Univision anchor Jorge Ramos shields Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) from her remarks comparing immigrant detention centers to Nazi concentration camps, in what is his most recent and most blatant instance of AOC fandom. If you thought that last week’s effusive praise of AOC’s appearance on ABC’s This Week was the apex of media cheerleading then you, dear reader, thought wrong.
Washington Post economic editorial writer Charles Lane called out proponents of socialism citing Nordic countries as a “model” for the kind of socialism they want to see replicated by America. Because, while they are “success stories,” they aren’t really the socialist utopias claimed by liberal presidential candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-VT). Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY), has also claimed her policies “resemble” these countries.
Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to gush over U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in direct conflict with the persona he has purportedly built over the past few years (the Trump years, if you will) of being a proponent and defender of the kind of journalism that must, in order to be pure, remain in direct opposition to power.
When the left conducts polls, it’s not surprising to see how they can manipulate questions to obtain their desired results. Atlantic staff writer Robinson Meyer on June 21 gushed how the Democratic Party has “become more interested” in pushing forward the Green New Deal (GND) advocated by Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). He brought up how a carbon tax was apparently no longer “climate policy’s hottest plan.”
In the wake of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex’s disgusting use of concentration camps imagery to attack ICE and Border Patrol, members of the liberal media, most notably CNN’s Brian Stelter, Andrew Kaczynski, Chris Cuomo, and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, rushed to defend her and spin the comments. But during Wednesday’s MTP Daily, NBC political director Chuck Todd put his foot down and stood above his colleagues as he called out Ocasio-Cortez and gave her a lesson on the Holocaust.
Joy Behar defended Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on The View Wednesday, after the Democrat called ICE detention centers, “concentration camps.” Behar stood out from the rest of the hosts in agreeing with Ocasio-Cortez’s loaded assessment of President Trump's immigration policies, even suggesting that America was on the way to its own Holocaust.
Freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a darling of the liberal media because of her young age and unabashed promotion of socialism. They celebrated her ludicrous Green New Deal while ignoring her many campaign finance violations and ethics questions. Now, during Sunday’s Good Morning America and This Week, ABC chief White House correspondent Jon Karl hailed the influence the Congresswoman could have over the 2020 Democratic primary process and perhaps “play kingmaker” with her endorsement.
Since the Memorial Day controversy in Fresno when the Grizzlies minor league baseball team showed a video depicting Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (shown speaking at the 2019 Women's Rights March in New York) as an "enemy of freedom," the Fresno Bee has published multiple stories on the controversy which conveniently skipped right over the socialist firebrand's ideas for eroding many of the feedoms that Americans have long enjoyed.
Democratic presidential front-runner, former Vice President Joe Biden gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal a big bear hug, with the release of his 22-page climate plan June 4. The Atlantic called it a “mini green new deal” and Biden claimed it will create around 10 million jobs while reducing U.S. net-emissions to zero by 2050. Sure. Business leaders have a very different opinion about the economic impact of a Green New Deal.
There was a time a few years ago, after Mike Wise left the paper, that I feared The Washington Post Sports section would suffer from a want of condescending gasbags. At an organ like the Post (motto: Democracy Gets Dopey Around Dusk) a writer’s pomposity is nearly as important as his ability to regurgitate the party line.
LAS VENTAS, MADRID — I am supposedly on holiday in Madrid. I take a break from politics, from public policy, from culture, and take in life in the country. In Spain that means the bullfight. Las Ventas is the major league in Spanish bullfighting, and I am not disappointed in what I see. These are fine bullfighters and ferocious bulls, though I wish Spaniards would give more consideration to the safety of the bulls. This evening, I saw six bulls slain and two bulls pull up lame. At least those lame bulls did not taste the sword.
During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
