CNN: Conservatives Attack Ocasio-Cortez Because She's 'Eloquent,' 'Latina'
By Brad Wilmouth | March 31, 2019 5:04 PM EDT

On Saturday's CNN Newsroom with Ana Cabrera, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the reason freshman New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is so often attacked by conservatives is because she is "incredibly charismatic," "a young Latina," and "incredibly eloquent."

The CNN reporter named everything except the actual reason -- her self-identified "socialist" views were so popular with her party's base that she defeated an entrenched Democratic incumbent.

She speaks in word salad, liberally sprinkled with "like" and "ya know".  There is no eloquence in her salad.

Incredibly "charismatic"?
I couldn't say, guess it depends on who "the charisma" is aimed at.

"A young Latina"?
There are millions of them. She's just one more.

"Incredibly eloquent"?
Having lots of words doesn't make you.... you know... "eloquent".

Tucker Carlson on AOC: "Like a lot of narcissistic children, AOC doesn’t believe in honest disagreement, everything’s a moral question. If you agree with her you are virtuous. If you don’t you are a monster. There can be no compromise. ... [The] AOC moment will pass, it’s too stupid to continue."
"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."

Yeah, like, she's, uh, SO eloquent.

AOC is many things: arrogant, subversive, hateful, and yes, Latina... but she has all the eloquence of a Valley Girl.

Why is it so hard for leftists to accept it is our disagreement with their insane, corrosive ideology that motivates us?

Because they know that an honest airing of their actual political intentions would result in the Left being rejected at the ballot box. Democrats are perpetually engaged in political slight of hand and obfuscation. Rules for Radicals put into practice.

For the exact same reason that if you disagreed with Obozo's policies you were racist. That places the onus on you. On the other hand when you disagree with a person's policies or ideas that opens up the possibility that they are in error and should reconsider or re-evaluate those policies or ideas. It has to do with a level of maturity. They can't accept that sHrillary lost the election and they are acting like petulant children.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Remember well how the msm couldn't get enough of DJT no matter what he said.
As for AOC, they forgot to add 'ignorant' and she is.
