If every argument you have for every issue on the table is racism you really don’t have much of an argument in the first place.
But considering it’s AOC we’re talking about here we’re not surprised.
Color us doubly not surprised she’s clueless about why DC is not a state …
DC was the 1st territory in the United States to free the enslaved.
It’s where Black Americans fled the tyranny of slavery & towards greater freedom, to DC. Yet today it’s where 2nd class citizenship reigns, and the right to vote is denied.
It’s time to recognize DC statehood. https://t.co/AkfaRHw38C

Second class citizenship.
Wow, she really pulled that one out of her backside.
Then the US capitol would need to be moved. Not being a voting state was by design, which you would know had you paid attention in school. Civics class wasn't about Hondas

"The Founders intended for the capital of the newly created United States to be a neutral ground for co-equal sovereign states to come together to transact the nation’s business"

Is she ever right about anything?
The other social media guy was much better at this. AOC shouldn't have fired him.

HA HA HA HA HA HA
Boy, that tweet is dumb. D.C. had slavery legal right up to 1862, when it was declared illegal by Abraham Lincoln. Mutiple states and prior territories (later states) were free long before D.C.

She’s the queen of dumb tweets.
You REALLY need a civics class. DC is NOT a state for a reason. Besides, you actually have influence there, but the senate has the final say. 🤷♂️

No, dear. Now buy another round for the House.

You need to take a history course. This is so completely wrong.

Ok now pretend DC votes overwhelmingly Republican. Go!

That's a lie
— Vareck The Sarcastic Jew (@BornGerman) September 20, 2019
There’s so much ignorance in this tweet. DC was hardly the first. And every DC resident has a right to vote. Stop lying.

We’re not sure she’s lying … honestly she may be absolutely clueless this time.
Maybe a little bit of both?
