The Comic Genius of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

What would happen if a joke candidate like Vermin Supreme were actually to win an election? New York’s 14th congressional district may know the answer. Mark Dice presents the theory that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the ditzy communist she appears to be, but a clever comedienne whose joke got out of hand:

If only Vermin Supreme had been elected to Congress instead AOC, the whole country would be healthier, and not only regarding oral hygiene.

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants to Destroy America

Sandy Cortez (or as she now calls herself, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) does not have much to complain about. She grew up in the hoity-toity Westchester town of Yorktown Heights, attended extravagantly expensive Boston University (currently $56,864 per year just for tuition), and after graduation found suitable employment.

Then she was recruited for Congress by the radical Justice Democrats. Ever since, she has waged war against her district and America in general. For example, she was instrumental in driving out a proposed Amazon headquarters that would have brought “at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs” to New York according to Andrew Cuomo. Her Green New Deal, if fully implemented, would plunge the USA into total economic collapse.

What does AOC have against a country that has treated her so well? Despite her leftist rhetoric, maybe she doesn’t hate America. Maybe she is just angry because no one will take her seriously:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has done a step-by-step tutorial of her makeup routine for Vogue — while lamenting it’s “so hard” to be treated seriously on Capitol Hill. …

“I used to think that I would be taken less seriously, and as the youngest woman in Congress and as a woman of color, it’s so hard to be taken seriously,” the 30-year-old Democratic socialist told Vogue magazine in the video clip, just before showing her gold glittery eyeshadow palette.

If the gold glittery eyeshadow palette doesn’t get people to take her seriously, reducing America to a subsistence-level hellscape reminiscent of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge ought to do the trick.

AOC … said she was doing the video because she finds empowerment in her makeup bag.

OAC can find empowerment in a makeup bag; think how much she could find in the radically authoritarian Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal Song

There is at least one difference between the Green New Deal and the lunatic social engineering schemes the Khmer Rouge used to depopulate Cambodia. Pol Pot never thought to set his policies to music. Clap along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as moonbats sing the Green New Deal Song:

The purpose of the event was to remind Joe Biden that radicals like AOC expect to call the shots within the Democratic Party. They have run roughshod over Nancy Pelosi. Steamrolling befuddled Biden should be child’s play — perfectly suited to their childlike mentality.

Just because these people are absurd doesn’t mean they can’t destroy the country.

AOC: The Face of Cold Hate

Representing a sensible state, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has refused to get on board with the plan to destroy our system of government for the sake of creating single-party rule the moment Democrats have control of both the White House and the Senate. He won’t go for abolishing the filibuster, much less for turning the Supreme Court into a junta by packing it with leftists. He has also denounced socialized medicine and the insane “defund the police” policy embraced by the Democrats’ nihilist base.

From the Washington Examiner:

“Defund, my butt!” he said in response to the idea of stripping funding of police departments. He also criticized efforts to provide “Medicare for all”…

“Hell, we’re not able to take care of the Medicare for some that have earned it. I said, Christ, you want Medicare for all, you’d better take care of the some you already owe it to,” he said.

As for the welfare state,

“People just have the perception Democrats just want to give away everything. I don’t. I wasn’t raised that way. I’ll help you if you’re down and out. If you can’t take care of yourself, I’ll make sure we take care of you, but by golly, if you can contribute, get off your ass and start working.”

This has not endeared him to other Democrats:

Pure hate is scary on the face of someone as powerful as the Future of the Democratic Party. Imagine what AOC will do with her hatred if she becomes even more powerful.

The Independent reports, via Yahoo:

AOC concisely summed up her displeasure … by posting a single photo of her staring deadpan at the back of Sen Manchin’s head during a State of the Union address in 2019.

It only took clapping at something Trump said to earn that look. The look on her face now would probably ignite kindling.

Her vicious intolerance of dissent is shared by many a moonbat on Twitter.

The progressive Democratic congresswoman received over 200,000 likes on the platform in just an hour following its publication on Thursday evening.

Switch parties, Joe Manchin. And sleep with one eye open.

Already Dems Turn on Each Other

Without their hatred of Donald Trump to unite them, Democrats will inevitably fall at each other’s throats like a gang of thieves fighting over loot. Already a schism has opened between relative moderates and the spittle-spewing Marxist maniacs comprising the Squad, who unsurprisingly play the race card as they jockey for power.

Screams Rep Rashida Tlaib (D-MI):

“Me not being able to speak on behalf of many of my neighbors right now, many of which are Black neighbors, means me being silenced. I can’t be silent.”

You would have to be deaf to imagine Rashida Tlaib silent. However, if everyone doesn’t shut their mouths and bob their heads in compliance while she endlessly shrieks, Tlaib regards it as being silenced.

The more moderate Democrats honk about unity and healing under their dominance. But Squad members don’t feel close enough to victory to have any use for unity.

“We are not interested in unity that asks people to sacrifice their freedom and their rights any longer,” said Tlaib… “And if we truly want to unify our country, we have to really respect every single voice. We say that so willingly when we talk about Trump supporters, but we don’t say that willingly for my Black and brown neighbors and from LGBTQ neighbors or marginalized people.”

So much for trying to convince white suburbanites that they don’t want to start a race war.

Tlaib and other progressive leaders are making it clear there will be no honeymoon for Joe Biden.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer get pulled out on limbs by these rabid Harpies. What are the odds befuddled Biden can get them in line?

Squad leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plays the race card too:

“It’s not just like some moral question about how you confront racism in elections, but it is now an existential crisis for the Democratic Party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. The problem, she said, is Democrats don’t want to talk about race. “Anti-racism plays zero percent of a role in Democratic electoral strategy — zero, explicitly, implicitly,” she continued.

“Antiracism” in this context means codifying the race hate toward Caucasians that is a prime motivator for the radical base personified by AOC and Tlaib.

As for outdated notions like bipartisanship and civility,

“We’re always messaging around bipartisanship and how much we love working with Republicans all the time in a lot of these sensitive areas,” [AOC squeaked contemptuously]. “We need to have an unapologetic agenda, have an actual alternative and countermessaging that is distinct from the Republican Party instead of trying to play to notions of civility. … I just really hope that it gets through to a lot of people that this idea that we can win over white voters on a civility argument is like not a reliable strategy.”

Civility is not a serious option for the party that obsequiously embraced Black Lives Matter race rioters.

So long as the Senate holds, it can stall the Dems’ demented agenda for 2 years. Then their inability to keep the radicals who represent their base from projectile-vomiting pea soup at normal people like Linda Blair in The Exorcist will cost them the House. By then Biden will be in a dementia care facility and Harris will be in helplessly over her head.

Expect No Grace From Triumphant Liberals

In 2016 and for the 4 years that followed, we saw that liberals are not good losers. Now that the media proclaims Joe Biden has won, we see that they are not good winners either. Patriots should expect no grace.

The Bitter Half characteristically congratulated Biden by denouncing the 70 million Americans who voted against him:

She trashed Trump voters as she reminded Biden voters to find what unites Americans. “Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division.”

Insults from Michelle Obama we can weather. This sounds more serious:

Journalist Drew Holden shared a lengthy — and alarming — list of media outlets, fellow journalists, and members of the Democratic Party who are threatening retribution against Republicans supporting President Donald Trump and his allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election and more.

Holden concluded the lengthy list — which you can read in its entirety herewriting, “At the end of the day, I can’t imagine these folks will be shipping conservatives off to the gulags in a divided government, much as they would like to. But it fundamentally cuts against the spirit of America to suggest someone should be punished for their political views.”

As for the gulags, what if they can pour enough money into Georgia to take control of the Senate? Chuck Schumer is eager to tell you what will happen then.

Those who have endorsed variations on the theme of collecting a list of Trump supporters and subjecting them to a Torquemada-style Truth and Reconciliation Commission include former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, MSNBC propagandist Chris Hayes, the Nation, the Philadelphia Inquirer, ballyhooed Future of the Democratic Party Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Washington Post propagandist Jennifer Rubin.

Rubin, who has been passed off as a token conservative in the liberal media, is as usual particularly vicious and vindictive toward actual conservatives. In the video below, she confirms that those who supported Trump — the “survivors” as she calls them — must be hunted down and canceled. Her fellow moonbats must “burn down the Republican Party.”

No doubt Rubin has signed up with the hair-raising Trump Accountability Project, which promises to target anyone who worked on the Trump campaign, staffed his administration, or donated to his election.

Giving power to these people is like giving pyromaniacs gasoline and matches.

Cultural Revolution Uncovers Thought Criminals at Harvard

Now that the media has proclaimed them the victors, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez et al had better get busy compiling lists of thought criminals for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. There are thought criminals everywhere who must be rooted out and canceled — even at Harvard.

Via Campus Reform:

Joshua Conde, a Crimson editor and political science major, claimed that “Harvard does not care about its students of color” due to its hiring of professors Diana Schaub and David Kane.

The Crimson is Harvard’s campus newspaper. To “not care about” students of color is to fall out of compliance with politically correct ideology, regardless of whether your point of view benefits nonwhites.

Conde took issue with Schaub’s concern about “the erosion of both Bible-based faith and faith in Progress” in the African-American community, as well as her view that high abortion rates and low marriage rates can help to explain Baltimore’s falling population.

No no no! It is not that welfare and accompanying moral decay destroyed the black family. It is racism! Think as you are told!

Conde called upon Harvard to fire both Schaub and Kane, as well as professors who hold similar beliefs.

According to Conde, their views are “unacceptable.” Any view that campus leftists disagree with is unacceptable, just as in the original Cultural Revolution in communist China.

Top Democrats Ready to Impose Radical Agenda

The election was so close that nearly a week afterward, whether Biden won is still a matter of opinion. Democrats lost ground in the House; the relatively sane among them expect to lose more in 2022 if they don’t tone down the radicalism. Even Jim Clyburn says that if they don’t back off from socialism, they are “not going to win.”

If Biden did win, it was by the skin on his teeth. So at least they won’t try to ram the full hard left agenda down the country’s throat, since it could not be more obvious that they do not have a consensus. Then again, these people are so arrogant and drunk with power that maybe they will:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) insisted several times Friday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a “mandate” to carry out their party’s agenda, referring to Biden as “president-elect” despite the fact that no winner has been declared in the close race between him and President Donald Trump.

Not just a mandate; a “tremendous mandate”:

The only thing preventing them from capitalizing on their imaginary mandate to transform the USA into Venezuela overnight is control of the Senate.

Like Pelosi, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer meekly complies with kamikaze radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who may take his Senate seat in 2022 if he doesn’t dance to her tune.

Barks Schumer,

“Now we take Georgia, then we change the world!”

This is frightening:

It would change the world, all right. If America succumbs to socialism, authoritarianism, and economic collapse, the rest of the planet may follow us into a new Dark Age. Schumer would bring this about by packing the Supreme Court and the Senate, ensuring indefinite single-party rule. Literally insane policies like the Green New Deal and unprecedented levels of spending and taxation would become a reality.

Fortunately, Georgia is not likely to hand these maniacs the Senate. But we have certainly come to the very edge of a steep precipice.

Leftists Have Plans for Those Who Opposed Them

Leftists can smell victory, even if their vehicle Joe Biden just barely squeaks into office with the help of systemic election fraud. They look forward to punishing those who opposed their rise to power. As totalitarians have done in other countries, people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are taking names and making lists:

“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Friday.

Some people still react to these threats like Americans:

“Joseph is proud of you!” one user wrote, referring to notorious Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin.

Another person posted a photo of Mao Zedong with the caption: “Big shoes to fill but you’ll get there.”

What happens to the people on the list? Possibly inspired by the Spanish Inquisition and the book 1984, Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich (now a Berkeley professor) wants to subject them to a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”:

After this commission finds them guilty of thought crimes, what happens next? Let’s ask a representative of the entertainment industry, one of the left’s securest pillars of power.

The Blaze reports:

Actress and singer Janelle Monáe went on a rant where she lambasted the nearly 70 million Americans who voted for President Donald Trump in the election. Monáe said that every person who supported President Trump should “burn.”

Entertainers do tend to be wacky. Monáe, for example, wants to abolish the Electoral College for being “RACIST BULLS***” and has proclaimed herself to be “pansexual.”

Let’s ask someone more sober. How about a guy who used to anchor the flagship program on MSNBC? To quote Keith Olbermann,

“Trump … and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs, and Sean Hannitys, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Gullianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society…”

So, gulags then. At least they aren’t openly calling for executions yet. They still fear the public a little bit.

We can laugh at these people for now. But anyone crazy enough to try to impose economic collapse through the Green New Deal is crazy enough to kill people in large numbers for objecting to starvation. Readers are referred again to Stalin and Mao.

When the Media Covered Biden

When Joe Biden tried running for president in 1988, his campaign collapsed amid gales of laughter. Since then, he has not only succumbed to dementia but has allowed himself to become a vehicle for leftist radicals to such an extent that Bernie Sanders effectively cowrote his platform, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advises him on envirosocialism, 90-lb tyrant Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is slated to become his gun confiscation czar, and he will not even disavow altering our form of government by packing the Supreme Court.

Yet this time he is a serious threat to become elected. This is largely because the liberal media establishment is devoted to getting him into power even at the cost of what little remains of its credibility — in contrast to 1988:

“A Joe Biden wind-up doll with somebody else’s words coming out.” Eleanor Clift’s description of him is all the more apt today — and all the more alarming, given whose words those will be.

OAC: We Can Push Biden to Further Extremes

The Democrats have to pull off a balancing act. To middle of the road swing voters who don’t pay much attention to politics, Joe Biden has to be presented as a safe moderate. But the Democratic base must never doubt that he is only a Trojan horse for the radical left, as they have been driving home lately with references to the “Harris-Biden Administration.” On Tuesday, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drove that home some more with this statement:

“Overall, we can likely push Vice President Biden in a more progressive direction.”

Considering the moonbattery Biden has read off his teleprompter over the past few months, going so far as to blame the police and “white supremacists” for Black Lives Matter violence, AOC’s statement should make any moderate’s hair stand on end. But Democrats already know that most anyone who follows politics closely either is a leftist or opposes them.

DC Comics to Feature Leftists Like AOC, Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Back in its day, DC Comics used to promote “truth, justice, and the American way.” Having been subverted by leftist social engineers, it now promotes the opposite. The political hijacking of comics could not be more obvious than this:

“Not all heroes wear capes,” DC Comics announced on its website. “Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation. We’ll be presenting tales of the real-world heroes who take up Diana’s mantle and work in the fields of science, social justice activism, diplomacy and more!”

Just what kids love to read comics about.

The $16.99 “Wonderful Women of History” anthology will feature anti-Constitution Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, anticapitalist Senator Elizabeth Warren, avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, unhinged leftist Rashida Tlaib, and transsexual activist Malcolm Michaels Jr, who now goes by the name Marsha P. Johnson.

The point is not to entertain children, but to indoctrinate them.

Getting kids to read this stuff will not be easy. Like much of American popular culture, comics are dying of contrived social engineering.

From corners the liberal establishment hasn’t thought to seize control of, genuine American culture will reemerge. Kids will seek it out, because it will be vastly more interesting than hagiographies of leftist politicians.

Today’s Democrats Taking Senate Likely to Have Devastating Consequences

Every presidential election is hyped as being of momentous consequence. This time, it isn’t just hype. If Democrats take the White House on a radical platform after a year of promoting leftist riots and economically devastating, senselessly draconian lockdowns, America is in for dark times. The Wall Street Journal makes the case that the Senate elections are more momentous still:

A Democratic majority would elevate left-wing progressives like Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Sheldon Whitehouse to positions of power.

Warren and Sanders are alarmingly aggressive socialist demagogues. Sheldon Whitehouse literally wants to throw people in prison for challenging leftist global warming orthodoxy.

Republicans are defending eight vulnerable seats, Democrats only one. The narrow 53-47 Republican majority is liable to flip.

The filibuster has always exerted a moderating influence. Not for much longer. Democrats have announced they will do away with it.

Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer has thrown in his lot with the radical left to stave off a primary challenge from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Schumer…

…said he’s moved left with the times and thus can’t take anything “off the table” in the majority. …

Schumer said this includes addressing “income and wealth inequality, climate [change], racial justice, [and] health care” and “improving our democracy.”

If that agenda is imposed, America will no longer be wealthy and free. It will be Venezuela.

Addressing “income and wealth inequality” means weaponizing envy to inflict Marxism. Note that Democrats no longer talk about lifting up the poor, but of economic leveling. They want to impose a ceiling above the lowest common denominator, as in communist countries.

Addressing “climate” means inflicting the demented and authoritarian Green New Deal under the pretense that it would have a measurable effect on the weather. Radically reducing our standard of living would not be a side effect; it would be the main point.

Addressing “racial justice” means further exploiting the divide-and-conquer racial strategy that has major cities up in flames. Preferred minority groups will receive ever greater favoritism at the expense of the core population, ensuring racial discord.

Addressing “health care” means socialized medicine. Sure it’s “free” (unless you pay taxes), but you will have to wait months for substandard care.

“Improving our democracy” may be the most ominous agenda item of all. This entails ensuring permanent Democrat power, in part by dismantling the Constitution. Plans openly floated by Democrats including packing the Supreme Court with enough leftists to guarantee the outcome of every ruling; abolishing the Electoral College so that urban population centers always pick the President; making Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia into states, providing four extra Senate seats for Democrats; and facilitating voter fraud by expanding vote by mail and ballot harvesting.

Other consequences of Democrats taking the Senate are likely to include pandering to unions by abolishing right to work laws, secret union elections, and freelance employment.

The only restraint would be public opinion, but Democrats (unlike Republicans) would have a cheerleading press corps behind them.

As the absurd coverage of the Black Lives Matter riots has demonstrated, there is no restraint on the left-wing activism of the liberal media establishment. Big Journalism has already cashed in its credibility; it will go to any length to push the country as far as it possibly can to the left.

Within a few months, the Black Lives Matter mob could be in effect running the federal government. The near future may present a choice between the sort of tyranny normally seen only in Third World countries on one hand, civil war on the other.

The Gist of the Democratic National Convention

Not many have been watching the virtual Democratic National Convention, not only because it has been a boring, amateurish production, but because you can’t learn much from the Potemkin Village version of the Democratic Party that is presented in the evening as the main attraction. Mark Dice has summed up what you probably didn’t bother to watch yesterday.

To learn what the Dems are really up to, watch the side attractions, like the Youth Council of the Democratic National Committee meeting where convention panelist Ashley McCray openly stated that the party’s objective is “the destruction of colonization, white supremacy, and capitalism.”

To translate, “colonization” = “Western Civilization”; “white supremacy” = “color-blind equality before the law”; and “capitalism” = “the economic freedom that allows a high standard of living.”

Ms McCray is much more in step with the party than the Trojan horse “transition” candidate Joe Biden, as the popularity within the party of socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders attests.
