The hot takes on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ unhinged CCP Virus rant video yesterday were shockingly diverse for a video that was under two-minutes long. There were at least a dozen disparate angles from which conservatives on social media could attack as the freshman Congresswoman called on people to go on a “rent strike.” She wants to teach those dastardly landlords a lesson. Never mind that this is arguably the darkest non-wartime hour in our nation’s history. For Ocasio-Cortez, there’s no bad time to promote Marxist principles.
Two of my favorite perspectives came in a single quoted-retweet:
AOC is so irresponsible. She literally has no idea what she's talking about, can't form a sentence without using the word "organization" 17 times, and won't explain her point on why capitalism is bad because she doesn't know how to. https://t.co/AhP2cZdonk

That clip is getting most of the play on social media, and rightly so because it’s completely unhinged in both topic and presentation. We’ve grown accustomed over the last 14 months to AOC being unhinged, but this was one of her special moments when she detaches further from reality than normal.
But the clip that got my attention was, in my humble opinion, hyper-leftism encapsulated in just a couple of sentences. The beginning of the two+ minute clip is standard Democrat rhetoric about how President Trump didn’t make the right decisions, act quickly enough, or listen to scientists. One does not have to be a radical progressive to make those claims. Most Democrats repeat them simply because they’re emotion-driven accusations that are subjective and therefore require no evidence. But near the end, we get to the meat of the issue as she went after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis:
Here’s @AOC going on a rant about how Trump didn’t take coronavirus “seriously” and that people are dying because of him.

It’s apparently DeSantis’ fault that people were “packing” beaches and spreading the CCP Virus across the nation. And therein lies the biggest difference between a conservative and a radical progressive. Conservative see people going to the beach and either recognize them as living their lives and enjoying the virus-killing UV rays, or we see them as idiots. It all depends on how we perceive the risk of going out in public, and neither perspective is impeachable. But to an authoritarian like AOC, these poor people are all victims because government didn’t step in and mandate compliance. They have no personal responsibility for their actions in the eyes of leftists because we’re all incapable of making decisions on our own. We’re just fools who must be subjugated for our own good.
To AOC, the only way we’re able to survive in this world is by depending on government to do the thinking for us. This is why we need a conservative movement during and after the crisis. The left is coming for our rights.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
