Following a visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and seeing “The Great Leap,” Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to share her thoughts with a photo of the text on display as well as stipulating her mood as an “American Revolutionary.” She was promptly trolled by such conservatives as Ben Shapiro, who tweeted in response, “Wait until you hear about their perspective on limited government and individual rights!” “The Great Leap,” of course, concerns America’s overthrow of British rule in favor of freedom. AOC would rather throw us back under oppression–not of a king but of a massive socialist bureaucracy.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
Far-left Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said online Wednesday night that she felt like an “American revolutionary” — and was promptly mocked by conservatives.
Ocasio-Cortez posted the remark after she apparently visited “The Great Leap” at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and tweeted out a photo that matches the text of a display featured at the museum:
The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”
But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?
