On Saturday, leftist Democrat state Sen. Jessica Ramos of New York City ripped U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after her “performative” fake handcuffing before her arrest outside the U.S Supreme Court. AOC was protesting the Court’s decision to send the abortion decision back to the states, thereby overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

Fox News reports:

A liberal New York state lawmaker ripped fellow progressive U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Twitter Sunday for being “absent” in her home district, while a medical student also lambasted the congresswoman “squad” member for her “performative” display at a recent Supreme Court protest.

The public online spat started last week when a Twitter user named Daniel, who identifies as a medical student and a health activist under the handle @jai_lies, called out Ocasio-Cortez’s office for purportedly canceling a meeting with health policy activists wanting to discuss a British-style socialized medical plan.

The medical student wrote in a July 21 tweet that “a couple of the most highly respected health policy academics recenly [sic] set up a meeting with AOC’s office to discuss NHS style healthcare reform. They were told bluntly by AOC’s staff, ‘we’re not doing healthcare right now.’”

“So, while she’s doing performative resistance art for the camera’s [sic] she’s ‘not doing healthcare right now,” he added, referring to Ocasio-Cortez recently being accused of pretending to be handcuffed while police escorted her away from a pro-abortion protest at the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. “We are in the middle of two pandemics & people are still dying because they lack healthcare. this is not fighting.”

After AOC responded, Ramos chimed in:

The conversation continued, with Ramos responding to the Twitter account which was criticizing AOC:

“A tempest in a teapot” This entire incident is meaningless and typical Democrap stupidity. BTW, Why would Americans want a British “socialized medical system”?

Americans with good sense, especially those who have lived in Europe and witnessed or experienced the benign neglect and the lowest common denominator of socialized medicine do NOT want socialized medicine.
