New York Democrat Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has gone from referring to herself as “vibrant and energetic” to now claiming she feels like an “American revolutionary.”
Amazing how much someone can change just weeks after being elected as a member of Congress.
On Wednesday night, the 29-year-old socialist took to Twitter after she visited “The Great Leap” at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
She tweeted out a photo matching the text on display at the museum.
The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”
But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?
She captioned her tweet: “Mood: American Revolutionary.”

Her bizarre tweet drew scorn from several conservatives on Twitter.
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro tweeted, “Wait until you hear about their perspective on limited government and individual rights!”

Several other users slammed the socialist for her numerous gaffes and embarrassing comments.
Was this before or after they created the 3 chambers of government? https://t.co/lOZRYyq9z5

You do realize that the ideology you promote is almost directly in line with that of the French Revolution and contrary to that of the American revolution

You must not k ow history. The revolution was about taxation. The policies you want to enact will place crippling taxes on us all.

Aside from getting brutally mocked for claiming she feels like an “American revolutionary,” Ocasio-Cortez has made a habit out of making controversial and outlandish comments.
Earlier this week, the Democratic darling tweeted that she wants 5,000 caseworkers sent to the U.S.-Mexico border instead of American troops.
On Monday, the 29-year-old socialist argued that sending troops to the border created a “moral crisis” and that the only solution was to send caseworkers to speak with and assist illegal aliens.
“What if instead of sending 5k troops to the border, we had sent 5k caseworkers to review + process visa applications? In addition to averting moral crisis, it also would’ve saved enormous amt of resources. But we don’t talk about the financial recklessness of GOP admins, do we?” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
On Sunday, a large group of migrants rushed the port of entry connecting Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California and threw rocks at U.S. officials.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, with assistance from some of the troops President Donald Trump sent to the border, closed the port of entry and used tear gas in an attempt to send the migrants back toward Mexico.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to condemn the U.S. for securing the border and forbidding the migrants from freely entering the country.
“Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

The 29-year-old socialist was comparing people who attacked U.S. federal Border Patrol agents with rocks to innocent Jews who attempted to flee during World War II to escape being murdered by the Nazis.
Last week, she argued that we are all going to die soon if we don’t address climate change.
The day before Thanksgiving, she took to Twitter to lash out at “Republican commentators” who she claims are “stalking” her on social media.
Before that, Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”
As most learned in their middle school history class, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive, and judicial.
