“I Think a Lot of Them Can’t Hide Their Misogyny”: How Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez De-Fanged the Fox News Haters [Vanity Fair]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drives the right nuts.

And not just the right – also, moderate, older Democrats.

I love her. Moderate, older Democrats are destroying the party. Moderate, older Democrats cost the party the two houses of Congress, the judiciary, two thirds of the states, and they’re on their way to losing the courts. If the moderate, older Democrats have their way, the Democratic Party will be a powerless third party, sitting at the kiddie table with the Libertarians and the Greens. Time for change.

Shaming Ocasio-Cortez for her clothes is a classic ruse to deflect attention from real issues [Mark Frauenfelder/Boing Boing]


The right-wing disinfotainment machine is making a big push to shame New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for not dressing in rags as befits a person of modest means. The purpose of the smear campaign is to take attention away from the issues Ocasio-Cortez is dedicated to: Medicare for everyone, ending the student debt catastrophe, justice reform, ending global warming.
