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.

The moonbats who voted for Mad Alexandria in the primaries love the promised freebies. As for how to finance them and how AO-C’s policies are working out in Venezuela, they are as clueless as you would expect:

Captain Kirk vs Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

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: The Future of the Democratic Party

Thomas Perez is not just some random moonbat. He is Chairmoonbat of the Democratic National Committee. When he says the clueless and visibly insane ultra-leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the future of the Democratic Party, we could be in for a wild ride:

On the grounds that she is a Woman of Color and has dialed herself to 11 on the left, the liberal establishment bastion WaPo concurs that AO-C is the future of the Democratic Party.

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.

Alexia Ocasio-Cortez Announces End of the World

This is alarming. Alexia Ocasio-Cortez, Future of the Democrat Party, says the end of the world is fast upon us if the government does not spend as much money optimizing the climate as it did in World War II:

“I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change. [Your] biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are [we] going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”

This is alarming not because any sane person believes the world is about to end, that the constantly fluctuating climate is a problem on the scale of WWII, or even that the federal bureaucracy can control the climate. What is alarming is that people who have power over us may actually believe this hysterical claptrap.

You think she doesn’t really mean it? That no one could get elected to Congress who is so clueless as to believe that the world will soon end if the government doesn’t blow $trillions tilting at windmills? That she just got a little carried away with her demagoguery in the heat of the moment? Guess again:

Global warming is not just an ideology; it is a cult — at the Heaven’s Gate level of lunacy.

People who honestly believe in the impending end of the world are capable of anything. That could be why the radicals steering the course of the Democrat Party don’t care how much their pipe dreams cost.

AOC’s Greatest Hits

The career of hard left Justice Democrats puppet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is still young, but already she has produced enough moonbattery for Mr Reagan to release Volume I of her greatest hits:

This is the woman anointed by both the political and propaganda wings of the liberal establishment as its future. Whether we should feel relieved or terrified depends on how unthinkably awful Democrats can get and still win elections. This in turn depends on the success of their efforts to demographically transform the country, and to reduce future generations to idiots through their control of education.

New Way Forward — Off the Deep End

The open borders radicals who dominate the Democrat Party are not backing down. On the contrary, they are doubling down. The New Way Forward Act (aka HR 5383) takes immigration extremism to a level of lunacy comparable to the apocalyptic Green New Deal.

Tucker Carlson sounds the alarm:

The legislation is sponsored by 44 House Democrats, including Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. …

The bill would entirely remake our immigration system, with the explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move here, and settle here permanently, with impunity. …

Under current U.S. law, legal U.S. immigrants can be deported if they commit an “aggravated felony” or a “crime of moral turpitude” – that is, a vile, depraved act, like molesting a child. Under the New Way Forward Act, “crimes of moral turpitude” are eliminated entirely as a justification for deportation.

Moral turpitude has a loyal friend in the Democrat Party.

No crime, no matter how serious, will require deportation if this bill becomes law — as it might, if November turns out well enough for Democrats.

As if the bill were written by Al Qaeda, falsifying a passport is actually made immune from deportation.

Immigration judges are given the power to nullify deportation orders. Many of these judges are activist liberals.

Illegal entry into the USA is retroactively decriminalized.

According to a document promoting the bill, criminalizing illegal entry into America is “white supremacist.”

Enforcement of immigration law would be all but abolished:

To detain illegal immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would have to prove in court that the illegal immigrants are dangerous or a flight risk. But of course, ICE wouldn’t be allowed to use a detainee’s prior criminal behavior as proof he or she is dangerous. That’s banned.

ICE would have to overcome even more hurdles if the detainee claims to be gay or transgender, under 21, or can’t speak English and an interpreter isn’t immediately available.

LGBT people are special. It would be homophobic to expect them to obey the law. So if you are a criminal alien who wants to live in America, just say that you have perverse sexual inclinations and the treatment you receive will be extra obsequious.

The bill gets even crazier. Previously deported foreign criminals are granted a “right to come home.”

The bill orders the government to create a “pathway for those previously deported to apply to return to their homes and families in the United States,” as long as they would have been eligible to stay under the new law.

In the book Fahrenheit 451, the fire department starts fires instead of putting them out. America under liberal rule will offer something similar. Instead of defending the border, the Department of Homeland Security will be responsible for transporting previously deported foreign felons back into our communities at our expense.

From 2002 to 2018, 480,000 people were deported for illegal entry or reentry into America. And under this bill, you’d have to buy them all a plane ticket to come back. The tickets alone would cost about a billion dollars, and that’s before Democrats make you start paying for these criminals’ free health care, too. Which they plan to.

The radicals currently charting the course for the Democrat Party are fundamentally hostile to America and its people.

Once they have sufficient power, they will attempt to impose their agenda. At that point, either there will be another civil war, or America will be irrevocably destroyed by a fusillade of malevolent legislation like HR 5383.

The complicit “mainstream” media has ignored this shocking bill, lest resistance to it become organized. One America reports on it, while the MSM pretends not to notice:

Looks like the Officer Tatum is a white supremacist; he doesn’t like the New Way Forward either:

Students Recite Their Lesson: White Men Are Bad

Considering that conspicuously economically ignorant Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez boasts of having a degree in economics from pricey Boston University (tuition = $54,720), you may wonder what if anything is taught on campus these days. The one lesson that is imparted with high effectiveness is that white men are inherently bad, because it is racist and sexist to be a white man.

See how readily American University students recite the knowledge that has been installed. Here it is put in the context of frivolous entertainment so that students will find it relevant and be engaged:

Talent has nothing to do with it; not being a white male is what matters. Few students fail to give the correct answer.

Imagine this same video, except with the interviewer asking if it is a problem that there are too many blacks in the NBA.

AOC Versus Rush

You don’t have to be a fan of Rush Limbaugh to at least admit that he has overwhelmingly dominated a competitive field for decades and has had a major impact on American society. But you may have to be less clueless than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

She is enraged that he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as if he were less worthy of it than the 123 people Obama bestowed it upon, including obnoxious moonbat Robert De Niro, left-wing pop stars James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, and Barbra Streisand, progressive oligarch Warren Buffett, degenerate intern-molesting corruptocrat Bill Clinton, bumbling dope Madeleine Albright, and even Oprah Winfrey.

Not long ago, Tom Perez called AOC the Future of the Democrat Party. Already, she is its present. She arguably has a firmer grip on the party’s steering wheel than its ostensible most powerful member, Nancy Pelosi, who was forced into the doomed impeachment fiasco by radicals like AOC. Yet when she takes on El Rushbo, the word that comes to mind is “ankle-biter.”

Rush hardly needs to be defended from a cognitively disabled Marxist. But Dave Morrison does such a good job, let’s watch him anyway:

Rush is no good because he is a “racist.” That’s her argument, and it’s the best you could expect.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden milked the Democrat debate audience for applause last night by proclaiming that the Presidential Medal of Freedom should have gone to Alexander Vindman instead for his contribution to the shameful impeachment spectacle. I doubt AOC would have a problem with that.

AOC Reveals That You Can’t Pull Yourself Up by Your Bootstraps

You didn’t build that,” Barack Obama told those who work hard and succeed. Neither does the Future of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, endorse the concept of people achieving by their own merits. Some who haven’t had everything handed to them allegedly take advantage of America’s economic freedom and pull themselves up by their own bootstraps; however, AOC sagely observes that this is physically impossible:

She speaks with the authority of someone who spent a half hour attempting to pull herself up by her own shoes just to prove to herself that only socialism generates wealth. It is a relief to learn that AOC did not really strangle herself with her own shoelaces, despite the report at the Babylon Bee.

AOC: We Want Power

Despite the eat-the-rich rhetoric that characterizes their party, many prominent Democrats are rich, including billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer and millionaires like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. It might seem hypocritical that they want to confiscate money from those who have less than they do on the grounds that we have too much. But for Democrats, it isn’t really about money. Wealth is just a means to an end. Everything is a means to an end with leftists, and that end is always the same: power.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Future of the Democrat Party and Acting Speaker of the House, wants to go straight for the prize:

“If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You know, like, not what do I do with all of this money that I have created with this unjust system…”

Bezos is a moonbat who spent millions attacking the sanctity of marriage. No matter. He has wealth and therefore power; AOC is on him like a fox on a plump hen.

“It means that you own oil supplies, it means that you control textiles, it means that you have a massive labor force under your control and to be ethical if you’re a billionaire today the thing that you need to do is give up control and power,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “So, I don’t want your money, as much as we want your power.”

Ceding power to government thugs is “ethical,” according to AOC. That’s why it always leads to such benevolent results.

This malevolent, power-mad, mentally defective communist personifies where the Democrat Party has been heading:

When people like AOC achieve enough of the power they are after, they will line you up between a trench and a machine gun for having worked hard to provide for your family, just as their predecessors did in Russia and China after spewing virtually identical rhetoric. Vote as if your life depended on it, because it does.

Portland to Impose Climate Justice Tax

Portland has gone so far off the rails, it plans to impose a scaled-down local version of AOC’s demented Green New Deal. This is unlikely to have any impact whatsoever on the supposedly problematic climate, but it will succeed at its actual objective: confiscating and redistributing money on a racial basis.

A sympathetic take from Willamette Week:

The Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund, or PCEF, will raise as much as $60 million a year from a new tax on big retailers. The money is supposed to supply clean, efficient energy and jobs to people the city has long slighted.

The jobs and energy are not for everyone, but only for the politically preferred — or “underserved,” to use a favorite progressive euphemism.

The overarching goals: to provide members of underserved communities with valuable skills while insulating, caulking and tweaking inefficient heating and cooling systems and installing rooftop solar panels at the homes of low-income Portlanders.

As a rule, hated whites do not get to be “underserved.”

At its core, the concept transfers wealth from big corporations such as Walmart to low-income Portlanders of color.

It appears that only evil rich white people shop at Walmart, which will inevitably pass the higher cost of doing business in Portland along to its customers.

It’s a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It’s also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits—in America’s whitest big city.

The racial animus driving envirosocialism is becoming explicit. The PCEF is largely the work of Jo Ann Hardesty, a hardcore moonbat known for her diseased bag lady appearance and her theatrical hatred of Caucasians (see here and here).

Hardesty, the first black woman to serve on the City Council and the self-described “mother of the Portland Clean Energy Fund,” promises she won’t let it fail.

If it does fail, there will be precedent:

Clean Energy Works snagged a $20 million federal stimulus grant in 2010 and became an independent nonprofit whose mission was to deploy minority contractors to make 100,000 homes energy efficient.

Obama’s “stimulus” looting spree wasted massive amounts of money on green energy boondoggles. The economic damage continues to unfold.

The program aimed to benefit underserved communities—just as the new tax does. …

The Energy Trust of Oregon, a nonprofit funded by utility ratepayers, found the program’s costs “significantly” higher than those of other contractors doing similar work without public funding.

Government programs tend to work that way.

By 2014, Clean Energy Works had spent the $20 million in federal stimulus money it received four years earlier. It then secured an additional $10 million state grant to keep going.

Like all socialist endeavors, Clean Energy Works soon ran out of other people’s money.

Although Clean Energy Works hoped to weatherize 100,000 homes, it only completed about 5,000.

The envirocommies say this time will be different, because they have learned a lesson:

The lesson from Clean Energy Works’ experience: Good intentions and an extensive background in the field were not enough to create an operation that could finance itself. What such a project needed instead was a spigot of money that couldn’t be turned off…

Who ever heard of a tax going away? “Big retailers” will pay a 1% surcharge on Portland sales to finance “climate justice” until the end of time. Even if every penny is wasted, there will always be more — at least in theory.
