In a leaked CNN interview that was published by Project Veritas, this week Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says that she thought she was going to be raped by election integrity protesters at the Capitol on Jan. 6 — even though she was nowhere near the Capitol building — because “white supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways” and “There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence.” Ocasio-Cortez went to declare, “And I didn’t think that I was just going to be killed. I thought other things were going to happen to me as well,’ prompting Bash to interject, “It sounds like what you’re didn’t only think that you were going to die, you thought you were going to be raped.” “Yeah,” Ocasio-Cortez stated. The elected official went on to to state that the biggest misconception that people have about her is “Just — thinking that I’m rash, unintelligent, and that I intend to do harm. I think that particularly the misperception that I’m here to do harm to our country, it’s unfortunate.”
