Staying true to the Democratic way, House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped into America during an appearance and talked about how terrible she thinks this country is, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Ocasio-Cortez on America
The newly elected House Democrat shared her thoughts on “where we are as Americans” during a sit-down with South By Southwest Conference & Festivals (SXSW). In essence, Ocasio-Cortez maintained that socialist rhetoric and policies are not “radical” and claimed that America is slowly eroding.
In her own words:
“What’s really hard for people to sometimes see is that we are on this path of a slow erosion, and a slow slow slow just like — move away from what we’ve always been. You won’t even realize that you’ve drifted a hundred miles. So when someone’s talking about ‘our core,’ they’re like, ‘oh, this is radical,’ but it isn’t radical. This is what we’ve always been. I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. And this idea of like, ten percent better than garbage, it shouldn’t be what we settle for.”
The Truth about Ocasio-Cortez’s Remarks
The fact of the matter is that what Ocasio-Cortez and other far-left Democrats are calling for is radical. Democrats don’t like to hear this, but facts are facts. The Green New Deal, the end of private healthcare, endorsing the provision of economic aid to people who are “unwilling” to work are all things which the left-wing has championed over the past few months. They’ve become increasingly more extreme to the point of alienating more moderate-leaning Democrats and liberals.
If Ocasio-Cortez truly believes that America is “garbage,” then there is no place for her in Congress. Granted, there is always room for improvement, but denouncing this country as trash is disgraceful, yet fitting for a member of the Democrat Party.
