    turbinetree (12,883 posts) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scorches Kris Kobach at Census hearing: 'I want to know about the racism'

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday lambasted the Trump administration and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach for a plot to include a citizenship question on the census.

    At a House Oversight hearing, Ocasio-Cortez demanded to get to the bottom of how the Trump administration short-circuited the process of creating a census so that the citizenship question could be included.

    “The Census is a constitutionally mandated operation that we are required to implement every 10 years,” she told the committee. “Any change to the census — the addition of a question — usually takes five years of a process to make sure that it is vetted, that every word has been tested, to make sure that it is effective because it is one of the most important things that we do.”

    According to the congresswoman, more than two years were “shaved off” the census process.

    Democrats think that we need 5 years to vet a question that has been on the census almost every year before 1950.

    How hard is it to understand the question - "Are you a US citizen?" Just how many ways can it be asked?

    Democrats, including AOC come across as dumber than a box of rocks - or jack*sses who know that their gig might be up given what we might learn from the results of the question.

    1. Two things that proves AOC is awesome..........

    1. The quality of her questions - they get to the heart of the matter and ask for clear explanations for what happened.

    2. She REALLY PISSES OFF the Repugs and WingNuts!

    2. I so want her to run for President as soon as she's old enough.
    From the article:

    “I want to know why people like Kris Kobach with a documented history, a resume of voter suppression techniques in the state of Kansas,” she continued, “I want to know why folks like that have their fingerprints all over the most sensitive Census operations that we have.”



    “I want to know about corruption,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “I want to know about the racism and the very disturbing history that we’re seeing here.”
    Of course Democrats label everything that makes it harder for Democrats to cheat and illegal immigrants to vote "voter suppression".

    1. I cannot believe there are still people who openly support her, let alone see her as "Awesome," after how many times she has proven herself to be a complete idiot. Even for the DUmmies, that's surprising.
    2. All her "Questions" do are baselessly accuse those who disagree with her of racism, baselessly accuse those who disagree with her of sexism, and baselessly accuse those who disagree with her of being pawns of evil corporate boogeymen.
    3. The only things about her that "Piss (me) off" are her brainless arrogance (Arrogant people have always been one of my pet peeves, her narcissism puts Trump to shame in comparison), her relentless playing of the race and gender cards that with each use further weakens the definition of what constitutes racial or gender prejudice, how many jobs she's already cost New Yorkers through her role in the Amazon debacle, her attempting to push forward a bit of legislation that economic and environmental experts agree would completely bankrupt America if approved and implemented (The Green New Deal), and her attempting to advance in America a system of government which has resulted in a terrifying multitude of human rights violations and the rises to power of some of the worst dictators in human history everywhere it has so far been implemented (Socialism). I'd say all of those are perfectly valid things to be pissed off about.
    4. However, to continue point #3, I feel more amusement from her than anger. She has provided us with a LOT of unintentional humor as hardly a week goes by without her saying or doing something unbelievably stupid. She's like the living embodiment of all those made- for- TV B- movies Syfy puts out in that respect.

    Me too, assuming that she hasn't either been voted out of office in disgrace or imprisoned for her shady financial dealings by that point. It'll provide us with a guaranteed win for another Republican president and lots more unintentional humor before that. This is a woman who's too cowardly to even debate Ben Shapiro, even when he offered her $10,000 to do so; How do you think she'll fare at presidential debates with other candidates?

    I'll say that AoC has this going for her, she's amazingly confident in her absolute and laughable cluelessness.

    Another observation I have:
    " PoindexterOglethorpe (9,821 posts)

    2. I so want her to run for President as soon as she's old enough."

    In the last week or so, AOC has whined and complained about how she and her fellow Representatives should get pay raises, even as many of her fellow House Dems who are on the House Judiciary Committee were noticeably absent from the recent Committee hearing in which Jon Stewart (In probably the only thing he's ever done that I'd openly applaud him for) spoke out in opposition to proposed cuts to the financial compensation benefits offered to 9/11 first responders.
    Does anyone in their right mind believe that people who could be so heartless and callous towards the heroes who suffered so much to help save lives on 9/11 should get a raise? If anything, they should get a pay cut to help raise the necessary funds for the 9/11 first responders.
    For that matter, does anyone in their right mind feel that someone who demands pay raises for such people would make a good POTUS?

    Kobach should have handed her a mirror.

    BTW, those assholes at DU are at it again ...

    " I'm not Far Left."

    They're ones going off on how Socialism will save our souls.

    If AOC is one they're banking their money, the Democrats are fucked.
