In true dramatic effect, Alexandria Ocasio-Cotrez (D-NY) demanded to be sworn in for her testimony in front of the House Committee on Oversight, which most people would assume is just the action of someone who gets their civics from Netflix shows instead of textbooks. Unfortunately this time there is a strategy involved instead of just another dumb AOC meme. Remember, AOC is one of the freshman lawmakers who were backed by the shadowy Justice Democrats, so someone is pulling her strings.
The bid here is that she will further her lies about illegal immigrants drinking out of toilets, and perhaps even about her feeling “sexually and physically threatened” by border patrol officers. The Left will claim that she said it “under oath” and therefore it must be true, because Democrats wouldn’t lie under oath would they? AOC fully plans for Republicans to call her out on her lies, which in this case would be perjury, and AOC will claim they are trying silence her and cover up the truth, mark this on your calendars because in a couple of weeks you will thank us for letting you see this theatre for what it is, and you’ll be better prepared for the victim narrative.
This is to make her lying a wedge issue. Democrats will repeat her lie as an offensive tactic to get the public to hear her lie so much that they believe it must be true, then, the main stream media will use public polling on the lies they told Americans, something akin to “do you believe the lie we repeated for an week, circle yes/no” to convince Republicans that persuing perjury would be publically unpopular, and therefore, when the Republicans drop the pursuit, the Left will claim that they were right the entire time and the lie becomes the truth.
You’re welcome America.
