Someone in the crowd of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez yesterday got the mic and begged the candidate to start warning people to “eat the babies” in order to save the planet.
She then took off her jacket and displayed a t-shirt reading, “Eat the children.” She might have been trolling (it was convincing), and a group called Lyndon LaRouche PAC took credit for the possible stunt on Twitter.
The woman referred to a widely-circulated Swedish academic journal last month that claimed cannibalism would help climate change. The woman was concerned the “over-population” would destroy the planet “in only a few short years” and was deadly sincere that we should start eating babies.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not correct the woman, or discount the idea of eating babies.
