AOC easily reelected hours after boldly claiming crime is down in NYC and ragging on cops

The idea that New Yorkers would vote in their own self-interests amid surging violent crime went by the wayside on Tuesday as voters chose lawlessness, socialism and squalor by staying loyal to the political party that has brought ruin to what was once the nation’s premier city by overwhelmingly reelecting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a third term.

In what may go down as one of the most successful efforts to gaslight voters in recent history, the socialist diva and her fellow Democrats with a big assist from the media were able to make the argument that crime was actually down, despite ample video evidence of vicious attacks on Big Apple residents who have been victimized by criminals emboldened by liberal soft-on-crime policies.

“Thank you to every member of our community and every grassroots supporter for entrusting me with the great responsibility of representing NY-14 in Congress,” tweeted AOC after the results were announced. “We do this with small dollars, every time. I remain grateful to all of you who make a new kind of governance possible.”

The progressive firebrand’s easy win came hours after the crime denier appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club” where she astonishingly accused the police of being responsible for the rampant criminality on the city’s subway system where commuters are regularly preyed upon by thugs.

“A lot of people think that crime is up, when we actually see that shootings are down, when we see that huge indicators on the most violent crime in New York City is down,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“Subway crime is up, but let’s also note that subway crime is up after they committed so many more officers to the subway system so that tells us from a policy perspective, adding more cops to the subway isn’t solving the problem,” the anti-police Democrat said hours before she was rewarded by her voters who seem to have less problem with the risk factors of daily life in the teeming metropolis than supporting change.

Despite the congresswoman’s version of reality, crime is up 31 percent in New York City according to NYPD statistics through mid-October with felony assaults, robbery, and rape all up by double digits although the body count has declined with murders down by nearly 15 percent.

Subway crime is also way up with even CNN reporting a rise of a stunning 40 percent over last year on the subterranean transit system that New Yorkers rely upon on a daily basis but, since the city has been transformed into a brutal dystopian hellscape under Democrat rule, they put their lives in peril every time that they go to work or the grocery store.

Governor Kathy Hochul was also reelected on Tuesday, defeating Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin who made crime a centerpiece of this case for new leadership, an argument that was rejected by the deep blue state’s electorate which stuck with the status quo of violence and pandemic-era restrictions on their civil liberties, both hallmarks of Democrat rule.
