AOC Finally Asks A Worthy Question

It has been quite curious over the years that feminists have a lot to say about the workplace, but very little to say about the epidemic of human trafficking of women and children.

For some reason, that changed this week when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) brought up the matter of women disappearing in areas where oil and gas exploration and extraction takes place.

“Today, I want to discuss part of this crisis that is all too often overlooked, but whose evidence shows that there’s a very meaningful connection here: The correlation between fossil fuel extraction sites and abductions and murders of indigenous women across the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a recently uncovered hearing on March 3 about “The Neglected Epidemic of Missing BIPOC Women and Girls.”

“Why is it that oil, gas, and fossil fuel extraction sites have such a high correlation of violence and abduction against Native women?” she asked the witnesses.

Angel Charley, the executive director of the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, did not answer the question with data but with a theory that fossil fuel industry “man camps” cause harm to nearby “native women.”

“We know that when these man camps or temporary establishments are created, that there is an increase in violence and particularly sexual violence against our Native women,” Charley claimed.

“Wow,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“Am I right to understand that companies building these oil pipelines are often ruthless in their resistance against protesters and sometimes even encouraging violence against them?” Ocasio-Cortez asked a follow-up question.

“That is correct,” Charley responded…

“The ACLU of North Dakota also reported that 411 missing murdered, and indigenous people were kidnaped or murdered in states affiliated with pipeline projects and that 10% of these cases occurred in counties where the Keystone Pipeline alone is proposed to be built,” she said.

Whether or not this connection actually exists is one to be explored, and the subject is now open. The question is will something be done about it.

Wrong question! The first question that should be asked is NOT :”will something be done about it?” The first question should be”What evidence do you have to support this claim?” AOC is famous for blurting out all sorts of , shall we say, unsupportable statements. As a known opponent to our energy sector, any inflammatory allegations such as this one should be carefully documented BEFORE any action is undertaken to remedy it. Once properly investigated and documented, the appropriate course of action (if any is warranted) will be self-evident.
