I was out of town when AOC did her latest IdPol damage, saying the New Deal was "extremely racist". But, even though its late, I felt compelled to speak to it. Here's the pertinent quote from an interview at SXSW:
'The New Deal was an extremely economically racist policy that drew little red lines around black and brown communities and it invested in white America,' the Democratic socialist said during her interview on Saturday evening.
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:
when one can nod or when one can wink.
AOC the Boyfriend...
Maybe one should learn the job in their first month of employment and muffle one's staff?
Oh what the hell.
Its alarming to watch the astrorturf (massive free media) celebrity, AOC, steal the clothes of the 50 year old environmental movement and its ten year old Green New Deal. Naive environmentalists are surprised and delighted that the corporate media is actually reporting on the topic, and do not ask the vital questions of why publicity is given and where AOC is taking the discussion.
Its my opinion that national politics has become hallucinogenic. The corporate media and the political elites do not discuss reality, but rather discuss manufactured nonsense. TPTB have realized that their fake liberal shtick just isn't playing in Peoria anymore. After Obama, people are "not going to get fooled again" by the likes of Harris or Booker or Biden. So, it seems that they decided to make democracy completely irrelevant by making the national political discourse insane.
