AOC Makes Desperate Attempt to Redefine 'Woke' to Slander Conservatives

It no longer surprises the nation at large when the liberal left begins to redefine reality or alter our agreed-upon language, but the latest proclamation by precocious progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez feels more like a schoolyard insult than anything else.

AOC, who has long been the poster child for the “woke” faction of the Democratic Party, is now simply attempting to change the definition of the colloquial adjective in order to make her political opponents appear racist.

In a series of tweets, the congresswoman said that Democrats believing in a “woke problem” will hurt their chances for reelection because they “rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights.”

“One dangerous aspect of thinking there’s a ‘woke problem’ is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights,” she tweeted. “Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses.”

Then came the illogical assault on the GOP.

According to AOC, the term “woke” has been appropriated by Republicans as a “derogatory euphemism for civil rights & justice,” charging that Fox News not only serves to indoctrinate right-wingers but also to trick Democrats into believing that racial justice is “controversial.”

If this sounds familiar, it may be due to our exposure to the argument that “I’m rubber, you’re glue”, that most adults have stopped employing on account of, well, growing up.

If desperation had a preferred tactic, it would be rewriting the language used by those who disagree with you in order to somehow take ownership of the complaints you’ve been saddled with, and this latest move by AOC reeks of it.
