Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has called a hero marine a murderer in a new low for the congresswoman and her party.
The comment even went too far for New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams, who issued her a stern rebuke.
A deranged man, Jordan Neely, 30, was riding one of the city’s F trains when he started ranting and raving at other passengers.
Neely was a homeless Michael Jackson impersonator with schizophrenia who had been arrested 42 times, including for punching a 67-year-old woman in the face.
He had also attempted to push a passenger onto the tracks just a few days earlier, according to reports.
A Marine stepped in and subdued the crazed man, protecting the rest of the passengers.
Two other men helped the Marine restrain Neely until police arrived.
But the man died and now AOC and other liberals are calling the hero a murderer.
“He started screaming in an aggressive manner,” journalist Juan Alberto Vazquez said about Neely.
“He said he had no food, he had no drink, that he was tired and doesn’t care if he goes to jail.
“He started screaming all these things, took off his jacket, a black jacket that he had, and threw it on the ground.
“None of us who were there thought he was in danger of dying.
“We thought he just passed out or ran out of air.”
So according to a Facebook page, THIS is the FULL video of the Hobo Floyd incident.
And would you look at that, it turns out there were MULTIPLE people restraining Jordan Neely down while waiting for police.

It appears that Jordan Neely had attempted to push someone onto the subway tracks a few days earlier. The Marine recognized this guy as a dangerous menace and took his violent threats seriously. pic.twitter.com/nvb1TbsWDb

But AOC, who wasn’t there, said: “Jordan Neely was murdered.
“But bc Jordan was houseless and crying for food in a time when the city is raising rents and stripping services to militarize itself while many in power demonize the poor, the murderer gets protected w/ passive headlines + no charges.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams fired back at AOC, saying:
“I don’t think that’s very responsible at a time when we’re still investigating the situation.
“Let’s let the DA conduct his investigation with the law enforcement officials, to really interfere with that is not the right thing to do.
“To interfere with that is not the right thing to do.
“I’m going be responsible and allow them to do their job to determine exactly what happened.”
