According to at least two eye witness accounts, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lost it “big time,” at the El Paso, Texas Dentition facility on Monday. The New York City legislator apparently went on a profanity-laced rant, screaming at federal law enforcement agents “in a threatening manner.”
AOC was with a group of 13 other House Democrats and their aids, visiting the El Paso Station on Hondo Pass Drive when she suddenly broke away from the tour and entered a nearby holding area to speak with a migrant family being processed.
Suddenly as reported by eyewitnesses, an emotionally unhinged AOC rushes out of the holding area yelling and screaming.
One eye witness account describes what ensued next, “She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning of the tour … Crying and screaming and yelling,” said one witness who said he was stunned by the outburst in front of approximately 40 people.
The eye witness continued, “The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … ” the same person said. “They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”
A second official recounted how AOC went in and out of holding areas virtually conducting her own tour away from the group being briefed by Border Agents, returning to share the information she claims she was told by detainees, including the one person claiming they drank from a toilet.
The frazzled congresswoman announced to her colleagues she would not go with them on the tour, but instead would continue speaking with the migrant family.
A second official said that while she was around agents, AOC began to comment about a personal Facebook page apparently belonging to an agent, which was uncovered before the tour referencing the 29-year old Socialist/Democrat in an offensive way, including other Democratic lawmakers and those in custody.
Another agent recalls AOC saying “Something under her breath, ‘Oh, all these guys in here are gonna f–k me.’ The agents are standing there behind the computers. One of the agents laughed at something he was saying to another agent, and she (AOC) got irate and flipped out,” the second Border Patrol official said. “Now they’re under investigation for it. She took it as they were laughing at her and screams at them and says, ‘What’s so funny?’”
What seems obvious is that the loony congresswoman from the Bronx has an agenda, to create as much drama as she possibly can; her disgusting concentration camp analogy backfired when holocaust survivors respond.
Sami Steigmann and David Tuck called out the upstart lawmaker, giving her a history lesson stating that her comments were ignorant.
“AOC — look at me. My name is Sami Steigmann. I am a Holocaust survivor. I went through it. How can you — looking at my face, telling me that the camps we have in the South are concentration camps? What you are doing is you are insulting every victim of the Holocaust, shame on you!” Steigmann said.
Adding, “I’m not only a Holocaust survivor, I was in a labor camp … I was subjected to medical experiments and, later on, a German woman saved my life, when I came to the stage of dying of starvation.”
As for AOC’s meltdown in El Paso, Texas concerning her public claim that a migrant woman was forced to drink from a toilet, here are the facts from an agent on the scene.
“So this is what happened with the migrant and drinking water from toilet: she wanted water, didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell, and drank from the toilet. She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it … This was when she the migrant was apprehended and brought into the facility,” according to the agent.
