Earlier this week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put up a tweet so mind-numbingly stupid that calling it "factually incorrect" would be an insult to the word "incorrect." As is to be expected in the social media world, folks on the right ripped her to shreds for it. Take a moment and look at the social media responses bashing her. They are the exact same arguments the politico class made against then-candidate Donald Trump for two straight years, right up until the point he carpet-bombed Hillary Clinton on election night.
Yes, the tweet was incorrect. Yes, it would be nice if the people in our government had some actual knowledge about the things they talk about.
Do not underestimate this woman, and do not think your savage mockery of her stupidity will be an effective tool to stop her. It won't. It will instead be personalized by her supporters, creating an army that will lay down and die for her, just like the army Trump has. You should be afraid of Ocasio-Cortez. Very afraid.
