Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the radical Southern Poverty Law Center tag-teamed on Twitter to push the false narrative that President Trump doesn’t care about terrorist attacks committed by white supremacists.
That’s false — he has repeatedly condemned racism in all forms. In January 2019, the White House issued this statement in response to the former bartender’s race-baiting:
“Cong. Ocasio-Cortez’s sheer ignorance on the matter can’t cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform, and has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms.”
AOC: White Supremacists Are Biggest Terror Threat
AOC and the SPLC also falsely claimed that white supremacists committed the most number of extremist killings in the world in 2017.
That is false. The reigning champs are radical Islamists.
AOC tweeted: “White supremacists committed the largest number of extremist killings in 2017. What the President is saying here: “if you engage in violent acts of white supremacy, I will look the other way.” Understand that this is deliberate. This is why we can’t afford to sit on the sidelines.”

Fact Check: Islamists Commit the Most Extremist Killings, Period.
Islamist terrorists committed more extremist killings around the world in 2017 than any other group. That’s the same every year.
In the United States in 2017, white supremacists killed a total of 18 people. That’s what they call a “slow day” in the Middle East.
AOC and SPLC Misquote Trump
AOC and the SPLC also deliberately distorted Trump’s remarks by cutting off the end of his sentence, and by comparing apples to oranges. Here’s what President Trump actually said:
REPORTER: “Do you see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world?”
TRUMP: “I don’t really so. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center then tweeted: “We saw a nearly 50% increase in white nationalist hate groups between 2017 and 2018,” while linking to a map of the UNITED STATES.
White Supremacists Are a Tiny Fringe Group
The question posed to President Trump was about whether white nationalism was becoming a rising threat around the world. The reality is, white nationalists and supremacists are a tiny fringe group.
Most white people reject its extremism — both in the United States and in white-majority nations around the world.
If the United States were overrun by white supremacists, there’s no way Barack Obama could have been elected president — twice. In fact, tens of millions of white Americans voted for Obama and revere him to this day.
Slavery and racial segregation could never been dismantled without the support of white Americans. The North could never have won the Civil War without white men who fought and died to end slavery.
The SPLC and the media also intentionally cut off the end of Trump’s sentence, where he condemned white nationalists by saying they have “very, very serious problems.”
SPLC Founder Fired for Racism and Sex Harassment
As BizPac Review reported, both Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Southern Poverty Law Center have destroyed their own credibility with their repeated false statements and overt hypocrisy.
Last week, the SPLC — which claims to champion minorities and women — fired its co-founder Morris Dees for sexually harassing female workers and making racist remarks.
How fitting, eh?
The group that accuses everyone in the world of racism and bigotry decides to fire its founder for… RACISM https://t.co/HhMeac0aDX

SPLC Calls Dr. Ben Carson a White Supremacist
The activist group is so radical that it actually called Dr. Ben Carson (who’s black) a “white supremacist.”
The SPLC also recently lost a defamation lawsuit brought by British Muslim journalist Maajid Nawaz.
In 2018, the SPLC was ordered to pay $3.4 million to Nawaz for putting him a list of “anti-Muslim extremists” simply because he’s a Muslim who dares to criticizes radical Islam.
Media: Blame All Whites
Should Islamic terror attacks implicate all Muslims? No. But it’s OK to blame all whites for an attack by one white supremacist.

If AOC wants to see “extremist killings,” just wait for May. That’s when Ramadan starts — the bloodiest month in Islam.
This is another lie by clueless AOC.
Also, if she's interested in full stats for worldwide extremist killings, hold tight until May–that's when Ramadan starts. It's the bloodiest month every year for terrorist attacks.https://t.co/n5eTQFu2q1

Ocasio-Cortez’s Popularity Craters
Meanwhile, AOC’s unfavorable ratings rocketed 15 points amid her unending series of epic gaffes. A new Gallup poll states:
“Americans have taken note of the meteoric rise of Ocasio-Cortez, who went from a Manhattan bartender to a committee member on the powerful House Financial Services Committee in less than a year.
But their view of her has become slightly more negative than positive in the process.”
AOC’s tanking popularity proves that you can fool some of the people some of the time. But you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
Ocasio Cortez's unfavorable rating spikes 15 points amid epic gaffes even SNL hilariously pounced on https://t.co/NrBZYgYuyU
