AOC: ‘I think we will return to Jim Crow. I think that’s what we risk’

AOC told the publication that democracy in the United States could die ten years from now. 

“What we risk is having a government that perhaps postures as a democracy, and may try to pretend that it is, but isn’t,” Ocasio-Cortez said, claiming that “white-nationalist, reactionary politics” is “starting to grow into a critical mass.”

Then she predicted the return of segregationist Jim Crow laws.

“I think we will look like ourselves,” the Democrat said. “I think we will return to Jim Crow. I think that’s what we risk.”

Ocasio-Cortez pointed to election integrity laws Republicans have passed in red states like Florida and Texas, which she sees as oppressive.

“You have it already happening in Texas, where Jim Crow-style disenfranchisement laws have already been proposed,” AOC said. “You had members of the state legislature, just a few months ago, flee the state in order to prevent such voting laws from being passed.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says there’s a “very real risk” the U.S. will no longer be a democracy in 10 years, warning of a “return to Jim Crow.”https://t.co/RIQbSlimzz

AOC then defended critical race theory and attacked conservatives criticisms of it.

“You have the complete erasure and attack on our own understanding of history, to replace teaching history with institutionalized propaganda from white-nationalist perspectives in our schools,” she added.

“This is what the scaffolding of Jim Crow was,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.
