Today’s headlines tell us that AOC now condemns the use of the word “surge” when referencing the current border crisis.
And her reasoning is off the charts hilarious.
Apparently, AOC missed out on more than a few vocabulary lessons back when she went to school.
As Fox News explains:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is condemning the use of the term “surge” when discussing the ongoing border crisis at the southern border.
“They wanna say, ‘But what about the surge?'” Ocasio-Cortez said on Tuesday night during an Instagram Live session. “Well, first of all, just gut check, stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you consciously is trying to invoke a militaristic frame.”
“And that’s a problem because this is not a surge, these are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded, which by the way is a White supremacist idea-philosophy, the idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are,” the congresswoman continued.
Should we pause for a moment to visit Webster’s dictionary?
Because surge is defined as:
One of her critics, Townhall.com senior writer Julio Rosas, who’s been reporting from the border, defended the “surge” term.
“I’ve been using the term ‘surge’ because there’s a higher than usual amount of people illegally crossing into the U.S. I’ve seen it with my own eyes on a nightly basis for the past week,” Rosas reacted.
He added, “Yes, there are kids here, often by themselves. It’s emotionally taxing to see that night after night because God only knows what they’ve been through. Funny how AOC raced down to TX for the winter storm but she can’t be bothered to come down now to see what’s happening.”
Despite the continuous censorship of conservatives on social media, AOC took more than a few hits.
She acting like we need to be very careful with our terms because it unconsciously invokes “x-y-z”…. but yet they were NOT SO CAREFUL with their words when they called The Jan 6th Capital March an INSURRECTION, then they labelled all conservatives INSURRECTIONISTS? Explain..?♀️

So, I watched this a few times, confusedly
My conclusion: She doesn’t know the difference between ‘surge’ and ‘siege’

I have lived all my life in Texas and have been to Mexico many times throughout my life and you young lady do not know what you are talking about!

I am 40 miles from the border, rural, it’s bad. The other night we saw at least 25 people w/flashlights roaming the hills behind our house, & the next day holes had been cut & fence posts bent on our property fence & on the neighbor’s fence. Last week a fire was set in the hills

How is she able to mix “surge” with “insurgents”.
She’s just trying to manipulate the watchers!

And perhaps this one, that best sums up AOC:
Nut job. Cute. But, a nut job.
