Ben Stein: Ocasio-Cortez Is Promising ‘The Same Kinds Of Things’ As Hitler ,
Ben Stein on Tuesday claimed policies advocated by freshman lawmaker Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) “invariably lead to bad things,” including genocide.
The actor, former speechwriter to President Richard M. Nixon, and political commentator even made comparisons to Adolf Hitler.
Ocasio-Cortez has made headlines for advocating higher marginal tax rates of up to 70 percent on earnings past $10 million in income as well as a “Green New Deal” to tackle the climate crisis.
But in a Fox Business clip posted online by Media Matters, Stein claimed her democratic socialist politics will lead to dictatorship and genocide:
Stein said the current system “works extremely well” and “allows people to make something of themselves instead of oppressing other people” as they try to earn money.
“Making money is one of the most of harmless things there is to do in the whole world,” he said. “And that’s what our
society is about.”
Alexandria would be shocked to learn that the majority of billionaires in the world are Socialist or Communist. They gain political power by promising you free things that they use other people’s money…not thier own of course…to buy your vote.
Once they are in power they destroy or chase the Non-Socialist wealthy to countries that don’t tax them to death, just like Venezuala did, and the economy collapses. As Maragret Thatcher wisely observed: “The problem with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
On Fox Business, Ben Stein compares Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rhetoric to Hitler, warns about mass murder and genocide .
We failed to take away Ben Stein’s money when we had the chance. Ben Stein’s party literally built internment camps for children. In the United States.
