New York Democrat and House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are some of the most infamous members of the United States Congress. She’s known for making ridiculous comments that cause anyone with even an iota of common sense to roll their eyes and shake their head.
Some of the Congresswoman’s latest remarks about capitalism are a prime example of this. Ocasio-Cortez recently let the media know that she doesn’t view capitalism as a redeemable economic system.
She also advocated for a system outside of capitalism where the government controls property and profit distributions. In the real world, this is known as socialism or communism.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the nastiest thing to come from Ocasio-Cortez, not by a long shot. As reported by American Thinker, the New York representative ironically, hilariously, and unintentionally fact-checked herself in recent remarks.
Ocasio-Cortez and Cruz have clashed on multiple occasions since the former arrived in Congress. However, in the latest instance, the Democrat walked into things herself.
Days ago, Ocasio-Cortez was on video, bragging about getting coronavirus stimulus checks to illegal immigrants. In this video, the Congresswoman also confirmed she had the assistance of left-wing Sen. Dick Durbin.
Of course, Cruz responded to this video, noting his work to prevent illegal immigrants from getting stimulus checks. The Texas Republicans also noted how previous fact-checkers said Democrats weren’t trying to give stimulus aid to illegal immigrants. Yet, Ocasio-Cortez has already freely admitted Democrats are working to do this.
The GOP lawmaker, back in 2021, called out Sen. Durbin for claiming illegal immigrants would be barred from stimulus payments since these handouts require social security numbers. However, Durbin’s work to get around this is directly vocalized in Ocasio-Cortez’s video from days prior.
At this point, leftists have told so many lies they’re having a hard time keeping up with all of them. Getting stimulus money to illegal immigrants is barely the tip of the surface.
The reality of the more excellent picture is apparent, though. Democrats will lie and say whatever they believe is necessary to achieve their ends. Then, once Democrats have the power, they’ll do whatever they want, going back on their word.
One example is President Biden’s 2020 campaign promise not to mandate COVID vaccines. The commitment from Eric Adams not to defund the police is another instance. Days ago, Mayor Adams admitted the city’s police budget might witness a slight decrease.
The Democrat Party of today has no relationship with integrity, thus rendering them unfit to serve in public office.
