That’s it folks! The upper middle-class in America doesn’t exist anymore, and Furbies, soccer moms, and mini-vans, are a thing of the past. This was the declaration made by the new darling of the Left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in a Tuesday interview on Pod Save America.
Ocasio-Cortez has been described as the future of the Democratic Party; a young, female version of Bernie Sanders. Ocasio-Cortez was asked that, in light of Democrat losses in 2016, if her democratic-socialist vision for America is bound to fail. In her response, Ocasio-Cortez suggested that, if only the old, white, House Democrats weren’t stuck in the ‘90s with soccer moms and Furbies, we would have been living the democratic-socialist dream way before now. Clearly and succinctly, Ocasio-Cortez stated:
“… when you know, like, kids had like, Furbies, and like parents, you had like soccer moms had, like, two vans, and like… that’s not America anymore.”
Clearly, she believes Americans should be over soccer moms and minivans.
Progressive politicians like Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, don’t hide the fact that they hate traditional America, and have a pathological desire to destroy its foundations and traditions. Any “deplorable” American who opposes the progressive agenda must be bullied into silence.
Though free speech is a right guaranteed to all by the Constitution, and a foundational pillar of true liberalism, progressives are so over free speech. Anything they cannot control, they must redefine; therefore, speech that is not sanctioned by progressive ideology is labeled “hate speech.”
College professors are so over traditional class subjects; they now indoctrinate students in progressive subjects, like gender studies, and the ideology of hatred for America. Students are trained as social justice warriors, ready to fight some unseen form of fascism and intolerable “hate speech.”
While many students can’t even tell you who America fought in the War for Independence, they’re well-trained in protesting, blocking traffic, and shouting people down who don’t agree with them.
One small mob of college students assaulted Candace Owens, a young, black, conservative activist, at a Philadelphia restaurant. After being shouted down by restaurant employees, she was met by a group of infantile, whistle-blowing college students who screamed into her ear with a megaphone, and called her a white supremacist. They had no interest in exchanging ideas with her, they just knew she was a white supremacist.
One of the most beloved traditions of American culture is patriotism, and the morning recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in school. Progressives are so over the Pledge of Allegiance. Nowadays, many public-school students no longer recite the pledge. But, while the pledge is out, “Drag Queen Story Hour” is in. That’s right. Drag queens are being invited into the classroom to read stories promoting homosexuality to first-grade children.
At a Brooklyn, New York elementary school, this program is described as a “fun and interactive platform to talk and think about social and emotional issues like acceptance, being yourself, and loving who you are. The program captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”
Men who dress as drag queens are considered glamorous role models, and all those first-grade children will, one day, love themselves once they come to realize they are drag queens. This is nothing more than a perverted form of child abuse, used by the left to advance the idea of “gender fluidity” on young children.
Progressives are so over traditional male and female role models. Americans have always considered masculinity in men as healthy and attractive, but the Left has labeled masculinity as “toxic.” Masculine men are portrayed by progressives as aggressive, violent, destructive, womanizers who need to be feminized in order to become more acceptable to the new order of society.
While the Left finds joy in tearing men down, traditional Americans are proud of the bravery men have displayed in fighting wars; crossing oceans to discover new lands; laboring in the sun to build cities, roads, and bridges; confronting criminals; battling fires, and putting themselves in harm’s way to protect women and children.
Progressives will remain in a perpetual state of outrage until they regain control of this country. Socialism has never succeeded in any country and Americans love their freedom and traditions too much to allow socialism to take over now.
Soccer moms are driving SUVs, the upper middle-class is the fastest growing segment in America, and Furby has made a comeback. Rock on America!
