AOC race baiting, e.g., that whites are behind climate change, is because Ms. Cortez was among Latinos who have been raised to believe North America actually belongs to them. They are not here to assimilate, but to annex lands for the Latino future they fully expect to come. And if Americans continue to persist in their complacency, Latinos are organized to take over these lands. What can you say, “Except Americans” are foolish, and will get not what they expect, but precisely what they deserve. I spent the better part of my graduate career in sociology rubbing shoulders with MECHA and La Raza, and they are absolutely dead serious. If you handicap the takeover, right now, I think it is even money.
