AOC Says She Woke Up to Stacks of Photos From FBI Showing 'People Who Want to Kill' Her

"I used to wake up in the morning and literally get a stack of pictures that were forwarded by Capitol police or FBI. Like, 'These are the people who want to kill you today,' " AOC told Vanity Fair this week.

The hate extended to her family, including her brother, Gabriel, who would receive calls from the FBI warning him not to open his mail due to bomb threats, according to the publication. Other targets of abuse include the designer of her Cesar Chavez–inspired campaign posters, who would receive death threats, and her former dean at Boston University, who would regularly receive emails calling him the n-word.

Ugh, how awful. What the fuck is WRONG with these right-wing assholes?

I suppose a bold young woman of color who speaks out forcefully and doesn’t accept their shit really “triggers” them.

1. Deplorables was the correct term ...

Also, why the 'past tense'?

2. Not sure why the past tense. I somehow doubt that AOC no longer receives tons of threats.
