Patriotic Marine vet vows to fight socialism in Congress, gets accused of threatening AOC with firepower

Harrison Floyd, a patriotic Marine veteran running as a Republican for Congress from Georgia, has said he intends to fight socialism, and is now being attacked by leftists who falsely claimed he threatened Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with actual gunfire.

“I’m a fourth-generation military veteran, and a former United States Marine,” he said in a video announcing his candidacy. “I’m running for Congress because my family and I didn’t fight for our freedoms to allow our country to fall to socialism.”

“I’ll fight socialists in Congress the same way I fought terrorists in the desert. So help me God,” he added.

Floyd’s video highlighted his three tours as a machine gunner and his family, which has served in the U.S. military for four generations.

But Democrat opponent Carolyn Bourdeaux, naturally, thinks this man’s service is a bad thing and accused him of being aggressive and violent.

“Violence has absolutely no place in our public discourse and I denounce this abhorrent video in the strongest possible terms,” she said on Twitter. “This message doesn’t represent GA values and for Harrison Floyd to enter this race by inciting violence is wrong.”

Floyd, however, said he’s not going to shut up because Bourdeaux and her ilk are triggered:

One person even accused Floyd of threatening recently-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with gun violence.

One person set him straight:

Then there was this bit of racist trash hurled against Floyd, who happens to be black:

Even fake black man Shaun King weighed in:

Floyd, one of three Republicans running in the district, has clearly stated that his weapons of choice for fighting the scourge of socialism remain sound policy, convictions and words.
