In order to successfully play the role of the victim, you need a villain.
After all, if nobody is attacking you, you’re not a victim.
So if there is nobody attacking you, you just create straw men.
And that pretty much sums up Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
You have to hand it to Ocasio-Cortez. She is the Queen of creating villainous straw men out of thin air.
The other day, some anonymous geebo on Twitter posted a video of a college-age Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing – ostensibly to ridicule her for being a “clueless nitwit.”
This anonymous nobody thought folks would retweet the tweet in order to mock and attack Ocasio-Cortez.
But from the countless responses I saw from fellow conservatives, nobody gave him (or her?) the desired response.
Of course it's stupid to attack her over dancing and of course I'm not doing that. The boomer obsession with her is just weird.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) January 4, 2019
So what did this anonymous Twitter geebo do when he didn’t get the response he expected? Well, not only did he delete the tweet, but also his entire Twitter account.
Despite the fact that nobody joined the single-account pile-on (can you have a pile-on with one guy?), Ocasio-Cortez claimed (without evidence) that the GOP was attacking her over this video.
Who in the GOP?
Well, nobody I saw. And certainly not any elected Republican.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to have straw men to battle.
Because without them, she can’t keep her army of Twitter followers rallying to her side to defend her.
Honestly, the lengths this chick goes to be a victim is mind-boggling.
And rather than a Trump-like headline like, “Ocasio-Cortez, without evidence, claims GOP are attacking her over decade-old video,” the media lapped it up like dogs at a water bowl.
The establishment media promised us: “We will hold the powerful accountable.”— Benny (@bennyjohnson) January 5, 2019
“Democracy Dies In Darkness,” they screamed.
Yet, when an obviously manufactured lie is propagated by the “new Obama” – watch what happens: they spoon feed the lie uncritically to readers.
Benny took the time to provide screen caps of some of the headlines from the news media.
Here are just a few:

“Attempt to shame” from one anonymous troll on Twitter who has already deleted the account in question.
Yeah, it’s a big GOP pile-on.

Again, a “smear” — from some random nobody that was roundly mocked (by Conservatives) for posting it.
Good grief. The media is happy to take Alexandria’s straw men at face value. Just like they did with Obama.
No one in the GOP thought your video was "scandalous."— Benny (@bennyjohnson) January 5, 2019
No one in the GOP thinks "women dancing" is scandalous.
This is an entirely media-driven manufactured outrage.
Modern Left playbook:
1. Create an imaginary monster
2. Slay the imaginary monster
3. Claim victory
Without straw men to battle, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just might have to defend her dangerous, nonsensical and economically crippling socialist agenda.
And we can’t have that, now can we?
So instead, Ocasio-Cortez creates out of whole cloth this supposed “GOP attack” in order to once again cast herself in the role of the victim.
No one thinks this is scandalous. Dance away (was actually pretty good).— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) January 4, 2019
What is scandalous is increasing income taxes to 70%. It’s wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government.
Dancing’s great, but ideas matter more. https://t.co/8RIShEJjAL
Here’s Paul Joseph Watson’s video on the subject. Naturally, he nails it.
