Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday accused Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) of working with “his Ku Klux Klan caucus” and allowing “violent targeting of [women of color] members of congress.”
The Democrat further criticized the entirety of the GOP for allegedly inciting threats against Democrats, leading them to “pay for the security required” as Republicans profit.
“People truly don’t understand the scale, intensity, & volume of threats targeting [Rep. Ilhan Omar],” AOC posted to Twitter. “Kevin McCarthy is so desperate to be speaker that he is working with his Ku Klux Klan caucus to look aside & allow violent targeting of woc (women of color) members of Congress.”
“This cannot be ignored,” she added.
The post was published as a quote-tweet to Democratic Rep. Omar (D-MN) playing a threat she received via her phone. The implication is that Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is responsible for the threats made against the Democrat over comments she recently made about Omar, for which she has apologized.
