Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is in news yet again for yet another boneheaded statement.

And this time the first Green Beret in Congress is shutting her down.

Claiming the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was “extraordinarily traumatic” for her, Ocasio-Cortez claimed the event means she “effectively served in war” and needed the same mental health support services as combat veterans.

Claiming she “served in war” is somehow not the stupidest thing she’s said this year, but it drew a quick reaction from Congressman Mike Waltz (R-FL.)

Waltz is a combat veteran and the first Green Beret elected to Congress.

“January 6 was a terrible day for sure and those involved will be brought to justice but this is a sad and ignorant comparison to make…and a disservice to those who actually served,” Waltz posted to Twitter.

“AOC doesn’t know what it’s like to come under attack by machine-gun fire, mortars or RPGs,” Waltz continued.

“She hasn’t seen the horror of roadside IED explosions on bystanders & children. She hasn’t lost fellow soldiers on the battlefield or seen friends permanently disfigured by Taliban attacks,” he tweeted.

“Don’t use false equivalencies to make a point. Especially as it relates to war,” Waltz ended.

It’s not the first Ocasio-Cortez claimed to be “traumatized.” In a heavily-mocked 2019 Instagram video, she claimed her luxury apartment’s garbage disposal “scared the daylights out of me” and asked followers to explain the device, which utterly confused her.

Maybe she was on the plane with Hillary, when our brave First Lady was subjected to Sniper Fire! Here’s a good Hillary Joke. Bill and Hillary were attending a baseball game. As the opening ceremony time neared, a secret service agent approached the president, whispering a message to him. The president looked at the agent with a confused expression, and the agent again repeated the message. Clinton shrugged his shoulders, grabbed Hillary, and threw her onto the infield. The surprised agent quickly rushed to Mrs. Clinton’s side, picked her up off the grass, and glared at the president, yelling “SIR, I SAID THROW OUT THE FIRST P-I-T-C-H!!!!”

The Bubba Joke is funny.

Q. What was a worse disaster, The Clinton Presidency or the Titanic Sinking?

A. The Clinton Presidency. Only 200 women went down on the Titanic.

According to her friends, AOC actually had an orgasm during the Jan. 6 riot on the Capital.

The sad thing is that she’ll be in office forever if she stays in NY. Unfortunately, the dummies out number the normal people as evidenced by her, deblasio, schumer, nadler, cuomo, and a few other imbeciles that keep getting reelected, no matter how stupid or evil they are.

Retroactive Term Limits and statutes preventing nepotism would end these regimes. Once a congressional representative learns the ropes about how to hoodwink folks within their districts, they become a liability.

Soros is a Globalist, and there are many congressional representatives who subscribe to that ideology. Basically, their doctrine calls for dissolving borders, while subordinating the people of those former countries to international ruling bodies. Odumbo demonstrated his acceptance of this scheme with the TPP, but there are additional steps recommended to implement their plan, including the disarming of populations, and reducing the world population substantially. I’m afraid we’ve lost our ‘Free Press’, since they’re daily parroting the salient narrative of these Globalist potentates. (Does it not seem strange that ALL forms of communication/media are now under the control of a few very rich CEOs?) For nations to survive, they must contain their people, leaders, laws, cultures, resources and defensive forces within established borders. As we’re learning now, the latter are increasingly being dissolved.

I actually believe they rig the election all the time. Do you actually believe the people of Chicago haven’t ever gotten tired of Democrats, the last 90 years.

We’re all victims of some scam, violence, malfeasance, corruption or the onset of diseases, but those crimes and travails were not motivated by “Hate”. That worn out canard has carried certain people into public office, media dominance, ostentatious wealth and a permanent status as ‘victims’.
