Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went off the deep end again this week making outrageous claims that simply are not true. She accused U.S. officials of “deliberately” trying to “cage children and inject them with drugs” because “of their national origin.” She has no evidence to prove that… she’s just throwing it out there to see if it sticks politically.
I’m really beginning to dislike Instagram these days. This drama-queen made her remarks while streaming an Instagram live video of herself drinking (she drinks a lot) and assembling furniture in her apartment. Like anyone wants to watch that crap. Or listen to a nutty Marxist either. Why do these Democrats think we want to watch them put furniture together, cook, or get their teeth cleaned? It’s insulting.
This was a kneejerk reaction to being called on the carpet by Republicans for her mountain of gaffes and mistakes. Ocasio-Cortez said: “At least I’m not trying to cage children at the border and inject them with drugs. That’s not a mistake. That is a deliberate policy to attack people based on their national origin. That’s not a mistake, that’s just hatred. That’s just cruelty. That’s just wrong!” That is a despicable form of deflection and slander to boot. She sounds like a four-year-old child placing blame on another kid for something she’s done.
Last month, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Democrat-controlled House Homeland Security Committee that DHS does not “use cages for children.”
“To my knowledge, [Customs and Border Protection] never purposefully put a child in a cage if you mean a cage like this,” Nielsen said, noting that are kept in “areas of the border facility that are carved out for the safety and protection of those that remain there while they’re being processed.”
Sorry to tell Ocasio-Cortez that was Obama who caged children. Notice how she doesn’t throw any shade on Obama for that.

Nielsen said children are sometimes detained in “areas of the border facility that are carved out for the safety and protection of those that remain there while they’re being processed.” They are housed and cared for… not locked in cages like dogs. The claim that children are abused because of “their national origin” has no basis whatsoever either.
Ocasio-Cortez’s comment about children being drugged was possibly referencing a lawsuit last year which claimed that immigrant children were given psychotropic drugs at U.S. government-funded youth shelters to manage trauma. I’d really like to see proof of that because I don’t believe it. I’m sure they were inoculated for various diseases and then leftists claimed it was that. Sounds like a propagandic hoax to me.
Ocasio-Cortez’s rants are just getting more and more bizarre and twisted. She has accused the right of wild conspiracies before and none of them were legitimate. The Democrats idolize this nutbar woman and she does nothing but tell lies, spread false news, and try to destroy this country. Someone should hold her accountable legally for her behavior. If this is what the Democrats aspire to be they are utterly detestable.
