More idiocy from AOC - shooting off her mouth; just repeating various Lib crap/Lib Lies/Lib narratives she's heard or read that's inaccurate -

Read this drivel -

American History as Told by AOC

[www.wsj.com]

Austin’s South by Southwest, or SXSW, began as a music, film and tech conference but has become a popular stop for left-of-center politicos. This year, Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro all spoke, and soon-to-be White House hopeful Robert Francis O’Rourke premiered a documentary.

But SXSW’s 2019 rock star was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who filled 3,200 seats in the Convention Center Saturday. Notably, the Green New Deal advocate didn’t arrive in a Prius or on one of the ubiquitous scooters that clog Austin’s streets during the festival. She came instead in a gas-guzzling SUV.

Interviewed by Briahna Gray of the Intercept, a left-wing news site, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s attacks on racism and capitalism and pleas on behalf of “everyday working people” were applauded by the attendees, who paid between $1,325 and $1,650 for their “primary access to ALL events” passes.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez dealt at length with America’s pervasive racism, declaring, “The effort to divide race and class has always been a tool of the powerful to prevent everyday working people from taking control of the government.” America’s leaders also helped “racial resentment to become legitimized as a political tool.”

She and Ms. Gray agreed that Mr. Trump is a racist, of course. But so was President Reagan, who in 1976 criticized a Chicago woman for bilking the welfare system for $150,000 a year. That attack was “rooted in racism,” according to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, even though the woman in question was white.

Even more astonishing, the New York freshman representative declared Franklin D. Roosevelt a bigot, saying “the New Deal was an extremely economically racist policy that drew literal red lines around black and brown communities and basically it invested in white America.”

According to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, the New Deal “allowed white Americans to have access to home loans that black and brown Americans did not have access to.” By doing so, it “accelerated . . . a really horrific racial wealth gap that persists today.” Yet studies show that FDR’s Home Owners’ Loan Corp. did not discriminate against African-Americans, and the gap between black and white homeownership remained around 20% from 1900 to 1990, though ownership levels increased for both groups.

This attack on FDR exhibited another theme of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s appearance—the ubiquity of conspiracy. Just as FDR’s New Deal secretly discriminated against “black and brown Americans,” dangerous forces are subverting our country today.


For example, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez told the crowd America’s “norms and systems and electoral system” are “dominated by special interests and dark money and rules of seniority.” Because the rich have “taken away all the guardrails of a responsible society,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said, “it doesn’t feel good to live in America today.”

Furthermore, “We should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government.” Nor do these businesses want to help themselves and the community; under capitalism, “we seek and prioritize profit and the accumulation of money above all else and we seek it at any human and environmental cost.”

Our economic system is also “based on scarcity,” which corporations have made “artificial.” So “we are driven to work 80 hours a week when we are being the most productive at any point in American history.” If the profits weren’t “skimmed off and given to a billionaire,” we would “be working the least amount we’ve ever worked” —Marx’s promise of old. The crowd applauded as she excoriated the 540 American billionaires who stole our money.

She acknowledged that her policy responses—the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, guaranteed jobs, universal basic income—constitute socialism, but insisted “this isn’t radical. This is what we’ve always been.” America has always been socialist? Believe it. “It’s just that now,” she told the SXSW crowd, “we’ve strayed so far from what has really made us powerful and just and good and equitable and productive.”

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez implied that Democratic colleagues who oppose her are both cowards and hypocrites, complaining, “No one’s ever said to me, ‘I’ve got these really big donors and to be honest with you, this is why I can’t do that.’ ” How lonely to be that rare righteous member of Congress!

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez offered grace notes that explain her appeal, as when she urged the audience to work toward “ambitious acts of vision,” saying, “We are capable of so much as a country.” But these were few in her more than hour long interview spent bludgeoning America, its values, history, leaders and accomplishments. That was what the SXSW crowd wanted. It will be far less attractive to the rest of America.

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "leads a generation of young people to take pride in their ignorance—of the laws of nature, of history, of the Constitution, of the eternal battle for freedom—and still succeed."

Good article explaining how an idiot like AOC can be a representative of We the People -

Although it's mainly the stupid Millennials and Lib Women - CELEBRITY WORSHIPPERS - who are the idiots who think she's so great because they're all about the Cult of Personality, Popularity, Status, Hotness, etc. So shallow are they ...

Ocasio-Cortez Is an All-American Socialist

[outline.com]

As much as conservatives are aghast at the over-the-top collectivist ideas of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we cannot ignore the oversize intrigue with this young woman, who has gained instant influence and celebrity. Perhaps it is because people see her as so all-American.

We are fascinated by her personal success—the way she transformed herself almost instantly from a bartender to an international political star. Yes, this self-identified Democratic Socialist is ignorant of the ways of government. She thought she would be headed to Washington in January to get “inaugurated” and that she’d “start signing” bills immediately, in a Congress with three chambers. And her policy proposals are outrageously unrealistic and expensive—$100 trillion at least—and would destroy our economy.

Yet many people see the 29-year-old Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and think: If she can do this, so could I. She doesn’t come from a rich and powerful family. Her degree is from Boston University, not the Ivy League. Her Puerto Rican heritage and Bronx constituency convey cultural diversity.

Her adeptness with social media lets the public follow her every move—from being knocked down on the streets of New York by an overly affectionate dog to demonstrating her skin-care regimen and even showing how she makes macaroni and cheese. And she connects personally with voters, who say things like, “Thank you for being such a positive person in my life,” “You are an inspiration to women and young girls,” and, “Do you have any advice for how I can get into p“AOC” even has a familiar three-letter handle—like FDR, Ike and JFK.olitics?”

While millions of people agree with her radical ideas—from socialized medicine to abolishing fossil fuels—even more admire her outsize influence in the public debate, to the point that established members of Congress line up behind her and economists analyze her proposals in depth. Land of opportunity, indeed!

The tragedy is that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has little regard for the system that made it possible for her to be elected to Congress, gain extraordinary influence, have access to millions of dollars to pay staff (at a “living wage” of at least $52,000 a year, so generous is she with taxpayer money), and now with a standard of living far above what her old job could have provided. She leads a generation of young people to take pride in their ignorance—of the laws of nature, of history, of the Constitution, of the eternal battle for freedom—and still succeed.

Perhaps her role in killing 25,000 Amazon jobs in New York will wake people up, or maybe it’ll be the hubris of her recent tweet: “If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis. Until then, we’re in charge—and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats.”

Ah, democracy! Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has soared because of the freedom and prosperity her policies would destroy. Our attention to her fuels her celebrity and therefore her ideas. Time to get over our fascination and move on.

AOC Equivocating

[www.realclearpolitics.com]

In an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow following President Trump's Oval Office address, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said immigrants attempting to enter the U.S. illegally are "more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be."

REP. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ (D-NY): The president decided to hold the paychecks of everyday Americans hostage so that he can fulfill a campaign, I don't even want to call it a promise, I call it a fantasy that the vast majority of Americans disapprove of.

But not only that, in the actual address there was falsehood after falsehood and we have to make sure we get our facts straight. Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans and not only that but the women and children on the border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.

What an idiot!

An American is someone who was born in the USA or a foreign-born who became a Naturalized Citizen.

So no, Idiotic AOC, ILLEGAL ALIENS are not American in any way, shape or form!

*************

So she also said:

"the women and children on the border"

So she's talking about The Women and Children on the border, not THE MEN on the border. Again it's a Lib slight of hand twist and spin because yes, it's the ILLEGAL ALIEN MEN who are the CRIMINAL KILLERS, RAPISTS, THIEVES, DRUG CARTELS, DRUG SMUGGLERS, CHILD SEX TRAFFICKERS, GANG MEMBERS, MS-13 MEMBERS, ETC., not the 'women and children'.

**********

So much other baloney in that Ambiguous Statement of hers.

For example, she said:

"we have to make sure we get our facts straight."

LOL - she's famous for not getting her facts straight.

And previously when she was called out for her falsehoods (lies), she said:

"People More Concerned About Me Being "Factually Correct" Than "Morally Right""

That's here -

[www.realclearpolitics.com]

**************

She also said this above:

"everyday IMMIGRANTS commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans"

That's another Lib Twist/Falsehood which I've explained in a separate thread because in Fact:

Illegal Aliens commit more crimes than native-born americans.

AOC is Equivocating where she's calling "Illegal Immigrants" just plain "Immigrants", which is a not what we or Trump is referring to - the Issue is ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, not IMMIGRANTS.

What's that called - a Logical Fallacy.

What an Idiotic Liar! At the least her statement is Equivocation (ambiguity)

And it's A Straw Man argument that "Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans"

Because nobody, including Trump, ever said that "IMMIGRANTS" commit crimes at a greater rate than NATIVE-BORN Americans, Idiot! The Argument is, and Trump and we are saying, that: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS commit crimes at a higher rate than Native-born Americans!

*********

So AOC clearly supports ILLEGAL ALIENS and especially ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS/KILLERS/DRUG TRAFFICKERS/GANGS/MS-13/RAPISTS/CHILD SEX TRAFFICKERS etc. above American citizens!

And that's who The Libs are obsessed with:

An idiotic, ignorant idiot millennial who shoots off her mouth at every opportunity to 'get famous'!

Wowser!

Wow, you learned how to use the quote function of Russia Today

Quoteing RUSSIA TODAY to smear AOC shows how desperate people are to smog reality

I was just a little surprised seeing repeated quotes from RT by jennifer.


Have you been watching Russian government propaganda? or in Jennifers case quoting Russian Govt propaganda?

Posted by Patrick Hilsman
Talk show legend Larry King hosts the show PoliticKING on 'RT' (aka 'Russia Today') a cable TV network funded by the Russian government.

You might not have even noticed you were watching it, but RT has become one of the most widely viewed news services on the internet.

The network has made inroads with young American viewers with its comprehensive coverage of stories that go underreported by major American media outlets. An early focus on sharing segments of those broadcasts via YouTube made it the first TV news channel to reach a billion views online.

In 2011, RT (which dropped the original name “Russia Today” altogether in 2009) focused a great deal of its coverage on Occupy Wall Street, and has since turned to a strategy of hiring American political commentators and television personalities like Lee Camp, Abby Martin and Larry King.

The Kremlin-funded outlet has practically unlimited resources, which have allowed it to present itself, without advertising, as the alternative to what it characterizes as corporate American media.

At the same time, RT has put an American face on its coverage to offset the notion that it’s the voice of the Russian government. If you turn on RT, you are likely to see the commentary of American celebrities, from Immortal Technique to Steven Seagal.

But intertwined with Russia Today’s coverage of police brutality and NSA spying are attempts to improve Putin’s image when his leadership comes under criticism. Sometimes the pro-Putin editorial line is quite subtle — in a widely publicized segment Abbey Martin even denounced the Russian annexation of Crimea lending some credibility to the argument that RT is an independent network. If anything this was the exception that proves the rule because often the network’s primary function as a Kremlin outlet is blatantly obvious.

Vladimir Putin on a 2013 RT broadcast.
Vladimir Putin on a 2013 RT broadcast.
One particularly Orwellian example was RT’s coverage of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov’s assassination. When Putin’s fiercest Russian critic was gunned down in central Moscow blocks from the Kremlin, RT offered a very troubling version of events:

“This assassination is meant to create trouble, and if politicians in Russia or world wide would start playing the blame game and putting it on president Putin or any other force in Russia, then it means the assassins will have succeeded.”

The supposedly independent RT commentator immediately parrots the words of Putin’s spokesman who used the phrase “100% provocation” when describing the murder. The segment goes on to accuse the western media of jumping to conclusions too soon without challenging the immediate insinuation that the assassination was a foreign conspiracy to discredit Putin.

Many of the American guests, who have offered views on Syria and Ukraine similar to Moscow’s, have a much darker side. The news service promotes well-known white supremacists and Holocaust deniers as “activists” and “philosophers.”

Ryan “Ry” Dawson, the producer of numerous films denying the Holocaust is presented as a “political blogger” when asked for his commentary on the crisis in Ukraine.

Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 9.50.08 PM

Dawson is a rising star in the robust American conspiracy culture online. His commentary focuses on familiar conspiracy themes, like 9/11, government surveillance and the New World Order, but it is particularly troubling because of the obsessive focus on a familiar fascist theme of an international Jewish conspiracy.

For years, there has been a segment of the American public that believes in conspiracies about JFK, 9/11, the moon landing and UFOs, but generally these people are not Holocaust deniers or Nazi sympathizers. Dawson’s YouTube channel, however, is replete with content that that would be quite unsettling to most RT viewers in the U.S. His channel contains hours of videos and documentaries with titles like “Holohoax” and “The Holocaust Deception,” as well as interviews with other Holocaust revisionists.

Gordon Duff has been featured on RT numerous times as a commentator on subjects from the war in Syria to the 2013 Navy Yard shooting. While he is presented as the editor of an “independent news site” when he is on RT, the Vietnam veteran is actually an outspoken Holocaust denier with close ties to white supremacists. In an editorial on Veterans Today, Gordon Duff called former KKK grand-Wizard David Duke “a powerful and charismatic speaker with more than a minor sense of honor and a total loyalty to the truth.”

Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 10.02.31 PM

So while RT features a deceptive stream of well-meaning, ostensibly liberal guests like Chris Hedges and Joe Rogan, there are numerous superstars of the far right on RT’s roster.

RT presents itself as a liberal alternative in the United States, but in Europe it is the flagship of resurgent nationalist parties. An editorial line that strongly endorses nationalist parties is apparent in RT’s coverage of European politics: racist parties like the French “National Front” are presented as Euro-skeptics, and in some instances, people who self-identify as Nazis have been given favorable coverage. Alain Soral is a notorious right wing French writer whose work is steeped in an obsessive hatred of Jews and belief in an international Jewish conspiracy. In the intro of one of his books, Soral clearly states that he considers himself a national socialist. None of this stopped RT from presenting him as a political philosopher and focusing on his international policy views, which, unsurprisingly, are pro-Russian.

Marine Le Pen, the head of the French anti-immigrant right, is granted star treatment by the network. The network’s interview with Le Pen begins with what sounds more like a campaign ad than an introduction:

“Marine Le Pen is breathing down the neck of the establishment and challenging patriarchy. In multiculturalism’s graveyard, could she lead the way? Will she have the strength to save the sinking ship and return France to its simple pleasures? We talk to the leading lady of French politics.”

The network’s bias is clear.

The intellectual laziness and sensationalism of major American media outlets is largely to blame for RT’s appeal to younger viewers, and its ability to disguise pro-Putin propaganda as alternative media.

For years, major American news channels have been silent on issues that matter more and more to young people. Issues like police brutality, Israeli war crimes in Gaza, money in politics, and protest movements have been underreported or ignored by cable news. That silence, coupled with a clear shift towards tabloid coverage, has destroyed the credibility of American cable news with younger audiences.

RT excels at filling this vacuum while painting Russian leadership in a positive light.

Devastation from Israeli airstrikes in Gaza was mistakenly presented by ABC World News as destruction in Israel in 2014.
Devastation from Israeli airstrikes in Gaza was mistakenly presented by ABC World News as destruction in Israel in 2014.
Despite a very refined strategy, the Ukrainian crisis has proved particularly challenging for the image of the network. The Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine, blatant oppression of Putin’s opponents, and anti gay rhetoric coming from Moscow are not likely to endear Putin to American viewers.

RT was rocked by the very public on-air resignation of presenter Liz Wahl who subsequently accused the network of publicizing pro-Putin propaganda. In an apparent case of damage control, RT aired a segment implying that the resignation was part of a neoconservative conspiracy.

Despite these troubles, RT continues to expand. Ironically, the network signed a lucrative contract with the Israeli company RRsat, which distributes RT’s content in the United States. A new UK-based RT channel was also launched last year.

For the time being, RT continues to feature right wing extremists as guests alongside a multitude of American celebrities. While some challenge the network’s credibility, it remains popular with young left-leaning Americans who see mere snapshots of the network’s polarizing content making the rounds online.

There are no signs that the network intends to distance itself from any of its Islamophobic or anti-Semitic commentators at any point in the future, and there is every indication that RT will continue promoting the pro-Putin extreme right in Europe. Even though Putin’s image is increasingly tarnished in the U.S., RT and its guests have his back. As Steven Seagal stated in a bizarre interview with the network, “[Putin] is one of the greatest world leaders, if not the greatest world leader alive today.”

Most RT viewers are probably not as enthusiastic about Putin as Steven Seagal is. But the Kremlin’s savvy and sophisticated mouthpiece has the attention of millions of young Americans, whether they know it or not.
