GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): So the socialist darling from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has picked a new fight. This headline from the New York Post, spells out her position on Afghanistan. AOC thinks the war was disastrous and wrong. The woman whose Green New Deal promises to figure out a way to handle cows that pass gas, is now crapping on patriotism and of course national security. She makes me sick. As someone who grew up in New York -- I did, so did she -- I know the depths and despair that followed in the days following the 9/11 attacks. I was there, one of the first reporters to make it to ground zero. My friends lost lives at the hands of Islamic extremists. I know what it did to this country and I know how it unified us in a global fight against terrorism, a fight that is still going on today. What is troubling is AOC is from New York too but she clearly doesn’t care, because she is so self-absorbed, she can’t feel the impact of a horrific terrorist attack. Clearly she is oblivious to the fact that terrorists were and still are using Afghanistan as a base to wage their holy war. Instead of realizing our military must do everything it can to stop these jihadists over there before they get here, she focuses on a fake tragedy, like having to wait a few weeks for her paycheck when she got elected to office and moved to Washington, D.C.
