Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likens her election win to America’s historic moon landing

WaTimes: Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sees her recent election victory as a watershed moment in world history akin to landing on the moon.

The New York Democrat told reporters on Friday that once again the U.S. is “at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss” that requires citizens of a special kind of mettle. She says that such an elite group exists — and that she and other newly elected Democrats are in it.

“This is not just about a Green New Deal, this is about a new deal for the United States of America,” the 29-year-old said at a “Sunrise Movement” press conference in Washington. “Because in every moment where our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment, when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss, and we did not know if we could be capable of saving ourselves, we have.”

“We’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon,” she added. “We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”

Footage was immediately uploaded to the Republican Party’s YouTube channel.  WATCH

  1. The teacher who taught her self-esteem as a girl did a great job. Too bad she didn’t try teaching civics, history, math, science….

  2. This is what you get when you celebrate a child’s every deed, no matter how mediocre, instead of their actual achievements.

  3. Yes, they’re exactly alike in that both are frauds.

  4. Sounds like she is calling all Patriots to assemble to water that tree that grows on that cusp of an abyss. They are/have been the only ones who are “citizens of a special kind of mettle.”

  5. False modesty is evidently not one of her attributes.

    Or, to put it another way, she is not afflicted with the curse of false modesty.

    Just sayin’.

  6. Yep.
    A series of “firsts!”
    First woman in the House … uhh … no … that’s been done … Jeanette Rankin.
    First woman socialist … uhh … no, that was Jeanette Rankin, too.
    First woman of “color” … uhh … no, that was Patsy Mink.
    First certifiable female socialist moron … uhh … no, too many to list.
    First socialist from New York … uhh … no, also too many to list.

  7. She is right about the occurrences – WE Elected Trump! She is in error (shocked I Say); by including herself in this category.

  8. What do you mean “We”, conceited bitch? We know what the left is, what it’s done, and there’s nothing “elite” about liars and con-men – or women.

  9. Unfortunately the moon landings haven’t been repeated for almost fifty years. Hopefully an election like hers won’t happen again for much longer.

  10. “I thought she was a socialist, but she’s actually a solipsist.”

    They all are. They believe the hard realities of human nature can be altered to fit their preferences just because that’s what they want. Magical thinking.

  11. 45 years from now she’ll be in Pelosi’s or Hillary’s or Mad Max’s shoes. She’s not going away, just watch. For 45 years. It’s not like any of the aforementioned kept their position with any smarts.

  12. i have a hypothesis on how shoe got elected. Based on a similar local circumstance The incumbent was probably bragging that he was going to have an easy re-election because he did not have a primary opponent so. AOC or Dumbass as i like to call her) and to her surprise won. Now she has to put up or shut up and she is clueless as how to deal with the new situation.

  13. The last time the public were introduced to someone this ignorant and narcissistic we laughed, then the SOB went and got elected to the presidency!
    I don’t know about you, but I’m scared. This bug-eyed fool may just pull it off in 6 years.

  14. I hereby volunteer her for NASA’S first manned mission to the sun. Tell her she’s got a VERY important role – to discover the source of global warming while she’s there. 😉

  15. @Agatha Kakalogical:

    The image of her dopey face on the moon is classic!

    Yes, it is! Quite literally my first thought when I saw that image was “Adam Schiff.”

  16. Yeah, there is a lot of similarity between Neil Armstrong’s first step on the moon and her taking a dump in Brooklyn this morning.
