"Straight Up Racist": AOC Slams People For Not ‘Patroning’ Chinese Restaurants Due To Coronavirus

“People are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lashed out at ‘straight up racists’ for not ‘patroning’ Chinese restaurants.

“Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism, where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants, they’re not patroning Asian restaurants because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus,” she said on Instagram Live on Tuesday.


As Fox News notes, social media users were quick to call out AOC for trivializing actual racism.

“Honestly though, Alexandria. Can we at least try to reserve the term racism for things that are actually evil and racist?” said congressional candidate Luke Edison Negron.

If everything is racist, nothing is racist?

Context matters greatly little Ms AOC. St Patricks Day has been cancelled, won’t someone think of the Irish…(says an Irish man).

And if people are dining out Greek and Italian that can only be what?

In France and in Switzerland people love Chinese restaurants. Those in Paris and in Geneva, where I eat regularly, are always full. The food is excellent, the places are very clean, the service is polite, the price of food is good.

The more I compare the old world of Europe to the new world of the USA, the more differences I notice. Here in Europe, civilizations are more than a thousand years old. They have been through good and bad, ups and downs, many famines and wars. We recognize delicious food and eat it. We also recognize junk food and do not eat it. People in Europe are sophisticated and not easily impressed by fake news or propaganda.

Can’t argue with the points that you made but the last sentence begs the question “Why do Europeans keep electing the likes of Merkel & Macron”?

Europeans do not really elect Merkel and Macron, dear TravelAbout. Elections in the EU are rigged, have been so for many years now. It is the Pentagon and CIA (Langley, Virginia), who “elect” our leaders. Then, oh wonder, the election results come exactly as they wished. We are an occupied continent, Europe is not free, as you might now; US tanks and bombs and bunkers everywhere, especially in Germany, Italy, the Baltic States. And CIA torture prisons in Romania, Poland, and God knows where else …. Europe is a sort of overseas “protectorate” or colony of the USA.

How quick this Neiman Marxist jumps to the race card. Newsflash — people are also not “patroning” a lot of Italian restaurants. AOC is not a leader — she’s an identity politics tool of the deep state. It needs stooges like her to carry out its “divide-and-conquer” strategy among the clueless masses.

“Patroning” – yes, what a strange newspeak word of the New World. Do US Americans really “patron” restaurants? The US is getting weirder and weirder every year. So bigly weird and covfefe that it is almost like a new language for me. I learned English the old fashioned way. My dictionary says: to patronize – verb: 1. treat in a way that is apparently kind or helpful but that betrays a feeling of superiority – “she was determined not to be put down or patronized” Similar: treat condescendingly treat with condescension condescend to look down on talk down to put… Read more »
