Ocasio-Cortez slammed over Tweet defending Rashida Tlaib saying ‘Tokenism’ is ‘Racism’
Oh man, I don’t know if if it’s scary or if it’s funny or both, but this woman just defines politics. This week she was slammed hard on Twitter for ‘promoting bigotry.’
“‘tokenism *is* racism” Yikes. Why are we promoting this kind of discussion? Civil rights was more than 60 years ago, and we accomplished everything that needed to be done. Also, we have the lowest unemployment in history for Black Americans.
But no, because a Democrat isn’t in power and in charge of making that happen: According to them, it’s tokenism.
As reported by dailywire.com
“Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced backlash this week after she came to the defense of fellow far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Twitter following racial remarks that Tlaib made during a House Oversight Committee hearing.
Tlaib falsely suggested that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) was a racist this week when Meadows brought Trump official Lynne Patton to Michael Cohen’s hearing.
“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and … the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee is alone racist in itself,” Tlaib said as she took aim at Meadows.
Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting: “Total bravery from @RashidaTlaib as she reminds the nation that tokenism *is* racism.”
