The Truth behind the Ocasio-Cortez Dance Scandal

While President Trump has dominated the headlines, other news still exists. Unfortunately, it’s mostly reported by the mainstream media, and you don’t need to be told what’s wrong with that. While they’ve been going crazy over the shutdown, they tried to sneak some quality fake news past our defenses. They almost got away with it too. You’ve probably heard of the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) dance scandal. You might not yet know the real story.

The Scandal

Admittedly, this scandal took second place to wall/government shutdown coverage. Even by twisted mainstream media standards, that’s the bigger story. Regardless, this particular scandal made the rounds in major news outlets. More than 40 headlines and segments made it very clear that republicans and conservatives were very outspoken against a video of AOC dancing on a rooftop while she was in college.

If you haven’t seen the video, it’s pretty innocent. It’s just an awkward college kid in a student production doing some dancing on a rooftop. There’s really nothing to see. That’s why mainstream media emphasized how ridiculous and immoral it was for conservatives to go after AOC when the video surfaced. Republicans have to hate fun, dancing, happiness and women to behave in such a manner.

They didn’t stop there. The Huffington Post and similar outlets made it clear that this ill-advised conservative attack was really a win for their new princess. They really made a production out of this.

Wait a Minute

Do you remember a single person or conversation that condemned AOC for the video? Sure, you’ve probably seen a few headlines yourself about how much conservatives hated the video, but have you heard any statements firsthand? With hundreds of millions of Americans, it seems inevitable that someone, somewhere said something stupid, but which conservative or Republican leaders had anything at all to say on the topic? You can’t think of a single instance, can you? That’s because this outrage never happened.

This is classic fake news at its best. The smokescreen is that the video is real and it did in fact go viral. What didn’t happen is a mainstream conservative backlash against the video. Most conservatives never even watched it. Most republican leaders had nothing at all to say about it. The truth is that it’s an unimportant video and never impacted any of our lives.

Here’s the other crafty part of the fake news cycle. Two “conservatives” have been quoted in almost every iteration of this coverage. The first is Dan Jordan (we don’t know who he is either). Mainstream media has decided that he is now the ultimate representative of the Republican base. What was his criticism of the video? Here’s the quote, “…High School video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — Congratulations New York!” That’s it. That’s the Republican outrage. It’s not even easy to tell if this is sarcastic or not. It’s certainly not representative of the base, and it’s hardly a statement worthy of news.

The only other criticism found in this entire fake outrage is from a Twitter user by the handle AnonymousQ1776. That’s great journalism. Somehow an anonymous Twitter handle and a nobody who really didn’t say anything at all now constitute nationwide conservative outrage.

A Great Response

In the midst of this blatant dishonesty, a hero as emerged. Well, Dan Crenshaw was a real American hero long before this, but he scored another big win. In an extremely short, brutal Twitter exchange, he rebuked AOC for pushing this fake news story. She said, “I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!”

His response is beyond beautiful, “No one thinks this is scandalous. Dance away (was actually pretty good). What is scandalous is increasing income taxes to 70%. It’s wholly unethical for anyone to work a majority of the year just to give their money to the government. Dancing’s great, but ideas matter more.” That looks like total destruction.

Let’s recap what really happened. The collective effort of the mainstream media cooked up a fake story and all jumped on the bandwagon. They did it to try and discredit every conservative in the country and simultaneously make their new champion politician look good. Unfortunately, they did this in an age of information sharing and mistrust of the media. All they accomplished was to make themselves look even dumber, catch their champion in the promotion of this lie and further elevate Dan Crenshaw as the best person in politics.

  1. How typical. The Fake Media make up a story, and the supposed ‘victim’ uses it to be self-agrandising.
    Mazal Tov, NY! You’ve got a real winner in A.O.C.
    And NOT because of some stupid video of her dancing.
    And so-called ‘MainStream Media’ [AKA ‘Fake Media’]: Trying to steal the plot of “Footloose”, much?

  2. I would like to know where Ocasio-Cortez went to high school and college.What was her Major and what Grades did she accomplish for Graduating.Also did she graduate?What type of Diploma did she receive?

  3. So she can dance, good for her. I just hope she can be as competent a congressperson as she is a dancer. Sadly, she hasn’t proven anything of the kind so far.

  4. This socialist woman just doesn’t have a clue and now the MS Media idiots are trying to make an idol out of her and trying to build her up as an important hero and person of interest and she is NEITHER!! She is just a legend in her own mind and it’s sad and sickening to think enough people voted for her so she could win the office!! They are getting exactly what they asked for, and voted for !! Sad.

  5. We didn’t really need this article, most Americans know fake news when we c it.
    And being of New York and Muslim dose she represent all LGBTQ’s??? Ha! Do they have a surprise coming!!

  6. The fake news media and this kid of a congresswoman is a big joke and she will never amount to anything but stupidity in the things she proposes like 70% tax on the wealthy which will cause the economy to tank as they will lay people off and close the doors to their factories as it would not be profitable to keep their businesses operating,it would be worse than the Obama economy.The Democrat party will sink under their own stupidity.

  7. Proposing 70% taxes and regulations like the green new deal is why all those American jobs were shipped oversea’s.. DEMAND that civics and the Constitution be required classes for graduation, that would change the mindset of our youth. It only takes 1 generation for liberty to be lost. I fear the millennials are that generation

  8. So she can dance? Everyone needs something they can do. So far had not seen anything she could do but flap her lips and give you a drug stare. I have to give her credit being able to Dance. (But never seen her dance!)

  9. Should your motive here is to learn paintings on the market Melbourne or
    paintings available Brisbane, unfortunately but you
    can’t notice here. After the Bourbon Restoration, because the trial participant of Louis XVI, David was
    without the benefit of his civil right and property, and
    was made to leave his homeland to in Brussels where David also completed many works, lastly died in a very strange land.
    It is maybe one of the most worldwide of mediums, in its practice along with its range.

  10. And tell this next Lady Democrat Know It All that the right to own and bear arms is indeed part of our constitution. Ask her if she has heard of the “Bill of Rights”? Apparently she never went to a Civics class.

  11. everyone has a chance do what they want i don’t criticize her for dancing , i am concerned about the people who voted her in so far she has been a detriment to her party, that’s the way i feel she has come with some off the wall suggestion, things certainly not favorable for the people.

  12. F*ckin’ amazing things here. I’m very glad to see your article. Thanks so much and i am looking forward to contact you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?
