Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led to strong reactions with & # 39; toon-deaf & # 39; comments about young Americans who are more & # 39; informed & # 39; and & # 39; are willing to take to the streets & # 39; to protest than older generations

29-year-old New York Democrat praised Tuesday & # 39; badass & # 39; millennials and Gen Zers in an Instagram Live video after a viewer asked her if the & # 39; new generation & # 39; & # 39; too delicate & # 39; is.

While clips of her long answer circulated on social media, critics accused her of insulting older Americans and senseless crediting her generation by inventing political protest.

Ocasio-Cortez was beaten because he overlooked some of the most influential movements in American history, such as the protests in the Vietnam war and insist on racial equality in the 1960s.

During the live stream, Ocasio-Cortez stated that she didn't want to paint & # 39; everyone with a broad brush & # 39; before she made a number of statements that did exactly that.

& # 39; I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors, & # 39; she said about her colleagues.

& # 39; I think they are extremely brave, because they are willing to pierce more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes have trouble having. & # 39;

She continued: & # 39; I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they are actually willing to take to the streets. What do you think of that?

& # 39; Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government has it. Let me tell you something: you are the government. As democracy, we, the people, mean you. & # 39;

Ocasio-Cortez told viewers: & I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave, because they are actually willing to take to the streets. Previous generations have just assumed that [the] government has it. & # 39; She leaned over to the camera and added: & Let me tell you something: you are the government. As democracy, we, the people, mean you & # 39;

Ocasio-Cortez also claimed that younger generations understand history better than the previous ones.

& # 39; They take the time to read and understand our history, the history of the labor movement, the history of civil rights, the history of the economy, the history of colonialism, and they are not afraid of those conversations to enter, & # 39; she said.

Many people call the diatribe tone-deaf and offensive to older Americans, who have caused some of the most profound changes the nation has ever seen during their youth.

Political activism in America is older than the country itself, given that the establishment of the country was largely driven by the Boston Tea Party.

Another milestone campaign that overlooked Ocasio-Cortez, the Suffragette movement, gave her and every woman in America the most basic form of political engagement: the right to vote.

The efforts of the Second World War by those born in the first two decades of the 19th century earned them the nickname & # 39; The greatest generation & # 39; on.

And just a few decades ago, America saw one of its most turbulent political periods, the 1960s, when the nation was startled by the fight against McCarthyism, desegregation, and protests in the Vietnam war.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose frequent controversial comments have cemented her as one of the country's most divisive politicians, has yet to respond to the backlash.
