Posted on 03/16/2019 11:56:41 PM PDT by EinNYC
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recalled how her public-school teachers thought she needed remedial education because she had grown up speaking Spanish at home.
The freshman lawmaker, speaking Saturday at a packed town hall organized by the Jackson Heights People for Public Schools, said, As a child I spoke Spanish first.
and I went to a school where no one looked like me. I went to a school where teachers thought I needed remedial education because I spoke two languages instead of one.

She knows so little, she doesn’t know what she doesn’t know.
It is probable that her teachers were trying to HELP her learn English so she wouldn’t be handicapped by not speaking the language of the USA as she grew up. Problem is, she never grew up and exhibits the typical veil of perceived victimhood sought after by most leftards.
What does this even mean?
Thats what happens when you elect a pole stripper/NYC bartender...same thing /whatever.
And she’s a malignant narcissist and sociopath.
“AOC, who ran partly on a platform of free higher education, owes between $15,000 and $50,000 in student loan debt, her Congressional disclosures show.”
PLUS $850,000 her campaign syphoned off then an additional $1850 in New York taxes for her failed business.
And she is still ignorant as to how our government works.
As a rule, teachers DO NOT tell a slow child that they are genetically handicapped. They come up with some polite fiction, like speaking Spanish as a primary language, that enables a Stupid to be blissfully unaware that Gaia and their parents f%&ked them over.
I suspect she didn’t speak English proficiently, which is understandable when another language is spoken at home, but has to use every opportunity to play her race card. Being put into remedial courses is meant to help, not insult.
She went to public schools....govt run schools. Now she wants more govt??? She does need remedial education
When she stole tips from her co-workers at the bar, she demonstrated a working knowledge of socialism and government.
It was like an unofficial internship that prepared her well for her current job.
Exactly. And, once again, she provides information that is easily researched and more likely, proven wrong. At her age, given the timeline she provided, it’s going to be rather easy to research the demographics of the school(s) she attended. If/when the research proves her wrong, she’ll play the victim but also give more credibility to her being chosen in a “casting call”.
However, she and the other three are creations of the Dr. Frankensteins of the Democratic Party, not anything else.
It was written that she went through $50k in savings during her campaign and that is why she had to start taking a paycheck from it. Which is legal. But.........
Her aides say that she and her partner struggled to pay $1000 a month to live in the condo she got from her dad, which was mortgage free.
She was a bartender. If she did burn through $50k in savings, how did she save all of that and did she pay all the appropriate taxes on that money?
So....to go along with your comment....Where’s the money? How was she able to live?
Typical hypocrite, as are 100% of the liberal, hipster, socialist Left.
"she scored in the 99th percentile"
That must have been one brain-dead school.
She spoke in “tongues”, “forked tongues.
Hell, my grandfather, as an immigrant child, spoke 4-5 languages before he came to America and learned perfect English. (He spoke Russian, Yiddish, German, Herbrew and perhaps some Polish).
Occasionally Conscious Cortex is the Al Sharpton con-artist of the political world, the “Mrs. Ed” of today’s TV only not as smart.
She should be known as the modern “Talking Tower of Babbling”. She’s so incompetent at speaking “sense” that my old English teacher from the 50’s jumped up out of her grave and shot herself because she couldn’t stand to hear a supposed “American”, college-educated (how did she get a degree in Economics from Boston Un?) woman speak so incoherently and get away with it.
My Thesaurus, upon hearing AOC speak, burst into flames to put itself out of the misery of hearing her mangle the English language.
And all of this from a privileged NY Puerto Rican-heritage wackjob.
New York is the laughing stock of the country re supposedly educated people, esp. politicians. Forget California. Nothing can salvage that insane asylum bowl of cereal - full of nuts, flakes, and fruits.
However, since DeBlasio wants a “meatless Monday”, let’s ask his wife is she endured one? /sarc, snarky and DGAS.
You can be sure she did some hooking on the side. It comes with the turf.
Well looks like she learned how to dance anyway.
After talking to some millennials, I found out why I think that she’s she’s a complete idiot. It’s from “paying attention to Republican scaremongering.” It seems that I’m too stupid to form that opinion from listening to her own words. They ignored my response and still claim that I’m being influenced by the right.
