New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was just treated like nothing more than a sex object by the most unlikely of sources.
The New York Times published an op ed on Sunday that reduced all of the 29-year-old’s, admittedly bonehead ideas, to her looks.
The Federalist Papers Reports:
“The men at Fox News have a sickly obsession with AOC, partly because they resent her cleverness, charisma and moral vitality, but mostly because they suspect that in high school she was one of those girls they had no hope of getting a date with,” The Times wrote in a tweet.
“I realize that this has become axiomatic on America’s excitable right. I know also that in this country we employ terms like ‘socialism’ with wanton indifference to historical details and conceptual distinctions.
“I grasp too that many among us truly believe that, say, a higher marginal tax rate or a public subsidy for poor children’s dentistry is only a step away from the gulags.
“And I am painfully aware that the male Fox commentariat nurtures its sickly obsession with Ms. Ocasio-Cortez partly because they resent her cleverness, charisma and moral vitality, but mostly because they suspect that in high school she was one of those girls they had no hope of getting a date with (though, really, she comes across as someone who could look past a face of even the purest suet if she thought she glimpsed a healthy soul behind it),” the author wrote.
The worst part about it was that the op ed itself managed to somehow be worse than the tweet which got destroyed.
Conservatives: The Green New Deal’s socialist policies would be economic suicide.
New Yorkers: You cost us tens of thousands of jobs.
Nancy Pelosi: You are a small fringe in the party. Democrats reject socialism.

There’s something off about the way a lot of progressive dudes talk about AOC and I can’t put my finger on it but it looks like this: https://t.co/xFwnzgwh5R

Solid take guys, it’s probably not her extraordinary ignorance, defense of horrific ideas, and bevy of media defenders https://t.co/w6TunuSgO4

AOC is the perfect person to cover for Republicans. She constantly makes a fool of herself while Democrats have had no choice but to back everything she’s said and done because she’s become so powerful. In many ways, AOC is becoming the new face of their party. It’s amazing. https://t.co/MksokBCMzX

I don’t think that’s it. It most likely is the number of miscues and blunders she has on a weekly basis.
