In an interview with The New York Times podcast series, “The Daily,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez, D-N.Y. said she was thankful tens of thousands of Americans were dying from the Wuhan flu.
She’s happy the disease killed so many Americans, she said — because she could score political points for the far-left.
“Government at its best is an instrument to the public and the public’s means of taking care of itself,” she said, “and this pandemic has just exposed [to voters] the fragility of our system.”
“I already hear people telling me, ‘I can’t believe I didn’t see this before. I cannot believe I didn’t see this before,’ and I’m just thankful that people are seeing it now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
In other words, AOC is thankful for thousands of deaths… because it’ll allow her and her Democratic freshman House allies to prove how terrible America is.
For Ocasio-Cortez, coronavirus is a political opportunity.
She’s not alone. House Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C. noted that thousands of Americans dying was a “tremendous opportunity” to advance his liberal agenda.
You can trust the Democrats to be Democrats, even in a time of crisis.
Ocasio-Cortez and her brigade of liberals have made political careers calling America evil… just as President Donald Trump has the country flying high.
They haven’t had anything good thing to say about America… until now.
Now that a deadly virus has infected nearly one million U.S. citizens and destroys our economy, AOC and her allies say they’re finally thankful.
