WORD GAMES: AOC Says Term ‘Woke’ Being Used as ‘Derogatory Euphemism for Civil Rights’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.08.21

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended her far-left policies despite the Democrats’ disastrous election defeat last week; complaining the term “woke” is being used as a “derogatory euphemism for civil rights.”

“One dangerous aspect of thinking there’s a ‘woke problem’ is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights,” she tweeted Sunday. “Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses.”

“‘Woke’ is a term pundits are now using as a derogatory euphemism for civil rights & justice,” Ocasio-Cortez added in a follow-up tweet. “Making up a ‘woke’ problem results in putting civil & voting rights on the backburner. In a year state legislatures are planning out GOP majorities & voter suppression, that’s dangerous.”

 

A new survey from USA Today spells big trouble for Joe Biden, with data showing half of Americans think his presidency is “worse than expected” and nearly two-third don’t want to see him run again in 2024.

“A year before the 2022 midterm elections, Republicans hold a clear lead on the congressional ballot as President Joe Biden’s approval rating sinks to a new low of 38%,” writes USA Today. “A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll, taken Wednesday through Friday, found that Biden’s support cratered among the independent voters who delivered his margin of victory over President Donald Trump one year ago.”

“Nearly half of those surveyed, 46%, say Biden has done a worse job as president than they expected, including 16% of those who voted for him. Independents, by 7-1 (44%-6%), say he’s done worse, not better, than they expected,” adds the outlet. “Nearly two-thirds of Americans, 64%, say they don’t want Biden to run for a second term in 2024. That includes 28% of Democrats. Opposition to Trump running for another term in 2024 stands  at 58%, including 24% of Republicans.”
