At the same time that The Squad wants to defund police and take away the guns of law-abiding citizens used for protection, they are spending money on armed guards to keep them safe. But not all socialists believe in two sets of rules for the elite and the great unwashed. It’s just in this case that they do. I guess guns are only required in the hands or under the control of the privileged class.
FEC reports show that New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Missouri Rep. Cori Bush spent thousands of dollars to hire people with guns to keep them safe, which is odd since liberals say that guns won’t keep you safe. Neither will police officers who are defunded. But none of the anti-gun legislation is aimed at armed felons but will affect law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves.
“Affluent white communities already live in a world where they choose to fund youth, health, housing etc more than they fund police,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
- In January, February, and March of 2021, Ocasio-Cortez spent $3,000 per month on a security consultant based out of Brooklyn, New York. Records show she spent a total of $9,000 for 3 months of security consulting from this one company.
- On Jan. 25, 2021, Ocasio-Cortez spent $24,279.13 on “security.”
- On Jan. 19, 2021, she spent $3,986.60 on “security services.”
- On Feb. 2., Ocasio-Cortez spent $849.22 on “security services.”
- On Feb. 25, Ocasio-Cortez spent $1552.50 at 24 & 7 Security & Investigation, Inc., which her office said was for a “security detail in Houston.”
That’s close to $40,000 for armed security for just one member of the squad. The cumulative total would be much higher. But aren’t they scared of being that close to guns?: Look how scared AOC claimed the Washington riot was to her and she wasn’t even in the same building although she initially claimed she was. She was calledm out onn that lie by my representative, Nancy Mace.

- On March 16, 2021, Ilhan Omar spent $66.97 on “Security Services.”
