Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) won in New York’s 14th Congressional District under a slogan of “Socialism Will Win,” despite socialism having failed everywhere it has been tried. The fact that she won despite record setting employment and unemployment numbers, a dynamic GDP, rising wages and a strong and resilient stock market, should tell us something about New York voters in the 14th CD.
AOC wants to eliminate the Electoral College. “It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” she tweeted. What does the Electoral College have to do with slavery? Or more to the point, as the National Black Republican Association proclaimed, “The Republican Party is the party of civil rights and the four F’s: faith, family, freedom and fairness. The Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism.”
She tweeted on another occasion, “The actual fear driving the attacks on my clothes, my checking account, my rent, isn’t that these folks are scared that I shouldn’t represent people in Congress . . . It’s fear that they’ve allowed their riches, their privilege, + their bias to put them to a point where they can’t.” Can someone diagram these sentences? Can someone please decipher these sentences?
Upon losing the Amazon headquarters, $27 billion in taxes and 25 ,000 jobs, AOC tweeted, ”Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, every day New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate green, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.” AOC seems proud of the fact that she denied her constituents the choice of applying for these jobs: typical socialist behavior.
AOC sad, “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.” Politifact corrected her outrageous claims. The average number of hours worked in the private sector has been about 34.5 hours a week since 2006, except for a recession dip. Less than 5% of the work force has multiple jobs. And she’s an economics major from Boston University? What does this say about Boston University?
“If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress – rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House,” AOC said in a conference call to a political action committee. Hey, AOC, the three branches, not chambers, of government are the executive, legislative and judicial. And she’s a United States Representative?
AOC predicted, “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is, your, your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, observed that “AOC is a scientifically illiterate fool who operates on the verge of mental retardation.” That’s giving her too much credit.
“Stupid is as stupid does.”
