FLASHBACK: That Time Ocasio-Cortez Flashed A ‘White Power Symbol’

As we’ve seen over and over again, the Left has gone full-crazy with their lurking “white supremacy” hysterics.

Last month, for example, leftists shamelessly smeared former Kavanaugh clerk Zina Bash — who happens to be half-Mexican, half-Jewish, and the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors — as a white supremacist for allegedly flashing a “white power” symbol during last month’s confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In reality, Bash was merely resting one of her hands on her opposite arm in a position that looked like the commonly recognized symbol for “OK,” and she quickly denied any baseless accusations of white supremacy sympathies.

And that’s the thing: the accusations were baseless. Though there was zero evidence that Bash was sending some covert white supremacist symbol to her fellow racist haters and the “OK” gesture has been debunked as a pro-white power symbol, she was smeared nonetheless.

By these same evidence-free standards, it turns out Democrat darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a super-secret white supremacist since 2013 — even before the symbol was bizarrely dubbed and then debunked as pro-white supremacy.

In the Instagram post below, Ocasio-Cortez is posing alongside a male on an airplane while flashing the — gasp! — “white power” sign:

As is obvious, Ocasio-Cortez is not some undercover pro-white supremacy racist because of this photo. And neither is Bash.

It’s high time the Left is careful about condemning those on the Right as racists over some innocuous hand gesture. Otherwise, we’ve got a long list of leftists, including former President Barack Obama, running around advocating white supremacy who must be stopped at once!
