The rumors have been proven true – Ocasio-Cortez, socialist media darling, is the most current low-intelligence face of the Democrat Party. She can’t explain socialism, (while calling herself one) speaks in political generalities that would make even the political generalities emperor Barack Obama blush, and then when asked to participate in a debate on the current issues of the day, promptly declares debates to be “sexist.” (HUH?) Candace Owens, the fearless Millenial truthsayer of minority America who wants nothing more than people to think for themselves, offers to debate Ocasio-Cortez for charity. Cortez, now fearing the parking lot puddle depth of her intellectualism will be even more openly exposed, promptly runs away.
Via American Spectator:
The prom queen of socialism says debates are sexist.
Everyone’s favorite Democratic socialite continues to entertain, and not merely because of her unique views about how the world works beyond Westchester, NY. She has kept us in stitches with her claim that Medicare-for-All will save the nation zillions in funeral expenses, her weird belief that questions about the costs of M4A are merely GOP talking points, and her unique theory about the SCOTUS ruling in NFIB v. Sebelius. Now she has us slapping our thighs with comical excuses for refusing to participate in a debate about the virtues of socialism versus those of capitalism with black conservative Candace Owens.
Shortly following her refusal to accept a debate challenge from Ben Shapiro, claiming that it was somehow sexist, Candace Owens called out Ocasio-Cortez on that excuse by offering to donate $20,000 to a charity of the latter’s choice if she would debate capitalism vs. socialism. The self-styled “girl from the Bronx” has declined, but Owens isn’t letting her off the hook: “And what exactly was your excuse for having turned down the debate with me? Can’t wrap that one up in fake-feminism.” Not that her excuse is really a secret. Ocasio-Cortez knows little of socialism’s intellectual foundation, such as it was, and less about capitalism.
Gone are the days when serious, if hopelessly misguided, people like Michael Harrington could debate socialism in a civil fashion with heavyweight conservatives like William F. Buckley. All of Harrington’s claims have now been shown by history to be false, leaving the left with a catalog of empty slogans parroted by “progressives” who couldn’t stay in the ring with Buckley for 30 seconds. This is why the American left has now reverted to the suppression of free speech, the verbal abuse of its opponents, and outright violence. History hasn’t been kind to socialism, and honest debate will not be kind to Ocasio-Cortez.
That last bolded sentence is very important because it speaks directly to what is going on in the country right now. The Far Left cannot win on ideas and substance because history has proven time and time again that leftism leads to totalitarianism which leads to chaos, starvation, the loss of human rights, and ultimately the loss of life. And so what is the Far Left in America to do? They attempt to harass, intimidate, and most recently, outright censor ideas that run counter to their own.
The Democrat party and its leftist enablers in the Establishment and Social Media complex are the Brown Shirt fascists of our time. That isn’t mere exaggeration.
It’s the truth.
