The future of their party and who knows who else

You don’t like PDT? Well then try this on instead. Via Steve Hayward.

And yet another take from Ms Allie Beth Stuckey who has been criticised by all the unusual suspects, to whom she has replied:

1) I am not sorry.
2) It’s not coming down.
3) I will make another one.
4) You don’t have to hate Trump to use humor.
5) I don’t have to warn you when I’m about to tell a joke.

So let us see what Ms Ocasio-Cortez’s supporters are like, although the reality is that try as you might you cannot parody them since they are such ignorant fodder for a tyranny they have no conception of. It’s a not very random sample, but there are plenty more like them everywhere.

They are the very definition of drongo. Know-nothings about anything they need to know, whose arrogant stupidity may yet drag us into an abyss out of which even a century from now there will be no coming out of the depths into which our economies might yet descend.

    I don’t know. Like you know. Like yeah. Like wow!

    Socialism is modern humanity’s recurring nightmare.

  3. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray

    Socialism is the default mechanism in our make-up- like sucking your thumb. We all want to go back to what we were once good at. Our genes come from times when we all lived in tribes, and there were rules for every occasion. We need to break away from this instinct to be part of an anonymous group.

  4. I’ve seen several of these videos (US ones) and the cause goes right back to the education system. The kids are being taught from an early age that Socialism is good for all.

    It’s a worry. Surely some of those videos are touched up to be more absurd.

    The second one is satire, Rob.

    These “socialists”are as thick as two short planks wonder what they would say if real socialism was forcibly imposed on them . Loved the dickhead who said “, I want these things the government can work out how to pay for it “. Love the words “democratic socialism “as if such a thing has ever existed .

    According to Ms Ocasio-Cortez the rule of law is now ethnic cleansing.

    Ocasio-Cortez: Trump Zero-Tolerance Policy on Spectrum of ‘Ethnic Cleansing’

    Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” enforcement policy is on the spectrum of “ethnic cleansing.”

    I wonder if she thinks withdrawal of food stamps is genocide?

  9. Roger

    I wonder if she thinks withdrawal of food stamps is genocide?

    And ending race quotas is discrimination?

  10. Egor

    No, no…make it so. Valuable Trump election ad.
    The Ohio, Pen, Mich, Min, Wis, Indi et al blue collar, formerly Democrats, are really going to relate to this posturing wanker.
    She wouldn’t know a reo bar from a dildo.

    And yet another take from Ms Allie Beth Stuckey who has been criticised by all the unusual suspects, to whom she has replied:
    To clarify AGAIN for the misreporting journalists & the blue checkmarks demanding an explanation:
    1) I am not sorry.
    2) It’s not coming down.
    3) I will make another one.
    4) You don’t have to hate Trump to use humor.
    5) I don’t have to warn you when I’m about to tell a joke.

    A Megyn Kelly lookalike with a lot of nerve. It takes guts to go against the monolithic media. I saw her interview on Fox with Tucker Carlson and she is quick witted as well as insightful. Wish we had someone like that.

  12. Bruce of Newcastle

    A Megyn Kelly lookalike with a lot of nerve. It takes guts to go against the monolithic media.

    Lots of outrageous outrage from the usual suspects. They completely ignored that Colbert has been doing the exact same thing to Trump for ages.

    Conservative’s satirical Ocasio-Cortez ‘interview’ triggers media uproar

    The Washington Post pointed to the video’s surge through the social media platform “as another example of how misleading information continues to thrive in the fast-paced flow of information online despite Facebook’s promise to better weed it out.”

    The Verge cited similar concerns, while the Twitterati took aim – a Vox producer called the video “Reprehensible,” while a New York Times reporter complained the “faked interview” was “not labeled satire.”

    Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the comment, adding: “Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore.”

    Yep she appears to have no sense of humour and seems never to have encountered satire. At least not on the receiving end.

  13. Robbo

    The sad thing is that they just have to walk down the street, any street, and these morons are everywhere. I’ll bet we would see exactly the same if someone in Australia did some street interviews.

  14. C.L.

    She looks like one of the Manson disciples.

  15. Infidel Tiger

    She will be President some day.

  16. Zatara

    a New York Times reporter complained the “faked interview” was “not labeled satire.”

    Meaning that it is so plausible such a warning is necessary. Nice own goal.

  17. stackja

    Socialists believe if they keep trying enough times their theories will work.

  18. .

    a New York Times reporter complained the “faked interview” was “not labeled satire.”

    She probably thinks John Oliver is American too.

  19. Norman Church

    This post is interesting.

    It tends to confirm the comment made by some Cats in earlier posts that support for socialism is generally not for the nationalisation of the means of production but for an expanded welfare state.

    Unsurprisingly, students are particularly attracted to free tertiary education. And fees in the US can be very high.

    Maybe there was a case for reforming the US health system but Obamacare seems a very poor attempt a solution compared to, say, a Singaporean system which has prudence, self reliance and efficiency embedded in the very DNA of its design.

  20. .

    Free university is not the true scam, it is licensing and accreditation.

    Let’s say Khan Academy could give out mathematics degrees.

    Now, who would form the most political opposition to that?

  21. Fleeced

    She’s got crazy eyes.

    She will be President some day.

    Possibly.

    Fortunately, she can’t run until she’s 35 – she’ll still be too young in 2024.

  22. struth

    Products of a corrupted education system.

    It all starts in our schools.

  23. Norman Church

    Dot, you make a good point. Accreditation requirements and other barriers to entry so often lead to adverse outcomes for consumers such as high prices. Yet measures to remove these barriers to entry and eliminate choke points are are so often ignored in favour of subsidies funded by the tax payer.

    Socialism is the political philosophy of infants: “I am weak and incompetent, I need a benevolent parent to make all my decisions and feed me”. Western society is schooling its citizens to remain children forever, no wonder socialism is spreading.

  25. The sad thing is that they just have to walk down the street, any street, and these morons are everywhere. I’ll bet we would see exactly the same if someone in Australia did some street interviews.

    Way back when he was at his peak, Don Chipp did exactly that, with a TV camera in tow.
    His question was slightly different, the answers pretty much as clueless as above.

  26. Iampeter

    She’s a female Trump but less blow-hard.
    You guys should be stoked!

  27. Iampeter

    People who support trillion dollar spending bills, tariffs and now it seems billion dollar subsidies for those negatively impacted (predictably) by tariffs, are NOT fighting socialism.

    You ARE socialists. Just much more confused about it than someone like Alexandria.

  28. Over the last Christmas Holidays, I was treated to a blistering display of this sort of stupidity from close friends and family. It led to a bit of a verbal dust up and I came back here thinking about the issue that had been raised.
    I realised that no amount of logical argument, no pleading for people to look at history and learn, and no possible level of education would make the sub 40’s work out what they were doing wrong.
    They were addicted to having a government parent and no amount of talk would remove them from their outlook and sense of entitlement.
    This was when I fully realised the philosophy that I espouse today:

    “The drunks have to wake up in a gutter, covered in blood and shit, smelling of vomit and piss, before they can be convinced they have a problem.”

    (Quote by WS.)
    No more guarding the battlements of Fortress Australia, no more asking people where the money is coming from, no more tolerance of stupidity.
    Learn the hard way, or the other hard way – it’s Not. My. Problem.

    VIDEO: OCASIO-CORTEZ ENVISIONS SOCIALIST UTOPIA – WITH CARBON TAXES FOR ALL!

    Democrat apparatchik Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez laid out a utopian model of socialism during an appearance on The Daily Show Thursday.
    Asserting she’d met with a Nobel Prize economist, the New York Democrat from the Bronx described three ways to fund the government under socialism – tax the rich, carbon taxes for all and slash military spending…

    Socialism is the political philosophy of infants: “I am weak and incompetent, I need a benevolent parent to make all my decisions and feed me”. Western society is schooling its citizens to remain children forever, no wonder socialism is spreading.

    This hits the nail squarely on the head.

    Just look at our media in this country.
    Even talking to older people here in the Socialist Block of Venestralia; if you talk about making people responsible for their own lives they label you an uncaring Trump Supporter, which in their minds is evil.

    The remark of all time that just has you face palming is: “They take enough of our money already, they “should” be providing us with free stuff”
