The following article, FLASHBACK: Ocasio-Cortez Suggests America Is ‘Garbage’ — Admits Her Ideas Are Radical, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Conservatives have a major reason not to be in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s corner.
She’s a Democrat Socialist. That much is clear.
And yet, even many Dems are tired of AOC at this point. Heck, the left may even try to find a primary challenger to Ocasio-Cortez in 2020.
During a recent sit-down, AOC recognized that her ideas were radical.
She then goes on to suggest that America is “garbage” and not in a good place.
From Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is “garbage” and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a “racist” vision of the country that “pitted” white working class people against minorities in order “to screw over all working-class Americans.”
AOC: “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. 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.”
AOC: “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. It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.”

Can somebody inform AOC that minority unemployment is at an all-time low and that the economy is thriving in a post-Obama America?
Somebody needs to sit this woman down and have a serious talk, because at this point enough is enough.
Here’s the full clip, if interested:

About that potential primary for AOC.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has infuriated colleagues by aligning with a progressive outside group that’s threatening to primary entrenched Democrats. Now some of those lawmakers are turning the tables on her and are discussing recruiting a primary challenger to run against the social media sensation.
At least one House Democrat has been privately urging members of the New York delegation to recruit a local politician from the Bronx or Queens to challenge Ocasio-Cortez.
“What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill. “You’ve got numerous council people and state legislators who’ve been waiting 20 years for that seat. I’m sure they can find numerous people who want that seat in that district.”
The problem now, though, is that AOC has the name recognition.
Even more unfortunate is how popular Democrat socialism has become in America.
