Ocasio-Cortez Calls For Abolishing Prisons


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said this week that it was time for the United States to have a serious conversation about “decarceration” and “prison abolition in this country.”

“Mass incarceration is our American reality,” the former bartender tweeted. “It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”

Yes, we do need prison reform but abolition is beyond idiotic. Why do Democrats keep turning a blind eye to the insanity Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez insists on spewing out?

Now ask yourself this simple question: Which side is consistently proposing things that are good for the country and which side is always advocating for bad? You can’t keep advocating for bad things for this country without it becoming obvious that that is your actual agenda.
