I think most of us can agree that America was built on hard work. We survived as a nation, and thrived as the result of immigrants who came to this country to escape oppression, to build a better life for themselves and their families. They were willing to sacrifice and knew that the ordeal wouldn’t be easy for them. They were basically paying it forward. And it built us into the strong and resilient nation that we are today.
And that is something that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez missed in history class.
In case you missed it…last week AOC called on Americans to boycott going back to work. Somehow, in her addled mind, she feels that if no one goes back to work, it teaches the rich and powerful that they can’t oppress us. That’s because she views work as oppression. Let’s get one thing straight. Without hard work, without sacrifice, without putting our families ahead of ourselves, we wouldn’t be the country we are today. We’d be Niger…the poorest country in the world. We would have no work ethic. We would have no desire to be the best. We would lay around all day watching Oprah Winfrey, complaining that she never gives US a cuckoo clock!
That is one of the major problems with the left, and I understand where AOC and the snowflakes get it. It comes right out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” book. One of the rules he wants to do is tear down our society so it can be rebuilt into a socialistic utopia. Except Alinsky forgot one thing. There is no such thing as a “socialistic utopia”. It doesn’t exist. In fact, in the long term, it can’t exist. Because to become socialist doesn’t mean the people aren’t oppressed by the wealthy. That’s exactly what happens. A few rise to the top and take from those below. That’s exactly what happened in Cuba, in Venezuela, in Russia, in China. Name the country that’s either socialist or communist, and you’ve got a country that has oppressed the masses.
It’s a shame that this college-educated bartender can’t see that! She, like most of the left, want Americans to be paid for sitting on the couch watching daytime TV. Why? Because when the government pays you to stay at home, you’re easier to control. You’ll do what the government says because if you don’t, your means to live is dried up. And that’s what pretty much everything the left is designed to do. They’ve dumbed-down our schools, they’ve tried to take away liberties, now they’re trying to restrict freedom of travel (another of Alinsky’s rules) through the Green New Deal, and they want to be able to tell you what you can and cannot do, so they can have total power over you. You’ll have no freedoms. You’ll have no desires. You’ll be a rag doll.
And that, my friends, is not what those immigrants that fought and clawed and came to this country, worked their fingers to the bone and sacrificed, did it for. They did it for you to be free…not oppressed!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
