Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and socialism, explained

On a scale of zero to some, how many (bleeps) do you give? I think it’s… zero. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not your normal politician. At 29, she’s the youngest
woman ever elected to Congress, and she’s
taken D.C. by storm. So, why is AOC, as many now call her, the newest political figure
everyone loves or loves to hate? We have the FAQs. “Do you call yourself a radical?” “Yeah, if that’s what radical
means, call me a radical.” She advocates medicare for all, a marginal tax rate of up to 70%, tuition-free public
colleges and trade schools, immigration, and human rights. For the freshman
democrat, environmentalism is a driving issue. “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change. This is our World War II.” AOC is calling for a Green New Deal, a public-private partnership
to shift the U.S. to 100% renewable energy in 10 years. Many experts say that’s impossible, especially if nuclear power —
which New Green Deal backers oppose — isn’t in the mix. AOC has said the deal
would be funded in part by a 70% marginal tax rate on incomes after $10 million per year. It doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate, but it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more. President Trump and many conservatives have a word for that: socialism. We renew or resolve that America will never
be a socialist country. “She’s a socialist, she
wants 70% tax rates, those are both accurate, right?” “Yeah, yeah I guess so.” “Okay.” “Democratic though, democratic.” “Democratic socialist.” “Democratic, very different.” Socialists believe in collective verses individual ownership. That collective can be the government, workers, or citizens. Democratic socialists are different. They believe the government
and private industry can work hand-in-hand to provide a better safety net for citizens. This is an issue of authoritarian
regime verses democracy. As AOC begins to focus her media spotlight on policy ideas, it’s clear her supporters and detractors alike are green with envy.

  1. Socialism always leads to communism because socialism is about stealing from those who earn and giving what they stole to others who didn't earn it. It fails all the time because eventually, you run out of people from whom to steal. and people voted for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez… hmmm

  2. i love how the world will end in 12 yrs…..and we all need to be on board with this…….and then when mitch announces that he will put it up for a vote, its called a political stunt lolz…….i mean….if we need this asap, why get mad at the vote?????? idiots…

  3. Another glittering jewel of ignorance produced by the marxist conveyor belts in our colleges. She has no clue about the history of socialist policies and the misery created for hundreds of millions of people

  4. When you need Someone else to explain what you mean by socialism, you have clearly lost. Please please please keep letting this moron talk. The more the better. Trump will win in electoral landslide again

  5. The supporters of this woman should go to the socialist countries around the world and see how great it is!!! The only one that USED to be good, was in Sweden, even that got messed up with SOME immigrants they brought in, same background as racist Ilhan form Minnesota get it????

  6. What he's really saying is we're going to get rid of Social Security, the public school system, and income tax, the minimum wage and the 40 Hour Work Week.
    The US can be like Thailand. A military dictatorship where one-third of the people live in grass huts or shacks.

  7. Ummmmm has she learned NOTHING from socialist countries? I am from Venezuela and had to leave due to the socialism this piece of crap loves and talks about. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the US and feel as much American as I do Venezuelan but I still want my native country to prosper and when I see rats like this woman support socialism it offends me and it offends people who have actually experienced it. I bet you she would change her mind in 1 DAY if she lived in Venezuela for 24 hours. Socialist trash.

  8. Socialism and Democratic Socialism are literally the same thing, but it leads with a different word. We call this deal “socialism” because of the “financial security” whether you decide to work or not, if this bill passes (plz no).

  9. "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples money." Margaret Thatcher.
    In order to achieve her programs it would cost about 60 to 100 trillion dollars. taxing the tip toppers at 70% would only give another 50 Billion a year at most. Then you would have to tax the rest at 50 to 60% like they do in Norway and impose another 25% sales tax and you might get another 300 hundred Billion dollars but that is not enough. So we can print more money and have the collapse our economy like Venezeula. No Thank you . Your socialism does not work.

  10. Sorry, but I'm not quite ready to have the government dictate every aspect of my life, and I'm sure as HELL not ready to get my meals from the back of a garbage truck, as the people of Venezuela were recently shown doing on the news. Perhaps next year. Or NOT.

  11. socialist  // We already have a socialist country program its called welfare – and it should be for American citizens only. Put vale back in to American Citizens ; you fickers// Yes I am a EX – emt -paramedic (20 years) and yes the medical industry has ripped off America citizen's for 20 years now. unless your illegal anti American….  And Mexicans are not Latino and never spoke Spanish, check the history books – fucken dumass

  12. socialist  // We already have a socialist country program its called welfare – and it should be for American citizens only. Put vale back in to American Citizens ; you flickers//  unless your illegal anti American….  And Mexicans are (NOT LATINO) and never spoke Spanish, check the history books – fucken dumass = same ass if America spoke German now and not English, But I have Mexicans friends so calm down

  13. . Amazon be the first to build a new city in America. 25 thousand jobs is a all new city. America needs a new city. Build in a place were healthy life style is available were you live. Ny is all ready old.

  14. You need Chuck Norris to stop this madness from AOC… Oh America… Watching live from the Philippines.

  15. You see, rich people love to work…so we take most of their money and write checks with it. The rich people will keep on working cause they love doing it. Then if they get tired, they can quit and they can get a paycheck….see? It all works out,

  16. His description of democratic socialism is a joke. He says it’s a combination of government and private industry that gives a safety net to the average person. In the first place, the government does not create anything. Without the taxpayers the government wouldn’t exist. All these programs have to be paid for by the American taxpayers and the middle class will be the ones to take the brunt of it. The only people that agree with these stupid ideas are government workers who are basically employed by the taxpayers, And people that have no intentions of ever working or earning a living.


    What does National Socialist German Worker’s Party mean? Is it different from “Democratic socialism”? Only in semantics. A Democracy is mob rule, which is why America is actually a constitutional, representative republic, not a democracy. A representative republic protects the minority from the majority, whereas a democracy is the rule of the majority. Leftists get caught up in words, getting tripped up over “National Socialism” as opposed to “Democrat Socialism.” But it’s just that. Semantics. So when Hitler ginned up hatred for the Jews, he could get the mob to agree with him. He could get the mob to believe him. There were no representatives to stop Hitler. He was one man helming the desperation of a majority of people. See the difference?

    A lesson history has repeatedly taught us: Capitalism produces prosperity and lifts people out of poverty while socialism inevitably results in privation and misery.

  18. "Democratic Socialism" is Socialism. There is no difference. You can place any word in front of Socialism and it doesn't change what "Socialism" is.

  19. BUSTED- Buses Of Migrants Dropped Off At School In El Paso
    New Mexico- Conservative Anthony – THIS CONTINUES ALL WEEK LONG IN MANY STATES

  20. This video doesn’t explain socialism. Business and government don’t work together to make a safety net, government piggybacks off of business which drives production down which in turn reduces availability of items offered in the safety net. When Argentina made there plunge into democratic socialism, inflation was tripled in 5 years. There economy lost 2/3 its economic value from 2011 to 2016.

  21. We don't want shut up you bug eye , old maid , go pay attention to your unemployed boyfriend your living with.

  22. I can't wait until she makes this country like Venezuela. I can't wait for my first street riot or to watch American children eat out of dumpsters. Our new country is going to be great !

  23. Bernie Sanders and AOC are rubbing off their idiocy to the uneducated. This video described democratic socialism as private business working hand in hand with a social welfare safety net. Thats not Democratic Socialism, its Social Democracy. Democratic Socialism IS a socialist state, not capitalism with a safety net.

  24. Dumb Americans

    Your freeway , social security , Medicare , your freeway , your streets are all socialist creation

    You guys been so brainwashed and fear mongered during Cold War you don’t even know what social democracy is ,

    Norway Finland Denmark social democracy ,

    Yes they are capitalist economy .

    Dumb ads Americans falling for ruling class propaganda as usual

  25. Take her to Venezuela and leave her without her American rights and see how she will retract to her views about socialism.

  26. Here's something "Chiquita Khruschev" would like you to gloss over:

  27. 0:26 AOC another puppet political figure with a team of social engineering deep state puppeteers behind her that are writing her speeches and telling her what to say to sell the masses in the fake oligarchy capitalist versus oligarchy socialist opposition scheme. Yeah she is a socialist pretending to be a fresh wind within the fake illuminated Freemason occult controlled socialist scam and yes she is just another radical as in a follower of "Saul Alinsky rules for radicals" a follower of globalist occult socialism just like Hillary also was an adept of "Saul Alinsky and his rules for radicals" it's amazing how they create these oppositions within the fake republicans and democrats divide and conquer game and even within the democrats when AOC follows the same RADICAL doctrine as Hillary nothing really changes but enough simpletons have found their new hero in AOC, this scam is getting so obvious it's amazing people don't see this for what it is.They go left and they go right and the Middle is the path that has been laid out for over decades even centuries. From putting out Bill Clinton in front of the nation as the saxophone playing puppet of the people portrayed as a sexual predator to have people loose trust in the presidency (no state would do that to its leader unless they wanna make people loose trust in their government to have them vote for globalist communism), to having W" Bush being manipulated into office for all to see that it was corruption to break trust in government , W which in Freemason Gematria stands for 66 which is a Freemason Kabbalah reference to the number of the fallen angels (see the famous Luciferianism quote of Albert Pike the pope of US freemasonry), to having Barack Obama a.k.a. Barry Satoro who's "Yes we can" just accidentally when back-masked/ played backwards says "Thank you Satan" and who's name Barack Obama in Aramaic just coincidentally phonetically means "lightning from heaven" as in the biblical reference to "Satan Fell like lightning from heaven". They even promoted the idea of him not being a natural born US citizen to ridicule the Constitution. And then they gave you the ultimate divide with Trump and Hillary, both candidates hated by opposite sites and the soundbite "Not my president" completes the picture of US citizens volunteering to go globalist communist, not to mention the call for abolishment of the electoral college, another element in taking down the constitution and the bill of rights. This is all social engineering done over decades and several generations to have the US population to voluntarily give up their personal freedom and their individual right for socialism/ communism. This is all being socially engineered and Trump is just another puppet in this scheme, another fake hero for the people to gather behind. Like the Freemason Lenin once said, "to make sure the opposition forms no threat you create your own opposition".

  28. Hey, retards, just wanted to ask you if any of you have, say, traveled to Great Britain. Or Canada. Or Australia. Or New Zealand. Or France. Or Germany. Or Spain. Or Italy. Or Australia. Or New Zealand…

  29. 0:45 "The world's going to end in 12 years if you do not address climate change this is our world war II" 😂 does she not know world war II is over. I get what she's trying to say we do need better environment but that's something we cannot focus on right now we really need to assess or debt and pay it off because if we don't, and we go through with this idea the deman of the us dollar would diminish because you need the us dollar to buy majority of the oil in the marketplaces. and one other countries see that we are not using oil no more they're going to start getting inspired and not use oil no more which would the decrease the deman of the us dollar. Look up the petrodollar

  30. There is no such a thing as a working democracy and real socialism taking place at the same time in the same place. You have to choose, lady.

  31. This girl has commie all over her face. America tried to stop communism since the modern era and this stupid women came in trying to make it a socialist government, opposing everything that America stands for. And what the hell is that? The world will end in 12 years, why would you even say something like that that? Who the hell are you to predict the collapse of the planet in 12 years? This woman thinks she's God and it's getting out of hand. She's a psycho, her eyes and anger in her face tells us that she can't be trusted.

  32. Welcome to the people's Alexandria Cortez's Socialist Republic of North America. (currently undergoing famine)

  33. This Bugs Bunny looking moron is done as soon as her term is up. Only a compleat moron would even listen to this blubbering idiot. She’s a fresh new face for morons.

  34. This is what happens with a Socialist Government, eventually the President becomes a Dictator!…

  35. Socialism isn't equal to Communism. Scandinavian countries are socialist in that there is free healthcare and education. This doesn't prevent entrepreneurs to thrive. In matter of fact, having a healthy and educated population boosts moral and intelligence.

  36. Yea, put the word democracy in front of anything and it becomes acceptable like the Democratic People's Republic of Korea right guys?

  37. Democratic socialism? Does that mean if I dont want to get taxed on millions I don't have to? Or if I dont want to then I get locked up? Lol What? Smh

  38. STUPID PEOPLE!!! You have been BRAINWASHED U.S is a SOCIALIST Country the Taxes and benefits all go to the RICH, CORPORATION and BANKS They have been bailed out and subsidies. They've been given free money and Tax breaks for decades. They have eat up the MIDDLE CLASS and left most gutted or in debt.WAKE UP YOU'VE BEEN MANIPULATED AND BRAINWASHED ASS BACKWARDS!!!!

  39. No matter what term you    pretext socialism with, it is still socialism.  The gateway to communism.  The gateway to serfdom of the citizens.  The gateway to the destruction of America.  The idea that this young moron is going to change the way of life in America is just plain stupid.

  40. Many say "that's impossible!" LOL! It was supposedly "impossible to go to the moon!" Impossible for America to become a dictator state! IT'S IN THE PROCESS PEOPLE!!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU CONTINUE TO LET ELITE(1% of the filthy rich) CONTROL US!!! Want our world to eventually end(for humans to survive as we do now), fine with me as I'm old! If not, STOP LIVING IN A FANTASY WORLD BY DENYING CLIMATE CHANGE AND DOING LITTLE TO NOTHING TO PROTECT OUR CLIMATE!!

  41. Question : Who is going to pay for her welfare programs? Rich people you say ? What if you tax them and that stops their ability to expand their business and produce new jobs? Or worse, they just pack up and leave? What are you gonna tax then? Air? Sorry but our world is not Star Trek.

  42. Socialism is the product of the all too common failure of man to understand and appreciate his responsibility to himself, as paramount.

  43. Trump has done us a favor. he has illuminated the dumbest people in the nation. Now we just need to start sterilizing everyone with a MAGA hat, and soon we'll be in good shape.

  44. Psycho wants socialism? Take a look at Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple. THAT was socialism ,, oh yeah it REALLY works,, ask any of the 913 that died at the hands of another mad man, probably her grandpa.

  45. "Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence – not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free."

  46. Oh yeah it’s not socialism, it’s “democratic socialism” because you’ll have the illusion that you have a choice, but you actually don’t.

  47. Doesn't know what a Garbage Disposal is,but is going to Transfor our way of life.Uh no thanks! Stay the F out our lives you Nitwit.

  48. She has the worldview and enthusiasm of a 14 year old.

    I immigrated to America because it's capitalist here, and her Green New Deal is just an absurd excuse to make this country socialist.

  49. Lol! This lady doesnt know what shes talking about. The goal os socialism is communism said Lenin. Garbage garbage garbage socialism DOESNT WORK
