AOC Gets Just 60 Seconds at Democrat Convention; Far-Left Goes Into Apoplectic Meltdown

Who’da thunk it?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the darling of “Democratic” Socialists everywhere, will be relegated to just sixty seconds — in a pre-recorded video, to boot — at next week’s Democrat National Convention.

Why, that’s just not revolutionary at all!

This is not to say that a majority of D.C. Democrats don’t walk lockstep with AOC on many if not most of her crazy positions (see: “Green New Deal”), mind you. What it does say is this:

As is the case with the feverish kabuki dance now underway within the Democrat Party and its media-mouthpiece networks that Kamala Harris is a “pragmatic centrist,” party higher-ups are well aware that a loose-lipped erstwhile bartender from the Bronx has the ability — and desire — to  scare the bejesus out of what is left of the “moderate” wing of the party; not a good idea with less than 90 days until the election.

And how does AOC feel about what amounts to a brief cameo?

“Forced upon” her is right. Make no mistake; Alex from the Bronx™ is one ticked-off little socialist — Socialist Barbie, as I like to call her.


As reported by the New York Post, AOC has been limited to the sixty-second pre-recorded “appearance,” while Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg will deliver live virtual speeches at the COVID-revamped event.

The four-day online convention, titled “Uniting America,” will feature different themes and speakers each day during two-hour broadcasts beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

The convention was originally planned to be held in Milwaukee, but was moved mostly online last month as the coronavirus continues to ravage the country. Biden is expected to accept the Democratic nomination from his home state of Delaware.

Each night’s events will be packed into two hours of programming beginning at 9 p.m. ET, with speeches from the likes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Here’s a list of the Democrats scheduled to speak.

Monday: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (a Republican who ran against Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP primary) and former first lady Michelle Obama.

Tuesday: Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, former President Bill Clinton and Jill Biden, the candidate’s spouse.

Wednesday: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former President Barack Obama and California Sen. Kamala Harris, the just-named vice presidential nominee.

Thursday: New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the Biden family and the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.


Each night will have a distinct “theme.”

According to convention officials, “story-telling” will be a “yuuge” part of the four-day event. (See: “Democrats,” “symbolism over substance.”)

Did you catch the name of the prominent Democrat whose name has recently been in the news for not very good reasons at all?

Apparently, Bill Clinton’s alleged trip(s) to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedophile Island” didn’t disqualify him from being among those chosen to represent the “Uniting America” theme Democrats are desperate to foist upon the American electorate.

Slick Willie’s inclusion, coupled with AOC’s 60-second video, was not lost on Left-winger Michael Salamone, who tweeted:

AOC gets 60 seconds to address the DNC. Rashida nor Ilhan speaking. Meanwhile, Jeffrey Epstein’s pal Bill Clinton & his partner who gave us Trump in the first place will get to babble to their hearts’ content. The Democrats hate progressives more than they want to win.

Other lefties were just as unhappy.



Ah, but “Princess Demon” found a “silver lining” in the injustice visited upon the Leftists. “Be thrilled she has even a minute,” she said.

No doubt, AOC will use her “thrilling minute” —  she will be part of a group (symbolically) nominating Sen. Bernie Sanders — to attempt to fire up the Bernie Bros, along with her own utopian peanut gallery, still incensed that the old socialist was once again torpedoed by the Democrat Party as he continued to rack up delegates.


Meanwhile, the Democrat Party and its liberal media lapdogs continue to desperately put lipstick on the pig that is Biden-Harris 2020.
