Well, the liberal lunatic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at it again.
Most of us are no longer surprised at the stupidity that regularly flows from her lips, and her latest statement takes the absurdity to another level.
After Sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson failed her drug test for marijuana, AOC claims that anti-cannabis laws are racist and an “instrument of colonial policy.” Now, she’s demanding that Richardson be allowed to run in the Olympics 100m race.
Richardson has been banned for 30 days and will miss out on the 100-meter dash at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
The criminalization and banning of cannabis is an instrument of racist and colonial policy.
The IOC should reconsider its suspension of Ms. Richardson and any athletes penalized for cannabis use. This ruling along w/ IOC denial of swim caps for natural hair is deeply troubling. https://t.co/Ao1Yu8Ax9G

But AOC isn’t the only one rushing to the defense of Sha’Carri Richardson.
Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted that he opposes Richardson’s suspension from the sport and pushed President Joe Biden to oppose it too.
“Republican congressman Matt Gaetz said Friday that he opposes sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson’s suspension over a positive marijuana test, pushing President Joe Biden to do the same.”https://t.co/uqAkSK84eR

Doesn’t Gaetz have bigger fish to fry right now?
And if he really wants to defend someone, how about defending the numerous American citizens that are still behind bars for the so-called attack on the Capitol on January 6th?
Sha’Carri Richardson seems to be the only one that understands what she did wrong and has accepted responsibility for it.
“I want to apologize for our actions,” Richardson said. “I know what I did. I know what I’m supposed to do. What I’m allowed not to do and I still made that decision. But [I’m] not making an excuse or looking for any empathy in my case.”
The 21 year old superstar doesn’t need politicians making excuses for her error in judgment especially stating that her punishment is racist. Richardson has a bright future ahead of her based on her overwhelming talent and determination to achieve her goals no matter what adversity she faces.
