AOC Says Stop Having Children
AOC Says Stop Having Children
In our latest installment of “Sh*t AOC Says,” we find that our ballsy but braindead congressgirl from NYC has yet more advice for the nation. That’s because we might all die in 12 years from climate change unless we do something!
And now she wonders if it’s moral to have children. Yes, she went there. I’m sorry — I know it’s painful to roll your eyes into the back of your head, but here we are.
In another one of those weird Democratic videos wherein we watch them at the dentist, or drinking beer, we find Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chopping vegetables with a really dull knife. It’s then that she ruminates on the morality of human reproduction:
“There is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult, and it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question.”
“Is it okay to still have children?”
Why is it a moral question? Well, because children are damned expensive, and millennials have too much college debt:
“Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, $100,000 worth of student loan debt, and so they can’t even afford to have kids and a house, but also just this basic moral question, like what do we do?”
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe grow up and quit whining?
“And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to leave a better world for them.”
You mean, the children she would let live, since AOC belongs to the political party that’s all about abortion anytime, for any reason.
Here’s a video of the latest “Sh*t AOC Says”:
Now let’s break this down, shall we?
First of all, let’s see where the United States stands as regards its rate of reproduction.
In examining the fertility rates of 200 nations, we see that the US ranks 135th. In addition, we’re not reproducing ourselves, either — in 2019 our birth rate is 1.886 children per woman. The top birth rate award goes to Niger, with 7.153 children per woman. Second goes to Somalia, with 6.123 children per woman.
Now both of these nations are Muslim-majority. Do you think they would care what AOC says? Perhaps she can take a trip there to convince them of her wisdom.
Yeah, that’ll work.
But we’ve seen this rodeo before, when so-called experts with their hair on fire tried to convince us to stop having those stinking babies!
The most famous of the town criers was Paul Ehrlich, an entomologist at Stanford University. In 1968 — that’s 51 years ago — he wrote a book called The Population Bomb. The first sentence in the book read:
“The battle to feed all of humanity is over.”
Cheery fellow, wasn’t he?
However, Ehrlich’s book not only made population control an acceptable topic for debate, it also launched human rights abuses worldwide. Places like Egypt, South Korea, India, and others forced contraception and sterilization. Moreover, we all know about China’s one-child policy, which has led to the horrors of forced abortions, among other problems.
Ehrlich’s dire predictions of the end of the world didn’t pan out, did they? We’re still here!
So let’s review what AOC, the junior Tyrant-in-Training, would have in store for us if she were really in charge — like she thinks she already is.
Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.
Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats. https://t.co/h3KSJhHqDN

And quit eating so many damned hamburgers — those cattle who provide us such deliciousness fart waaaay too much.
Oh, and one more thing. Stop using plastic bags. AOC says she wishes they didn’t exist.

Now AOC’s House term will be up in 2020, and there are some Democrats who see the handwriting on the wall. They know she’s Looney Tunes, and they think it might be wise to find someone more level-headed to challenge her in a primary. But I hope she’s re-elected. After all, the more that sensible voters see of her, the more likely they’ll be to vote Republican in their own elections. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is, as they say, the gift that keeps on giving.
