GOP QAnon Candidate Tries To Mock AOC On Twitter — And Makes A Fool Of Herself

Reprinted with permission from Alternet

Far-right Republican and QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene, who recently won a GOP congressional primary in an ultra-conservative district in Georgia, has made no secret of her deep hatred for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive Democrats she will likely be joining in the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2021. This week, Greene went out of her way to insult AOC on Twitter — and it did not end well for the Georgia Republican.

Greene posted, "As a blonde woman, I would like to take a moment to thank Congresswoman @AOC. She has single handily put an end to all 'dumb blonde' jokes. Blondes everywhere appreciate your service and your sacrifice!"

#EndorseThis: AOC Humiliates Republican Bully Yoho On House Floor

Today's video isn't funny, unless you're amused by bullying misogynist members of Congress – in this instance, a rather obscure Florida Republican named Ted Yoho who has suddenly achieved a moment of fame by insulting the celebrated Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Evidently furious over remarks she had made connecting poverty and crime, Yoho braced AOC on the Capitol steps, loudly berated her -- and then indelibly proved his originality and intellect by calling her "disgusting" and "fucking bitch." (Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) joined in Yoho's tirade and later pretended not to have heard his colleague's obscene outburst. What a coward.)

If you know anything about AOC -- a young leader from the Bronx who doesn't play -- then you must know she would never accept such aggression from anyone. Following a self-pitying "sorry not sorry" non-apology from Yoho on the House floor, she delivered her response, on behalf of her mother and father and abused women everywhere.

Watch her eloquent answer and please share it, because at last one of these sleazebags got what was coming to him.
