AOC Accuses GOP of ‘Fascism’ After Expulsion of Two Tennessee Lawmakers

Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) accused Republicans of being fascists after the party expelled two lawmakers in Tennessee for participating in gun control protests during House proceedings in the state Capitol.

“Republicans may think they won today in Tennessee, but their fascism is only further radicalizing and awakening an earthquake of young people, both in the South and across the nation. If you thought youth organizing was strong, just wait for what’s coming. Gen Z don’t play,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

From Breitbart:

AOC’s comment sparked backlash from Republicans, who accused her of either advocating violence or watering down the word fascism.

“Because demanding the expulsion of a political opponent from a legislative body is only an “assault on democracy” when the wrong side does it. It’s (D)ifferent when they do it,” tweeted Club for Growth senior analyst Andrew Follett.
