Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is “garbage” and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a “racist” vision of the country that “pitted” white working class people against minorities in order “to screw over all working-class Americans.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas.

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said.

“So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”

“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

“It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'”

Asked moments later about the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and the $15 minimum wage, Ocasio-Cortez suggested that America is in decline and that the current state of America is “garbage.”

“I think the thing that is really hard for people to sometimes see is that when we are on this path of a slow erosion and a slow, slow, slow, just like move away from what we’ve always been, we’ll be a hundred miles, you’ll, you know you won’t even realize that you’ve drifted a hundred miles,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So, when someone’s talking about our core, it’s like oh this is radical, but this isn’t radical, this is what we’ve always been.”

“It’s just that now we’ve strayed so far away from what has really made us powerful, and just, and good, and equitable, and productive, and so I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are but where we are is not a good thing,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “And this idea of like 10% better from garbage, is, shouldn’t be what we settle for, it’s like this like it feels like moderate is not a stance it’s just an attitude toward life of like hmmm.”

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez’s appearance at the event came after a tumultuous week for the congresswoman during which she repeatedly came to the defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after Omar made more anti-Semitic remarks last weekend.

While she was defending Omar, Ocasio-Cortez “retweeted a post from a supporter of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which the US has designated a terrorist organization,” The New York Post reported.

The 29-year-old congresswoman also sent out a fundraising email — while she was defending Omar from accusations of anti-Semitism — that accused a pro-Israel group of coming after her and Omar.

    WOW! just wow, how anyone can even follow her ramblings is beyond me. This little girl hasn’t a clue what she is even talking about, and all the “like” she “likes” talks to hear herself talk. She “like” makes sense in her own mind, but “like” she can not make one cohesive intelligent sentence. This is someone who “like” graduated from “like” some prestigious college with “like” high honors? Really????

      Agree, and she is the reason that everything might be garbage. She doesn’t make any sense, with her like and like, etc. can’t believe she went to ANY college.

    Why doesn’t she just move to Venezuela if she thinks America is garbage. It used to be funny watching her make an ass of herself but now it is getting old. Stop giving her the media attention. Hopefully the idiots that voted for her will see how truly stupid she is and will not re-elect her. I am not counting on that. Every time she mentions the word free they will be ok I want that.

    SHE DOES NOT LIKE THIS COUNTRY, THEN WHY DOES SHE NOT LEAVE AND NOT COME BACK. NOBODY WILL STOP HER FROM LEAVING UNLESS THE ALLEGATIONS BEING PROPOSED AGAINST HER ARE FACTUAL. THEN SHE WILL BE INVITED TO A JAIL CELL INSTEAD. DEMOCRATS ARE GETTING STUPIDER AND STUPIDER. ONCE A PROUD PARTY, NOW JUST DISORGANIZED TRASH.

    The state of the Democratic party, that would allow some 7 people including AOC tp Primary out any sensical Dem candidate is what aught to called into question. These ‘7’ were found by their one ‘Manager(campaign manager) via putting out an advertisement calling for people that ‘can act like a politician’ and out of the 10,000 applicants, the only ones chosen by the ‘manager were stupid, ignorant, financial failures… very willing to represent the ‘Manager’ to quickly get rich(AOC is already a millionaire) and the ‘Manager’ is a Socialist of the worst order, believes violence is necessarily part of Socialism taking over. The ‘7″ are nothing but actors, all taking every single talking point and tweet directly from the ‘manager.. the stupid ‘7’are not proposing a thing they haven’t been instructed to propose- hence the stupid ‘7’ are constantly trying to cover for their rants… given to them… by the manager.
    While the DNC is willing to accept any fringe operator to advance the DNC at large, they have now allowed two bit, broke, stupid people and their unified one manager to disrupt the entire Dem party… and the Dems are scared, of the ‘7’, and it is known the operators that were involved with the ‘manager plan for 80 more ‘stupid in 2020 via the same principals.. ‘Primarying establishment Dems with stupid, ignorant candidates just with stage appeal. Blame the party- Dems/DNC for not doing any homework on the ‘Manager, the ‘operators, promising 10 times as many more stupid socialists.

    Was she born in U.S.? She & others trying to change our country into something like one in the middle east where their lifestyle & religion is based, need to go live there. They say they come here for better life.I don’t believe that.They come & DEMAND we allow their beliefs,prayers in school 4? times a day.Won’t acclimate to our country so why not go back to the country that believes their way? They want Sharia law in courts.GOD HELP US. Plus, I believe they are living on our dollars. Now want illegals to vote.Those bills need to be stopped. How can we make that happen?

    Has anyone but me noticed again and again, that her and Omar are always in the center of a bunch of men surrounding them and panting. Has everyone naive enough not to see the hugs and smiles they have for these men! They is the only reason men listen to her and smile is because they are giddy like teenage boys! She is buying her way in! Bitch, both of them

      Lisa Grace – Oh yeah, I’ve noticed it too. They all look like a bunch off bobble heads. Heads moving up and down with those stupid ass grins on their faces. Sheep being led around by their noses not caring where the shepherd takes them. Actually surprised I haven’t seen drool hanging from the corner of their mouths!

    She’s a disgusting human being. And a race baiter Liar.

    “One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens.”

    She’s projecting what she’s doing, as typical of the Left & their Mus lim buddies. She h8s whites, to begin with (as if she’s not white); & wants to wipe out the Middle Class so there’s no one to buffer between her liberal elite 1% benefactors & the poor she wants to control. She pits blacks & whites against each other; with variations to “colored” when she wants to put non-whites above American blacks.

    PLUS, it doesn’t jive that she claims on the one hand that too many are unemployed; & on the other that hundreds of millions of illegals through open borders will help USA. One disagreement, from 2016, is the “CIVIL-RIGHTS COMMISH: BLACKS HAMMERED BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
    ‘Curious’ how illegals have gained at African-Americans’ expense:”

    Reagan did not pit Americans against Minorities but the Democrats are trying there best to turn people against the white race but lets take in context the fact that Whites of America are not full white there is a blend of nationalities. If looking at the white race they are the minorities these days.

    What a lying POS and without a clue. She is calling President Reagan a racist??? AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Harris, and several others are the race baiters. Every time they bring up any color other than White, they use any BS they can make up to make it look like they are made to live in a ghetto and not allowed to work or get educated. Look at yourselves and I ask you how is it there are so many black/brown millionaires and why is the unemployment rate the lowest it’s ever been and that INCLUDES for Blacks and Latinos. Every time AOC comes to the defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar, they are both proving to be racists by their anti-Semitic remarks and hate for JEWS. Piss on all of you.
    WE WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST, COMMUNIST, OR ISLAMIC NATION. DON’T FOOL YOURSELVES.

    Anytime a politician any politician calls any American silly names ie; homophobe islamafobe antisemite, zenaphobe, racists etc. etc. they are telegraphing their selectively in whom they accept as their constituents. We all possess some kind of preferences, who are these fools to pick and choose who is worthy of representation. We are all flawed, it is their job to accept us for who we are and do what is right for our country.

    AOC. Please assembly all that agree with your ideologies and either emigrate to a country with the conditions you desire, or to vacant land to establish a new country. I am certain that a Go Fund Me appeal would result in ample contributions to fund transportation. I am looking forward to the per capital increases of real GDP, tax revenue and wages of at least 40% within the first subsequent year. The U.S. will be able to reduce its per capita budget. Emissions of greenhouse gases will plummet.

    AOC has proven once again, she is a hateful Anti-American Neo-Nazi Democrat.
    Communist Democrats rant & rave about how bad America is but they never talk about what they have done to help the American People because Democrats haven’t done 1 Damn Thing To Help American People!!!!!!
    These empty promises and outright Lies about Free Money & Free Everything is Insanity of Democratic Party.
    AOC is so Delusional that she can’t form a sensible sentence!
    What Drug is AOC ON????? She has a form of Mental Illness!!! Institutionalize this Bitch before she causes more harm to society.

    When the Democrats lose in 2020, AOC will be blamed. Their novelty Rep. will be tossed under the bus like an old rag doll. She is the ignorant puppet for the promoters of this garbage and is awestruck with her new found fame and attention. Maybe this Democratic communist should keep practicing her bartending skills for future use.
