Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is A Millennial’s Millennial

Dana Mathewson, with hat tip to David Dickinson

Here's a good evaluation of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- or She Guevara, as some are styling her -- by John Hirschauer, found on Daily Wire. I hope you appreciate it, and the threat that she (and they... "they" being millennials, of course) pose to today's America.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the hero millennials deserve. Her cocksure ignorance befits a generation that despises its elders, shouts down its superiors and scoffs at its history, all because they’re confident -- no, certain -- that they are more virtuous than you.

When she decried the Israeli "occupation” of Palestine -- whatever that means -- and was subsequently pressed on the subject in a now-infamous PBS interview, she ceded that she’s "not an expert on geopolitics on this issue.” She has given completely incoherent answers when asked how she is going to pay for the multi-trillion dollar entitlement programs she’s proposing, offering little beyond emotive adjectives and the assurance that she has spoken with a "Nobel Prize economist.”

 

That’s cold comfort; to modify Bill Buckley’s formula slightly, someone has to win a Nobel Prize in economics. And if Mark Steyn is right when he says that being a multiculturalist absolves you of knowing anything about other cultures, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s candidacy seems to suggest that being a socialist absolves you of knowing anything at all.

Sock! Pow! Biff! I'd add that knowing nothing makes her just what millennials want, makes her fit right in with them.
