Someone really really REALLY needs to get Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a history book.
Maybe two of them. And make sure they both have lots of pictures in them because holy cow …
I want to be the party of the New Deal again.
The party of the Civil Rights Act,
the one that electrified this nation and fights for all people.
For that, many would call us radical.
But we aren’t “pushing the party left,”
we are bringing the party home.pic.twitter.com/wLeDaxCHkZ

You think she really knows who FDR was? That he literally put people in internment camps? Not to mention The New Deal only extended the Great Depression …
And wow, she thinks Democrats were the party of civil rights? They filibustered the act for months.
Granted, she was campaigning for Bernie Sanders when she was babbling this spectacular nonsense but still.
“It’s time that we become the party of FDR again.
It’s time for us to become the party of the Civil Rights Act again.

What the heck is Queer Liberation?
And again with the civil rights claim.
Her base probably buys into the myth that the parties magically switched places. Because you know, a bunch of Republicans who opposed slavery and fought for civil rights totally decided to turn into racist Democrats one day.
Yeah, that seems totally legit.
You were the party that voted against the CRA. It would not have passed without the GOP.

Republicans voted in the civil rights act. Democrats tried to filibuster it.

You’re pound for pound the dumbest person in Congress.

The new deal was a disaster that elongated the the Depression …. we the only country calls it the Great Depression…. because we had 2nd dip in 1938. You were an Econ major and don’t know that? pic.twitter.com/MO9jOVXJ7T

The party that interned American citizens, that blocked anti-lynching legislation, that spawned the KKK. Sounds wonderful.

you are literally the crazy party and even Obama is telling you to chill out.

The Dems filibustered the civil rights act for 75 days in the Senate when it was introduced to the floor…learn your History…unless, of course, this is the kind of action you were referring to?

Not to mention FDR LITERALLY PUT PEOPLE IN CAMPS, AOC.
You have to wonder if she even understands how ridiculous the things are that come out of her mouth sometimes.
Well, Democrats weren’t exactly the party of “Civil rights” either, so there is no “again” to go back to.https://t.co/e0nczQPx9H

Democrats try very hard to deny their past while taking credit for what Republicans actually did …
Some things never change.
