"New York Congresswoman and Democratic firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez really got under conservatives’ skin with a brief rant at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference & Festival that they say painted former President Ronald Reagan as a “racist.”
AOC was interviewed Saturday at the festival by The Intercept Senior Politics Editor Briahna Gray, and discussed Reagan’s political exploitation of race, without explicitly calling him a racist.
“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working class Americans,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “is Reaganism in the eighties, when he started talking about Welfare Queens.”
