I hope Ocasio-Cortez has some serious around the clock protection.

An Ohio man on Friday was reportedly charged in federal court with threatening to shoot Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and illegally stockpiling ammunition in his home.
Timothy J. Ireland, 41, was charged in the U.S. District Court in Toldeo and faces a count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a fugitive in possession of a firearm and making interstate threats, according to the Toledo Blade.
The firearms charges come with a maximum 10-year prison sentence, while the threatening charge carries a maximum sentence of five years, the Blade reported.
The charges came after U.S. Capitol Police on July 23 received a tip about statements posted on Facebook that threatened the Democratic congresswoman, according to the Blade.
Police received a screenshot of news story related to Ocasio-Cortez with linked comments that said she “should be shot.”
“Can’t fire me, my employer would load the gun for me,” the comment read, according to the outlet.
When the police showed up to confront Ireland he was “very proud of that post he made.”
Of course he was proud, he got to play big man on the internet by threatening to hurt a non-white woman.
I’m sure his white supremacist pals wanted to throw him a fucking parade.
I swear if Trump does not shut the fuck up he is going to get one or more members of “The Squad” murdered.
Which I am sure will only make him even more popular among the slack jawed bottom feeders who still support him.
