That said it’s no secret that the secret word these days is “AOC” because whenever the name of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is uttered conservatives lose their collective minds and start babbling nonsensically.
Such was the case in print form when conservative columnist Jane Chastain penned a rage-bait piece bizarrely suggesting people should boycott Girl Scout cookies because Ocasio-Cortez is a former member of the organization.
In a column titled “AOC Was A Girl Scout…Just Say No To The Cookies” Chastain argues that the informal holiday International Women’s Day has been taken over by “radical feminists” and has aligned itself with the once-noble Girl Scouts of America, who have, in turn, strayed too far from the light of God, saying:
“Today’s Girl Scouts are a far cry from those of my youth, which trained us to put God and country before everything else. Today, God in the Girl Scout promise has an asterisk, meaning the great I AM and His moral absolutes can be replaced by anything, including oneself.”
She then bizarrely criticizes the Girl Scouts for “celebrating the victory” of former Scouts like Ocasio-Cortez, decries the fact that the majority of former Girl Scouts in Congress are Democrats, and warns people off those nefarious commie cookies, saying:
“So before you decide to embrace an International Women’s Day celebration or buy the cookies, ask yourself, “Will the country be better off with more representatives like the young socialist Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez?””
“If not, it’s a good time to start your diet.”
Yeah it makes no sense.
Ocasio-Cortez was quick to react (and to troll) her latest critic.

She didn’t stop there, also promoting the organization.

The sheer insanity of this latest criticism had people spitting out their Thin Mints in shock.

I'll bet they don't boycott alcohol because you were a bartender.— Dave Hogg (@stareagle) March 7, 2019
If this is true, conservatives need to really learn how to boycott effectively. AOC was a Girl Scout. She is not now. She's not selling Girl Scout cookies. She doesn't get paid by the Girl Scouts. This is like burning down a house she where she attended a party 20 some years ago https://t.co/Y7hi4a0xAG— Jim Kohl (@jimkohl) March 7, 2019
So, conservatives will boycott an organization that builds up girls? How fucking stupid can they get? https://t.co/iALym4quwv— Kelly ?=?? (@NotThatKellyAnn) March 7, 2019

And while many were baffled, others saw it as yet another reason to buy more delicious cookies.
