Ocasio-Cortez Comments On Fox News’ Coverage Of Her, Insults Everyone Who Doesn’t Speak Spanish

Newly elected Dem-socialist Ocasio-Cortez is going to be a hoot to cover the next few years cuz, she really steps in it, a lot.

Cortez, who just yesterday claimed that we need a “Green New Deal” so people don’t die from climate change, later commented about a panel on Fox News that was apparently talking about her shoes.

Andrew Pestano, a digital editor at Telemundo 51, tweeted “@FoxNews has a four-person panel talking about @Ocasio2018’s shoes in primetime.” He put a facepalm emoji at the end.

Pestano later posted a screenshot of the Fox panel & Cortez’ shoes. Apparently the ones she wore during her campaign will be featured in a museum.

Cortez replied in Spanish.

The Microsoft translation of her tweet is “No, it’s not love/What you feel, it’s called Obsession.”

OK, so, you want to Tweet something in Spanish, no big deal. It was what she said after that got her in hot water.

Cortez Tweeted: “(For our monolingual friends, just play Mariah Carey’s “Obsessed” here instead)”

So, basically she said, if you don’t speak Spanish, or, if you only speak English, play this Mariah Carey song to understand what I just Tweeted.

I looked up the Mariah Carey song, Obsessed, and the phrase she tweeted isn’t in the song’s lyrics. Apparently she just made up a new song in Spanish on the spot.

At any rate, Cortez caught flak for implying that everyone who is bilingual knows & understands Spanish. Basically, she said, “if you’re bilingual your second language is Spanish.” As if the second language couldn’t be German, or Russian, or whatever.

And the responses rolled in.

One Twitter user wrote:

“What if we speak three languages, but Spanish just happens not to be one of them? Are we still “monolingual” in your book? Grow up a little.”

And another:

“A person can be multilingual and not speak Spanish.”

And yet another:

“There are more than two languages by the way.”


And there was this exchange:

So was Cortez purposefully insulting everyone who doesn’t speak or understand Spanish as if she were better than they are? I dunno. It sure could be taken that way, though.

I’ll just refer Cortez to the great Teddy Roosevelt regarding language.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Teddy got that right!

Share this if you’re proud to be an English speaking American! Murica!
