‘I will explain this to you slowly’: AOC gets testy when Taylor Greene accuses her of ‘insurrection’

A war of words that erupted between far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and firebrand conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday appeared to end with a resounding defeat for the leftist lawmaker.

The feud began with Greene posting a tweet at 12:44 pm EST accusing Ocasio-Cortez of launching “an insurrection.”

“AOC just launched an insurrection. Any violence and rioting is a direct result of Democrat marching orders,” the tweet read.

Attached to it was a video of of the grinning far-left congresswoman chanting “illegitimate” and “into the streets” as she protested alongside angry demonstrators outside the Supreme Court.


Greene’s tweet apparently struck a nerve, because Ocasio-Cortez responded four hours later with an attempted uppercut of a tweet.

“I will explain this to you slowly: exercising our right to protest is not obstruction of Congress nor an attempt to overturn democracy,” the tweet read.

“If one were a heinous enough person to do that, they’d likely seek a pardon for it too. But only one of us here has done that. And it ain’t me.”

The tweet referenced “gossip and lies,” as Greene has called it, from the Jan. 6th committee. Specifically, it referenced an unsubstantiated claim that Greene had asked then-President Donald Trump for a pardon following the Jan. 6th riot.

Greene responded less than an hour later.

“How about you explain slowly why you won’t support a pardon for Julian Assange and Edward Snowden,” she tweeted.

“And then continue to explain why you are a shill for the MIC funding war in Ukraine. Or are you too busy organizing baby killing riots?”


But she wasn’t done.

After video emerged later that evening of far-left extremists in Seattle tackling and pepper-spraying a pro-life protester, Greene accused Ocasio-Cortez of having provoked the altercation.

“AOC gave the order today in front of the Supreme Court. ‘TAKE TO THE STREETS!’ So did Maxine Waters,” she tweeted.

“And just like that Antifa came out of retirement attacking innocent women. Tell me about women’s rights again.”


The feud then pretty much ended, with Greene tweeting no more about Ocasio-Cortez, and the far-left lawmaker suddenly remaining quiet.

However, the “insurrection” allegedly spurred by the left-wing lawmaker’s chants seemingly continued throughout the country.

Over in Phoenix, local authorities were forced to deploy tear gas after pro-abortion “protesters” reportedly tried to break into the Arizona State Senate building as state lawmakers were busy trying to pass legislation.

“During this time, the Senate was still in session, voting on expanding school vouchers. After the vote, Karen Fann cleared the Senate floor, citing a ‘security situation,'” as reported by local station KTVK.

“We are incredibly thankful for our local law enforcement who quickly intervened during what could have been a destructive and dangerous situation for our members, staff and public inside the Senate,” Senate President Karen Fann said in a statement afterward.

Meanwhile, footage emerged from across the country of far-left “protesters” behaving in ways unbecoming for actual peaceful protesters.
