Time and time again, Americans have witnessed conflicts between the statements which Democrats make versus the actions which they partake in. The left talks about “going high” when the opposition goes low, but then they attack conservatives in the streets. Progressives preach about tolerance, but in the next breath, they demonize anyone who dares to stray from their ideological dogma. It truly is the ultimate paradox.
Of course, front and center of the latest occurrence is House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, the congresswoman alleged that the United States is on a path to “fascism,” according to Breitbart News. Predictably, Ocasio-Cortez faulted the Trump administration for this supposed descent into extremism.
Reviewing AOC’s Claims of Fascism
The congresswoman spoke with Yahoo! News and provided her hot take on the current state of the nation. If you let AOC tell it, everything is the president’s fault and the government is taking a more “authoritarian” turn for the worst.
In her own words:
“Are we headed to fascism? Yes. I don’t think there’s a question. If you actually take the time to study, and to look at the steps, and to see how government transforms under authoritarian regimes, and look at the political decisions and patterns of this president, the answer is yes.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s declarations come after her visit to the United States Southern border. She later claimed that migrants were forced to drink water out of toilets; since making these claims, multiple individuals, including National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd, have stated that the congresswoman is lying about what she witnessed at detention centers.
The Irony of Crying Fascism
Once again, the pattern of feigned moral outrage continues to come from the left. The truth of the matter is that no matter how much AOC cries and screams about fascism, she doesn’t truly believe what she’s saying. If the congresswoman truly believed that the United States government was descending into fascism, she wouldn’t be advocating for more government intervention.
Think about it: would a logic human being who truly opposes fascism want the government to be involved in people’s healthcare, earning capabilities, and access to education? Of course not, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez LOVES big government. She supports a Green New Deal; she wants to boot countless Americans off their private healthcare for the sake of Medicare-For-All and raise taxes to pay for reparations, “free” college, etc.
These are not the attitudes of a politician with serious concerns about fascism in the United States.
