If it’s a new week, then there must be some new insane comments from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. But I warn you, you might feel your I.Q. dropping just from reading this.
Like her claim that the surge in crime in New York City is due to unemployed people having to “shoplift some bread” to feed their families. That surge includes 44 shootings and eight fatalities over the Fourth of July weekend, and 15 shootings in 15 hours on Saturday alone. Those are some heavily-armed shoplifters!
She’s also complained that Mayor DeBlasio’s call to cut $1.5 billion from the police budget doesn’t go far enough; that it can’t just be budget tricks that move spending around or reduce overtime pay. No, cutting the police budget is not effective if it does not result in the reduced presence of law enforcement...during a major surge in crime…including an epidemic of shootings. Those can only be solved by getting rid of the police entirely. While they’re at it, maybe New York should eliminate fires by getting rid of the Fire Department.
And just to be mischievous, here’s AOC flashing a double “white supremacy” finger sign. Aren't regular people forced out of their jobs for doing this?
