No, AOC, they don’t dislike you because you’re a woman — it’s because you’re a socialist

Why did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez run for Congress in opposition to a liberal Democrat, Joseph Crowley? Well, as she informed CNN’s Dana Bash in an hour-long interview (!) final evening on CNN, AOC lives in an imaginary world the place individuals have to decide on between consuming and filling their prescriptions (Has she been to the Bronx? The common woman weighs 191 kilos there.).

Never thoughts that for the final half-century poor individuals have gotten their grub on the home (meals stamps) and their meds taken care of (Medicaid). She believes her presence in Congress was the essential difference-maker in these nonexistent individuals’s lives. Hence her nuking of Crowley, who … would have voted the identical approach she has voted on every thing.

Now AOC apparently has her eye on one other fellow Democrat who votes precisely the identical approach she would on every thing: Chuck Schumer. He’s up for reelection subsequent 12 months. Would she run in opposition to him within the Democratic major? Bash requested. AOC laughed heartily, threw out heaps of meaningless phrases (“I do not look at things and I do not set my course positionally . . . I make decisions based on what I think our people need or what our community needs . . . I really do not attempt to make these kinds of decisions out of a sense of personal ambition”) earlier than wrapping up with, “So yeah, I don’t know, it’s no comment on it.”

Bash had beforehand famous that AOC Is “a target of scorn and criticism, even within her own party.” Well, if you don’t need that, possibly don’t threaten to knock out your individual get together’s lead senator?

AOC should be the one member of Congress whom CNN considers worthy of a complete hour in prime time. Don’t maintain your breath ready for an hour in prime time with Steny Hoyer. But then once more, she’s the one one (apparently) that has impressed a sub-sub-sub style of TikTok teenagers lipsynching to one in all her speeches whereas placing on lipstick.

Bash and AOC spent fairly a little bit of time on AOC’s make-up routine, which was refreshing, in a approach; not for her, the dishevelled Hillary Clinton pantsuits. She’s a woman and he or she doesn’t conceal it. (For the interview she wore a black sheath gown that confirmed off her legs, though to be truthful to Hillary Clinton, if Madame Cankles did that it could in all probability trigger sudden-onset mass blindness.)

As at all times with CNN programming, there was a lot of debate of what’s on Fox News, and Bash stated, “Let’s just talk turkey — how much do you think is that you are an attractive young woman?” Wait, that’s speaking turkey? I assumed AOC being an admitted socialist was speaking turkey. Are her beliefs not truthful sport?

But, no, each Bash and AOC pretended Fox has a drawback with fairly girls. (Have they checked out Fox? Pretty girls appear to do okay there.) AOC at first tried to sound like a Womxn’s Studies seminar chief (“I think that it’s really fascinating…it reveals a lot about the subconscious of the folks that are crafting these narratives…about women or about people of color”) however then dropped all of the wouldn’t-this-be-an-interesting-thesis speak and mainly accused Fox of attempting to get her killed. She stated that in the course of the January 6 riot, when she was satisfied she was going to be raped and murdered, she famous “how direct the through line is between right-wing targeting on TV and how much that is a driver of very real, serious threats.” 

Apparently every thing Fox says about her is simply a matter of them not understanding all of the far-left stuff she says. “I think the thing that is more impactful is not necessarily about being hated but about being misunderstood,” she stated, including that Fox “just churns out intentional misperception to generate that hate.” And what are these misperceptions? “Just thinking that I’m rash, unintelligent, and that I intend to do harm.”

Well, AOC is a fan of the world’s worst extant concept, socialism, and a proponent of crackpot Modern Monetary Theory, which primarily says that if the federal government needs to fund stuff it ought to simply print extra money, with out restrict. Even fellow far-left economics main Paul Krugman has stated this principle “seems just obviously indefensible,” notes that it could “lead to hyperinflation” (which gave us Nazism) and stated its “claims that fundamental principles of logic lead to a worldview that only fools would fail to understand has a sort of eerie resemblance to John Galt’s speech in ‘Atlas Shrugged.’” 

If you know Paul Krugman, that’s mainly the sickest burn he might probably lob in AOC’s common route. It’s the Nobel laureate’s model of the boss from “The Devil Wears Prada” accusing you of sporting a sweater from the Gap.

One admission, although, I actually loved. “I think that femininity has a tremendous amount of power and influence,” Ocasio-Cortez famous. “I think that there is as much power in femininity as there is in masculinity.”

No kidding. Sorry about your dream of showing on the duvet of Vogue, Steny Hoyer. I thank the Congresswoman for admitting that she leverages femininity to the max. Now can we cease pretending younger girls are helpless victims of The Patriarchy and are properly conscious of play the sport to their very own benefit?
