The emperor is wearing no clothes. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , card-carrying Socialist, gets hit by softball questions and still falls to pieces. It won’t matter in the general election, because her district has as many Republicans as CNN has viewers. (Yes, it’s really that bad…) Margaret Hoover is now the host of “Firing Line”, the program begun by William F Buckley. Ocasio-Cortez appeared on her show, and proceeded to make herself look like a fool. She started off calling the killing of Palestinians storming the border as a massacre and not as self defense. Then she said that Israel is an occupying force, not being smart enough to know that Israel has stayed behind its own borders.
“Well, yes, but I also think that what people are starting to see, at least, in the occupation of Palestine, is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition,” the candidate said. “And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”
“You use the term ‘the occupation of Palestine,’” Hoover continued. “What do you mean by that?”
“Oh! Um.” There was a significant pause before Ocasio-Cortez embarked on her answer. “I think what I meant is, like, the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas and places where Palestinians are experiencing difficulty in access to their housing and homes.”
“Do you think you can expand on that?” Hoover continued, showing considerable restraint by not asking whether Ocasio-Cortez would like to phone a friend.
“Yeah, I mean, I think, I’d also just — I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said, breaking into laughter. (No s*#t,Sherlock.)
That is not the only time she has embarrassed herself. In the same interview with Hoover, she claimed that unemployment is so low because everyone has two jobs. Does she actually know anything about anything?
“The economy is going pretty strong … there’s roughly 4 percent, 3.9 percent unemployment,” Margaret Hoover, host of PBS’ “Firing Line,” told Ocasio-Cortez during an interview. “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working-class Americans?”
“Well, I think the numbers you just talked about is part of the problem, right?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We look at these figures and we say, ‘Oh, unemployment is low, everything is fine, right?’”
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” she said. “Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”
So, having low unemployment is a problem? Well, let the liberals elect all liberals and the country won’t have that problem. Case in point: 8 years of Obama.
I know the Supreme Court ruled that it is illegal to prevent someone for voting because they have an enormously low IQ…but they didn’t say the same thing about candidates.
