Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic candidate running for a House seat from New York's 14th District, challenged the Trump administration "caravan" narrative and asked supporters to push back against white supremacy in the wake of the Pittsburgh hate crime attack.
The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist has repeatedly challenged the talking points of both President Donald Trump and established members of the Democratic Party. But her recent move to refocus her efforts on white supremacist violence rather than "undocumented immigrants" prompted vicious right-wing criticism. Using her social media platforms with hundreds of thousands of followers, Ocasio-Cortez compared how Trump supporters and Americans at large would treat Saturday's deadly synagogue shooting had it been conducted by Islamic terrorists rather than a white supremacist.
"Imagine if it was ISIS that sent bombs to US officials, started shooting in grocery stores, and invading places of worship. How do you think this administration would respond? & why is the response so different when those same terrorist acts are committed by white supremacists?" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Sunday.
"White supremacists committed the largest share of domestic-extremist related killings in 2017. Its time to call these bombings + targeted mass shootings what they are: terrorist attacks," she tweeted Saturday, sharing an Atlantic article about "The Resurgent Threat of White-Supremacist Violence."

If you have white skin and hold a position of authority, you are a “White Supremacist.”
“If you have white skin and hold a position of authority, you are a White Supremacist.
