While some Democrats try to make a silk purse from a sow’s ear, many Democrats find Ocasio-Cortez disturbing.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez called her, “the future of the Democratic Party”. To that I say Democrats have a stark future ahead.
Ocasio-Cortez may be the dumbest Democrat I’ve seen in a while–and that’s saying something. Because of her stupidity, I wondered what the Democrats will do with her.
She’s truly the definition of a loose cannon. But instead of a loose cannon like blowhard Maxine “Jame Brown” Waters, Ocasio-Cortez demands attention.
It might be her youth or it might be her ignorance, but people do watch her. Because people love watching train wrecks.
Democrats’ second most famous socialist made a smash in early November when Time noted the cost of her wardrobe:
On Thursday, Washington Examiner politics and media writer Eddie Scarry tweeted a snapshot of newly elected Democratic Rep. of New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, near Capitol Hill on Thursday.
“Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now. I’ll tell you something: that jacket and coat don’t look like a girl who struggle,” read the tweet that has since been deleted.
Whatever his intentions were with the remark, it appeared to some that he was weighing in on Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments about not being able to afford to rent for an apartment in Washington, D.C. until her job officially begins in the new year.
But her lunacy didn’t end there.
Post-election, Ocasio-Cortez equated her victory to the lunar landing.
Democratic Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday said fellow progressives’ and her election victory – in an overwhelmingly Democratic district – was akin to the 1969 moon landing and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
“We’ve done what we thought was impossible,” she told a crowd during an event hosted by an environmental group, the Sunshine Movement, that aims to combat climate change.
“We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
It’s bad enough this clown thought she landed on the moon. But “established civil rights”? Holy Mother of MLK!
Why not say she broke the color barrier in baseball, the sound barrier, knocked out Sonny Liston, and touched the surface of the sun!
But Ocasio-Cortez’s antics get better. As Politifact notes, Ocasio-Cortez makes quite a few false assertions.
I’ve highlighted just a couple that were deemed “False”.
“$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.”
In her defeat of Republican Rep. Karen Handel, Democratic challenger Lucy McBath “was outspent 5-1.”
Ocasio-Cortez misinterpreted data to come to these very wrong conclusions. And we aren’t talking about rounding errors. These are serious math errors, added to a complete misinterpretation of data.
How do Democrats see this playing out in the long run? It’s like giving a 3-year old a loaded hand gun.
This next statement really blows my mind. Clearly Ocasio-Cortez just made this up.
“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.”
And there is so much more. Like Ocasio-Cortez comparing migrants invaders trying to get into America to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany.
Then she actually threatened President Trump’s son whom she said trolled her. In that case, Ocasio-Cortez warned Trump Jr not to mess with a woman who will soon have the power to subpoena him. She backtracked quickly, but the damage was done. Ocasio-Cortez showed herself to be exactly like her leadership. Just another power-hungry Democrat.
It’s only a matter of time before Democrats figure out how to destroy Ocasio-Cortez. And that day is coming.
