Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., makes an objection to a Republican argument as the House Oversight and Reform Committee considers whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

Much of the lackluster American intelligensia, or what passes for it, seems to have an inability to distinguish glib from intelligent (that’s how late night comedians became the thought leaders of the Democrat party). This is certainly the case with freshman communist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. If any other human had uttered the patent nonsense that has emanated from this person’s mouth, they would have been given the Dan Quayle treatment long ago. But because of the effortless and pseudo-lucid way in which she spouts stunningly stupid statements, people claim she’s smart. (To be frank, much of this is pushed by sexually frustrated hipsters who thing if they White Knight her that she may notice them. Seriously, when was the last time you heard a member of Congress praised for a high school science fair project? Or being called a “scholar” because you have a bachelor’s degree?)

But what happens when she goes up against someone who actually understands the subject matter, who is smart, and who recognizes that AOC compares unfavorably to your random bag of clawhammers? We now have the answer to that.

Former Border Patrol Chief and former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan testified before the House Oversight Committee today. He came loaded for bear. He slammed unnamed members of Congress who had denigrated Border Patrol and ICE agents. And told Congress if they didn’t like the situation that they should fix it. But the real fireworks came when AOC tried to show off her intelligence.

Guys I’m not going to give you a transcript of this because I want you to watch it.

Even Vox.com couldn’t ignore the beat down.

AOC tried to respond with more of her SuperiorKnowledgeTM

But that is bullsh**, too. People seeking asylum remain free to apply for asylum at ports of entry, they simply have to stay in Mexico or Canada while their case is adjudicated.

This woman is profoundly and dangerously stupid. It isn’t because she can’t learn. It is because she has convinced herself, and has had that conviction reinforced by the media and other influencers, that she already possesses a masterly of every subject from immigration policy to economics to climatology. The only lesson she learned from this is that some old white guy didn’t kiss her butt. But I think a lot of other people are learning something very, very different.
