Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not reject her suggestion that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, would be racist, contrary to what you could read today. On the contrary, the new congressman simply reformulated his initial attack to include more malicious words.
"It's just about emphasizing the model, right? We're not talking about progressives, we're distinguishing four people" Ocasio-Cortez told CNN, Manu Raju.
She added, "And knowing the media environment in which we operate, knowing the number of death threats we receive, knowing the number of detentions by concentration, I think it's worth asking why."
Remember: this is supposed to be a clarification. But compare it to what motivated the member's remarks in Raju in the first place.
On Wednesday, after Pelosi allegedly accused the New York MP and her fellow first-year Liberals, including Liberal representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, of speaking openly about democratic affairs Private, Ocasio-Cortez has press that she felt targeted.
"When these comments started for the first time, I sort of thought she was keeping the progressive flank further from the arm in order to protect the more moderate members, which I understood," she said. entrusts. Washington Post.
Ocasio-Cortez made reference to the in camera meeting as well as to other critical things that Pelosi has said in the past about the New York representative and her so-called team.
The congressman added, "But the persistent selection … she became at a point where it was simply disrespectful … the explicit selection of newly elected women of color.
The implications here are clear: Pelosi is targeting Ocasio-Cortez and her best friends because, well, the speaker may or may not be … you know. Now, let's go back and look at the supposed "Ocasio-Cortez"go down. "She only says the model. She thinks it's worth "just to ask why. "She did not want to suggest that Pelosi be a racist. In fact, she said Thursday that Pelosi was "absolutely not, absolutely not" racist. Ocasio-Cortez just shows a trend, honest!
Uh-huh. The "just asking questions" routine was fun when South Park did it like a parody of Glenn Beck. But they did it like a joke, not like a transparent attempt to come out of a stupid act of friendly fire.
Ocasio-Cortez wants you to believe that she is only asking simple questions about why the speaker "selects" four new members of Congress, each of whom happens to be also a woman of color. The fact that people have deduced from his comments that the speaker is a racist is an unexpected and regrettable consequence!
