Alinsky Rule 5 Post 39
A new, young, vibrant leader in the Democrat Party, 28-year old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was exalting the role of her party in American history when, while speaking before a Networks Nation gathering, she said,
“We are the party of King, of Roosevelt, of the ones who went to the moon. Who electrified this nation. Who accomplish the great successes and crown jewels of our society.”
If she meant that Edison was a Democrat, good luck proving that. And she forgets, if she ever knew, that King never aligned with any political party, and that Nixon was President when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon. Putting that all aside – her comments brought cheers of pride and applause of approval from the gathering anyway. It’s the silly season, folks.
The Democrat Party candidate for the 14th Congressional District of New York has risen to stardom in her party since her stunning victory over somnolent Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley in a primary contest leading to the November 2018 midterm-election.
Several wealthy sources, who after the Networks Nation event attended a private gathering in the celebrity party room of a 5-Star restaurant, reported that Ocasio-Cortez listed other instances of Alexandria’s Democrats in American History (DAH) jewels.
On the condition their identities remaining anonymous, those sources state that she recited the following examples of “Democrats Using Maximum Brilliance”.
- The Ford Foundation, that today generously helps fund progressive projects, provided the start-up money for the Ford Motor Company.
- Former Vice President Al Gore invented the internet after losing to George W. Bush.
- The FDR administration sponsored the invention of the radio in order to provide a means to disseminate the President’s fireside chats across the nation.
- Orville and Wilbur Wright – the “Wright Brothers” of aeronautical fame – were both fund-raisers for the late Democrat Senator from Ohio, John Glenn, who didn’t go to the moon, but did help pave the way.
- Ocasio-Cortez said it was really the Democrats who battled the Ku Klux Klan in the Post-Civil War Reconstruction South in order to protect the freed slaves.
Also, during the exclusive, by-invitation-only, fund-raising event, reliable sources report that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave a near complete run-down of her intentions for future congressional legislative initiatives including, but not limited to:
- Free healthcare for everyone within the U.S. border, as well as relatives visiting from other countries, or living there
- Free dentalcare for same as above
- Free psychiatric care, too
- Free Veterinarian care for owned and homeless animals
- Free feminine and masculine products for those who self-identify respectively, and a diverse package for those with variable and/or indeterminate gender self-identification
- Free phone, television, microwave and food
- Jobs for all, and, for those do not want to work, a living unearned wage
- Free transportation for all (public, private vehicle, Uber, train, subway, horseback, etc.)
- Free power (electricity, wind, solar, wood and/or cow chips for burning)
- Three months a year vacation for all employed – 12 for the unemployed
- Four years of maternity leave, and then free pre-school daycare till school age
- Of course, free college at any school of the student’s choice
- All existing college tuition loans paid-off by the federal government
After high school (2003-2007), Ocasio-Cortez attended Boston University, during which she was an intern in the immigration office of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy.
She graduated cum laude from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations.
After college, Ocasio-Cortez moved back to the Bronx, where she worked as a bartender in Manhattan and as a waitress in a Mexican restaurant specializing in tacos.
On June 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating the incumbent, Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley, in what has been described as the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm-election season
