Have you ever heard the adage “ like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest”?
It describes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a T.
She is CONSTANTLY entering into confrontations that she keeps losing because she finds herself overly matched in the wits department.
You would think that somebody who doesn’t mind attacking people left and right would do herself a favor and arm herself with facts and logic…
But instead, she tries to lean on feelings and emotions.
She’s made herself look like an idiot so many times that there are almost too many to count. When she gets confronted with the facts and figures of what she says, she doesn’t retort – she simply backs away from the conversation and fades into the ether.
If you’re a conservative…
AOC doesn’t like you – and she has gone out of her way to attack Trump supporters or anybody that disagrees with her.
AOC Attacks But Never Wins
What she’s famous for is inserting herself into conversations that do not concern her – and once she gets confronted or destroyed, she turns tail and runs away, disappearing into the chatter of the internet.
She uses her air of superiority as a base of her attacks…
And she just recently used that “weapon” to enter into a fight that may be more than she bargained for. She just took up arms against a beloved figure with a HUGE following – and she may find herself buried in an avalanche of ridiculousness.
Do you know who Dave Portnoy is?
Dave Portnoy is the founder of sports and pop-culture site Barstool Sports, which has a rabid following of “bros” who love the content that Barstool puts out…
The site has branched out and has started doing events such as “Rough and Rowdy,” where regular people get inside a ring and swing wildly at each other’s faces – it’s great…
And it shows the kind of rabid fans that Barstool and “President” Portnoy have – because they know that everything they do is done with a laugh and their followers’ entertainment in mind.
Recently, Portnoy called out some scuttlebutt he heard about one of his competitors, The Ringer, and their employees…
He tweeted, “Heard @ringer employees want to unionize. Little refresher how I feel about unions…” and added a link to a response he wrote about Gawker employees unionizing.
“BAHAHA! I hope and I pray that Barstool employees try to unionize. I can’t tell you how much I want them to unionize. Just so I can smash their little union to smithereens. Nothing would please me more than to break it into a million little pieces. Oh, you think you deserve health insurance? You don’t think you should have to work with squirrels in the office? You don’t think I should duct tape Hank to the walls? Well now yis can’t leave! No more free water! No more vacation days! I’m gonna dump rats into the walls! You haven’t seen anything yet! Unionize, Nate! Unionize, Trent! I dare you! Trent, you’ll be back working security at Walmart in a blink of an eye! KFC will be doing my accounting! No more fancy-pants weddings! Hank will be an exhibit at the Museum of Science! UNIONIZE, I DARE YOU!”
Well, Portnoy’s tongue in cheek tweet was met with a response from fancy-pants “journalist” and union member, Rafi Letzter, who said, “If you work for Barstool and want to have a private chat about the unionization process, how little power your boss has to stop you, and how you can leverage that power to make your life better: my DMs are open.”
Portnoy responded to Letzter with a follow-up tweet: “If you work for @barstoolsports and DM this man, I will fire you on the spot”.
Again, this is OBVIOUSLY a joke to Portnoy – as most things are.
AOC PROVES She Doesn’t Have Her Finger On The Pulse Of Her Own City
Too bad for AOC, she clearly didn’t understand this.
She ended up injecting herself into the conversation when she tweeted, “If you’re a boss tweeting firing threats to employees trying to unionize, you are likely breaking the law & can be sued, in your words, ‘on the spot.’ ALL workers in the US have the protected freedom to organize for better conditions. See @NLRB & union organizations like @AFLCIO for tips.”
What an idiot…
She obviously has ZERO idea what Barstool Sports is. None.
So, in classic “Prez Portnoy” fashion, he tweeted her back, “Hey @aoc welcome to thunder dome. Debate me.”
First of all, she’d lose. Her district has lost more than $4K this year as well as the 25K jobs she prevented from coming into her district…
It wouldn’t take much to defeat her.
But she didn’t answer Portnoy’s challenge – she just continued talking about “worker’s rights” like the socialist she is.
“Bosses don’t wield all the power. Workers have plenty – yet many don’t know it! Study up & search the history of labor rights in America. School doesn’t teach the history of the US labor movement, but we have weekends because of it & we risk losing rights if we forget how we earned them.”
Again… she’s an idiot.
Even worse, if Portnoy sics the rabid Barstool fans on her, she’ll be inundated with insane amounts of ridiculousness – both online and in-person.
She PROBABLY just took a swing at one of the worst possible targets…
And it could cost her more of her already sub-basement-level reputation.
Good luck, AOC…
And PRAY Portnoy shows you mercy.
