Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Why, that’s so moderate! – Tim Ryan became the 2,342nd Democrat to announce his presidential candidacy this week, and the fake news media universally declared him to be a “moderate” among the field of socialists, Leninists, Stalinists, Marxists and outright commies who were already in the race.
How do we know Mr. Ryan, a Democrat congressman from Ohio, is “moderate”? Why, just look at his position on abortion: He’s all in favor of murdering children right up to the point at which they’re about to be born into this world, but unlike all the other ghouls already in the race, he’s against killing them after they’re already breathing free air. In reality, Mr. Ryan is every bit as batsh*t crazy as any of the other lunatics in the race, but he has a nice, tidy haircut, speaks fairly softly, isn’t out there on TV every day lying about having inside information that President Donald Trump is a spy for the Russkies, and as I say, has yet to announce his support of outright infanticide.
That makes him a “moderate” among today’s Democrat Party. My goodness.
And speaking of “moderate” Democrats… – Ok, just kidding. I’m talking about our very favorite demented Democrat Socialist freak, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” for short.
AOC has apparently been taking “blackspeak” lessons from Hillary Clinton, and it got her into yet another controversy yesterday after she gave a speech to fake Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.
But first, a reminder of the context here: Who could ever forget this clip of the Pantsuit Princess giving a talk in Selma, Alabama, employing her impression of what Democrat racists like to refer to as “southern negro dialect”:
The insulting, condescending pandering to the mostly-black audience in the room that day literally bleeds through the screen. The Coughing Crook’s political mentor, segregationist Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, would have been so proud.
As always, AOC chooses her own role models unwisely (first Stalin and Pol Pot, now the Fainting Felon), and she decided it would be just a peachy idea to engage in a little HRC condescension of her own when speaking to Sharpton’s audience. The similarity is spooky:

To be clear, her words are fine: All of the lines of work she talks about there amount to very noble work that needs to be done, and I’ve done most of them myself in my younger days. But why try to say it all in a fake dialect? What’s the point of that, other than patronizing condescension and contempt for the audience?
Naturally, Twitter went wild in response to the release of that video, mocking the freshman congresswoman for descending even further into the depths of Democrat depravity than she had already gone before, which frankly had seemed almost impossible for her to do. And very predictably – as is her habit – AOC responded to the mocking by trying to paint herself as some sort of victim:
Folks talking about my voice can step right off. Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same.
Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up.
My Spanish is the same way.
These conspiracy mills are 🚮. https://t.co/8li33Jd6DL

The problem is, no one was talking about “her” voice or her “distinct linguistic culture” – had she stuck to her own very distinctive accent, no one would’ve said boo about it. She was being slammed for trying to appropriate an entire class of people’s own accent and dialect, and failing miserably in doing so.
It’s demeaning to the audience, it’s insulting and yes, it is racist. Yet, there is a certain class of Democrat politician – usually, the phoniest among them – who think it’s a perfectly fine thing for them to do in front of largely-black audiences. YouTube is littered with videos of prominent, heinously phony Democrats like Barack Obama and Al Gore, in addition to the Grasping Grifter, employing this insulting tactic.
Now, AOC takes her place among that millieu. She’s learning fast what it takes to become a real rising star in the Democrat Party today.
That is all.
