“It’s funny because when people ask me, what does a world where we defund the police — where, you know, defunding police looks like? I tell them, it looks like a suburb.”
That’s what Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told Twitter last week in response to the rising violence in New York after Mayor De Blasio defunded the police.
On Monday, Tucker Carlson did not hold back in calling out AOC for her out of touch, “privileged” upbringing, and it’s safe to say he DESTROYED her.
Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the voice of the streets, actually grew up in an idyllic little town 45 miles north of New York City. It’s called Yorktown Heights.
You would never know it from listening to her recent race-baiting, but the population of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hometown is over 90 percent white. The median family income there is more than double the national average. Real estate listing show million dollar homes on big pieces of gated property.
It looks like a suburb.
Unfortunately, not everyone lives in a suburb as placid and protected as the one Sandy Cortez grew up in, with all the bake sales and pool parties.
Cities like St. Louis and Baltimore are more violent than El Salvador, and they’re getting more dangerous by the day. In Milwaukee, homicides have risen nearly 40 percent just this year.
Tucker continued his monologue saying that defunding the police “will not affect Bill de Blasio though. His family will remain protected by armed security paid for by taxpayers.
So, will Sandy Cortez, so will Barack Obama. So will the rest of the politicians calling for taking away your protection.”
He made clear the absolute hypocrisy of liberal politicians who live in big Democrat-run cities like New York and Chicago and Los Angeles. Sure, they’re all in favor of defunding the police, but they’re only comfortable with it because they know taxpayer dollars will continue to fund their private security rights and personal gun collections that are NOT at risk for confiscation.
Carlson even hinted at the miscarriage of justice surrounding a certain famed St. Louis couple… “Homeowners who try to protect themselves from violence are the real terrorists now and they must be punished. Increasingly, they are being punished.
There’s no doubt about it: he’s right.
