Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is certainly making lots of headlines on the right side of the aisle.
And those headlines find her being clueless and wrong. To a breathtaking degree — particularly the clueless part.
But that begs a question: For every conservative action, is there an equal or opposite one of the left-wing sort? Is she being, just as frequently, hailed as a spot-on genius over there?
As for more from RedState: VP Mike Pence blasted the socialist twentysomething at the Christians United for Israel Summit Monday, over what he considered her trivialization of the Holocaust.
He told the crowd:
“We must never allow the memory of those lost in the Holocaust to be cheapened as a cliche to advance some left-wing political narrative.”
(That would be her).

“Sadly in recent weeks, that’s exactly what some Democrats have done in the national debate. Last month, a leading Democrat in Congress actually compared our U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facilities to concentration camps. And her allies in Congress, the Left, and the media shamefully came to her defense.”
They certainly defended her.
But Mike didn’t:
“To compare the humane work of dedicated men and women of Customs and Border Protection with the horrors of the Holocaust is an outrage. The Nazis took lives.”
The Vice President needs to get with the program — the word “nazi” now only has two possible meanings:
B) Anything anyone who isn’t conservative doesn’t like.
Among the latest First World generation, completely lost on mushy minds are the high stakes of real life and death. These days, pronouns are at the epicenter of the best and worst the world can bestow. That’s life, death, and the violence in between. Hence, perchance to many, the border’s a veritable genocide.
But Mr. Pence believes there are more profound things:
“American law enforcement saves lives every day. Make no mistake about it, this slander of law enforcement was an insult to the six million killed in the Holocaust. And it should be condemned by every American of every political party everywhere.”
Alexandria’s clueless comments certainly brought their share of stories. Such as these:
That’s a lot.
During Mike’s speech, he also managed to get in a plug for the ol’ Commander-in-Chief:
“I promise you — President Donald Trump will always honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, and he will always honor the service of the brave men and women of law enforcement.”
That should be a headline; I think I’ll make it one.
