Some of the same leftists who believe “rioting is the language of the unheard” and that “looting is reparations” are triggered over an old video of then-private citizen and conservative activist Marjorie Taylor Greene gently berating then-newly elected New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outside of her congressional office.
Reportedly published on Facebook in 2019 but later deleted, the video re-emerged on social media Friday courtesy of Andrew Kaczynski, a “reporter” for CNN. It’s unclear how Kaczynski got hold of it.
The video shows Greene standing outside the congresswoman’s locked office with several other conservative activists complaining via the mail slot about being denied a chance to talk to her.
New: A since-deleted video from 2019 shows MTG harassing @AOC‘s office through a locked door. Calling her “crazy eyes” and telling her through the office’s mailbox slot to “get rid of your diaper” while telling the office to open the door and come out. https://t.co/QgcJucs4o8 pic.twitter.com/ccTufF90Z9

In the clip above, Greene is shown at first simply expressing her policy disagreements.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I’m an American citizen. I pay your salary through the taxes that you collect for me through the IRS because I’m a taxpaying citizen of the United States. I’m a woman, I’m a female business owner, and I’m proud to be an American woman,” she says.
“And I do not support your socialist policies, and I do not support your murderous abortion policies. As a mother of three children, I’m appalled at New York’s law for abortion, and it needs to end, and it needs to stop now. You’re bringing God’s judgment on our country, and I’m against it, as well as my friends,” she adds.
An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll conducted last year found that 58 percent of Americans had an “unfavorable” view of socialism. Likewise, a poll conducted in 2019 found that an overwhelming 75 percent majority of New York residents opposed late-term abortion, despite Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s then-recent passage of a law that eliminated virtually all abortion restrictions, as reported by the Catholic News Agency.
In the video, Greene continues by mocking the congresswoman for refusing to speak with her.
“So you need to stop being a baby and stop locking your door, and come out and face the American citizens that you serve. If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens, instead of us having to use a little flap,” she says.
That’s the brunt of her allegedly “abusive” behavior, but it’s been enough to provoke incredible triggerings from the left including, reportedly, from Ocasio-Cortez:

What’s going on with MTG & AOC is not two women fighting. MTG is harassing, bullying & threatening a colleague at their shared workplace. Reducing this bad conduct to a cat fight is to promote misogyny. Just bc a person is powerful doesn’t mean she isn’t in danger.

The problem is that Ocasio-Cortez and her far-left supporters have vocally and virulently supported far more disturbing, harassing behavior.
Two weeks after an Antifa extremist fire-bombed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Tacoma, Washington back in 2019, she asserted that allegedly “marginalized” people “have no choice but to riot.”

After several violent left-wing extremists were arrested during a riotous “counter-protest” against a benign Straight Pride Parade in Boston later that same year, Ocasio-Corrtez smeared the event as a “white supremacist parade” and promoted a bail fund for the “counter-protesting” rioters:
One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade?

And during the destructive, violent and sometimes deadly Black Lives Matter riots that engulfed the nation last summer, the congresswoman published an Instagram video in which she equated giving up rioting to “asking for … the continuation of quiet oppression.”

Meanwhile, all throughout last year Democrats and their media allies ran defense for the rioters, with NPR running a piece titled “In Defense Of Looting,” and multiple high-profile left-wing figures and outlets claiming “rioting is the language of the unheard.”

But by that same logic, wouldn’t Greene gently berating Ocasio-Cortez for refusing to speak with her also count as her expressing “the language of the unheard,” albeit with far less vandalism, arson and murder than the left’s beloved BLM riots?
