AOC: Americans Not Eating At Asian Restaurants Because They’re ‘Just Straight Up Racist’
U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism, where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants, they’re not patroning Asian restaurants because of just straight-up racism around the Coronavirus.”
Note to Ocasio-Cortez: It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. -Mark Twain
She gets mocked on Twitter:

That’s a complete lie @AOC my wife and I just ate at our favorite Chinese restaurant and it was busy as usual.

Nobody wants to eat at restaurants period.

Lol. She’s a really stupid person! Does she think this crap is going to help the Chinese restaurants? Or is she just trying to spread more division? You decide!

@AOC, the thought of Asian restaurants has not crossed my mind during this whole thing, I just haven’t craved Asian food. When you erroneously assign intentions to people, it reveals that you have no emotional intelligence, and also no “regular” intelligence.

Please @AOC. Who are these people? I’ve eaten sushi 2 times in the last week.
You are creating division using race by making up these stories. Most of us have common sense & understand viruses don’t pick & choose based on race.

It’s funny, this virus DOES make Asian people more susceptible, but there are people (many of them like AOC) that must think only Asian people can get it, or spread it. Evidently. Didn’t pay much attention in school when they talked about viruses and bacteria, did they…
