Vox Nominates Ocasio-Cortez for President, She Declines

Published

on

Generally, Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accepted all of the media fawning that’s come her way since she won a surprise upset in a primary and subsequently coasted through the general.

But when left-wing Vox’s Matt Yglesias tried to puff her as a 2020 presidential candidate, she hilariously shut him down on Twitter.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should run for president and dare the Supreme Court to stop her, argues ,” said Vox on Twitter.

AOC is apparently too tired for that, having just switched careers from bartender to politician.

“How about… no. Sometimes political media is too fixated on personalities instead of policies. The whole country JUST went through an exhausting midterm election. We need a break. Can we instead talk about healthcare, a living wage, legalizing cannabis, GND, & other issues?” she said in response.

That’s sort of embarrassing for Yglesias, who fawned over her in his piece.

“Not everyone shares her brand of politics, of course, but her constituency has exploded beyond the initial set of ideologues who powered the challenge to Crowley because of her incredible wit, charisma, social media savvy, and basic political smarts,” he said.

Wit? It’s difficult to see where Yglesias came up with that. He is right about one thing, though: her political “smarts” certainly are “basic.”

“In a year when moderate incumbents generally didn’t lose primary challenges from the left and in which Our Revolution endorsees failed to flip a single GOP-held House seat, AOC constantly dominates the conversation — living rent-free in the heads of conservatives, racking up magazine profiles and Twitter followers, engaging supporters on Instagram in a heretofore unprecedented way, and pulling back the curtain on some of the seamier aspects of ‘business as usual’ in the US Congress,” he continued.

This makes total senses – magazine profiles, Twitter followers and Instagram usage are definitely what ordinary Americans are looking for in a presidential candidate. Never mind that AOC can barely elucidate any coherent policy point without tripping over herself.

If the piece weren’t funny enough, AOC’s rejection of it made it that much sweeter. I suspect that she will be receiving an angry text – or perhaps an Instagram direct message – from Yglesias saying something along the lines of “wtf? lol.”

HYPOCRISY: Liberal COVID-19 Alarmists Who Denounced Lockdown Protests are Silent about National Riots

They have shown how coronavirus panic was manufactured.

Published

on

Far-left hypocrites regularly admonished anti-lockdown protesters for peacefully demonstrating for their livelihoods as spreading COVID-19, only to cheer on violent race riots throughout the country days later and ignore any negative public health implications.

The Resurgence writer Drew Holden created a compilation of the greatest hits of lying liberals engaging in blatant double-standards regarding the coronavirus:

He started by calling out former Clinton operative and CNN hack Joe Lockhart for his despicable comments:

Holden moved onto obsessive Never Trumpers, Tony Posnanski and Kurt Eichenwald for completely changing their tune:

He moved on to profiling some of the most disgraced public officials across the country, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer:

He profiled New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who has been one of most belligerent leaders throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and Washington Post neoconservative Jennifer Rubin for their partisan flip-flopping.

Holden hammered transgender cretin Charlotte Clymer and Julia Ioffe, who writes for GQ Magazine now that nobody reads it:

CNN Political Analyst April Ryan and Russia-gate truther Scott Dworkin were exposed as well:

The co-hosts of Pod Save America, an anti-Trump podcast, made fools of themselves too:

Holden closed his thread by exposing CNN host Soledad O’Brien for her colossal levels of hypocrisy:

The anti-quarantine protests have been vilified constantly despite the fact that they happened throughout the nation without any violence, and have served as golden examples of effective peaceful protest.

Big League Politics reported on protests like “Operation Gridlock” that have emerged across the country:

On Monday, individuals convened in the downtown area for an “Operation Gridlock” protest, based off of last week’s wildly successful demonstration in Michigan against anti-Trump Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose lockdown policies are among the most strict in the nation.

California Governor Gavin Newsom might be giving Whitmer some competition, as his state bureaucrats have arbitrarily banned a certain type of rally. It is unknown whether they plan to lock up protesters if they disobey the new edict.

“In the interest of public safety and the health of all Californians during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately the California Highway Patrol will deny any permit requests for events or activities at all state facilities, to include the State Capitol, until public health officials have determined it is safe to gather again,” the CHP said.

Because protesters did not comply with arbitrary social distancing mandates and protested as they wished, California is punishing them as a consequence.

The protest was put on by the Freedom Angels, a group that organizes to prevent mandatory vaccinations. They are urging people to stand up to prevent their rights from being taken away during these troubling times.

“This is the time for people to take notice and really evaluate the freedoms they’re giving up, all in the name of perceived safety,” said Freedom Angels co-founder Heidi Munoz Gleisner in a Facebook video.

“People need to get back to work, get back to life, get back into contact with their loved ones who they’re isolated from, they need to be able to have a paycheck,” group co-founder Tara Thornton said to The Sacramento Bee, which interviewed her during the demonstration. “This is the grounds they will enslave us upon.”

The leftists have proven with their brazen hypocrisy that destroyed the economy and shut down society with ginned up coronavirus hysteria just to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances. These enemies of civilization need to be brought to justice for the damage they have caused.
