Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just crossed a bright red line.
The freshmen Democrat charged into Washington hellbent on making America into her own image.
And what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just said about Ronald Reagan will leave you speechless.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made a career out of trying to tear down America.
She believes it is a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic wasteland and that the country’s founding principles need to be tossed aside in favor of socialism and “social justice.”
And her pure hatred of Americans who stand up for what made this country great was on full display during the South by Southwest technology festival in Austin, Texas.
There, Ocasio-Cortez trashed former President Ronald Reagan as a racist.
“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working class Americans is Reaganism in the eighties, when he started talking about welfare queens.”
“So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing, that were ‘sucks’ on our country,” she said.
“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because … this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez raged.
“It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘Oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'”
Reagan biographer Craig Shirley fired back at Ocasio-Cortez’s millennial ignorance.
“There is no evidence of @AOC ever picked up a book on President Reagan. so she would not know he was the president who signed the order creating the Dr. Martin Luther King national holiday,” Shirley tweeted.
Ocasio-Cortez – never one to back down from a twitter fight – doubled down on her lies about Ronald Reagan.
She recited a laundry list of the left’s favorite falsehoods about Reagan’s record, such as claiming he let the AIDS epidemic happen in order to decimate homosexuals, the Iran-Contra affair, homelessness, and targeting blacks with harsh sentences for dealing crack.
Ok great, now talk about Reagan and: – Iran-Contra + – The gutting of our mental health system + – The explosion of homelessness under his watch + – The crack epidemic Maybe instead of insinuating I’ve never read a book, be open to the idea that we’ve read different ones.
– HIV/AIDS crisis and demonization of LGBT+ community – Union-busting – Ending the Fairness Doctrine, which launched the polarized media environment we’re suffering from today Why are we not supposed to talk about these things?
This is nothing but left-wing revisionist history.
Ronald Reagan oversaw an economic boom that not only benefited every American, but fueled a military buildup that spent the Soviet Union into submission and won the Cold War without firing a shot.
