Military veterans stormed out of a Bronx community board meeting after Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (aka – “Bronx Bolshevik”) repeatedly slammed the United States and its foreign policy positions.
Last night (June 1), Ocasio Cortez held a private meeting with members of Bronx’s Community Board 11. It was one of AOC’s rare visits with her Bronx constituents.
Army veteran: ‘I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore’
“I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore,” Army veteran Anthony Vitaliano told the New York Post. “I got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out.”
Vitaliano — who also worked with the NYPD for 38 years — was disgusted that the former bartender kept blaming the United States for the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East. Keep in mind that the Middle East has been roiled by tribal warfare for centuries.

Silvio Mazzella — a Vietnam War veteran and treasurer of Community Board 11 — says AOC’s constant America-bashing insults him and other military veterans who risk their lives for the country that Ocasio Cortez gleefully trashes.
“She knocks the country, she knocks the president!” Mazzella said. “Talking about America [like that] really turned me off completely.”
At another point, AOC blasted both President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as autocrats.
Reminder: Israel is a longtime US ally and the only true ally America has in the Middle East, which is infested with anti-American Muslim countries that want to annihilate us.
AOC doesn’t care about local issues that affect her constituents
While she blathered on about foreign policy to Bronx residents, Ocasio-Cortez ignored local issues that actually affect her constituents. For instance, several board members complained about problems with missed mail deliveries (a federal issue) and graffiti on public property.
“Did she care about the issues? [No!] She wrote them down,” said Vitaliano. “The jury will be out on the local issues.”
Keep in mind that Ocasio-Cortez was elected by her Congressional district to represent those constituents — not to use her political office to raise her national profile so she could run for president one day (that’s exactly what she’s planning).

AOC thinks getting 110,000 votes qualifies her to run the country
While AOC has emerged as the de facto leader of the Democratic Party due to her leftist “qualifications” (i.e., she’s a minority and a female), keep in mind that she won her post by getting just 110,000 votes.
There are 8.6 million people in New York City. There was abysmal turnout in NYC during the November 2018 elections because there was no voter enthusiasm. It was either AOC or some Republican that few New Yorkers had ever heard of. NYC is 90% liberal, so there was zero chance that AOC would lose to a Republican in New York.
So basically, this vapid bartender wants to tell 328 million Americans what to do when she only got 110,000 votes from equally dimwitted New Yorkers. Yet the mainstream media has crowned her the Savior of the Democratic Party.
Perhaps AOC should go back to doing what she does best: Evading taxes and serving beer.
And don’t forget AOC’s top skill: Race-baiting.
