AOC does not understand folkism:

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the US should be treating all refugees in the same way Ukrainian refugees are being treated worldwide.

"I think the world is watching and many immigrants and refugees are watching, and how the world treats Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees should be how we are treating all refugees in the United States," Ocasio-Cortez told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night.

No, because if the US treats Ukrainian refugees like all other refugees, then Ukrainian refugees will still get an unfair advantage overall, as they are already receiving preferential treatment in the EU. AOC is preaching (d) from the first post in this topic, which has already proven to lose to (c).

The correct response is for the US to prioritize all refugees except Ukrainian refugees, thereby cancelling out the advantage that Ukrainian refugees are being given by the EU. This is (e).

Let me simplify it. Suppose you and another volunteer are both in charge of handing out food to refugees, with them doing lunch and you doing dinner. There are two refugees, one "white", the other "non-white". You see the other volunteer, during lunch, hand out both portions of food to the "white" refugee! So, during dinner, how should you distribute the two portions of food you have?

AOC is saying you should still give one portion to the "white" refugee and the other to the "non-white" refugee despite knowing that during lunch the "white" refugee already got an extra portion from the racist volunteer while the "non-white" refugee got nothing. I am saying you should give both portions to the "non-white" refugee, thereby cancelling out what the racist volunteer did. Who, AOC or myself, truly cares about fairness?

(Also, you should eliminate the bloodline of the racist volunteer ASAP.)
