AOC Retweets NYT Columnist Who Indirectly Compares the Minneapolis Riots to the Boston Tea Party

New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow, who also appears often on CNN and MSNBC, made a tweet earlier that was retweeted by AOC where he referenced the Boston Tea Party, calling it a “riot that gave birth to this country.”

He then said that it “resulted in $1.7 million dollars (in today’s dollars) in property damage (tea).” Without specifically mentioning the Minneapolis riots, which are still occurring, he then said that he was “just going to leave this right here for whoever needs to read it.”

AOC has been vocal today on the platform, criticizing Mark Zuckerberg and President Trump earlier, in what can only be seen as a political attempt to intimidate Zuckerberg, since he clearly is not aligned with the president and she obviously doesn’t care what Trump thinks either way.

She claimed that they were both “sitting in a tree” and “messing up our democracy.” She had retweeted a tweet from President Trump where he didn’t exactly praise the Facebook CEO, but simply pointed out that “Zuckerberg is today criticizing Twitter.”
