Our new “I’ll take your money honey” in Congress is Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who famously wants to give everything away to everyone, and destroy the republic of the United States of America as we know it. She apparently fancies herself to Lincoln (the Republican) and FDR (the socialist). The dichotomy of that comparison on its face shows idiocy.
It is easy to promise the Moon when you are ignorant. However, ignorance also kills. I would compare her to Lenin or Marx, the architects of the Socialist movement that killed more than 200 million people in the last century. By the way, the Nazis were also socialist (Nationalist Socialist Party); add in Hitler’s kill totals and you get the picture.
The Marxist Bolsheviks also promised everything, and wanted to burn down imperial Russia in the process. They succeeded beyond their wildest dreams in the latter. The former, not so much.
When asked about her Socialist views and the results in Venezuela or Cuba, Miss Ocasio-Cortez answered, “Of course not. What we have in mind and what my policies most closely re-resemble are what we see in the UK, in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden.”
What Miss Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t know, or want to know, is that the last several decades have seen Sweden enact pro-market reforms and a reduction in the liberal welfare state. The same is happening in other Nordic countries. I won’t even go into the horrible results and death panels of the health care system in the United Kingdom.
Describing the changes in Sweden put in place in 2006 by right-wing Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, The Commentator writes, “He switched focus on taxation from the rich to the low waged in an effort to stimulate economic growth. He attacked unemployment benefits with increased incentives on making work pay more. He even increased the retirement age to 67. (Sound familiar?) As a result of such measures, he received furious attacks from powerful Swedish trade unions.”
Alas, the Social Democrats (Socialists) were able to form a minority government with the Green Party in 2014, but their goal of ramping up the nanny-state once again has been stymied by the Conservative Alliance opposition. In addition, the Swedish Democrats, an anti-immigrant, populist party has gained one-fifth of the electorate in a very short period of time, only single digits from becoming the dominant party in Sweden.
In short, eventually socialism takes its toll; you have to pay the piper. Sweden realized this at the turn of the millennium. The money doesn’t grow on trees, although Miss Ocasio-Cortez may think so.
Our “I’ll take your money honey” also talks a lot about open borders. One of the reasons Sweden has been successful in the past was the fact that the country enjoyed a monocultural society. Swedes historically valued work, success and innovation. Far different from the “Hard work is a racist term” bandied about by our Millennial Bolsheviks, who can’t compete in a real market economy.
Multiculturalism, imported in 2015 by the “progressive” government, literally has destroyed Sweden’s future. Its internal security is now highly suspect. There are no-go zones in Muslim areas where police cannot go, although the police would rather call them “vulnerable areas” subject to radicalization by Islamic migrants and hate-preachers. Rape by Middle Eastern migrants has reached epidemic levels. In many cities, woman are not safe to walk alone on the streets.
Is this the feminist nirvana that Miss Ocasio-Cortez wants?
Speaking of the hyperfeminism that Sweden also enjoys, the result has been a rise in totalitarianism, or feminist fascism. Just today, Zero Hedge sported the headline ” ‘Hate Speech’ Convictions Soar Tenfold as Sweden Cracks Down on Migration Critics.”
According to Näthatsgranskaren, the online hate speech monitor) on Twitter, 1,218 police reports 2017-2018. 144 hate speech sentences, from 214 notifications. “Many are waiting for prosecution!”
Let me repeat, at best Miss Ocasio-Cortez is dangerously ignorant. At worst, she is deceitful and diabolical, just like most of the rest of her party. She needs to be challenged on her view of the world and on her knowledge of history.

On a side note, in 2018 the Russian Federation finally achieved the same level of agricultural output it enjoyed 100 years prior, when imperial Russian literally was the breadbasket of Europe. The Bolsheviks in the end killed anyone with any knowledge or guts to oppose their socialist revolution. They destroyed generations of Russians and the country’s future was never the same.
