We’ve seen people make accusations based on tattoos before … it cost former fact-checker Talia Lavin her job when she misidentified a tattoo on a disabled veteran’s arm and suggested that he was a Nazi. Now Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is out to show that gun manufacturers are affiliated with white supremacists by point out the tattoo on the QAnon Shaman’s chest.

On Wednesday, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform held a hearing with gun manufacturers called, “Examining the Practices and Profits of Gun Manufacturers.” As ABC News reported, AR-15 sales, and thus revenue, are way up, partly to do with manufacturers appealing to “manhood” (according to the House committee’s investigation).

On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez asked the CEO of Daniel Defense if he recognized the tattoo of a man featured in one of their advertisements (although the picture’s cropped so it doesn’t look like an ad at all). That tattoo, the expert claims, is being adopted by white supremacist groups.

We’ve been assured that the “OK” hand signal is also a white supremacist signal, but only if it’s a conservative doing it. See?

What a clown show.
