New Star in the Stupidity Horizon
WASHINGTON, DC – November 27, 2018
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is far from the glory of Jen Psaki, of course, but there is no doubt that she has become a rising star in the progressive movement. After her loud victory in the midterms, she has become a real gift for the media, ever pleasing them with all new wacky things she says of varying degrees of sanity.
When the news broke that the Central American caravan rushed the US border and that Border Patrol agents fought back with tear gas, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter...to compare those caravan riders to the Jews fleeing from Nazi Germany.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) November 25, 2018
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn
It’s a ridiculous and disgusting attempt to compare what cannot be compared and to try to push her political agenda through these idiotic comparisons. Fortunately, for thinking people, the comparison caused only disgust.
Ocasio-Cortez was soon exposed to richly deserved criticism for her exploitation of the Holocaust.
A little earlier there was another incident after she drew a remarkable parallel with the victory over slavery and the support of candidates from the Democratic Party. It's not clear what logic she has been guided by, given that Lincoln was a Republican. In addition, slavery in the US is a done deal, and perhaps she should move her clock forward 150 years.
In addition, Okasio-Corte compared the danger of global warming with the threat posed by Nazi Germany, managed to complain about the high cost of housing in Washington after getting a job in Congress with an annual salary of $176,000, and during the election campaign in Kansas mixed up the traditional colors of the parties, supporting the “red.”
No matter how ridiculous it may look, it should be clarified that Ocasio-Cortez is in the socio-political movement of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)—the very movement that is struggling from the inside to sabotage the work of the current White House administration, calling itself the “resistance.”
However Ocasio-Cortez is not the only one. Do you remember Bush’s legendary speech when he confused Iraq with Iran? Or the speech of the first black president Barack Obama about the referendum in Kosovo? Or YouTube star Psaki? There's not enough space to describe all the stupid things she said.
Looking at the public speeches of American politicians, we often can’t believe our eyes: “Are you really okay? Did you even go to school?”
What is going on the US? Why are US politicians so striking in their ignorance and incompetence?
It’s sad to say, but there’s a bright new start on the horizon of American political stupidity, and her name is Ocasio-Cortez.
