Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York seemed to be caught quite flat-footed at a town-hall event where she doubtlessly expected a friendly audience.
Two of the attendees vocally confronted the radical-leftist Representative for her alleged support of U.S. funding of the Ukrainian military in their ongoing struggle against the invading Russian forces of Vladimir Putin.
The confrontation went viral on multiple platforms Thursday.
“My friend @Noggatone and I confronted Congresswoman [AOC] on her support for Nuclear War and Ukrainian Nazis,” activist Jose Vega wrote regarding his exchange with the thirty-three-year-old Democrat.
My friend @Noggatone and I confronted Congresswoman @AOC on her support for Nuclear War and Ukrainian Nazis. I call her out for being a coward in the face of the party that will push us all into Nuclear war right now. Will she stand up like @TulsiGabbard and fight for peace? pic.twitter.com/aQiQvQSWIN

“I call her out for being a coward in the face of the party that will push us all into Nuclear war right now,” he added. “Will she stand up like [Tulsi Gabbard] and fight for peace?”
AOC took issue with the activists cutting ahead in the line to speak and told the two men who confronted her that she would address their questions “last”. However, video footage of the event doesn’t show her ever ‘circling back’ so to speak to revisit their questions.
Timcast News broke the story that one of the protestors told the Congresswoman, “Tulsi Gabbard, she’s left the Democratic Party because they are war hawks. You ran as an outsider! Yet, you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine.”
The Daily Caller identified this person as “Kynan.”
“Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?” he continued.
“You’re playing with our lives!”
“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” he shouted.
“You voted to mobilize and send money to Ukrainian Nazis,” Vega added. “You’re a coward!”
The congresswoman called the men “rude” for interrupting her event and told them “I’m not asking you to respect me,” adding that she wanted them to “respect” their neighbors, according to The Daily Wire.
