"You cannot stop the call of history. You may use troopers, you may use fire hoses & water, but it cannot be stopped. There cannot be any turning back. The world has seen what is happening."

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC on crime and policing:
at 13:04
"We are at a time in this pandemic of unprecedented economic desperation. I will bet the farm that that has way more to do with any uptick in crime than the New York City police department's budget.
Because all those billions of dollars somehow have not prevented the uptick in crime that we're seeing right now. And the definition of insanity is choosing to do the same thing over and over and over again expecting different results.

This film was made in 1945. I wasn't around then. So why does this look so familiar?
Where have I heard this before?

"You want to know why you are not getting the breaks you deserve? I happen to know the facts. Some of the things I see in this country of ours make my blood boil! I see people with foreign accents, making all the money!
I see negroes holding jobs that belong to me and you! If we allow this thing to go on, what's going to become of us real Americans? What are we real Americans going to do about it? Here is the truth about negroes and foreigners! The truth about the Catholic church!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC on white supremacy:

"White supremacy is a belief system based on the idea that people of color, especially Black people, are fundamentally illegitimate as equal citizens or human beings.
Calling into question the citizenship of elected officials of color, especially when the answer is obvious, is one way it manifests.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC: "Crime is a symptom of a diseased society that neglects its most marginalized people, and we do not solve that problem with police."

Some right-wing media outlets have taken a clip of a Kamala Harris interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert aired before June 18, 2020 out of context, and using it to paint a picture of Kamala Harris as "instigating violent riots". Part 2 of 3:
This aired only weeks after the Black Lives Matter protests grew resulting from the murder of George Floyd, well before she was nominated for Vice President. She was already showing support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Responding by force will only escalate the Black Lives Matter movement. It's best to deescalate the Black Lives Matter movement by redressing grievances, police reform, pacification (eg, community policing), and by using only limited, legitimate use of force.
