It has been a month since I wrote an article that focused on something idiotic uttered by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
This has been a self-imposed moratorium. She has provided a wealth of material to write about … However, stories about her get repetitive. I could literally write a story about her every day. She is the gift that keeps on giving. That is the reason I have stayed away from her — a sort of challenge to myself to write about different subjects.
However, the moratorium ends right now!
The brilliant Cortez opined on the crisis at the southern border. She tweeted: “The far Right loves to drum up fear and resistance to immigrants. But have you ever noticed they never talk about what’s causing people to flee their homes in the first place? Perhaps that’s bc they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration: Climate change.”
Of course, the migrant crisis has been caused by climate change. Just another reason we need her “Green New Deal.”
When I last left AOC, she was talking about not having children to save the planet.
In an Instagram livestream, Cortez said: “Basically, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question: Is it okay to still have children?”
If we passed the “Green New Deal,” couples wouldn’t be faced with such a difficult decision. Her plan to eliminate all cars, planes, and boats would prevent global catastrophe.
Does she ever listen to what comes out of her mouth?
AOC is overlooking one major reason why we have an influx of illegal aliens: They come from “sh*thole countries.”
Last year, President Trump was accused of racism for stating a fact about how impoverished the countries are that they come from.
He was talking with senators about protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.
Labeling those countries as “sh*tholes” might be inarticulate, but who could deny those countries are poor and violent.
Immigration to America only confirms how great of a country America is.
These immigrants see America as a land of opportunity for themselves and their families.
America has a stable government with the largest economy in the world. Rule of law is far better here than the countries from which they are emigrating from.
Take Central America for example: Countries in the region have high rates of violent crime and extreme poverty.
El Salvador is the home of MS-13 gang members and has one of the highest murder rates in the world.
Nearly two-thirds of the Honduran population lives in poverty.
On our southern border, murder is a common occurrence. In the list of the top 50 most dangerous cities, 12 of them are in Mexico.
Latin America is the most dangerous region in the world: Political unrest, gang violence, extreme poverty, and joblessness are all part of life in the region.
Someone tell AOC that these immigrants are fleeing dangerous countries to come to America. It is because of these dangers, and not climate change, that they are coming here.
Despite all the problems in this country, America remains the top destination for immigrants. All we hear in the foreign press is how horrible the U.S. is. However, when their lives are at risk, they all come here.
The U.S. is still the last bastion of freedom in the world.
