Stupidity is king (or queen)!
From the article: “.. the future of the party is working class ..” “.. no person should be too poor to live in this country” – she said .. but, without capitalism there’s no working class, no jobs and you’d all be poor!
Democrats can’t win, even when they win.
The new socialist darling of the Democrat Party, who supports abolishing ICE, and impeaching President Trump, and who successfully unseated an 11-term incumbent in a quest for his congressional seat, just made a fool of herself on national TV.
The 28-year-old self-proclaimed “socialist” could not even explain what “socialism” is during an interview with ABC’s “The View.”
From Daily Wire
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t explain the difference between socialism and Democratic socialism while appearing on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
Co-host Meghan McCain asked Ocasio-Cortez about the views of her party, the Democratic Socialists of America, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Do you think that the future of the Democratic Party is socialism?” McCain asked.
“First of all, there’s a huge difference between socialism and Democratic socialism,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “Democratic socialism, and really what that boils down to me, is the basic belief that I believe that in a moral and wealthy America and a moral and modern America, no person should be too poor to live in this country.”
Ocasio-Cortez was unable to provide any examples of how socialism and Democratic socialism were different, based on the clip from the Free Beacon.
“That’s what I believe,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I can understand that there may be some divisions. You know, I don’t think people wake up in the morning and say, ‘I’m a capitalist!’”
When it comes to dishonest Democrats there’s no shortage of examples. If she lied then, she probably also lie now ..
DEM SENATOR CALLS FOR ICE TO BE ABOLISHED – FORGETS WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN 2009
Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand has called for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be abolished.
The far-left position has gained popularity on the fringes of the Democratic Party as the immigration debate heats up in the country. Gillibrand joins New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who said Friday “ICE’s time has come and gone. We should abolish ICE. We should create something better, something different.”
However, when Gillibrand was just elected to a rather conservative House seat in Upstate New York, she was singing a different tune on illegal immigration. According to a report by the New York Times from 2009, Gillibrand was a hawk on immigration, advocating for strict enforcement of our immigration laws.
The article says:
“During her one term in the House of Representatives, from a largely rural, traditionally Republican district, Kirsten E. Gillibrand was on safe political ground adopting a tough stance against illegal immigration.
Ms. Gillibrand, a Democrat, opposed any sort of amnesty for illegal immigrants, supported deputizing local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration laws, spoke out against Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to allow illegal immigrants to have driver’s licenses and sought to make English the official language of the United States.
But since her appointment by Gov. David A. Paterson last week to fill the Senate seat vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ms. Gillibrand has found herself besieged by immigrant advocates and Democratic colleagues who have cast her as out of step with a majority of the state, with its big cities and sprawling immigrant enclaves.”
