Skip to comments.AOC: The Perfect Graduate of Today's Biased Colleges
Posted on 02/10/2019 8:12:08 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
In the immediate sense, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be the best thing to happen to the Republican Party since Abraham Lincoln. Her Green New Deal is as much dead in the water as it is brain dead and constitutes a fabulous talking point for the GOP to run on in 2020.
But there is a point of concern and in the long run a more important one.
AOC represents the natural outgrowth of our extraordinarily biased higher educational system. She is its valedictorian, its Social Justice Summa Cum Laude. Give her the SJWPhD honoris causa and, while you're at it, give the United States of America to China. They won't have to fire a shot.
Think I exaggerate? Consider the level of writing and thinking in her Green Deal in whatever ever-changing iteration, with or without the banning of cow flatulence and air travel, and notwithstanding the guaranteed income for those unwilling to work. (Isn't that already the case with internet trolls but I digress?) This document, if one can call it that, resembles nothing more than the kind of swill presented to and highly approved by professors in today's grievance-obsessed colleges, where Shakespeare and Milton are dismissed or rejected and actual thought (i.e., intellectual reasoning) is ridiculed as manifestations of "white privilege."
Actually, AOC is a nascent (or not-so-nascent) totalitarian. Nevertheless, she has brought along with her almost all of the declared Democratic Party candidates (Gillibrand, Harris, Warren, Booker, Sanders, etc.), a couple of whom, one would hope, might be smart enough to know her ideas are fantastical and so expensive as to bankrupt not just the USA but most of the world along with it. It would cause tremendous suffering, most of all to the poor and working classes who can't afford, or even dare...

Love to see AOC’s transcript from Boston University.
College cannot instill intelligence or common sense.
Nobody's perfect. She is a complete stereotype of today's college graduate, but not perfect. And by the way, Mr. Author, the best thing to happen to the Republican party since Abe Lincoln is Donald Trump.
Get rid of the Dept. of Education pronto.
That would be Reagan. You don’t have a Trump without Reagan laying the deep foundation which he started in the 1950’s.
“Love to see AOCs transcript from Boston University.”
yeah, it’d be nice to see if this ignorant imbecile really did graduate with a degree in economics and international relations ... given her total level of ignorance it’s really hard to believe that she has such a degree from BU ...
In 10 years the Green New Deal will be considered passive progressivism.
They never quit.
Ywh! BUT! it’s Not Just edu; it’s gubmint @all levels, media, bizness, and just about all else that can be considered!
This is The World...and THEY have left nothing untouched.
The best we could have ever hoped for is the lessers of evil...and just wtf we gor!.
We’re good w/TRUMP.45!

She’s a prime example that our universities today are more concerned with indoctrination than education.
She is an even better example of an affirmative action poster child (checks two boxes); dumb as a post with a useless “education” that offers no value to private sector employers (not knocking the degree itself, but her lack of learning anything).
AOC’s Idiotic Green New Deal Looks a lot more like Chinas “Great Leap Forward” & Virginia update
I think Mad Magazine ran it but had to withdraw.
Senior year grades for AOC:

Quote from Dean Wormer in Animal House:
Mr. Kroger, two C’s, two D’s and an F - that’s a 1.2 grade average. Congratulations, Kroger, you’re at the top of the Delta pledge ...
I think we should all relish having a debate with the likes of AOC over tax rates. But instead of emphasizing rates, we can go along and talk of wealth concentration when she mentions billionaires who are typically leftist oligarchs.
Of course anyone that believes in free markets isn’t against billionaires per se. But, it’s the billionaires that are engaging in monopolistic practices such as Bezos, Eric Schmidt, Jack Dorsey. They use government influence to sustain monopolies which allows them to stifle competition from upstarts and smaller companies.
The discussion of millionaires and billionaires will inevitably come up. The leftists always want class warfare. But, this time, Personalize the discussion of billionaires. Bring up the names and call them out for anti-trust and anti-free speech practices. We can use yet another Alinsky tactic against them, personalize and demonize.
The idea is to separate the socialist candidates from their leftist fascist billionaire sugar daddies. Ask AOC if she supports Bezos business model.
She does. And it tells you not only about BU, but the state of education in American universities.
Don't be surprised if her grades were good. Proper grammar and spelling have now been deemed "Eurocentrist" and even mathematics no longer penalizes for getting the answers wrong.
If you are the correct gender, the correct color, and you espouse the correct positions on social justice, you will get good grades.
