AOC’s Vocabulary Fails Her AGAIN

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:

noun- a sudden powerful forward or upward movement, especially by a crowd or by a natural force such as the waves or tide.
“flooding caused by tidal surges”
verb- (of a crowd or a natural force) move suddenly and powerfully forward or upward.
“the journalists surged forward”
Whereas insurgents are defined as:
a rebel or revolutionary.
“an attack by armed insurgents”
Seems like common sense to me, but clearly AOC doesn’t understand the difference between the two words.
Fox Continues:

One of her critics, 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.

And perhaps this one, that best sums up AOC:
