AOC Thinks She’s Like Eva Peron
AOC Thinks She’s Like Eva Peron
July 7, 2019
According to a new book, President Trump compared Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Eva Peron. During an interview for the upcoming book American Carnage, Trump described AOC to author Tim Alberta this way:
“I see a young woman ranting and raving like a lunatic on a street corner, and I said: ‘That’s interesting, go back.”
“She’s got talent. Now, that’s the good news. The bad news: she doesn’t know anything. She’s got a good sense, an ‘it’ factor, which is pretty good, but she knows nothing. But with time, she has real potential.”
”I called her Eva Peron. I said, ’That’s Eva Peron. That’s Evita.’”
Is that gonna leave a mark? Not if you’re Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In fact, you’re likely to wear the appellation like a badge of honor.

So that’s just what she did.
AOC returned fire by quoting Evita:
“I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina's wealth and power in their hands. So the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go.”
– Evita Perón

However, she might want to rethink that. Yeah, I know Eva was Latina and supposedly a heroine to the Argentinian people. There was also that movie Evita, starring Madonna, which got tons of acclaim.
But there’s that little problem about Eva and her husband Juan Peron, who together ran Argentina (hello, Bill and Hillary!) while hiding Nazi officials after World War II.
Apparently Eva and Juan gave refuge to many Nazis in the days after World War II, including Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele. In return the Nazis gave Argentina’s first lady treasures that they had stolen from wealthy Jewish families.
Moreover, Juan Peron himself talked about “goods of German and Japanese origin” that he and Evita appropriated.
Lo and behold, two years ago some 75 Nazi artifacts were discovered in a hidden room in Buenos Aries, Argentina.
So while Ocasio-Cortez tells tales about “concentration camps” at the southern border, she admires someone who sheltered real Nazis, including Adolf Eichmann, the father of the Final Solution.
On top of that, Eva Peron also bullied private industries to fork over cash so she could redistribute the goodies. She also forwarded public funds to her cronies and pet causes without a care. As she once said:
“Keeping books on social aid is capitalistic nonsense. I just use the money for the poor. I can’t stop to count it.”
On second thought, that all sounds like something AOC would love to do — rip off successful people and redistribute it all.
However, such shenanigans also drove down the Argentinian peso and trashed the economy, which is what AOC would do to America.
However, there’s one way in which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly parallels Eva Peron: her craving for attention. Peron once said, “My biggest fear in life is to be forgotten.” Ocasio-Cortez may be only a freshman member of congress, but she’s obsessed with getting her name plastered everywhere. So perhaps Donald Trump was correct — AOC is just like Eva Peron.
