(TheRedWire.com) – Crime is popping up across Liberal cities in America. Despite the crime waves taking over, one far-left Democratic Socialist is in complete denial. Based on her words and actions, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) believes it’s okay to fund her personal protection, but it’s not okay for citizens to be concerned about out-of-control crime in their communities. On Sunday, June 27, the New York Congresswoman (AOC) expressed concerns that out-of-control crime numbers were being used to promote “hysteria.”
The biggest spike in violent crime since the United States started keeping records is not "hysteria," it's real and so are its victims. This is shameful. https://t.co/zZIceS24tD

Over the last year, cities run by Democrats, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC, significantly defunded their police. Many subsequently experienced significant crime spikes.
As AOC grows more out of touch, criticism is ramping up. Journalist Glenn Greenwald slammed her for voting to increase Capitol police funding by $ 2 billion because she was afraid rioters might murder her on January 6. Yet, she believes people are “hysterical” over their reactions to rising crime rates around them even though they don’t get personal security protection as she does being a Congress member.
Across Twitter, it was much the same. Perhaps AOC needs to remove her partisan filter before making comments that embarrass her and hurt her party.
