Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was heckled by her own constituents during a town hall in New York City over her voting record in Congress.
Two different hecklers, who suggested that they voted for the congresswoman, yelled out their objections at AOC, with one declaring “I believed in you” but “you voted to start a nuclear war with Russia and China.”
Another heckler then stood up and started yelling “you are a coward!”
They blasted AOC for making promises to get their vote but following a different path in Washington D.C.
“You ran as an outsider but became Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s puppet,” one of them yelled.
“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” the protesters, who were in agreement with each other, said.
“You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine.
“You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China.
“Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?
“Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts where you’ve shown cowardice.
“I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against.
“That’s what you’ve become: You are the establishment.”
My friend @Noggatone and I confronted Congresswoman @AOC on her support for Nuclear War and Ukrainian Nazis. I call her out for being a coward in the face of the party that will push us all into Nuclear war right now. Will she stand up like @TulsiGabbard and fight for peace? pic.twitter.com/aQiQvQSWIN

Gabbard issued a scathing rebuke of the Democrats, going full scorched earth on the party as she left.
“The pro-war Democratic Party has led us to the brink of nuclear war,” for former Hawaii congresswoman warned.
“The party is led by warmongers who are firmly in the grips of the military-industrial complex and don’t know or care about the cost of war, or who pays the price.
“President Biden and the Democratic Party elite have pushed us to the precipice of nuclear war, risking starting WWIII and destroying the world as we know it.
“This is the most urgent existential threat we face.
“I ran for President in 2020 because I knew that this is where we were headed.
“All the signs were there.
“I raised this issue every day during the campaign, and on the national debate stage.
“But politicians and the media ignored it.
“They didn’t care then, and they don’t care now.
“Obviously I didn’t win that election and don’t have the power to do what is necessary to prevent it.
“President Biden and Congress do.
“But they irresponsibly refuse to use that power to protect the safety of our country, the American people, and the world from the devastation of a nuclear holocaust.
“To protect our loved ones, our children, our world, I’m calling upon the American people to join me in standing up to these cowardly politicians now.
“This may be our last chance to do so,” she wrote.
