I try resisting writing about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez because I truly believe she is a passing phase, an Omarosa, an Avenatti, a broken shard, a withering blade of grass, a fading flower, a passing shade, a dissipating cloud, a passing wind, flying dust, a fleeting dream, an accident that captures media attention for three months or even a year or two before fluttering out of sight, a fading echo replaced by a new belch.
She was elected by accident. She was not Donald Trump who “came from out of nowhere” and competed concertedly for months before the American public on a bold platform — often too bold and occasionally utterly unrealistic — of deporting ten million illegal aliens, building a Wall, taking on China in trade, taking on NATO in their payments, wiping out ISIS, moving America’s Israel embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing the entire city as Israel’s capital, implementing massive tax cuts, deregulating Obama himself, walking out of the Paris “Climate” Accord, nullifying the disastrous Iran Deal, ending the Obamacare mandate and as much of it as he could. In reality, Trump did not “come from out of nowhere.” Rather, everyone in American knew him as one of America’s most famous “private” citizens — a billionaire hotelier and renowned builder, a major TV personality, a glitteratus among the glitterati.
By contrast, Ocasio-Cortez came from nowhere and is en route to nowhere, with a brief vacation stop in somewhere. Amid all the Left Media’s breathless fascination with her, it is important to pause for the reality check that we need when bombarded with 24 hours of Mostly Fake News seven days a week:
(i) more than 40% of the population speak Spanish at home;
(iii) ethnic-racial composition 50% Hispanic, 11% Black, and 18% White.
It was a primary among Democrat voters whom Crowley helped brainwash, alongside Pelosi and Hillary, into thinking solely along the lines of Identity Politics. So of course the Puerto Rican beat the Old White Guy who had absolutely no connection to the community. The shock is:
Now the Left Media compare Hyphen to Trump: two people who “came from out of nowhere,” with “no idea about government,” who now are political personalities. The Big Lie.
Trump had been opining on political issues for decades. He had taken out newspaper ads on issues of the day. He spoke on issues on late-night talk shows. He was an accomplished man of great talent and some awful, terrible, shameful personal character flaws, and everyone knew who and what he is and what and whom we would be getting in the Oval office.
By contrast, no one ever had heard of Hyphen. She was a Nothing. Nada. Like the number of “F – – -”s she “gives,” a complete Zero. She came out of nowhere and got elected because she is a Puerto Rican who asked other Puerto Ricans in Spanish: “¿Quieres una hermana o un viejo pedo blanco?” (“Do you want a sister or an Old White Rectal Carbon-Dioxide Expeller?”)
Rather than Hyphen’s election being a harbinger of a socialist trend, Ocasio-Cortez’s victory actually paralleled the Brooklyn Democrat primary shocker of 1972 when House Judiciary Chairman Emanuel Celler — the longest serving Congressional representative in New York history, then in his fiftieth year in the House — lost his primary to 31-year-old Elizabeth Holtzman, who simply energetically knocked on doors and convinced the Jewish locals that their incumbent representative was uncaring, out of touch, and too busy making national policy in D.C. to bother campaigning for their vote. Celler had owned his Brooklyn Jewish district. He had been a hero fighting in Congress for Jews overseas during the Holocaust. But now it was decades later. He was old, very old. Holtzman was young, very young. She went around the district talking about Israel and stuff, and the local Jews figured: “Celler has been sitting on his laurels for a quarter century, but he has no connection anymore with us locals. All he cares about is his committee in Washington.” So Celler was bounced, and Liz Holtzman got elected. She made a bit of noise, eventually ran unsuccessfully for United States Senate, getting even fewer votes than then-racist bigot anti-Semite Al Sharpton— and Republican conservative Al D’Amato got elected past both of them.
Well, remember Liz Holtzman? That gives you an idea of how well you will remember Hyphen over time.
In Hyphen’s first Congressional weeks, the Left Media have fallen all over her. She gets onto Stephen Colbert, a Leftist anti-Trump night show that no longer reaches the broad-based American audience of a David Letterman but that targets only those MSNBC viewers whose Attention Deficit Disorder leaves them unable to remain focused on a thirty-minute discussion. She gets onto 60 Minutes. And every time she speaks for more than ten minutes or seems to cogitate for more than 140 characters, she reveals her utterly abysmal ignorance. In this week’s latest moronic comments, two stand out:
 We now are in the last twelve years of planet Earth unless we adopt her Green Economy and stop the utter destruction that lies before us.
 This struggle against Climate Change is our World War II.
Someday people will ask: “How did this idiot get air time?”
The only way we would be in the last twelve years of Planet Earth would be if Obama’s and Kerry’s Iran Deal had been allowed to continue. Under it, Iran would have been nuclear-attack ready in fewer than ten years. Hopefully, we would be ready to defend when the Mullahs would send their nuclear-fitted ICBMs at the Puerto Ricans of Queens. But maybe not. Or perhaps if Obama and Kerry had been able to extend their legacy that saw ISIS grow from a Junior Varsity to a significant international threat, even as Obama and Kerry had set in place the foundation for ISIS terrorists to enter our country through our porous southern border.
But the voters of the Rust Belt — Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin — came through in the eleventh hour and saved the Republic. The Obama and Kerry legacy were rejected before they even became… uh, legacized? Hillary was sent back home to work on her yoga lotus position, having been denied the POTUS position. And the earth continues as the world turns.
We are not in Planet Earth’s last twelve years unless Messianic times are at hand. And we are not in the equivalent of World War II. During World War II, tens of millions of brave soldiers, and of innocent civilians caught in between, were murdered or killed in the face of Hitler’s Nazism, Stalin’s Communism, and Japan’s Imperialism. The brave died invading Normandy, sitting defiantly in bomb shelters in London, fighting in Market Garden and Hürtgen Forest, defending Midway and New Guinea, taking Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. They fought Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese myth of the Divine Emperor. Germans put Roma (“Gypsies”), Catholics, Gays, and — mostly — Jews into gas chambers and ovens. Stalin murdered millions of his own in the Ukraine, and he did the same to the Germans. In all, between 55 million and 80 million died.
Can Hyphen even count that high?
When Ocasio-Cortez speaks, she reflects not only an element of Personal Stupid, but she also reflects a generation of college graduates who literally do not know what World War II was, what Hitler and Stalin were, what mass genocide and Golodomor and Holocaust are. That was part of the bounty of White Male Privilege.
Can we be surprised that she is so historically ignorant? Look at her name: Ocasio-Cortez. Have you ever met a Jew named “Hymie Schwartz-Hitler”? “Shmulie Goldstein-Eichmann”? Have you ever met an Armenian named “Abajian-Ataturk”? How in the world does a Hispanic person end up with a surname that includes “Cortez”? In a world where the great Christopher Columbus is defamed as a “Conqueror,” Hernán Cortéz truly was a blood-soaked murderer. He had a city hacked to death and mass-murdered during the Cholula Massacre. He took the vanquished as slaves, gave conquered women to his men as gifts. The entire conquest of the Aztecs was mercilessly bloody.
And she bears his name. Hyphen Cortez. And now, bearing the Conqueror’s name, she sets out to lead her minions in surviving the Second World War II.
