Conservatives, moderates, and freedom-loving independents: It’s time to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seriously.
As most of you know, a new sheriff and his minions come into town next week. And they’re already talking about clamping down on freedom of expression.
While Trump was president, the Democrats favored an oppositional press. That changes now that they’re taking power:
Every dictatorial regime since time immemorial has arbitrarily declared the arguments of the opposition “lies”, and then promptly silenced them.
For what it’s worth, I don’t necessarily believe that this is what Joe Biden personally wants to do. But Biden is elderly, enfeebled, and he will struggle to keep the radicals of his party in check.
So far, he seems intent on pandering to the Democratic Party’s far-left base.
Which brings us to AOC
What about AOC? If you sift through the videos on her Twitter and Instagram feeds, you’ll find that she does indeed talk about “reining in” the media, as well as some kind of “truth and reconciliation” process after the Dems take power.
We don’t yet know what she means by that. The Vietnamese communists used the term “truth and reconciliation” after they took over South Vietnam in 1975. Purges, reeducation camps, and worse followed.
Don’t underestimate Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez
There has been a tendency among conservatives until now to treat AOC as a kind of joke. Superficially, she often gives off the appearance of being a ditzy college coed who has imbibed some leftwing talking points without fully understanding them.
Oh, she doesn’t really know what she’s saying! has been the reaction of many conservatives.
I would suggest to you that at least some of AOC’s superficial ditziness is an act. Let’s remember: As recently as 2017, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a twenty-something waitress with few prospects for much of anything. In a few short years, she has not only been elected (twice!) to the House of Representatives. She has also captivated the press, and browbeaten senior members of her party—including the President-elect of the United States–into taking her radical proposals and pronouncements seriously. And she’s still barely in her thirties.
Time and again, AOC has managed to outmaneuver her opponents, and convinced the press to lionize her, and portray all that she says and does in a positive light. When she hints at imposing her speech codes and government confiscation plans on the rest of us, she knows exactly what she’s saying, and exactly what she plans to do.
Why men, in particular, underestimate AOC
Another complication is that many men find AOC attractive on some level. She is, her politics aside, probably the hottest-looking woman in government at present. (Though Kristi Noem, the Republican governor of South Dakota, would give AOC a run for her money in that department.)
None of us is strictly a political animal. Liberal female voters in the 1990s gave Bill Clinton wide, wide latitude because he was so charming. In 1992 (I’m old enough to remember) there was no shortage of reports about sexual harassment and sexual misconduct allegations against Bill Clinton. Everybody knew about them. But many progressive female voters secretly wouldn’t have minded being sexual propositioned by Clinton themselves. And so they gave him a “pass”.
Men are no different. In fact, men are much, much worse. While handsome male serial killers like Scott Peterson attract their share of female groupies, convicted murderess Jodi Arias was receiving marriage proposals from lusty men on a weekly basis in 2016.
Women are influenced by their passions, true. But most men between the ages of puberty and death are virtually led around by their schlongs, as if each one were a guided, woman-seeking missile.
If men will send letters proposing marriage to convicted [boyfriend killer!] Jodi Arias, it really isn’t so hard to believe that men will let their dorkers do the thinking when appraising AOC. After all, AOC probably hasn’t killed anyone.
Most liberal males trip all over themselves while playing the white knight in defense of AOC. Because…who knows? That obese, neck-bearded Millennial leftwing dude on Twitter might just have a chance of getting lucky if AOC happens to see his series of tweets in defense of her.
Yeah, like that’s going to happen. But hope springs eternal among the obese, neck-bearded Millennial leftwing crowd.
But conservative men are conflicted, too. It’s easy to condemn Nancy Pelosi or Rashida Tlaib. Few men are sexually conflicted about either of them. But what if AOC’s mind could be changed? If you’re a conservative male, perhaps you harbor a secret fantasy about meeting AOC, and finding that opposites really do attract. Wouldn’t it be great to…
Enough. AOC is not some ditzy college chick who just happened to wake up one morning as one of the most influential people in Congress. Nor is she your fantasy girlfriend. AOC is a crafty, dedicated leftwing revolutionary, who already displays dictatorial tendencies.
Men: Do not underestimate AOC just because a part of you thinks about sleeping with her. (And remember: that isn’t going to happen, anyway.)
With Joe Biden and the most left-leaning Democratic Congress in history now poised to take power, conservatives, moderates, and freedom-loving independents everywhere need to start taking AOC seriously.
President-elect Joe Biden, no less, listens to what AOC has to say. So should you…very carefully, and without any blinders imposed by her superficially disarming manner, and comely appearance.
