AOC Gets History Lesson After Calling Bada** Millennials 'Greatest Generation'
The results following her hiatus have been even less impressive than they were before. Thankfully, former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was ready to pounce:
.@AOC No generation in human history has ever experienced a world with more prosperity, more freedom, more leisure time, more access to information, higher literacy rates, better life expectancy... 1/2https://t.co/m6lMwHKqLZ— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) August 29, 2019
...lower child mortality, less poverty, less disease, less hunger, and less violent crime that the current generation.— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) August 29, 2019
.@AOC, you thank the Greatest Generation who won World War II for the peace and prosperity you enjoy today.

Her climate change rant from Tuesday night on Instagram Live was wild enough, but that wasn’t the only thing she talked about during that chat that had people rolling their eyes.
“I think they’re badass,” said Ocasio-Cortez of young people in the clip, a copy of which was tweeted by conservative political voice Caleb Hull. “I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors.
AOC extrapolated, saying that millennials had intrinsic courage to challenge the status quo, something that older generations generally lacked.
Immediately after saying that she didn’t “want to paint everybody with a broad brush,” AOC did just that, acting as though young people pioneered the concept of political activism — and apparently forgetting the Vietnam War protests and push for racial equality of the 1960s — let alone the WWII generation that saved the world from authoritarian rule and dubbed by former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brokaw in his 1998 book, “The Greatest Generation.”

“Young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors... they actually take time to read and understand our [world] history.”
