Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went back on Crooked Media’s Pod Save America where she was asked whether she really believes that Trump supporters are racists. She blathered on and on, starting out with the point that if you ask someone if they are racist it is a trap. But when she wound down, she warmed to the idea that many of Trump’s supporters don’t believe they are racist, but that’s only because they aren’t sufficiently woke.
“I don’t necessarily want to vilify people who vote for Trump but at the same time you also need to call racism out,” host Jon Favreau said. “The biggest mistake that we have, and it’s a trap that’s set by the right whether intentionally or unintentionally, is just the frame of asking ‘Is blank racist?’” Ocasio-Cortez replied. She continued, “It’s not about asking whether Trump voters are racist. We need to talk about racism, not racists.” So dumb it truly hurts.
“Trump relied on a coalition and a core part of that coalition were racists building a coalition with all sorts of other people that could be susceptible to racist views if they were blanketed and layered and made people feel good about it not being a racist thing,” AOC said. She added, “And so there are a lot of people 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 it just allows itself to just—we get caught in this debate of is something racist, and then a person uses 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.’”
So, we (meaning white people and Trump supporters) are all brain-washed racists according to this Marxist nitwit. None of us can think for ourselves and AOC has to educate and save us. Not this lifetime or ever.
“She starts by saying not all of Trump’s supporters are racist but she ends saying if Trump’s supporters were sufficiently educated (by the woke left) they wouldn’t deny that they are racist by pointing to things like economic factors.
“As AOC sees it, anyone who denies being a racist is simply taking a convenient out, i.e. making an excuse. Because the only correct answer is that racism is responsible for everything Trump supporters believe.
“The comparison here isn’t to other political views but to religious ones. Racism is the intersectional equivalent of original sin. Everyone is guilty and if they deny it that just proves they are far from salvation. The solution is the Great Awokening, i.e. people are spontaneously overcome with the conviction of their own sin and make a confession.
“In fact, earlier in this clip, AOC specifically says that white people are the demographic who need to get woke: “It’s going to take a lot of white people. We need white people right now to do the work…It’s white people talking to other white people about race. And that I think is a lot of what we’re going to need.”
“I don’t think accusations of racism leveled at millions of people this casually really deserve much of a response. And, let’s face it, the whole game AOC is playing renders any response pointless. As she’s already said, anyone who denies it simply hasn’t been educated enough. And therein lies what I believe is the real reason AOC and others who adopt this viewpoint have done so: They see themselves as the teachers, which necessarily puts them in charge. If you follow AOC on Twitter you may have noticed that she only has two modes: Accusing and teaching. In fact, her social media motto seems to always be teaching. She is never the learner and that’s true even when she clearly doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
“You see the same dynamic with the students at Evergreen State College where a bunch of woke 19 and 20-year-olds were confident they should be educating the entire faculty. It’s a viewpoint that appeals to a lot of people who want to be in charge of what everyone does (see the Green New Deal) without having to do much or know much about anything in particular.”
He’s right – it doesn’t deserve a response… except that people are buying into it and the whole flaming country could tip over into communism because of people like AOC. Ignore her at your own peril. AOC’s philosophy is death on a cracker to freedom-loving Americans.
And in a truly elitist viewpoint, she thinks anyone who supports President Trump is an idiot and a racist. They are beneath her. Well, that rabble she looks down upon will reelect Trump and hopefully run her out of office. Then she can be woke all she wants to be.
White Liberal Democrats are trying to erase their racist hateful past. First remove the statues, then call others White Supremacist & racist. Do a name change from Democrats to Democratic & now play the race card like they've suffered from racism. Beware Of The Democrat's Agenda! pic.twitter.com/6KCowZdnbf

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials
It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.
Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
