Doomsayer AOC Campaigns For Bernie, Decries America As 'Nation In Decline'

Bernie Sanders may be trapped in Washington as the sham impeachment drags on but he has dispatched his surrogates to spread his message on the campaign trail.
His top advocate on the ground in the Hawkeye State is socialist firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is preaching her gospel of a racist America, demonizing of the rich and the looming apocalypse of climate change in his absence.
On Friday, AOC mesmerized the crowd at a rally in Iowa City where the Twitter diva and prophet of doom decried the U.S. as a 'nation in decline' as she implored Iowans to show up at the polls for the critical Iowa caucuses.
Via The Washington Examiner, "AOC speaks of a nation 'in decline' in speech for Bernie Sanders":
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke of an unhealthy country nearly teetering on the brink of collapse in a speech on behalf of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at an Iowa campaign rally, saying radical change is necessary to reverse the bipartisan policies that have deeply hurt the economic circumstances of the average person in the United States.
AOC cited the falling life expectancy of white people and stagnated wages as evidence that the U.S. is a "nation in decline" and said "it’s up to us to turn it around. The trends that got us here will not get us out."
In her remarks, AOC also spoke about the "lock her up" chants often heard at President Trump's rallies. Rather than chastise the individuals responsible, AOC said systemic forces are responsible for driving people to such rhetoric.
"That phrase came from somewhere but what this society does to people. The worst thing we can think to do to a person. It stems from a culture of mass incarceration and culture. These things are connected," she said. "It is cultural, it is societal. And really what we are seeing when generations have worse outcomes or are predicted to have worse outcomes than before, when billionaires coexist with the highest rates of homelessness since the Great Depression."
It was more of the same class warfare, rousing of the babble and in the words of the diabolical leftist Saul Alinsky, "rubbing raw the sores of discontent" that have served as the bread and butter for Breadline Bernie and his band of ersatz revolutionaries.
For Ocasio-Cortez it was relatively tame considering her dishonest demagoguery about the impending doom of humanity if the Green New Deal isn't imposed on Americans, her disgusting comparisons of border immigrant detention facilities to concentration camps and her incessant race-baiting.
AOC's appeal is based upon lies including her wailing about the fantasy of oppressed minorities when under President Trump, the economic prospects for blacks and Hispanics have never been better.
But she and Comrade Bernie aren't concerned with the productive Americans who their socialist policies would oppress and steal from - only those who are so unhappy with their own miserable lives that they would take the great leap of faith as the doomed citizens in Soviet Russia, communist China, Cuba and Venezuela did.
Her snake oil sells to the suckers, especially those who actually believe that she is a serious 2024 presidential contender despite her inexperience and lack of knowledge.
Unfortunately for Democrats, Sanders is still leading the wretched pack of Democrats in Iowa even as he is forced to endure hours upon hours of speeches from Adam Schiff but in Ocasio-Cortez, he has a valuable asset to sell his top commodities of fear and loathing to hateful ignoramuses.
But outside of the dregs of society and the cultural elite coastal bastions of liberalism, this brand of politics is thankfully toxic to the vast majority of Americans and a major reason why the Democrats are headed for an extinction level event in November.
