Democratic New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez told pro-Trump teen pundit CJ Pearson that “you’re right to be afraid of us” Tuesday after he referred to her as “the woman next to” Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet about the State of the Union address.

“Hi CJ Pearson, I’m not ‘the woman sitting next to her,’” Velazquez wrote on Twitter Tuesday night. “(Ocasio-Cortez) and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”

Pearson, 16, had joked on Twitter that “(Ocasio-Cortez) has been talking this entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way” during the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Pearson responded to Velazquez’s remarks Wednesday.

“I’m sorry, Congresswoman, but as (President) Donald Trump said — socialism will NOT be the future of this country. And Nydia, nothing about you nor (Ocasio-Cortez) scares me. It’s your policies — that jeopardize the stability of our nation and the future of my generation — that scare me,” he wrote on Twitter.

Others weighed in on the interaction between the congresswoman and the high schooler.

“This is a sitting Democratic member of Congress, (Nydia Velazquez), threatening a kid, (CJ Pearson), and telling him that Americans should fear members of Congress. This after (Rep. Eric) Swalwell threatened to nuke gun owners, and other Dems threaten to jail for exercising freedom of speech,” Newsmax host John Cardillo wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

“Why is a congresswoman telling a high school student to be afraid? Are threats from politicians to minors cool, Twitter? Or just code related stuff is bad?” talk show host Dave Rubin wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Velazquez, 65, made news when she said “a room of men have no business undermining a woman’s unconditional right to choose” but added “that room of men is not referring to our governor” during a news conference with Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Velazquez’s office for comment but did not receive a response at the time of publication.

    Nicholas Sandmann brings me hope. This young man CJ Pearson brings me hope.

    This Dem congressperson contradicts herself by being insulted to be referred to as “the woman sitting next to her” (AOC), while going on to say there are “millions like us , , , you should learn my name.”

    Why should he learn HER name if there are millions more just like her? HE, on the other hand, has the makings of a rising star!

      Progressive Democrats are really Hitler Worshiping Nazi’s. We must use our voices to educate the Weak Minded & Gullible American People. Progressive Democrats want Authoritarian Rule & Control Over the American People, just like the Evil Madman Hitler in World WarII.
      America will Never be a Socialist Hitler Nazi Country.
      Start eliminating the Evil Disease before it spreads further.

    Honestly the State of New York should be barred from sending Representatives to Congress. Its like they find people who despise our Great Country and elect them on purpose. Like everything else in life the US will never be taken down from the outside it will be undone from the inside. I keep asking myself is this a bad dream I have never seen so many idiots in a position of power.

    Our Politicians at 1-time were the best and the brightest we had to offer but it is definitely no longer that way and its sad.

    Could you imagine any other situation were a 65yr old could threaten a HS Student and it not be national news

    The old pragmatic Democrats have been brushed aside by Communists. The choice is clear, hard line Communism vs our freedom. Get prepped to defend our precious republic.

    I also was taken by the sight of the two senoras in white. They reminded me of the insecure new girl and the ugly wingman hangin’ around with newbie in hopes she can score a senor’ that AOC blows off. There’s AOC yapping non-stop and the ugly senora looking like she’d rather be anywhere else.

    The high school conservative is right. But that old hag would scare only a blind date.
