AOC On House Floor: ‘He Called Me, And I Quote, A Fu**ing B**ch’
Democrats and the unhinged left have defiled the political discourse to the point where cursing has become a sign of street cred to a party that degenerates on a daily basis.
On Thursday, in a display that not long ago would have merited an official censure, the hot-headed, thin-skinned socialist Twitter diva Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unleashed the dreaded F-bomb while the lower chamber was in session.
AOC’s R-rated outburst was in response to Florida Republican Ted Yoho who has been vilified by the media for losing his cool with the New York ignoramus who he confronted outside of the Capitol and muttered “f**king bitch,” to the “future” of the Democratic party.
Rep. Yoho’s attempt to take the high road by apologizing to Ocasio-Cortez instead made him into a sad spectacle when the former bartender and vicious demagogue refused to accept his apology and instead threw a profane temper tantrum for the cameras.
Rep Yoho: “Having been married for 45 years with two daughters, I’m very cognizant of my language. Offensive name-calling words attributed to me by the press were never spoken to my colleague, and if they were construed that way, I apologize for their misunderstanding. I cannot apologize for my passion, for loving my God, my family and my country,”
Rep. AOC: “In front of reporters, Representative Yoho called me, and I quote, ‘a f**king bitch,’” AOC said on the House floor.
“These are the words that Representative Yoho levied against a Congresswoman.
AOC went on to imply that Yoho’s actions demonstrate to the world how powerful (white) men can be verbally aggressive towards women.
“You can have daughters and accost women without remorse,” she said.
“You can be married, and accost women.”
WARNING: CONTAINS PROFANITY Representative @AOC repeated an accusation that her Republican colleague Ted Yoho used a profane gender-based slur toward her earlier this week in an interaction on the Capitol steps https://t.co/6FvPnA4Bpi pic.twitter.com/rrwGsN6Int— Reuters (@Reuters) July 23, 2020
The hapless Yoho should have known better and blundered into a trap where he was torn to shreds by AOC and her fellow Squad members who walked off of the House floor with his ass in their briefcases.
Like the Twitter hate mob, the worst mistake that can ever be made is apologizing which is like buckets of bloody chum in the water for the sharks.
Via The Hill, “Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats blast GOP on House floor for ‘culture’ of sexism”:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday accused a Republican colleague of perpetuating a “culture” of sexism on Capitol Hill, using an unusual speech on the House floor to denounce Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) following their tense encounter at the Capitol three days before.
“This issue is not about one incident. It is cultural,” she said. “It is a culture of … impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women, and an entire structure of power that supports that.”
Ocasio-Cortez, a liberal firebrand and social media sensation, has been railing against Yoho over the last 48 hours, using Twitter to condemn his conduct during their tense confrontation over anti-crime policies Monday.
She said that she was prepared to let the episode go, before Yoho took to the floor Wednesday morning to offer an apology — a speech that Democrats widely panned as insincere.
“And that I could not let go,” she said.
House Democratic leaders took the rare step of allowing Ocasio-Cortez a full hour to make her case on the chamber floor. She used about 10 minutes of that window, before ceding the podium to a number of other Democrats, who urged Yoho to offer “a real apology,” in the words of Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.).
“It’s not expected that everyone in this chamber agrees with each other,” Chu said. “It is expected, however, that we treat each other with dignity and respect.”
One by one, Democrats male and female took to the floor to warn against both the acceptance of sexism at the highest levels of power, and an erosion of civility across Congress and the nation at large.
“We are not on the House floor today because of just one callous incident,” said Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.). “Unfortunately, what brings us to this moment are the structural and cultural conditions and, yes, the very men that have normalized the marginalization of women — and specifically women of color — since this nation’s very inception.”
Whether Congressman Yoho’s blunder which violated the golden rule of politics to “never give your enemy the knife that they will use to cut your throat with” will end his political career has yet to be seen but it was a sacrificial castration albeit a bloodless one.
While President Trump would suffer such a lack of judgment as Yoho who should have known that his potty-mouthed remarks would become a media feeding frenzy, he sure as hell does not apologize to the grandstanding crybabies of the Democratic party - nor should anyone else.
As for AOC, with every outburst and the slobbering media coverage that she receives, the more powerful that she becomes.
