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.

More Fetal Remains Found In South Bend Abortion Doctor’s Vehicle Brings Total To 2,411

Published

on

Local law enforcement discovered a total of 165 more aborted baby corpses in the trunk of a car in Illinois that was owned by a late abortion doctor, bringing the total count of remains discovered to be in possession of the man to 2,411. Dr. Ulrich Klopfer was apparently a hoarder while he was alive. His family uncovered all of the fetal remains on his property after he died back in September in cardboard boxes that were stored in the garage. Via The Washington Examiner: The remains are believed to be from abortions conducted in 2002, said Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill. The initial remains, 2,246 of them, were transported to Indiana from Illinois on Oct. 2. “This is uncharted territory for all of us,” Hill said in a statement. “We are following the same protocol for these additional 165 fetal remains that we have already established. We remain committed to ensuring that all these unborn children receive a respectful final disposition here in Indiana.” The remains found this week were in the car of a 1990s Mercedes Benz, which was stored on the lot for more than six years. Indiana authorities have taken over the investigation because Klopfer performed abortions for decades in the state and had clinics in South Bend, Gary, and Fort Wayne. Police haven’t found evidence that Klopfer performed abortions on his property or that he performed illegal abortions, but he lost his medical license a few years before he died for poor record keeping, flouting Indiana laws about waiting periods, and failing to report instances where girls sought abortions after being raped. He died Sept. 3 at age 79. Anti-abortion groups have taken this news as an opportunity to demonstrate that abortion needs more restrictions and regulations placed upon the practice, while others want to…

Ford Dealership Giving Away Gun Vouchers With Every Vehicle Purchase

Published

on

A Ford dealership in South Carolina is really riling up some controversy as they are handing out an American flag, a Bible, and a $400 voucher for an AR-15 to anyone who makes a purchase at their automobile lot. Carolina Ford, located in Honea Path, running a promotion for the entire month of October and November known as “God, Guns, And America. According to the dealership, the promotion is paying off as they’ve seen an uptick in sales. The dealership is passing out flags and Bibles with every purchase, however the voucher for an AR-15 is optional. If they don’t want the voucher they can have the $400 removed from the ticket price of the vehicle they have selected for purchase. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: FOX Business reporter Lauren Simonetti pointed out that the dealership has received praise and blowback on social media for the promotion, with one user saying they “can’t wait for the lawsuits when your company is held liable for a shooting.” Another user said, “God Bless America!! Good for you, too bad I don’t live closer.” People have driven as far as two hours away to purchase a new vehicle at Carolina Ford during the promotion. https://youtu.be/JsKPvQSFM4I As you can imagine, this is probably going to cause quite a stir with folks who are in favor of strict gun control measures and who would love to see a weapon like the AR-15 banned from sale across the country. However, this tactic seems to be working out well for the dealership, so regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, it’s hard to argue with a business practice that works.
