AOC lauds millennials, Gen Z, because they read history and are ‘actually willing to go to the streets’

After a brief hiatus from Twitter, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back on social media and decided to tell her followers how the Electoral College is “bogus” and “a scam” while preparing some macaroni and cheese.
The New York Post noted the except from the video that Twitchy favorite Caleb Hull posted, in which Ocasio-Cortez weighs in on the truly greatest generation(s) — millennials and Gen Z.
Millennials, you see, are “actually willing to go to the streets,” unlike the cowards of the World War II generation who were actually willing to go to Europe and beyond to defeat the Axis powers. Here’s the clip:
AOC on Instagram live:

“Young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors... they actually take time to read and understand our [world] history.”

Um, what?

“I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they’re actually willing to go to the streets,” she said. “How ’bout that?
“Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government’s got it,” she said, leaning into the camera and cupping her hands to her mouth. “Let me tell you something: You are the government. As a democracy, ‘we the people’ means you.”
Despite the tone-deaf bashing of veterans in the fight for social reform, AOC lauded her generation’s familiarity with history.
“They actually take the time to read and understand our history,” she said. “The history of the labor movement, history of civil rights, history of racial struggles, history of economics, history of the United States, history of colonialism.”
We especially like how she slipped the history of economics in there, seeing as it was her major in college.
The ones sleeping in their parents’ basement or working with their coloring books in the “safe space”?

And adult recess.
Sorry AOC but millennials ARE NOT the Greatest Generation. The real one saved the world for Democracies.

And from Communism.
Every time I want to give her the benefit of the doubt...she just makes too many asinine statements. My generation has a lot of catching up to do if we want to be considered as great as the World War II generation.

Please someone encourage her to visit a cemetery in Normandy. And discourage her from live streaming it.

I'm a millennial I know for a fact that my generation filled with a bunch of oversensitive everyone wins all inclusive boycotting protesting pussies. There nothing badass about us millennials it's just depressing.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. The second step is appreciating what you have and the generations that made it possible.

  1. WW2 veterans (the great grandparents of the millennials) were, indeed, very brave, but they were bravely doing what their governments told them to do. Quite a few boomers (grandparents of the millennials) went onto the streets in the 1960s to defy their governments. AOC is probably thinking about the parents of the millennials. They were pretty quiet and obedient.
    Maybe the millennials know a bit of history (WW2? That was when George Washington beat Napoleon and the Russians, wasn't it?) but AOC doesn't.

  2. Hey Hey LBJ, how many kids did you kill today. In 1968 in Chicago at the Democratic Convention was quite a confrontation in the streets. We were trying to stop corporate plundering and murder in Vietnam. Protesting for gender pronouns and bathroom rights, just isn't the same. For the last 20 years I have not talked to anyone under 30 that knows anything or cares.
