(PatriotWise.com)- Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her attack against Texas Senator Ted Cruz on Monday, saying during a rally in Queens that she won’t apologize and even denying that she claimed that Cruz tried to get her killed in the first place.
But Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did wrongly claim that Senator Cruz almost had her killed, and the tweet in which she said it is still live.
“That’s not the quote and I will not apologize for what I said,” she told a journalist during a Queens event.
But on January 28, Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at Senator Cruz after the prominent Republican Senator, in a moment of bipartisanship, said that he agreed with the far-left New York legislator on the issue of the RobinHood stocks trading app blocking retail traders from purchasing certain stocks.
“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” Ocasio-Cortez wrongly claimed.
I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.
Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.
In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign. https://t.co/4mVREbaqqm

“Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed,” she added. “In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”
While the tweet gained a lot of support from Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left supporters, it represented just how far to the left the Democratic Party has moved in recent years. Ocasio-Cortez was one of a number of Democratic legislators who called on Senator Cruz to resign for announcing his plans to object to the certification of some Electoral College votes on January 6.
Cruz wasn’t the only politician attacked by Ocasio-Cortez, either. Senator Josh Hawley, who also expressed concern about evidence of misconduct in the 2020 presidential election, was falsely accused of inciting a riot on January 6.
In an Instagram video, AOC claimed that Hawley is a “present danger” because he didn’t accept that he incited a riot. She did not, however, provide any evidence of Senator Hawley inciting the riot.
“What that tells me is that when given another window of political opportunity for themselves, even if they know that it means that it will endanger their colleagues, they will do it again,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
The far-left New York congresswoman has yet to apologize for inspiring Black Lives Matter and Antifa groups who burned down American cities during 2020 in the name of “racial justice.”
