WASHINGTON, D.C.—In an Instagram video filmed from her posh D.C. apartment, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on all Americans to infect themselves with the Wuhan coronavirus to prove they are accepting of viruses and diseases of all colors and nationalities.
"If you refuse to get infected with the coronavirus just because it's Chinese, you are what's wrong with this country," she said as she struggled to figure out how to operate a toaster. "Every inch of America crawls with the germs of hatred, and we must stamp out any hint of racism by welcoming this disease with open arms."
"We must stop ostracizing this brave disease of color just because it's from a foreign country," she said on an Instagram video. "Americans are segregating themselves from this Chinese virus, and this hateful bigotry must stop."
Ocasio-Cortez is quarantining herself, of course, but says it's different for her because she is an important politician. "I have, like, a name placard and everything," she said. "If you do it, it's racist. If I do it, it's for the greater good. All Americans are equal, but some Americans are more equal than others."
