Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness.

One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.”

Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC.

“I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation.

“I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.”

McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.”

“[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need to have a military coup to have a socialist country, most countries have voted it in,” McConnell said. “ …They’re giving away free this, free that, free that — who do you think is going to pay for that? All the rest of the productive parts of society. So, the president’s on to something here.”

Why is it people like AOC and the rest of the Squad can’t just take policy positions and present well-reasoned cases to support them? Why does everything that comes out of their mouths have to be a personal attack?

The answer is simple. The facts do not back up their assertions and they know it. If it comes down to trying to win hearts and minds with logic, reason, and facts, their whole worldview falls apart like a house of cards. They stand zero chance of winning folks over to their view.

So instead, they stir up emotions and get people who hate the GOP whipped up in a frenzy to make them a very vocal majority that casts a shadow larger than the reality. It’s a cheap tactic and those whom employ it should be ashamed of themselves.

Two Men Break Into Texas Man’s Home Before Dawn. It’s A Huge Mistake And You Already Know Why.

God bless Texas.

A homeowner in Nacogdoches, Texas was forced to defend his home from intruders, one of whom was carrying a pistol. As you can probably imagine, with this story having unfolded in Texas, these two punks learned you don’t mess with a man’s home, especially in the Lone Star state. This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we have the Second Amendment and why we need to fight hard against the liberals who want to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gun control laws don’t stop bad guys from getting guns. They just create more victims of violence instead. Here’s more from TheBlaze: After the single shot, both men apparently no longer felt welcome and bolted from the home, KYTX noted. Officers responded to the home invasion report just after 5:30 a.m. — and later responded to a nearby hospital regarding an individual suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, the station said. Turns out the patient was the alleged intruder the homeowner shot, KTYX reported. Laquintin Lockhart, 30, was then arrested at the hospital on Monday afternoon. He’s been charged with aggravated robbery according to local law enforcement. Police went on to say the second suspect is still on the loose, though the department is continuing to investigate. Guns are nothing more than tools, which means they are incapable of committing acts of right and wrong. What matters is whose hands these tools are in, and unfortunately, gun control laws only serve to harm law-abiding citizens, a simple fact the left just refuses to acknowledge. Without the Second Amendment guaranteeing that the God-given right to own a firearm for the protection of life, liberty, and property, this man would’ve been victimized and possibly deprived of his most precious gift. It’s not fair to leave folks like him…

AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening. Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being. This is not how you win elections, AOC. From TheBlaze: The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.” Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website. Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message. So…
