It’s like something out of science fiction. Within three months of being elected to Congress, a 29-year old person whose only real life experience is as a bartender for a Mexican restaurant becomes the face and essentially the leader of the once great Democrat Party.
With her every silly utterance treated as major news by a fawning media, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as “AOC,” would be coronated right now as the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee were she age-eligible to run for the highest office.
What’s depressing about her “Green New Deal,” is not just that it would result in a Stone Age economy that would make us envy Venezuela, but that supposedly intelligent Democrats with presidential aspirations have signed on to it. Surely Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and even the overwrought Cory Booker et al know in their heart of hearts that AOC’s plan is madness.
Surely they don’t really believe that in 10 years airplanes and cars will have vanished and every building and structure in the country demolished and replaced. But they are so fearful of her popularity that they, and some 70 others who are on board with the insanity, don’t dare incur her wrath by declaring that the empress has no clothes. The Democrats are wearing a collective bracelet bearing the initials “W.W.A.D.” — “What would Alexandria do?”
AOC’s ignorance is a perfect example of what our educational system now produces, and the genuflecting she receives shows how devoid of perspective and fairness the news media has become. What’s terrifying to those of us who don’t want to live in a land of totalitarian socialism is that, while she is a nitwit, there are millions of other nitwits from the same leftist educational system who will vote for her when she runs for president in 2024. Actor James Woods called her the most dangerous person in America who we ignore at our peril. I concur.
Once President Trump leaves the scene we’re going to need more Republicans with backbone than we have now to prevent America from becoming a socialist hellhole.
