Her hate for white Americans is astounding…
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the defector new head of the Democrat Party, is no stranger to being made to look ridiculous.
And it happened to her again this week when she attempted to make the case that white supremacists get off scot free with terrorism charges.
Her argument, that she made to an FBI counterterrorism official, was that Muslims are called terrorists and white supremacists are not, Fox News reported.
The New York Democrat used a hearing on Tuesday to suggest that Muslims are being treated differently in the U.S., including getting charged with terrorism for criminal acts, while white supremacist attackers avoid being charged with “domestic terrorism” for similar crimes.
Michael McGarrity, the assistant director of the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, fired back at the freshman Democrat, explaining that the authorities can’t charge people with a “domestic terrorism” charge simply because such a charge does not exist in U.S. laws.
“You’re using the word ‘charge,’ as I said before there’s no domestic terrorism charge like 18 USC § 2339 ABCD for a foreign terrorist organization,” he said.
“What we do both on the international terrorism side with the homegrown violent extremists and domestic terrorism, we’ll use any tool in the toolkit to arrest them,” he said.
“You’re not going to find an actual charge of domestic terrorism out there if you look at Title 18–,” he said to the Democrat.
Ocasio-Cortez insisted that the San Bernardino shooters and the Pulse nightclub shooter were “charged as domestic terrorist incidents,” but that is incorrect.
“So, because the perpetrator was Muslim they’re — doesn’t it seem that because the perpetrator is Muslim that the designation would say it’s a foreign organization?” she said.
“No, that is not correct, that is not correct,” McGarrity said. “Some of the definitions I think we’re using, we’re talking past each other.”
After being proven incorrect she got on Twitter to claim victory in the hearing, even though she was trounced by the FBI official.
“This hearing was wild. First the FBI witness tried to say I was wrong. I tried to be generous + give benefit of doubt, but then we checked. I wasn’t.
“Violence by Muslims is routinely treated as “terrorism,” White Supremacist violence isn’t. Neo-Nazis are getting off the hook,” she said.

FBI Asst. Director of Counterterrorism Michael McGarrity has to repeatedly explain to Ocasio-Cortez that domestic terrorists are not charged with domestic terrorism because no domestic terrorist statute exists
AOC, who is a *lawmaker*, does not understand what that means
