Quite the Stretch: AOC Says Prison System is Like 'American Apartheid,' Calls For 'Decarceration & Prison Abolition'


Hey, everybody! I don't know if you heard, but socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wants to abolish the prison system because..."Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery?" Oh, right. Silly me. I forgot. When you don't have an actual argument, just claim racism and everything will work out for you - at least among politicians and the bought-and-paid for media.

Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter - again - on Monday in order to inform everyone just how racist the prison system is. Never mind the fact that President Donald Trump's administration did something that the previous few presidents could have but didn't - pass prison reform.

Here's Ocasio-Cortez's tweet, followed by a subsequent tweet further explaining her "logic":






Except, we already came together for solutions to crime. They're called laws, and if you break one serious enough, you go to a magic place where you face the repercussions of your actions. It's called personal responsibility, and if you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Are there actual injustices in our justice system? Of course. Mistakes occur, judges legislate from the bench and a select few dirty cops will unjustly arrest people. But that is the exception, not the rule.

Ocasio-Cortez complains of prison overcrowding from sentences being passed down for people that supposedly "don't belong there at all." As said earlier, that's why the Trump administration already did something about that when they passed the First Step Act back in December 2018. About 4,000 inmates were scheduled for release in July, only three months ago.

Maybe Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk are just jealous that they weren't the ones who came up with the new Act, so they turn an issue that's already being addressed into a national emergency because racism or something.
