‘What a False Narrative’: Internet Unconvinced by AOC Claims She Feared Being Raped in Capitol Riot
"I didn't think that I was just going to be killed… I thought other things were going to happen to me as well," said Ocasio-Cortez.
"White supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways… There's a lot of sexualising of that violence."
“I'm a survivor of sexual assault, I haven't told many people that in my life. As a survivor, I struggle with the idea of being believed. I haven’t told many people that in my life. When we go through trauma, trauma compounds on each other."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) opened up about personal trauma while recounting her experience during the Capitol insurrection.

There's no doubt AOC would have been violated in the most vicious and vile ways if she had fallen into the insurrectionists hands.— Thanis Grant 🕯📰 🗣 (@Thanis_Grant) August 9, 2021
Thankfully, she didn't, but it's damaging to the psyche to have felt the breath of the threat so near.
She wasn’t even there! She’s a grifter. She did not fear for her life, she did not fear being raped. That day was nothing more than a setup.— Truth Over Facts (@TruthOverFacts_) August 9, 2021

Please stop with your “rape fantasy” it is deplorable and miss the point of what it was all about! Overthrowing the election/government!— Church Lady (@SoulWomen) August 10, 2021
I suppose this big interview with Dana Bash is to help her political clout. So she can get Schumers spot in the Senate.— common cents (@calhaskett) August 9, 2021
She is such a liar. Even NYT called her out. Her timeline didn’t match up at all. Why are you publishing lies and not calling her out? Oh, you just want the clicks— dontbelievetheirlies (@shadowreporting) August 9, 2021
