“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dominated the South by Southwest conference with her mere presence, bringing in a larger crowd than any of the 2020 presidential contenders, all of whom were asked about her or her Green New Deal in their own sessions at the popular event…

…The crowd rose to its feet, whooping, cheering and hollering when Ocasio-Cortez entered, but, when she spoke, you could hear a pin drop….

…She slammed the treatment of minorities throughout recent American history from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, which she claimed was racist, to Ronald Reagan’s treatment of minorities.

She decried the idea of incrementalism, a belief in change via small steps, and said it took big sweeping ideas to make a difference.

  • ‘This idea of like 10 percent better than garbage shouldn’t be something we settle for,’ she said.
  • ‘We fix the pipes in Flint first. We fix the electrical grid in Puerto Rico first. And we fully fund the pensions of coal miners in West Virginia,’ she said to applause.
  • ”It’s not the CEO that’s creating billions of dollars of value a year; it’s workers who are creating it,’ she said.
  • ‘I think that the effort to divide to race and class has always been the tool of powerful to take away the control of the government from the every day working people,’ she told the crowd to great applause.
  • ‘We seek and prioritize profit and the accumulation of money above all else … above any human and environmental cost,’ she said. ‘To me that ideology is unsustainable and it cannot be redeemed.’

 “(Elizabeth) Warren was asked if the youngest member of Congress was under-hyped or overhyped?

‘Right hyped,’ the Massachusetts senator said.”

If you listen very carefully you can hear Tucker Carlson wailing, gnashing his teeth and calling for his mommy…

I am blown away at the influence this lady has managed to pull together in such a short time. The good ol’ boyz are falling all over themselves to tear her down and every time they come out wallowing in the dirt. This is a “freshmen” Rep, and she is handling them like a bunch of grade school boys who got caught trying to peak in the girls locker room. Impressive is putting it mildly.


Meanwhile, the smarter, more strategic freshman reps are building alliances, learning the job and figuring out how to pass legislation. Let her pose for the media; she’s not handing anyone anything except little starbursts. And the good ol’ boyz have as much of a crush on her as the leftie boys do, which is really what its all about. Yes, it IS about the locker room, and not about any particular wisdom or intelligence on her part.

Could I just say how disappointing this is to me? One of the several reasons I escaped here is to get away from the endless “OMG AOC said a thing!!!!!!!” posts I see elsewhere. Yes, she is a pretty young woman saying things a lot of less attractive, less sexy Democrats have been saying more eloquently and with more authority for years. That’s exciting! I get it!! Little starbursts all over the living room!!! Fact is, she’s one more distraction from all the serious stuff that’s going on, just as the whole Ilhan Omar thing is, which is really outraging… Read more »
I don’t know – I was sorta impressed that she has already submitted the Green New Deal. A lot of thought went into that and it is really taking off. The republicans are upset because she hasn’t fallen in line with what they think freshman congress critters are suppose to be, especially female ones. MSM is all owned by republicans – they got exactly what they wanted and have no intentions of changing the agenda. AOC is getting publicity because she stands for clicks – the only thing MSM is interested in. I just hope they don’t wear her down… Read more »
