Ocasio-Cortez says calling the migrant crisis a ‘surge’ is white supremacy, but she should have checked her tweets

Breaking News

Socialist firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) should have checked her own tweets before claiming that the use of the word “surge” is a white supremacist philosophy.

Ocasio-Cortez went off on the use of the term when referring to the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border during an Instagram Live ask-me-anything session on Tuesday.

The question was posted to the screen and read, “Why are you not addressing the border crisis and the kids in cages like you used to?”

“Are you for real?!” she replied emphatically.

Ocasio-Cortez has been criticized by many for appearing to be much more incensed about “kids in cages” at the border during the former Trump administration than the current administration under President Joe Biden.

“Well, first of all, just — gut check. Stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame,” she continued after blaming the migrant crisis on the prison system, trade inequalities, and global warming.

“And that’s a problem, because this is not a surge, these are children,” she added. “And they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded! Which, by the way, is a white supremacist idea philosophy. The idea that if an other is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are.”

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t explain why she was talking about the word “surge” when it wasn’t in the original question, but nevertheless, she also didn’t seem to think that using the same word would be problematic when she used it in reference to voters.

“The hoarding of wealth by the few is coming at the cost of peoples’ lives. The only way we change is with a massive surge of *new* voters at the polls,’ she tweeted in 2019 in reference to elections in the United Kingdom.

It was not immediately clear if Ocasio-Cortez was using the word in a “militaristic frame” when referring to new voters, or whether she was also guilty of applying “white supremacist idea philosophy.”

  1. I had always liked the “even a broken clock is right twice a day” phrase. AOC has proven that she can’t even be related to a broken clock. I can’t believe some of the stupid statements she makes, I believe, she believes everything she says. There isn’t a gun on Earth as dangerous as she is.

  2. Cortez Is nothing more then a big mouth socialist ASSHOLE. She hates America, she hates the American people,she will do whatever she can to destroy this country even in her own district she stopped Amazon from coming in that would’ve created many jobs and existing businesses in her district would’ve prospered. She should go back to her true profession tending bar and going under the table and sucking off the patrons at least that would temporarily stop the propaganda that comes out of her mouth

  3. And anyone who refers to Jan. 6 as an “incursion” is also using military jargon and should be equally condemned.

    Except that surge is not limited to military thinking. Either that or all those tech people who tell me that I should use a surge protector for my computer are promoting anti-immigrant bigotry.

  4. We gotta give the bargirl credit for providing some comic relief during the Red State CV-19 lock-downs. Things have gotten pretty boring now that the MSM haven’t TDS to keep them occupied and blathering…

  5. She forgot to mention racism in her rant. She won’t down to the border and scream and cry at an empty parking lot because the lots are full of cages with kids. Why anyone will listen to her is beyond me and makes me feel stupid by reading this.

  6. Every time I hear her voice, it reminds me of chalk screeching on a blackboard or a rake dragging across a sidewalk. She acts so wise and intelligent, but lacks the mental maturity and world experiences to give any kind of advice on any subject. What a mental midget. I’m glad she doesn’t represent me.

  7. surge protector for your computer AOC? can you even tell if you had a POWER surge you MORON? president BRAINDEAD invited the welfare BUMS. did you think the border would be EMPTY?new York state is REALLY going down the drain to have elected you.was your election rigged too?
