The radical left isn’t content with just defunding the police.
They want to destroy every institution that keeps Americans safe.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to make this huge change to our military.
It used to be that Democrats were just focused on disarming the American population and trying to get rid of their firearms.
But that’s clearly only the first step in their agenda.
Currently Democrats are trying to disarm the police by cutting their budget and keeping them promoting insane regulations that are keeping Americans from doing their job.
But Rep. Ocasio-Cortez isn’t willing to stop there, she wants to try to limit the military too.
She’s proposing legislation that would defund military recruiters that work in high schools.
“Whether through recruitment stations in their lunchrooms, or now through e-sports teams, children in low-income communities are persistently targeted for enlistment,” the New York congresswoman said in a statement. The military “can for some provide a rewarding career,” but “low-income Americans are not being given anywhere near the same information or access to trade schools, college or other post graduate opportunities.”
Ocasio-Cortez is ignoring the fact that the military provides many tools that help with social mobility like healthcare and educational opportunity.
It also provides an escape from poverty and abuse for many young people while they do meaningful work and the military can give many people the experience they need to succeed in the workplace without student debt.
“In many public high schools where military recruiters have a daily presence, there is not even a counselor,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “As a result, the military stops feeling like a ‘choice’ and starts feeling like the only option for many young, low-income Americans.”
She also bemoaned that fact that the military is reaching out to adults through video game communities’ like Twitch.
“It’s incredibly irresponsible for the Army and the Navy to be recruiting impressionable young people and children via live streaming platforms,” Ocasio-Cortez told Vice. “War is not a game, and the Marine Corps’ decision not to engage in this recruiting tool should be a clear signal to the other branches of the military to cease this practice entirely.”
Military recruiters don’t force anyone to join the armed services, adults make choices for themselves, but Ocasio-Cortez wants to have a nation where she is making the choices for everyone else.
This isn’t a new idea for Ocasio-Cortez, she has spoken about cutting the military for years in order to pay for her wild socialist measures.
Back in 2018 Ocasio-Cortez explained to “The Daily Show” that the military didn’t want more money.
Ocasio-Cortez wants to expand her radical social programs that would bankrupt America.
