(Conservative Review) -- In an interview on a popular New York radio program earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., excused Palestinian violence against Israel, arguing that marginalized groups “have no choice but to riot.”
Ocasio-Cortez, speaking on Ebro in the Morning, explained her opposition to Israeli policies toward Palestinians, suggesting that Palestinian violence is a response to the conditions created by those policies.
“Once you have a group that is marginalized … once someone doesn’t have access to clean water, they have no choice but to riot,” Ocasio-Cortez said. She expanded on this point, saying poor communities in the United States or Latin America likewise have no choice but to act out violently because of their circumstances.
