Elder Patriot’s Opinion – Democrats infatuation with freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has exposed the incredible hypocrisy of their party. There isn’t a problem that they won’t try exploiting/exacerbating in order to discredit President Trump and regain power.
No matter who gets hurt along the way.
Last night, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) appeared with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum where he took the opportunity to call out that hypocrisy while talking about the radical Marxist representative from N.Y.:
“I realize that she thinks socialism and illegal immigration and abortion are moral goods, but we’ve got a huge problem we are trying to solve here. The congresswoman has basically demagogued the whole thing and I’ve just about concluded she’s more famous than wise.”
“I think the bill to give more money to try to improve conditions in the House is being held together by spit. But Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is opposing the bill.”
“The hypocrisy is breathtaking.”
“On the one hand, she says you are running a concentration camp, and then she refuses to provide the president with the money to enlarge the facilities.”
Kennedy went on to say: “Let me be frank,” Kennedy said. “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez … someone needs to tell her that the voices in her head are not real. She says that the men and women of our border patrol and our authorities are intentionally running concentration camps on the southern border. She needs to go to the Holocaust Museum and see what a concentration camp is.”
Sen. Kennedy’s criticism of AOC came a day after President Trump’s advisor, Kellyanne Conway chastised Rep. Ocasio-Cortez for her hypocrisy.
Kellyanne’s response to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez came after seeing Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, the President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, after having toured the same facilities, say he did not witness the deplorable conditions Ocasio-Cortez described.
“I read the reports, saw the news clips. I just wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system. To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse. Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.”
“We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities.”
The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference is the world’s largest Hispanic Christian organization. Their takeaway was entirely contrary to AOC’s radical criticism of the CBP and its agents.
Ocasio-Cortez is appealing to the worst elements of the Democratic Party – those who do nothing and blame others for their plight, than actually get off their asses and fix things.
With the Democratic Party moving in the direction of AOC it appears America is left with only one party looking out for the interests of hard working American contributors. And even with the Republicans only sometimes.
