National Catholic Reporter: AOC is the future of the Catholic Church

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning speech on the House floor last week has been called "a comeback for the ages," "the most important feminist speech in a generation" and "a lesson in sexism and decency." I just call it "truth." As I listened to her 10-minute address on the House floor, I was struck by how often it referenced Catholic values.

Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly railed against the "dehumanizing" of others and instead called for treating people with dignity and respect. These are themes often repeated by Pope Francis, who has specifically cautioned about gossip and urged the use of respectful language, saying "it is possible to kill someone with the tongue."

Instead, the congresswoman gave what sounded like a pretty good description of what goes on in the Sacrament of Reconciliation: "When a decent man messes up, as we all are bound to do, he tries his best and does apologize. Not to save face, not to win a vote, he apologizes genuinely to repair and acknowledge the harm done so that we can all move on."

Perhaps such Catholic references are not surprising, since the rock-star millennial leader of the left grew up Catholic and even wrote about how her faith influences her views on public policies such as mass incarceration, for a Catholic magazine.

As a young Latina, Ocasio-Cortez represents the demographic future of the Catholic Church. But — if there is to be a future for the Catholic Church in the United States — it must also resemble Ocasio-Cortez in her passion for justice and human dignity, and in her courage and integrity, even in the face of vulgar attacks.

The National Catholic Reporter is a progressive rag. They’re clearly full of shit.

I would like this thread before I go to bed, but anything AOC, Far left socialist, borderline communist having anything to do with the government in this country would keep me awake, then give me night distress or make me notated to the point that I would expel the fine beer and pizza I have eaten.

AOC represents the future of America: women who refuse to be silenced

Hello? Police? I’d like to report a murder. On Thursday Republican congressman Ted Yoho was elegantly eviscerated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the House floor. In just under 10 minutes, the New York congresswoman made Yoho look like the yahoo he is, and delivered a searing indictment of structural sexism. Do watch the full speech if you haven’t already – it’s a masterclass in responding to misogyny. It wasn’t just the content of Ocasio-Cortez’s speech that was powerful, it was the way she delivered it. There was a carefully controlled fury in her voice that every woman will be familiar with.

The only thing that irritates men like Yoho more than an outspoken woman is an outspoken woman who also has the temerity not to be white. “I cannot apologize for my passion or for loving my God, my family and my country,” Yoho told the House. The subtext of that, of course, is that women like Ocasio-Cortez do not belong in “his” country. As Ocasio-Cortez pointed out in her speech, it’s a sentiment she hears a lot: “The president of the United States last year told me to go home to another country, with the implication that I don’t even belong in America.”

Guess what? Ocasio-Cortez isn’t going anywhere. She represents the future of America: women who refuse to be silenced, refuse to “know their place”, and refuse to apologize for their passion.

Free college, guaranteed universal income, free health care and the green new deal. What could possible go wrong!

This is the face of the Democrat Party in 2020. No one should carry the fantasy that Biden is in charge or that moderates would have any say. This is the mass people's movement- communism.

Trump haters: You get one chance to stop the Dems from doing this. This is it. Don't let hatred cause you to make this mistake because you hate one man. The ideas that Trump has (and yes he can be a jerk) are distinctly American. The ideas of the Democrat party are Marxist. Voting for Biden is not voting for a kinder gentler America, it is voting for the evil that is communism/Marxism. That is what is at stake.

Obviously, persuasion isn't your forte.

I remember when howie used to say that AOC was just another House representative.

Now she’s practically running the Democrat Party.

Well then, I guess since Catholicism meshes so nicely with AOC's value system, that probably means that AOC will be begging Trump to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to take the place of RBG on SCOTUS, and she will be carrying a torch outside Mitch's house threatening "we're gonna burn it all down" unless Mitch expedites the approval of Amy from Notre Dame.

Where's Biden??? :)
In the Alzheimer's ward of the nursing home as of December 2020.

Or if he wins, perhaps he'll last it out until Inauguration Day 2021, at which event he will announce that he's passing the keys of the kingdom on to Harris and Pelosi and AOC.

Unions serve a useful purpose (or at least they used to) to keep in line the greed of the upper class. Unfortunately, that timeline showing how the blue line is affected by the red (union membership) line is not the complete picture. In fact, it omits the most significant causal factor: the fact that US industry was shipping unionizable jobs off to China during much of that long decline in unions from 1980 through 2020.

The decline in union membership was largely due to slicing and dicing up our economy and sending it abroad to China and elsewhere, not due to traditional union-busting that may have been prominent earlier.

Who do we have to thank for that? People like Joe Biden, who has been ever the friend of China. Sure, Nixon took the first steps to open up relations with China, but Biden took over from there as the quarterback of shipping the guts of our economy to China.

Well, in fairness to Marjorie Taylor Greene, she doesn't have a cadre of Yale scholars writing all her speeches like AOC does. But in credit to AOC, she does do a much better job of reading off the teleprompter than Joe Biden.

If legitimate communist threat is not enough to persuade an American, I'm not sure what is. BTW an all things AOC thread is completely hilarious. Kudos to whomever opened this.
