Mao-Xandria Ocommie-Cortez flipped out today because of some comments from Aaron Sorking the popular liberal entertainment writer.
All he said was that he likes the young Dems just voted in, but that they have to stop acting like young people:
I would like to remind everyone that the only political campaign Aaron Sorkin ever won was a fictional presidential election that he wrote. https://t.co/rmI72ieV35— Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) January 20, 2019
Seriously, that is not that bad a comment, but, just like children, they have to flip out:
And I think there's something deeper here: Sorkin really just wants gravitas, and he's okay if the gravitas in our elected officials comes with troubling compromise.— Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) January 20, 2019
We like @AOC and @Ilhan and these incoming Members because they prioritize substance over gravitas (appearance).
This guy/chick is trying to show SUPPORT for AOC, but she instead accuses everyone of SEXISM.
Let’s dig into “gravitas,” bc it’s an ambiguous word, selectively applied.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
Ever wonder how expression that’s feminine, working-class, queer, or poc isn’t deemed as having “gravitas,” but talking like an Aaron Sorkin character does? 🤔
Men have “gravitas,” women get “likeable.” https://t.co/0g9FNpExAl
This has deeper consequences, bc as we’ve seen w/ narratives advanced by the right, they have trouble recognizing intelligence in people they disagree with.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
This is what bias looks like: for some ppl, small mistakes mean they’re not “serious,” yet others are forgiven for worse.
If you notice, on the right they’ll flatly call people blanket terms, and even make things up. And I don’t mean trolls - I mean their biggest commentators + TV figures.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
This is different from criticizing a specific take you disagree with, or pointing out discriminatory patterns.
Just look at the marginal tax rate discussion.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
The right’s biggest strategy against my marginal tax rate proposal isn’t to argue against it - it‘s to lie about it, and imply that it’s a tax on all income, bc that helps their characterization of me as a “crazy/dumb“ Latina woman.
Uh, yeah except we mock EVERYONE who wants to tax people at an insane 70% rate, not just crazy latinas. You cretin.
This stuff infects some Democrats, too. Because in our overall discourse, nonviolent protest somehow gets deemed as not “civil,” yet stripping women’s rights or incarcerating children on the border doesn’t receive the same characterization.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
What’s up with that?🕵🏽♀️
Lastly, we wouldn’t need to talk about bathrooms at all if we acted like adults, washed our hands + minded our own business instead of trying to clock others.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 20, 2019
Going by track record, I’d feel safer in a bathroom w/ a trans woman than a powerful male executive any day of the week.
This girl barely qualifies to be an extra in a Gillette commercial, much less Congress. And didn’t she prove Sorkin’s point? Instead of ignoring the criticism or accepting it, she goes on a rant about how she can’t be questioned, even by democrats, who are clearly animated by sexism! LOL! Love it.
AND, ironically, she ended her rant by defending trans people after she was accusing a trans person of sexism when she tried to show her support!!! Amazing.
