Unhinged AOC Pushes Conspiracy Theory, Claiming “Jan. 6 was a dry run’: ‘They will come back’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) claimed this week that the Jan. 6 riots in the US Capitol were just a “trial run” and that Republicans would overturn any future legitimate election.

What did AOC say?

Speaking to voters at a city hall on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez hysterically warned of the consequences she says would rock democracy if Democrats lose control of the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections.

“If we lose the house – it’s no joke. January 6th was a dry run and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

The New York Democrat then increased her partisan rhetoric to the level of conspiracy theory.

“It was a dry run, and they’re going to come back,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed, referring to the Jan. 6 protesters.

“Here’s the formality of what happened on Jan. 6: The only reason it wasn’t worse was because the Democrats had the House and they didn’t have the votes in the House,” she continued. “And if [Republicans] take the House and they have the votes not to authorize and legitimize the presidential election, whatever the results, and that is very serious.

However, Ocasio-Cortez provided no evidence that Jan. 6 was a “dry run” or evidence to back up their claim that “they will come back.”

Ocasio-Cortez shared the video of her remarks on Twitter but declined to comment further.

Anything else?

Ocasio-Cortez is wrong that Republicans would have sufficient authority to delegitimize rather than authorize a future presidential election if only they had control of the House of Representatives.

To block the Electoral College result, a majority is required in the House of Representatives and senate. The only case in which the House of Representatives alone determines the presidential election is when no candidate receives a majority of the votes. Then the House of Representatives votes on the three candidates with the most popular votes, with each state having a single vote.

In 2021, nearly 150 Republican lawmakers — 139 members of the House of Representatives and 8 senators — declined objections to confirming the results of the presidential election.
