‘We Have to Change’: AOC Compares American Prisons with ‘Jim Crow, Apartheid, Slavery’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.07.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on the United States criminal justice system Monday; directly comparing American prisons with “Jim Crow, Apartheid, and Slavery.”

“Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

The far-left lawmaker made similar comments last week; saying there should be no billionaires throughout the United States.

“‘Billionaires should not exist’ does not mean certain people should not exist. It means no person should have a billion dollars. The ascent of billionaires is a symptom & outcome of an immoral system that tells people affordable insulin is impossible but exploitation is fine,” posted AOC on Twitter.

AOC: US ‘Infected’ with ‘Virus’ of White Supremacy, ‘Disease Lays Dormant,’ Nation ‘Not Inoculated’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.08.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Wednesday night on “white supremacy” in America; calling the ideology a “virus” behind “segregation and mass incarceration.”

“There is a difference between white supremacists & white supremacy. White supremacy is like a virus. Supremacists are those who have been completely overcome by the disease, but supremacy – the virus – exists on a larger scale beyond just the infected. It also lays dormant,” posted AOC on Twitter. White supremacy is often subconscious. & Clearly, our nation has not been inoculated. WS is our nation’s original sin; the driving logic of slavery, of Native genocide, of Jim Crow, of segregation, of mass incarceration, of “Send Her Back.” It never went away. It was just dormant.”

“Healing ourselves of white supremacy will be hard. It will be hard because it requires us to confront *ourselves.* We wish it was as simple as denouncing a white hood, a burnt cross, vile language. But we need to address where supremacy *begins,* not just where it ends,” she added.

BAD EDUCATION: AOC Ignores Founding Fathers, Says DC Residents ‘Second Class Citizens’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.20.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw her full support behind the Democrats’ recent push to make Washington, DC the 51st state; completely ignoring the Founding Fathers’ intent on creating an autonomous federal district.

“DC was the 1st territory in the United States to free the enslaved. It’s where Black Americans fled the tyranny of slavery & towards greater freedom, to DC. Yet today it’s where 2nd class citizenship reigns, and the right to vote is denied. It’s time to recognize DC statehood,” posted AOC on social media.

Democrats in the House of Representatives launched a historic bid to transform the District of Columbia into a full-blown state this week; a move that would give the federal territory one Congressperson and two Senators.

House Democrats, in their first hearing on D.C. statehood in more than 25 years, on Thursday advocated for the District of Columbia to become the country’s 51st state as Republicans raised concerns about recent corruption scandals involving local D.C. officials,” reports Fox News.

“Critics of D.C. statehood have long cited local corruption as one reason to oppose statehood,” adds Fox. “Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said he wanted Thursday’s hearing to delve into the ongoing scandal involving D.C. Councilman Jack Evans.”

“Sadly the allegations against Mr. Evans are just the latest in a series of local D.C. political scandals,” Jordan said. “We cannot and should not ignore these unpleasant facts.”

Earlier this week, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser installed hundreds of ‘51-star’ flags across Washington to signal her support for statehood.

“DC veterans have served and died for their country, yet they lack representation in Congress. Join us tomorrow as we raise the 51 star flag, honor our vets and rally behind DC statehood,” posted the Mayor on social media.
