Learn from the Left's mistakes
Much has been made over the last week or so within the various circles of the Right about the victory of one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who as far as I can tell is the latest Latina Marxist nutbag who wants to be the General in command of the Free Shit Army.
She is succeeding.
Take a look at her campaign ad, which was one of several that she used, to great effect, to unseat Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth highest ranking jackass in the House of Representatives:
She lays out her platform toward the end, and it is pretty obvious what she wants to give people:
"What the Bronx and Queens needs is Medicare for all, tuition-free public college, a Federal jobs guarantee and criminal justice reform".
The Right has heaped scorn and opprobrium upon her, mostly because her ideological platform is so ridiculous. She ran as an explicit democratic socialist in the ideological footprints of creaky cranky Vermont Gamma male grandpa par excellence Bernie Sanders. And she has been embraced by no less than the DNC Chairman Tom Perez as "the future of [the Democratic] Party".
The Right promptly blew up.
Many of us fell over laughing hysterically at how stupid her ideas are. We know perfectly well that socialism simply does not work - no matter how many times you try to put lipstick on that particular sow, it always returns to its mire to wallow in the filth and misery that it creates. So we started trolling and mocking her, because why the hell not.
One of the more enterprising (and, it must be admitted, really quite attractive) female conservatives decided to create a mock interview with Ms. Wossname by using clips from her (disastrous train-wreck of an) appearance on PBS's The Firing Line, which turned out really rather well:
Others cranked the outrageously outrageous outrage!!! up to 11. Fox News, in particular, has been blasting and ridiculing Ms. Hyphenated-Name for a while now. Take a look at what His Seanness had to say about her:
And here is Tomi Lahren on Watters' World, taking Ms. Mystery-Meat there to task for her hilariously inept response to a pretty standard softball question from the Palestinian Bullshitting Station:
It really is a lot of fun to mock socialists, because they are so predictably stupid. There is no question that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's grasp of facts is... tenuous, at best, and her understanding of what this "socialism" is, happens to be utterly hopeless.
However - and now it is time to get serious - it is important to understand the parallels between people like Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Sanders, and the epic rise (and rise, and rise) of the God-Emperor.
As we saw throughout the campaign of Donaldus Triumphus, from mid-2015 to the end of 2016, the God-Emperor too was often guilty of getting his facts wrong. His grasp of certain topics was poor. He was not - and is not - a particularly good public speaker; his vocabulary is limited to what seems like about a thousand words and consists mostly of superlatives and pejoratives. (Then again, he is a great salesman and promoter, so that is probably unsurprising.)
I remember with particular amusement an interview question popped to him by a sympathetic right-wing outlet - might have been Breitbart, actually - asking him what his favourite Bible passage was, and he mentioned something in II Corinthians. Which was fine and dandy - except that he actually said, "Two Corinthians" - not "Second Corinthians".
It was a small but telling moment that indicated to many of us on the Right that Donald Trump might just be a closet liberal at heart and a Trojan Horse candidate. Many of us - self included - immediately became quite suspicious and insisted on waiting and watching to see whether any form of ideological and practical consistency would reveal itself through the course of his campaign.
Fortunately, our fears proved unjustified. As the true God-Emperor, President Trump has governed as pretty much exactly what he said he was going to be: a populist civic nationalist committed to returning power back to the American people, faithfully executing the laws of the land as passed by Congress, and restoring the greatness and pride of America to its former glory.
He is a hugely flawed man, without question - but he has nonetheless proven to be already the most consequential President since his illustrious predecessor, Saint Reagan the Great. (I am not making fun of President BAMF, by the way - I yield to no one in my respect for and admiration of The Gipper, flawed and fallible though he too proved to be.)
But it is important to understand that President Trump and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represent flip sides of the exact same coin.
President Trump is what you get when a majority-white nation of people are sick and tired of the Establishment making a colossal mess of things, and vote in a member of the elite who has turned his back completely on his own class and promises to restore American greatness and power.
He is the direct end-result of fifty years of Leftist intersectional politics.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is what you get when a national racial minority becomes a local majority in an area where people are sick and tired of the Establishment making a colossal mess of things, and vote in a member of the people who claims to be one of them and fight for them and promises to give everyone free stuff.
She, too, is the direct end-result of fifty years of Leftist intersectional politics.
Take a look at the racial makeup of New York's 14th Congressional District:
- 18.41% White
- 11.39% Black
- 16.24% Asian
- 49.80% Hispanic
- 0.45% Native American
- 3.71% other
