But soon after video of the incident began to go viral on Thursday night, a far-right fringe group called the LaRouche movement announced on Twitter that they were behind the protester.
"AOC doesn't rule out eating babies," the LaRouche PAC wrote.
The group, which promotes a host of conspiracy theories, also linked to a post on their website that called the reduction of carbon emissions a "mass-murder policy."
Matthew Sweet, a British journalist who wrote a book that investigated LaRouche, called the group a "bizarre political cult" and pointed out that it has staged several other demonstrations similar to the woman's Wednesday night interruption.
President Donald Trump slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday after a woman had a meltdown over climate change and suggested that people “start eating babies!”.
Trump responded to a tweet from his son, Donald Trump Jr., that showcased the video in which Trump Jr. wrote: “Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me.”

“We are not going to be here for much longer because of the climate crisis, We only have a few months left!” the woman told Ocasio-Cortez. “I love that you support the Green Deal, but it’s not getting rid of fossil fuel, it’s not going to solve the problem fast enough. A Swedish professor [said] we can eat dead people but that’s not fast enough. So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: ‘We got to start eating babies! We don’t have enough time! There is too much CO2.”
“All of you … you are a pollutant, too much CO2, we have to start now, please, you are so great, I’m so happy that you really are supporting New Green Deal, but it’s not enough, you know, even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people,” the woman continued. “Too much pollution, so we have to get rid of the babies! That’s a big problem. We need to eat the babies!”
The meltdown comes after climate alarmist teenager Greta Thunberg had a meltdown at the United Nations.
This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) October 4, 2019
