On Saturday at the South by Southwest event in Austin, Texas, Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a lot to say.
Along with calling Ronald Reagan “racist” and calling America “garbage,” Ocasio-Cortez stated that capitalism “cannot be redeemed.”
Check out what Business Insider reported:
Ocasio-Cortez defended her self-described socialist values, including the idea that the corporations are inching in on government. According to Ocasio-Cortez, “corporations have already taken over our government.”
Capitalism, she said, is an “irredeemable” system” because of the “concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit,” according to Bloomberg.
She also spoke about the unequal spread of wealth in America.
Capitalism is what helped created the greatest country in the history of the world.
Capitalism is the reason why the United States is the most successful and innovative country in the world.
Capitalism is what inspires creativity and motivation.
Capitalism is why the poverty rate in America is so low.
Capitalism is why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can tweet on her iPhone while she eats at a 5 star restaurant in her $1000 dress.
Socialism on the other hand, is the reason why countries suffer. Socialism gives the government abusive powers. Socialism is what creates corruption within the government.
Socialism is why countries like Venezuela are in financial ruin and why Venezuelans are forced to eat their pets.
Why didn’t Ocasio-Cortez mention Venezuela to prove how successful socialism is? It’s alarming how Ocasio-Cortez is so vocal about how evil capitalism is but stays completely silent about the crisis that is unfolding in Venezuela.
This outlandish statement wasn’t the only think she said during the event that raised eyebrows. She also took the opportunity to call former President Ronald Reagan “racist.”
“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”
“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.’”
“RACISM RACISM RACISM. EVERYTHING IS RACIST.” This radical agenda by the Left continues and it doesn’t seem that it will end any time soon.
Ocasio-Cortez is a danger to our country and the fact that she has such a large platform and so much power is extremely worrisome.
If she had her way capitalism would be gone, our country would go bankrupt with her Green New Deal, history would be erased and life as we know it would be ruined forever.
