(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – While attempting to make a point about transgender rights, United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat commonly referred to as AOC, made what many are calling one of the more bizarre comparisons about those who challenge transgenderism.
You can watch the video clip of the congresswoman’s statement a bit further down this post.
According to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
“The same folks who tell us and told us that COVID is just a flu, that climate change isn’t real, that January 6th was nothing but a tourist visit, are now trying to tell us that transgender people are not real. And I would say that their claim is probably just as legitimate as all their others which is to say, not very much at all.”
One commentator called the congresswoman’s statement the most bizarre straw man argument he had ever encountered.
As most know, a straw man argument is when someone takes another person’s argument, exaggerates it, and then attacks the exaggeration as if that is really the first person’s claim.
Here is the video clip:
