This is just an amazing speech.

Last Night AOC spoke at The Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn to a crowd gathered to discuss the dreadful events that transpired over the weekend.

“Beyond calling for national gun-control measures, many speakers focused their remarks on denouncing white supremacy, drawing loud cheers from the crowd. They pointed to white supremacy as the cause of mass shootings like the one in El Paso, which was carried out by a man who allegedly wrote that he was responding to the “Hispanic invasion of Texas,” and as the reason why gun violence in neighborhoods like Brownsville doesn’t receive the same response as other types of shootings.

In her speech, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said legislation should be passed making it easier for the FBI to investigate and crack down on “white supremacist terrorism.”

She also dedicated a portion of her speech to directly addressing people who “are falling into the grips of white supremacy that find themselves getting radicalized in a funnel of vitriol.”

 

“We will always be here and hold space for you to come back,” she said. “We will love you back. You are not too far gone.”

In response to “Send them back” she said…

“Come back. We will love you back.”

Good for you, Alexandria.
