True to the nature of communist/socialist “thinking,” newly minted Congresscritter from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said outright that precise facts don’t really matter. What does is the moral right.
The 29-year-old bartender turned socialist politician made the remarks in an interview with Anderson Cooper on CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”
“If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” Ocasio-Cortez said after Cooper highlighted how The Washington Post has repeatedly called out her false claims. “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”
Ignoring the reality that taking from the wealthy to give to the poor by gunpoint is not a moral right, but very much a moral wrong, Ocasio-Cortez seems to be reacting to the fact checkers calling her out on her claims.
Ocasio-Cortez’s assertion that the fact checkers are just blowing up “one figure here or one word there,” is not accurate. She has repeatedly shown a lack of understanding on many important issues, including how she plans to pay for the $40 trillion in far-left big government programs she supports, which she failed to answer during the interview.
Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler weighed in on her comment, writing: “Sorry, not the right answer.”
When a reporter from the Washington Post calls a communist out for lack of facts, one can guarantee that the facts are just plain wrong. Kessler’s tweet was followed by quite a number of fellow media personalities all agreeing with him, and calling out Ocasio-Cortez on more than just how to pay for big government programs, but the ridiculous notion she floated last week that Republicans want to outlaw fun seeing as how her dancing was “scandalous.”
Honestly, the delusions never seem to stop with her.
Sorry, not the right answer. https://t.co/aqMADobOvJ
