The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t quite pushed the United States to a “Mad Max” dystopia quite yet; for the most part, social distancing has led to a lot of dog-walkers meeting up in the street to have conversations about self-quarantining while standing six feet apart. But for the vast majority of working-class Americans, the coronavirus has only proved that the United States is a “brutal, barbarian society” — at least according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during a recent live stream.
As Twitchy just reported, Tom Elliott put together a fantastic compilation of Democrats describing the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to reshape the country into a socialist utopia. It was just a few days ago when House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said that the COVID-19 pandemic was a “tremendous opportunity” to advance Democratic policy goals.
As shocking as it may seem, Ocasio-Cortez does make sense some of the time; we don’t agree with her politics, but she can be eloquent in arguing for them. She starts this clip sounding reasonable, but then as she always does, she has to overplay her hand and go careening off the rails.

AOC is a sad, cry for help.

@AOC. I'm a working class citizen who thinks you're crazy. Have a nice day. Nope you can't can you.

Since it’s such a terrible place we should definitely keep those “poor vulnerable” immigrants out (and repatriate them) to protect them from our brutal barbaric selves.

It’s a “brutal, barbarian” society yet they want illegals to come here ?!! Where is any logic? Why would they want these poor immigrants suffer under American brutal regime?!!

If this country is so bad, how come people like @AOC want to bring so many more people here?

“The US is a brutal, barbarian, society!”
“We should have open borders so migrants can experience this brutal, barbarian, society!”

Vast majority of Americans, working class and poor have a better "quality of life" than ANYWHERE else in the world. Yes, we can improve, there are homeless, especially vets, but to s.ay our existence is "brutal" is an outright lie. Maybe a year in Venezuela would show her this.

Rich….preaching on behalf of the "have nots" while whipping up margaritas. The poorest in America have all the latest electronics. That sounds like a pretty brutal country and society. Right AOC? Go preach in Cuba or Venezuela if you want to be relevant.

brutal and barbarian. this reveals that @aoc: 1) has zero knowledge of history 2) has never travelled outside western society.

To her every thing is racist, unequal and wrong unless it’s free.

I’m as working class as there is, and I love my country. Only thing I don’t like are the worthless politicians.
— Jeffmeyer12 (@Jeffmeyer121) April 4, 2020
more than a little over the top here @AOC

She would be surprised that communist “utopias” like North Korea and Cuba aren’t very nice to workers.

Good grief this woman hates America. Why does she always go out of her way to criticize this country?
— SMR1128 (@SMR11281) April 4, 2020
I've come to the conclusion she hates everyone and everything except for herself.

She's right, this morning I had to fight off Conan JUST so I could get some water at the edge of the river, and then when I was coming back, I got caught between two warring tribes who were fighting with clubs and swords, while I was picking some bananas here in Missouri.

Yes, some Americans struggle to pay the rent each month, but we wouldn’t exactly call that “barbaric.”
AOC reveals how COVID19 is actually really racist and proclaims that 'COVID19 relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations' https://t.co/t6AJmcHnDn
