Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez( D-N.Y .) is facing more criticism over controversial comments where she saidthat some communities, including those under the United State, had “no choice” but to riot.
She made the comments during a radio evidence on New York’s Hot 97 on Tuesday while discussing existing conflicts over the nation of Israel.
“Once you have a group that is marginalized, ” Ocasio-Cortez said, “once someone doesn’t have access to clean water, they have no choice but to riot.”
She then widened her comments to include other communities, including some in the United States.
“I’m not even talking about Palestinians, ” she added. “I’m talking about communities in poverty in the United Commonwealth, I’m talking about Latin America, I’m speaking about all over the world.”
Some on social media remarked that it was tone-deaf for the Democratic socialist to be sympathizing with rioting after her statements were quoted in the manifesto of an Antifa domestic terrorist who assaulted ICE detention centers.
“Shes gone” on to claimthat “social destabilization is what happens when people do not have a program or feel like there’s no eyesight for their future.”
