Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), like many members of her party, loves to group people together by race.
Here’s just the latest example…
From Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) faced backlash on social media for the second day in a row over racially charged remarks she made.
Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks started on Friday when she defended Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) false insinuation at a House Oversight Committee hearing that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) was a racist for bringing a black Trump official to the hearing to combat the notion that President Donald Trump was a racist.
“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, clearly talking about Meadows.
Ocasio-Cortez rushed to Tlaib’s defense, tweeting: “Total bravery from @RashidaTlaib as she reminds the nation that tokenism *is* racism.”
The tweet from the 29-year-old, which ignited a firestorm online with many calling her statement racist, carried over to Saturday when she was forced to respond to some of the criticism she received.
We have Black staff. We don’t parade them around to show the world how diverse our team is, and use that as some kind of evidence of the absence of racism. That’s what tokenism is.

When logic fails and there’s nothing left to say, just pull out the race card. Democrats do it all the time and seem to get away with it.
Does it matter that it doesn’t get any lower? Nah.
Not to some people.
Check out what happened after freshman Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) labeled Republican Rep. Mark Meadows (NC) a racist, and using a black woman as a prop…
From Federalist Papers:
Minnesota Rep. Rashia Tlaib accused Rep. Mark Meadows of being a racist by bringing one of the top black members of President Donald trump’s administration to the hearing.
Meadows took great exception and began to shout but Tlaib continued to aggressively shout over him.
It got so brutal that Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings defended Rep. Meadows who he knows for a long time.
It was an insane exchange in a day of insane testimony and it is a video you need to watch.
The black woman to whom Tlaib is referring is Lynne Patton, a senior official at Housing and Urban Development.
I am honored to be the special guest of @RepMarkMeadows today. I am here in support of @POTUS and in support of the truth, as Michael Cohen (knows that I know) it to be. And the truth is that it doesn’t take you 15 years to call someone a racist. Unless they’re not one. pic.twitter.com/jPxeYTbTYT

By the time Dems “get it,” it may be too late.
