Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed without evidence in an hour-long Instagram post on Tuesday that the southern states are not “red states” but rather “suppressed states” that must be released to “heal” America.
“This is what we have to do. We need to organize. And I think what we’ve seen in Georgia is a really good example with black women leading the way, with multiracial and multicultural organizations leading the way, uh, they’ve proven that southern states are not red states. », She affirmed. “These are suppressed states. Which means that the only way for our country to heal is the effective liberation of the southern states, the effective liberation of the poor, the effective liberation of the workers – from economic, social and racial oppression. It is the only way. It is the only way. “
