Ocasio-Cortez Cooks Up Brand Spanking New Excuse For Accent Labeled As Racist. It’s A Doozy.

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come up with a new excuse for the sudden accent she developed while speaking to a black audience on Friday, stating she had to “code switch” it, otherwise there would be “costs” associated with not doing it.

Huh? Say what?

Yeah, this sounds like more gibberish from an extremely addled brain.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was condemned by many African-Americans for using the accent, initially claimed that those who were calling her out for the accent were trying to “distort” and “deflect” and that it was all a conspiracy theory.

The 29-year-old congresswoman — who regularly refers to those on the political Right as racists, white supremacists, and xenophobes — added that it was “so hurtful” that people would criticize her for using an accent.

Ocasio-Cortez’s claims that she used the voice during a speech about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and at a speech at the Women’s March were quickly debunked.

So what were the “costs” that AOC prattled on about in her post for not “code switching?”

“We see the perceived ‘costs’ to not code-switching all the time. Can’t tell you how many young people in our community don’t have the confidence they should bc they didn’t grow up learning secondary speech. Their talents get stifled by ‘respectability,’ despite enormous gifts.”

Here’s a sample of the backlash she faced on social media for her little “code switching.”

No matter how hard she tries to spin this, the truth of the matter is, she’s attempting to speak like a black person, which she is not, and thus, this is a poor attempt at pandering, to somehow make a “connection” to her audience.

In essence, she was trying to pretend as if she were one of them and understood the black audiences struggles, identifying with them and their group and their group’s experiences.

As you can see, that didn’t work. At all. In fact, it had quite the opposite effect, alienating these individuals and taking away from whatever message she was trying to push.

This girl will never learn it seems.
