Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) singled out a statue of Father Damien, a Catholic priest who ministered to a Hawaiian leper colony, as an example of “white supremacist culture.”

“It’s not Queen Lili’uokalani…the only Queen Regnant of Hawaii, who is immortalized and whose story is told. It is Father Damien,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Facebook story in which she lamented the absence of statues of female figures in the Capitol. “This is what patriarchy and white supremacist culture looks like!” In addition to Father Damien, the Capitol houses a statue of King Kamehameha I, who united the Hawaiian islands under one kingdom by 1810.

She is right in the fact that the history of Father Damian is seeped in colonialism.
And Catholic patriarchy. He was abusive to some of his parishioners.

@AOC
just told viewers on Instagram Live that she had a "close encounter" during the attacks on the Capitol in which she thought she might die. Said she cannot disclose full details out of security concerns.

"Wednesday was an extremely traumatizing event. And it was not an exaggeration to say that many members of the House were nearly assassinated."

@AOC says that she didn't feel safe going to the safe room and sheltering with other members of Congress, because she felt some of them might disclose her location to rioters and put her in danger.

I think of, when the 'right' claims some moral high ground, how they treated the music group Dixie Chicks* along with a serving of 'freedom fries'.
