Get ready for the latest rant from Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, she is giving her two cents about why we have record inflation. You are not going to believe her position.
AOC flatly denies that it’s the government’s policies that have led to massive inflation, she believes that it has been caused by menacing, corporate greed. Of course, she does.
But that’s not all, she also has declared that we are living in an “environment of fascism.” Wow.
AOC made these amazing claims while being interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes. She was focusing on how Democrats are failing in polls just before the midterm elections due to the weak economy.
“Even when we talk about issues like inflation. A lot of this has to do with the massive consolidation of our markets and corporate greed. Our inflation is not going up due to government policies, inflation is going up due to Wall Street decisions,” she angrily said.
It was earlier in the interview that she made the fascism accusation. She said it was coming from some citizens, mostly on the right, attempting to guard voter ballot boxes against voter fraud.
AOC said that there was no doubt that the data indicates that the vast majority of incidents of domestic terror come from white nationalism.
“And that we are really truly facing an environment of fascism and in the United States of America. This type of intimidation at the polls brings us to Jim Crow, it brings us back and hearkens back to a very unique form of American apartheid that is not that long past ago. And we have never fully healed from it. And those wounds threaten to rip right back open if we do not strongly defend democracy in the United States of America,” she said.
This narrative has been worn out by the left in a vain attempt to defend the hapless, high-spending policies of President Joe Biden which have caused inflation to be much worse. Most polls show that Americans just don’t agree with AOC’s narrative and they blame Biden for inflation as we move toward the midterms.
Alongside AOC in the MSNBC Interview with host Chris Hayes was Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md. They were brought together to talk about the rise in political violence across the country, including the recent attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi.
Hayes led the interview with talk about the Pelosi attack and the riot on the Capitol on January 6th. He tried to paint a bipartisan picture of this violence by also talking about the 2017 attack on Rep. Steve Scalise while at a GOP baseball practice, and the assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh. He wanted to present that there wasn’t an ideological monopoly on political violence.
But he did insist that there was more “tolerance” of violence coming from the right and supporters of former President Donald Trump. Hayes made the case that it felt like with Trump supporters there were more excuses for and exhortations for both threats and menacing violence.
Hayes was also the one who brought up the story that Arizona poll watchers have been dressing in tactical gear in the past few days. The panel immediately started talking about this being “voter intimidation” and used it to further the dialogue about the right’s violence.
Ocasio-Cortez interjected that there might be violence on both sides of the aisle, but most was coming from White nationalists. She said that Raskin is the chair and she is the vice-chair of the House Oversight subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and they have seen a vast majority of the incidents of domestic terror coming from these groups.
So if you need a summary, inflation is not Biden’s fault, it’s still those MAGA people destroying the country and bringing in apartheid. Thanks, AOC.
