Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flaunts her ignorance
By Anna L. Stark

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims she's a college graduate, having earned an undergraduate degree from Boston University.  Apparently, a basic understanding of how governments are structured around the world wasn't a graduation requirement.  In her recent 60 Minutes television interview, Anderson Cooper asked the newly elected House representative if her policies mirror the failed socialist regime of Venezuela.  Laughing at the question, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez replied, "Of course not.  What we have in mind and what my policies most closely resemble are what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden."  Dismissing the fact that she spoke for an unknown and unidentified collective by employing the word "we" in her response, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is in need of a remedial world civics class.  Having flaunted her ignorance for the umpteenth time, Anderson Cooper failed to follow up by asking Ms. Ocasio-Cortez if she knows the difference between a parliamentary representative constitutional monarchy and a constitutional republic.  It's evident her civics education is sorely lacking.

I don't know what's more pathetic: the fact that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is unable to differentiate between a constitutional monarchy and a constitutional republic or the fact that Anderson Cooper may not know, either.  If by some chance he does know the difference, did he think by not pointing it out that with the exception of Finland, all three of the other countries Ms. Ocasio-Cortez mentioned have hereditary heads of state or, in the vernacular, monarchs for life?  Unlike the U.S. pesident; who is elected for a defined term, either four or eight years, and who presides over a constitutional republic, kings and queens are not elected by the people's vote; they are anointed in elaborate ceremonies and crowned by the country's prevailing religious vicar.  A monarch has but one purpose: to lord over his or her subjects.  And while it's important to point out that in the 21st century, neither of the kings in Sweden or Norway wields any real power, nor does Queen Elizabeth II, who currently sits on the throne in the United Kingdom, fact is, this centuries-old method of governance remains steadfast and will remain steadfast in the foreseeable future.

I heard she dumped on ice but the day or two before, voted for ICE. I see no confirmation that this happened but I'm looking for it. She is just getting headlines for things she says. Same for some other Reps like those Muslim women, at least, Tlaib.  Representatives, there are many. We tend not to hear much about them.

Her ignorance is the only thing she has to flaunt, unless you count her dancing.
Principles matter. Words matter.

AOC is the prototype millennial liberal - ignorant but cocksure of her infallibility. Which, but for the high degree of ignorance and of confidence, makes her like the young of previous generations.

The big difference between her kind and young generations past, IMO, is she’s equally certain anyone who disagrees is evil incarnate. And this makes her dangerous.
