As if we didn’t already know, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally achieved top-status in the Democratic party.
After astoundingly nit witted comments, a complete lack of economic sense (despite having a degree in economics), and child-like faith that puts all 5-year olds to shame, she is now recognized as the leader of right-wing mockery.
As such, she has been dubbed by CNN as the new “bogeyman.”
As reported by CNN:
(CNN)To warm up the crowd before President Donald Trump took the stage for a campaign rally in Michigan on Thursday night, his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., laid into the proposed “Green New Deal” as typical of the pie-in-the-sky, price-is-no-concern vision Democrats have for the future of the country.
“AOC Sucks! AOC Sucks!” chanted the crowd on cue.AOC, in case you have been hiding under a pile of coats for the past year or so, is Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. And the crowd’s reaction on Thursday confirms something that’s become increasingly clear over these past few months: AOC is the new Republican bogeyman (or bogeywoman) of choice.
What do I mean? Well, remember when you were a kid and your parents would scare you into staying in your bed by telling you that if you got up again the bogeyman would get you? (OK, maybe that was just me. But you get the idea.) A bogeyman is a thing that goes bump in the night, the goblin underneath your bed, the Headless Horseman to your Ichabod Crane taking a walk on a lonely dirt road.
Ocasio-Cortez’s belief system, her youth and her outspokenness make her the perfect foil for the President as he prepares to run for a second term. She is the future Democrats want, Trump will argue, a socialist future where government runs everything. And, if Thursday night in Michigan is any indication, the crowd will give Trump exactly the reaction he is seeking.In politics, a bogeyman is used to scare people too. To scare them into giving money, to turn out and vote, to stay involved in the political process — for fear that, if they don’t, the bogeyman (or woman) will seize power and make their lives miserable. Republicans have used a number of Democratic bogeymen over the years, from Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy to Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. The key for a successful Democratic bogeyman is that (a) the person is well-known to the GOP base and (b) the person makes Republicans angry or scared or ideally both.
The indications of Trump’s future success is something that we can all agree on, with or without people’s hatred of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Just look at Trump’s most recent rally Thursday night in Michigan.
You KNOW it was an amazing rally when the liberal media are forced to go on a damage-control spree shown in the headlines below:
