In this piece, we posed the following questions:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to Boston Frickin’ University for cryin’ out loud! Do they not teach math there? Did the rest of AOC’s education fail her too? Or is she just stupid?
Ocasio-Cortez is the so-called “Democratic Socialist”(1) who won a primary in New York’s 14th District to replace Democrat Congressman Joe Crowley.
Here are the possible answers our questions:
- They do not teach math at BU.
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t a real admission to BU, but an affirmative action one.
- BU might not teach math in any meaningful way… to affirmative action students
- Yes, the rest of Ocasio-Cortez’ education failed her.
- Yes, she’s just stupid.
- All of the above.
I fear that the real answer is #5.
(1) In the above-linked post, we pointed out that this is a nonsense term. It’s like calling someone a nice meanie. You’re one or the other, you can’t be both.
