AOC Slams House GOP: Has ‘Legitimate White Supremacist Sympathizers’ at ‘the Core’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is declaring that there are “no consequences” in the Republican caucus for violence, misogyny, insurrection, and racism.

The Democratic lawmaker told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes late Wednesday that she “senses” a “profound difference” between the Republican caucus last term and the Republican caucus of this term.

She continued, “That difference was that it really felt that last term, the Republican caucus was one of extreme fealty to Donald Trump. There were some that were true believers, others that simply remained quiet out of cowardice and out of fear of the president’s retribution.”

Ocasio-Cortez then declared that there are “legitimate white supremacist sympathizers” in the Republican caucus now.

“This term, there are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and at the core of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives, and when you see someone like the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of the Republican Party respond to white supremacist vitriol coming from his own members not with censure like they did with Representative Steve King  of Iowa, not with being stripped of committees, not with any consequence, you have to wonder who actually has that power.”

Watch Ocasio-Cortez’s interview below:

Pointing to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Ocasio-Cortez said, “And it increasingly seems, unfortunately, that, in the House Republican caucus, Kevin McCarthy answers to these QAnon members of Congress, not the other way around, and that is something that frankly needs to be said.”

“There are no consequences in the Republican caucus for violence. There’s no consequences for racism, no consequences for misogyny, no consequences for insurrection. And no consequences means that they condone it. It means that that silence is acceptance.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Greene, a freshman representative, to be on a “watch list” not in Congress after a report said that Greene seemed to support executing top Democrats in old Facebook posts. Greene hit back at CNN’s reporting.

A video, from March of 2019, also surfaced this week showing Greene confronting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg and calling him a “coward.” She told CNN that the video was taken while she was in Washington, D.C., “going from office to office in the Senate to oppose the radical gun control agenda that David Hogg was pushing.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s spokesperson Mark Bednar told Axios on reporting of previous remarks made by Greene, “These comments are deeply disturbing and Leader McCarthy plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman about them.”

Responses

  1. When you can’t make sense or come up with a legitimate argument, play the race card. She’s been doing that since she started campaigning. She’s still that crazy child that everyone’s seen in a day care or day school, screaming over some toy.

  2. Gee Alexandria, I seem to recall a few months into 45’s term when one of Bernie’s supporters shot up a congressional baseball team.

    Perhaps AOC could also explain to the public just how Dems (and by default she herself) have historically handled the Anti-Semites in their own party.

  3. Hey AOC! Did you forget that the Democrat Party is the party of slavery, thus the party of the white supremacists/racists? Did you miss the history classes that taught that the REPUBLICAN Party is the one that fought to free the blacks?

  4. hard to trust someone with black eyes and a donkey mouth… in real life she is actually short and not that pretty at all… when I met her I asked her if she knew the difference between choose and select…. and she replied… ” choose is what mexicans wear on their feet ” WTF

  5. I dislike these white supremacists as much as anyone else, but it is a free country last time I looked, or have you forgotten that?

    1. Are you saying, Julie, that we should not be responsible for our own actions, and that the US should not be a country of laws? Because that’s sure how you sound.

      1. Gen Confused: If you truly believed the US should be a country of laws, you would be hollering for the Democrat criminals to be prosecuted.
        Since you haven’t, you really do not believe in that. You only are saying that in order to act virtuous (like typical Democrats).

  6. Barbaric savages? I think of Isis, Khmer Rouge, or the Hutu.
    Ocasio-Cortez attended Boston University, where she double-majored in international relations and economics, graduating cum laude. She was previously an activist and worked as a waitress and bartender before running for Congress in 2018. (WiKi). One is inclined to believe any cum laude graduate especially from Boston University would not have been in the financial state she was in before being elected to congress. Those days are now over for her. Retirement and a free ride for life. Demonize Politics.

    1. So, what you are admitting is that you won’t bother with the concerns of someone on the frontlines in Congress, Ernest, YOU feel it necessary to attack the person.

      1. You mean like SHE’S doing, GC? That’s the trouble with you liberal nutcases. What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander. You don’t apply the same rules for yourself as you want to apply to others. It doesn’t work that way buddy.

        1. I am confused, Penelope.

          When has an old Republican or American Fascist felt threatened by Democratic Congress members coming armed onto the floor or whether they have ever felt threatened by insurrectionists breaking into the Capitol Building and had noises waiting for them outside? When has ANY Congress members EVER have to deal with another member making plans to kill them two years before they got elected? When did THAT happen BEFORE January 2021?

          1. Confused Squat Dogfart – The only American fascists were the Democrats that convinced the Southern states to secede from the Union to retain their slaves, voted against Republican legislation to give blacks the vote, then formed the KKK to keep black voters in line. That’s the Democrat heritage. Look to shining examples like Robert Bird, a Grand Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops in the KKK or maybe Gov. Wallace or any of the other Democrat governors that kept segregation alive and well. Read their statements. Learn a little actual history. Or, just keep lying. You’re good at that.

        2. “That’s the trouble with you liberal nutcases.” Penelope

          So you think that I am a nutcase? Wow, that says way more about YOU than it does about me.
