AOC joined the chorus of liberals screaming at the sky over the New York Times’ decision to run an op-ed from Republican Senator Tom Cotton.
The interesting part is the freakout comes despite a majority of Americans agreeing with Senator Cotton.
According to The Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocaiso-Cortez (D-NY) lashed out at The New York Times for allowing Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) to publish an op-ed in the newspaper that features ideas that are supported by the majority of Americans.
Cotton’s op-ed accurately describes the violent riots that have rocked Democrat-controlled inner cities across the country over the last week in response to the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody last week.
Cotton then describes how the violent riots are harming the most vulnerable communities and suggests that the solution to fixing the problem would by to invoke the Insurrection Act and deploy the military to highly unstable areas that are not doing what it takes to fix the problem…
Ocasio-Cortez, along with leftist reporters at The New York Times, called James Bennet, Editorial Page Editor at The New York Times and brother to Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet (CO), for publishing the op-ed and made numerous false suggestions in doing so.
@JBennet Other Qs: Did you consider the author‘s explicit call for violence (“no quarter”) when you chose to run this piece?
Is it your belief that you are not responsible for the factual integrity of what you publish?
Do you believe calling for violence is an “opinion”?

Despite the backlash, Cotton is in the majority with even almost half of Democrats agreeing that the military should be deployed to stop the violence.
