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. We have, Ilhan Omar, Kamala Harris, sharing the Minnesota Freedom Fund bail bond link, getting people out of prison after they committed crimes during these riots.

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.
