Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Forgets How to Be Far-Left at John McCains’ Passing, Gets Slammed

Published

on

For once, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed some grace, civility, and political maturity, but her base, who no doubt relies on her sensationalism, slander, and juvenile bumper-sticker politics, was less than thrilled.

As many on the right and left did this week, AOC Tweeted out condolences at the passing of Senator John McCain, a polarizing figure in Washington on both sides of the aisle who undeniably served his country selfless and admirably for the majority of his adult lifetime.

Ocasio-Cortez may have simply thought this was what the left was doing since the majority of the mainstream media and Democratic politicians have been pretending to love McCain since he remained in constant conflict with President Trump in the last few years of his life.

“John McCain’s legacy represents an unparalleled example of human decency and American service,” she wrote on Saturday. “As an intern, I learned a lot about the power of humanity in government through his deep friendship with Sen. Kennedy. He meant so much, to so many. My prayers are with his family.”

For someone who’s spent the majority of her incredibly brief political career fumbling over her words and making outrageously false and uncivil statements, this was a pretty impressive display of diplomatic character. And again, you’d think her base would have been right on board since they all think McCain is a hero for being disliked by Trump.

Not so much:

The critique wasn’t limited to Twitter–the far-left blogosphere, who had largely swooned over her up to this point, shook their heads as well.

“McCain’s record does represent the views Ocasio-Cortez has defined herself, and the fight she’s leading, against – does that fight pause for R.I.P.s?” wrote columnist Whitney Campbell on Jezebel, before continuing to bash a man who has not even yet been buried (it’s Jezebel…classlessness is their bread and butter.)

The Socialist Call was grumpy with both Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders for being decent human beings and tweeting out kind words at McCain’s passing.

“When Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued condolences to the McCain family, it wasn’t terribly surprising. It’s one of those rituals that is expected of political leaders,” wrote Chicago Democratic Socialist Joe Allen.

“But that’s no excuse to say of America’s foremost warmonger, as AOC did, that he offers an ‘unparalleled example of human decency and American service.’ Or to extol him as an American hero, as Bernie did,” he huffed, going on to excoriate Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez for “shirking” their calling to criticize “American imperialism” at all times.

“As an organization we do need to remain critical when, under the pressure of capitalist politics, they willingly participate in poisonous national rituals that set back our work.”

Ouch! Looks like AOC has a fine line to walk between pleasing her radically anti-American base and appearing to be a decent, civilized human being. Because it certainly doesn’t appear that one could do both.

Maxine Waters Blames Trump’s ‘Dog Whistling’ For Death Of George Floyd

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters has once again put her hatred for President Donald Trump on full display, going full swing in an attack against him by blaming his death at the hands of a police officer as being directly related to his conduct. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a huge leap in logic that we’ve somewhat grown accustom to from Waters, who is desperate to pin something, anything, on Trump in order to help damage his chances of being reelected come November. How effective her strategy is remains to be seen. In a video that was obtained earlier this week by TMZ, Waters said, “My first thought was not again, not one more killing. And I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of, you know, these white supremacists.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Waters, a Democrat from California, continued: “And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself. In a way, he’s dog whistling, and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment. And I’m just so sorry about the loss of another life.” On Monday, 46-year-old George Floyd died while in police custody after officers responded to a call of someone using counterfeit money to make a purchase at a convenience store. Video taken at the scene of the incident shows an officer holding Floyd down on the ground by putting his knee on his neck as the man pleads with the officer to get off of him, informing him he can’t breathe. The four officers who were involved in the situation have been terminated from their positions on the police force. The mayor of Minneapolis has asked…

Resistance Rises Against Michigan Governor As Biden Running Mate Decision Draws Near

Very interesting…

Published

It seems that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is watching her chances of being chosen as Joe Biden’s vice president for the upcoming election are getting slimmer by the minute as more and more resistance to her governorship rises up after two very unflattering stories emerge about her and how she’s handled the coronavirus pandemic in her state. However, she’s not alone in scrutiny. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico is also being criticized for her handling of the crisis. The criticisms of both women have happened simultaneously, after reports emerging detailing how they violated their own lockdown rules for personal benefit. Here are the details from The Washington Examiner: In April, Lujan Grisham reportedly purchased jewelry from a close friend who runs a store in Albuquerque despite issuing an order just days before, asking that New Mexicans only leave home for food and medical supplies. “We are in really tough financial times as a state. It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting, and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” she said on April 3. Lujan Grisham’s office maintains that she did not violate the order because the transaction was “entirely contact-free,” as Lujan Grisham had a friend pick up the purchased piece of jewelry at the owner’s home. Republicans in the state noted that curbside pickup from stores wasn’t allowed until May 1, weeks after Lujan Grisham bought the jewelry. The New Mexico Republican Party posted up a tweet on Wednesday saying, “Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end…
