AOC tells MSNBC’s Hayes ‘White nationalism’ threatens Americans with ‘fascism,’ return to ‘apartheid’

Appearing on MSNBC Friday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., admitted that America is “actually facing an environment of fascism” and threatens to return to “a very unique form of American apartheid” because of White nationalists.

The congresswoman from the Bronx made her comments alongside Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., while being interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes.

Hayes had brought two lawmakers into Friday’s episode of his show, “All In With Chris Hayes,” to discuss the rise in political violence in the United States, including recent attacks on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D.-Calif.

During the conversation, Hayes mentioned the attack on Pelosi and the riot on January 6th, but he also admitted the 2017 attack on Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., in the practice of Republican baseball, and the assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh, to indicate that there is “some ideological monopoly in this.”

Still, he insists that more “tolerance” of violence comes from conservatives and supporters of former President Donald Trump. He said, “And yet, it also feels the difference is, on the other hand, because of Donald Trump mainly, there is more tolerance for, sorry, sorry, asking for threats and threats.”

Hayes also proposed the fact that some Arizona poll watchers have been wearing tactical clothing in recent days, which the panel considered “intimidating voters,” as more evidence of the right people pushing for “threats.”

Ocasio-Cortez ran with all of the host’s premises, agreeing that while there is violence on both sides, it mostly comes from White nationalists.

She opened her monologue, saying, “Yeah. I think, you know, I think it’s important to acknowledge the point you made, political violence can come from all different parts of the political spectrum.”
