Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said many of President Donald Trump’s supporters were not educated enough on racism to understand the policies they support are racist on Crooked Media’s “Pod Save America.
Ocasio-Cortez says “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. 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. 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.’”
Does she really think she has some leg up on intellect here?
“Not Educated Enough”?
Is that like having a Degree In Economics & working as a Waitress In A Taco Bar?
Just ironing out a few details

When indoctrination is considered education you are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez! AOC’s constant unsubstantiated claims of racism towards Trump supporters is now a clear case of her racism embraced by the Democrat party, the party of intolerance.
Underestimating your opponent is never a good idea. Thankfully I don’t care what she thinks of me. She is trying to convince those with basic common sense that she knows what she is talking about. It just won’t happen. Everyone can see she is just spouting off leftist talking points.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
