The NY Post Employee Behind AOC’s Assassination Threat

An employee was behind the posting of articles calling for the assassination of a member of Congress and claiming that the governor of Texas wanted illegal immigrants slaughtered, the New York Post said on Oct. 27.

“The New York Post’s investigation indicates that the unauthorized conduct was committed by an employee, and we are taking appropriate action,” a spokesperson for the paper told media outlets in a statement. “This morning, we immediately removed the vile and reprehensible content from our website and social media accounts.”

The employee was fired, the spokesperson added.

The Post has not identified the worker.

The paper initially said it was hacked after a slew of articles were published, including an op-ed that called for the assassination of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) “for America,” according to images and archived versions of the articles reviewed by The Epoch Times.

Another story alleged that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he ordered U.S. Border Patrol agents to start slaughtering illegal aliens.

Articles about New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and New York City Mayor Eric Adams also appeared before being removed.

They were promoted on the Post’s official Twitter account.

After removing the articles and posts, the Post said on Twitter: “The New York Post has been hacked. We are currently investigating the cause.”

The Post has not published an article explaining what happened and has issued no further updates on its Twitter account.

Ocasio-Cortez did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Jen Goodman, a spokesperson for Hochul, called on the Post to “immediately explain how this reprehensible content was made public.”

    Here’s the issue and I believe it’s beginning to percolate in some minds, that the only way we’ll ever rid society of damaging influences is to remove them. Not saying that’s what should happen, but it is a consequence of Election meddling (even when it’s just the perception of meddling).
    People are beginning to have a belly full of influencers like AOC, who damage our country through their rhetoric and actions. I personally don’t believe assassination is ever the answer, but I’m not surprised to hear that it’s being voiced. It’s a real symptom of the societal unrest the Progressive Left has forced upon the country.

    • Truer words were never spoken! People are getting SICK and tired of the extreme left, their brainless and evil crap! Sooner or later, someone will snap and blow someone’s head off.

  2. So why is this any different than the people that threatened President Trump, i.e. Nancy Piggosiki, AOC herself, and many of the Dem’s, in office and the NO-BODY liberals and even some of the Republican RHINO’S. No matter what the issue is any more, if it;’s against a corrupt liberal all hell breaks loose and it’s an investigation and the person gets punishment but if it’s against a Republican, NOTHING HAPPENS.

  3. Paging mad Maxine for testimony on where and how to threaten political opponents. Input is also required from the Southern Poverty Law Center on shooting Republicans plus additional input is required from the ACLU on how to legally undermine US Law. Stacy ‘the tank’ Abrams can testify on how to employ dubious methods for voter registration which casts doubt on the legal vote process. And finally, close with Speaker ‘nasty Nan’ Pelosi testifying on how she, via Congress, administers her hate for the opposition party.

  4. Anyone who issues a threat to a sitting member of Congress or anyone in the Executive Branch or Judicial Branch should and MUST be arrested and tried for assault and sent to prison for no less than one year and NOT be eligible for a pardon from anyone including the President as a number of them could be pardon as some of them are actually members of the ruling party! Come and apply, you are NOT eligible!
