Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC) may actually be blocked from getting a speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention this month, based on a report. Omigod, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I think America is in need of a good laugh, so what gives?
Even though the 30-year-old brainless Democratic socialist is one of the most recognizable new leaders in the party, centrists are opposed to giving her time to speak, because they have no idea what she will really say. She’s an embarrassment to the moderates.
It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Most Democrats are radical progressives today. Radicals know they don’t normally get elected when they tell you their real agenda, so they give you the usual platitudes about helping the poor, enhancing education, pretty much any lie they think they can get away with. AOC has no filter. She says what’s on her mind, and the Democrats have a enough trouble trying to figure out how to get their nominee to speak properly for more than 30 seconds. Now they gotta worry about AOC letting the cat out of the bag for what the Democrats really want to do to the country? To borrow a phrase from AOC, I don’t think so.
“I think Bernie and Warren will speak, and they’ll represent the progressive wing of the party very ably,” former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell told Politico.
Rendell, a longtime friend of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, said it would be unfair to spotlight Ocasio-Cortez, who took office last year after a shocking primary upset.
“If you picked AOC, why wouldn’t you pick Katie Porter or why wouldn’t you pick Madeleine Dean or Mary Gay Scanlon?” Rendell said, referring to other recently elected congresswomen.
On a side not, I’m from Philly, and Ed Rendell is one of the most slimy characters to ever run the DNC. As District Attorney of Philadelphia, Rendell once intentionally withheld exculpatory evidence that exonerated a man he had put on death row, knowing he was innocent, in order to help his reelection by saying he caught the murderer of two innocent people at a Philadelphia restaurant. They had no leads, so they picked a man Neil Ferber who lived in the area.
A source close to Democratic convention planning said that more details about the speakers list may be released next week.
“What is currently confirmed are the Obamas will be involved, the VP nominee Wednesday, Biden on Thursday and a tribute to John Lewis,” the person said.
Spokespeople for Ocasio-Cortez, who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens, didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.
Though AOC is an inspirational figure for younger left-wing voters with skulls full of mush, she’s additionally a frequent point of focus for President Trump, who mocks her as a moronic radical. She’s so dumb she thinks the Mexican border pays rent.
On Thursday, Trump slammed AOC as “a real beauty” who “knows nothing about the economy.” He singled out policies in her Green New Deal proposal.
“She knows as much about the environment — do we have any young children here? — as that young child over there. I think he knows more,” Trump said.
AOC is known for saying things that are unbecoming of a member of Congress. She runs her mouth before checking what she’s about to say, and has filled YouTube with videos of her doing face plants in congressional hearings.
