AOC Fires Back at Tucker: His ‘Unmitigated Racism’ Is Why I Don’t Go on Fox News

Progressive superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blasted Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a “white supremacist sympathizer” on Wednesday, pointing to Carlson’s “unmitigated racism” as the main reason she hasn’t appeared on the conservative-leaning network.

“I go back and forth on whether to go on Fox News,” AOC tweeted in response. “The main reason I haven’t is squaring the fact that the ad revenue from it bankrolls a white supremacist sympathizer to broadcast an hour-long production of unmitigated racism, without any accountability whatsoever.”

Addressing Carlson’s segment directly, she further noted that it’s a “lazy, tired, racist trope” to paint immigrants as dirty, adding that “environmental injustice is a major motivation as to why we introduced and wrote the Green New Deal the way we did in the first place.”
