Stockholm Syndrome?: Ocasio-Cortez Praises Pelosi While Protesting Pelosi



Soon-to-be the youngest member of Congress, New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already learning the art of the flip-flop, only a week after being elected.

Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez joined nearly 200 protestors outside of the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to pressure Pelosi to act on climate change.

“The activists called on Pelosi to lead Democrats in developing an ambitious, comprehensive plan to address climate change — a Green New Deal. Halfway through the protest, rising Democratic star and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited to show her support, which drew a torrent of media coverage,” according to Vox. 

But Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez changed her tune.

“One of the things that I admire so much about Leader Pelosi is that she comes from a space of activism and organizing and so I think she really appreciates civic engagement,” she said in an interview. “And really what I’m here to do is just to support the folks that are here.” 

It appears that the freshman congresswoman will have to fall in line and back the ranking Democrats after all, much to the chagrin of her supporters who actually believed her when she promised to bring change to Congress.

Here is Ocasio-Cortez protesting in the office of Nancy Pelosi.
