View Full Version : Watch: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Links Her Election Win to the Moon Landing

Democratic socialist and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday (D-NY) compared her upset election win to some of the United States’ most historic accomplishments, including NASA’s first-ever manned moon landing in 1969.

Speaking in support of the “Sunrise Movement,” a grassroots movement aimed at solving economic challenges with environmentally-friendly solutions, Ocasio-Cortez urged Congress to pass legislation to tackle climate change and economic disparity in the U.S.

“This is not just about a Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez said near the steps of Capitol Hill. “This is about a new deal for the United States of America.”

“In every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have,” the progressive newcomer continued.

The incoming congresswoman then cited several benchmark moments in which the U.S. achieved what many believed was “impossible” — including establishing civil rights, landing on the moon, and her own election victory over establishment Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), who she defeated in the Democrat primary in New York’s 14th congressional district on a promise to abolish ICE and cancel all student debt.

She's far from the first Hispanic or female to be elected to Congress. And she's 5, possibly 7 years older than the youngest person who served in the House. So what is historic about her. Is she the stupidest? She does have a decent case for claiming that distinction.

She is loony.

I think you're onto something! O-C is the first Moonbatian-American elected to Congress.

She epitomizes the insanity of the Far Left. Her constituents are some of the dumbest people on Earth.

Participation award mentality. All accomplishments are equal. Therefore, one moonbat convincing enough other moonbats to vote for her is absolutely the same as the decade of research, study, experiments, calculations and risks performed by hundreds of people working toward a couple of common goals, one, reaching the moon because JFK said "git er done" and two, show up the USSR by landing on the moon first. Absolutely identical.
