We’re just calling it like it is. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is an out and out liar. She’s so insipidly stupid she thinks people will accept her racist rants at face value without “fact checking” her. And fact
This time she’s creating a controversy out of thin air to attempt to denigrate and/or cause Fox News hosts to be fired, again.
She is claiming that Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson refer to her as “Cortez” instead of using her full last name. She is slamming Fox and accusing Fox hosts of “racial malice”.
“Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Cortez,’ which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them,” she claims in a tweet.
“Pro Tip: My last name is not ‘Cortez,’ just as theirs isn’t ‘Ingra’ or ‘Carl’ or ‘Hann,’” she added, in reference to Ingraham, Carlson, and Hannity.
Her bizarre complaint continued: “My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That’s my name. No, you can’t say ‘Cortez.’ I’ve never used that in my life. ‘Cortez’ is referring to someone else.”
“Even if they‘re trying to be rude + wrong, my dad’s last name was Ocasio anyway,” she said. “For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents’ names,” she explains in yet another post. “It’s not a ‘progressive, new thing.’ It’s just how some names work. PR hyphenates, others mark differently. Your last name = the families that came together to make you. AOC is also fine though :)” she added.
Over the course of the last
Ocasio-Cortez is spreading false information about Hannity, Ingraham
“You may be unsurprised to learn that this is untrue. I checked every mention of ‘Cortez’ on the Ingraham Angle in March and didn’t find [The Ingraham Angle] referring to [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] as ‘Cortez’ once. On 3/14, Rabbi Aryeh Spero said ‘Cortez and her quartet,’ but Laura never did,” Elliot responded to the Congresswoman in a Wednesday tweet.
“Just checked [Sean Hannity], whom she also accuses of this ostensible hate crime. Like Laura, Hannity did not refer to [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] as ‘Cortez’ once in the month of March (I checked every show). She’s mentioned 20x in one episode, but every time correctly,” Elliott continued.
“Unless [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] has something to back up this claim, it would seem she owes apologies to Hannity and Ingraham,” Elliott noted. “Randomly accusing people of prejudice is indecent, esp. when it will inevitably be used for more boycott fodder.”
Also, Tucker Carlson never referred to her as “Cortez” either, even though she swears he does, repeatedly. When the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host did a five-minute-plus segment on the democratic socialist Tuesday night, for example, he mentioned her name over a dozen times; he referred to her as “Ocasio-Cortez,” “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” and “AOC” (which is Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter handle). He did not once refer to her as “Cortez.”
So why does the media, who can easily verify her lies, stand down and allow her to spout hatred, vitriol, and lies continually? Besides
So for the record, and just to tick her off, we’ll call her Cortez from now on.
And Cortez, we KNOW what you are. You are a racist prevaricator. And we know what to call you, it’s just that due to our sense of decency and FCC regulations, we won’t call you what you really are.
