Oh Nancy. Now this?
Welcome to Boehnerville.
The Beat keeps on a comin
AOC "draws a bigger audience than any Democrat 2020 hopeful"
After Omar schooled you a day or so ago, "Hope and Change was a mirage", now outa Brooklyn comes:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez uses her SXSW talk to label FDR's New Deal 'racist' compared to her 'Green New Deal' and protests minorities being treated like 'garbage' - as she draws a bigger audience than any Democrat 2020 hopeful
It is Austin y'all, so there's that.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drew massive crowds at SXSW
The ballroom and overflow rooms were packed to the gills to hear her
She spent much of her talk decrying the treatment of minorities
'This idea of like 10 percent better than garbage shouldn't be something we settle for,' said the freshman Democratic congresswoman from New York
And there was a surprise during the Q&A session when Bill Nye the Science Guy came up to ask her a question, which earned a roar of delight from the crowd
But her bigger message was one of hope, inclusion and equality, particularly for blacks and latinos.
She slammed the treatment of minorities throughout recent American history from Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, which she claimed was racist, to Ronald Reagan's treatment of them.
She decried the idea of incrementalism, a belief in change via small steps, and said it took big sweeping ideas to make a difference.
'This idea of like 10 percent better than garbage shouldn't be something we settle for,' she said.
The crowd cheered her on.
Nancy, Steny, James, Chuckie, Durbin, et al. She and her cohorts are killing your myths. About time.
Time to retire?
