This poor sap.
Sometimes it’s better just to take the “L,” and walk away.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ain’t wired that way.
After her “I talk like a black person whenever I’m fired up” excuse fell flat on its face, Alexandria decided to switch gears.
Clearly she watched Don Lemon defend her fake black accent on CNN Friday night.
“We’re talking about code-switching. I do it, we all do it. There is a difference between mocking someone and knowing your audience.” — @DonLemon— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) April 6, 2019

Because yesterday, Alexandria was all “Step off! I was code-switching! Yeah, yeah. That’s the ticket! I was code-switching!”
Code-switching is referenced a lot in pop culture. It was a big element in a major film last year: “Sorry To Bother You.”— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 7, 2019
If you’re confused about how code-switching is a cultural reality for people of color & communities, read about it.

We see the perceived “costs” to not code-switching all the time.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 7, 2019
Can’t tell you how many young people in our community don’t have the confidence they should bc they didn’t grow up learning secondary speech.
Their talents get stifled by “respectability,” despite enormous gifts.
The good news is that we can improve this easily w/ honest reflection.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 7, 2019
For ex, are certain hairstyles discouraged in your workplace?Why?
Can you think of someone who didn’t advance bc of how they spoke? Why?
Examine what’s deemed “unprofessional” around you & adapt it to 2019.
Or, a shorter version: “Um, like, you know that black accent?! I, like, you know, meant to do that.”
Or, the slighter longer short version: “I know I said I get that way when I’m, like, all fired up, or whatever. But now that you have, you know, audio proving I, like, never did that before, like, what I meant to say was, you know, ‘I, like, meant to do that! It’s code-switching, or whatever! Like adapt to 2019!”
Honey, put the shovel down.
There may be a simpler explanation for why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to morph into a AME preacher, as Paul Joseph Watson reminded us Friday night:
Worth re-visiting in light of today’s AOC performance.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 5, 2019
A Yale study found that liberals deliberately dumb down their vocabulary when speaking to black people in comparison to conservatives who don’t. pic.twitter.com/8nouEmX5Xj
Though, I’m hoping she doesn’t put the shovel down. Because watching this thin-skinned girl scramble for excuses over pandering to black people by using a phony black accent is all manner of entertaining.
Speaking of Paul Joseph Watson: He plans to do a video on Butterfly McYaaas-Queen soon.
After her performance today, it’s high time for me to devote a video to AOC. Best memes and dumbest statements in this thread please. https://t.co/TzxbpgT9eW— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 5, 2019
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for that video to drop.
The video dropped!
