Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fails miserably at dissociating her socialism from Venezuela's

Article:


New York 'it girl' and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has always carried one great big piece of political designer baggage with her: Socialism, with all its ghastly train of ruin, which she is trying to repackage as something fresh and new and fashionable. So all eyes were on her as she got a big condemnation of socialism right in her face from President Trump at his State of the Union speech the other night, with the president denouncing its horrors in Venezuela and declaring "America will never be a socialist country." Seventy-six percent of Americans approved of the speech.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews, hardly a hostile interviewer, asked her for a response and she came up with this whopper.

"What did you make of the president's aggressive statement about Venezuela tonight, and he talked about being a socialist country and how we're never going to be a socialist country. It was pretty truculent but it tied the notion of socialism to that particular regime. What do you think about the president, why he did that?" MSNBC's Chris Matthews asked.


"I think that he needs to do it because he feels like -- he feels himself losing on the issues," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Every single policy proposal that we have adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular, even some with a majority of Republican voters supporting what we're talking about."

"I think he sees himself losing on the issues, he sees himself losing on the wall in the southern border, and he needs to grasp at an ad hominem attack and this is his way of doing it," the Congresswoman said. "What we need to realize is happening is this is an issue of authoritarian regime versus democracy. In order for him to try to dissuade or throw people off the scent of the trail, he has to really make and confuse the public. And I think that that's exactly what he's trying to do."

"Confuse the public"?

AOC is the progressive/socialist version of the annoying little kid, standing on the diving board, yelling,
"Mommy! Daddy! Look at me!"

She reminds me of the privileged and indoctrinated youth of today who are resoundingly uneducated, and some like AOC who are demonstrably simple, but convinced beyond any doubt of their own brilliance. She reminds me more of simpleton Russian immigrants.

Some_one, while not all that bright, is deliberately and intentionally dishonest and amoral. Some_ones, in contrast to AOCs, are driven by hatred and victim hood and want to wreak vengeance on whitey with a side objective of reveling in the death of the unborn.

Stupid vs. Evil.

Saw a post recently that said, "A Socialist is someone who wants everything you have except your job". Pretty much sums it up, doesn't it?

I would agree, except that her ideas are so destructive and dangerous. It's like paying "too much attention" to the dogsh*t on your shoe: There's no such thing as "too much" attention; You just have to keep scraping your shoe until it's all gone, otherwise you'll continue to smell the dogsh*t. As long as anybody anywhere keeps taking this moron seriously, it's important to keep proving how stupid she is.

I don't believe she is truly a threat. Eventually, Pelosi and the other senior Dems are going to send a few goons over to her office to tell her they're going to turn off the money tap if she doesn't knock it off.

All this attention, even the negative attention gives credibility to the left's claim that she is effective and that conservatives are "scared" of her. The attention gives her good press in the dishonest media, not those making fun of her.

I understand your point.

And I also realize I don't qualify as a "conservative", but frankly I am scared of her. Well OK not her, personally, but scared of the fact that more and more people are buying into her destructively stupid ideas. As long as anybody thinks her socialist twaddle holds anything resembling credibility, this country is in grave danger.
