As a kid I was the epitome of gullibility, not no more. There are two things I don’t understand, the coverage of ‘AOC’ and the perception of her. The FOX News site today had the gazillionth article on her. Why? Why have you given this self avowed socialist millions of dollars in free press? She hasn’t served three years, why have you made her into the powerhouse she is? You haven’t done two articles on Marjorie Taylor Greene (picture below). She’s new to the House. She thinks exactly like Trump. Why haven’t you given her millions of dollars of free publicity?
The perception of AOC from the Republican base is another puzzler. For the most part they hate her. Generally they don’t make a personality the enemy. Some did with Hillary, and some did with Obama, but not like Democrats do. And especially like they did with Trump. The hatred the base feels towards AOC approaches the hatred Democrats feel towards Trump. They call her a socialist, she’s never claimed to be anything else. They call her “stupid”. She defeated an incumbent from her own party to become a Representative, is that something a stupid person accomplishes? She’s quickly become one of the most influential people in Washington, is that the sign of a retard?
And then you have Marjorie Taylor Greene The mirror image of the most popular Republican President in history, and virtually ignored by the conservative media.
Conservative media made AOC. She’d be nothing without their hundreds of articles a day on her. She hasn’t even served 2 years yet. But I guess its a good distraction to make her the boogeyman, instead of the Republican Senate and the stimulus bill that put every country but America First.
This picture and accompanying article from Revolver News continues to make AOC responsible for everything wrong in Washington. She just got there! Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been their a long time. They’re the ones that subvert the Republican agenda from within, how come you never make fun of them?
AOC made the Republican Senate pass the ‘stimulus’ bill that put every country but America first? AOC made the president sign it?
For somebody who hasn’t served 1 term, AOC has one hell of a lot of influence (you know you’ve arrived when you’re known by your initials: RBG, JFK, AOC). All that power was given to her by the conservative media. I don’t know what’s more laughable, the people writing the articles about her, or the comments section. One of the common themes is how “stupid” she is. Really? She took out an 18 year incumbent of her own party, beat the Republican and is leading the 435 member House as a freshman. That’s stupid? I’d say its more like you are.
Another common complaint about her is that “she’s a socialist!” Yeah, she never claimed any different. Once again the stupid ball is in your court. What the hell did you think she was? Here’s another one, stupid. You have over a dozen Republicans who run as a Republican, but vote as a Democrat. They’re the liars. They’re the ones operating under false pretenses. I’m sorry you’re dumb as a stump, but that’s not her fault. Why do you allow Benedict Arnolds in your party? How stupid is that? Why do you allow that? Once again the stupid ball is in your court.
So in 4 years she will be running for President. She’s already a household name, thanks to the conservative media. She’s eloquent, fiery and attractive. You have to figure after Hillary and Joe Biden she’s going to look pretty good to Dem voters. And the conservative media (swear to God) will go around looking under rocks to try and find out who made her such a powerful force.
The more I think about it the more I’m sure how ridiculous this is. (in a hillbilly voice:) “She’s a socialist!” What was your first clue? When she told you she was? She’s not hiding anything, she’s honest if nothing else. Susan Collins is your liar. Lisa Murkowski is your liar. Mitt Romney is your liar. Rob Portman is your liar. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not. You’re the frickin’ idiot that can’t distinguish between who’s a liar and who ain’t. Its like damn, how stupid are you?
Conservative media’s favorite villain is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Today’s article on FOXNews.com was about a “spat” between her and Republican Senator Ted Cruz. The subject isn’t really important, they carry her every utterance. Not bad for a freshman from New York who will hit her 14th month in office on Wednesday. If she doesn’t run for President in 2024 I will be greatly surprised. You have to figure the Democrats are going to get their head handed to them this fall.
Setting the stage for another Democratic free-for-all in ’24. She’s the one with the juice. Its like Tom Steyer, he’s juice-less. 2 billionaires and only one gets press. When Mike Bloomberg has more charisma than you do, its time to find another hobby. The Bronx Bomber becomes legal October 13, 2024. I think I’ll see if I can put up a string of comments about her from online:
“It was utterly irresponsible to put AOC in Congress.”
“She can claim all the accomplishments she wants to but let’s not forget one of the main reasons of her fame were completely stupid answers she gave during interviews.”
“AOC is literally ignorant.” (how would you be ‘figuratively’ ignorant?)
“Can Jello Shots even spell science? I thought she had a degree in economics.”
“It’s hard to take AOC seriously. Since she is an evolutionist, I wonder what rock she evolved from.”
Facebook had an article from Breitbart about AOC this morning. I don’t even remember what it was about. I do remember the reaction I got to a comment I made. I simply made the comment that she had a lot of gumption and imagine what it would be like if Republicans had half the spunk she did?
Well! That certainly didn’t sit well with the brain trust on Facebook. Show them a picture of AOC and its like ringing Pavlov’s bell, they begin salivating and attacking immediately! They began to tell me that I had called her smart and that in fact she was dumb! They told me that I had said she was good for America and that she was bad for America!
They also told me that I had called her a capitalist when in fact she was a socialist! I came away from the experience convinced that the average Facebook visitor reads at the level of a 3rd grader. They don’t read for comprehension, its more of an interpretive reading thing they have going on.
They interpret what you say in a wildly different manner then what you actually said. I had simply said she had courage, and wouldn’t it be remarkable if the Republicans had some of that? That’s all. It was just amazing the reaction I got. People that stupid are driving on our highways? Operating dangerous equipment? Voting? Living next-door? That’s scary!
