Every now and then an insane Marxist says something that is right but for the wrong reasons.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said it but not for the reasons she thinks:
Ocasio-Cortez tells The New Yorker Radio that she wants to eliminate the entire Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
Question: “Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?”
Ocasio-Cortez responds: “I think so”
DHS was created to protect America in response to 9/11 pic.twitter.com/A8i05visFi— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) July 10, 2019
I like Ryan Saavedra at The Daily Wire and a lot of his writings and works. However, conservatives and Trumpers have become so tone deaf and blind to history, they miss the bigger point:
The Department of Homeland Security should never have come into existence.
The entire 9/11 attack blame could easily have been laid to bare on President George W. Bush who came into office more unprepared than President Trump. And sadly, I might add, as naive as a Girl Scout on a Jeffrey Epstein flight to Lolita Island. However, he only gets partial blame for a lack of understanding, studying, and remedying the problem the minute he came into office.
President Pervert, aka, Bill Clinton allowed our national security apparatus to fall into massive disrepair by exploiting and wasting the peace dividend acquired from America’s so-called victory in the Cold War. Instead of reinforcing our military at a smaller, more strategic level and allowing our diplomatic plus intelligence services to pursue threats lower level operatives were warning about, he politicized all aspects.
Our military was deliberately disrespected with the Clinton crime family ordering no military uniforms to be worn inside the White House during official events. Then our intelligence and Federal law enforcement agencies being overrun with leftist political appointees (see Janet Reno, etc.) and allowing anti-American actions like Waco and Ruby Ridge, and it is no wonder that they could care less about the threat of Islamist terrorism; even though many tried to warn them.
Fast forward to 9/11 and Bush’s plus America’s overreaction to the events of that dreadful day. The Republicans shoved the anti-Constitutional “Patriot Act” through the legislature, Bush signed it and the Department of Homeland Security along with the deliberate deterioration of our freedoms began.
The Republican reaction? Hip hip hooray.
The Democrat reaction? Hip hip hooray.
When the Democrats had an opportunity to repeal this monstrosity in 2009 what did they do? They renewed the law because THEY had control of DHS and the intel community under Obama which gave his administration to spy on Americans he disagreed with and his political enemies. How did that work out for us my fellow Americans and President Trump?
For over 200 years, America successfully defended our nation’s borders without DHS, without TSA, without spying on our own citizens. Yet suddenly because the great bureaucracy failed, it was time to spend literally hundreds of billions of dollars by promoting the same people who failed before 9/11 to prevent another 9/11. It’s only a matter of time before the bureaucrats, not the field agents, screw up again.
Thus why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might be 100% full fledged batshit crazy as a Marxist and a lunatic, she did say what was right, even if she didn’t understand why.
Perhaps a history lesson from Ron Paul would help this dense bartender understand why.
