The arrest of 17 House Democrats who were protesting with pro-abortion activists outside the Supreme Court was a coordinated performative event linked to a dark money group funded by George Soros.
AOC admitted in an Instagram “story” shared with her followers that the Soros-funded Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund (CPD Action) encouraged her and fellow House Democrats to “submit themselves for arrest in front of the Supreme Court.”
The socialist congresswoman explained the arrest stunt, complete with pretend handcuffs for the cameras, was carried out “because media cycles go FAST and the attention and urgency on Roe can easily fade.”
AOC went on to advocate for civil disobedience, calling it “a highly effective way of accomplishing” media attention on the pro-choice movement.

However, AOC has pushed back against claims she “faked” being handcuffed during the performance at the abortion rights rally.
“No faking here,” Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter a few minutes later. “Putting your hands behind your back is a best practice while detained, handcuffed or not, to avoid escalating charges like resisting arrest.”
NationalFile report: Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was also involved in the publicity stunt. 30 minutes before her arrest, Jeremy Slevin, a spokesman for the Omar office, tweeted that the Soros group, CPD Action, would conveniently be live-streaming the congresswomen’s protest and hinted the protest will be “potentially including arrests.”
“Members of Congress, including [Rep. IlhanOmar] will be participating in a civil disobedience at the Supreme Court, potentially including arrests, shortly,” Slevin tweeted before the lawmakers began illegally obstructing the street outside the Supreme Court. “@CPDAction is live streaming it. Follow along!” Slevin added.
Slevin has worked as Omar’s Senior Communications Director/Strategist for nearly four years.
