CNN Says Conservatives Attack Ocasio-Cortez Because She’s an ‘Eloquent’ ‘Latina’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) frequently gets called out for the things she says by folks on the right.

And CNN thinks they’ve figured out why that is.

According to CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson, it’s because Ocasio-Cortez is “incredibly charismatic,” “a young Latina,” and “incredibly eloquent.”

From Newsbusters:

Well, she’s incredibly charismatic. She is in some ways a symbol of where the country is going in terms of demographics. He or she is a young Latina woman who upset a Democrat in New York, and she’s incredibly eloquent in terms of talking about Democratic party values.

And apparently, they’re picking on her because they don’t have Hillary Clinton to pick on anymore, according to Henderson.

And I think she’s probably right, this idea that she’s the new boogeywoman — the old boogeywoman was obviously Hillary Rodham Clinton. We remember those chants of, ‘Lock her up, lock her up.’ They’ve moved on from that and found a new boogeywoman in AOC.

While Henderson acknowledges that Ocasio-Cortez makes some Democrats “nervous,” she doesn’t explain why.

She doesn’t mention that maybe she’s criticized because of her incorrect socialist positions.

And it’s just those positions that make some Democrats “nervous” as their party is being pushed further to the far left.

That the criticism has nothing to do with her being Latina, ‘charismatic’ or “eloquent.”
