Gaffe machine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made her biggest mistake yet
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been heralded as the future of the Democrat Party.
But she has a severe case of foot-in-mouth disease.
And what she said this time will leave you scratching your head.
While speaking to a crowd of Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared global warming to fighting the Nazis in World War II.
She claimed that we must “mobilize our entire economy… in order to get us to 100% renewable energy.”
Democratic Socialist candidate for the House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a video that reaching the goal of 100 percent renewable energy to fight climate change requires the same urgency and mobilization in the United States as it did to fight Nazi Germany during World War II.
Calling Nazi Germany the last “existential threat” the United States has faced, Ocasio-Cortez ignored more recent threats, including radical Islam’s attack on U.S soil that killed almost 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001.
“So when we talk about existential threats — the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II,” Ocasio said in a video filmed at an undated campaign at an unknown location.
It’s convenient to write off Ocasio-Cortez as a laughingstock.
After all, she lacks a basic understanding of capitalism and our nation’s history.
She wants to implement single-payer socialized healthcare.
She’s said that Israel is occupying Palestine.
She’s even claimed the unemployment rate is low because people have to take two jobs.
But the truth is she has real sway in the Democrat Party and her “ideas” could transform America into Venezuela.
If Democrats are ever successful in seizing the reins of power in the future, they could make this all reality.
