Garbage from AOC
...Her professors should be investigated for educational malpractice. No wonder she could only find a job as a bartender after graduation. Actually, she probably is not as smart as most bartenders.
She also gave a short course in American history featuring this quotable quote: “It’s just that now we’ve strayed so far away from what has really made us powerful, and just, and good, and equitable, and productive, and so I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are but 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, it’s like this like it feels like moderate is not a stance it’s just an attitude toward life of like hmmm.”
Her metaphorical use of the term “garbage” is jarring. Our present condition is somehow represented as garbage, or slightly better, while the lucky beneficiaries of her preferred policies are literally eating garbage in Venezuela. I am quite sure that what we have here is a textbook case of projection.
