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.

New Video Posted By President Trump Proves He’s Denounced White Supremacy Over And Over Again

Published

on

President Trump released a video Tuesday that completely annihilates the left-wing narrative promoted in the mainstream media that he is a racist who supports and promotes white supremacy. Many folks in the MSM have made the accusation that the president has not condemned white supremacy, but this video showcases all of the times he’s done just that. Here’s more on the video from the Daily Wire: “The Trump campaign rolled out a nearly 5-minute-long video of the president, featuring video clips from as recently as this month, to his 2016 presidential campaign, and dating all the way back to an interview Trump gave to Matt Lauer in the early 2000s, where he denounced White supremacy and ‘disavowed’ White supremacist groups,” Fox News reported. “The video comes after Biden and Harris have criticized Trump, casting him as a racist and claiming he has not denounced White supremacy, and also comes as part of the Trump campaign’s final pitch to win over Black voters ahead of Election Day.” The video actually details 38 examples of when Trump denounced white supremacy. Here’s just a few of the ones covered in the clip.   From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy, okay?” From recent NBC News townhall: “Are you listening? I denounce white supremacy. What’s your next question?” From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy.” From recent NBC News townhall: “You start off with white supremacy, I denounce it.” https://youtu.be/Bd0cMmBvqWc Folks, the mainstream media is never going to ditch their anti-Trump racist narrative, regardless of how false it actually is. They believe this is one of their strongest strategies against the president and have worked hard, investing much time and energy, into covering this narrative and brainwashing their viewing audience with it. But it’s not true. Clearly, the president is…

Tony Bobulinski Makes Explosive Claims On Tucker Carlson’s Show, Media Skips Story

Published

on

Critics are having a hard time wrapping their minds around the fact that the mainstream media is choosing to ignore the Tucker Carlson interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, who stated that the Biden family casually shrugged off any worries that Joe Biden’s ties to all of his son’s business deals might have a negative impact on future presidential campaigns. This, of course, raises questions as to whether or not the MSM is worthy of public trust. Given the kind of anti-Trump coverage we’ve seen over the last few years, and the total destruction of journalistic integrity and ethics, the answer to that question should easily be “no.” via Fox News: Bobulinski’s comments to Carlson were completely ignored by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post as of 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, exactly 12 hours after the start of the damning interview. “It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media. Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. “Even if this story is not front and center on the news agenda, it does need to be approached somewhere along the way. Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.” “What little coverage has surfaced has basically just been running without challenge the boilerplate denials and indignation from the Biden camp. The manner in which this story has been covered…
