James Woods uses the Gipper’s own wise words to hit back at AOC’s Reagan insults

The brilliance of James Woods shines through once again.

Responding to the latest inane remarks from Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., where the Bronx freshman slammed Ronald Reagan as a racist and suggested America is little more than “garbage,” Woods employed Reagan’s word to smartly sum it up our happy little socialist.

“Reagan: ‘It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so…'” Woods tweeted, along with a clip of Ocasio-Cortez dissing Reagan.

The newly elected Democrat was speaking at the South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas, selling her radical progressive policies to a like-minded room, as she used race to help push class warfare.

“I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”

She also slammed the U.S. while trying to soft sell socialism, saying “where we are is not a good thing and this idea of like 10 percent better from garbage, is — shouldn’t be what we settle for.”

With such wisdom, it’s hard to think Ocasio-Cortez was but a bartender a little over a year ago.


As seen above, the responses to Woods’ offerings are often as good as the original comment — the actor seems to have a way of attracting quality followers.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

On a more serious note, hard-left progressives like Ocasio-Cortez and the views they represent present a real danger to the future well being of this country.

While those who pay attention might see democratic socialists for what they truly are, there’s an entire generation of low-information voters who hang on every word.
