The photographer who took the photos of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appearing to cry at a protest outside a “tent city” in Tornillo, Texas demanded the removal of the images after it was revealed that AOC was actually crying over little more than a few police officers and an empty parking lot as part of a stunt.

Earlier this week, we highlighted the fact that Ocasio-Cortez was clearly trying to mislead the public when she tweeted, “I saw with my own eyes” America was “becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them.”

I’ll never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents,& caged them.

More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable.

We need to save these kids. https://twitter.com/i_p_a_1/status/1143361683710193665

Numerous other photos taken at the scene show that there was no “tent city” or any detained children in AOC’s view. Her emotional reaction to precisely nothing illustrates how the entire stunt was part of a photo-op designed to emotionally manipulate the public.

So what is Sandy Cortez reacting and crying about? She says it’s in reaction to seeing the kids in cages. No, she’s looking at a fence, with a road, along with armed CBP agents guarding the building in the backround. This is the same location De Blasio was at.

So, it is purely staged. Notice all her photos are at an angle among the fence & not through the fence. How poignant would it have been to show migrant children trapped in the other side of the fence from Sandy Cortez? So why didn’t they? There was nothing but a building & road!

Two days after Infowars published the article, photographer Ivan Pierre Aguirre, who shot and tweeted four images from the event that AOC subsequently retweeted, demanded the images be removed.

“I did not give you or Info Wars or @PrisonPlanet permission to use the photos I have a copyright on for your stories,” tweeted Aguirre. “This is a take down notice. Thank you.”

Infowars removed the images as a result of the request and replaced them with similar photos taken by others who were at the protest.

However, Aguirre’s photos are clearly in the public interest given that they concern a sitting member of Congress and have been re-produced everywhere after he personally made them public via Twitter.

It seems very odd that Aguirre and Ocasio-Cortez would decide to publish the photos to garner attention, but then demand they be removed when the narrative behind them comes under scrutiny.

Snopes and others have since tried to assert that it’s erroneous to claim AOC was crying over an empty parking lot. In reality, once again it’s Snopes who are deliberately publishing fake news.

In her original tweet about the photos, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them.”

The clear implication was that she was looking at detained migrant children, when in reality the only thing immediately beyond the fence was a handful of bored police officers and their vehicles.

People who saw the images also presumed that AOC was crying over caged children, with one commenting, “I feel her emotions in every single picture. Especially that last one. It’s pure anger, and how can one not feel anger after seeing what she saw?”

What she “saw” was a vast empty space along with a smattering of other activists feigning emotion over nothing. The protest was attended by over a dozen celebrities as part of a photo-op.

If a Republican Congressman had posted photos of himself crying outside a Planned Parenthood facility, only for it to subsequently be revealed that there was no such facility within view, leftists would call that a stunt or a photo-op.

AOC clearly engaged in a carefully staged photo-op and no amount of feigned righteous indignation or threats to remove evidence will change that patent fact.

 

"Verbal Lynching is the political tool used today by dems to silence debate on critical issues."

CANDACE OWENS STAGES 'PHOTOSHOOT' MOCKING ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ CRYING AT BORDER

candace owens aoc crying photoshoot

Right-wing media personality Candace Owens mocked 2018 photographs showing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez crying outside a Tornillo, Texas migrant children detention center, staging her own "photoshoot" mimicking the recently unearthed pictures.

The Blexit activist joined injurious conservative critics of the New York congresswoman in ridiculing a series of pictures taken of Ocasio-Cortez last year as she broke down crying at a chain-link fence surrounding a migrant detention facility in Texas. On Monday, photographer Ivan Pierre Aguirre posted the previously unpublished pictures of Ocasio-Cortez, who at the time was a "fairly unknown House candidate" attending an immigration protest.

Owens took the opportunity Thursday to mock the emotional images and accused Ocasio-Cortez of staging a disingenuous "photo shoot" just days before she would upset 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley on June 26 of last year.

"I decided to stage a photoshoot just like @AOC! Except I'm outside of an inner-city school where the conditions are abhorrent and the majority of black AMERICAN boys can't pass a basic reading exam. Maybe the liberal media will give this epidemic some attention now? #BLEXIT," Owens tweeted Thursday.

Owens' pictures show her fake-crying and posing in a nearly identical all-white outfit worn by Ocasio-Cortez at the 2018 border protest.

"(Btw, I don't know about you guys but I always wear all-white and red lipstick plus thousands of dollars worth of jewelry when I go stage a *legitimate* protest)" Owens wrote on Instagram Thursday.

Legions of right-wing critics took to social media to edit the dramatic images of Ocasio-Cortez outside the Texas tent city after they were posted earlier this week. Scathing comments mocked Ocasio-Cortez's outfit, accused her of being too emotional and cynically said she took "acting lessons from Jussie Smollett."

Charlie Kirk, Owens' former coworker at Turning Point USA, commented on her Instagram picture, "You are actually upset over a real crisis. Unlike her."
