WATCH: Tucker Carlson BLASTS AOC's Extreme Immigration Rhetoric
The words "immigration rhetoric" get thrown around like empty hormone needles at a transition party. Usually with the word "extreme" in front. Usually directed at the right, because those are the rules. Us nasty Republicans with thinking people should not be allowed to enter the country illegally. I know. I hate us sometimes too. We're basically animals. Except conservatives are not the ones who have an "extreme" view of immigration, or anything else for that matter. "Extreme" belongs to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democrat Party, as well as the other Democrats who know she's wrong, but are afraid to speak up to her bug-eyed face. Tucker Carlson weighed in.
It sounds like something "woke" baristas in Brooklyn would be excited about. Banning ICE. Ignoring federal immigration law. Giving amnesty to millions. Decriminalizing illegal border crossings, which is to say totally open borders. Anyone can come. When they get here, give them free stuff.
Nobody really wants any of this; even most of the people saying it know it wouldn't work. The public would revolt if you tried it. If half of Guatemala moved here tomorrow, which is exactly what would happen, it wouldn't help anyone. This is all fantasy. Countries have borders. That's what makes them countries.
Someday, the AOC moment will pass. It's too stupid to continue.
Gee, do you think? See Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Doubles Down on Crazy World-Ending Prediction Because of Climate Change and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tries Using Croissants to Argue for $15 Minimum Wage, Fails.
This is why, as an openly partisan person, I LOVE that AOC is basically calling the shots. We have a presidential election next year. 217 Democrats are in the running. All of whom, as is the usual standard operating procedure, wants to hide how extreme some of their positions are. Every time AOC opens her mouth, and the left's Clickbait Industrial Complex obsessed with her repeats her words, each and every candidate has to go on the record supporting exactly what AOC just said. It's kind of glorious.
Start popping all the popcorn now. You're going to need it.
