Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York agreed on Tuesday with an interviewer’s claim that there were “white supremacist Jews” who aligned with “racism.”

Ocasio-Cortez was speaking with Ebro Darden on his hip-hop radio show “Ebro in the Morning.”

According to Fox News, Darden remarked, “How do you have white supremacist Jews?”

“How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish?” he asked. “It’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing.”

She then endorsed Palestinian mob violence, stating, “I believe that injustice is a threat to the safety of all people, because once you have a group that is marginalized and marginalized and marginalized — once someone doesn’t have access to clean water, they have no choice but to riot, right?”
