I saw this on Twitter:

I had to read the whole Washington Post interview.
That may be, but I don’t trust her analysis of the topic.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has been a member of Congress for less than two weeks, and already she has become a favorite target for the right.
That’s because what she says is either straight out of the Socialist handbook or factually wrong – usually both.
The Post: Some people would say there is a flavor of misogyny to how you’ve been treated on the right. Do you agree?
Ocasio-Cortez: Absolutely. Absolutely. I think it’s interesting because what I consider to be my greatest strength, which is the intersectionality of our message, is I think the thing that triggers them the most.
It’s now misogyny to point out the she’s factually wrong on what she says, vague on the details of how to push her economic ideas, and likes to hang out with radical Jew haters.
And yes, the fact is Intersectionality is poison. The rise of Trump was evidence of that. Americans are getting tired of the oppression Olympics and being called out for their privilege while they try to make ends meet.
The Post: I was talking with Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), and he said that he feels like conservative media is setting you up to be another boogeyman on the left.
Ocasio-Cortez: Absolutely. They need a foil because they have nothing that they advance on their own. When you actually think about what the Republican agenda is, they have no vision for America. The Republican vision for America is dystopic. The Republican vision for our future is negative. It’s saying, ‘All of the people who are not like you are a danger and we need to protect ourselves from the danger. We need to build walls, we need to lock ’em up, we need to lock everything down.’ But there’s nothing about the Republican ideology that is about wealth-building or prosperity for the working class.
First of all, I think that’s wrong. That is the point of view of the Leftist who sees the Conservative position as motivated entirely by hatred because Conservatives are inherently evil. This will make it impossible for her to ever negotiate in good faith or compromise.
The Post: Why would they see you personally as a threat?
Ocasio-Cortez: Because I fight back. I don’t know what they say, but I think they are attracted to conflict. They need a foil. I don’t think they see that they’re losing the war. They’re making all these battles, but they’re losing the war. Because they’re playing old-school politics, like, “Oh, I’m sorry, you think that faking a nude photo is going to take a woman down in 2019? Think again, brother.”
I had to look the nude thing up. An anonymous user dumped a fake nude of her on Reddit. I couldn’t find one Republican politician who talked about it, let alone posted it on social media.
Keep in mind, this was done by the Left to Dana Loesch to delegitimize her after the CNN two-hour hate.
The Post: How did you feel when that hit yesterday?
Ocasio-Cortez: I was surprised and I was annoyed because it was a new tack. They’ve been for a very long time focusing on taking quotes out of context or manipulating them or making it seem as though I said things that I didn’t say. This was different in that it was an outright fraudulent thing. You can tell that they’re getting into hysterics because now you’re getting into my actual body, which is definitely crossing a level, definitely crossing a line.
Some anonymous Reddit user is now the whole of the GOP. Boy that is a victim complex.
I also think it’s encouraging because this is my sixth day in Congress and they’re out of all their artillery. The nude is supposed to be like the bazooka. You know, like, “We’re going to take her down.” Dude, you’re all out of bullets, you’re all out of bombs, you’re all out of all this stuff. What have you got left? I’m six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo.
What? The only “attacks” I’ve seen of her from elected Republicans or reputable Conservative pundits is in regards to her friendly pictures with radical Jew haters or the fact that she is pushing a technologically infeasible, economically impossible, Green New Deal that would cost America trillions without any way of actually paying for it. That and imposing a tax rate on people that would only serve to quash investment.
So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.
To run [a] train is a sexual act in which multiple men have intercourse with a woman in a row, one right after the other.
What she said here was pretty clear “We Congressional Progressives are going to take turns fucking America raw with our Progressive agenda and there is nothing you can do to stop it.”
That is a hell of a statement from a Member of Congress, especially a freshman.
Also, if Trump said the same thing, every Progressive would be hysterical, screaming that he admitted to being a gang rapist.
I’m feeling very #MeToo right now, being told that I am going to be gang banged against my will by people who don’t see me as a person.
If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.
