AOC barks about a racist robot dog

Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused a robotic police dog of racism in a bizarre string of tweets.

AOC may be barking up the wrong tree.

The Daily Mail reported, "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has denounced the NYPD's new crime-fighting robot dog, appearing to accuse the department of racism for deploying the device for testing in only low-income communities of color.

"The Democratic firebrand blasted the police department's four-legged 'Digidog' in a succession of Thursday tweets, two days after the cyber hound was filmed responding to a home invasion in her home borough of the Bronx.

" 'Shout out to everyone who fought against community advocates who demanded these resources go to investments like school counseling instead,' she wrote.

" 'Now robotic surveillance ground drones are being deployed for testing on low-income communities of color with under-resourced schools.'

"Ocasio-Cortez then argued that police funding that allows for new technology like the Digidog would have better served the community if it had been allotted to programs for education or housing."

Fact check: The United States spends about $750 billion a year on public education using local, state, and federal dollars.

New York City spends $28,000 per student.

Digidog costs $75,000. 

Let's see, that works out to 7 cents a student for 1,126,000 students.

Eureka. She found 7 cents to improve the education of every student in New York City.

Her argument is that the robot dog is racist because it is deployed to poor neighborhoods, particularly those with non-white people.

Well, that is where the crime is. Call it white privilege or whatever, but street crime is much lower in affluent neighborhoods. And crime is the main reason people leave poor neighborhoods.

But liberals have been calling that white flight for nearly a century now, so AOC is just parroting what she was taught in college.

The Daily Mail reported, "The blue and black rover, which weighs approximately 70 pounds, is equipped with lights, two-way communication, and video cameras, the department said.

"The robot is fitted with cameras to search an area and send back real-time footage and is powered by artificial intelligence to navigate on its own. 

"The cyber canine can also climb stairs, see in the dark, and run at about three-and-a-half miles an hour. It was designed for emergency situations that would otherwise be too dangerous for human officers."

The problem in poor neighborhoods is not racist robots. Schools are well-funded and public housing is plentiful.

No, the major problem is thugs, drugs, and murderers. Criminals are the oppressors. There was a reason AOC's family fled Queens for Westchester County when she was 5. And it wasn't because of racist robot dogs.


  1. AOC - Alexandria Occasionally Coherent......

  2. " 'Shout out to everyone who fought against community advocates who demanded these resources go to investments like school counseling instead," AOC wrote.
    Well, schools are closed and school counselors and teachers are beginning their 2nd year of a paid sabbatical, you idjit AOC

  3. Are the schools even open in New York City? Seems Sandy should be more concerned about that...

  4. "No, the major problem is thugs, drugs, and murderers". Also don't forget the rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.

  5. Who is more stupid? AOC or the people that voted for her? Talk about a race to the bottom...

  6. Unfortunately, a toy that won’t see much action, unless it’s in an action movie.

  7. the major problem is thugs, drugs, and murderers.

    Fact check: true but incomplete. Toss in GANGS who maintain the distribution network for the heroin the CIA brings in from Afghanistan where 90% of it is grown and made.

    Legalize drugs and privatize education and the ghettos are gone in under a generation.

    Harlem in Thomas Sowell's time was a fine neighborhood he talked about it a lot.

    As for the Woke culture like AOC they are the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks AOC! Keep up the good work.

    If anyone wants to understand, I mean really understand, the Woke culture here is a superb lecture on precisely what these lunatics believe

    The Great Awokening will decimate the democrat party. But it will take a few years be patient and get your kids out of public education.

    1. If the swamp wasn't making so much loot from the heroin, spraying a little Agent Orange on the poppy fields would crimp the supply.

  8. May the robo dog have a feature that allows it to pee on AOC's leg.

  9. May the robo dog have a feature that allows it to pee on AOC's leg.

    1. My dog peed on my bosses chair- with him in it- at a company picnic. Revenge is a dish best served wet and warm.

  10. AOC needs to get back to her porn account.

  11. The thugs drugs and murderers are there to make sure the neighborhood stays dumbocrap

  12. AOC often tries to justify her place in congress. She equally often resorts to fantasy, and almost as frequently -- though unbeknownst to her -- with comical results.

    1. Including her flashing the "White Supremacist" signs... guess she is racist to!

  13. Results of robo-dog:

    Good; fewer police triggered into split second shootings of armed or possibly armed people & fewer police shot when they hesitate vs. possible shooters.

    Bad; Swarms of conscienceless armed increasingly autonomous robots overseeing a population with no expectation of privacy or personal security versus a state with robo-operators supervising from a distance and with a distanced or non-existent empathy with the population supervised. Several dystopian novels have covered this with distressing prescience... Nothing could possibly go wro...

  14. Damned if you do, damned if you don't....these people are never happy

  15. CORRECTION: Ocasio-Cortez lived with her family in an apartment in the Bronx (not Queens) neighborhood of Parkchester until she was five, when the family moved to a house in suburban Yorktown Heights (in Westchester County).

    I understand that most could care less if “Sandy from The Bronx” fled Queens or The Bronx with her family when she was five for the comparative affluence and safety of Westchester County, but some New Yorkers do.

    Gotta admit, New York with Andrew “Baby Doc” Cuomo; Warren Wilhelm Jr., aka Bill De Blasio, aka Soy Latte De Commie; and Chuckles the Clown Schumer; not to mention the most recent carpet-bagger, the Hildabeast; New Yorkers can really pick’em...from the bottom of the barrel.
