Steven A.| AOC objects to the statue of a Catholic priest in the Capitol, and it sounds to me that the reason she does is because the man was white. Isn’t making decisions solely on the basis of color, the very definition of racism?
The priest, Father Damien, a Belgium-born 19th-century priest 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 with a debilitating and contageous disease, a disease which was so bad to have insured the phrase ‘what, am I a leaper?’ is a prime example of colonialism and white supremacy. Does she feel like his accomplishments pale in light of hers?
What has she ever done?
I’m sure she makes a mean ‘SJW’ behind the bar (that’s a drink I just made up, it consists of whatever you want, and it always gets put on the person sitting next to you’s tab.’ Not that there is anything wrong with being a bartender, but if you are going to slander canonized saints, expect people to ask what you have accomplished.
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. But hey, that’s just like my opinion, man.
“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.”

AOC needs to do a little research before she race pimps.
