The fact that Democrats are held to a different standard than Republicans isn’t a new concept for anyone that’s been paying attention.
Democrats seemingly have a free pass from the media and other politicians, to say and do whatever they want without consequences.
As is the case with far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is now refusing to apologize for smearing Ted Cruz with this disturbing accusation.
As everyone knows by now, on January 6, protestors stormed into the U.S. Capitol to show their displeasure with how potential election fraud in the Presidential election was being handled.
Ocasio-Cortez, like most politicians involved, immediately began telling their story of where they were, and what they experienced, during the protests.
The Congresswoman vividly described how fearful she was during that time, and talked at length about having cops storm into her office, and all the terrible things she experienced that day.
A few weeks later, one of the biggest Wall Street scandals of all-time broke out, as trading app Robinhood stopped allowing it’s customers to trade specific stocks in order to allow their hedge fund friends to avoid losing money.
It was a situation that briefly brought the Left and Right together for the first time in years.
Senator Ted Cruz even responded to a Tweet from Ocasio-Cortez in which he said he fully agreed with her take on the matter, and agreed it was a situation that needed to be investigated.
Fully agree. 👇 https://t.co/rW38zfLYGh

AOC was not about to let Cruz work with her on solving an issue they both agreed on, though, as that would help the American people and not further her own career.
She shot back at the Texas Senator, saying she would never work with anyone who tried to have her killed, insinuating that Cruz was part of the cause of the protest and was somehow targeting her specifically for murder.
I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.
Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.
In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign. https://t.co/4mVREbaqqm

The only problem with AOC’s story and accusation is that she was never in the Capitol, but rather, in her office down the street completely away from all of the actual action.
Like many other far-left hucksters, AOC simply wanted the attention and leverage such a story would give her.
And accusing Ted Cruz of wanting to have you murdered is certainly one way to get attention and leverage.
Regardless of the fact that AOC has been proven to be a liar, though, she is now outright refusing to apologize to Cruz, even though the world knows her story is made up.
“That’s not the quote and I will not apologize for what I said,” Ocasio-Cortez recently told the New York Post.
Clearly, AOC is determined to take this story to her grave, much like Senator Elizabeth Warren attempted to do when it was revealed that she had spent years lying about her ethnicity for special treatment.
You really can’t expect any other type of reaction from a liberal like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Of course, she’s going to refuse to apologize and hope this story just goes away.
The liberal media and her supporters will provide her with all the cover she needs to never have to answer for such heinous lies at what is possibly one of the more tense political situations this country has ever faced.
There’s no incentive for politicians like AOC, from either party, to come clean and be honest when the entire system they’re a part of rewards the exact opposite.
The only incentives lie in getting re-elected, and that only happens if AOC continues to feed the socialist machine that brought her to prominence.
Sadly, this is yet another story of Democrats being able to play by a completely different set of rules than Republicans.
And, unfortunately, it’s only going to get worse.
