Some people just can’t handle the truth.
AOC splashed onto the scene, rocketed into fame and was practically treated like royalty. She’s been on the covers of magazines, is being featured in a Netflix movie, has endless attention from an adoring press…
Until suddenly — it all went wrong somehow.
A poll released by Gallup on Friday “found that the increase in Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘unfavorable’ rating in recent months has more than doubled her increase in ‘favorable ratings,'” The Daily Wire reported. “Gallup further noted that Ocasio-Cortez’s favorable rating was ‘underwater’ among the majority of groups and was only viewed as favorable among 56% of Democrats.”
A seperate poll released this week found that only 12% of New Yorkers call Ocasio-Cortez a “hero” after she worked to sabotage the Amazon deal — which would have brought tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars worth of economic activity to New York — while “38 percent label her a villain.”
Could she have made a mistake? Could she have misjudged public opinion on the Amazon deal? Was telling America “…I’m the boss, how ’bout that?” dripping with sanctimony and arrogance? Could her Green New Deal or her performance in Congress have been found wanting? Did she come off as ignorant in her questioning of the Wells Fargo CEO?
Claiming the world will end in 12 years? Refusing to back an amendment that would notify ICE if an Illegal Immigrant attempted to purchase a firearm???
Threatening to primary other Democrats who didn’t goose-step to the party line?
Nope. Obviously, the REAL problem is NONE of those things, just ask her:
When “centrists” care more about the GOP base than the Dem base, bigotry gets legitimized.
This is *the* playbook. GOP does it w/ virtually every Dem figure who isn’t a white male: otherize, demonize + splinter.
It’s vital that we adapt & dismantle this approach, not cow to it. https://t.co/dKlzflqZVn

This is different than being moderate on policy. I may disagree w/ approach (keeping the ACA as-is w/small tweaks, etc), but at least that’s a policy convo.
But to make decisions based on the political efficacy of a bigoted argument gives that bigotry power, & that’s a problem.

Ah, yes. It always comes back to race, doesn’t it?
No—this is *your* playbook. You constantly & falsely claim the only grounds on which anyone in the GOP criticizes you is bigotry. In reality, you ignore their calls for policy convo/debate to avoid proving what we know: you’re not prepared to be publicly challenged on anything. https://t.co/crzx5ujoVS

True enough. Many of us think she’s why influence and ignorance are a dangerous combination. Also, if she’s so gung-ho on stopping bigotry, why did she help dilute the formal criticism of Ilhan Omar’s antisemitism into some mealy-mouthed and generic nobody-should-be-mean resolution?
Or the drop in approval numbers is a reflection that 15,000 votes in one district's primary doesn't make you, "the boss" of the rest of the country. https://t.co/2kbhhoi8dC

If she had any sense she’d order herself a double-shot of humility, and down it while reading the Constitution and figuring out what she was sent there to do.
But of course, someone like her, with a Zealot’s certainty and a radicalized thirst for revolution wouldn’t be interested in anything so boring and mature as that.
Another round of hubris sounds more likely.
A new player has now taken the field, one that came ‘out of nowhere’. She cut her teeth working for Bernie 2016, and has picked up a trick or two about ‘community activism’.
Alexandria Occasio-Cortez (‘AOC)’ has a take-no-prisoners arrogance, a deep loathing for the history and institutions of America, the unflinching zealotry of a convert to a cause, and a rigid ignorance impervious to all logic.
Add to that mix her youth, her social media savvy, and the unswerving obedience of the Media(D)’s Partisan Press, and you have a wannabe American revolutionary with lofty goals every bit as transformative as Lenin, Castro, Che Guevera or Mao. And naturally, she’ll conveniently forget any of her objections to ‘dark money’ so long as it applies to any of her wealthy benefactors.
She’s the perfect delivery system for the Soros agenda… as depicted by Doug Giles’ latest piece in his MAGA series, Soros & His Dummy.
