Ocasio-Cortez: Getting rid of Trump won’t solve the problem of the radicalized army who voted for him

Another day, another target on the backs of conservatives.

AOC is back to work trying to hang labels like “radicalized” and “racist” on Trump voters. Her most recent tweets are a call to action for her socialist justice warriors.

Whether President Trump stays or goes, whether he’s impeached or voted out of office in 2020, Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY wants more far-reaching changes in America than just a change at the top.

On Sunday, AOC put out multiple tweets (or was it her handlers?). First:

Just gotta’ say, it’s good to see that the ultra-liberal Takei is at least subconsciously coming to terms with the fact that he and his ilk have some issues. Serious ones.

As for AOC, those handy political buzzwords that no one can argue with … “racism” and “corruption” … almost makes her spiel palatable if you don’t know what she is about. But “income inequality” and “willingness to excuse bigotry” helps you get where you need to go with this unapologetic Marxist who wants nothing short of revolution.

Bigotry is supposedly not anybody’s platform plank … unless we count the leftist mantra that Christians, Jews, and conservatives are literally deplorable and that the “Trump cult” must be cleansed from the earth.

Income inequality? Let’s be clear what that means. AOC and her followers are enthusiastically pushing for governmental seizures of wealth and property to be redistributed among the proletariat. That would start via extremely high tax rates for upper income classes. From there, reparations would be a next step as would governmental control of businesses and industries. Post-apocalyptic images of inner-city Detroit come to mind, only the AOC vision would apply this nationwide in short order.

Ocasio-Cortez continued with another tweet:

What can we say about this? … “online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified+reanimated.” For almost all conservatives, real life has not changed much … not for the last several years, not for the last few decades. We are who we are because of how we were raised.

The tweet or post or online article has yet to be written that can change grown-ups’ minds the way AOC seems to believe can happen.

Who knew that, as we grew up being the best we could be, our own kids would call us radicals because of our decency and work ethic?

And an immediate follow-up:

“Uncomfortable moments” with those we disagree … means confrontation, not dialogue.

It’s obvious that this is where we are as a nation and what our future holds. AOC’s radical liberal socialist views are in line with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and are being embraced by a significant portion of the population.

At the same time, the idea of socialism as a replacement for Constitutional freedoms and capitalism in America is firing up the conservative base. “Uncomfortable” may be an understated description of what lies ahead.
