Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped into the new House Republican Caucus on All In With Chris Hayes Wednesday when asked how it compares to the previous one. Ocasio-Cortez did not mince words in describing how she believes the caucus is moving in an extreme direction.
“There are legitimate white supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and at the core of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives,” Ocasio-Cortez said. She later added, “There are no consequences in the Republican caucus for violence. There's no consequence for racism. No consequence for misogyny. No consequence for insurrection. And no consequence means that they condone it. It means that that silence is acceptance, and they want it because they know that it is a core animating political energy for them. And this is extremely dangerous. An extremely dangerous threshold that we have crossed. Because we are now away from acting out of fealty to their president that they had in the oval office, and now we are talking about fealty to white supremacist organizations as a political tool.”
