Whether it’s just plain arrogance or a lack of proper education — or both — New York Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tone deafness regarding her own ignorance about worldly matters and economics is stunning.
Earlier this week, Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to decry POTUS Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency in order to secure funds to continue building walls and physical barriers along portions of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Like the rest of the Democratic Left, Ocasio-Cortez would rather make it easier for cartels to traffic human beings and drugs into our country while inundating our communities with poor migrants than live up to their oaths of office by protecting and defending our country and our people.
But what she said about the wall itself — in particular, what it reminded her of — was incredibly ill-informed.
“No matter how you feel about the wall,” she said, “I think it’s a moral abomination. I think it’s, like, the Berlin Wall.
The stupidity of that statement is astounding.
