AOC: Vast Majority of Domestic Terror Comes From White Nationalism

Fact checked

According to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the vast majority domestic terror incidents comes from so-called “white nationalism” because “American apartheid” has never fully healed.

AOC made the comments on MSNBC’s “All In” while discussing the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband at his San Francisco home early Friday morning.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “Yeah, I think, you know, I think it is important to acknowledge the point that you said that political violence can come from all different parts of the political spectrum while also really having to acknowledge a very central fact that reporting from the FBI, and  even in terms of Homeland Security, Jamie and I sit, and he is the chair, and I’m the vice chair of the House Oversight Subcommittee on civil rights, and civil liberties.”

She continued:

“We have held hearings on this, and there is absolutely no doubt that the data shows that the vast majority of incidents of domestic terror come from white nationalism……And that we are really, truly facing the environment of fascism. And in the United States of America, this type of intimidation at the polls brings us to Jim Crow.

It brings us back and harkens back to a very unique form of American apartheid that is not that long passed ago, and we have never fully healed from that. And those wounds threatened to rip back open if we do not strongly defend democracy in the United States of America.”
