Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says Bigotry is a “Virus” That YOU May Have

Did you know that you may be suffering from a racist virus, and that’s why you have political views that far-left progressives may disagree with?

This was the implication made by New York’s freshman U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the de facto leader of the so-called “Squad” of leftists that includes fellow Reps Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley.

Earlier this week, the leftist media darling went on a bizarre tirade on Twitter, where she suggested that Americans throughout the country may be white supremacists without even realizing it. That’s right — you, the reader, could be just a few bad days away from goose stepping around the block with a tiki torch. This, of course, is because that the United States of America is actually a very bad place, and filled with bad people. Correction: bad white people…

The rant began with the leftist lawmaker drawing a seemingly arbitrary distinction between “supremacists” and “supremacy.” Take a look:

There is a lot to dissect here, but the implication seems to be that individuals can “catch” the Nazi disease by standing too close to a skinhead on the subway — or something like that. If this happened to you, you may start saying the same things about Jews that AOC’s friend Ilhan Omar does on a seemingly weekly basis.

This isn’t a new development, either. AOC’s rant went further to claim that this disease was part of America’s very founding:

If AOC thinks 18th century slavery in British colonies was bad, she would be terrified to learn about the abhorrent conditions African slaves were forced to deal with when they were bought or captured by Islamic caliphates on the other side of the world. But, that’s a story for another day. Because, according to this woke bartender-turned-legislator, America is a uniquely racist country.

The Twitter rant continued along these lines, ending with a bit about how even ordinary people — that’s you, presumably — are just as capable of injecting racism into civil society. She closes with a statement that almost seems like she’s admitting to being racist herself:

“Healing ourselves of white supremacy will be hard. It will be hard because it requires us to confront ourselves,” she wrote.

Well, AOC can go ahead and speak for herself on that one. The overwhelming majority of Americans are not the closet Nazis the freshman lawmaker seems to want us to be.

We will say this: there is, in fact, a problem of racism in America today. Small pockets of white supremacists obviously do exist in the country. The same social media technology that has improved the rest of our lives is being used to make it appear as if these groups are larger than ever before, when the precise opposite is true.

The political left is a lot of things, but believe it or not, it isn’t always stupid. AOC herself may not be aware, but most Democrats understand that their Republican rivals aren’t dormant Klansmen. They are, however, more than happy to suggest as much if it means scoring points with the mainstream media and the people who are still influenced by it.

Condemning bigotry in all of its forms — including white supremacy — should have been a bipartisan ordeal. But people like AOC are making this impossible with divisive language like this.
