AOC is now sending out mass emails and instructing her on how to “fight back” against anyone calling her out for “lying.”
OANN’s Jack Posobiec shared a copy of the message:

Dems never ever miss an opportunity to use a tragedy to their advantage…and that’s why everything they say and do must be looked at closely, and context needs to be applied to all of it…every last bit.
Right now this applies to the stuff AOC is saying about January 6th.
It’s gotten so goofy and gone so far off the rails, that AOC is now accusing Republican politicians of trying to get her killed on January 6th.
Here’s what she said to Ted Cruz: “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.”
Hard to take this woman seriously, with inflammatory statements like this.
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

Yes, that’s the dumbest thing most of us have ever heard, but even dumber than that is the fact that AOC was not even in the Capitol Building Rotunda (or directly near that area) when the melee broke out.
By her own admission, she was in her office, and that office is located in the nearby Cannon building which is still part of the “Capitol complex.”
AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down. If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building. But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.
According to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, two doors away, there were never any rioters in their hall so there was never any physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.
.@AOC made clear she didn’t know who was at her door. Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.

Look, I’m not trying to downplay her feelings – I get it, she’s a Millennial and was a bartender, and doesn’t have a lot of experience in DC and whatnot, and yes, I am sure that situation felt scary even in a nearby building, but I do think it’s important to understand the entire scope of the situation since the media and Dems are making the Capitol melee into the next great American “Civil War” or something.
Honestly, before I realized she was in the “Cannon Building” I thought she was literally right in the “thick” of things around the “rotunda” and that’s why she kept eluding to being “almost murdered” – although, that sounded like “dramatic fan-fiction” even back when I thought she was in the Capitol rotunda area.
The fact that she wasn’t, just makes this thing goofier and in truth, it sounds a bit over-hyped and maybe even self-serving, in my humble opinion.
Here’s a map of the buildings, just to keep all of this in perspective:

To be fair to her, and share her side, AOC claims that her building was “surrounded” by Trump supporters.
And here’s what she saying about “the right” trying to “manipulate” the narrative by saying she was not “inside” the actual Capitol building
“This is the latest manipulative take on the right. They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too.”
Again, it’s fair to note that a Rep who claims she was near AOC’s office says there were no “insurrectionists” around.
Once again, here’s what Rep. Nancy Mace said:
“My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize?”
JUST IN: AOC was not in the U.S. Capitol building during her "near death" experience. She claims to have been in her office, which is located in the Cannon Building.
Rioters did not breach the Cannon Building.

The exaggerated story spread by @AOC exemplifies the social media made politician for the left: the narcissistic drive of selfie culture merged with wokester politics feeds the ultimate social clout in metoo victim porn. The "hero" in the woke narrative is the ultimate victim.

Quick update: AOC was just “fact-checked” by Twitter. She claimed that “Trump supporters” stormed the Cannon building where she was located. According to NBC News, that’s not true.

Red State goes on to say that AOC’s building appears to have been briefly evacuated during the day as police checked on a nearby suspicious package that was later cleared.
So her “near-death experience” was an overreaction to a Capitol Police officer knocking on her door to direct her to another building, the Longworth Building, where she then stayed in the office of Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA). Instead of thanking the officer, she paints him as somehow a possible danger of which to be afraid. The Capitol Police were likely trying to evacuate the building quickly, it’s possible the officer was focused on getting people out quickly so likely didn’t have time for all the niceties.
This reminds me a lot of David Hogg — he became the “face” of the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, even though he was nowhere near the action.
But if you listen to Hogg talk about those tragic events you’d think he was stopping bullets with his teeth or something. It wasn’t like that, and sadly, his voice was so much louder than the people who really were in the midst of it all.
Nobody is saying AOC wasn’t “afraid,” I am sure she was…but a picture has been painted that made it seem as if she was literally at the main epicenter of it all – especially when she started using the word “murder” and whatnot – and that does not appear to be the case, and that’s perfectly okay to point out.
