Wednesday on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, self-proclaimed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) spoke favorably of Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s decision to retire at the end of the court’s term.
“[T]here’s no way of saying what’s actually in Justice Breyer’s mind,” AOC said. “But I do believe that the urgency of this moment — the fact that the country is very clearly on a precipice of fascism and a return to Jim Crow, the sweeping attack on voting rights in this country and the very real threat of seeing what happened with the consequences of Ruth Bader Ginsburg passing during the Trump presidency — that we could very well risk something like that happening again. And if that was part of his calculation, I think he was correct in his conclusion.”
If the country is on the verge of fascism, it’s a Democrat fascism. It is Democrats who champion censorship, cancel culture, and violence against their political opponents. It is Democrats who have unleashed the violent shock troops of Antifa and Black Lives Matter to wreak havoc and fear in the streets of America. It is Democrats who have weaponized the IRS, the FBI, and Big Pharma against average American citizens who don’t fall in line with the Democrat agenda. Democrats are the fascists in America today.
If the country is on the verge of losing voting rights, it’s because of Democrats demonizing election integrity legislation as “voter suppression.” The only thing the GOP is trying to suppress is widespread voter fraud, which Democrats fiercely support because they know they can’t win elections anymore without it.
As for a return to Jim Crow: it was Democrats who were responsible for Jim Crow laws, and they’re 100% responsible for the racial animosity, division, and return to segregation in America today.
If AOC is opposed to fascism and racism, and wants to defend voter rights, she needs to become Republican.
