As Twitchy reported, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t have much sympathy for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh having to be sneaked out the back of a restaurant because of protesters; after all, he had just decided that “half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy,” the treatment of which not even Planned Parenthood considers an abortion. She tweeted on Friday that Republicans send people to protest her all the time:
I will never understand the pearl clutching over these protests. Republicans send people to protest me all the time, sometimes drunk and belligerent.
Nobody cares about it unless it’s a Republican in a restaurant. Can someone please explain the obsession because I don’t get it

A day later, she was still going on about the “feigned horror at protest.” You might not have heard about it, but she spent weeks in armored vehicles because of right-wing threats.
Many of us have spent weeks in armored vehicles & traveling through backs of buildings bc of right-wing threats. You don’t hear much about it.@GOPLeader McCarthy said he wants to promote House members who incited violence.
Their feigned horror at protest is a silencing tactic.

If this were happening, it would be on CNN and MSNBC all day every day, and you’d be front and center caterwauling about it to drum up sympathy. https://t.co/SmiZ58pZrY

After J6, the Democrats created a militarized theater that they all now use to pretend that they were really under attack “for weeks” https://t.co/gwXiEjvITP

We heard about it … Newsweek reported that “members of the mob” on January 6 banged against the door of Ocasio-Cortez’s office, and she believed “this was the moment where I thought everything was over.” (Actually, none of the Capitol rioters went anywhere near her office.)

Remember the time the masked help had to sneak her out of the Met Gala?
No one needs an armored vehicle https://t.co/kyzF6aRXYC

I don’t believe for a minute that you’ve had to ride in armor fortified vehicles to get from point A to point B. You need psychological help. https://t.co/X90P6NSGSY

Is that anything like not being at the Capitol on January 6th but acting like you were? https://t.co/S8VDQqpzBj

So is her feigned horror about armored vehicles a silencing tactic against conservatives? No one can protest her because it puts her life in danger?
AOC doesn’t understand the pearl-clutching over Kavanaugh protesters (her tweet also got flagged for misinformation) https://t.co/c7LCWDe0Fy
