; he shared an old AOC post:

“The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable. Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point,” AOC posted in 2020.
