Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez oddly claimed that millennials are more “informed” than older generations, praising young people for protesting and going to “the streets.”
AOC was asked by a fan whether she thought young people were “delicate” during an Instagram live stream. She proclaimed: “No! I don’t think they’re too delicate at all. I think that…they’re badass.”
“I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors. Um, I think that they are more sensitive in a positive way, in that they actually care about other people’s experiences and lives.”
AOC on Instagram live:
“Young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors… they actually take time to read and understand our [world] history.”

She proceeded to praise the “radical acceptance” that young people show.
Then, she declared that young people are “willing to go to the streets,” unlike the “previous generations.”
“I think this new generation is very profound, and very strong, and very brave because they’re actually willing to go to the streets. How bout that? Like, previous generations have just assumed that government’s got it.”

I’m the same age as her & couldn’t disagree more. Our peers and younger have unprecedented access to information but squander it on the superfluous rather than utilize it to deepen our understanding of history.
Hence the toxic seeds of socialism taking root despite dire history.

Can AOC just stop saying words?

If I’m understanding correctly, she’s insinuating that history will be told on how they feel or perceive, and not how it actually was?!

Young people have more information and technology at their disposal than any generation in history; yet understand it the least. pic.twitter.com/6sWS2ZCZdF

she has the “OMG-I am saying really stupid things and people actually believe me” look on her face- same look my husband has when he is telling me something that he knows is BS & thinks it’s funny

If that were true, there would be fewer young people advocating for Socialism…

AOC doesn’t know the difference between “informed” and “indoctrinated.”
Someday soon she will once again be an average bartender.

Of course she would think they’re informed. She, herself would fail a basic exam on civics, geography, economics, philosophy, meteorology or any number of other fields of study. You can stump most young people now by asking them why that war in the 60’s was called “Viet Nam.”

AOC makes this stuff up as she goes along. Look at her as she’s speaking, looking for words in her mind just to complete her sentences.

That’s literally the opposite of the truth.

AOC’s comment on this issue is so far off base. The difference between the young and their “predecessors” is while the young MAY read and understand history (which I tend to doubt), their predecessors actually lived it.
