New York Representative and thinker of thoughts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is so puzzling to us.

Her critics are overtly harsh –  constantly referring to her as “stupid,” “a moron,” and/or “the dumbest woman in Congress.” And yet, for some inexplicable reason, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez absolutely INSISTS upon validating her critics’ opinion of her.

Example Of AOC’s Staggering Lack Of Intelligence #6,345,411: “Referring To The Border Crisis As A Migrant ‘Surge’ Is Racist.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that referring to the rise in border crossings over the past few months as a “surge” or “invasion” is white supremacy.

“So much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation, about immigration, is driven by people who could not care less about immigrants,” AOC said in a hopeless attempt to form coherent sentences on Instagram. “So often, people want to say, ‘Why aren’t you talking about the border crisis?’ or ‘Why aren’t you talking about it in this way?’ Well, we’re talking about it, they just don’t like how we’re talking about it.”

She continued: “It’s not a border crisis. It’s an imperialism crisis, it’s a climate crisis, it’s a trade crisis, and also, it’s a carceral crisis,” she added, arguing that the US’ foreign policy legacy in Central America, its trade policies, and its contributions to global climate change have disproportionately affected the global South.

“Anyone who’s using the word ‘surge’ around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame. And that’s a problem. Because this is not a surge, these are children,” she said. “And they are not insurgents. And we are not being invaded, which, by the way, is a white supremacist idea, philosophy, the idea that if an ‘other’ is coming in the population, that this is an invasion of who we are.”

In fairness to AOC, she cares passionately about migrant children…

That’s why she hasn’t bothered to visit any of the border facilities since President Biden was sworn into office.

Hey, AOC, come on down to the border for a visit.

They’re your cages now, Congresswoman.
