  1. The Mostly Stupid Newscasters Belching [email protected] each evening must be dellusional if they think the Absolutely Obnoxious Communist is worthy of any airtime. She is nothing but a floating turd in the Democrapic Party toilet. Flush her.

  2. So in other words Democrats want communism equal for all that's what Hitler said, Venezuela President said the same thing and look at the results.

  3. Fruits of Socialism in USA are being enjoyed by US Congress, US Senators, Fire department, Police and other Federal employees. They get best health care, best doctors, best pensions, best retirement funds and so on why average American gets nothing of above. Freedom and Democracy in works.

  4. Stop referring to socialism as though the private sector cannot exist and how socialism means government control over private sector businesses…THAT IS COMMUNISM NOT SOCIALISM!

  5. Newsflash! There's no such thing as a Democrat Socialist. You're either one or the other. It's a recently manufactured label to sound trendy to deceive the masses. And today's Democrats are no longer Democrats. They are Socialists and Marxists. If you doubt that, look at their policies.

  6. People who claim that they are evil tend to not be worse than most people… On the other hand people like AOC who claim to be good… They make me wary.

  7. No your either a socialist or a capitalist. A socialist economy means your paycheck goes to the government a capitalist mean you keep what you work for if you want to pay off student loans get a part time job while your in school other people have done it so you can too

  8. She is hypocritical. She doesn’t even know how minimum wage works. Don’t know how people voted for him…please at-least listen to her and then decide how to form you view about her.

  9. She confused 'social democracy' with 'democratic socialism.' The former is perfectly compatible with capitalism, the latter isn't.

  10. but they threat Trump fairly right? This interviewer kisses her but and laughs at her stupid reply. This is advertising, not interview. ffs/

  11. It's a sad reality We as Capitalists have been celebrating Socialism every year.
    Thanksgiving is a Socialist Holiday about those Pilgrims who escaped Socialism just to bring Socialism to America.
    We should be ashamed of ourselves for celebrating Hypocrisy.

  12. When is AOC gonna pay her taxes from 2012? They want Trumps tax documents? That’s the pot calling the kettle black. Oh the hypocrisy.

  13. How much money out of their paychecks do they give away every Friday that’s socialism right take away from the rich and give to the poor practice what you preach DOA

  14. I think you should have the right to make as much as you possibly can but I have the right to take as much of that as I possibly can.

  15. She thinks the private sector does a lot of things better than the government, so she can't be a socialist because in socialism there is no private sector. "Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership of the means of production." What she describes essentially is social democracy, a system that many countries in Europe have in which the state's input alleviates the worst problems of inequality that capitalism usually produces. By the way in Europe there are usually workers on the board of companies but that doesn't stop these companies to be dominantly interested in share holder value. They just pay the worker's on the board enough hush money.

  16. She’s not a socialist, she’s a Social Democrat (there’s a difference). She has good policies but calling yourself a Socialist when you’re not is really not helping anyone.

  17. She needs to be dragged across an oil-soaked warehouse floor by two longshoremen and thrown into a dumpster with duct tape around her mouth.

  18. It's always "a more nuanced understanding." She never actually defines anything that she stands for clearly. Spoken like a true politician.

  19. These kids like free stuff nowadays. Take from those who have and get free stuff

    Visualize Perfection because communism seems so great on paper. Then look at USSR and North Korea. And Cuba. And yugoslovaki. And chekloslovaki. And all the other communist countries and how the bread lines and hand outs got toooooo Long

  20. Living proof of the dangers of eating lead paint…….🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  21. "i dare not speak to you about politics, because you are a woman." – john adams

    step it up ladies. 100 years since suffrage and we have this…

  22. This kid is almost as stupid as she is ugly with that donkey smile and ugly glasses. She should go back to serving drink she's better at that.

  23. She is too stupid to be in Congress honestly she does not belong there she does not have the smarts for that position at all

  24. She didn’t do the best explanation, BUT I’m glad she brought up worker co-ops. Please visit Democracy at Work and Richard Wolff to learn more about this.

    This is what we need and what people want. Pro-union, as well.

  25. Here is the link per worker cooperatives –

    You know, MSM could have done a better job by then going into an in-depth discussion on worker cooperatives. The public needs to learn about this. My guess is the corporatist media doesn’t want people to know about it. They are fine with our current system though everyone knows we are completely out of balance. It’s a no brainer that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Welcome to Kleptocracy with Supreme Leader Trump! The global capitalist system is broken. I have hope that finally we will elect someone like Bernie to stop the corporate welfare and have our government appropriations go towards healthcare, education, affordable housing, green infrastructure vs the private health insurance industrial complex and the military industrial complex to name 2. Btw, I hope you know that “free market” capitalism has NEVER existed!!!! Free market means little to know government intervention. It has never happened in its “ideal” form. It’s a “libertarian utopia.” Just passing along . . .

  26. Wow a moron teaching us about capitalism when she herself are confused. This is another higher moral ground Democrat are trying to take.

  27. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) decides to try horseback riding, even
    though she has had no lessons, nor prior experience. She mounts the
    horse unassisted, and the horse immediately springs into motion. It
    gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but AOC begins to slide
    from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse’s mane, but cannot
    seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse’s
    neck, but she slides down the horse’s side anyway. The horse gallops
    along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider.

    Finally, giving up her frail grip, AOC attempts to leap away from the horse and
    throw herself to safety. Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in
    the stirrup, AOC is now at the mercy of the horse’s pounding hooves as
    her head is struck against the ground over and over. As her head is
    battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from
    unconsciousness when to her great fortune Frank, the Walmart greeter,
    sees her dilemma and unplugs the horse.

  28. SOCIALISM IS A GREAT IDEA, LETS ALL PICK UP A TENT AND WITNESS IT 1ST HAND IN SAN FRANSISCO
    LETS GIVE A DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT A CHANCE AND THE WHOLE COUNTRY WILL ENJOY THIS LIFE STILE.

  29. CNN 'S RATINGS ARE LOWER THAN THE HOME AND GARDEN CHANEL NOW, I'M PRETTY SURE CSNBC IS IN THE SAME SHAPE. ……R I P FAKE NEWS NETWORKS…..M A G A

  30. So the nickel mines in The Congo are technically socialist run mines, where children work for 3 cents an hour. YAY! that's true socialism!

  31. The right response to socialism, or communism, or anarchy, or fascism, or monopoly privilege (i.e., what we too easy refer to as "capitalism") is found in the writings of Henry George. Remove all monopoly privileges from the systems of law and taxation and the result is cooperative individualism: full equality of opportunity, full individual liberty, within a cooperative social framework. To paraphrase Adam Smith, the role of government is to ensure that a fair field with no favors exists. Markets operate efficiently and fairly when none of the participants enjoys privilege. Few understood better than Henry George the true nature of privilege and what must be done to remove all forms of privilege from our socio-political arrangements and institutions. Of these, he counted "rentier" (i.e., landed) privilege as the most destructive to the
    promise of democracy.

  32. I’m a hard capitalist. Hate both political parties for their blatant hypocrisy. I lean slightly conservative but am more moderate on the economy.

    It is clear that the economy has advanced parabolically over the last 40 yrs (go look at the S&P 500) enough for a fixed baseline annual income for everyone and basic minor healthcare for all. The way I see it is that the US should always stick to capitalism but should include minor aspects of socialism that regulate corruption and greed. If you have uncheck unregulated capitalism over a long term period, greed and corruption will infect the markets and create a massive wealth gap that will shrink the middle class to non-existence and eventually lead to revolution. We’re far from a massive gap that would lead to such an occurrence but it’s clearly happening over the long haul if you’re paying attention.

    We potentially need to start implementing the same checks and balances imposed on our government, that prevent single individuals from gaining all power, into our businesses and yes even limits on total wealth (these limits should be extremely high to the pt where your incentives to work hard are not diminished — i.e. wealth limit of $1 billion)

    Just some ideas guys— think for yourselves and ignore the mainstream media.

  33. couldnt they have gotten a better actress than AOC ? Shes exceptionally stupid….and self righteous. Its a very bad combo.

  34. NYC, Boss AOC, DeBlazio, & DemonRat's brand of Socialism: Ship homeless to other states without informing those states. https://nypost.com/2019/10/26/nyc-homeless-initiative-sends-people-across-us-without-telling-receiving-cities/

  35. well, actually if you see scandinavian countries, Germany, UK, many other european countries… we are democratic socialist with capitalism together. Not perfect but it works..

  36. AOC And The Other 3 The NEW NAZI Party ! Hitler was A National Socialist , AOC is A Climate Change Socialist ! Hitler Blamed Everything On The Jews , AOC Blames Everything On White Peoples ! The Only Difference Between Hitler And AOC is Hitler was A Male And AOC is A Female ! Hitler Had The Gestapo to do his dirty work , AOC Has ANTIFA To Do Hers ! Hitler And AOC Are Different Sides On The Same Coin ! Will it be Sieg Heil Given To Her By Her , Financial Supporter George The Nazi Soros ?

  37. Capitalism is like the elephant in the room that everyone secretly knows is failing and getting worse but they cling onto it because change is scary.

  38. When your star candidate for your silly movement cannot distinguish the difference between the social democracy she endorses, and the democratic socialism she defines not supporting. Irony….

  39. She is ignorant , She makes her own definitions of words and how she wants them defined to make herself sound logical and appealing. socialism is socialism and we are a republic not a democracy ! She talks for votes directed at minorities , immigrants and welfare recipients , thats all , she could care less about the rest of America or us working Americans !

  40. You and she are both communist, good luck with your new found poverty, ask the Russians, they had to have what your wanting, it worked great for the party officials, the rubes couldn’t find food, you people are insane.

  41. REPORTER to AOC…Can you be a Capitalist Socialist AOC'S RESPONSE ; WOW c'mon THAT'S A BIGGIE LIKE MAYBE I COULD AND PROBABLY LIKE NOT Man !
