Far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made the stunning claim on Twitter this week that Senator Ted Cruz tried to have her “murdered.”
It’s a total lie, yet she wrote it on Twitter and they allowed her tweet to stay up because there are different standards for Democrats.
What made it even more insulting was that Cruz was actually agreeing with her on something.
So much for unity.
The Daily Caller reports:
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez: Ted Cruz ‘Almost Had Me Murdered’
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday that Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz almost got her murdered during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Cruz sent a tweet to Ocasio-Cortez, saying he agrees with her that the popular investing app Robinhood needs to explain its decision to block retail investors from purchasing certain stock. The New York Democrat responded by telling Cruz if he wants to help he should resign from the Senate and that he almost had her “murdered.”
“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.”

“In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign,” she added.

She is referring to the incident at the Capitol, which Cruz had absolutely nothing to do with.
People are reporting her tweet for being disinformation, which it is.

Democrats have to be held to the standards they want for everyone else.
