Pay Attention To Me, AOC!

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Reps. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Lauren Boebert.

As the Washington Post reports via The Hill, freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia’s quest to make working class white America look as bad as possible in the eyes of the rest of the world continues with another trademark walk-up accosting–this time targeting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of New York, in hope of provoking a verbal sparring match that might miscast them as intellectual equals:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) office is calling on top lawmakers to ensure that Congress remains “a safe, civil place” for members and staff after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) reportedly accosted her on Wednesday and accused her of supporting “terrorists.”

The incident was witnessed by two Washington Post reporters, according to the newspaper, which reported that Ocasio-Cortez exited the House chamber before Greene shouted “Hey Alexandria” multiple times to get her attention.

Ocasio-Cortez did not stop to address Greene, and the Georgia lawmaker continued shouting while asking her why she supports antifa and Black Lives Matter, claiming they are “terrorist” groups, according to the Post.

Marjorie Taylor Greene harassing Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

As she amply demonstrated in her stalking of encounter with a survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting outside Congress in 2019, MTG simply doesn’t understand how these kinds of random confrontations in informal settings leaves her as the only party looking bad. There is of course an audience for this kind of boorish behavior, enough to sustain MTG’s ego while she treats left-wing luminaries this way, but to a majority of people including plenty of conservatives she’s just a terrible ambassador for her own cause.

Then this morning as controversy raged over yesterday’s incident, MTG’s “Q-some Twosome” wingperson Rep. Lauren Boebert swooped in to lay down some cover fire:

That appears to be the formula, just like with David Hogg: MTG does the in-person heckling, and Boebert follows on with trollbait for her vast social media following. The whole objective is to keep their names in circulation opposite the GOP’s most vilified boogeywoman of color in elected office–or at least AOC was until Kamala Harris became vice president. By harassing objectively much more qualified colleagues (this is the polite way of saying it) in hallways and on the Twitters, Boebert and MTG hope to bully their way to parity.

The old saying has never been more true than in this case: don’t feed the trolls.

  1. They're working on casting for "Mean Girls: Congress," with MTG as Regina George and what's her name from CO 3 as Gretchen Wieners both confirmed to play members of the Plastics.
