(Right Country) – Perhaps more dangerous than the spread of the coronavirus and even the spread of panic, is the spread of utter idiocy and nonsense that consumes the minds of easily influenced liberals from the likes of uninformed, ignorant politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In her most recent attempt be “woke” and culturally enlightened, AOC demanded the government ought to be paying out coronavirus reparations to “black and brown” people for their apparent disproportionate suffering from the virus. In a tweet published Friday, AOC claimed that “environmental racism” is an “underlying health condition.”
“COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities,” tweeted the Democrat lawmaker. “Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions. Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.”
As per usual, AOC offered absolutely not a shred of evidence to back up the assertion that the coronavirus is killing more black and brown people, nor did she explain how the environment is racist.
One of her supporters responded to the tweet by suggesting there was some kind of conspiracy amongst store owners in black areas not to enforce social distancing properly.

I've also noticed that stores that mostly serve white customers are enforcing social distancing more than those in some black and brown communities. I have no idea why, it was just something I noticed while driving past grocery stores in different areas.

It was just something she “noticed” as she was out driving past grocery stores in her area. Perhaps, she should be at home following stay-at-home orders and reducing the spread of the virus instead of joy-riding around checking out the social distancing policies of grocery stores. Which, not even sure how that is done from inside of a car to begin with.
Another respondent suggested that black and brown people were deliberately flouting social distancing rules and putting themselves at greater risk.
Is it that? Or maybe they're not heading the warning and still filling up streets and local parks en-mass?

GASP! What a novel suggestion! Could black and brown people actually be responsible for their own behavior instead of just unwilling victims of some massive, uncontrollable disadvantage?
Meanwhile, another individual suggested that black bodies “work differently” and that this was also the fault of white supremacy.
Their bodies also WORK DIFFERENTLY, and we blatantly IGNORE THIS in medicine and don't study the differences and then adjust treatment for. White supremacy pervades EVERYTHING.

It’s hard to even fathom that this type of stupidity exists. Yet, there it is. Right on Twitter, for the world to see.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first instance AOC has inserted her uber-intelligence into the coronavirus crisis. Previously, she demanded the FDA relax its rules on blood donation from homosexuals, which they subsequently did. The rules used to require any man who has had sex with another man to wait 12 months before donating blood, now the rule has been changed to 3 months despite the much greater risk of infections.
If AOC is any indication of the future of America, we are really screwed. People living in major urban areas have been completely blinded with the obsession of being as “diverse” as possible at the cost of common sense.
It’s truly amazing that AOC was even elected in the first place. This is exactly why the spread of liberal idiocy and nonsense is far more dangerous than the spread of the coronavirus. America will recover from the coronavirus but if more and more lawmakers like AOC are elected, that will be a hit America will never be able to recover from again.
