AOC objects to the statue of a Catholic priest in the Capitol because the man was white. Isn’t making decisions solely on the basis of color, the very definition of racism?
Judging that all white people must be evil because a few are is as ridiculous as saying that all bartenders are mental midgets just because AOC is.
The priest, Father Damien, a Belgium-born 19th-century priest who dedicated his life to treating lepers in Hawaii until the disease finally took his life fifteen years later.
Why would anyone consider him to be worthy of a statue? Statues should be only of the worthy such as Colin Kaepernick. Or Louis Farrakhan? Or even Maxine Waters?
According to AOC, a man who dedicates his life to treating people for a disease that no one else wanted to a prime example of colonialism and white supremacy. Does she feel like his accomplishments pale in light of hers?
What has she ever done?
Well, she has plied men and women with alcohol so they could take advantage of their God-given right to drive drunk and preventing 25,000 evil high paying jobs with excellent benefits from coming to her state.
So, what is the answer? All statues must be of a woman or a person of color or they don’t belong? I don’t know about you, but I see this nonsense snowballing if the Democrats win in November.
But if that is to be the agenda, shouldn’t Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Adam Schiff give up their seats to people of color? Shouldn’t that be AOC’s next crusade? To get all whiteys out of congress? I’m sure Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib would be more than happy to help.
“This is what patriarchy and white supremacist culture looks like! It’s not radical or crazy to understand the influence white supremacist culture has historically had in our overall culture & how it impacts the present day,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
. @AOC calls the statue in the US capitol building of Father Damien, a canonized saint in the Catholic Church, a part of “white supremacist culture.”
