After Wednesday's non-apology by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to the House floor where she said of the retiring Republican:


"I do not need Representative Yoho to apologize to me. Clearly he does not want to. Clearly when given the opportunity he will not. And I will not stay up late at night waiting for an apology from a man who has no remorse over calling women & using abusive language towards women."

Here is my full response regarding Mr. Yoho and the culture of misogyny that inspired his actions.

I am deeply appreciative of my colleagues and everyone speaking up and out against the rampant mistreatment of women both in Congress and across the country. ⬇️ https://t.co/nFfxy5UdmP

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 23, 2020


The Hill reports:


Yoho (R-Fla.) was coming down the steps on the east side of the Capitol on Monday, having just voted, when he approached Ocasio-Cortez, who was ascending into the building to cast a vote of her own.

In a brief but heated exchange, which was overheard by a reporter, Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez she was "disgusting" for recently suggesting that poverty and unemployment are driving a spike in crime in New York City during the coronavirus pandemic.

"You are out of your freaking mind," Yoho told her.

A reporter who heard the exchange says after walking away, Yoho murmured "f*cking bitch." AOC recounted this during her speech today, including using the specific language used against her. The NYC congresswoman added:


"Mr. Yoho was not alone, he was walking shoulder to shoulder with Rep. Roger Williams and that's when we start to see that this issue is not about one incident, it's cultural. It is culture of lack of impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women and an entire structure of power that supports that. Because not only have I been spoken to disrespectfully, particularly by members of the Republican party and officials of the Republican party, not just here but the President of the United States last year told me to go home, to another country with the implication that I don't even belong in America. The governor of Florida, Governor DeSantis, before I was even sworn in, called me a whatever that is. Dehumanizing language is not new. And what we are seeing now is that incidents like these are happening in a pattern. This is a pattern of an attitude towards women and dehumanization of others."


There's a lot going on, but there's a reason @AOC's speech today on the House floor is resonating. She says what for too long has gone unsaid. Silence is not an option. The moment for reckoning with misogyny and harassment, in Congress, and in the country, is here.

No, she is an obnoxious far left wing loon that never fails to open her mouth about things she knows nothing about. That has nothing to do with her sex, race, or anything else other than her stupidity.

But at least she is fitting right in with the other corrupt politicians in Washington.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/ocasio-cortez-s-campaign-finance-has-critics-crying-hypocrisy

Maybe you need to review some of AOC's biggest hits:

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/07/alexandria-ocasio-cortezs-green-new-deal-keeps-farting-cows-for-now.html

They also aimed to have the U.S. creating “net-zero” greenhouse gases in 10 years. Why “net zero”? The lawmakers explained: “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

When she discovered the garbage disposal.

When she called the electoral college a racist scam.

Or her getting Amazon not to invest in NY- which would have brought in much needed good paying jobs; and enriched the neighborhood. So dumb she thought a 3 billion dollar tax break was the same as giving Amazon 3 billions dollars. Well NY got nothing, and will have to like it. 

Here are some more of her dumber moments.

But she has that all important D behind her name; so she is golden to the left.

The amount of hate conservatives have shown toward AOC is directly correlated to their fear of her as an extremely strong, articulate and opinionated woman who isn't the least bit cowed by any of them. A woman who burns them every time.  The kicker- even many republican women agree with her on this.

Oh boy, you really aren't going to like it when this generation of women take their power. Feel better after that disgusting comment?   AOC is just one of the first young women to be a voice against misogyny and sexism.  I'm pretty sure these old farts wouldn't appreciate their own comments coming at their own wife or daughter. But most women agree she nailed it. Reading the disgustingly sexist misogynist comments from the right makes me even happier these young women are taking over from the old boys network.

In other words, instead of simply accepting an apology and forgiving someone, another hour on the floor was needed to allow others to decide if the apology was good enough?

Maybe because you mistook his bullshit for an apology. It was not. It was a poor attempt to lie and obfuscate, no apology for what he called her at all. And you'll be seeing that clip of her many more times over the years to come. She spoke for millions of women. It was beautiful to behold. The fact all the old geezers are having a cow is they know their time is up. Enjoy women making a big point in November.

Many of us couldn't believe how many Trump supporters were offended by that comment essentially admitting that she was talking about them when she was specifically referring only to those who are "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic – Islamophobic". Apparently that aptly described more than just half of Trumps base since virtually all of them bitched and whined about it.

You assume it is okay to dismiss and dehumanize a young Congresswoman. A very popular one among her own constituents who will reelect her overwhelmingly. If you don't get it you are part of the reason American women voters are presently running away from the gop...

Where I come from (Reality--a nice, quite little town, look it up someday or better, yet, come visit!), a record of 1-0 is pretty darn good!

He won the ONLY election he ever ran in, and it was the biggest election that we have here.

Not too damn shabby.

Bet Hillary wishes she had Trump's record!

Bet you wish Trump hadn't won it, too!

But hey, I get it. When you don't have your candidate of choice sitting in the WH, I am sure it must make you feel better by taking solace in inconsequential, meaningless things. Rock on, rock on!

And damn, all those overall votes for Congress, and you couldn't even manage to win the Senate?

Is that possible because Democrats got tons of votes in big-population states?

Just seems like if you get the most overall votes by such a wide margin, you would certainly do better than the Democrats did in 2018.

Antifa are unaffiliated anarchists that I disagree with, but they do not have any blood on their hands. BLM has done nothing wrong, they have merely been blamed by ignorant bigots of any and all vandalism and violence that occurs at any protest regardless of whether it was some right wing infiltrators or Boogaloo boys. The claim that they were responsible for the Texas officers being gunned down is pure unadulterated bullshit and only used by the most worthless of racist bigots trying to smear a movement that is merely trying to stand up for their own civil rights.

The right wing attracts Nazi's, the KKK and white supremacists of all stripes. Right wing extremism has actual blood on their hands with dozens of murders happening at their hands annually.

How those on the right can sleep at night knowing they are voting along with Nazi's, domestic terrorists, white supremacists, fascists and other right wing extremists is truly amazing to me.

"Trump Brutally Mocked For Tweet Appealing To 'Suburban Housewives'


President Donald Trump   ’s decision to reach out to a particular demographic may have backfired if reactions to his tweet are any indication.

On Thursday, the president retweeted      a New York Post editorial       criticizing presumptive Democratic nominee      Joe Biden   ’s plan to      build more high-density affordable housing in suburban areas.

The president’s retweet came with a comment suggesting that the “Suburban Housewives of America” read the article to learn how the former vice president planned to destroy American neighborhoods.

But the president’s attempt at appealing to suburban women didn’t work out as he might have expected, possibly because many people found the reference to “housewives” to be anachronistic at best.

So far...yes. Prior to LBJ and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the subsequent changes in party makeup black Americans were as likely to be Republicans as Democrats. Now Republicans seldom get 10% of the black vote in national elections. The way things are going the gop will have as hard a time retaining women voters of all races and cultural backgrounds. You guys obviously don't get how repulsed women voters are when republican men dehumanize, degrade and denigrate women lawmakers like AOC.

Even the reason he approached her displays his abject stupidity.  Obviously, he has a lot of problems.

It was no doubt an intentional appeal to his constituents, many of whom are deathly afraid of smart young women of color. They hold an enormous amount of animosity for anyone that threatens their precious white Christian patriarchy.

For all the frantic bombast from Trump loyalists, I smell fear. (Ok I smell their toots too, but mainly fear.)

Fear is usually the cause of irrational hatred such as that exhibited by so many above against Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez. Please note that not a one of those bashing her could articulate why...other than that she is young and brown and working class and liberal!

There were lots of yahoos calling her stupid. This is a US Congresswoman. Yep, she scares em shytless.

Isn't it just amazing how the reactionaries try to prove what big tough men they are by cursing out and insulting women?

It brings to mind the line from the song in "West Side Story"... "psychologically disturbed".

Yep - that's what I smell. (And the toots too.)

AOC is smart, articulate and determined.  She instills fear in those who rely on fear for power.

As far as Rep. Yoho----he is not, not and not-----and is a Trumper that felt a calling but nothing else.

I am not a fan of Ms. Ocasia Cortez.  She is a little too liberal for my taste and I think she leans heavy on identity politics.  With that said, none of us should be surprised with how republican men view and treat women.   I applaud her for calling out Mr. Yoho for his vulgarity towards women and for Mr. Williams' silence to the abuse.  His silence is his agreement.
