Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Exploits Pittsburgh Dead

Shamelessness will allow Democrats to wring every last vote out of the senseless and essentially nonpolitical carnage at the synagogue in Pittsburgh. Check out this extract from an email sent out by leftist demagogue Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to her supporters:

A Democratic majority will not bring back the eleven Jewish people in Pittsburgh, massacred while they prayed. …

But on Sunday evening, Pittsburgh mourners—angry and broken-hearted like us—chanted ‘Vote! Vote! Vote!’ They understand the magnitude of the midterm election six days from today: that it affords us the chance to forge a powerful bulwark against Donald Trump’s hate and hold accountable the Republicans who have been complicit in every step of his toxic, self-serving, and destructive agenda.

The implication that Robert Bowers was implementing Republican policy by murdering people for being Jewish is clear.

Actually, the shooting had nothing to do with Trump, whom Bowers dislikes for being such a good friend to Jews. No other president has had the guts to stand up to Islamists and their hand-wringing apologists by moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.

But in politics, perception is reality — or at least it counts as reality on election day. That’s why everywhere you look during election season, you see clouds of vicious, irresponsible lies.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Issues Bizarre Denunciation of Electoral College

Today’s Democrats do not want merely to run our system. They want to tear it down and replace it with something that will serve their sole purpose: power in perpetuity. Their Cultural Marxist rhetoric has been used to attack fundamental pillars of American society that serve as bulwarks against tyranny. Here, the Future of the Democrat Party (as DNC Chairman Thomas Perez calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) swings the P.C. sledgehammer at the Electoral College:

High-profile Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York labeled the Electoral College “a shadow of slavery’s power” in a recent tweet.

Eliminating the Electoral College has become a Democratic talking point ever since the election of President Donald Trump. Democrat Hillary Clinton won the 2016 popular vote, largely on the strength of wide majorities in New York and California, but Trump won the most electoral votes, which are apportioned in proportion to a state’s population.

The Founding Fathers designed it that way on purpose, so that highly populated states like California could not impose their will on the other states, which would lead to an unstable not to mention tyrannical situation.

But Democrats don’t care about that stuff. The Constitution is just a piece of paper scribbled on by Dead White Males. They care about one thing: power. Once they get enough of it, you can say good-bye to our constitutional republic.

Behold the future of a formerly proud political party:

Another Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Introducing Ayanna Pressley

Far left bartender-come-presumed-congresscritter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t the last of her kind. Introducing Ayanna Pressley, who beat 20-year incumbent Michael Capuano in the Democrat primary by double digits. After an easy win in November, she will represent Massachusetts’s 7th District in Congress — the same district once represented by the adamant anticommunist JFK.

Pressley is no anticommunist. She is not only a Woman of Color (a prime qualification among Democrats these days), but a moonbat.

She promises to prevent the USA from defending its territorial sovereignty by opposing any bill that includes funding for a border wall and by abolishing ICE. She has managed to outflank even Capuano on the left by opposing a Blue Lives Matter bill. She wants socialized medicine. She sides with the pampered anti-American jackasses in the NFL who present theatrical displays of disrespect when the national anthem is performed.

At least she appears to have a high enough opinion of her future constituents to be flabbergasted that they would elect her. Check out the look on her face when she found out she had won:

That will be the look on all of our faces when we have to start living under the laws she and others like her are likely to impose.

More Amazing Economics from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Undergraduate tuition at Boston University costs $52,816 per year. Judging by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who got a degree in economics there, it is worth every penny.

She acquired remarkable information, such as the fact that America’s upper middle class no longer exists (actually, it comprised 29.4% of the population in 2014, and has continued to grow).

Better still than facts, she has insight. She knows that the only reason unemployment has been low since we got Obama out of office is that “everyone has two jobs.”

Never mind that nationalizing healthcare under the slogan Medicare for All! will cost us an additional $32 TRILLION over the next 10 years, possibly enough to trigger economic collapse. She understands that we can make up the cost on funeral savings:

“Americans have the sticker shock of health care as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to health care?”

Socialized medicine means not having to pay for funerals anymore. Once the federal government has total control, it can just adjust the regulations so that no one is ever allowed to die.

This is who the liberal establishment embraces as the future of the Democrat Party.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Confirms Her Ditziness in Another Disastrous Interview

Her constituents may not be, but even Daily Show moonbat Trevor Noah is curious as to how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would pay for her extravagant socialist wish list. So he asked her:

Ocasio-Cortez responded first by saying she had “sat down with a Nobel Prize economist last week,” laughing, “I can’t believe I can say that, it’s really weird.”

Not so weird when you consider that Barack Obama was awarded a Nobel Prize soon after taking office. Mad Alexandria could be in line for a prize herself if she keeps spouting moonbattery.

The meeting with the economist did not rectify the serious deficiencies in AO-C’s conception of economics.

“One of the things that we saw is, if people pay their fair share,” she said, “if corporations and the ultra-wealthy — for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he paid as much as his secretary pays, 15 percent — if he paid a 15 percent tax rate; if corporations paid — if we reverse the tax bill, but raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent, which is not even as high as it was before, if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there.”

Never mind that $2 trillion would hardly put a dent in her spending plans. As IQs rise toward room temperature, people become aware that confiscating money at ever higher rates does not increase revenue, because the government can only appropriate a somewhat larger slice of a pie that shrinks enormously when taxation rises.

“That’s $2 trillion in ten years, and it’s — one of the wide estimates is that it’s going to take $3 trillion to $4 trillion to transition us to 100 percent renewable energy economy,” she continued.

A 100% renewable energy economy would cost more than she thinks. In terms of lost tax revenue, mass starvation is quite pricey. Windmills and solar panels would not prevent total economic collapse if efficient means of generating electricity (i.e., fossil fuels and nuclear) are forbidden.

“So we got $2 trillion from folks paying their fair share, which they were not paying before the Trump tax bill. They weren’t — like they weren’t paying that before the Trump tax bill. If we get people to pay their fair share, that’s $2 trillion in ten years.”

A fair share would be a flat rate. This is anything but fair:

• In 2014, the top 50 percent of all taxpayers paid 97.3 percent of all individual income taxes while the bottom 50 percent paid the remaining 2.7 percent.
• The top 1 percent paid a greater share of individual income taxes (39.5 percent) than the bottom 90 percent combined (29.1 percent).
• The top 1 percent of taxpayers paid a 27.1 percent individual income tax rate, which is more than seven times higher than taxpayers in the bottom 50 percent (3.5 percent).

But the only way today’s Democrats would support a flat rate would be if you set it at 100% (as Barack Obama’s father proposed).

Returning to Alexandria’s latest catastrophic interview,

She then argued for implementing a carbon tax claiming that would make “a large amount of revenue.”

But… I thought there would be no allegedly weather-causing carbon in utopia’s 100% renewable energy economy.

“The last key, which is extremely, extremely important, is reprioritization,” she argued. “Just last year we gave the military a $700 billion budget increase, which they didn’t even ask for! They’re, like, we don’t want another fighter jet! They’re, like, don’t give us another nuclear bomb, you know? They didn’t even ask for it and we gave it to them. And so a lot of what we need to do reprioritize what we want accomplish as a nation.”

She wants to abolish ICE; why not abolish the armed forces? If we aren’t going to defend the border from invasion, a military serves no purpose.

Democrats have anointed an idiot as the future of their party. Any random 8-year-old would be as qualified to serve in Congress.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Supporters Are as Clueless as You Would Expect

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is all the rage on the Democrat side of the aisle, earning the enthusiastic approval even of pillars of the liberal establishment like the Washington Post. Her official platform offers lots of goodies at someone else’s expense, including free college, housing as a right, Medicare for all, guaranteed jobs, and open borders so that the whole world can partake of the cornucopia.

Moonbats Outraged by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Parody Video

It isn’t easy to parody the Future of the Democratic Party, because the party’s latest rock star already takes self-parody about as far as it can go. But CRTV’s Allie Beth Stuckey does a commendable job in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez parody video below. She bases the satire on AO-C’s disastrous PBS interview, in which her radicalism and cluelessness were on appalling display:

Pundits on the left perceptively discerned that the video is not on the level. They reacted with outrage, as if progressives did not use similar techniques on liberal platforms like Comedy Central on a regular basis:

As Hot Air observes, the satire is actually less damaging to AO-C than the real interview. The whole point is to generate laughs. But humor is incomprehensible to moonbats unless the butt of the joke is a conservative.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Denounces Capitalism and Occupation of Palestine

Such pillars of the Democratic establishment as the Washington Post are delighted to acknowledge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the new face of their party. To generate such enthusiasm, a young woman who less than a year ago was working as a bartender must have something going for her other than the Woman of Color status that gets WaPo so excited.

What she has is reflexive and unmitigated moonbattery, which she pushes to extremes that will send moderate voters (assuming there are any in her Bronx/Queens district) hiding under the furniture. For example, in a friendly interview with PBS, she crowed that capitalism — which has performed miracles by radically improving the standard of living of the human race as a whole — won’t be around forever:

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez explained, lamenting that people are employed but having to work long hours, “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world,” she continued.

She may be right that capitalism will not always exist. It requires the freedom that leftists systematically undermine. If Ocasio-Cortez et al. prevail, society will collapse into the poverty that accompanies tyranny.

Alexandria further buttressed her hard-left credentials by referring to “the occupation of Palestine.” Hamas and other Islamic terror groups that use similar rhetoric to justify killing Jews will be delighted:

This adolescent radical mentality has become the center of gravity in the Democratic Party. Even if she has no idea what she is talking about, all Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to do is keep being a Woman of Color and remember to always bear left. She will go far.

The New Face of the Democratic Party: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The double-digit primary win by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over establishment bigwig Joe Crowley, who was poised to become Speaker of the House, demonstrates how far over the cliff into abject radicalism the Democrat Party has gone.

Ocasio-Cortez, who less than a year ago was working as a bartender, wants to impeach Trump, abolish Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, socialize medicine, ban fossil fuels, and guarantee a $15/hour job and free college for everyone.

The result of imposing this agenda would be total ruin, featuring hundreds of millions pouring across the undefended border from the Third World to get their piece of pie during the few years it might take for the USA to collapse into bankruptcy.

Surely the Democrat apparatchiks who run the mainstream media object to nutcases taking over their party and consigning it to the lunatic fringe. Or maybe not.

The Washington Post enthusiastically embraces Ocasio-Cortez in the name of its official ideology, cultural Marxism. Lauding her as the “newest star of the Democratic Party,” WaPo crows:

Democratic voters are increasingly embracing diversity as a way to realize the change they seek in the country.

Given an option, Democratic voters have been picking women, racial minorities, and gay men and lesbians in races around the country at historic rates, often at the expense of the white male candidates who in past years typified the party’s offerings.

Crowley is a white man, so he had to go. Nonwhite race, nonmale gender, and a willingness to publicly confess to sexual perversion are the primary qualifications for holding office among Democrats.

As WaPo’s odious Dana Milbank approvingly notes,

A majority of House Democrats are either women, people of color or gay.

No wonder Joe Biden gloats that welfare and immigration policy are transforming America into a nonwhite country. The Democratic Party has become inseparably bound to its cultural Marxist tactics. Only by erasing the old America and replacing it with a different country populated by a different people with a different heritage can Democrats achieve and maintain power democratically.

Ocasio-Cortez — with her ditzy, economically infeasible objectives — personifies the type of people who will be running it.

Imagine Hannah McClintock in Charge

On Saturday, six Antifa moonbats behaved so outrageously that they managed to get themselves arrested even in sympathetic Portland, where Mayor/Police Commission Ted Wheeler tends to take their side. Once again, they were attacking a Patriot Prayer rally. Among the arrested was the charming Hannah McClintock. She’s the one with the purple hair, who forgot to wear black:

Antifa’s hebephrenic thuggery brings to mind an alarming piece by Selwyn Duke. It isn’t only Antifa that characterizes anyone to the right of Pol Pot as a Nazi. This form of demonization has become mainstream among liberals, which is ominous:

Projecting, many of them have convinced themselves we’re Nazis, fascists, bigots and un-American, evil haters who have undermined the rule of law, created a constitutional crisis and who represent a clear and present danger to the republic — we’re “deplorables.” Believing this, wouldn’t you suppose these were desperate times that called for desperate measures?

When the Democrats seize the presidency and both legislative chambers — which they eventually will — they’ll have a justification for behaving as tyrannically as they fancy we have. They’ll see it as simply responding in kind to a precedent we set. You’ll have Antifa in power.

One day soon, Hannah McClintock will have more than a sympathetic fellow-traveling mayor. She and others like her will have control.

They will use it to criminalize and eradicate all opposition. This is already beginning; examples include Silicon Valley giants moving to marginalize and repress nonleftist thought, and the Democrat Party running lunatic fringe candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Stacey Abrams, Andrew Gillum, and Beto O’Rourke.

Democrats: The Party of the Rich

They used to call the GOP the Party of the Rich, because it generally favors letting people keep their money. Posturing to this effect is still prevalent. The ballyhooed Future of the Democratic Party Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even pretends that she cannot afford housing in Washington. Tax relief is invariably denounced by Democrats with Marxist demagoguery about “tax cuts for the rich.” However, beneath the phony rhetoric, the party of George Soros, Tom Steyer, et al. is increasingly the real Party of the Rich. The month’s midterms made it obvious:

Before the 2018 midterms, the richest 15 percent of districts was fairly evenly split between Democrats (38) and Republicans (28), but no more. Sixteen of the thirty-seven seats (so far) flipped by the Democrats are in this strata. In the new 116th Congress, these wealthiest sixty-six districts will be represented by fifty-four Democrats and just ten Republicans (with two races yet to be decided). Starting January 3, 2019, twenty (twenty-one if Katie Porter’s lead in CA-45 holds) of the twenty-two richest districts will be represented by Democrats. This year the richest House districts in eleven (and possibly twelve) different states flipped from Republican to Democrat (CO-6, GA-6, IL-6, IA-3, KS-3, MI-11, MN-3, NJ-7, PA-5, SC-1, VA-10; UT-4 is still not called). Going further, in five states (six if Carolyn Bourdeaux wins GA-7) the top two richest districts flipped. These sixteen districts plus five others from the wealthiest 15 percent that weren’t tops in their states contributed well over half the Democrats’ new seats. Without them the House would never have turned blue.

The media tells us Republicans are losing suburbia. Actually, they are losing the rich, as crony capitalism and cultural degeneracy bring the Democratic Party ever more in line with their interests.

Not content to be represented by Democrats in their own districts, rich leftists try to buy elections in other states. This was especially obvious with the absurd yet alarming candidacy of Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who ran for Senate in Texas from a financial base in Hollywood.

The Democrat Party is an alliance of the extravagantly wealthy and the intergenerationally welfare-dependent. It attacks the middle class from either side in a pincer movement. Where Democrats have prevailed, the middle class shrinks away, as in California, where only the rich and the poor can afford to live.

Moonbat Rapper Elected in New York State

Yesterday did not turn out well for high-profile ultra-moonbats, even if some of their races were close enough to evoke horror in regular Americans. F-bombing Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke lost. Andrew Gillum lost. Stacey Abrams apparently lost, even if she is too racially entitled to admit it. Kyrsten Sinema is trailing, though the race has not been called. But those at the farthest fringes of the Left can take heart from results in increasingly radical New York State.

The punchline named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a parody of a ditzy clueless leftist, won in a blowout, as did Kirsten Gillibrand, who it is difficult to take much more seriously. So did the frighteningly fascistic Andrew Cuomo.

Then there is upstate, where it used to be possible to flee from the moonbattery, but where Antonio Delgado dislodged Republican John Faso in a district won by Trump. The correctly pigmented Delgado will represent the incorrectly pigmented Hudson Valley and Catskills.

Delgado, who once used his music career to influence others about social justice, attacked Faso’s support for repealing Obamacare.

Some may know Delgado as “AD The Voice,” a rapper given to projectile vomiting “politically provocative and racially charged lyrics”:

[H]e frequently hurls the N-word, slaps the two-party political system, rips the “dead” presidents as “white supremacists,” blasts capitalism, likens blacks to modern day slaves, calls poverty the “purest form of terrorism” and boasts of “having sex to a porno flick.”

Presumably, he laid off this stuff during the campaign. But these days, who knows?

Chelsea Clinton Credits Abortion for Economic Strength

If you like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economics views but think they are insufficiently moronic and insane, try those of Chelsea Clinton, who appears to believe that the cornerstone of our economy is abortion:

Chelsea Clinton expressed her extreme gratitude for abortion rights at the “Rise Up for Roe” event last Saturday, and credited abortion with saving the American economy.

The number of women in the workforce has exploded since the early 1970s, a fact Clinton credits to the widespread availability of abortion services. She speculated to an audience of abortion rights activists that, without the unfettered ability to eliminate their unborn children, women would have been relegated to their kitchens, chained to their home appliances, and oppressed under the thumb of their Patriarchal husbands.

What about the future, if women don’t have babies? Being a moonbat means never having to think about the future.

The wealth that might have been generated had those aborted babies been allowed to achieve adulthood is what you might call an opportunity cost. Moonbats don’t think about opportunity costs either, or they would not favor ever more taxes and regulations on everything but abortion.

Chelsea barks that killing babies also advances social justice and economic justice. Abortion is miracle cure. Abort enough babies and it will cure literally every social problem. How can a society have problems if it doesn’t exist?

How Sacha Baron Cohen Helps Out the Right

Sacha Baron Cohen isn’t likely to mean it this way, but by pranking people on the right into making public fools of themselves, he does countermoonbats a favor.

Living in an echo chamber, many liberals go ever farther out on a limb, not realizing that they have gotten carried away because all they hear is positive reinforcement. Next thing you know, they are calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “the future of the Democrat Party,” alienating anyone who is not insane.

Thanks to his gift for punking, Cohen helps prevent conservatives from making the same mistake.

In this segment from Cohen’s series Who Is America, he tricks gun advocates into promoting the insane notion of arming children as young as 3 years. You won’t know whether to burst out laughing or bury your face in your hands:

Moonbattery.com sponsor Ammo.com is understandably appalled — not with the punking itself, but with the public response on the part of Cohen’s victims, who include Philip Van Cleave of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America, radio host Joe Walsh, and former Senator Trent Lott:

Mr. Van Cleave responded on Facebook. Mr. Walsh’s went on CNN to respond.

(We couldn’t even find public responses from Mr. Pratt or Mr. Lott despite our best efforts, and from what we’ve read from other media sources they’re not publicly commenting whatsoever.)

As for Van Cleave and Walsh,

Both of them focus on the personal “us versus them” melodrama – how they were pranked, the fact that it was a setup, and that they were tricked into saying certain things. Doing so obscures the larger issue: Not a single one of them have publicly said “this is a bad idea” – the arming of toddlers in school – in their public responses.

So we will. It is a bad idea.

Thank you, Sasha Baron Cohen, for reminding us that we are never safe in our point of view. If we cross the line into absurdity, even if we have been deliberately led astray, we will pay the ultimate political price, which is not just to be laughed at, but to be marginalized.

Most gun rights advocates have a responsible approach to children and guns. For example:

[T]he NRA has knocked gun videos for kids out of the park with its Eddie Eagle program, which does not attempt to “train” kids to use guns or even give them a positive impression of guns – just to reinforce the idea that guns should not be played with and that kids should not touch them and immediately seek an adult if they do find a gun. Even some of the most ardent anti-gun people have given Eddie Eagle the support it rightly deserves.

That would be the same NRA that the media tells us is demonic. More on the Eddie Eagle program here.

Study Finds 2% of Sociology Professors Are Conservative

Here’s some surprising news: a full one in 50 sociology professors consider themselves conservative according to a recent study:

The study, “Sociology’s Sacred Victims and the Politics of Knowledge,” was led by Seton Hall University professors Mark Horowitz and Anthony Haynor, along with University of Central Oklahoma professor Kenneth Kickham.

Sociology professors chose one of five categories for themselves: radical, liberal, moderate, libertarian, or conservative.

[O]nly two percent of respondents said they were conservative, with another two percent identifying as libertarian.

Similarly, only 13 percent of professors said they were moderate, whereas 83 percent admitted to holding either liberal or radical beliefs.

The study also investigated whether the professors’ political orientation would influence how they handled controversial issues in the classroom. Reports Horowitz,

“On every controversy question, the pattern of responses by radicals, liberals, and moderates followed the predicted pattern.”

That is, damned straight they are preaching their politics in the classroom.

Sociology = social justice. The same is increasing true of other liberal arts fields that have limited applicability to the job market, like English.

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez et al. manage to impose “free” college for everyone, we will pay to have young people goof off taking easy liberal brainwashing classes until they are pushing 30, rather than joining the workforce and starting families.

Socialism Reduces Venezuelans to Eating Donkeys

Democrats don’t appear concerned about the results in Venezuela of imposing the policies championed by Bernie Sander, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, et al. Maybe this will change when they learn that socialism has reduced Venezuelans to eating donkeys:

A few years ago, there were so many donkeys, or burros, in the Venezuelan state of Falcón that they were a problem — herds everywhere, causing highway crashes and blocking airport runways.

But over the past three years, the herds have shrunk dramatically as thousands of burros have been slaughtered for their meat by Venezuelans suffering through a near-famine.

Due to its opulent resources, Venezuela was the wealthiest country in Latin America. Then came socialism.

Burros have been declared a protective species. So at least they have the government that caused the crisis on their side.

Burro meat was not liked because it’s tough and smells, even from far away, according to residents who have eaten it. But it has become a necessity for many people.

The idea of eating burro meat reportedly “was introduced by Cuban medical personnel.”

The leftist slogan “Eat the rich” could take on a new meaning in light of Venezuelans eating donkeys. The wealthy socialists of the Democratic Party could find themselves on the menu.

Opens Your Wallet for $12 Billion Crutch

Before the Libertarian Party succumbed completely to the kookery currently personified by Gary Johnson, it was led by Harry Browne, who sure got this right:

The government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say,

The crutch is of course paid for by others on a coercive basis.

A $12 billion crutch is currently in the news:

The Trump administration said Tuesday it would extend $12 billion in emergency aid to farmers amid signs the U.S. agricultural sector is beginning to feel the impact of President Donald Trump’s escalating trade disputes with major U.S. trading partners.

The trade war was set off by tariffs of the sort that deepened the Great Depression. At least the catastrophic Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act was imposed by Congress, as per the Constitution. Nowadays, our command and control economy is directed from the White House, thanks to a loophole that allows the Executive Branch to inflict tariffs on consumers in the name of “national security.” Inexcusably irresponsible, supine with cowardice, Congress does nothing to stop it.

Farmers are less than delighted with the largesse:

Farmers and the majority of farm-state lawmakers have previously appeared to be lukewarm on the idea of the government doling out aid to offset losses due to tariffs and drops in the market. Many have told POLITICO they would prefer the Trump administration to expand access to foreign markets, rather than start spats with trading partners that lead them to erect barriers on U.S. exports, restrict access and seek out other sources of supply.

“The best relief for the president’s trade war would be ending the trade war,” Brian Kuehl, executive director of the advocacy group Farmers for Free Trade, said in a statement Tuesday. He said farmers need trade policies that promote stability and allow them to plan for the future.

“This proposed action would only be a short-term attempt at masking the long-term damage caused by tariffs,” Kuehl added.

It could be worse. If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the future of the Democrat Party as the Chairman of the DNC assures us, we may be only an election or two away from the federal government collectivizing farms à la the USSR and communist China. In both cases, many millions starved to death as a consequence.

Eroding Democrat Support Among White Millennials

The #WalkAway movement is taking its toll, eroding Democrat support among an important powerbase: young people, who often do not have enough experience to have cast off the liberal brainwashing imposed through the media and schools.

Young people do not like President Donald Trump, but whites between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are equally likely to vote for a Republican as for a Democrat in the elections for Congress this November. …

This represented a nine-point shift away from Democrats since 2016.

Among young white men, the shift is even more dramatic:

In 2016, nearly half of them (48 percent) said they would vote for a Democrat, while only 36 percent said they would vote Republican. This year, 46 percent said they would choose a Republican, while only 37 percent said they would vote Democrat — a 21 percent shift in favor of the GOP.

The Democrat Party has gone all in with cultural Marxism. Only sickness or ignorance could explain white men who are not sexual deviants or Muslims supporting a party that hates them. The white male bashing is so over the top even among establishment Democrats that ignorance is difficult to maintain.

Consider the reaction at the Washington Post when prominent congresscritter Joe Crowley, who was under consideration to become Speaker of the House, was taken out in the primaries by a leftist kook bartender whom no reasonable person would trust in a position of authority. Dana Milbank et al. were delighted, because Crowley is a white male and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not. Nothing else matters to these malevolent screwballs.

A party that offers nothing but racism and sexism has limited appeal, especially when the liberal holy grail of nationwide minority status for Caucasians has not yet been achieved.

Sheffield’s Somali Mayor Magid Magid Bans US President While Squatting on a Table

Before long, we will have to choose between democracy and the massive demographic transformation that progressives have been imposing through immigration and welfare policies. Otherwise, we will find ourselves struggling to survive in the degenerating dystopia that is post-Apartheid South Africa — or in Sheffield, England, where the Mayor is now a Somali by the name of Magid Magid, who came to England via an Ethiopian refugee camp and who behaves exactly as you would expect of a savage ill-advisedly transplanted from a savage land and handed power over civilized people:

Trump is visiting the UK on July 13.

Incredibly, the tweet above is on the level, from the actual elected Mayor of Sheffield, England, a major city with a population over half a million.

The BBC reports:

Sheffield’s Lord Mayor has “banned” US President Donald Trump from visiting the city.

Magid Magid made the announcement while chairing a Sheffield City Council meeting and donning a sombrero “in solidarity” with Mexico.

The Green Party councillor tweeted Mr Trump was a “wasteman” and “henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield”.

Here’s why he banned Donald Trump, despite not having the authority to do so:

In a tweet, the mayor highlighted his opposition to Trump’s policies he objects strongly to, including “[Trump’s] ridiculous Muslim ban, withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, moving a US Embassy to Jerusalem, enforcing the imprisonment of children at borders and defending white supremacists“.

Magid Magid’s juvenile political views will be familiar to anyone who has been exposed to the “mainstream” media recently.
