Marjorie Taylor Greene 'aggressively' confronts AOC and accuses her of supporting 'terrorists'

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised security concerns after getting into a heated confrontation with controversial Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Ocasio-Cortez alleges that Greene, a pro-MAGA congresswoman, confronted her outside the House chamber on Wednesday and called out her name multiple times.

It prompted a complaint by Ocasio-Cortez's to authorities to ensure Congress remained 'a safe, civil place for all members and staff'.

"For me, this isn't even about how I feel", Ms Ocasio-Cortez later said.

Greene also said in the Facebook video that "the Squad" supported domestic terrorism in their support for Black Lives Matter and antifa.

She also reportedly asked Ocasio-Cortez why she would not defend her "radical socialist" beliefs by joining a debate. 'Why do you support terrorists and antifa?'

In a Facebook video posted Wednesday, the congresswoman made similar accusations, describing Ocasio-Cortez and her congressional allies as "The Jihad Squad" - a play on the group's "Squad" nickname.

"We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff - especially as many offices are discussing reopening", Lauren Hitt, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez's office, told the Post. A neighboring congresswoman, Marjorie Newman, put an LGBTQ flag on her office door, which led to MTG putting a sign up directly across the hallway: "There are TWO genders".

"It's so beyond the pale of anything that is in keeping with bringing honour to the House or not bringing dishonour to the House".

Ms Ocasio-Cortez did not engage with Ms Greene, and walked away.

"She's a chicken, she doesn't want to debate the Green New Deal", she said to a small group of reporters and onlookers near the entrance to the chamber.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) briefly commented on the reported matter during her Thursday news conference, referring to Greene's remarks as a "verbal assault" and "abuse".

She accused President Joe Biden of issuing a "blanket statement" that failed to acknowledge the root causes of the crisis which included the Israeli police raid of the Al-Aqsa mosque and the looming evictions of dozens of Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem. "AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite", she posted on Twitter. It takes a side - the side of occupation'.

Democratic Rep. Cori Bush moved at the end of January after being "berated", as she put it, by Greene.
