Ocasio-Cortez Says Calling People Communists Has Long History With White Supremacy

Socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter yesterday to make yet another bold remark about right-wingers. This time, she is accusing her detractors of being white supremacists for branding her as a communist.

AOC tweeted out, “Calling people who believe in democracy, civil + economic rights, and racial justice “communist” has a long + rich history w/ white supremacy in the US. It was one of the preferred smears against integrating schools, & one of the main attacks segregationists used against MLK Jr”.

Ocasio-Cortez made this claim by sharing a tweet that made the claim, “the argument that it’s okay to be racist against a socialist who is critical of America was pioneered in the 1960s by National Review in their many attacks on Martin Luther King, Jr.”

Little does Ocasio-Cortez realize that she is not called a communist because of her race, but because of the socialist programs she supports that would bankrupt our nation.

As Vladimir Lenin once said, “The goal of socialism is communism.”
