Troll From Pro-Trump Group Reportedly Screamed ‘Eat The Babies!’ At AOC Town Hall And It’s Caused Quite a Stir

On Thursday, Alexandrai Ocasio-Cortez held a town meeting in Corona, Queens, at a public library. That’s part of her job, but AOC has a very high profile online amongst both conservatives and liberals, and any public appearance attracts a lot of attention. In this case, it attracted a constituent who closed out the meeting by screaming, “Eat the babies!”

Hard message to follow.

Newsweek reports that the constituent was speaking to climate change, when she said, “We’re not going to be here for much longer because of the climate crisis! We only have a few months left! I love that you support the Green Deal but getting rid of fossil fuel is not going to solve the problem fast enough. I think your next campaign slogan has to be this, we got to start eating babies.”

She then revealed she was wearing a homemade t-shirt that read, “Save the Planet, Eat the Children.” How long do you think it will be before we see those on Etsy?

AOC, a generous queen, went on Twitter to say that the woman who suggested cannibalism as a solution to climate destruction should be left alone, as she could be struggling with mental health issues.

The Trumps are loving that a supposed supporter of a famous Democratic representative is acting wilder than a Trump supporter for once, and are circulating the clip for their own constituency to mock:

Yes, the president called a member of Congress a “wack job.”

The whole situation is pretty confusing, especially because the woman has been identified by some supporters as a member of the “LaRouchies,” a very peculiar political organization that has been all over the map—but they love pulling stunts. They are also Trump supporters at this point, according to this thread created by writer Matthew Sweet:

But even AOC supporters aren’t looking very deep into this woman’s history, assuming she pulled this stunt for personal attention rather than as part of a larger political movement. We have a tendency to look at politics as a binary, but some groups hold very weird opposing views. This woman is one of them.

Nuance doesn’t make for as many good “eat the babies” jokes on Twitter:

Whatever this lady’s true motivations are, I think we can all recognize a troll when we see one, whatever our political affiliation.
