A woman supporter of controversial US lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) suffered a break down at a town hall event on Thursday evening over climate change, declaring that there are only “a few months left” and that it is time to “start eating babies”.
Addressing the Bronx lawmaker Cortez, a lady supporter gets up from her seat to give suggestions to AOC to combat climate change.
One of Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents loses her mind over climate change during AOC’s townhall, claims we only have a few months left: “We got to start eating babies! We don’t have enough time! … We have to get rid of the babies! … We need to eat the babies!” pic.twitter.com/uVmOnboluI

“Because of the climate crisis, we only have a few months left. I love that you support the green deal but it is not going to get rid of fossil fuel, it is not going to solve the problem fast enough,” she said.
The lady then cites an unnamed Swedish professor who suggested humans could start eating dead people to contain the crisis. “A Swedish professor said we can eat dead people but that’s not fast enough,” she says while removing her jacket so the print on her t-shirt is visible. “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,” she said.
Addressing the crowd, she says, “All of you, you are a pollutant. Too much CO2. We have to start now, please.” She even has other ideas on arresting climate change, which involves bombing Russia, but it may still not be enough, as she says, because, “we still have too many people.”
“Too much pollution, so we have to get rid of the babies! That’s a big problem. We need to eat the babies!” the woman continued.
While Ocasio-Cortez tried to calm down the hysterical lady by telling her that luckily we have more than a few more months, she did not really ask the lady to not eat babies to combat climate change.
As social media users pointed out AOC’s supporter’s hysterics and alarmist behaviour, the US lawmaker blamed the right-wingers for allegedly mocking her supporter. She further stated that her supporter may have been suffering from a mental condition.
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.

AOC thinks the activist was mentally unstable, but relevant question is what pushed her to this condition? Aren’t climate change alarmist prophecies the reason? Finding fault with right-wing, when there could be a time to look inwards and introspect that maybe they need to give people hope and not fear.
Meanwhile, taking a dig at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Donald Trump Junior said the woman who asked people to eat babies seemed like a normal AOC supporter to him.

US President Donald Trump too did not miss out any opportunity to mock Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as he called her a “Wack Job”.
AOC is a Wack Job! https://t.co/LU3hIeek0c

Recently, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was slammed for her ignorance after she fell for Pakistan propaganda. She had resorted to false propaganda had made some controversial claims that there were reports of violence, torture and blockage of medical aid and communication in Jammu and Kashmir ever since the region was stripped of its special status by the Indian government in August.
