A constituent tonight in AOC’s town hall literally told the congresswoman that we have too many people on the planet and the Green New Deal doesn’t go far enough, that “we have to get rid of the babies! … we need to eat the babies!”
One of Ocasio-Cortez's constituents loses her mind over climate change during AOC's townhall, claims we only have a few months left: "We got to start eating babies! We don't have enough time! … We have to get rid of the babies! … We need to eat the babies!" pic.twitter.com/uVmOnboluI

This is bizarre. So bizarre that some feel this is a saboteur or someone with a mental illness:
I can't believe she was being serious. Felt like a saboteur or certainly someone with an untreated illness? But, in fairness, AOC was not baited (if that was the intent), and kept it cool. She's right, "we are never beyond hope" but totally wrong on CO2.

I don’t know. But given that it could be someone in the latter category, I’m going to reserve judgement.
I know Democrats are radical, but I haven’t heard of anyone advocating this level of cannibalism. But who knows, it could be on the way soon.
UPDATE: AOC describe this as a “woman in crisis”:
We had a fabulous town hall tonight & I’ll be highlighting some moments from it.
At one point I was concerned there was a woman in crisis & want to ensure we treat the situation compassionately.
Let’s not mock or make a spectacle. &let’s work on Medicare for All!

Based on what I saw, I think she’s right in this case. Not about MFA, but about mocking her.
