Hecklers Blast AOC During Town Hall

(WatchDogReport.org) – New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a group of hecklers who blasted at her during a recent town hall event at Queens while she was trying to tout her Green New Deal’s benefits for the country. The radical leftist, who was advocating climate change policies and environmental justice provisions, was suddenly interrupted by two protesters who accused her of ignoring her constituents and pandering to illegal immigrants.

One of the hecklers named Jonathan Rinaldo, claimed that he was running for Ocasio-Cortez’s seat in Washington, DC, and said that every American must be aware that her Green New Deal was a “scam.” He added that they were giving “NYCHA apartments away” and even claimed that they were giving illegal immigrants $10,000 every day.

He also challenged the radical leftist to have a debate with him. Rinaldi shouted that lawmakers were manipulating the state’s housing agency by using taxpayer money to move illegal aliens into those developments, while many poor New Yorkers were living in the street.

Another heckler was filmed while he was standing up and waving his finger at the New York Democratic representative. He shouted that she and the Biden administration must “Secure the border” as soon as possible, as the United States was experiencing a crisis because of the situation at the southern border. The heckler also accused Ocasio-Cortez of caring more about “illegal aliens and their vote” instead of her constituents, which made her “a disgrace.”

The man also accused her of refusing to comment on the violent attack that a New York Police officer suffered on January 27, when a group of illegal immigrants punched him and kicked him while he was on the ground.

Far from being the first time Ocasio-Cortez has been heckled during public speeches, the congresswoman has experienced similar incidents in the past, to which she said she’s being the victim of a well-planned campaign to demonize her.
