RUSH: The It-Girl of the Democrat Party who’s going to be one of 200-some-odd votes. She’s going to be, in terms of power in the House of Representatives, a nonfactor, except the media is going to try to build her up. I’m speaking, of course, about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who doesn’t even know what the three branches of government are, Dawn. She doesn’t even know what the three branches of government are!
She revealed over the weekend she’s got no idea. This was during a conference call with prospective far left political candidates. And, by the way, she has acknowledged exactly what I predicted. She’s going after the dinosaurs. She is putting together a group of young Millennial bucks in the Democrat Party, uber-socialists, and they’re gonna try to shove the Pelosis and the Steny Hoyers and all the rest of them out of the way. They’re not far left enough, they’re not radical enough, and they’ve gotta be gone.
And she literally thinks that she is going to have the power to build this movement in the House that’s gonna drive these dinosaurs out. She said, “If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather all three chambers of government, the presidency, the Senate, and the House.” She said these words on Saturday on a call with Justice Democrats. This word “justice.” You know, whenever you hear that, folks, run for the hills.
The pope is now talking about justice. Justice is a left-wing concept which equals at its root, wealth redistribution, but it’s far worse. But it’s not justice in the way you think, fairness and equality before the law. The pope is talking about there needs to be more justice in the world, especially for migrants. The pope! I know some Catholics, they stopped going to church. They can’t handle what they’re hearing anymore, to the extent the pope is influencing places. It’s amazing, the left, they just destroy everything they touch! They ruin every institution they get hold of.
Anyway, of course, the three branches of government, not the chambers, are the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. But to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, three chambers of government are the presidency, the Senate, and the House. Her objective is to win control of all three, and they don’t have that now so they’ve gotta work really, really hard. She urged people to join the Justice Democrats. I guess it’s the name of a group. Justice Democrats, #OurTime campaign. It’s a hashtag. To help them identify Democrat House incumbents who are demographically and ideologically out of touch with their districts like Joe Crowley was in his.
You know, some old doofus, machine Democrat out of touch with the youth of America. So Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comes in and on a very low turn-out day and wipes him out. Now she’s urging this group to band together to do the same thing to other such Jurassic Park members of the Democrat Party. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed a campaign that says people cannot represent those who are demographically different than they are.
Yeah, these are the people that talk about diversity! They’re demanding diversity! They want to throw diversity at everybody and they define diversity by virtue of the color of somebody’s skin or whether or not they had weird sexual proclivities or whatever. That’s diversity. We have to accept it. Yet here she is saying that they need to help identify Democrat House incumbents demographically and ideologically out of touch with their district. Meaning, an old white guy simply cannot represent a district with young Millennials who may tend to be Hispanic. It just can’t happen.
This isn’t anything new. Back during the Year of the Woman, which was at some point back in the nineties, and this is one of the precursors to the #MeToo movement. Some Democrat was sexually harassing women, and so women band together in the Year of the Woman, they got elected to the Senate, a bunch of them. And the idea was that only women can represent women.
Men can’t represent anybody because men are the power structure and they’re biased and they’re against anybody. So only women can represent women. Only African-Americans can represent blacks. Only Latinos can represent Latinos and so forth. That’s what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez happens to be saying here.
I thought we were beautiful because of our gorgeous mosaic of diverse skin colors and sexual proclivities and orientations. Well, anyway, she was called out on this. “Ocasio-Cortez Plays Victim After Taking Heat for Flubbing the Three Branches of Government.” It’s a website here called by BizPac Review. “For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. [She] has a knack for making confusing statements, or ‘word slips,’ as she calls them, and is real [sic] quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. …
“The ‘word slip’ was made while … on a Justice Democrats strategy call, where she encouraged attendees to primary incumbent Democrats who are” old and get rid of ’em. She said (impression), “Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd [sic], they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to health care.”
That’s her answer to getting the three branches of government wrong. I read it to you verbatim. She’s now playing the victim. Because she wants health care for everybody, these mean Republicans are focusing on her “word slips.” Everybody knew what she meant, she says. Well, except, no, she didn’t know what she meant. She said, “If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House…”
This is like a cardiologist talking about the heart’s four “branches.”
The heart has four chambers: The right atrium and ventricle and the left atrium and ventricle.
It’s Anatomy 101 just like knowing the three branches of government — legislative, executive, and judicial — is Civics 101. She doesn’t know it. This woman has an economics degree from the University of Boston or Boston University, whichever; she doesn’t know a thing about economics. This is American public education at work: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She thinks the Senate and the House are separate chambers? You know, she’s a former bartender. You gotta wonder she knows the difference between scotch, bourbon, and whisky. You know, the three chambers of liquor.
