    I guess that AOC's handlers have made her stop saying anything political anymore that is "off-script" due to her many goofy statements. But thankfully, for AOC fans out there, she still says stupid $hit about non-political things.

    Like her prior amazement at plants growing and now, a garbage disposal. This could have been posted under the "you couldn't make it up thread" as well.

    I guess she is trying to falsely portray that she "was born a poor black child" (sorry, it's a line from Steven Martin's 'The Jerk' movie). But in reality, her family moved to Westchester County when she was around 5 years old, which is a nice place. According to the linked article below, AOC omitted that part from her bio, and portrays herself instead as a Bronx girl.

    I guess she thinks stupid lefties will think it is cute to see her amazed at modern amenities that have existed since the 1950s.

    Ocasio-Cortez likens growing cauliflower to colonialism
    By Max Jaeger

    She’s taking grass-roots activism a little too literally.

    Bronx-Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken aim at cauliflower, claiming that growing the vegetable in community gardens in nonwhite neighborhoods is an act of colonialism.

    “When someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows yuca instead of, I dunno, cauliflower or something, what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman says in an Instagram video for her proposed Green New Deal economic-stimulus package.

    “And that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements — because they come with a colonial lens on them.”

    It appears she was referring to yuca, a regional name for cassava — rather than the desert shrub called yucca. It was not clear who she believed was preventing people of color from planting yuca in community gardens.

    Either way, the tuber is not native to New York — making planting it here also an act of colonization.

    And it doesn’t fare too well in climates such as New York’s, and instead “requires a warm, humid climate” for a good yield, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

    AOC talks about growing yuca and cauliflower in communal gardens.

    “Temperature is important, as all growth stops at about [50 degrees]. Typically, the crop is grown in areas that are frost-free the year round,” according to materials from the agency.

    In poor weather, a yuca plant can take 18 months to produce a crop, the USDA noted.

    Ironically, AOC in another video talked up the Swiss chard, spinach and collard greens she has been growing — even though none of those are native to North America, either.

    Collards are actually part of the same species as cauliflower: Brassica oleracea.

    Meanwhile, the Mexican restaurant where Ocasio-Cortez worked before her dark-horse 2017 election victory sells cauliflower tacos, according to its menu.

    And the plant, whose edible head is all white, has deep roots in New York, according to the Long Island Cauliflower Association.

    The group — which has morphed into an agricultural-supply company — was founded in 1901 after “Island farmers found they could grow high quality cauliflower” but needed to find a way to market it, assistant manager, Mike Joseph told The New York Times in 1995.

    Some of the earliest Long Island Rail Road trains that rumbled from Greenport to Brooklyn were laden with cauliflower, according to historical accounts.

    Ocasio-Cortez did not respond to a request for comment.

    Saw this and had to shake my head. I don't seem to remember the "Mini RBG" getting harassed by livid conservatives.

    I guess any humour the left had got used up pre the 2016 election and all that is left is hate.
