Inside the Mind of the Diva

Updated on April 4, 2019

The three-ring circus has arrived in the Democratic Party, and the main star is the diva, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).

We have brushed briefly about this woman in two articles:

But we haven't truly looked at what she means for the party. She has become the lord and savior, even appearing on Time magazine, and she is not a fringe politician.

Tom Perez, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee and the man with the most punchable face, said how she “represents the future of our party.” She graduated from Boston with a bachelor’s degree in International Relations/Economics: two things she knows nothing about.

In order to understand how AOC has become a powerful politician since she came to office, we need to start from the beginning.

She started her career by winning possibly the easiest election of all time. With a large minority demographic it is no wonder that she won the nomination away from a Joseph Crowley, a white man.


U.S. Census Bureau (2010 data)

Population: 712,053

Gender: 51% Male, 49% Female

Race[1]: 46.5% White, 11.4% Black, 16.5% Asian

Ethnicity: 46.9% Hispanic


She represents everything that is wrong with the left, up to and including her dance moves.

I’m Better Than You

There is a level of moral superiority in the way she articulates her policies.

“For me what Democratic socialism means to me… in a modern moral and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live.” Let's ignore the fact that a lot of her policies have similarly lead to countries like Venezuela, turning into absolute chaos. She is not making a controversial statement. No sane person in America agrees that a poor person should not live, we disagree with the radical policies you attempt to enforce. For example, this is like when a child decides to steal all of the food from your refrigerator to give to the homeless, and when you try to stop he just says “No one should be starving in America!”

This is a woman who stated: “Facts don't matter as long as you're morally correct.” Morality is something that is subjective. We can have different perspectives when it comes to what is moral. There is no such thing as “my truth” or “your truth,” there is just the truth.

Give Me Your $$$

There is a narrative on the left that, during the “Golden Age of the 50’s” after World War Two, America had the highest tax rate for the rich up to 90 percent; which means we need to go back to that level of taxation.

According to the Tax Foundation, the vast majority of even rich people didn't pay that much in taxes (fewer than 10,000), and even then that only applied to citizens making over $200,000 a year which was even less of that amount. So when Cortez acts like the schoolyard bully and demands Anderson Cooper for his money, we all know it will just lead to him fleeing to another country.

Accept This or You Will Die

The second thing is Medicare for all. Ben Shapiro articulates it much better than I can but, essentially you can choose three options when it comes to healthcare: quality, affordability, and universality. You can choose two of the three things, this now leads AOC to propose a bill causing another $32 trillion further into debt over the next 10 years.

Remove the US Border

“The women and children who are trying to seek refuge... are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out…” According to an article on the Town Hall, the vast majority of people are seeking employment are men, so it is just blatant intellectual dishonesty.

If the immigrants are “more American” than people living inside the country then explain to me why don't they hold the American flag when coming in. Why do they hold their home country’s flag?

There is a reason why during the 1950s African Americans used the American flag while protesting. It was meant to show that we are all Americans, that we should not see race as our identity.

Shoot the Sun in the Face

The crown jewel is the Green New Deal. It is quite possibly the biggest failure of the Democratic Party in recent history outside of the 2016 election. You can look at my article that talks more about this at the beginning, but to summarize, we need to kill all the farting cows; we need to put charging stations “everywhere”, we need to remove airplanes and use trains to travel. You get the idea. This bill was so terrible that literally, no one voted yes in both the House and the Senate.

The Future

Democrats cringe as much as most other politicians cringe too at Cortez. The voters, likewise, must have cringe too because of their active shopping for a new replacement. Her approval rating has dropped lower than Trump's. Donald Trump, the man who grabs women by the #@$^ is more popular than her. She probably won't be here for too long, especially after all she apparently can't handle helping her own constituents. According to an article on the New York Post, she was not able to do basic things, such as, aid an animal shelter or to clean up the parks in her district.

Don't worry guys she is out there “working hard,” she is spending “long hours” at the office, but strangely does not own a chair.

I would not say that I’m afraid for the future of the Democratic Party. This is coming from someone who grew up with “la chanca” so I can’t say I’m that terrified...yet.

      It turns out right now that a lot of people are changing their minds. They believe she doesn't represent them anymore as much as she wants to be some "thought leader" for the Democratic Party.

      The main reason that she won the election is because of redistricting that brought the district to 48% Latino. Cortez hmm Latino. This isn't a left or right political it is a win not because she is the best person for the job, but because like Maxine Waters the people that elect her think they really represent them.

      Her district is in NYC, do you really think her voters care about green in NYC?

      First all of, thank you for reading and commenting on my article abcedarian,

      I see an issue in today’s America with people retreating into their own bases and becoming close minded so I appreciate people like you having guts to speak your viewpoint where it may not be the most popular.

      She does say “like” a lot more than the average politician, that’s why it’s noticeable. I’m just exaggerating when I say she does it a 100 times.

      I wouldn’t necessarily say the argument that people fear her because she’s a woman. I can point to plenty of female politicians with even more power than her that doesn’t receive the amount of hate she does. The reason is because she represents a radical side of the Democratic Party which has poisoned its base into more left leaning principles that haven’t worked in a lot of other countries.

      Not sure where the "like" came from other than the Republican bashers. I actually saw her Instagram video putting together her furniture in which she articulated quite well on Trump. I've watch her speak during committee and have not heard her say "like" or talk like a "valley girl" as those on Fox like to say. People fear her because she's a woman and she speaks her mind. If it were Trump and his big mouth we wouldn't be asking this question. Just look how many people protect him and when he opens his mouth he sounds like he's ready for a straight jacket.
