By now it is well understood just how House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez operates.
The precocious progressive is fueled by attention, steered by the far-left, and has no real regard for guardrails, often careening off the hyperbolic side of any argument for the sake of gathering more spotlight for herself.
Her latest attempt at interjecting herself into the national narrative is predictably failing.
Controversial Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took aim at Congress and a patriarchal society in a social-media rant in the wake of the shooting at a Texas school that left 21 people dead.
“There’s so many different areas and issues where all of us agree – if not all, an overwhelming amount of us agree. And Congress still can’t get their s*** together,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a nearly hour-long video posted on her Instagram account.
But then came the nonsense…
Ocasio-Cortez also took aim at toxic masculinity that she said glorified aspects such as guns and violence. She told people to “check” the men in their life.
“It just feels like there’s very few role models and examples of people talking about this in healthy ways,” she said. “And it’s a big problem because there are a lot of crises.”
Democrats are tripping over themselves after the Uvalde shooting, hoping to ride the wave of national sorrow into an advantageous position for the 2022 midterms.
