The amounts of fame, acclaim,and clout freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC, has received in the last several months is unlike anything that we’ve seen in the political arena in a very long time.
The last time a young hotshot skyrocketed on the national stage like AOC was when Paul Ryan became one of the youngest congressmen in US history at the age of 29 back in 1999. He was instantly hailed as a political prodigy, much like AOC is amongst liberal socialists right now.
And one anti-Trump filmmaker claims that everyone already knows that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new leader of the Democratic Party.
Nobody embraces fame quite like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does. She absolutely relishes her newfound status in American society.
She’s become quite a little Twitter troll who claps back at virtually anybody who criticizes her radical policies that would result in insane taxes and she even says that we only have a mere 12 years to fix the environment or we are all going to die.
That’s why she developed a policy called “The Green New Deal” – an obvious play on words of former Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “The New Deal” back in the 1930s – that will put a stranglehold on businesses through regulation, and give free healthcare and college education to all.
The price tag cost of this radical proposal was estimated at $32 trillion and she believes that the wealthy will make up that difference. This is exactly why liberals absolutely adore her.
He said about AOC, “She is the leader. She’s the leader. Everyone knows it, everyone feels it, she’s the leader of this mass movement.”
That should give you an idea of the dire straits that the Democratic Party is in. If they are relying on a 29-year-old to save their party and then that is pretty pathetic.
Moore also said, “If you’re moderate, stop being moderate. Take a position, there’s no middle ground any more. There’s no halfway point to, should someone be paid a living wage? ‘Well, I’m a moderate, so I think they could be paid half of a living wage.’”
Moore’s point is liberal rhetoric that we hear over and over again, which is to say that everybody deserves a living wage – and people like former Democratic nominee for president Bernie Sanders put that number at $15 an hour. That’s even for fast food restaurant jobs.
The whole point behind fast food restaurant jobs – unless you’re in management – is that they are designed as stepping-stones in one’s career path. The idea is that you’re not supposed to stay in that same job for 30+ years and make $15 an hour.
Moore concluded, “You know–on the issue of choice. There’s no halfway there. You’re either for it or you’re against it. You know, do you believe in equal rights for women? Do you believe we should have an equal rights amendment? Yes or no? There’s no middle ground. This is no time for moderation.”
So basically what he is saying is that there’s no middle ground. That we have to push new laws and do something extreme – like what AOC has been pushing for since before she took the oath – or nothing at all.
There’s no reaching across the aisle towards the Republican counterparts and figuring out a proper solution; it’s either their way or the highway.
The Democratic Party has become not only unrecognizable but the party of extremism on a level we haven’t seen in American history. It’s at an all-time dangerous level at that too.
But Moore is definitely right when he says that AOC is the leader of the Democratic Party because she is incredibly popular with the younger generations and her ideas represent free handouts for all of them.
That’s why they love her.
