AOC is at it again, this time blasting the US of A as “garbage.” She followed with an attack on President Reagan for being a “racist,” arguing that his vision of America “pitted” the white working class against minorities “to screw over all working-class Americans.” She criticized Reaganism for its opposition to “welfare queens” or what she perceives as “essentially black women.” Clearly, the irony of her remarks went over her head. Memo to AOC: class and race-based warfare found their most recent genesis in the spectacular twin failures of LBJ’s Great Society and War on Poverty. So much for big government socialism “solutions.”

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is “garbage” and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a “racist” vision of the country that “pitted” white working class people against minorities in order “to screw over all working-class Americans.”
Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas.
“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”
