AOC Tries To Take On Ted Cruz, Quickly Learns That Was A Huge Mistake

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

One of the big lies the radical left-wing Democrats try to pull over the eyes of the average American voter is that while Democrats were once the racist party of Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, and political figures like notorious bigot George Wallace, things switched up and now Republicans are the racists. This, of course, is not even remotely true.

However, that didn’t stop Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York from attempting to use the tired old line against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. She quickly learned the hard way that was a big mistake.

In a Twitter thread so thoroughly entertaining it even caught the attention of Elon Musk, Cruz managed to school both AOC and anti-Trump, anti-Cruz RINO Norman Ornstein, an emeritus scholar at the American Enterprise Institute,” The Western Journal said. ”

The whole kerfuffle began when Ornstein attacked Cruz for criticizing the NAACP’s virtue-signaling ‘travel advisory’ for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ state of Florida. The senator said the boycott was ‘bizarre’ and ‘utterly dishonest,’ noting that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. ‘would be ashamed of how profoundly [the NAACP has] lost their way,” the report continued.

“Guess who would have been first in line to filibuster against the voting rights act, and the civil rights act. Yes, Ted Cruz!” Ornstein responded in a tweet posted on Monday.

“Nonsense. That shameful filibuster was led by Democrats—your party,” Cruz said. “My party — the Republicans — proudly voted for the Civil Rights Act in much higher percentages than the racist Dems.”

While Ornstein isn’t technically a Democrat, Cruz’s statement remains factually accurate. While the Democratic Party was pumping out folks like Wallace, Ovral Faubus, and James Eastland, the Republican Party was playing an instrumental role in helping to pass critical legislation aimed at making sure the filibuster was cleared out of the way.

And that’s about the time AOC decided to jump into the conversation, once again reminding everyone that she is completely incapable of thinking for herself, engaging with historical facts, and is seemingly allergic to telling the truth.

“Why don’t you go ahead and tell people what happened to the parties after that, Ted,” the congresswoman posted on social media.

No doubt AOC thought she had just posted the Twitter version of a “fatality” attack from Mortal Kombat, but in reality, it was a powerless blow that only unleashed the full might and fury of Ted Cruz.

“Sure,” he responded. “First, the Dem party founded the KKK. Then the Dem party wrote Jim Crow laws. Then the Dem party filibustered the Civil Rights Act.”

“But didn’t the Democrat most memorably associated with the Civil Rights Act filibuster, Strom Thurmond, eventually turn Republican? Yes, but that’s hardly the whole story — particularly when you realize the web of failing, paternalistic government-run systems in which modern Democrats have deliberately trapped underprivileged minorities with their legislative priorities,” the Western Journal reported.

“Today, the Dem part filibusters school choice — trapping millions of Black kids in failing schools,” Cruz pointed out. “Today, the Dem party pushes abolishing the police, which results in many more Black lives murdered. Today, every Dem senator voted against my bill to stop DC from throwing 40% of Black kids out of schools bc of vax mandate.”

“The Republican Party was founded to oppose slavery,” he added for good measure.

“Our first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln, who won the Civil War and ended slavery. It was Republicans who voted for the civil Rights Act in a much higher percentage than racist Dems,” the Texas Republican said, putting the final nail in the coffin of AOC’s weak attempt at an argument.

The senator then noted how the Republican Party has steadily worked over the years toward black economic emancipation here in the 21st century, while the left-wing has done nothing put push for a culture of dependency on the government.

“Today, we produced the lowest African-American unemployment EVER, under the Trump economic boom,” the Texas Republican said. “Today, we produced the lowest African-American poverty levels EVER, under the Trump economic boom.”

Here are a few more posts from Cruz:

Twitter owner Elon Musk was thrilled and quite entertained by the whole exchange:

Maybe AOC needs to crack open some actual history books instead of reading the revisionist garbage he consumed in public school?

Now that DeSantis has officially put himself in the presidential race, who will you be voting for?(Required)
