Smash and grab crimes are a growing problem in cities around the country, but don’t tell that to far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
During a recent interview, she referred to the rash of crimes as a hoax, and now even some Democrats are calling her out.
It’s hard to believe that a rep. who spends so much time on social media hasn’t seen any of the viral videos of these crimes.

NY Democrat rips AOC’s denial of rise in smash-and-grab robberies: ‘She’s a danger’
A former Democrat state lawmaker slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., after she undermined the existence of smash-and-grab robberies across the country, calling her a “danger” as she advocates emptying prisons and defunding the police.
Former New York assemblyman Dov Hikind joined “Fox & Friends First” on Monday to discuss her remarks, as many critics argue the rhetoric is “tone-deaf” amid a rampant crime surge nationwide.
“These crimes that are being committed, there are real victims out there,” Hikind explained. “The bail reform that she supports, where criminals walk out before the police officer finishes the paperwork, it’s ridiculous, causing new victims out there. It is really out of control.”
Last week, Ocasio-Cortez cast doubt on the existence of mass smash-sand-grab robberies around the country.
“A lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Is she really this dense?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that the smash-and-grab crime wave is a hoax drew howls from fellow lawmakers on Capitol Hill, as retailers and police refuted the claim by detailing the huge impact of organized theft.https://t.co/iA6zdZfQsm

The same AOC that has her own private security and wants to defund your police is now telling you to not believe your eyes about the smash-and-grab robberies at retailers across the country. Makes sense. https://t.co/EZzNTp7n3y

You’d think even Democrats would want secure communities, but apparently not AOC.
She’s claiming the string of smash-and-grab robberies across the country don’t exist. Unreal.

Is it possible that AOC was really just trying to stick up for the looters?
Isn’t that worse?
