In a town hall in Queens, New York, on Wednesday night, self-proclaimed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is up for re-election, responded to her enraged constituents in a fake Latino accent: “All right, all right, listen! All right, listen! Listen OK, listen!” The congresswoman also danced mockingly to the beat of angry voters chanting, “AOC has got to go!”
It’s unclear whether the dancing was meant to be funny, cute, or dismissive. Her furious constituents, concerned about crime rates and gender-bending craziness, continued to heckle.
It’s also unclear if using the accent was meant to mock her predominantly Hispanic constituency, or if she was trying to garner Latino cred. This wouldn’t be the first time AOC has used fake accents. The congresswoman has used a “blaccent” in the past, perhaps taking a cue from another Democrat superstar, Hillary Clinton.
AOC really likes using race to her advantage. In a 2020 interview during the Black Lives Matter race riots when left-wing attention was centered on black Americans, AOC said, “I always say Latinos are black,” causing many to speculate the comment had to do with her desire to be the “biggest victim.” And in a recent GQ interview, AOC tried to brandish her victim status by claiming she may not be alive by September due to the country’s hatred for “women of color” such as her.
In a surprising turn for New York’s liberal 14th District, AOC’s constituents have been unafraid to show their dissatisfaction with her. At yet another town hall in the Bronx, she was lectured by constituents for voting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Liz Cheney to send yet another $725 million to Ukraine on top of the billions in taxpayer dollars the U.S. has already sent. “You’re voting to start a nuclear war,” her constituents told her. Rather than giving an explanation for her vote, AOC scolded her constituent for supposedly speaking out of turn.
Another constituent called her a sell-out and a war hawk: “Tulsi Gabbard, she’s left the Democratic Party because they’re a bunch of war hawks. You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China. Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?”
The left’s radical agenda isn’t working for Americans. Whether you are on the right or the left, families are feeling the 40-year record-high Bidenflation. Every day it’s harder to afford gas, groceries, and heating bills. On top of all that, millions are terrified of our reckless and self-interested leaders risking nuclear war with Russia.
When people are this angry and scared, sassy dance moves, fake accents, and dismissive narcissism only stoke the flames. AOC’s tired tricks aren’t working anymore, even in New York.
