Let us whisper it. AOC is an idiot, and it says much about the canker of infantile leftism corrupting the DNC that someone like her can not merely survive her serial misspeaking but bask in it. In a typically tortured locution she recently opined “There's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” a sentiment which captures perfectly the post truth world of millennial socialist angst. You actually can’t, needless to say, make morally edifying choices without acknowledging the costs on real people, and nothing illustrates the costs of these spasms of infantile leftism more than the infamous 3-billion-dollar tax break propsed for Amazon. As I write, tens of thousands of New Yorkers (not least amongst her treasured Latino constituency) have been denied a sorely needed injection of jobs and capitalism because of a category error in logic. This is a basic category mistake of logic which has ruined lives and to excuse this as the flipside of a pure heart is simply nauseating. It is barely dignified in children let alone a 30 year old economics graduate (please decertify Boston!). The payback? Roaring popularity amongst the dumbest generation pullulating inanely in the DNC’s activist ranks, and a moral platform to drivel on about concentration camps and sport her shaky victim credentials.This is narcissism elevated to a political creed, and God help America if it folds before this orgy of culture death in 2020. Were the UK not more decadent, I would call for a revocation of the Treaty of Versailles.
Fergus, you are assuming of your readers (me) an understanding of most of what you are writing. 'AOC is an idiot' I understand and agree with, but from there on your thoughts run into one another, e.g. I know nothing of this tax break. How does it affect jobs, and what is the basic logic mistake? I thought post truths appeal to emotion rather than logic? I live in the UK, but am not calling for revocation of Versailles; and who or what is Boston to decertify? I just don't 'get' any of it, but so very much want to understand in order to share with my like-minded friends.

Headline gotcha at least two readers. Wonder what caught Bob's attention.
