VETERANS STORM OUT during AOC’s Anti-AMERICAN Remarks; Office DENIES Walkout!

VETERANS STORM OUTduring AOC’s Anti-AMERICAN Remarks; Office DENIES Walkout!

In a private meeting in the Bronx with community leaders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not make friends amongst the veteran community. Two military veterans reportedly were so upset and insulted by AOC’s remarks that they stormed out, according to the New York Post.
Silvio Mazzella, a Vietnam War vet who served in the war from 1966-1968, and treasurer of Community Board 11 said “she knocks the country, she knocks the president. And that’s not what America is about.” Another vet, Anthony Vitaliano, who worked in the NYPD for 38 years and commanded the Bronx’s homicide detectives was sitting between AOC and one of her staffers. “I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore,” said Vitaliano. “I just got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out.
The closed-door meeting was a rare visit to the Bronx part of her district and there were about a dozen attendants made up of board members.  Tensions rose when a Middle Eastern board member brought up the conflict in Yemen. The Post reported “The progressive firebrand slammed the US policy of providing bombs to Saudi Arabia, which has supported Yemen’s government in a brutal civil war, according to attendees. Some blamed her for not including the roles of other nations in explaining the volatile region’s violence.”
One attendee who did not want their name published said they were “revolted” When Israel came up later in the meeting, and OAC suggested President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are autocrats. Although one member said it was not all hostile, that “there were a lot of people that really adored what she was saying,” the three members quoted above walked out of the room in disgust.
The kicker? According to AOC’s office, NO ONE stormed out of the meeting. “The only person that left the meeting while it was underway was someone who had to go pick up their children,” said AOC spokesman Corbin Trent. Veteran Anthony Vitaliano’s response? “That’s bulls**t.”
