(Tea Party PAC) – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the socialist upstart who entered the House of Representatives a little over a year ago to much controversy and attention, as it turns out, is a one-trick pony.
All she knows how to do is say hilariously radical things and blather on about them on social media.
So naturally, she’s a prolific user of Instagram, from which she bashed radio legend Rush Limbaugh, who recently announced he has advanced-stage lung cancer, as a “virulent racist.”
She also included her totally not-racist white boyfriend, Riley Roberts, to discuss how white people can be shimmering beacons of not-racism like he is.
“So Riley, what has been helpful to you in combating racism?” AOC asks her girlfriend–sorry, boyfriend.
“I think it’s helpful and important to talk to other white people about racism, and I think a lot of people, they don’t want to be racist,” Roberts responds, looking “as though he’s trying to remember what he was supposed to say,” BizPacReview notes.
“They don’t think that they’re racist, but they also don’t know some of the things they believe or say are and can be racist,” he continues on.
He believes what’s best is to explain to your friends that all their “racist” views are “wrong,” although no one ever gets very specific as to what these “racist” and “wrong” views actually are.
He also noted that you may want to downplay the language, though, at least, at first, having the “right vs. wrong” chat before getting into the whole “racist vs. not racist vs. anti-racist” thing.
Got to get your finger-wagging in the right order, this is important.
“One of the effective ways is just to talk and kind of help teach them about why some of the things they believe or say or think are wrong — not necessarily racist — but that they’re wrong and that will sort of chip away and contribute to some development in this area but not necessarily take somebody from being a racist to not being a racist in one conversation,” he explained.

AOC goes on to explain that if only everyone would be good little fascists and acknowledge how bad and wrong they are and accept the scolding for the “racist things that we may have said or done without judgment or defensiveness.”
What do you have to say about that, Twitter?
Oh, ffs. Am I the only one rooting for the Apocalypse?

She is so great at that. I didn't even see her lips move.
It genuinely looks like her puppet is talking and thinking for itself… 🙆♂️https://t.co/s8Ft0TwPvJ

This is creepy as hell. It looks more like a mother-son relationship that romantic partnership. The whole tone, the asking questions to see if he gets it right…just creepy.

The coolest part is how she gave him permission to speak.

Riley, blink S.O.S. if you need help sent.

While Roberts doesn’t make a frequent appearance in his girlfriend’s politically-charged content — and she doesn’t speak about him very often — he made the news when a conservative group filed an ethics complaint against the couple. The Coolidge Reagan Foundation claimed that the AOC campaign “illegally funneled thousands of dollars through a PAC to her boyfriend Riley Roberts.” By reportedly labeling Roberts as a “staff” member of the campaign, despite allegations that he was never employed, he was able to receive over $1M from two PACs founded by Saikat Chakrabarti, AOC’s former top aide.
Perhaps this is why he prefers to stay out of the spotlight? Unless, of course, he’s pandering to race-obsessed leftists on behalf of his girlfriend.
