New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocked a group of her constituents who chanted “AOC has to go.”
AOC even danced to the chant in an apparent response to the jeers.

“The protest group was there to speak up against AOC and protest against crime rates going up in NYC, against the LGBTQ+ community housing and Mandates, among other topics,” Freedom News TV reported.
“At one point the lights shut off and AOC was escorted out of the room. She returned once the lights were back on and could be heard saying ‘I’m not allowed to be in a room with the lights turned off.’ Pro-AOC supporters then clapped and thanked her for being at the event,” it added.

“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” one protester said on Wednesday.
“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?” the protester added.

Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly voted with Democrats in favor of sending money to Ukraine despite her claims of being against war.
The issue is one of many concerns AOC faces as New Yorkers return to the ballot box next month to vote for the Congress member.
We’ll soon see if the protesters represent enough people in her district to change the leadership that has given her a political platform.
