Last week, Big Fur Hat posted the brief video clip of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez comparing a barrier on our southern border to the Berlin wall. His headline for the post caught my eye: “Cortez is so stupid she’s making me angry now – It’s no longer funny.”
There are two kinds of stupid.
Stupid-funny and stupid-dangerous.
And, as I wrote in the comments of Fur’s post:
Honestly, I stopped being amused by her before she was even sworn in. There’s stupid-funny and there’s stupid-dangerous. She graduated to stupid-dangerous when she started unleashing her flying monkeys on everyone who made the mildest criticism of her on Twitter. She knows full well that her followers will rabidly attack her “opponents” but she does it anyway. She gins up hatred with a song in her heart. That is fucking deranged.
Now, I realize that folks love to make “Boy AOC is so stupid” memes. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting at least a dozen of them every day. They’re all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, websites. Laughing at her stupidity has become a cottage industry.
Yes. She is deeply stupid.
But Fur is right. It is no longer a laughing matter.
Ocasio-Cortez is stupid-dangerous.
And her embrace of authoritarian language should concern us.
Her brand of politics is light on facts and long on fascism.
She wants to tell us all how much money we’re allowed to have.
Like, who made it your business?
She wants to destroy the very agricultural industry that has made it possible to feed the world. And on top of that, she wants to dictate what we’re allowed to eat.

Millennial Lenin is over here stating in the open that she doesn’t want people eating what they want in the privacy of their own homes and they are all just like yasqweenclapback!— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) February 23, 2019
“Millennial Lenin.” I like that. In fact, I like it so much, I’m changing the header on this image:
AOC went from stupid-funny to stupid-dangerous the moment she decided that being elected to serve as a citizen-legislator gave her far-reaching power to dictate every aspect of our lives.
This morning, the stupid-dangerous fool announced that she would be paying her staff a minimum of $52,000 a year.
Yes, she is very generous … with our money.
But note how she defends this use of taxpayer funds:
A lot of people commenting don’t know how Congressional salaries work.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 23, 2019
Each member is given a set amount that they disburse. GOP has refused to increase budgets in years to give hard-working staff a raise, which means people helping to run the country are getting paid $30k/year.
Did you catch that?
“People helping to run the country.”
Run the country.
In a Republic founded on self-government, she believes she and her staff run the country.
And not only do they “run the country,” they’re “in charge.”
Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 23, 2019
Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats. https://t.co/h3KSJhHqDN
You miniscule, meaningless peons shouting from the cheap seats! How dare you question AOC’s “ambitious, on-scale” Green New Deal! How dare you believe in self-government and liberty!
The arrogance is staggering.
And this kind of arrogance coupled with mind-numbing ignorance is not stupid-funny; it’s stupid-dangerous.
I said a while back that I find it rather ironic that Millennial Lenin here accuses President Trump of being an authoritarian when she herself really aspires to be just that.
Someone who truly believes in self-government and stands for “the people” would never seek to control every aspect of our lives.
But this is precisely what this stupid-dangerous fool wants to do.
And what makes her especially dangerous is how wildly popular she is.
She’s making fascism look cool.
And the idiotic drones who slobber over her every tweet and dutifully attack every one of her critics don’t seem to realize that they are embracing the very tyranny they accuse President Trump of seeking.
Even the way she wields her army of brownshirts exposes her for the dangerous crank that she is.
She uses them as human shields. They do her fighting for her. And, more importantly, they intimidate in order to make people afraid of confronting or criticizing her.
Lord knows it’s working on the news media.
But, fortunately for us, not everyone is as cowed as the media. And the stupid-dangerous girl is facing pushback.
Like this response from Patrick Moore – the co-founder of Greenpeace:
Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) February 23, 2019
If we don’t fight back against her, this stupid-dangerous “pompous little twit” can do some serious damage.
Not necessarily legislatively. At least not yet.
No, her damage will come from the millions of sycophantic followers who now want to elect their own stupid-dangerous socialist made in AOC’s image.
Stupidity is contagious.
And that is no laughing matter.
All those funny memes may make you laugh, but mocking her alone won’t make a damn bit of difference.
She has to be called out.
Her dangerous stupidity needs to be exposed.
Or, like any contagion, it will spread.
But there is some good news.
You see, like most stupid-dangerous Leftists, AOC is pushing too hard and too far. She, like her ideological pals in Congress, has the unfortunate habit of saying the quiet parts out loud.
She’s stupid-dangerous, after all, not an evil mastermind.
And AOC’s grown so big for her britches, she really does believe she can say anything with impunity. She really does think her word holds more weight and significance than any of her fellow Democrats in Congress.
She is the modern-day Icarus – flying perilously close to the sun in the poorly-fabricated wings of her own making.
There is no doubt that AOC and her likeminded brownshirts are a danger to America.
But what will be her downfall is that she’s become a liability to her own party.
And the more she gets challenged — the more we fight back — the more reckless her rhetoric becomes. Which, in turn, will make her an even bigger liability to Nancy Pelosi.
And at the rate AOC is going, it won’t be long before the Democrat leadership in Congress move in to clip her wings.
