AOC Excuses, Justifies, and Condones Violence

So much for nonviolent protests.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) casually condoned riots in response to certain injustices in a radio interview

What injustices was she referring to? The 29-year-old congresswoman wasn’t clear.

What about persistent refusal by the federal government to address climate change, such as by passing a Green New Deal? That doesn’t come up in the clip, but to progressives it’s a momentous injustice affecting everyone.

Seems like some mighty large riots might be justified.

Likewise, she called ICE detention facilities at the border “concentration camps” not long ago. Surely some rioting by “marginalized communities” in protest would be justified in that case under AOC’s logic.

Of note: Some headlines about her comments are framing what she said as being specifically about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Not so, although that’d be bad enough. She was quite clear in saying that riots in response to injustice are justified in many contexts, including here in the U.S.
