Last week on a Zoom call with New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dismissed soaring crime rates in big cities all over the US saying “We are seeing these headlines about percentage increases. Now, I want to say that any amount of harm is unacceptable and too much. But I also want to make sure that this hysteria, you know, that doesn’t drive a hysteria and that we look at these numbers in context so that we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context.”
According to the NYPD, shootings in New York City have increased 53.2% yearly, and murders have risen 13.3% in 2021.

On the Buck Sexton Show Podcast, Buck was flabbergasted that people actually listen to AOC saying “People actually believe this, they watch this and unfortunately, they don’t realize that she’s a reckless little idiotEven other Democrats know it, by the way. But she is in the left-wing Zeitgeist right now. She’s really a cultural icon on the left.”
