AOC slams FBI over double standard for white supremacists

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Points To Double Standard In Domestic Terrorism.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter that “Neo-Nazis are getting off the hook.” The video down below shows the back-and-forth she had with FBI leadership over who gets defined as a terrorist.

According to New York Post, Alexandria questioned Michael McGarrity, who is the assistant director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, at a House Oversight subcommittee hearing Tuesday. The New York Democrat made a point that white supremacists and Muslim terror suspects are treated differently under the law.

“Doesn’t it seem that because the perpetrator was Muslim that the designation would say it’s a foreign organization?” Ocasio-Cortez asked McGarrity.

He jumped to interrupt her. “That is not correct,” he said, “Doesn’t matter what religion.”

“It is a global issue,” Michael McGarrity responded.

“So why are they not charged with foreign terror?” Ocasio-Cortez said. Earlier she had referenced white supremacists like Dylann Roof, who shot up a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

“Because the United States Congress doesn’t have a statute for us for domestic terrorism like we do for a foreign terrorist organization like we do for ISIS, al Qaeda and Al-Shabaab,” McGarrity replied.

“Violence by Muslims is routinely treated as ‘terrorism,’ White Supremacist violence isn’t.”
