A woman who thanked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her work to battle “climate change” believes we need to take more drastic steps, including eating children.
The woman, with a foreign accent, interrupted the event to propose more radical solutions.
“We are going to be here for much longer because of the climate crisis,” she began as CSPAN stuck a microphone in her face.
“We only have a few months left!” she said as AOC nodded along. “I love that you support the Green (New) Deal, but it’s not getting rid of fossil fuel, it’s not going to solve the problem fast enough. A Swedish professor is saying that we can eat dead people but that’s not fast enough, she continued as she removed her jacket to reveal a protest statement on her t-shirt.
“So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: We’ve got to start eating babies,” she said, revealing the shirt that read, “Save The Planet, Eat The Children.”
“We don’t have enough time, there’s too much CO2! All of you,” she continued, turned to the crowd, “you’re a pollutant! Too much CO2! We have to start now!”
She added, “Please, you are so great, I’m so happy that you are really supporting Green (New) Deal, but it’s not enough.”
As the woman continued, organizers moved in to get her out of the room.
“So just stopping having babies is not enough, we need to eat the babies!” she said. “This is very serious. Please give a response!”
An alarmed-looking Ocasio-Cortez said, “We need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present.”
After the event, the Bronx congresswoman sought to downplay the woman’s bizarre proposal, and instead said her behavior was a reason to enact Medicare for All.
We had a fabulous town hall tonight & I’ll be highlighting some moments from it.
At one point I was concerned there was a woman in crisis & want to ensure we treat the situation compassionately.
Let’s not mock or make a spectacle. &let’s work on Medicare for All!

AOC later alleged that the woman is a Trump supporter:
