Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) played the victim card as she complained on Friday about the backlash she faced after she spoke to an audience of predominantly black people in an accent — which sparked widespread accusations that her remarks were racist and patronizing.
The normal speaking voice of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez uses inflections consistent with someone raised in the northeast part of the United States. Her particular accent is a mixture of a little New York, a little Jersey, and a weird little dash of southern California. And let’s face it, for a ‘latina’ she sounds a lot like a white girl. Yet when she gave a talk to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in NYC the other day, she suddenly sounded like she was from the south, and attempting what many would consider a crude racial stereotype of a black person talking. Hmm…now where I have seen this before?
Ohhhh, that’s right, now I remember. Hillary Rodham is another one who like to employ various racial dialects when speaking to people of other races. Isn’t it funny how Liberals who are sooooo obsessed with race have zero issue appropriating the vocal inflections of the people the are attempting to pander to when playing politics. I wonder if AOC carries hot sauce in her purse. Oh well, At least she didn’t give the speech in blackface.
‘SO HURTFUL’: Ocasio-Cortez Whines Over Backlash For Using Accent In Front Of Black Audience
FROM THE DAILY WIRE: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who often refers to Republicans as racists, white supremacists, and xenophobes — complained that is was “so hurtful” that people would call her out for the way she talked to black audience members.
“Folks talking about my voice can step right off,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same. Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up. My Spanish is the same way. These conspiracy mills are [garbage emoji].”
“As much as the right wants to distort & deflect, I am from the Bronx,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I act & talk like it, *especially* when I’m fired up and especially when I’m home. It is so hurtful to see how every aspect of my life is weaponized against me, yet somehow asserted as false at the same time.”
“This is what organizing looks like, this is what building power looks like, this is what changing the country looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a southern accent while speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York City.
“I’m proud to be a bartender, ain’t nothin wrong with that,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s response to her latest controversy was riddled with factual inaccuracies, which is common for Ocasio-Cortez, who claimed in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that it was more important to be “morally right” than “being precisely, factually and semantically correct.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to suggest that she spoke the same way in a speech she gave at the anti-Semitic Women’s March and at a speech she gave about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Ocasio-Cortez did not appear to use the same accent at any point in either of the two speeches. READ MORE
The Vocal Stylings Of Hillary Rodham Clinton
Don’t worry, AOC, you are certainly not the first Democrat to try and ‘speak black’ when giving a speech to predominantly black audiences. One of the early trailblazers in this is Hillary Rodham Clinton, who takes personality mirroring to a whole new level.
