Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become widely known for saying goofy, insane things on all sorts of topics, so it’s no surprise that when she opens her mouth something lacking in intelligence pops out for all us to gawk at.
However, her latest statement is up there pretty high amongst the long list of her dumb ideas, so prepare yourself, folks.
AOC wants to dissolve the Department of Homeland Security. You probably already know why.
via CBS News:
During an interview with The New Yorker Radio Hour’s David Remnick, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to blame the Bush administration for initially forming the agency back in 2002 in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11th.
“I feel like we are, at a very, it’s a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence, and in terms of being able to make the argument that we never should’ve created DHS in the early 2000s,” said Ocasio-Cortez. She went on to say that she supported abolishing ICE, a common rallying cry among House Democrats.
“Would you get rid of the Department of Homeland Security, too?” Remnick asked.
“I think so,” she replied. “I think we need to undo a lot of the egregious mistakes that the Bush administration did.”
Ocasio-Cortez cited her recent visit to a border detention facility in El Paso, Texas as grounds for disbanding the agency. She described the conditions in the facility as “horrible” and said she witnessed “some of the most inhumane behavior.”
“It’s not even living…it was the physical manifestation of Trump’s rhetoric and calling migrants animals because that’s how these women were being treated, their hair was falling out, they had sores in their mouths due to the lack of nutrition..the cruelty is the point,” she said.
Once again, it all comes down to the topic of immigration. What is it about this issue that keeps it at the forefront of liberal minds?
Illegals are essential to the plan they have of radically transforming America into a socialist nightmare. They need to flesh out their party and what better way to do that than to adopt a “marginalized” group and pretend to be their savior and give them all kinds of free stuff so they become loyal to you?
Seems like a pretty solid strategy actually.
This is the kind of people we’re up against. The kind who aren’t above transforming an entire group of people into political pawns just so they can gain power over them by pretending to be on their side, just to turn around and oppress them later with the same power they helped them obtain.
