Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on a 54-minute tirade against men on Instagram on Wednesday, a day after an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at a Texas elementary school, slaughtering two teachers and 19 young children.
“It’s really important that we understand the roots of this,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, “The vast majority of mass shooters are young men that have a very troubling history with women almost every single time.”
“There’s a political issue here, but there’s also a very deep cultural issue that we have… we have the radicalization of young men… Young women are not doing this. Young nonbinary people are not doing this. Trans people are not doing this,” she declared, saying that men are being “radicalized.”
“Young women are not doing this. Young nonbinary people are not doing this. Trans people are not doing this.”

“Check on the men in your life,” she said. “Seriously… because there’s… it just feels like there’s very few role models and examples of people talking about this in healthy ways. And it’s a big problem because there are a lot of crises.”
“And especially as we try to evolve out of a world that is predatory on women, gay, non-binary and trans-people because traditional regressive, you know patriarchal values, really create men’s identities and uplift men’s identity in relation to other things, in relation to like, how women treat them, how much stuff they have, etc.”
“And for a long period of time, we’ve been taught that trans and non-binary and women are ‘less than,’ in oppressive societies of quality, feels like oppression, so there are a lot of structures that are having identity crisis right now,” she claimed.

Another added, “@AOC you are a contributor to why America is so divided and polarised – remember women and men are different and will never be the same genetically.”

Former Rochester, New York police chief La’ron Singletary responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s statement in a Fox News interview. He said:
I watched that video over and over again, and I don’t even think AOC knew what she was trying to say. I’ve worked 20 years in law enforcement and the investigation is not complete. And here she is making characterizations and accusations and tying them to a class in our society. It’s the rhetoric from politicians like AOC that continue to divide this country. In fact, what she’s saying is quite sexist and discriminatory. And politicians have a platform, and they have to use that platform, and they have to be careful how they use it. Last I checked, the motive of this shooting is still under investigation, meaning that we don’t know why this murderer decided to go into a school and wreak havoc and kill kids. Let’s call it what it is and deal with whatever it is when the investigation is complete. Instead of sitting down and having conversations to try to come up with viable solutions, what does she do? She takes to social media, improvises rhetoric that neither brings people together nor provides viable solutions.
