Bartender-turned-Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who still hasn’t figured out how to strike “like” and “um” from her vocabulary, slandered America and Ronald Reagan during an appearance at the South By Southwest Conference & Festivals (SXSW).
The Daily Caller’s Virginia Kruta reports:
“What’s really hard for people to sometimes see is that we are on this path of a slow erosion, and a slow slow slow just like — move away from what we’ve always been,” Ocasio-Cortez began by explaining how she feels that America has moved away from what it should be. “You won’t even realize that you’ve drifted a hundred miles.”
She then appeared to suggest that her Democratic Socialist policies represent core American values, arguing that we had just strayed so far from them that we couldn’t recognize them anymore. “So when someone’s talking about ‘our core,’ they’re like, ‘oh, this is radical,’ but it isn’t radical. This is what we’ve always been,” she said.
“I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are,” she concluded, “but where we are is not a good thing. And this idea of like, ten percent better than garbage, it shouldn’t be what we settle for.”
Ocasio-Cortez was criticized early on for her plans to attend the festival — mainly because she was planning to fly to the event and she had just presented her Green New Deal that called for the elimination of air travel.
Later, the freshman congresswoman claimed former President Ronald Reagan pit white working-class Americans against struggling minorities to “screw over all working-class Americans.”
