Purity Tests, Fascism And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Senator Bernie Sanders held a huge campaign rally at Venice Beach, California. In addition to Harvard Divinity Professor Cornel West, one of the speakers was freshman Congresswoman and social media star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC vigorously defended purity tests and warned that America was becoming fascist. Having a sense of irony is not a significant strength for AOC.

Purity tests became a thing again because of the dust-up between Senator Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg during the last Democrap debate. Pete had held a fundraiser in a wine cave and Warren gave him a mighty thwap. Mayor Pete responded that the problem with purity tests was that often the accuser couldn’t pass the test either. Nina wrote up the debate and you can read it here.

That brings us to AOC and her remarks at the rally for Bernie Sanders 2020 run for the Democrat Presidential candidate. From the New York Post:

“For anyone who accuses us for instituting purity tests — it’s called having values,” the freshman representative said at a Bernie Sanders rally. “It’s called giving a damn. It’s called having standards for your conduct to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people.”

Here is the video, including the AOC introduction by Divinity Professor (?????) West:

“Are you ready for the revolution?” No, Sandy, thank you. “Justice is what love looks like in public.” What in the name of Sweet Meteor of Death does that even mean? I know that Sandy Cortez goes on to explain, but that doesn’t make any sense either.

“Establishing a loving society in the United States of America” is not “an irrational, overly feeling, sympathetic statement,” she said. Rather, it’s the pursuit of “an advanced society.” And an advanced society, Ocasio-Cortez said, guarantees healthcare and tuition-free college and trade schools, among other benefits.

“What we are living in now is not an advanced society,” she said.

These people (Sanders, West, and Ocasio-Cortez) retch up a bunch of soft-focus words and the mush-headed liberal morons lap it up. And, Miss Occasional Cortex, find me a better society and I will donate $1.00 to paying off the debt for your worthless degree. I feel safe that I will never have to pay off.

Even the educated but ignorant Jessica Tarlov knows that purity tests are for losers. That’s actually the title for her article, “Political purity tests are for losers”. In it she says:

Getting anyone elected takes a village, but this is especially true for Democrats in ruby red states such as Louisiana. Beyond the work, it takes an important shift in Democratic politics.

Purity tests have got to go.

That’s genius level analysis from Tarlov.

In addition to praising purity tests and the pursuit of an advanced society, the former Queens bartender (AOC) claimed that America is evolving into a fascist society. I am not sure the poor woman even knows what that means. I have read George Orwell’s “What is Fascism?” a couple times over the last thirty years. He never gives a satisfactory answer. But what does AOC mean? Does she mean an ultra-nationalist, right wing authoritarian dictatorship? Does she mean a totalitarian one party state? Does she mean everyone believing the same thing?

Ah, that would require a purity test. After the revolution that AOC wants, one would be tested to make sure that all of one’s beliefs and values match exactly with the current revolutionary thought. If one passed the test, one would be permitted into this advanced society. One would then benefit from the free health care and free education. If one were wealthy and wanted to hold a fundraiser for your favored candidate in a wine cave with crystal chandeliers and expensive wines, would one be shunned, jailed or worse?

AOC can’t give you an answer. She couldn’t even get a job in the wine cave pouring wine.

    AOC goes to the beach, and we don’t get bikini photos? Humbug.

    • Hate_me says:

      Ew.

      I mean, compared to most of her colleagues, she’s not ugly… but I wouldn’t say she’s particularly attractive. Of all the photos of young women on the internet, you want to look at hers?

  • Joe in PNG says:

    Maybe she and Uncle Bernie could start an official government Department of Love.

    You know, because we don’t use ‘ministry’ for official government departments.

    Senator Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren
    That’s Fauxcahontas.

    it’s called having values
    Well, yes. Even a stopped clock, and all that.

    to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people
    Hah! Says the woman backing the millionaire who is also backed by George Soros.
    Wait, what was that about “values”…?

    “Justice is what love looks like in public.”
    Ummm, no. “PDA” is what love looks like in public. Or “dropping a 10er in the bell-ringer’s bucket” is what love looks like in public. Or “stopping to help that guy change his tire in the snow and ice” is what love looks like in public. Justice is JUSTICE. And what you call “justice” is no such thing.
    Obligatory.

    “What we are living in now is not an advanced society,”
    Here’s that standard leftist progressive trope that makes the perfect the enemy of the good.
    Anyone who thinks we don’t live in an advanced society is an ignoramus. Or they’re so deluded with ideas of heaven on earth that they’re no damned use except perhaps as a speed bump or a boat bumper.

    I am not sure the poor woman even knows what that means.
    *points to the link above*
    There’s so many things she knows that just aren’t so.

    an ultra-nationalist, right wing
    Well, fascists are left-wing….
    (And, yes, they are incredibly self-unaware. *smh*)

    GWB is right. Fascism is Leftist. Fascism allows private ownership of business but everything has to filter through the government. Fascism was in competition with Communism to take over the world after WWI.
    AOC’s last name is Ocasio, her father’s last name. Her mother’s last name is Cortez. She’s just adopted this semiLatino thing.
    Other than that, she is so ignorant of so much! Makes it obvious BOSTON University is not worth the price. She learned nothing, not even from her real job!

  • Dave says:

    People that think that having moral standards is a ‘purity test’ and ‘for losers’ is someone who’s let cynicism overwhelm their world view. How sad.

    The fact you don’t understand what AOC is saying says more about you, than it does her.

  • MJ says:

    @Dave…..lololol. Occluded Cortex doesn’t understand what she’s saying. That’s her problem, and evidently neither do you.
