New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the elected politicians cheerleading the “defund the police” movement, and as these defunded police departments continue to result in skyrocketing crime rates, AOC is doing what AOC does best, and that’s to concoct a world where reality is whatever she wants it to be.

Apparently, the fear that you could be assaulted, robbed, raped, or murdered is just a fair bit of “hysteria” from you, dear American.

“We are seeing these headlines about percentage increases,” Ocasio-Cortez said while talking with New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman. “Now, I want to say that any amount of harm is unacceptable and too much, but I also want to make sure that this hysteria, you know, that this doesn’t drive a hysteria and that we look at these numbers in context so that we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context.”

In AOC’s fantasy world, everything she ever backed was 100 percent effective and right. If you’re feeling unsafe and worried that crime waves will affect you, then you need to just calm down. More importantly, stop trying to spread the narrative that defunding the police was a bad idea. It was a great idea because fewer police make people safer.

And pay no attention to the fact that AOC made it possible to increase spending for her own police protection as journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out.

AOC is mocking ordinary people as “hysterical” who are afraid of violent crime in their neighborhood: people who, unlike her, don’t have reams of private security.

Yet she just acted to ensure $2 billion more in spending on the police that protects her: https://t.co/Kc1BDwd5O2

Protection for she, but not for thee.

In my honest opinion, in AOC’s heart of
