Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweets support for pot, reparations, free stuff

It’s no secret that newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is about as radical as a leftist can get.  On Tuesday, she tweeted support for a laundry list of radical ideas, which included reparations, legalized marijuana and student loan cancellation.

She also tweeted support for her so-called “Green New Deal,” a proposal to destroy the U.S. economy for an entire generation of Americans.

“A few social media ideas for public servants looking to build an audience: – Endorse Single-Payer Medicare for All – Hold Wall Street Accountable – Make Min Wage = Living Wage – Cancel Puerto Rican Debt – End For-Profit Prisons & ICE Detention – Fight for a ,” she said on Twitter.

She followed that up with this:  “A few more ways to gain traction: – Support a Federal Jobs Guarantee – Bailout Student Debt – Legalize Marijuana & Explore Reparations, Baby Bonds…”

The response on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect.  There was a lot of support, but a number of Twitter users took Ocasio-Cortez to task for her irresponsible pie-in-the-sky suggestions.

Indeed.

Please don’t give her any more ideas…

Free Tesla automobiles?  Hmmm…

“Free stuff and pot.”  That pretty much sums it all up.  Of course, it’s all on the backs of taxpayers…  But that really doesn’t matter to socialists like Ocasio-Cortez or her followers.

One person added:

Sadly, it’s not.  Although we sometimes wish it were.
