Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC) is an a zealous supporter of the “defund the police” movement. Like many radical Marxist Democrats she hates cops and blames them for everything including humidity.
However, the Brooklyn bartender is also a zealous supporter of funding her own personal security force, including a former Blackwater contractor.
AOC supposedly paid tens of thousands of dollars for her own personal security in the first six months of this year, according to Federal Election Commission records.
She allegedly spent over $34,000 in that time according to filings. Wow, that’s a lot of money she paid for protection and isn’t it strange that she doesn’t think her own constituents deserve to be protected by police?
The New York Post reported that “The lion’s share of the cash — $28,498 — was spent locally, at New York’s own Three Bridges, LLC, which bills itself as part of ‘a new generation of the private security industry.'”
The congresswoman’s campaign apparently spent over $4,600 for “security services” during the same timeframe from Tullis Worldwide Protection, which is owned by former Blackwater contractor Devin Tullis. Huh.
The Virginia company Tullis Worldwide Protection advertises that they have a “top tier client base to include royal family members from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and two major media organizations.”
Tullis has not provided the Post with any details on the types of protection his company has provided for the glass of water with a D on it from Brooklyn, but he did say that the job wasn’t for the faint of hear, whatever that means. He also said, “We’re not hiring social workers.” We believe he was talking about proposals by left-wing lunatics saying they want to replace police with social workers.
AOC has been a passionate, loudmouth supporter of the “defund the police” movement, which I think makes her dangerous.
She does have power to make that happen even though she is too stupid to know how dangerous defunding police really is. For example, she has more than 12 million followers on her Twitter account, many of which have seen her many tweets calling for defunding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and police.
And she cares more about her radical ideology than about the Democratic Party. During the summer of 2020, when most big cities, all run by Democrats, were being destroyed by rioters, looters, and thugs, AOC began barking at the Democrat mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio for defunding the NYPD budget by close to $1 billion. But she wasn’t complaining about the exorbitant amount of the cut from the police budget – nay nay – she complained that it wasn’t enough! Remember when she tweeted out to de Blasio, “Defunding police means defunding police.”
Even after former President Barack Obama publicly said that the “defund the police” movement was sending the wrong message to voters, the dopey AOC slammed her party’s leadership because they didn’t seem to be supporting the anti-police movement at all. Can you believe the depth of stupidity of this woman?
AOC once tried to be clever using camouflaging rhetoric to explain how radical leftists got tired of doing things to bring change the sane and rational way, the frustration of which made them turn ugly by using different tactics like forcefully silencing the opposition and brute force violence on the streets the way all Marxists behave when their horribly bad ideas are never embraced by the people.
“The thing that critics of activists don’t get is that they tried playing the “polite language” policy game and all it did was make them easier to ignore.
It wasn’t until they made folks uncomfortable that there was traction to do ANYTHING even if it wasn’t their full demands.”

The Republican Study Committee, which is the biggest conservative caucus in the House of Representatives, earlier this month put out a video of a number of Democrats calling to defund the police. It turns out they didn’t like it, because the Defund the Police movement was a real flop with their constituents who actually want cops in their neighborhoods protecting them from the 5% of their community who commit all the violent crimes.
The Democrats all shouted the defund the police because they were terrified that the rioters over the summer of 2020 would turn on them. After all, every city where police clash with the community is Democrat-run, and the party doesn’t want American voters to realize they they are the common denominator, so they threw the police under the bus.
