New Democrat Member Of Congress Wants Big Government To Take 70% Of Every Dollar You Earn…

Oof. The Democrat parade of political lunacy is on full tilt these days as newly-elected socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared to CNN her hope to see Big Government be allowed to snatch up to 70% of YOUR income in order to fund a climate change plan she is calling the “New Green Deal.” Oh, and then she compared herself to Abraham Lincoln. Wowza…

“People are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes,” Ocasio-Cortez told Cooper in a preview clip of Sunday’s show while comparing herself to former Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Transcript:

OCASIO-CORTEZ: There’s an element where, yeah, people are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes.

COOPER: Do you have a specific on the tax rate?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: You know, you look at our tax rates back in the ‘60s, and when you have a progressive tax rate system, your tax rate, you know, let’s say from 0 to $75,000 may be 10 percent or 15 percent, et cetera. But once you get to like the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 percent or 70 percent, that doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more.

COOPER: What you are talking about, just big picture, is radical agenda compared to the way politics is done right now.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Well, I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country. Abraham Lincoln made the radical decision to sign the emancipation proclamation. Franklin D. Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programs like Social Security. That’s radical.

COOPER: Do you call yourself a radical?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Yeah, you know, if that’s what radical means, call me a radical.

What a genius! Love the use of that highly-regarded economic term ‘tippy tops.’


 

Senator Lindsey Graham Calls Out Anti-Semitic Democrat Congresswoman For Her Inane Holocaust Statement

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s is dangerously dumb and today Senator Lindsey Graham rightfully called out another of her stunningly stupid comments. This one came in the form of a pro-invasion stance in which Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez likened the would-be illegals crashing the gates of the U.S. southern border to Jewish Holocaust victims and families fleeing Rwandan genocide in the 1990’s. Six million murdered Jews and 800,000 slain Rwandans has no similarity to five or six thousand (primarily young men) attempting to illegally enter the United States. To attempt such a comparison is a terribly insulting gesture but sadly one that has become all too common with the intellectually challenged Ocasio-Cortez who herself has literally embraced Muslim fanatics who openly call for the destruction of Israel and the subjugation of women to the medieval laws of Sharia. Her attacks on our border and ICE agents, (many of whom are minorities) likening them (directly and/or indirectly) to Nazis, are utterly deplorable.

Shame on her.

Candace Owens Challenges Democrat Socialist Darling Ocasio-Cortez To A Debate. Cortez Runs Away…

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.
