There are many lessons to be learned from Tuesday’s election results, but AOC’s assertion isn’t one of them. Terry McAuliffe didn’t lose because he wasn’t far enough to the left… far from it. McAuliffe lost because, among other things, his unrepentant leftism turned off large swaths of Virginia’s electorate; in historic numbers. And we shouldn’t assume AOC is simply trying to sugarcoat things, that’s not what’s at play with her comments here. There’s no doubt: AOC truly believes the reason McAuliffe lost was that he was too moderate.
AOC and her Squad want you to think they are champions of the little people, and that Biden is onboard with them. They are champions of themselves feeding on the little people. They are driven to change America into a Socialistic country, but I do not think they are wise enough to look into the future. What they are working to create is a failure.
It used to be that both parties could go along to get along and America would be relatively well off either way. One gets the sense it didn’t much matter whether Nixon or JFK was president, things would have been somewhat similar either way, however dire and important the elections seemed at the time. Such is life during the calmer phases of history’s cycles.
The congresswoman, who likes to portray herself as a staunch feminist, apparently misses the irony of her statement. If you’re trying to defend a woman’s so-called right to an abortion AOC, it would probably help if you actually called that person a woman. And if there is indeed no such thing as gender, and if we must pretend that anyone can menstruate, how do you know that Governor Abbott can’t menstruate?
