AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I wrote last week about the mysterious absence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Twitter and what it said about her. Her sudden muteness seemed to coincide directly with the “reassigning” of her Chief of Staff, who had long been speculated to be the “brains” behind her and the other Justice Democrats. He’s the one who started the movement from the ground up and he’s the one who was directly controlling all of AOC’s communications.

Without him, she suddenly went dark, only further feeding rumors that she relied heavily on Saikat Chakrabarti to deliver her whit and snark.

Well, she’s back and she’s basically confirming those rumors to be true if her performance is any measure.

Diseases being released from glaciers. What the…?

She then goes on to rant more about climate change, asserting that every coastal city is going to be underwater, not in hundreds of years, but soon. As if she’s reading from some kind of Biblical prophecy, she then predicts droughts and the human race dying out.

She bases all of this on absolutely nothing substantive, but if she really believes it, maybe leaving New York would be prudent. It is a coastal city after all, and by her telling, it’ll be under water in the near future.

This woman is certifiable. None of this is normal. The only thing that keeps me from just laughing at this and moving on is that people with these views are actually gaining ground right now, not losing it. AOC is an elected member of Congress. She’s not just some rando on Instagram. That’s a pretty disconcerting reality. We are less than a decade from her likely running for president.

Unlike the Obamas and many other liberal elites though, I actually think she believes what she’s saying. This is her cult and she’s all in. Her level of anxiety about the doomsday predictions she’s spouting probably require some form of therapy at this point. I almost feel sorry for her.
