Ocasio-Cortez Takes on “Racist” Ronald Reagan at Texas Festival


The world was waiting for Mensa member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to give us her deep thoughts on the Ronald Reagan era, and at long last the wait is over. Reagan, perhaps the greatest champion for capitalism to ever grace the White House, was sure to be on the freshman congresswoman’s radar as an enemy of the New Socialist Order, but who knew that she would stoop so low as to trash his legacy as one of racism? Well, when you go into an Ocasio-Cortez story expecting anything less than the worst, dumbest political commentary available in 2019, you’re just setting yourself up to be surprised.

On Saturday, in remarks before an audience at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, Ocasio-Cortez said that America needed to get beyond special interests and their desire to turn white people against minorities.

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.

“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'”

Commence sighing and rubbing that point in between your eyebrows.

It is practically unimaginable to see one of these modern leftists actually criticize anyone on the RIGHT for dividing Americans by race, but Ocasio-Cortez is always willing to go where others fear to tread. If people call her a moron, she’ll just zing ‘em with one of her patented sarcastic social media comebacks, her supporters will cheer, and she’ll get another 1500 headlines out of the flap. The woman knows how to work the media, we’ll give her that.

If only she knew what the hell she was talking about.
