Angry AOC Says Blue Texas Is Inevitable
Angry AOC Says Blue Texas Is Inevitable
AOC has gotten over COVID and is on the warpath and angry, y’all. On a recent campaign stop in Texas, she said turning The Lone Star State blue is “inevitable“. From the event in San Antonio:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a stop in Texas to endorse the campaigns of Jessica Cisneros and Greg Casar. I mean, she began her organizing career in Texas!
“Here’s what’s exciting about Jessica’s race and Greg’s race…is that if we flip Texas, we flip the country.Texas turning blue is inevitable. The only question is when. We are going to fight for a living wage, we are going to make sure we unionize the hell out of this state…and we’re going to make sure that not one dime is made exploitatively across any worker, especially the undocumented.”-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
What were some of the key points brought up by two women (Cisneros and AOC) donned in ugly pantsuits? I swear these blue women pick out the most hideous ensembles I have ever seen. I suppose we should be careful to criticize Notorious AOC and her political predictions or her ugly pantsuit, however. She may think it’s because we all must want to date her or sleep with her or something but I digress. They are fighting to flip Texas to blue on the platform of Medicare for all, unions and reproductive freedom (translation: abortion).
So, here she is. AOC predicting that Texas will go blue. AOC also predicted that the world was going to end in 12 years, remember that? We’re about three years into this prediction so, if Texas does go blue, we may be right on track with her premonition.
But in the times we live in, I am cautious to never say never. I mean, look at the hot mess we are in now with our so-called “leader” of the (still) free nation? But, if AOC did her homework, perhaps she should be cautious about making such statements on inevitability. Clearly, we know she did not do her economics homework back in the day because if she did math, she would realize that the Green New Deal was/is not an economically sound plan for America. On a side note let’s take a wild guess here. Did AOC fly down to Texas on a commercial aircraft this time? Did she buy that $7-dollar croissant?
What’s more glaring about AOC’s prediction, or should we say, her wishful thinking, is the voting trends of border towns such as McAllen, Texas in 2021:
The party was particularly buoyed by its performance in McAllen, a border city of 143,000 that is 85 percent Hispanic, where Javier Villalobos, a former chairman of the local Republican Party, defeated a candidate backed by local Democrats by 206 votes out of 9,282 cast.”-Reid J. Epstein, The New York Times
AOC had her theories in the past on remedying border surge as well. More blue policies. Inevitable for border towns to also go blue, right? According to this, Joe Biden won Hidalgo County, which includes McAllen, by 17 percentage points. Four years earlier, Hillary Clinton carried the county by 40 points. I would suggest that this would be an inevitable trend that may be creeping into the red as opposed to the blue oblivion but hey, I’m not the economics major nor a career organizer, nor in Congress for my stellar cerebral function.
She asked 10 of her friends how they were voting 8 of them said they are going to vote democrat, therefore her own polling shows 80% of people are going to vote democrat

If identity politics come into play, perhaps Texas cities would go “purple”. But at the border towns and in rural areas, there is a reason why Republicans won and why even a fair amount of Hispanics voted red and may continue to do so:
Republicans, by contrast, recognized that Hispanic South Texans share many of the same values as non-Hispanic white voters elsewhere in Texas and swept in with a pitch about defending gun rights, promoting the oil and gas industry, restricting abortion, and supporting law enforcement.”-Jack Herrera, Texas Monthly
Let’s also add into the mix the strong Catholic faith of many Hispanic communities-along the border and elsewhere in the state of Texas. They know that “reproductive freedom” translates to “limitless abortion for all”. They are Conservative by nature in this regard and, I am willing to bet, do not enjoy their intelligence being insulted by blue Texas throwing around this euphemism.
If anything, AOC underestimates Texans. And, she really underestimates the Hispanic population of which she claims to be a champion.
The only way Texas turns blue is from holding it's collective breath while she visits ..

AOC thinks Texas going blue is imperative, however…
If we lose Texas, it’s game over.”-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Oh, please, Dear Lord! Let it be “game over” for this dystopian nightmare! We’ll be watching and waiting. In the meantime, may God Bless Texas.
