Ocasio-Cortez tears into leadership of certain poor cities. Facepalm … they have one thing in common.

Socialist congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t appear to realize that the societal problems that concern her the most all exist primarily because of failed Democrat policies.

She demonstrated as much Saturday when she took to Twitter to complain about people who believe her policy prescriptions make her a dangerous left-wing radical.

“Somewhere along the line, people in positions of influence decided that Flint water, Bronx air, or poor schools WEREN’T acceptable for their children, but could be accepted for someone else’s,” she wrote. “And I will never think that is a reasonable compromise to make. So #CallMeRadical.”


She attached a rant in which she expounded further about the dirty air in the Bronx and the dirty water in Flint, Michigan, that children in these respective communities must contend with.

“Kids in the Bronx didn’t choose asthma from the dirty air. Children in Flint didn’t choose neurological disorders from the leader in their water,” she wrote.

While wanting kids to breath clean air and drink clean water is perfectly sensible, Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policy prescriptions for these travesties are not. Nor is really any Democrat solution to these dilemmas sensible. Why? Because Democrat solutions created these problems.

This was a point that many Twitter users made sure to highlight to the congresswoman-elect.


In Michigan, it was Democrat leaders whom some believe caused and exacerbated the water crisis. It’s likewise NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio who’s exacerbating the air problem in the city’s boroughs.

Earlier this year the Democrat mayor announced that he intends to close Rikers Island and replace it with smaller jails in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. According to the New York Post, these jails are expected to “create gridlock, parking problems and air pollution.”

The boroughs are reportedly also now suffering from a dirty water problem too.

“In the past eight months, former NYCHA chairwoman Shola Olatoye resigned in disgrace, and the city Department of Health admitted that since 2012, at least 820 children living in public housing tested with lead levels above 5 micrograms per deciliter, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention essentially classifies as lead poisoning,” the Post reported in July.

In response de Blasio peddled excuses. Ocasio-Cortez is also known for her excuses.

It’s long been argued that decades of failed leadership by Democrat legislators has ruined what were some of America’s top cities, including Detroit. Once the fifth-largest city in America, the “Motor City” peaked in population in 1950, when 1.85 million residents called Detroit home.

That number has been in a free-fall ever since. By 2010 its population had plummeted 25 percent from 2000, to 713,777 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And it just so happens that the last time Democrat boasted a Democrat mayor was in 1962. Coincidence or conspiracy?

According to social media users, it’s a conspiracy, per se — one by Democrats to transform America into a “utopia” using policies that not only never work, but that always leave devastation in their wake.
