Next up in the ‘Squad’ playbook – linking any criticism of them to death threats.
New York’s own, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, linked criticism from President Trump to a recent threat from a police officer that suggested she should be shot.
A wild conspiracy theory at best.
Two police officers in Louisiana have been fired after one, Officer Charles Rispoli, posted on Facebook that the socialist is a “vile idiot” who “needs a round … and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve.”
The comment was a reference to Ocasio-Cortez’s former job as a bartender. The other disciplined officer liked the comment.
It’s Trump’s Fault
Naturally, the Democrat linked the actions of a rogue pair of officers to the President.
“This is Trump’s goal when he uses targeted language & threatens elected officials who don’t agree w/ his political agenda,” she said. “It’s authoritarian behavior.”
She is referring to President Trump’s comments that ‘progressive Democrats’ complaining about America should feel free to go back to their own districts and solve problems there first. Helpful advice, not a threat.
As for ‘targeted language,’ it’s important to note that the President isn’t criticizing the ‘Squad’ because of shared characteristics as women and minorities, he’s targeting them because they’re bats*** crazy America haters.
This is Trump’s goal when he uses targeted language & threatens elected officials who don’t agree w/ his political agenda. It’s authoritarian behavior.
The President is sowing violence. He’s creating an environment where people can get hurt & he claims plausible deniability. https://t.co/GuYKPGzSLm

Think about that for a minute – “this is Trump’s goal.”
She’s directly accusing the President of trying to get her assassinated.
Ocasio-Cortez is echoing the sentiments of Holly Figueroa O’Reilly, an unhinged opinion columnist for the Washington Post, who fretted on social media: “Trump is going to get one of these Congresswomen murdered. This is terrifying. I’m legit scared for them.”
She has to echo thoughts of others because the light bulb doesn’t turn on very often in her own head.
Can’t Criticize the Squad
Let’s review the ‘Squad’ playbook … If you criticize them in any way you are:
Last week, Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a leader in her own party, of trying to incite violence against her, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, because they are women of color.
In an interview with ‘CBS This Morning’s’ Gayle King, the ‘Squad’ made an implicit threat to Pelosi, with Tlaib interjecting that she needs to “acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats.”
Aside from the fact that Trump is, of course, not inciting violence by criticizing these unqualified individuals in Congress, there has been no greater gift to the President’s re-election bid than Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.
We’re quite sure he hopes she remains the face of the Democrat party for many years to come.
