Conservative creates fake interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to ridicule her.

Over a million Facebook users are fooled into believing it is true.

The video traveled quickly after it was shared on Facebook, gathering more than 1.5 million views in under a day after its Monday release.

It featured Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the congressional candidate from New York whose socialist campaign has stuck a lightning bolt into the world of Democratic politics.

She appeared to give bizarre answers in a two-and-a-half minute video that was staged as an interview with the conservative commentator Allie Stuckey on the site CRTV. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez shook her head “no,” when Ms. Stuckey asked if she had any knowledge about how the political system worked and seemed to imply that Venezuela was in the Middle East and a model of socialism.

But the video did not depict a real interview, despite its caption: “Allie *grills* congressional hopeful and progressive it girl “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” on her socialist agenda and knowledge of government… or lack thereof.” Instead, it used heavily edited footage from an interview Ms. Ocasio-Cortez did with PBS earlier this month, spliced to appear as answers to questions read by Ms. Stuckey.

Stuckey only labeled the video “satire” after she was called out for it multiple times, but before that happened over a million slack-jawed morons already convinced themselves of its authenticity. 

I am somewhat entertained by just how rattled the conservatives have been by the Cortez victory. 

She has already replaced Nancy Pelosi as the go-to liberal boogeyman and is causing all kinds of heart palpitations and predictions of doom from the Right Wing snowflakes. 

She even recognizes that herself:

I actually do not predict that the Democratic party is going to go full Ocasio-Cortez, but I do think we are pulling to the Left, and that can only be seen as a good thing.

    They thought this was Trump country. Hell no

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders visited Wichita, Kansas, to woo progressives in support of congressional candidate James Thompson. Is the red state ready to turn blue?

    …Through the thick cement walls of this downtown Wichita convention hall, we heard the roar of 4,000 Kansans awaiting speeches by Sanders, Thompson and progressive rocket ship Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in support of Thompson’s run for Congress. It was Ocasio-Cortez’s first political appearance outside New York after her remarkable primary win in June, when the 28-year-old democratic socialist defeated one of the most powerful House Democrats in Washington. Here in the midwest, Thompson – who also has never held office – has tapped into similar yearning for a representative who has more old friends at the local pub than in DC.

    The choice of location for her debut is poetic: like Sanders, she and Thompson have refused corporate donations, and this district is home to perhaps the greatest conservative influencers in US history – the Koch brothers, whose political network pledged to spend $400m on conservative candidates before the midterms.

    It’s one thing to push the Democratic party left in New York City. It is quite another to rabble-rouse for universal healthcare, wind energy and a livable wage in Charles Koch’s backyard. Doing so takes, my friends in the north-east might say, “hutzpah”.

    Or, as my Kansas farmer grandpa might have said: “That Jim is full of piss and vinegar.”

    No congressional candidate has ever done what Thompson is doing in this era of unrestricted corporate campaign donations: hold a progressive sword at the precise geographic heart of the dark-money beast.

    A GOP Senate Candidate Is Raffling A Machine That Makes ‘Untraceable’ AR-15s
    Austin Petersen is one of 11 Republicans competing in Missouri’s U.S. Senate primary election next month.

    To drum up support ahead of a highly-contested August primary, a GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri says he’s giving away a machine that can build “untraceable AR-15” rifles.

    Austin Petersen is one of 11 Republican contenders hoping to run against Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill in the fall. On Tuesday, he sent an email to supporters publicizing the giveaway of a Ghost Gunner 2, a machine that can build the rifle parts with no serial numbers, according to The Associated Press.

    “Your right to bear arms is a fundamental, unalienable right protected by the Second Amendment,” reads the raffle page on Petersen’s website. “The government has no power to take away your means of self-defense.”

    ““The female doctor had become so worried that Mount Sinai arranged for someone to accompany her to and from the hospital for at least a few days,” two of the Times’ sources claim. “The doctor, who had been a longtime friend of the couple’s, told hospital officials that she was concerned about what she saw as Mr. Kurson’s angry, erratic behavior.”

    Kurson has subsequently withdrawn from consideration for the National Endowment for the Humanities post, although he insisted to the Times that it was only due to the large amount of paperwork he had to fill out as part of the background check process.

    In addition to his long relationship with Kushner, Kurson was also a former speechwriter for Trump attorney and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani — and he even co-wrote Giuliani’s 2002 book, called “Leadership.””

    A Major Bank Slipped Up And Showed Why Women Rarely File Sex Discrimination Cases
    Invasive depositions, like the one conducted by ANZ’s lawyers, are another reason victims of discrimination often stay quiet.

    Of all the tactics companies use to silence women who speak up about sexual harassment, the way corporate lawyers question victims in depositions may be the most brutal.

    In these taped confrontations, defense lawyers interrogate people on every aspect of their sexual histories, medical records and traumas from childhood.

    Rarely do the depositions in civil cases get broad public attention. But this week, the Sydney Morning Herald obtained a transcript from a deposition that revealed exactly how lawyers for a major Australian bank, ANZ, grilled a former female employee.

        “Last night some girl came running up to me whispering “please pretend to be my friend this man has been following me for 6 blocks” as soon as this guy saw me hugging her he said “fuck” and went the other way. Please ladies stay safe and never walk alone!”

    Conservatives can’t stop melting down about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and socialism

    …Meanwhile, membership in the Democratic Socialists of America is surging. The organization now has over 46,000 members, according to Fox News, and they just helped to to get a measure on the ballot in Los Angeles that would allow voters to choose to create a public bank, one that would provide lending options to low-income people that aren’t tied to Wall St. banks or payday lending companies.

    “she has officially become a Democrat because of the “misogyny” and “racism” of the Trump administration.

    “I have not changed but the Republican Party most certainly has,”
