Donald Trump has opened his arms and welcomed white nationalists into the mainstream of the United States. In Charlottesville a white supremacist mowed down a peacefully protesting woman, murdering her. At the time, Trump described the neo-Nazis as “good people, too.” Now, the far right hate groups have began attacking the youngest woman in the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Fox News looked as if it went overboard into the right and moved from being merely ultra-conservative to out-and-out bigots, according to the representative:
‘Why white supremacists love Tucker Carlson.’

Ocasio-Cortez has been a fighter, and she took up battle with the white supremacists, saying Tucker Carson “finances The Daily Caller, a news and opinion website:
‘Let’s learn about this, shall we?’
‘Many have recognized that
@FoxNews has crossed a line beyond conservatism and into outright bigotry with their financing of Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. Tucker finances the @DailyCaller, which posted fake adults of me.’
Then, the new representative asked when does this become “harassment?”
‘The real question is, at what point is their nonstop, targeted behavior considered harassment?’
Ocasio-Cortez noted how The Daily Caller has been posting “misrepresentative articles…nonstop:”
‘a) this is not an apology b) you’ve been posting hysteric, misrepresentative articles about me nonstop – many within 24h. The
@DailyCaller, funded by @TuckerCarlson (at @FoxNews), has a well-documented relationship with white supremacy. Unsurprising they’re targeting me.’
