 Ocasio-Cortez Excuses Her Factual Errors: Critics Are More Concerned About Facts Than Being ‘Morally Right’
Posted By David Rutz On January 7, 2019 @ 10:31 am In Politics | No Comments

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) said on "60 Minutes" Sunday that the focus on her factual errors by political opponents was "missing the forest for the trees" and having her facts right wasn't as important as being "morally right."

"One of the criticisms of you is that your math is fuzzy," interviewer Anderson Cooper said.

Cooper mentioned the Washington Post‘s Four-Pinocchio rating of Ocasio-Cortez's claim that $21 trillion in Pentagon "accounting errors" could fund two-thirds of progressives' desire for "Medicare for all."

Thus far, has she been either one, that is, factually or morally correct about anything?

  • Words full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
If you don't have a factual basis for your argument, then you have no way to know if you are 'moral'- you are instead basing it on your own ego what you may believe is right- but not necessarily what is actually right.

At that, if you are basing your 'morals' on falsehoods, your morals are more likely than not, also false.

All actions should be measured to be right and true, not just blindly followed based on ego. Imagine of a carpenter based his measurements on his beliefs versus what he could factually measure.

Just wondering when did emotions ever make you morally correct, and when did they become a substitute for facts.

The Dems have known for decades the facts weren't on their side for what they want to do to us...so they went for the emotional angle.  That way they can attack anyone who brings up those pesky facts as heartless cruel people who want children and the elderly to die.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but didn't the Dems used to lecture us that you couldn't legislate morality?  :pondering:

True that. The 'ends justify the means' set never really has been.

But she makes one heck of a media smokescreen for the rest of those dirty rats.

Morality of the isabsed type invariably proves to be specious.  (If you had straightforwardly said that you don't think she is moral, I would say "Me either.") happy77

I've read the childish speech is scripted, just like Blasey Ford. If you talk like a widdle girl with a widdle Betty Boop voice, people will not be as critical of what you say. They may even think you're harmless. Why else would AOC  use a phrase like "tippy top" to describe the wealthy. What adult - let alone one who supposedly earned an economics degree - would say such a thing? But it's just so cute!

You may be right. That tippy-top comment was ludicrous.

With all due respect, she was talking to a tippy-topper when she said it. And Nancy Pelosi was listening. She needed a word that sound a lot like "not you".

@Emjay

If she was a Michael Moore I would agree with you. But she is a member of Congress and can vote on legislation and introduce legislation. And her ideas not only need to be ridiculed but intellectually challenged because her ideas would devastate the economy  and the middle class.  Her Version of being “morally right” does not overcome math and economics

I’ve had a discussion with a couple people who like her and are upset that fact checkers  call her out and they believe that the only reason why it’s being done to her is because she’s a minority, young, and female.  I remind them that those same fact checkers correct the president and he’s not young, minority, or female

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

She is one member of Congress who is a fad right now.  I am still not interested in her.
