Dem Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to smear Republicans – ended up embarrassing herself.
She ran to CNN and claimed that some elected Republicans were involved in “stochastic terrorism.”
This happened after MP Ilhan Omar was removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives.
Fox 11 Online reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., criticized Republicans for engaging in “stochastic terrorism” after Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over what Republicans described as anti-Semitism and anti- American comments.
Ocasio-Cortez blamed the move on alleged racism and misogyny by Republicans, and went on CNN Thursday night to air all her grievances after the House of Representatives decided along party lines to expel Omar from the committee.
During the interview, Ocasio-Cortez said it was “uncomfortable” to work with Republicans who engage in “stochastic terrorism.”
Her definition of “stochastic terrorism” was “the incitement to violence using digital means and large platforms so that an individual cannot be the one wielding the weapon.”

“I think it’s uncomfortable to serve with people who are participating in what many experts consider stochastic terrorism. What is the incitement of violence in uh, what is the incitement of violence using digital means and large platforms so that an individual cannot be the one brandishing a weapon.”
This is not the definition of “stochastic terrorism”.
public demonization of a person or group that results in incitement to a violent act, which is statistically probable, but whose specifics cannot be predicted.
Stochastic terrorism is a specific type of extremist violence that occurs when the environment “others” a population or individual to a significant enough extent to result in subsequent violence against them, Eric K. Ward, senior adviser at the Western States Center, told Insider.
The AOC will say anything to smear the Republicans.
