AOC: Federal Govt. Needs to Fund Programs to ‘Deradicalize’ GOP White Supremacists

'This was never about safety for them, it was always a slogan because if they actually cared about rule of law they would speak up when people break the law...'

The federal government should use taxpayer funds to “deradicalize” white supremacists in order to make sure “their world will never exist,” radical socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed.

“The white supremacist cause is futile, it’s nihilist—-it will never be realized,” she said during a virtual town hall on Friday.

“The path forward for all of us is a multiracial democracy that fights for the economic and civil rights of every American,” Ocasio–Cortez said, accusing the men and women who participated in the pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 of racism.

“Their world will never exist,” she said. “That’s why we’re seeing violence right now.”

When asked how Americans should respond to those who believe the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent but did not participate in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Ocasio–Cortez warned Republicans should never be trusted with power again.

“This is a problem that doesn’t go away on Jan. 20,” she said, adding that it will require “many, many, many millions of hands” to help “pick up the pieces.”

One solution she floated is a federally-funded program to deradicalize white supremacists.

“We need to double, triple or quadruple, or increase funding for these deradicalization programs en masse,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Ocasio-Cortez has previously suggested that all of Trump’s supporters are guilty of white supremacy.

“I don’t want to hear or see the Republican Party talk about blue lives ever again. This was never about safety for them, it was always a slogan because if they actually cared about rule of law they would speak up when people break the law. They would speak up. They would enforce fairness and equity, but they don’t give a damn about the law. They don’t give a damn about order. They don’t give a damn about safety,” she said during an Instagram Live video last week.

“They give a damn about white supremacy, they care about preserving the social order and the mythology of whiteness,” she added. “They lust for power more than they care about democracy.”
