Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Praises Millennial’s as ‘More Informed,’ Research Shows the Opposite

New York’s dimmest Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, recently insisted that Millennials are “more informed” than previous generations. But research shows exactly the opposite, that millennials have little grasp of history or civics.

Per the Daily Caller:

Ocasio-Cortez was asked by a fan whether she thought young people were “delicate” during an Instagram live stream Tuesday night. She responded “No! I don’t think they’re too delicate at all. I think that…they’re badass.”

“I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors. Um, I think that they are more sensitive in a positive way, in that they actually care about other people’s experiences and lives.”

AOC also said that the “radical acceptance” exhibited by millennials is just so darn cool…

AOC added that the millennials are great because they are willing to “go to the streets” to protest stuff.

The self-professed democratic socialist also said she is afraid of monsters coming from the melting arctic ice.

Like, totally, dude.

Unfortunately for AOC, actual studies show that as a group, millennial’s don’t have the first clue about American history, civics, and government. So, in fact, they know far, far less than previous generations.

A recent study on history found that only the residents of one state were able to pass a simply American history test — and that state did so only barely.

The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation surveyed 41,000 Americans in all 50 states and Washington, DC, and found that only the citizens of Vermont passed, but only by 53 percent.

“Most disturbingly, the results show that only 27 percent of those under the age of 45 across the country demonstrate a basic knowledge of American history. And only four in 10 Americans passed the exam,” the New York Post recently reported.

“Unfortunately, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation has validated what studies have shown for a century: Americans don’t possess the history knowledge they need to be informed and engaged citizens,” foundation president Arthur Levine said in a statement.

So much for AOC’s proclamations about how smart Millennials are.
