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?
.@girlscouts is how I first practiced how to change brake fluid, start a fire, practice self-defense, recreate the NASA Challenger mission, and v importantly: learn to teach myself new skills + navigate ambiguity. 🚀
There’s a reason a large of Congresswomen are former scouts! https://t.co/N21KNVN5ZV

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.
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:
Crazy story that just happened in SC:— Ian Sams (@IanSams) March 8, 2019
A woman in a MAGA hat showed up to @KamalaHarris’ event in Myrtle Beach. She came over to Kamala after the event and talked with her for a minute. Swear to God, she then took off her MAGA hat and told Kamala she isn’t with Trump anymore.
Uh, sure Jan.
