When Democrats in New York elected Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the House of Representatives in November, it clearly short circuited a lot of conservatives’ brains…and now they dog her every social media post, parsing it for mistakes they can pounce on, which they do, only to have their asses kicked by their intended victim, and I’m here for allllllllllll of it.

Ocasio-Cortez is a devout and unabashed “democratic socialist,”and we all know that the word socialist triggers conservatives almost as much as the words “Your religion doesn’t give you the right to tell me how to live my life,” or, “historical data shows that tax cuts for the wealthy do not ever trickle down to the plebs,” or “gender is a social construct.” Anyone who thought that a female, attractive, intelligent congressperson who also happens to own the word “socialist” as a descriptor wouldn’t send America’s right-wing into fits of giddy stupidity and other tropes meant to conflate democratic socialism with despotic communism wasn’t paying attention to Republicans for the last 50 or 60 years.

Just look at the desperation of these pieces of shit, demonstrated in this OH SO HILARIOUS video Tucker Carlson’s propaganda outlet The Daily Caller made, mocking Alexandria for, I guess, being young and having fun? Oh boy, you sure nailed her, Daily Caller! How dare she have fun and dance?! What a commie!

The people attacking Cortez are getting their asses kicked…by Cortez herself…hard…and often.

They wait with bated breath for her every tweet, and they pounce on every typo or thought she has that may need a little more nuance and explanation than 280 characters can afford. Almost always though, she not only has a way to clapback at her idiotic critics, Alexandria usually demolishes her attacker with social media savvy Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee wish they had. In fact, speaking of Huckabee, check out this ass whooping he got. Huckabee thought he was going schooling a little girl on climate change, and instead he got a Cortez-shaped boot up his ass.

“Leave the false statements to Sarah Huckabee. She’s much better at it.” Savageness confirmed.

Or there’s this one, when the “Reagan Battalion” (LOL at that name forever) tried to school Cortez because they thought she’d made a math mistake in discussing accounting errors made by the Pentagon. Cortez was so good at schooling them, Reagan Battalion deleted their tweet, hence her follow up about “receipts.”

Republicans are simply not ready for a young, intelligent, beautiful progressive they not only have no chance with in the sack, but who is unapologetic in her democratic socialism and far more savvy at social media than they’ll ever be. You can just about smell their feelings of inadequacy on every smarmy, finger-wagging tweet in which they try to own her. Alexandria simply absorbs their snark like Yoda absorbs Count Dooku’s lightning bolts, and then pushes them right back onto her mouth-breathing critics.

And here, to conclude, is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in her own strong social media game, explaining this situation far better than I could, in GIF form no less.

To put a button it — conservatives, particularly conservative men, fear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez because she’s gorgeous, more popular than they’ll ever be, and because they can’t beat her in a debate. Here’s hoping they never stop believing they can though; I love unintentional comedy as much as I love the on-purpose kind.
