On this episode of “Alex from the Bronx™,” our erstwhile bartender did what she always does: fired off a ridiculous charge of “racism” while hypocritically playing a battle of wits with no ammunition. As to be expected, she got her butt handed to her on social media. Again.
As reported by my RedState colleague streiff on Friday, Kyle Rittenhouse, the Illinois teen charged in the shooting deaths of two Antifa-type anarchist-thugs who first attacked him during rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the aftermath of the what appeared to the necessary police shooting of Jacob Blake, has been released from custody after posting $ million in bail. Blake survived the attack, BTW.

Just one “problem.” Kyle Rittenhouse is white.
Which meant go time for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-KNOW-IT-ALL), who had on her bingo card: “white supremacist kills two innocent people who who were peacefully protesting the shooting of an innocent black man by a racist white cop.”
People who argue that dramatic changes to policing, including budgetary ones, will mean “violent people will be let out of jail to roam free” rarely ever acknowledge that’s actually the current system we have today for the privileged https://t.co/MXnm6h3PdZ

The more AOC opened her mouth, the more she changed feet.
“Does anyone believe Rittenhouse would be released if he were Muslim & did the same thing in a diff context?
“For people who say “systemic racism doesn’t exist,” this is what it looks like: protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems.
“Law and disorder.”
Oh, please. You just described an Islamist committing a terrorist attack. Have you know shame? Wait — never mind.

Although her use of “carceral” was impressive, don’t you think? Although, I always get the impression that pretend-brainiacs like AOC constantly have the Merriam-Webster site open when they babble on social media. “Carceral,” BTW:
“A carceral state was widely used in ‘punishment and criminal justice literature’ with varying definitions and parameters. According to a 2017 article in Theoretical criminology, the carceral state is far from being a “single, unified, and actor-less state responsible for punishment.”
She could not be more full of crap. Needless to say, the rational among us on Twitter had questions — and more than a few facts — including this from Matt Walsh.
“This guy viciously assaulted a random 92 year old woman. He had 100 previous arrests and was still able to walk the streets. I don’t remember you expressing any concern over this? It happened in your city recently. Why didn’t you speak out against his privilege?”
I got this one, Matt. Because AOC is a lying hypocrite of the first order — but you already knew that.

So, Alex? And “Audit the Vote” has a question for you, as well.
How many people released through NY’s no bail system have committed other violent crimes?
Meanwhile a 17 y/o with no criminal history has to get a 2 million dollar bond to be free.
And this is your evidence for privilege.

Legoshi made a good point — although this ship sailed a long time ago.
Your bigotry is leading you down the path of being ill informed.

And El Jefe nailed AOC, her hypocrisy — and the truth.
“Let’s be honest — nobody is more privileged than you. You spout off nonsense, all day, every day — and no media members give you or your idiocy the withering critical examination you so richly deserve.”
Amen, El Jefe.
Let’s be honest – nobody is more privileged than you. You spout off nonsense all day, every day – and no media members give you and your idiocy the withering critical examination you so richly deserve.
That’s real privilege.

To be sure, hypocrisy is a genetic trait of all liberals. But in Socialist Barbie’s case, she’s the smug-as-hell hood ornament on the Democrat hypocrisy clown car.
AOC, staggering, right? So many of use are depending on you. Stay being u! pic.twitter.com/UhMVlR8OK9

I just threw up in my mouth.
Meanwhile, in election-related news, as I reported earlier today, Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell told Newsmax TV on Saturday that cases she will file this week “will be biblical.” Stay tuned, and fasten your seat belt — or at least grab the popcorn.
