Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Compares Her Election Victory to the Moon Landing, Civil Rights Movement


Democratic socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to landing on the moon, the establishment of civil rights, and wiring America for electricity saying ‘we’ve done what we thought was impossible.’

“This is not just about a Green New Deal, this is about a new deal for the United States of America,” she said. “Because in every moment where 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 could be capable of saving ourselves, we have.”

“We’ve done what we thought was impossible,” she told the gathered crowd. “We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Friday compared her 2018 election victory to American accomplishments such as the moon landing and the establishment of civil rights.

During a press conference meant to publicize her support of a Green New Deal, a nebulous government spending plan promoting ideas backed by lawmakers like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), Ocasio-Cortez equated Democratic elections victories like her own with other seemingly “impossible” U.S. achievements. More

This young woman is a train wreck in politics. No, wait, she’s just a train wreck. It’s embarrassing what comes out of her mouth.

Twitter responds:

Wow, what a real trailblazer! At only 29 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stands to unseat Nancy Pelosi as the “most moronic democrat ever elected.”
