It really is a sight to behold.
Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal learned the hard way that you do not cross the Wicked Witch of Twitter.
Their opinion page published a column titled “Ocasio-Cortez is an All-American Socialist.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “leads a generation of young people to take pride in their ignorance—of the laws of nature, of history, of the Constitution, of the eternal battle for freedom—and still succeed.” https://t.co/ygb7GiLNRD— WSJ Editorial Page (@WSJopinion) February 28, 2019
And when AOC spied that tweet, this Wicked Witch of Twitter did what she always does. She unleashed her flying monkeys.
She never directly addresses her critics. Instead, she quote-tweets the latest criticism and lets her army of rabid fans do the fighting for her.
I guess WSJ Editorial Page takes pride in their ignorance of our nation’s history of slavery, Jim Crow, & mass incarceration; willful doubt on the decades of science on climate change; targeting of indigenous peoples, and the classist, punitive agenda targeting working families. https://t.co/pT4hLhSZiX— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 28, 2019
The Wicked Witch of Twitter is a thin-skinned coward incapable of defending herself or, more importantly, her “ambitious” agenda.
But why should she even bother when she has a proxy army at the ready to do battle on her behalf?
Lately, however, more and more people are realizing how deftly the Wicked Witch of Twitter hides behind her sycophantic human shields.
I’m not one to get terribly conspiratorial, but take a look at this completely non-controversial headline, read the replies, and tell me there isn’t a coordinated social media effort to prop up AOC.— Adam Trahan (@AdamTrahan) February 28, 2019
If you don’t believe me, reply to an AOC tweet with “I disagree.” https://t.co/mxWCzRC7D1
You mean AOC’s flying monkeys? They’re her attack/debate minions. They free her up for more important things… softball interviews, tweeting conspiracy theories/complaints/insults/etc, mic time where she preaches at us (but does not debate anyone).— Saucy Patriot (@saucypatriot) February 28, 2019
They the absolute most unhinged twitter users I’ve ever seen, hands down— Adam Trahan (@AdamTrahan) February 28, 2019
And they are her human shields — the secret to her social media success. She never has to defend herself so long as she has her proxy army. It’s kinda passive/aggressive when you get right down to it. Plus a wee bit on the culty side.— Dianny 🇺🇸(@DiannyRants) February 28, 2019
The goal isn’t to engage people in debate or try and argue the merits of Alexandria’s “agenda.”
The goal is to shield her from ever having to defend her own radical positions.
And they love, love, LOVE to tell us how scared we are of her.
But who here is scared?
The people who try and engage AOC? Or the Wicked Witch of Twitter herself who hides behind her minions and avoids having to directly debate any of her critics?
Leaders, true leaders, can stand up for what they believe in. They’re not afraid to take the slings and arrows that come their way. And they never demand other people fight their battles for them.
The Wicked Witch of Twitter is not a leader.
She is a clay-footed social media despot who derives her power from the army of vicious trolls she employs.
They are there to protect her, to shield her and to shut down any and all criticism because AOC is incapable of making the case for her own “agenda.” And she’s utterly hamstrung by the existence of other points of view.
Her so-called “power” rests solely in her ability to play the victim. And she employs her flying monkeys as her white knights to rescue her from those meanie-meanie-jelly-beanie critics who dare to challenge her.
But this protective wall of flying monkeys has given the Wicked Witch of Twitter a false sense of invincibility.
Guarded like a precious Faberge egg on social media, AOC truly does believe that she is untouchable – to the point that now she is threatening to primary any Democrats who don’t fall in line behind her. Democrats who, by the way, only won their seats by appealing to the more moderate voters in their districts.
But the Wicked Witch of Twitter is not exactly savvy to the political realities of Representatives from moderate districts.
Her troll army have so successfully shielded her from the real world, that now the Wicked Witch of Twitter thinks every Democrat voter in every Congressional district thinks exactly like her and her slobbering, sycophantic social media fans.
This false sense of invincibility has given AOC an outsized, completely unrealistic sense of self-importance that will, if it remains unchecked, will lead to her undoing.
And if Nancy Pelosi doesn’t toss some cold water on the Wicked Witch of Twitter – and soon – AOC may very well drag the Democrat House majority down with her in 2020.
Don’t get me wrong. That makes me all manner of happy.
Nancy really did believe she could harness the power of the Wicked Witch of Twitter. But AOC cares only about AOC.
Nancy is making a grievous mistake.
And that might spell doom for her Speakership.
Who wouldn’t be happy at that?
Well, moderate Democrats aren’t happy at all.
Months ago, I debated former Democratic Hill colleagues of mine.— Bryan Dean Wright (@BryanDeanWright) March 1, 2019
They insisted AOC would be contained. Pelosi would control / use her.
Now? AOC has a hit list of moderates.
And she’s setting the Dem narrative.
Lesson: never let a fox into the henhouse.https://t.co/bkd6cJT3pL
An avowed Socialist who ran as a fake Democrat now has a list of legitimate Democrats she hopes to throw out of Congress.— Bryan Dean Wright (@BryanDeanWright) March 1, 2019
The kicker? Pelosi is taking her side.
The American left is rotting from the inside. https://t.co/UO0bWcvcED
I’m sorry, Bryan. I know that you want better for your party. But I have to admit, I’m enjoying the hell out of watching the Wicked Witch of Twitter burn the Democrat House to the ground.
