(PatriotWise.com)- New York Magazine announced last week that it will be releasing a book of essays in praise of the dopey socialist Congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The 400-page book “Take Up Space: The Unprecedented AOC” is set for release on February 1. And it is a gushing, slobbering hagiography of the Left’s favorite Social Media Celebrity.
As nauseating as the idea is, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. As a member of the House of Representatives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will leave no mark on history. In April, she was rated one of the least effective legislators for a reason.
But as the carefully-crafted media sensation, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might have some lasting notoriety.
It bears noting that Ocasio-Cortez effectively auditioned for the role of “progressive Democrat challenger.” She’s an actress, nothing more. And it isn’t uncommon for publishers to crank out celebrity books geared toward fans.
Even the book’s description on Amazon reveals that AOC isn’t getting this treatment because she is a consequential American politician; she’s getting it because of her social media celebrity. The book description gushes that AOC has “millions of followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, making headlines consistently when she utilizes each platform to communicate her opinions, ideas, and progressive policies.”
She’s not a politician; she’s just an actress who plays a politician on social media.
The “book” is essentially an expensive “fanzine.” It features glowing essays from New York Magazine’s staff writers on a range of completely ridiculous topics – like how AOC’s beauty impacts her public perception and “a contextual look at her place in the history of the American left.” And naturally, an essay touting her “greatest hits” on social media.
The book will also feature “a deep dive on ‘The Squad’” as well as “a lighthearted piece on the ‘total average-ness of her boyfriend.’”
Good grief. How embarrassing. She’s a member of Congress, not Madonna. Hard to believe this drivel is being written by adults and not teenage girls with posters of AOC hanging from their bedroom walls.
