Rep. Boebert of Colorado is back at it, this time torching the socialist Rep. AOC of New York for, well, being a crazy socialist whose policies, if implemented, would likely lead to an absolute disaster.
Everyone knows that, as the long history of socialism is one of bloodshed, slavery to the state, and misery so wrenching that even a Medieval peasant or Russian serf would count himself lucky when viewing the state of states like North Korea or the Khmer Rouge.
Unfortunately, however, when Republicans attack socialism generally or individual socialists like AOC or Bernie Sanders specifically, the attacks seem a bit cringe-worthy. They’re not particularly well thought out, interesting, or clever, and are instead just throwbacks to the Cold War despite the Cold War no longer happening.
Not Rep. Boebert. She tore into the miserable, bleak, socialist state of America today with a tweet referencing George Orwell’s 1984 and the grayness of socialist states, saying:
1984 called and they want their bleak, immoral, thuggish and deadly totalitarian dystopian future back.
AOC evidently wasn’t happy with that portrayal of socialism creating such a bleak world, as she tried to fire back at Boebert with an insulting response, saying:
Hey quick question Boebert, did you ask for a pardon after tweeting the Speaker’s location on Jan 6th?
You and the KKK Caucus have been really quiet about it today and given how much y’all have to say I’m not sure why no one’s responding to this simple question
“KKK Caucus”; apparently AOC forgot the Democrat roots of the KKK. Maybe she can ask Hillary Clinton’s mentor and colleague, Richard Byrd, a KKK officer, about it.
Boebert then turned from the general issue of socialism to AOC herself and the bleak future of the Democratic party in a hilarious response, saying:
Ok Sandy, $5 a gallon gas, 3+ million illegals crossing our southern border, no baby formula, inflation higher than it’s been in both of our lifetimes, and this is what you want to talk about?

Your policies are failing America, and you’re going to lose the House come November 😘 https://t.co/AmOT13TWGe
