‘To me, capitalism is irredeemable’ and other dim-witted things AOC said this weekend

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps getting stronger by saying the abjectly stupid crap that Democrats actually believe but have been too shy to admit in public.

For instance, this idiocy about capitalism:

“Capitalism is an ideology of capital — the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit,” she said during an interview at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, according to Bloomberg News.

“To me, capitalism is irredeemable,” she added, arguing that capitalism’s goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.

The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, added during her interview that “we should be scared.”

“Just as there’s all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government,” she said.

Shockingly and unbelievably stupid. Even some in the Democratic party are pushing back against this socialist extremism now because it’s gotten so bad. AND she has a degree in economics!!! I mean, look there are plenty of things to criticize about what form of capitalism is the best, but to just idiotically opine that it is “unredeemable” is… deplorable.

She was at SXSW and got the endorsement of fake climate scientist guy Bill Nye, because nothing says credibility like a wannabe-scientist kid entertainer:



Maybe he helped her recreate the terrible explosion/tragedy of the Challenger launch?

AND she said that people should be happy when robots replace them because the government will take care of them because there are now “infinite” resources.

Incredible.

She is a complete idiot. What is frightening is that so many think she’s brilliant. Countless morons swallow and regurgitate her inane platitudes because our society brain-washes them with left-wing propaganda. It’s gonna be rough sailing for the country ahead.

Well now that I’ve depressed myself I’m gonna go get a stiff drink. Hope you all had a great weekend!!

And have an open thread, with this comment fodder:

We can address income inequality. We can address climate change, if we get together and get to work

You know the irony there? “Getting things to work” is a product of capitalism. Because there’s profit to be made in being an innovator.

Take away that incentive, and there’s no reason to really do anything.

I don’t have a degree in Econ but I took a few classes and one of the first things they teach you is resources are LIMITED, i.e. FINITE. When she states with a straight face that they are infinite, you know you’re dealing with someone who is either woefully ignorant or frighteningly sinister.

Thank you for posting that very interesting video. I have been hearing/reading about the fake actress AOC this morning, and saw a shorter video where Alexandra Rojas, the current Justice Democrats Executive Director talked literally about putting out calls for nominees for their Congressional project, and got over 10,000 responses. AOC’s brother Gabe Ocasio Cortez, a real estate agent in NY for Grand Lux Realty nominated his sister Alexandria. In that short video AOC talks about her her nrother telling her that he nominated her, and she was working in a restaurant at the time, and never believed she would win the casting call. I remember reading back when AOC’s name first started appearing, that she had a complete physical makeover, she was provided with a new and expensive wardrobe, and she was as the guy in the video above said, she became an overnight sensation.

I’ve always thought of Capitalism as a natural, organic grassroots phenomenon that simply springs from the human soul, originating in barter economies and evolving to what we see today. Socialism, on the other hand, is a wholly created ideology, a manufactured phenomenon that counter-intuitively punishes success and rewards indolence. Since we’re all about “organic” these days (nyuk nyuk nyuk), I’m sticking with Capitalism.

On a broader note, the push to make America a socialist nation will come to blows. The ideologies of the Left are the stuff that wars are fought over, and this one — Capitalism vs. Socialism — would be worth having.

She’s so woefully ignorant that it hurts. Capitalism is not about the accumulation of capital, it’s about CHOICE. I can choose from among different competing firms for my hard earned dollars. Businesses have to compete to get my bucks. I can choose to start a business or work for another’s. I can choose to go to college or not. I can choose to go into any profession that I am qualified for.

This woman needed much more time listening to Milton Friedman than to SJW tripe.

You can have equality, or freedom, but you cannot have both. If you are totally equal, you will not be free. If you are totally free, then you will not be equal, except that you are equally free. Every act by a legislature either guarantees a freedom, or takes a freedom away. Period.

Um, you don’t need to change your brake fluid. You need to change your oil, flush your tranny (a mechanical device for transmitting energy from one system to another) and coolant system and top off you washer fluid. You bleed your brakes/clutch fluid to expel air if the system has been worked on…..you don’t change it unless your vehicle is a race car.

BTW, Girlscouts selling cookies at exorbitant prices is very capitalistic. The cookies themselves are only worth a few cents in ingredients and baking time yet they sell them for $5 a box. Why? because that is what the evil capitalist market for Girlscout cookies supports. If people did not buy at $5 then the price would be forced to come down. Simple capitalism.

It is impossible to criticize, much less refute, the system of capitalism without first misunderstanding the system. Capitalism is, simply put, each individual providing a good or service to others at an agreed upon price, and then disposing of the fruits of that labor as each individual sees fit. The second, the instant government intervenes in that two-part transaction, wealth generation and wealth disposition, the system ceases to be capitalist and becomes other: Socialism, mercantilism, cronyism, communism, fascism. You cannot have capitalism without private property; without the private ownership and control of production; without the competitive issuance of currency; without private banking and interest rates; and without government intervention in business and economics. This idiot, AOC, complains about “capitalism” in the US, but we don’t have capitalism. We have a crony socialist federal government that regulates every aspect of human life.

Karl Marx is like so 19th century. Like can’t a “progressive” do better than that. If this is the stuff BU teaches these days, run the other direction as fast as you can.

“In fact Socialism is not in the least what it pretends to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build; it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership of the means of production has created. Since a socialist order of society cannot exist, unless it be as a fragment of Socialism within an economic order resting otherwise in private property, each step leading towards Socialism must exhaust itself in the destruction of what already exists.”

They don’t even promise to fix them. They just state, “We have to have X,” where X is the opposite of things people actually do to make everything fair.

The only way to deal with them is to shove them out of the way, every time they get in the way (which will never stop happening until evil is eradicated).

On the whole I’ve given up on Republicans.

Me too, but since they are the only thing standing between us and liberal lunacy I still vote for them.

You should have some pretty conservative legislators in your area, at least local.

Of course, but I’m mostly referring to the federal government.

Speaking of which I just saw a Republican on Fox say that Republicans are on board with the climate change issue. They recognize that it’s real and that we’re going to have to change things. A bunch of crackpot idiots.

I don’t believe most Democrat voters ascribe to her math either. A lot of them may be pretty disgusted with her already….I hope.

I come across these young people in construction, they’re lazy, have poor work ethics and think they’re irreplaceable, so I can see why they vote democrat. the only thing most are too lazy to go vote

Illegals are going into construction. I hear that the drywall business in Chicago has been pretty much taken over by Poles.

I’m in drywall in Pittsburgh area and I would say easy 95% is Mexican. I’m one of few Americans. What other Americans we have aren’t worth a crap I’m embarrassed with our work ethics

@trapper That sucks. There are a lot of truck drivers who can’t speak English, which is (supposedly) required to obtain a CDL. I was wondering how they get around and a driver told me that the GPS is in their language.

From my experience of being around it, I’ve always said nothing is broken, it’s laws not being enforced. These Mexicans aren’t scared anymore, it’s part of their business if they get deported which is a rarity, within a few months they’re back. We have all the laws we need but the politicians have made a mockery of our laws.
Also trump is hitting the nail on the head, trade schools. Because of Mexicans , people aren’t going into drywall so if we removed all the Mexicans, there would be a big shortage for hangers and finishers, which is good for me, shortages means higher wages for me! Lol

Yeah, I go to factories and warehouses all over and in a lot of places, only the dock workers and managers speak English. It’s much more pervasive than people realize.

Yep it is but the big lie is they’re a lot cheaper. Not true anymore in drywall, they’re .02 a sq ft cheaper than me. Their is one legal Mexican that has 60 under him, he has built a beautiful house down Mexico and once he makes enough, he’s retiring. He’s in his mid thirties ! Living the dream

Sorry to hear that. Your body will shut down when it needs to. Otherwise, you’ll go stark, raving mad! I was up for a week once going through withdrawals and I thought that I was going to become psychotic. It’s sort of funny/ not funny.

Yes! There’s an insomnia psychosis that kicks in, and I swear I’ve been to the brink many times. Not pleasant at all. I blame it on my career: had to work a shift, go home, then be on call from 10pm to 7am a couple nites a week. You’d just get to sleep, then the phone would ring. My body never knew when it was supposed to be sleeping and when it was supposed to be awake and alert. Pretty messed up silly

Yes, for a while I worked a 40 hour day job and every other weekend worked 3rd shift. That kind of odd schedule wears on a person.
