FLASHBACK: Ocasio-Cortez Wants People Happy About ‘Being Automated Out of Work’

Another gem from AOC!

John Salvatore

Published

There are some things you just can’t make up.

Most of those things tend to come from the mouth of Democrat Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

For example…

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Saturday that people should be “excited” about “being automated out of work” and suggested that she supports taxing corporations at 90%.

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festival in Austin, Texas — where she also said America was in a state of “garbage” and suggested that former President Ronald Reagan was a racist.

WATCH:

S. Mitra Kalita has a blue checkmark on Twitter and works in the programming department for CNN.

She sent the following tweet:

Seeing the words “prepared” and “authentic” to describe @AOC, often with surprise that she’s made it so far. This is the superpower of women of color: to prep more than everyone else, read the room, yet stay true to yourself because the alternative ain’t worth it. Just guessing.

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded, essentially playing the victim card:

People think it’s a joke when folks say we have to work 2x as hard for the same seat.

Whether you believe it or not, the upside is when we do get here,we’re used to being held to a diff bar. To being doubted. To getting new hoops thrown @ us last min.

So we know how to perform.

Twiter took notice, and things quickly backfired on Alexandria:

https://twitter.com/FreedomForceUSA/status/1101135327329161217?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1101135327329161217&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthefederalistpapers.org%2Fopinion%2Faoc-posts-ridiculous-twitter-message-women-color-gets-instant-reality-check

Even if you’re a Congressman who is only clapping because you don’t want to get trashed by left or right-leaning outlets, you should still be able to agree that bipartisanship is a good thing.

By the look on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s face after President Trump called for unity between Republicans and Democrats at the State of the Union address, she’s not in favor.

Kinda weird.

As noted by Ryan Saavedra on Twitter:

Trump calls for unity between both parties: “But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and common good”

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the only people to not stand and clap

WATCH:

More from AOC:

Millennials need to come together to apologize for Ocasio-Cortez. The Congresswoman knows so, so, so little of which she speaks.

It would be funny if it wasn’t so aggravating.

During a recent event, AOC said the world will stop spinning in 12 years if drastic action isn’t taken on climate change.

Those words actually came from her lips.

WATCH:

After years of searching, there is still zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

That’s not exactly a surprise to Trump supporters.

Save conservative media!

Democrat Rep. Watches Golf, Refuses to Take Impeachment Hearing Seriously [Video]

Bush league at its finest…

If you have ever heard of Congressman Cedric Richmond, raise your hand. Both of you? Great. Now, for the rest of us who have never heard his name, Richmond is a guy who doesn’t take impeachment seriously. Go figure, right? We all know most other Dems are supporting impeachment simply to support impeachment, but that doesn’t make it right. Cedric took things to a whole other level on Thursday. From Daily Wire: Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond (LA) was accused of watching the President’s Cup golf tournament during the Democrats’ impeaching hearing on Thursday night in the House Judiciary Committee. Continued: The incident, noticed by GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest, appears to show Richmond not taking the Democrats’ impeachment hearing seriously as he was clearly focused on the golf tournament.

Rashida Tlaib makes Jeff Daniels’ character in Dumb & Dumber look like a Rhodes Scholar. The Michigan Democrat constantly finds herself on the wrong side of all issues, just like every member of her party. It’s sad, but they also do it to themselves. You have to forgive people like Rashida because she knows not what she does. She thinks she’s doing the right thing but was obviously taught wrong. What can you do? She is what she is. Check out the latest absolute NONSENSE from the Bernie Sanders-supporting Congresswoman. Here’s her tweet about “white supremacy”… But there’s a GIGANTIC problem.
