A fake news giant is giving a pass to a preferred political candidate for making a “white supremacist” hand gesture just days after attempting to ruin the life of a U.S. Coast Guard member for making the same gesture during a live segment.
“Ocasio-Cortez caught doing white power sign?” Paul Joseph Watson wrote on Twitter.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is running for Congress in New York’s 14th congressional district.
On Saturday, NBC news attempted thrust a U.S. Serviceman and member of the Hurricane Florence response team into the national media spotlight for making the same hand gesture on live television.
“A member of a U.S. Coast Guard team responding to Tropical Storm Florence in South Carolina appeared to flash a white power hand gesture in the background as a captain was being interviewed Friday by MSNBC,” NBC reported. “The man has since been removed from the Florence response operations and the incident is under investigation, said Coast Guard Lt. J.B. Zorn.”
Predictably, NBC has failed to Ocasio-Cortez to the same standard.
The “OK” gesture as a symbol of “white supremacy” started on 4chan’s /pol board, where users of the site planned to prove the gullibility of the mainstream press by injecting the narrative that the gesture had been co-opted by neo-Nazis into the mainstream. Their plan worked to perfection, and though the mainstream press is aware that it is the butt of the joke, it ran with with the joke anyway – at least when the accused “white supremacist” is not a Democrat candidate for Congress.
NBC prefers to bash military members who risk their lives in protection of this fine nation rather than upper-middle class millennial socialists like Ocasio-Cortez who will surely seek to destroy it when elected to office.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
