Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is on a roll.
If she is not starting fabrications on what’s happening on the border at the detention facilities, she sounds the alarm for fascism.
Fascism means government control. Socialism is when the government seizes property and the means of production. Fascism is when the government forces the means of production and its property to do its bidding but doesn’t take its ownership. AOC wants a hybrid of both. Both have failed the trial of history, and she wants to combine them, so they fail twice as hard.
This is nothing more than a bait and switch. Call it a manufactured crisis, refuse any funding to handle the situation, and then criticize the current administration for supposedly deplorable conditions. But even the observed conditions vary greatly from a Christian organization that gave their observations on Monday of their tour of the facilities. So what’s true and not true? Given the Christian, the organization was the Hispanic Christian Organization, and their bias would be in the interest of the detainees, I have to say I would accept their evaluations before I would believe AOC’s.
“Are we headed to fascism? Yes. I don’t think there’s a question,” the congresswoman told Yahoo News hours after she toured the detention facilities run by Customs and Border Protection. “If you actually take the time to study, and to look at the steps, and to see how government transforms under authoritarian regimes, and look at the political decisions and patterns of this president, the answer is yes.”
Last month Ocasio-Cortez sparked controversy when she described the migrant detention facilities as “concentration camps on our southern border.” Her comment drew an immediate backlash from critics who accused her of trivializing Nazi concentration camps, while others, including some Holocaust survivors and scholars, said the comparison was a valid one.

AOC has lost it. These people are free to return to their countries of origin if they so choose.
The real question is, who is persuading this mass of people to uproot and trek on a perilous journey north to the US?
Why is zero attention being paid to the increasingly desperate plight of US citizens disaffected by illegal immigration and massively out of control legal immigration?
The 24/7 attacks, most grossly unfounded, on Pres. Trump, over the past three years, will be remembered historically as a truly dark period in American History. The entire Democratic Party, assisted by government agencies and high ranking officials, the news media, Hollywood and Silicon Valley, have done everything in their power to undermine our President. He still stands.
