Check another box for AOC. OF COURSE she is a 'survivor' of sexual assault and, of course, although she hasn't said yet, it is a White Supremacist.

Jesus, what a fuckin joke.

"Biden to sign immigration executive orders and establish task force to reunite separated families."

Translation, the Great Re-Set-Replacement continues.

"We European-Americans are a stateless people. We have citizenship, but no country. No progress is possible until we face this.

We have no political representation. Any politician who said whites have legitimate racial interests would be crushed. Look at what happened to Steve King, whose decades of conservative service did nothing to save him after a New York Times reporter misquoted him to make him sound “racist.” He even voted to denounce himself and it did no good.

There is not a single white man in the Western world — no matter how powerful, well-connected, or wealthy — who would not lose his position if he openly defended white interests."
