Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a few sandwiches shy of a picnic, yet she has the audacity to call Trump too uneducated to know what racism is. It doesn’t take rocket science to know when you are treating someone differently because of the color of their skin.
While appearing on Crooked Media’s “Pod Save America,” Ocasio-Cortez ignorantly said, “It’s not about asking are Trump voters racist. We need to talk about racism, not racists. Racist — it’s a very two-dimensional, boring conversation. Is something racist, yes or no.”
“We need to talk about racism, its contours, its histories, where it manifests, how it’s used, because like all winning political phenomena, whether good or bad in your opinion, they rely on collation building.” She continued, “So Trump relied on a coalition, and a core part of that coalition were racists building a collation with all sorts of other people that could be susceptible to racist views—if they were blankets and layered and made people feel good about it not being a racist thing.”
“So there are a lot of people that support Trump that genuinely don’t believe that they are racist because we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism.” The bartender turned politician added, “And because we do not do that we get caught in this debate of is something racist. Then people use their defensiveness, and they say, ‘Well, it’s not racist because I’m not racist and I believe this thing because it’s economic in nature.’”
Interesting that the most air headed political in office feels that all Trump supporters are uneducated, country bumpkins.
