    The statue of a Catholic saint who served people with leprosy in Hawaii is an example of colonialism and white supremacy, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested an Instagram story Thursday.

    “This is what patriarchy and white supremacist culture looks like! It’s not radical or crazy to understand the influence white supremacist culture has historically had in our overall culture & how it impacts the present day,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

    “It’s not Queen Lili’uokalani of Hawaii, the only Queen Regent of Hawaii, who is immortalized and whose story is told. It is Father Damien. This isn’t to litigate each and every individual statue, but to point out the patterns that have emerged among the totality of them in who we are taught to defy in our nation’s Capitol: virtually all men, all white, and mostly both,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

    While serving the colony, Father Damien built six chapels, heard confessions, held Mass daily, constructed coffins, and dug graves until he contracted the disease, according to the Architect of the Capitol. He became Saint Damien after the Vatican was canonized him in October 2009.

    “Even when we select figures to tell the stories of colonized places, it is the colonizers and settlers whose stories are told – and virtually no one else,” Ocasio-Cortez said. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Says Defunding The Police Will Require ‘Experimentation’ With Public Safety)

    Hawaii’s other statue in the Capitol is of King Kamehameha I, who became king after unifying the Hawaiian islands in 1810, according to the Architect of the Capitol. The two statues were gifted to the National Statuary Hall Collection from Hawaii in April 0f 1969.

    John from Waukesha, if the Democrat Party’s depravity (AOC’s political bigotry being just ONE example) is what compels you to vote for President Trump… How will you vote if/when things return to ‘normal’?

    I really, really don’t want to vote for Trump. But I’ll be darned if I’ll vote for a party with this level of thoughtlessness (and indifference, frankly) swirling around their leadership.

    AOC really is stupid beyond all recognition.
