Dan Crenshaw Tells Fox News That Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs Tweet To Him Is “Almost Not Worth Responding To
Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was mentioned 3,181 times on Fox News and Fox Business during the 6 weeks from Feb. 25 to April 7 — 75 times a day — according to the liberal Media Matters for America.
The big picture: "Not a day went by when she wasnt spoken about on Fox," AP notes. Among the names that Fox hosts called Ocasio-Cortez include "little girl," "Comrade Cortez," an "idiotic wind bag," "the Steve Bannon of the left" and more. Fox Business host Stuart Varney even acknowledged: "We have an AOC segment every single day almost every single hour because "she is good for our ratings."
Share Geobeats Geobeats Apr 13th 2019 10:34AM Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is urging lawmakers to speak out against President Trump, who shared a video that was edited to suggest that Representative Ilhan Omar downplayed the 9/11 attacks.
Omars full quote was: For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, Im tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you cant just say that today someone is looking at me strange and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that, This person is looking at me strange. I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is the right you have.
Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the Presidents explicit attack today, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Friday. @IlhanMNs life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out.

Ocasio-Cortez backs boycott of racist New York Post
Her post came after Trump tweeted the video that showed snippets of comments Omar made last month at a banquet for a Muslim civil rights organization interspersed with footage of the twin towers burning, notes the Washington Post.
Countless pixels have flooded the internet speculating why conservative infotainment can’t get enough of their AOC fix. Some speculate that it’s a conscious ploy to drive down her favorability rating among those susceptible to right-wing propaganda–after all, if enough liberals either haven’t heard of her or aren’t sure how they feel, but every conservative in America thinks she is Satan incarnate, then their propaganda networks can misleadingly claim she is unpopular. Other analyses suggest that she is catnip for the darkest obsessive fears and longings of Fox News’ viewership: young, attractive, non-white, whip smart and fearlessly outspoken both on the moral imperatives of our time and the shortcomings of conservative ideological and policy frameworks. For a segment of the population paranoid about being “replaced,” AOC is almost the perfect embodiment of the generation about to replace them: the sort of younger, cooler person who they wish both kowtowed to and respected them, and whom they wish wasn’t in the country in the first place.
