Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday launched yet another cruel diatribe about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), this time because she said she was afraid she might be sexually assaulted during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Ocasio-Cortez has spoken candidly about her experience several times since the swarm of Donald Trump supporters laid siege to the Capitol on Jan. 6. She said in a recent CNN interview that she thought she would be raped and killed if the mob hunted her down. “White supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways. There’s a lot of sexualizing of that violence,” she said.
In February, she revealed she is a survivor of sexual assault and described how that trauma compounded with what she lived through on Jan. 6.
That trend continued Thursday.
“Sexualizing? Get a therapist, honey. This is crazy,” Carlson said. “These people were mad because they thought the election wasn’t fair. Now, you may disagree with that, but it wasn’t about you, surprise, surprise! Sexualized the violence. I thought I was going to be raped by Ashli Babbitt!”
