Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praised her generation’s “radical acceptance” on social media this week; saying “bada**” millennials are more “informed than their predecessors.”
“I think they’re profoundly courageous, because they’re willing to puncture more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes struggle to have,” said AOC.
“I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets,” she said. “How ’bout that?

“Young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors… they actually take time to read and understand our [world] history.”

Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows earlier this week; posting a bizarre rant regarding climate change while preparing instant macaroni and cheese.
“Even while I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning just consumed about climate change. I’m 29-years-old. I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policy maker and potentially have a family in the time of climate change,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“It really freaks me out, and it can be really, really scary… Our glaciers are melting, our sea levels are rising, I’m scared too about the world that I’m going to be living in. I sometimes fear what we’re going to be living with when I’m 40, 50, 60 years old,” she added.

“Alright everyone, it’s been a minute, we’re coming to you live from the Electoral College… Many votes here as you can see. A very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I can’t think of any other way, can you?” quipped Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

“Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as apposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally,” she states.
“Could you image if we had this kind democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group?” she asks. “If we weighed, for example, black and indigenous voters more because of unfairness?”
NOT A DRILL: AOC Discovers Her Own ‘Terrifying’ Garbage Disposal, Says ‘I Don’t Know What It’s For’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows across the country this week; posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Green New Deal’ this Memorial Day weekend; publishing the legislation’s “five principles” months after the bill failed to secure a single vote.
“5 Principles in the Green New Deal: 1. Go Big 2. Be Specific 3. Set Deadlines 4. Let Them Sue (aka, “Don’t Flinch”) 5. Make Floors, Not Ceilings,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called AOC’s ‘New Deal’ to a full Senate vote months ago; where it failed to secure a single “Yes” vote despite receiving widespread support from a handful of Democratic presidential hopefuls.
Three Senators -Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, and Independent Angus King- joined Republicans in voting against the measure as all other Democrats voted “present.”
“Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others. McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing. The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change?” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez after the lop-sided vote.

“This should not be a partisan issue,” said the Democratic-Socialist lawmaker. “This is about our constituents and all of their lives.”
Despite the vote disaster, Ocasio-Cortez routinely calls the legislation a “success.”
“The #GreenNewDeal, as much as GOP hiss, scream, storytell & cry about it, has forced even the most entrenched Tea Partiers into publicly abandoning their climate denial stance. The reason they’re so focused on discrediting the GND is because it’s a winning policy,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
