Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed the GOP and “white supremacist base” for the mass shootings while accusing President Trump of racism for attacking the squad.
She tweeted: “Video games aren’t causing mass shootings, white supremacy is. Sadly the GOP refuse to acknowledge that, bc their strategy relies on rallying a white supremacist base. That‘s why the President hosts stadiums of people chanting “send her back”& targets Congress-members of color.”
Video games aren’t causing mass shootings, white supremacy is.
Sadly the GOP refuse to acknowledge that, bc their strategy relies on rallying a white supremacist base.

Two of the deadliest shootings were a Muslim targeting a gay nightclub and an Asian targeting VT students. What about them?

The only person to blame is the person who committed the act. That’s it

If occasional mass shootings are because of white supremacy, then what do you call the cause of the 293 innocent victims who have been murdered in Chicago this year? Are they victims of “black supremacy?”

So AOC is labeling every single person at a Trump rally as a white supremacist, terrorist.
SHE NEEDS TO BE CENSURED and EXPELLED.

You were saying only the other day that anyone who imagined themselves marginalized had no choice but to be violent. You might really want to sit this one out and go back to figuring out how to make rice.

That’s quite enough bigotry from you, Congresswoman.
Describing Trump’s support as a “white supremacists” is a horrible slur, and by your standards, constitutes incitement to violence against Trump supporters.

How many of the 6 mass shootings in Chicago this weekend are the result of white supremacy?

Speaking of rallying & targeting congress members:”If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”(MaxineW)

Unstable people with hate in their heart and serious mental issues that choose to squeeze the trigger are the ones to blame. Lumping these sad people under your cry of White Supremacy isn’t going to do anything to help change the situation and it sure isn’t the cause.

The Dayton shooter supported Elizabeth Warren. Are you blaming her for the shooting? Are you blaming Bernie for the guy who shot up the Congressional baseball game? El Paso was a registered Democrat. Portland was an Antifa member. I guess it’s leftists that are the problem.
