Airhead AOC Says Millennial’s Are First to Protest

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York recently took to Instagram, as she tends to do when she wants to entertain us. The most current post, as of this writing, was a doozy.

“Is the new generation too delicate? No! I don’t think they’re too delicate at all. I think that they’re badass. I think that young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors. I think that they are more sensitive, in a positive way, in that they actually care about other peoples’ experiences and lives. One thing that I love so much about mill — this new generation is the radical acceptance that I see from so many and they actually take time to read and understand our history, the history of the labor movement, civil rights, history of racial struggles, history of economics, history of the United States, history of colonialism.”

She went on to say, after boasting about her generation’s knowledge of history, “I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave because they are actually willing to go to the streets.”

AOC seems to have forgotten that long-ago decade known as the 60s. The 1960s were filled with protests of all sorts, for civil rights, against the Vietnam War, and for women’s rights. Indeed, the gay rights movement started with an uprising at a bar called Stonewall as the sixties drew to a close.

Protest movements have defined American history. The abolitionist movement, founded in part by one Benjamin Franklin, flared throughout the first two-thirds of the 19th Century, only resolving itself with the Civil War. Indeed, the American Revolution started with protests against taxes and, just before the Battles of Lexington and Concord, against gun confiscation. Women protested for the right to vote for the latter half of the 19th Century and into the early 20th Century until women finally got the right to vote and hold office in 1919.

After the sixties, protests about various issues flared both on the streets and the ballot box. They included the anti-tax protests of the late seventies, the anti-nuclear protests of the early 1980s, and the Tea Party of the past decade.

AOC, therefore, displayed a conspicuous lack of knowledge of American history. Indeed, that ignorance seems to be widely shared by the millennial generation, as Fox News noted.

“Baby Boomers may take exception to Ocasio-Cortez’s slight, especially given studies that indicate a lack of knowledge millennials have when it comes to history. An April 2019 study by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany revealed that two-thirds of millennials polled were not familiar with Auschwitz, and 22 percent said they either had not heard of or were not sure if they had heard of the Holocaust.”

An editorial in Investors Business Daily suggests that schools are not teaching history, except as part of leftist indoctrination. The piece suggests that this ignorance is related to the love of socialism and lack of patriotism exhibited by millennials. The article also notes some profound gaps in millennials’ historical knowledge.

“High school students were also least likely to know who is on Mount Rushmore. Only 35% of them got it right, compared with 71% of boomers. Only 11% could name the rights enumerated in the First Amendment. And more than half of today’s high schoolers believe Barack Obama was a more consequential president than George Washington.”

The IBD article suggests that some reform of how history is taught in public schools is in order. All things considered, AOC and her fellow millennials might do with some remedial education.

Some analysts have noted that if one were to have conducted surveys of the boomer generation, say around 1970, one might get similar results, at least in attitudes if not in historical knowledge, as with the millennials. The boomers proved that maxim to being liberal when young, but more conservative when older. Many hippies of the sixties cut their hair, bought three-piece suits, and became the yuppies (young urban professionals) of the eighties, supporting President Reagan.

Many hold out the hope that the same process with change the millennial generation as they grow older, get jobs, and start getting married and having families. They came of age during a time of economic privation during the Obama years, but with the economy roaring, millennials may discover the joys of capitalism and that their country is not such a bad thing after all. That is the theory anyway.

  2. What a failure. The only reason the USA is even here is a bunch of 20 somethings took to the streets with their guns to protest unfair taxes!!! THOSE DUMB ENOUGH TO FAIL HISTORY IS BOUND TO REPEAT IT!!!

  3. The narrowing of our History being taught is Schools in America started about the same time as Political Correctness was started about 40 years ago to focus our youth towards Socialism. Ten years ago when Obama got into Office he and Michelle stured up racism taking our progress with it back 50+ years. Every chance they had they threw in what ever they could to build up tensions. He even had BLM to the White House for lunch and complained them on there efforts of helping him with his agenda. His actual words were that he totally understood why they were doing what they were doing it for. That was when BLM was Falsely making the Ferguson incident all about race not Facts. They pushed the False Hands Up slogan which never happened. Even with all of the Video and Witnesses Statements and two autopsies one by the State and one by the the parents of Brown proved that the Officer’s shooting was in self defense yet the BLM got the Black Communities to ignore the Facts to keep pushing Racial division.

  4. Maybe AOC should get some history books and read up on America and all of the generations and everything that Americans stood up for in the past and how they did t. She may get learn something before she opens that stupid mouth if hers.

  5. AOC and her So called followers are clueless about US history and world history. The liberal common core school system either lies or changes the facts to support socialism. Some of the new books even change the words in the Constitution! It’s an all out war on our republic. College professors preach the wonders of Communism as though it is “progressive “. There’s nothing progressive about a totalitarian state. Which is what every Communist government becomes quickly.
    We protested and took to the streets before most of the millennials were a thought in their parents eyes.

  6. The ‘mil’ generation she talks about is easily radicalized. That’s what she thinks is using their minds. AOC is just trying to pander to the ‘mils’ by lying to their faces. She offers nothing but an backhanded compliment. I truly hope that she doesn’t believe that she has more intelligence than the average bear (sic).

  7. To bad she does not know History, I don’t think see ever took History. If she did she would know why our forefathers wrote down many things they wanted to keep this country safe and Free from people like her and hitler.

  8. Bartender please make me a drink and please stop talking…let’s toast President TRUMP 2020…BTW AOL YOU ARE FIRED…

  9. It makes everyone smile that will not survive in the 2020 elections. You have to be the dumbest person I have ever listened to, your thinking is that of a disturbed person. Go back to the bar and leave the laws alone, you are unfit and a lousy liar. Spend some of the big bucks and fix that horse mouth of yours.

  10. And I laughed and I laughed and I laughed!!! “She went on to say, after boasting about her generation’s knowledge of history,” If she knew anything about history she wouldn’t be pushing socialism!!!

  11. Wonder why every time I hear anything AOC says, the movie “Idiocracy” comes to mind….quickly followed by “Dumb and Dumber”?

  12. The dumbing down of America where the millennials think they are the smartest generation but don’t know diddly squat about history. That is what happens when you have the PC police saying that everyone deserves a trophy instead of just those who excel at something.

  13. Dear dumbass, with the exception of the liberal Democrat pols in California, you may be the stupidest mother [email protected]#cker to ever serve in the U.S. Congress, and that in and of itself is no small accomplishment. You do have a pretty smile.
