Green New Deal Architect Blames a Right Wing Conspiracy for Her Unpopularity

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it is not her fault that people don’t love her anymore.

Nolte: Crybaby Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blames Unpopularity on Fox News, Breitbart

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has entered week two of her crybaby meltdown over disastrous poll numbers and now she’s blaming Fox News and Breitbart News for her unpopularity.

Quinnipiac is one of the most unreliable left-wing pollsters out there (not named Marist or CNN), so when the Q-poll has bad news for America’s Socialist “It Girl,” it is worth taking notice.

Quinnipiac found Ocasio-Crazy’s national favorability rating sits at a pathetic 23 percent; her unfavorable is 36 percent, which means she is upside down by double digits — 13 whole points. 

What’s driving Ocasio-Crazy crazy is that this is the fourth poll this year that proves just how wildly unpopular she and her terrible ideas are.

My question – why would Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s former supporters be influenced by news outlets they never watch?

If AOC wants to find a conspiracy of people trying to undermine her and her green ideas, she should probably look a little closer to home.

It’s almost as though there is a directed + concerted far-left propaganda machine with most of the cable news channels, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by Soros et al dedicated to maligning Trump & stoking nat’l division

Even I have to admit the anti-AOC hysteria on the right rivals the anti-trump mania from the left. When are people going to realize that kind of hate only makes the people they are disparaging more popular.

The difference is that it isn’t anti-AOC hysteria on the right. It is anti-Socialism on the right. No one cares about AOC as a person. What they care about are the idiotic ideas she professes.

It’s not that way on the left. It is *truly* anti-trump mania there. They hate the person of Donald Trump with a passion I have never seen for an American President.

But she does appear to love her new-found role which she was recruited into by the sunrise movement. The justice Democrats and sunrisers are about to throw her in front of the bus and back pseudo-centrist Kamala Harris, as AOC’s ethical improprieties are being exposed.

Did the TEA Party “hate” Obama? The TEA Party was the prime driver of the right during Obama’s eight years. The TEA Party “hated” what Obama proposed, e.g. Obamacare, killing coal, “transforming America”. I never heard any “hate Obama” speech at a TEA Party rally, but I heard lots of vitriol about higher taxes having to change doctors!

Ditto.

AOC is a sleuth anarchist.

AOC really, really, believes the fairy tales concerning ‘green’ scams and CAGW. She is clueless, as to the real issues. She unintentionally brings chaos.

Emotions get in the way of analysis.

Emotions and fanatic idealism is the reason why the left news/political parties do not present realistic, honest pro/cons lists comparing options, why there are no alternative ideas presented, why the standard things companies do to solve problems are not apply to understand and solve problems.

The so called Right side, is logical.

The Right side, has forums where issues are discussed.

Calling people names, rather than discussing the issues is irrational and boring.

Nothing in your statement makes sense.

AOC is her own worst enemy; especially when blinsiding Americans with her ignorance, pettiness, ferocious assaults on topics she knows nothing about, and an utter inability to learn from her mistakes.

Add in her narcissist ego does not allow her to accept or acknowledge her own errors or offer honest apologies.

Trump has withstood over the top obstructionism on the most sensible policies; including policies used by the preceding Administration.
Even with these nonstop anti-Trump efforts, Trump has performed wonders for America on Trade, International Relations, Global Warming aka climate whatever, Economy, Reduction of unnecessary regulations, Jobs, Manufacturing, Energy, etc. etc.

Among AOC’s fairy tales she states Earth will end in 11 years 10 months and a few days unless America spends at least $63 Trillion to ineffectively combat whatever she thinks “climate change” is.

AK: I agree, whiten seems concerned. We don’t want to appear to be mean to a girl! Breitbart quotes Alexandria being surprised at all the hate, she expected just some concern trolls (a projection for the ages). Whiten, she expected you to be concerned against her, not for her.

IMO Alexandria is simply saying out loud what the D’s really want, and the press wants to hear it. Older D’s don’t say this stuff out loud because they know Dem policies are a pillow on the face of the economy, and while they don’t care if R’s know that or the press (who have kept it quiet for them going on 60 years), they DON’T want union folks and working class folks to get that message. The problem is, Alexandria is too naive to understand that she speaks too plainly, and people get just how awful her green old deal would be for working class folks. For the sake of all, we need to keep calling out backwards economics. Alexandria has emerged as the most high profile promoter of backwards economics and if she gets mud splattered on her white dress, it’s richly deserved and not cause for concern. Sorry, whiten, you’re too squishy.

You sort of have a point but let’s be clear – AOC is saying that you have to give her loads of your money and lots of your freedom to do as she thinks best. People telling her to go away us hardly surprising. She’s not suggesting we all get together to try and find solutions. She is in charge, she knows best, you have to knuckle under.

But the planet loves her, apparently:

“America is fortunate to have a powerful fighting spirit in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She has strong instincts about the dangers of global warming. She is beating the drums for a Green New Deal, which cannot come soon enough and, in fact, may not come soon enough to save most life on the planet.

But, brushing aside off-putting Republican obstructionism, the planet is endorsing AOC, as it sends clear signals of impending disaster straight out of East Antarctica.

After all, no signal can be as strong as the melting of the coldest spot on the planet, which is comparable to knocking someone in the head with a ball-peen hammer as a wake up call.”

She’s good for a laugh a day, compounded by the likes of Warren, Markey, Booker, and many others that have jumped on her bandwagon before realizing it’s really a manure hauler. She was even smart enough to pull the GND off her web site while these others were talking its virtues! She may be a Latin equivalent of a blonde, but where does that leave these other folks?

I don’t hate her! She’s a child. Children say stupid things. Chuckle (or guffaw) and wait for the next comment!

Perhaps it is advisable to understand what the difference is between left and right. Left is totalitarianism while right is anarchy. All socialistic doctrine is left while constitutionalism is center. Right isn’t NAZI it’s anarchy. NAZI is Left. Once the terms are understood, today’s rhetoric of left and right are promulgated by leftists because they assume we’re all stupid.

Even I have to admit the anti-AOC hysteria on the right rivals the anti-trump mania from the left.

Eh? What are you smoking? There is nothing on the right that comes close to the utter vile hatred for Trump (not just for his ideas and policies but for Trump personally) that is spewed daily by the left. Not even Clinton or Obama received that level of complete venom-dripping hatred. What you see with AOC is dislike for her *ideas* and *policies* not for her personally. While I can see where you might come to the conclusion that the right is a bit obsessed with AOC, that’s only because she keeps opening her mouth and letting out the stupidest stuff (3 chambers of congress, farting cows, Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs, “We’re gonna flip this seat red”, “She is, she is the leader of, of– no no, she, I mean, um, um, Speaker, or rather Leader Pelosi, hopefully, um, you know, we’ll see, she’s uh, she’s the current leader of the party and I think the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House, we our leadership in the Senate as well.”,etc) It’s not hysteria you are seeing, it’s hysterical laughter. she is the gift that keeps on giving.

Well, I can tell you why – it’s because she’s a living punch-line to every lie a progressive has told me over my entire life.
Staring with ‘we’re not anti-capitalist socialists’ – well, SHE is.
‘We’re not taking away your guns’ – well, SHE is.
‘We’re not taking away your cars’ – well, SHE is.
‘We’re not telling you that you can’t eat meat’ – well, SHE is.
‘We’re not taking away air-travel’ – well, SHE is.

I could go on – heating homes, freedom of speech, openly stoking racist/sexist hatred – feel free to add any others you can think of.

And by the way it DOESN’T match the anti-Trump hate – it’s grounded in policy and reality, and WE aren’t showing the kind of reprehensible behavior and disregard for law and general human decency that has become progressive trademark.

The “wow” factor that she thought she had has evaporated right in front of her. Reality is harsh and unforgiving, but it appears that she’s never had to face it before. I keep thinking about what I and others in my generation had done by the time we were 30, and by comparison, she’s done nothing. This won’t tone down her barking, but it does make it more clear that she’s a spoiled brat.

Neither of those ladies, Members of the house (including the speaker) can’t make senators do anything.

Now Crying Chuck may have consulted with old Nancy to make sure they were publicly on the same page, but she didn’t make him do anything he didn’t already want to do.

She’s a sock puppet for a far-Left NGO called Justice Democrats (JD—a George Soros gig).

JD gives AOC a script that she parrots, which is why she makes such hilarious blunders whenever she goes off script even a little…which she does on a daily basis…

She was a vacuous uneducated bartender at a taco restaurant before JD chose her based on her looks, personality, love for Socialism and intersectionality ranking—actually AOC’s brother put her name in the hat for JD consideration..

She wasn’t even in the room when JD came up with their hairbrained GND manifesto…

Because she is still an honest marxist “true believer” and has not yet become a “hidden agenda”, back door, incremental, democratic socialist” who dreams of their grandkids one day living in a glorious communist utopia, I want everyone to know what she stands for and listen to her explain it.

I still don’t get this whole ‘attractive’ thing. I mean, OK, she’s prettier than Clinton or Pelosi, but on the grand scale of things she’s a 4 and crazy with it. I see many much better-looking girls every time I go shopping.

And, yes, the only reason anyone talks about her is because she’s poison to political centrists. She’s the poster-girl for the crazy in the Democrat party.

“Whats driving me crazy is this obsession with her. If she is so stupid, so juvenile, so nutty why is she being treated like such a dangerous threat? Why isn’t she being ignored?”

She is not being ignored because the Leftwing News Media keeps putting her out in public and promoting her and her ideas.

The Leftwing Media and the Democrats are looking for a new leader, so when they spot what they think they are looking for, like with AOC, they go out of their way to fawn all over her and promote everything she says, hoping her popularity will take off as she rises to the occasion and uses all this free publicity to establish herself as a big player for the futrure.

Unfortunately, for the Democrats, it doesn’t seem to be going so well for AOC. Their promotions are not helping her because she promotes outlandish ideas and gives the impression that she thinks she is smarter than everyone eles.

Looking for a new hero of the Democrats is also what is behind the Leftwing Media promoting “Beto”. Even though he is white, he looked at first like a good candidate with the right ideology, but his personal actions and past actions are tainting him now, and the really radical Left are bashing him because he is white. They look a little disorganized.

The Democrats don’t have a dynamic leader. They desperately want one to counter Trump. I don’t see anyone on their side that qualifies. A bunch of lightweights, to put it kindly. And if they ever got in Office, they would be a great danger to our Republic. None of the Democrats would make an acceptable president. We need people who are anchored in reality to be the president, and the Democrats are anchored in delusions and false realities. They are incapable of defending us because they don’t see the world clearly.

Things are looking better for our side than they are for the socialists but the political battles are not over and the winner is not certain. Keep up the good rhetorical fight.

There were these two guys on Toronto city council, Rob Ford and Jack Layton. They were buddies in spite of the fact that one was hard right and the other was hard left. What they had in common was their ability to talk to people and listen and learn. Rob became mayor of Toronto and died way too early. There’s a good chance Jack could have become Canada’s Prime Minister except for his untimely death.

The politicians we love seem to love us.

My advice to AOC is to get back in the trenches with your constituents. Forget the big stupid theories and get real. The people will probably forgive you. Anyway, since you apparently need reminding, it’s not supposed to be about you.

In my opinion, the best way to get rid of all of this climate change silliness is to get the left to push for getting rid of “rich mens’ toys” … private jets, yachts, mansions … that will displease the wealthy benefactors behind this lunacy.

Get AOC to start mouthing that private jets and yachts should be seized and scrapped in order to reduce CO2. Next time a global warming bobblehead spouts off about how we’re destroying the world, challenge them to have Congress outlaw private jets, yachts, and all private houses that are larger than 4000 square feet. Go ahead and use some silly number like ‘that would reduce the US’ carbon footprint by 20% tomorrow’.

I’d bet that getting the left mobilized to take away that stuff would suddenly make global warming go away. (ie the data adjustments would stop cooling the past and warming the present).

They used her as their propaganda pawn, putting her on the front lines to take the hits of disapproval, while they remained in the background, merely connected to her by way of puppet strings.
