AOC Is Frying Conservatives' Brains!

From Yahoo News:


"Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is the new speaker of the House, but the name of the San Francisco liberal was rarely uttered at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering held south of Washington, D.C. Demonized for much of the 2018 political season in Republican ads and presidential tweets, she had been, it seemed, entirely forgotten.


Former archrival Hillary Clinton came in for a couple of predictable jabs, as when Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, the conservative activist group, promised 'more accountability' from the former secretary of state. But such calls weren’t followed up by the 'lock-her-up' chants of yore.


Instead, by far the greatest animosity — and anxiety — was reserved for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the 29-year-old House newcomer who has single-handedly pushed the agenda of the Democratic Party to the left. As much as Republicans oppose her agenda — the 'Green New Deal,' a 70 percent tax rate on the wealthy — they thrill at the prospect of using her to broadly paint the Democrats challenging President Trump in 2020 as like-minded socialists.

'The moment America becomes a socialist country is the moment America ceases to be America,' Vice President Mike Pence said on the convention’s second day.


Pence did not mention Ocasio-Cortez by name, but he didn’t have to: She was everywhere at CPAC, so much so that the entirety of the five-day affair could have been dedicated to her. The event officially opened on Thursday with a panel title 'Marketing Marxism: There’s Nothing New About the Green New Deal.' But there was little serious debate of the proposal, which was recently introduced by Ocasio-Cortez, and which would transition the nation to a carbon-free economy under government control.

Mark Meadows, R-N.C., referencing a comment by Ocasio-Cortez about bovine flatulence, which does in fact contribute to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, thus exacerbating the warming of the planet. The cow comment proved popular at CPAC.

Speaking shortly thereafter, former White House official Sebastian Gorka warned that progressives are seeking to “take away your hamburgers,” and that this represented Stalinism in its purest form.


'You just try to have AOC show up at my house and try to take my cows away,' said Jerry Falwell Jr., using the acronym by which Ocasio-Cortez is almost universally known. This came right after Falwell said that his sons had grown up with guns in their hands.


'I think it’s good, though, that that’s the direction the Democrats are going,' Falwell added. 'That’s gonna make it pretty easy in 2020,' he added.

Ocasio-Cortez tended bar in New York before turning to politics.


The number of allusions to Ocasio-Cortez at CPAC suggests that conservatives believe that she has become the right’s new bugbear. Her office did not respond to multiple Yahoo News requests for comment. But on Thursday afternoon, she tweeted in response to a report that an image of her dancing outside her Washington office — ominously edited — appeared during a video montage by the National Rifle Association.




'The GOP is scared of dancing women, because they fear the liberation of all identities taught to feel shame,' Ocasio-Cortez wrote in response..."

The CPAC is always very entertaining...the largest collection of conservative clowns assembled in one place every year.  And AOC has got them foamin' at the mouth.  And what do the cacklers invariably do when faced with a strong, bright, outspoken liberal woman?  They try to smear her...

Don’t be fooled:



AOC is quickly becoming a conservative punching bag that will easily propel Trump to victory in 2020, because of her radically stupid ideas.  



As as we speak, Governor Cuomo is on his knees begging Bezos to rethink LIC after AOC helped destroy that incredibly important deal.  



The Dems better quickly abandon her or they will have zero chance of winning any of the sun or rust belt states.  



of course, the GOP loves having her around to make the Democratic party look even stupider than they already are.

AOC has just finished paving a highway to The Orange Idol's tax returns.  She helped draft the first comprehensive bill to deal with climate change.  She is rattling the cages of the GOP leadership, and the more venom they spew at her the more popular she gets.

That comprensive climate change bill she helped draft is so ridiculously stupid that she probably cost any candidate who signs on any chance of winning Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, Florida, etc.  



And somehow Dems like this idiot.

If AOC, as the cacklers contend, is the new boss of the Democratic Party, she sure is a refreshing departure from the fat, cigar-smoking, drug-addled, hate-ranting blowhard that ran the GOP for years until a liberal woman, Sandra Fluke, took him down.  Yeah, I'm talking about the leader of the DittoHeads For Donald...Rush Limbaugh.  He made the mistake of trying to smear Fluke and look what happened to him.  Of the 112 slated speakers at this year's CPAC, Rush ain't among 'em.

Your "Party of No" is fast reaching dinosaur status as its leadership continues to try to ignore, stall and obstruct in dealing with issues that the majority of voters want action on...like climate change, gun control, higher taxes on the wealthy and corporations, a real solution to the healthcare crisis, a path to citizenship for the Dreamers, the restoration of voting rights, and on and on...

AOC sure looks like the new boss.  




It aint because she’s smart or a good politician, but because she’s good at social media.  



That’s just sad if you ask me.  



If the Dems keep running left even more in the next 20 months, Trump (or any other Republican) is gonna win in a landslide.  



Biden is your only hope.

Yes Trump speaks at a fourth grade level but are you really suggesting AOC speaks at a college level?  It was funny watching her try to school people on marginal tax rates, let’s see her take up effective tax rates.  She speaks passionately but she does not speak like an adult, she sounds just like one of those Sunrise Movement children talking over Feinstein.


To me she is the gift that keeps on giving, she says the things that I get accused of demagoguery when I suggest that is their goal through incremantal means.

Good of luck with that in 2020.  



I will guarantee you are gonna be sorely disappointed.
