Ocasio-Cortez Says U.S. ‘Not An Advanced Society’

While campaigning for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in Los Angeles Saturday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the United States is “not an advanced society” and is turning into a fascist country.

‘What we are living in now is not an advanced society’

“Establishing a loving society in the United States of America” isn’t an “irrational, overly feeling, sympathetic statement,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Instead, it’s part of an ongoing mission to achieve “an advanced society,” she argued.

Her comments were regurgitations of remarks made by Harvard University professor and fellow Sanders supporter Cornel West.

“What we are living in now is not an advanced society,” the extreme left Democrat insisted. Then she decried the “fascism that we’re evolving into” due to Donald Trump’s presidency.

The congresswoman claimed that Sanders’ campaign was “a movement that has been decades in the making” that stood up for the working class and against elites.

‘We can’t go back to the way things were before’

“We can’t go back to the way things were before, because the way thing were before is how we got to where we are now. We cannot go back to a world where the rich are put first and working people are put last in Washington day in and day out,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“I go into work all the time and I hear people saying, ‘What will my donors think?’” she said, in what seemed like a barb against 2020 candidate Democratic Pete Buttigieg, who has faced criticism for holding an upscale fundraiser that his fellow White House contender Elizabeth Warren described as a wine cave.

“I see that billionaires get members of Congress on speed dial and waitresses don’t, okay? There’s a difference,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

What Societies Would AOC Consider Advanced?

Ocasio-Cortez is obviously comfortable bashing America, but since she considers the U.S. so backward, what societies does the socialist congresswoman consider “advanced?”

Venezuela? Cuba?

Because all of those countries are socialist. Both Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders have defended or deflected  from tough questions about these countries authoritarian regimes.

Would the average Venezuelan or Cuban citizen consider their countries more advanced than the United States?

These questions answer themselves. They are obvious things Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should probably think about before she makes such foolish statements about the United States again.
