    AOC Pulls a Hillary

    'She pulled a Hillary': Critics mock AOC for 'affecting an accent' while speaking to a mostly black audience in NYC alongside Al Sharpton, while calling for 'reparations for Black Americans'

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has drawn criticism for seeming to affect an accent while speaking to a mostly black audience at a conference held by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

    'Ain't nothing wrong with that,' the freshman Democrat drawled while speaking on Friday at Sharpton's National Action Network conference in the Sheraton Times Square in Manhattan.

    'I'm proud to be a bartender. Ain't nothing wrong with that,' Ocasio-Cortez said. 'There's nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy.'

    Conservative pundits quickly pointed out the jarring accent that Ocasio-Cortez seemed to slip into repeatedly, which sounded halfway between Southern drawl and Boricua twang.


    EDIT - I had to take down the video because some of the comments were... um.... over the top. Just Google "AOC Black Voice"

    Now, let's sit back and watch the liberals try to justify this gratuitous pandering.

    They are so condescending towards black people...

    And Al Gore could do it with the best of them, instantly switching into a stereotypical Southern black speech pattern.

    Cortez said that's how they roll in da hood.

    Right, because patronizingly affecting an accent and speech register that does not come naturally to you is a show of respect. No, really.

    I wonder if she knows what the term "poser" means?

    All virtue signalling aside ... what sort of reception did she get from the audience? There is no mention of any offence being taken by the audience, so I'll put this one provisionally in the "beat-up" category.

    The crowd went wild. She gets a pass because she's singing their song.

    This whole reparations kick the democrats are on is nothing but pandering for votes. They know it will never happen.

    They are even trying to get voting rights reinstated for felons in prison, knowing it will never happen but just pretending to fight for it to get more black votes.

    They want to expand their voter base by including illegal aliens, incarcerated felons and 16 year olds. Says a lot about what they see their prospects are if they have to go to these lengths.
