AOC Claims We Need More Immigrants Due To the ‘Burdens of Capitalism’

Far-left socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) argued that young people aren’t having children due to the “burdens of capitalism,” and as a result, we “need” more immigrants.

“You take a look at it … there are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people under the burdens of capitalism and under – living under a society that’s increasingly concentrating wealth among the rich,” she said.

“We’re not having kids, or we’re not having kids at the same rate.”

“And we actually need immigrant populations to help balance things out,” the New York Democrat added.

Interestingly, she used Japan and South Korea as examples of disastrous capitalism – countries that are neighbors to communist nightmares China and North Korea.

AOC Laments the ‘Burdens of Capitalism’

AOC, who often lives with the burden of ignorance, then suggested immigration is necessary to keep liberal social safety programs afloat.

“We can’t continue to fund Social Security, Medicare, all of this stuff without immigrants and it’s always been that way,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “Don’t act like it’s some new trend or anything like that.”

People aren’t having children due to the ‘burdens of capitalism’ is a super-interesting take, mostly because a good percentage of illegal immigrants are clamoring to cross our borders with their children due to the burdens of AOC’s favorite economic philosophy – socialism.

For instance, a good portion of the illegal immigrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard recently came from Venezuela.

Further adding to the irony is that she made these statements while filming social media videos on her iPhone with a nice pair of AirPods in her ears.

Damn those burdens of capitalism!

No Children Due to Global Warming

AOC has long been an opponent of the ‘burdens of capitalism’ here in America, often demonizing successful business owners as morally corrupt racist slave drivers.

“You made that money off the backs of single mothers and all these people who are literally dying because they can’t afford to live and so no one ever makes a billion dollars,” she has said.

“I’m not here to villainize and to say that billionaires are inherently morally corrupt, but they are, I mean, I think there is a case, but um, but, it’s not to say that, it’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism, always ends in billionaires.”

And she has argued for illegal immigrants to take advantage of economic safety nets meant for legal immigrants and Americans here in the United States.

Just last year she urged illegals immigrants to apply for a child tax credit signed into law by President Joe Biden.

AOC’s rant about people not having children due to the ‘burdens of capitalism’ is a fresh take on her argument that people aren’t having children due to global warming.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she prepared food in front of her 2.5 million followers in a bizarre Instagram video.

“And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

Perhaps that’s why AOC is such a champion of abortion rights – terminating pregnancies due to the burdens of capitalism and global warming seems like a legitimate argument in her mind.

  • AOC instead of pushing for more Illegal Alien invasions, and the teaching of the LGBTQ Lifestyle, should be working to help rebuild the Family unit. Instead of pushing Children to change their sex or sexual preference. With each push of these " Liberal " idea's, the Birth rate in America decreases, thus in order to maintain a Healthy Society, the need to bring in Illegals. The need for teaching true family values, is what they need,not more LGBTQ, and leftist BS .

  • Further proof that AOC is a puppet of the globalists. She has no brains of her own. She is an actor chosen to play the part of a member of Congress by the globalists in a poor district that was easy to commit fraud and place her. She is told what to say most of the time. It's when she goes off-script that we see her for the buffoon she really is.

  • Hey, Stupid: people are struggling under the burden of relentless gvt spending. Inflation would be down, taxes would be lower, and the dollar would be worth more without our insane and immoral national debt.

  • Sometimes I wonder if she's really this dumb or if she just needs the attention. Ironically, my nieces and nephews - all born in the '80s and '90s - are having children because of their ability to be entrepreneurs or have successful free-market careers. Tally will be up to nine next month.

  • First of all, Airhead Of the Century, do you mean 'immigrants' or 'illegal aliens', because, regardless of your Leftist spin, there's a BIG difference between the two.
    Secondly, if Capitalism imposes such a heavy burden, why would you want to invite more people over here to suffer that burden?
    Alexandrita, you're full of mierdita.

  • Let me see if I've got this: AOC says we need to have abortion because we can't afford children but we need illegals to come in and take jobs that we can't fill because we have no children to take them. And we need people to take jobs to pay taxes to subsidize free child care for the children we don't have because of abortion. Therefore illegals to do the jobs that we can't take.
