If people haven’t figured out that AOC is a political hack, I am not sure what will change their minds. Maybe this video? Channeling her inner Hillary Clinton circa 2007, AOC got in front of a black audience at a recent speaking appearance for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and went full preacher mode, replete with the drawl, twang, and unmistakable cadence of someone decidedly not New York Puertorican.
There are no words. Just watch:
My favorite version of AOC is the black southern Baptist preacher version.
It's like an initiation into the Democrat establishment when they invoke the preacher twang. pic.twitter.com/KBZwXJvj1e

I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work. There is nothing wrong with being a working person in the United States of America. And there is everything dignified about it.
Amazingly, after suffering through thirty seconds of this drivel it’s hard to tell what’s worse: Her horrible impression of a black baptist minister or the ideas she presented. Who ever said working retail or bartending or preparing food was beneath someone’s station? To be clear, we only make fun of AOC’s bartending experience because she’s AOC, not because there’s something inherently wrong with being a bartender.
If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that those jobs are the cornerstone of society. It’s the 535 congressional seats we could do without.
There’s also a fundamentally flawed logic here, considering AOC helped put the kibosh on Amazon’s plan to remake her district with a huge facility. So much for supporting the working class.
AOC’s latest appropriation of culture and language comes on the heels of another embarrassing performance in front of her own constituents. Getting heckled mercilessly, the Democrat diva danced like a child before getting back on the mic and embodying some kind Latin King.
AOC should get into stand up comedy. She does an excellent Rosie Perez impersonation and it would be lateral transition from he current job.

And as mentioned, this episode harkens all to easily to the outlandish performance by perennial presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2007, who was competing for the black vote against Barack Obama in the Democrat primaries. That led to this moment:
I don’t feel no ways tired. I’ve come too far. From where I started from, nobody told me that the road would be easy. I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me.
Just yikes. Yikes all around for this pandering. We should rightly call this nonsense out, because it’s pure fakery and it’s beyond condescending to anyone that hears it. (Do research groups poll that this actually works?)
In any event, as awful as it is, it would also be hilarious if Donald Trump tried it out, just for fun. His approach “what do you have to lose?” makes a lot more sense and appeals to voters’ brains instead of dehumanizing them into a caricature, but it’d be fascinating to see leftists explode when the Donald merely replicated what Hillary and AOC have now done, which is put on a costume of a black preacher and embarrass everyone involved.
Can we make that happen, Donald?
