So, what is up with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The NY Representative is going to be part of the nomination team for one Bernard Sanders at the Democrat convention tonight. Think that’s weird? Well, she DID endorse him for president. But wait a minute…
Wasn’t AOC named to co-chair Joe Biden’s “climate task force”? If so, what’s she doing nominating his rival for the presidency?
In this weirdest of presidential campaigns, this one takes an even crazier turn when you think of it. Here you have a freshman representative become one of the most outspoken and probably influential members of her party in her first two years in office. She steers her party markedly to the left, bordering her ideas on socialism at the very least. She endorses another socialist for president and campaigns with him. Then he pulls out of the campaign, and she says she’s going to back Joe Biden.
But wait…there’s more!
In this ever-twisting crazy year, the convention is not only put on hold for a month, but it’s also actually moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to people’s dens and bedrooms. It’s become a “virtual convention”. Delegates are going to be at home, not in some big convention center. And the four-day event will feature speakers…and that’s pretty much it. You’ll probably be able to see it most nights on most cable news channels, as the speakers speak between 9pm and 11pm Eastern time. And, in the midst of the craziness, AOC will be one of several “team members” that are going to put Bernie Sanders’ name into nomination for the presidency. How’s that for loyalty to Joe Biden?
Democrats have actually gone over the edge with their weirdness this year. They say you should be wearing a mask in public, and have chastised the President because he held a rally in Oklahoma, and most of the people didn’t wear a mask. Yet, when push comes to shove, it’s ok if you don’t wear a mask if you’re protesting or burning down buildings or looting…unless you want to hide your face from the myriad of security cameras trying to figure out who’s ripping off the businesses in town.
Politicians have kowtowed to the far left groups of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Hell, the NBA forces it’s players to wear BLM warm-ups, and have painted BLM logo on the floors of their empty arenas. And I bet 90% of the athletes couldn’t tell you more than a cursory explanation of what Black Lives Matter is all about. They know they’re for it!
Meanwhile, those of us that still have brain cells alive and well are left shaking our heads. Politicians are backing rioters and looters, unless and until they realize that everyone is leaving their cities for safer climes, and their tax base is eroding to zero. Then they want the rioting to stop. Oh, they’ll defund the police, but by God, you’d better not screw with their taxes! And when crime goes through the roof, they’re hoping that these “community partners” will be there to help. They’ve become total idiots.
No… to answer the question on everyone’s mind. I am going to be too busy to watch anything going on with the Democrats at their convention this year. I think I have to wash my hair that night!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
