How Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) Continues to Manipulate the Right – The Right Still Doesn’t Get It
Anyone on the right that doesn’t understand that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is a master troll – in the mold of President Trump, are in for a rude awakening when she increases her political capital and takes over the narrative of the left and the Democratic Party.
Predictably, the Ocasio-Cortez watchers and commentators on the right blasted the silly ‘New Green Deal’ bill introduced by AOC, playing into her hand as she garners an increasing amount of attention and recognition from the general public and the Democratic base.
Of course the so-called ‘New Green Deal’ is ridiculous and outrageous. In my opinion it was purposely crafted to be that way in order to attract enormous attention.
I could do what everyone else does and point out the evil and unsustainable aspects of all of her proposals, but that would give credence to what she wants, providing legitimacy to her ideas in general. The unspoken thought is they just need to be tweaked some to be feasible. That’s part of her short-term strategy.
The most important thing to understand about Ocasio-Cortez is that she’s positioning herself not only to guide the narrative of the left, but to eventually take a run at the presidency in the years ahead. Her first step is to gain the attention of the general population, and from there communicate her agenda in a way that hides what it really is.
The bottom line is Ocasio-Cortez nothing more than a globalist that is revisiting the lies about global warming and climate change, wanting to use them to create a world government that places the U.S. under its control. Ultimately, it would lead to brutal suppression and persecution for Christians in the U.S.
All of us know this goofy deal isn’t going to pass in the near future, but Ocasio-Cortez is playing the long game here, pulling the Democratic Party further left into radical socialist territory.
Saying the outrageous things is a way she can troll the media on the right, and individuals on social media, to continue to share her ideas and thoughts. This will further cement her position as leader of the left over time. From there she will continue to spread here socialist agenda to the American people and the world from a larger platform and base.
While most people haven’t and won’t do it, the best thing to do would have been to ignore her.
But with the media outlets of the right looking for ways to increase traffic and eyeballs, they are creating the leftist monster that could eventually become their undoing if she manages to convince the American people her “brand” of socialism is different than that which has failed every time it was tried in history.
Yes, she’s seemingly ignorant and stupid in regard to understanding the consequences of her policies, but to think she’s dumb in regard to knowing how to attract attention to herself with her effective trolling, is to not understand what drives the news cycle in the world today.
This doesn’t mean she’ll win over time, but it does mean she played her fiddle and the right, overall, has danced to her tune. It could have been stopped by generally ignoring her and moderating the amount of attention she received.
