Rubio went off on AOC recently, tearing her to pieces on Hannity for championing the evil ideology of socialism and claiming that it is good but capitalism is “irredeemable.” Speaking on her, Rubio said:
“hose comments are the mainstream of the Democratic Party. They woke up and decided that Marxism is right and the Cold War should not have ended. I don’t understand why they don’t move to it another country. In the real world and I neighborhood I grew up in and my family, capitalism is not big corporations…
Hannity responded by further tearing into AOC and the ridiculous policies that she champions, showing how the preferred policies of the far left lead only to disaster saying:
She wants this green new deal. Cradle to grave and redistribution of wealth. I have a heard time undering where this belief that government can be successful, the same government that bankrupted Social Security and Medicare…
Hannity went on to give further examples of how Big Government leftists have wrecked everything yet still demand more and more levels of control, using whatever power they grab to further wreck things, as they did with the social safety net.
At that point Rubio took the opportunity to blow up on socialism and describe it as being about power and control, not affecting noble ideals:
Socialism is not about economics. It’s a big mistake that we make. Socialism has nothing to do… it’s about power. It’s about the ability to control people. If you control where people work, if you control how much they make, if you control who owns what, then you can control what they say. You can control who they can hire. You can control what they can sell, what they can do, what hours they can open.
It’s about power. It’s about control. That’s what socialism has always been about. Socialism, ultimately, is not possible. The socialism [AOC is] talking about, and they talk about is really not possible without a government that actually controls every aspect of your life…
Rubio then turned to showing how the socialist predilictions of the left lead it to either not care about things like inflation, things that wreak havoc on the economy and the average American’s life but give socialists the opportunity to slip in and push their evil ideology.
That’s why I don’t think they’re that troubled by inflation. I think they like the fact that inflation’s run amok and that prices are high because that just means that they can come in with the argument that, ‘You see, the market can’t provide for your needs, only a government check can, only a government guarantee can.’
Finally, he ended by combining both arguments to show how the left has fused bad economics and a cynical use of power to give them the control they desire, a level of control that pushes others to flee when they’re able or suffer if they have to stay.
It plays right into their hands, but again, socialism is not about economics. It’s about power. It’s about control. That’s why people flee it. That’s why Miami, you know, has inherited 800,000 to a million people from Latin America who flee socialism because it fails and it destroys lives.
Rubio is right, both about socialism and people like AOC. It’s an evil, corrupt ideology and AOC should go try it out. Hopefully she has fun in Venezuela or North Korea.
