Default WH: Ocasio-Cortez “doesn’t know racism”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/ampht...mpression=true

So I’m guessing reverse racism is actually racism and white men are oppressed? (Don’t ask me how. It is and they are, because reality is backwards and discriminatory)

Also, apparently dancing women are a threat.

I agree with the White House. Trump has spent more years practicing racism than Ocasio-Cortez has been alive, he is surely an expert in racism by now.

I suspect the conversation is going something like this:

COOPER: Is the President racist?
AOC: Yes.
WH: No he’s not. You’re too young and pretty to know what racism is.
AOC: He’s called Nazis “very fine people”, called for the deaths of wrongfully accused black boys, and not actually disavowed racism, so yes, he is racist.
ALT-RIGHT: Go back to San Juan. You’re too much of a s**c to run in 2024.
AOC: Huh? Meh. You don’t matter. *probably dances her way to the OO*
ALT-RIGHT: Come see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! We’re being oppressed!

…at least I hope that’s how it goes. Because damn it, I want to see her dance to the OO.

ACTUAL ALT-RIGHT: You mean Mexico. I mean, with a name like Ocasio-Cortez and being so damn uppity, where else could she be from? Guatemala I suppose...

Is anyone calling for her birth certificate? Not that it’d need to say she was born a citizen of the US just to be in Congress, but the sort of people who ask for that sort of thing don’t necessarily get the finer points of the Constitution.

If I'm filling in the blanks correctly, I don't think that's what they'd call her, I think Archie Bunker was the last to use that term. She'd be a b**ner or a w****ck.

...Give them time...

Also, I’m a little rusty on my anti-Latinx racism. Too much focus on those damn Golliwogs.

I think the by far overwhelming epithet would be c**t.. Intersectionality is where it's at. She may be a PoC, but she's a female PoC, and those epithets do more work.

Why can't it be both? Don't pigeonhole the bigotry!

I knew saving that would eventually come in handy.
