We have seen how the left is trying to use this emergency to push for funding for sanctuary cities, to force the government to give stimulus checks to illegals. Still, no one has advanced this emergency for political gain as far as AOC, and her friends from the far-left have.
Lately, all we have heard from AOC, Ilhan and others is that this is showing a need for a radical transformation of this nation, but only one that is transformed into the communist state they are all demanding.
For some reason there is a disconnect here, it seems that they are either unwilling or unable to understand, America does not want this, they have shown in polling an overwhelming rejection of socialism, this is why Bernie keeps running out of steam. While his ideas may sound great on paper, other then the youth, we understand there is a vast leap from ideas in abstract and ones in reality.
In videos posted Thursday night by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Omar, D-Minn., suggested a radical transformation of significant parts of the American economy that are essential for fighting the effects of the coronavirus.
After complaining that America’s “systemic priorities” are all wrong, AOC said, “We have to start demanding and organizing from the bottom up – from grassroots movements, from nurses to warehouse workers to grocery store employees to the halls of Congress, demanding that we strip profit motive out of our decisions and reprioritize for the public good and the health of everyday people.”
We have the old mouth for the socialist in America, Noam Chomsky, in typical liberal manner ignores the fact that States refused to stock up on emergency supplies, then tried in his next breath to give credit to Obama. When facts are not there to support your claims, socialist and Democrats then turn to their next best thing, they make up facts.
What these far-leftist actors are refusing to acknowledge is that in places like New York, where the pandemic has hit the hardest, a month ago their leaders were telling their people not to stay home, go to parades, movies and gather in bars, the very place that this virus could so quickly spread.
The deaths, while high, seem to be overinflated, anyone suffering from other afflictions, if they pass away during the time of the epidemic, medical authorities are pressured to report these deaths to be a result of the virus, even if there are little signs that this is what caused the death.
If you look at fatalities a month before, then compare them to today, you find a significant drop off of cancer deaths, heart-related deaths, yet the number of COVID-19 deaths has gone up. It is almost like someone is trying to make this seem worse then it is to blame the president and this government for it.
While the left is blaming Trump for this, AOC and others are using this to try to force socialism on the rest of the nation. Progressives are demanding state control of all healthcare, to privatize it, one needs to go to Europe to see where this was not such a good idea.
Italy, which is one of the hardest hit, lack of planning by the government, with a socialized healthcare system, yet they have because of terrible central planning have decided they will only give end of life comfort to people over 70, yet this is what AOC, Ilhan, and others from the socialist left are demanding we bring to America. They want us to believe a government that could not even get its website for Obamacare right. They want us to think they would somehow, as if by magic, create a utopia of health in America.
