Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is knowing for saying a lot of dumb things. Whether it’s not understanding how a garbage disposal works or the fact that the government has three branches, there’s no shortage of stupid when it comes to this woman.
However, her latest claim, which is that her snowflake, faux outrage obsessed generation is the best ever, has to be the biggest blunder to ever slip her lips.
And former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wasn’t about to let her get away with it.
“I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets. How about that?” she claimed.Trending:
“Like, previous generations have just assumed that government’s got it,” she explained.
Walker did not agree.Advertisement - story continues below
“How many members of the true Greatest Generation fought and died so @AOC and her generation could have the peace & prosperity they enjoy today?” he asked rhetorically in a tweet Thursday.

Walker wasn’t finished:
“No generation in human history has ever experienced a world with more prosperity, more freedom, more leisure time, more access to information, higher literacy rates, better life expectancy, lower child mortality, less poverty, less disease, less hunger, and less violent crime that the current generation.”
“@AOC, you thank the Greatest Generation who won World War II for the peace and prosperity you enjoy today.”
He’s right on the money.
So far AOC’s generation has managed to erase parts of our important history, caused riots, looting, and politically charged violence, and more.
Let’s just say that Millennials are far from the saviors she claims they are. At the end of the day they’re flawed. So were other generations, but they could at least admit it, which is more than we can say for this batch of folks.
