Ocasio-Cortez Brands Republican PAC Ad Racist Because It Burned Her Picture

Ocasio-Cortez Brands Republican PAC Ad Racist Because It Burned Her Picture

But no outrage over the comparison to Pol Pot?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG0T_hVMqLs#action=share

New Faces GOP, a new Republican PAC, ran an ad on ABC in Washington, DC, last night showing a burning picture of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the horrors of the Cambodian genocide.

Twitter is on fire (no pun intended) with AOC condemning the ad as racist. Her sycophants have now started a campaign to #BoycottABC.

Elizabeth Heng, a former congressional candidate from California, developed New Faces PAC as a way to “help identify & support the next generation of GOP leaders.”

Heng is the daughter of Cambodian immigrants. She wrote on the webpage that they “lived through the torment and devastation caused by the evils of socialism.” Pol Pot caused that torment and devastation.

Pol Pot’s Cambodian genocide does not receive the attention it deserves. When people talk about Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, they should mention Pol Pot as well.

Why bring this up? Here’s the ad:

Heng narrates the ad, describing how her parents Chieu Heng and Siv Khoeu fled Cambodia. They escaped the murderous Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot. His “vision” caused Cambodia’s population to fall by 25% between 1975 and 1979. Pol Pot exerted his power through famine, executions, and overworking the citizens. Diseases flourished. It was pure horror.

THAT completely went over AOC’s head. Instead, she went with her usual route: Racism.

Oh, look. A member of the Squad comes to her defense:

Heng fires back:

First off, when did burning pictures of a person come to mean violence? I’m glad this way of thinking did not exist when I was a teenager because I would be screwed. I don’t know how many pictures of ex-boyfriends and ex-friends I burned throughout junior high and high school.

AOC completely missed the point of the ad along with so many people on social media. The whole point was not to pander to white supremacists or to incite violence against AOC. The point of the ad was to showcase the horrors of socialism — a society where individualism does not exist. No freedoms. You do what your betters tell you.

AOC only went to policy after she cried for a long time over her burnt picture:

I don’t like it when AOC compares ICE to Nazis and the holding centers to concentration camps. I don’t like comparing AOC to Pol Pot. As someone mentioned to me on Twitter, there are quite a few steps between AOC’s vision and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge.

Can we all stop comparing people to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot? Unless that person is Kim Jong-un.

I find it odd that AOC and others care more about a burning picture than comparing her to one of the most dangerous regimes our world has ever witnessed. Even her rebuttal to the socialism part of the ad doesn’t really feel like a true rebuttal. I’d be furious if anyone compared me to someone like Pol Pot. You know, like how ICE agents rightfully get angry when someone like AOC calls them Nazis.

The ad worked, though. As I said it only aired on the ABC station in DC, but since it got everyone worked up the entire country has seen it. AOC gave New Faces PAC free publicity along with the rest of the mainstream media.

campfires…anti-free speech for burning newspapers

Another strong, independent, self-confident politician getting the vapors over a campaign ad.

    I could see her getting really upset if she were a Witch, maybe. Perhaps we should ask Marianne about that.

      No, no, if she weighs the same as a duck then she’s a witch and can be burned. It’s science, after all.

        ScottTheEngineer in reply to fast182. | September 13, 2019 at 1:29 pm

        This is known.. You see ducks float. Wood also floats. Therefore if she weighs the same as a duck she’s made of wood and can be burned.
        Its science.

      Marianne’s not a joke. She’s bad but not a joke.

      As noted in the article, Pol Pot had a “vision”. And he acted on it.

      Marianne isn’t Pol Pot. But she did have a very aggression vision of racial “reparations”.

“…there are quite a few steps between AOC’s vision and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge.”

AOC is taking that first step. Ultimately, the destination is inevitable.

    I 100% agree. America if full of brainwashed sheep ready to follow whatever idiot takes the lead. What happened in Khmer Rouge would certainly happen here. Our willingness to forget history and believe what we saw in that ‘youtube video’ will lead us right into the same kind of troubles they are having.

    There are fewer steps between AOC and the Khmer Rouge than people perhaps realize. To be a socialist in the 21st century (whether of the national, international or “democratic” variety) is to knowingly embrace a genocidal ideology.

      The ‘people’ are the steps between AOC and what happened in Khmer Rouge. To be socialist has nothing to do with genocide. genocide happens because people are idiots who let a minority scare a majority, or they let populism rule over common sense. Anyone who thinks socialism automatically means genocide needs to slow down on the reading, and work on the understanding…

        Fifty million victims of socialist genocide were unavailable for comment.

          Sorry. Suggesting independent thought may not have been directed at everyone. Some lack required equipment.

          Every socialist country does the same thing, commit government sponsored mass murder.

          Some are worse than others. Some choose to use the socialized healthcare system to murder it’s sick citizens. Some simply starve them to death and some actively murder. Some do all the above.

          No socialist system is immune from this characteristic.

          This makes you, “orjustthink” a liar.

          You’re not very bright.

“…there are quite a few steps between AOC’s vision and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge.”

once a free people cede their rights and their tools to resist to a government bent on control, we are there

but burning the US flag is “free speech”

or showing a decapitated head with the president’s likeness

“Life is weird!”

No one ever said “let’s help Lenin take power so we can kill 20 millions of our fellow citizens.” It just seems to happen that way, every single time.

AOC may seem harmless, but the policies that she promotes are guaranteed to lead to disastrous consequences. She may be a true believer, or just a useful idiot, but it hardly matters.

    All True That.

    Sandy – OAC the Caucasian descendant of Conquistadors, is crazier than Hilary and Warren crossbred!

    Exactly. It is impossible not not know about socialism’s bloodthirsty nature. To embrace socialism in the 21st century is to (perhaps unconsciously) embrace genocidal.

      AOC may not feel the need to raise her voice against these comparisons simply because she feels that the population of Americans that are educated against believing that socialism has anything to do with genocide is growing. There are still groups that get all their news from fox, but many eyes in this country are opening.

        Socialist always commit genocide. Always.”

        “orjustthink” works in the same room as the other commies that show up here, all dumber than a brick.

    Lenin was supported by a clandestine organization. He was hidden in Brooklyn, then smuggled into Russia to start his insurgency.

    AOC was supported by an organization most of us only heard of well after the election, the Justice Democrats. She was smuggled into a seat via a little watched Dem primary.

    I see similarities in the MO’s.

      You’re thinking of Trotsky.

      Lenin was exiled to Switzerland. The Germans wanted to undermine and topple the Czar and bring an end to the war on the eastern front. They place Lenin on a sealed train and sent him and his entourage to Russia via Finland.

        After the outbreak of the February Revolution, German authorities allowed Lenin and his lieutenants to cross Germany en route from Switzerland to Sweden in a sealed railway car. Berlin hoped, correctly, that the return of the anti-war socialists to Russia would undermine the Russian war effort, which was continuing under the provisional government. Lenin called for the overthrow of the provisional government by the soviets; he was subsequently condemned as a “German agent” by the government’s leaders. In July, he was forced to flee to Finland, but his call for “peace, land, and bread” met with increasing popular support, and the Bolsheviks won a majority in the Petrograd soviet. In October, Lenin secretly returned to Petrograd, and on November 7, the Bolshevik-led Red Guards deposed the Provisional Government and proclaimed soviet rule.

    AOC = useless idiot.

The default position on all criticism of the The Squad is racism and should not be taken as a serious charge. The response to anything AOC says should be ridicule, not serious debate. In fact, I would like to join the #BoycottABC movement since I started about a decade ago.

AOC, you are not a woman of color. Get over the bs. You are white. Period. White. Having a Spanish name, ironically the name of the first European colonialist, does not make you brown.

I find it interesting that in many of the comments, they mention ” burn her picture then show pictures of skulls” . No idea that those are pictures of real atrocities perpetrated in the 1980s – not that long ago. It is not a threat against AOC. It is an actual result of the policies AOC espouses.

not too many steps? no. Her vision sounds great. But what about all the people who do not want to live under her vision of “guarantee healthcare in America.
To make education and housing dignified and accessible.
To save our planet.
To set living wages.
To establish justice at home, & peace abroad.”

what is her plan for those of us who do not want it? I suggest that she will do what other socialist “visionaries” have done.

The point of the ad of course is to show the ugliness of the ideas behind the “pretty face”

Her criticism does detract from this point, but only to idiots that will stop watching and feign outrage like Tlaib.

Bad ad. We have enough violence without adding to it. It detracts from the message of the ad. The face could have dissolved digitally, showing what’s behind AOC’s ideology.

    Barry in reply to Paul B. | September 14, 2019 at 12:52 am

    Perfect add. It has nothing to do with violence. It adds to the message of the ad. The face burns away, showing what’s behind AOC’s ideology.

Kathy Griffin would like a word…

She’s joined forces with and is enabling Jew-hating pieces of sh*t like tlaib and omar.

Let her burn. With them.

Can we all stop comparing people to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot? Unless that person is Kim Jong-un.

This ad does what it supposed to do. Paint a quick picture of where socialism leads.

Sadly, in this modern day society of very short attention spans, we don’t have the time for a Doctor Zhivago film to teach and to entertain us about the horrors of socialism in a pretty movie that shows us the consequences of a totalitarian state on our relationships and our ability to chose for ourselves our own destiny.

    “Knowledge” has nothing to do with the American youngs’ support of socialism. Corruption does. The deal has always been: you can remain an adolescent, as long as you keep voting for us.

    The millenial generation is a group of great hypocrites, who have and happily continue to sell their souls – and our country – for free downloads.
