Nothing makes conservatives lose their tenuous grip on reality faster than Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Due to some combination of her youth, gender, and bold progressive agenda, they appear to both hate her and be secretly attracted to her all at once. It’s a disgusting Freudian concoction that drives them all insane and leads them to do desperate things like post videos of her dancing in college and obsess over her dark past as a cookie-selling Girl Scout.
The latest conservative stalker-boi to shoot his shot at AOC was Daily Wire contributor Brad Devlin who keenly observed that Ocasio-Cortez had “Liked” an article on Twitter about Fox News and objected by clutching his pearls so hard they burst.
The widely-shared article, by Luke O’Neill, was titled “I hate what they’ve done to almost everyone in my family” and was about how Fox News hurts families by brainwashing uncle after uncle with their twisted agenda.
Sitting Congresswoman @AOC liked a recent opinion by @lukeoneil47.— Brad Devlin (@bradleydevlin) April 6, 2019
It says @FoxNews has “kidnapped and brainwashed many of our otherwise lovely and kind family members and I’ll piss on their graves one day with a huge fucking boner that makes it hard for the piss to come out.” pic.twitter.com/0EhM4wojVe
But Devlin’s gripe wasn’t with the thesis of the article but rather with a luridly hilarious sentence in O’Neill’s opening paragraph in which he fantasizes about pissing on Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly’s graves one day “with a huge fucking boner that makes it hard for the piss to come out[.]”
Acting like a junior member of the Twitter Police Devlin tagged both O’Neill and Ocasio-Cortez in an apparent attempt to either shame the Congresswoman for the audacious act of “Liking” a tweet, or simply a deep-seated desire to talk about her and boners in the same breath.
First of all the act of “Liking” a tweet on Twitter does not imply endorsement or agreement. A “Like” can be used to bookmark an article for later reading or simply to boost the work of an author whether you’ve read their piece or not.
She liked the tweet, so of course a Daily Wire contributor would claim that she liked his opinion and that the specific opinion is a sentence not seen in the tweet she liked.— Cody Johnston (@drmistercody) April 6, 2019
Studies show Fox News makes you less informed.
The president retweets Qanon and fascist propaganda.
But whether AOC read and agreed with the article or not is very much besides the point. The story here is how deeply silly the conservative obsession with the Congresswoman has become.
AOC is being attacked for “Liking” a tweet.
Needless to say the only one who embarrassed themselves in this interaction was Bradley himself who really tweeted himself in the foot.
in other words, AOC is cool as hell https://t.co/YO5QX3ggB4— Sophie Weiner (@sophcw) April 7, 2019

The fact that you are expressing more concern about the rude word than the underlying issue raised says a lot about you. I would tell you what some of these things are, but they involve rude words and today you are pretending to care about that. https://t.co/b3WTpXuE6u— Doctor at the End of the Book (@skipbidder) April 7, 2019
cry about it— jordan (@JordanUhl) April 7, 2019
you almost gotta admire the brazen disregard for consistency going from supporting a guy who is unapologetically offensive and made it part of his campaign to freaking out over aoc liking a tweet that contained a link that contained one blue line. really impressive.— jordan (@JordanUhl) April 7, 2019
Clutching pearls over a verifiable fact followed by a great line. https://t.co/DgjI1rVhK0— justin glawe (@JustinGlawe) April 6, 2019
Never thought I'd say this but let him up. He's had enough. https://t.co/sRSciOoqK9— luke oneil (@lukeoneil47) April 7, 2019
