The democrats seem willing to try just about anything to stay relevant in 2018, especially given their consistent failures in the realm of disparaging President Donald Trump.
And, to be honest, the left needs to be open to trying new things…that whole “let’s elect Hillary” thing was about as old hat as it gets, and we all saw just how that turned out for the democrats.
So, the latest wunderkind in the leftist ranks is avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – a 28 year old New Yorker who has been making the rounds in the mainstream media as the latest, greatest hope for the doomed democratic party. The only problem is that Ocasio-Cortez has hit more than a few speed bumps in this latest press blitz, including embarrassing stints on major cable news programs attempting to explain that “socialism works”.
Meanwhile, there are videos on YouTube of Venezuelans beating cows to death with sticks in order to eat, thanks to the failure of socialism in that country.
Now, Ocasio-Cortez’s month is getting even worse, after her kiss of death sent nearly every single politician that she endorsed in the 2018 primaries packing.
Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.
El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.
Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.
Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.
This is what happens when it takes all of 30 seconds to search for socialist success stories on the internet and realize that there aren’t any. Politicians like Ocasio-Cortez are merely political cold readers, asking if anyone in their audience either knows anyone whose name starts with the letter “B”, or whether or not they’d like free money. Everyone answers yes, like some tawdry television psychic.
Thanks to the information age, nobody’s falling for it anymore.
