When I saw Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trending on Twitter, I wondered what trap she or her allies had set for Republicans. She’s getting getting pretty good at giving them bait to go after that has nothing to do with her political ideologies. True to form, it seemed the focus on her was now a video she and friends made in college that showed her dancing.
Trap laid. Bait worked. Prey ensnared.
Those who oppose her ideologically seem to talk more about her personality (which is likable), her energy (which is contagious and adds to her popularity), and her youth (which is refreshing). Every time they do, they add to her charm over her growing ranks of disciples.
The former Bernie Sanders acolyte now has acolytes of her own and they could end up making her a kingmaker in 2020.
Here’s the video:
It’s obviously a nod to the brat pack from the 1980s, specifically the dance scene in Breakfast Club. How her opponents thought it was a good idea to attack her on this is ridiculous.
There are many reasons – at least 32 trillion reasons with healthcare alone – to want to fight Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the political front. If the focus is on her likable personality, she and her far-left allies are going to win every time.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
