On February 1, 2019, The Daily Wire quoted the vapor-minded Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new and rising star of the radical left Democrat party, with a number of things that relate to the state of our nation at the moment. In the paragraph below I’ve briefly summarize, in my own words, what AOC’s message was to America:
Ms. Cortez acknowledges that she is privileged to have been born “cisgendered” (the intellectually struggling lady used the latest hip and trendy term as a way of saying that she has a female body and actually thinks of herself as a woman, which in today’s self-identity-blinded Democrat party, is unheard of) and she further lectures each of us small-minded Americans to recognize and identify our own areas of privilege and try to have sympathy for those among us who have lesser status and privilege, and maybe tone down our own attempts get an education, to be successful, to achieve status, to become wealthy and rise above the social and economic stratum we were born into. Basically she wants us to stop trying to improve ourselves and live better than we were born, and be more like the less-privileged among us. Of course the one thing Ms. Cortez misses is that the entire world is caravanning to our borders in an attempt to be part of the enormous privilege that just being born in America, or becoming a legal American citizen, bestows on all who are here. But radical Democrats will always be radical Democrats, so she feels the need to criticize America and all upwardly mobile Americans who try to better themselves, while suggesting that maybe we should not try so hard to be successful and should instead make efforts to live like those who try less hard, so we don’t make them feel bad about themselves.
Ms. Cortez seems to be encouraging us to reduce our own ambitions and live like the homeless and the drug addicted live, but I rather think that the American tradition of trying to be the best we can be is preferable. And by far the most compassionate way to conduct one’s life is to encourage everyone to achieve their utmost, regardless of Ms. Cortez’s idea of one’s privilege-level, and have the lesser-privileged raise themselves to a more successful and comfortable level so they can enjoy life more, instead of trying to encourage achievers to live at a bare subsistence level.
At the political level Democrats like Ms. Cortez just want to make everyone poor and dependent on big government for handouts and low-level housing. That’s the way Democrats gain more power for themselves and their radical party. But in the case of the dim-witted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, there is probably the same level of political calculation we can attribute to people like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who do actually scheme every day of their lives for a plan to make themselves dictators so they can run everyone else‘s lives; I believe that AOC really believes the crap she spews about privilege, self-identity and cisgendering, and that ignorance makes her even more dangerous to America and its citizens than the outright lies of more intelligent Democrats. I resent people like AOC lecturing me and other Americans on how to behave, when she’s such an unaccomplished, brainwashed, dunderhead.
