During a campaign event with Bernie Sanders in Kansas on Friday, Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez encouraged Democrat voters in Kansas to turn that state red.
In a video that was posted to Sanders’s twitter account, Ocasio-Cortez is seen standing next to Bernie Sanders saying, “Hello, everybody! So excited to be here on Sen. Sanders’ account and we’re here in Kansas City to rally for Brent Welder,” the New York congressional candidate said. “We’re gonna flip this seat red in November.”
Sanders has since deleted the video, but the internet is forever:
Despite calling for voters in Kansas to vote Republican, the video is still on Sanders’s Twitter and has not been deleted. In the video, Brent Welder, the candidate Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez traveled to Kansas to campaign for can be seen awkwardly hovering behind Sanders in the video as well while Ocasio encourages voters to vote for his opposition.
Anyone with basic knowledge of how the American political system works knows that Republican states are red, and Democrat states are blue. The differentiation between red and blue states is a political concept that is taught in most 8th grade social studies courses, which further emphasizes the fact that Ocasio-Cortez, a self proclaimed socialist, is highly uneducated in American politics and economics.
Since winning a primary in New York City last month against 20-year Democratic incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), Ocasio’s lack of political knowledge and extreme unawareness regarding domestic and foreign policy has been put on full display for the world to see.
“We know that people in Kansas, just like everywhere else in this country, just like families in the Bronx, just want a fair shake,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the surprise winner in a New York House primary last month, told the crowd of more than 3,000 in a suburb of Kansas City.
While Ocasio-Cortez proclaims to be a 28-year-old Latina “girl from the Bronx”, it was shortly revealed after she won the primary against Crowley that she has been dishonest with voters about her background in an attempt to appeal to socialists. Ocasio grew up in Westchester, NY, which is one of the most expensive counties in the United States.
In another embarrassing moment in which her lack of knowledge was exposed, Ocasio-Cortez, during an interview with PBS host Margaret Hoover was asked if capitalism has failed working class Americans. Ocasio-Cortez said that evidence shows Capitalism has failed and that unemployment was decreasing because everyone in America has two jobs.
“Well, I think the numbers you just talked about is part of the problem, right? We look at these figures and we say, ‘Oh, unemployment is low, everything is fine,’ right?” Ocasio-Cortez told Hoover. “Well, unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their kids.”
Ocasio Cortez’s claim that every single American is working two jobs is inaccurate and completely false. Along with being false, her claim is alarming, given the fact that she is running to become an elected official and is being given an immense amount of airtime to spew lies about the American political and economic landscape.
During the same interview with Hoover, the socialist was fully exposed as having no knowledge about Israel and Middle Eastern foreign policy. When asked about Israel, Ocasio-Cortez said Israel is an occupier of Palestine. When Hoover asked her to explain what she means by occupied Palestine, she mumbled incoherent thoughts together, and kept stuttering while awkwardly looking around the room until she finally stopped talking and admitted she is not an expert on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Ocasio-Cortez is set to travel the country campaigning for several more far–Left candidates throughout the 2018 midterms. If she and her Democrat counterparts continue spewing socialist talking points, encourage violence against the Right, and keep making fools of themselves on mainstream media, the Democratic Party won’t need a low-IQ 28-year old woman to tell voters to flip states Red. Millions of voters on their own will wake up and #WalkAway.
