Ocasio-Cortez’s Socialist Fan Club Asked How They’ll Pay For “Free Stuff” Their Answers Will Make You Face Palm

Published

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic Party and she just so happens to be an outspoken believer in “democratic socialism,” which means she’s a big fan of political mythology because this little Frankenstein’s monster doesn’t actually exist.

One of the big tenets of socialism is providing many of the basic needs people have for “free” like health care, housing, and so on. However, anyone with even a microcosm of common sense knows that there’s no such thing as something for nothing. Someone, somewhere, pays for everything.

This is precisely the point Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips made when he hit the streets in Astoria, New York, the home town of Ocasio-Cortez, to speak with her supporters about who is going to fund the free stuff. Their answers are the stuff nightmares are made of.

Ocasio-Cortez — who just received the Democratic nomination in New York’s 14th Congressional District — believes government should completely fund things like housing, college, and health care for everybody. And her fans on the street were down with all of that as well, without any hedging or hesitation.

But when asked who would pay for all that “free” stuff, some weren’t so confident — and others didn’t seem to understand or care about the implications of socialist policies.

“Some of it should come from taxes, but the government should pay for it,” one person replied.

“But the government is funded by taxes,” Phillips pointed out.

“Yeah,” she replied.

One guy seemed unconcerned about how socialism would be funded: “I don’t know where the money would come from, but they can figure it out.”

Yet another guy was convinced that “with a good idea and a good reason to spend their tax money, people wouldn’t actually mind paying more taxes.”

While you’re no doubt physically ill with the astounding amount of stupidity you’ve just been exposed to, the interview didn’t stop there. Not even close. It ended with this precious gem. Feel free to grab a barf bag first before reading on further.

“I’m liberal,” the interviewee said. “I don’t know exactly, like, where I stand, but I know, like, Democratic socialism is better than conservative … it’s the better option.”

When Phillips asked in what way it’s better, she replied, “Um, when I think of it, I just think of, like, more open-minded people, people that aren’t, like, as economically conserved.”

Say what now?

These people are the future of our country, folks. One day, these same individuals will be elected officials, business owners, and in other assorted positions of power, terrorizing the country with their utter lack of common sense, allowing the government to swell to absurd proportions.

If there was ever a time to worry about the future of America, today is that day.

Here’s the full clip.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
