Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was once hailed as the “future” of the Democratic Party. But during her two years in Congress, she has done little besides humiliate herself and infuriate her colleagues. With the Democratic National Convention coming up, many liberals were given chances to speak. But this is what they offered AOC.
I know, you’re probably not going to be watching the Democratic National Convention. Why would you? Why waste days of your life to watch a bunch of entitled hypocrites tell you you’re what’s wrong with America? The Democrat’s platform is weak. They have no vision for this country. Their only strategy is to lockdown states and let rioters loose.
What’s even more incredible is that most of their “star” speakers at this year’s convention are a whos-who of failed presidential candidates. The most notable names are liberals who didn’t have what it takes to make it to the White House. They even have a turncoat Republican presidential failure! Gee, these guys really love losers!
But one person you won’t be hearing a lot from is someone that has given the party no end of grief. It appears leftists are outraged by the snub, including the woman herself.
The Democrat Party is giving Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) 60 seconds to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, triggering the far-left.
“Ocasio-Cortez will be given just 60 seconds to deliver a pre-recorded message at the Democratic National Convention next week,” The New York Post reported. “The party’s progressive firebrand has been afforded the limited role while Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, will get to deliver live, virtual speeches at the coronavirus-revamped event.”
The news caused many on the far-left to lose their minds on social media, decrying the Democrat Party as “arrogant scumbags.”

Wow! Only sixty seconds? That’s a true slap in the face. I guess I’m not the only person who can’t stand AOC’s shrill, harpy-life voice.
Far-left Democrats were outraged that their poster child would be snubbed in such a fashion. Sixty seconds is worse than not speaking at all. That’s like when an actor gets the “leave the stage” music at the Oscars. The Democrats are saying, “We really don’t want to hear from you, Alex.”
They have good reason to feel that way. AOC has not been a winner for the Democratic Party. Her Green New Deal was lampooned by critics from both parties. She has done nothing to improve her New York district. In fact, thanks to her, New York lost a billion-dollar deal with Amazon that would have brought thousands of jobs to the city.
It’s like AOC is trying to make life worse for Americans. I have a feeling that has been her agenda from Day One.
Democrats are in a bad spot. They seem to think the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are a “moderate” pair that can steal votes away from Donald Trump. But Biden promises to be the most far-left president in our history and Harris has the most leftist voting record in the Senate. Only far-left voters would be interested in them. And yet far-left voters don’t seem all that impressed. Now, they are ticked off because their socialist darling won’t be speaking long at the convention.
How many more bad decisions will the Democrats make this year? Let’s see, the impeached Trump for no reason, they tore up his SOTU speech, they ignored COVID for months, they locked down states and punished Americans, they let rioters burn down cities, they promised to abolish the police, and now they are snubbing their own supporters.
I have a feeling they are going to be very upset on November 3.
