New And Old Democrat Women Fight For The Spotlight In Hilarious Ways
Published : January 8, 2019
The American Spice Girls pose as members of the 116th Congress. Several of the newly sworn in freshman (sorry, freshwoman) class have told all of us what they want, what they really, really want. In fact, they will not stop telling us what they want. But one of the many problems, is that what they want is not germane to the American people whom they are supposed to represent.
In just the last week there have been plenty of examples from members of “Squad,” “Dream Team,” and/or “Sister Sister,” just to name a few of the self-promoted names of these women. Perhaps the most vocal of the new bunch (trying not to be sexist here) is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Notorious AOC. And with a name like that, it is no wonder she has the honor of being called Extra Spice. She is so extra, that in the span of but a few days, she showed the world that she truly wants to be a Spice Girl.
There is not one crumb of critique of Extra Spice’s moves, because Lord knows most all of us cannot dance like that. Plus, she was in college just having a bit of fun. But, in a ploy of her own, Ocasio-Cortez released a new video of her dancing outside her new office.
And this provokes the question: what is she good for? As just one of the many inconceivable proposals she has touted, the latest is her plan to pay for the Green New Deal, which involves the super wealthy, or tippy tops, paying upwards of 70 percent in taxes.
“People are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes,” Ocasio-Cortez told interviewer Anderson Cooper. (Watch the entire interview here to get an accurate portrayal of what Ocasio-Cortez is good for.) And if after watching the interview you decide to critique her ideas, be prepared to be hit with a 100 percent misogyny tax.
But another Spice Girl may be trying to steal the limelight, and that of course is fellow Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib, or Mama Spice, who announced that she talks to her son with the use of expletives.
"And when your son looks at you and says, 'Mama look, you won. Bullies don't win,' and I said, 'Baby, they don't,' because we're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf***er," Tlaib said to members of progressive group MoveOn just hours after being sworn in as representative from Michigan.
That is one proud Mama Spice. The motherf***er whom she is referring, is none other than her inspiration: Donald Trump. It was Trump’s election which was used as the “bat signal” for women to run in 2018, according to Tlaib.
And just like Ocasio-Cortez, if you dare to challenge the idea, she will double down and claim high moral ground.
“I will always speak truth to power. #UnapologeticallyMe,” Tlaib tweeted.
The problem is that Tlaib will speak her truth to get her power, or the power her and friends, like Linda Sarsour, desire. That helps to explain why Tlaib’s congressional office decided to redecorate the new digs, altering a map on the wall so that Israel is covered by a sticky note saying “Palestine.” This is their truth, not the truth.
And since there is speaking of truth and power, the one-and-only Nancy Pelosi, or Old Spice, must be addressed. After all, she reclaimed the speakership in the House of Representatives and has been speaking her truth for years, resulting in the same drawn out swampy results of nothingness. In 2007 she said it was time for a new America. In 2019 she says it is time for a new dawn. It seems this new dawn includes more of the same, like not accepting facts as fact, especially when they pertain to border security and are presented by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. But that is how Pelosi does things.
“She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding,” new America as spoken by her own daughter, Alexandra Pelosi.
While a smidge hyperbolic and rather graphic, this is exactly how Old Spice conducts business. This is why it was no surprise when within a half second of taking back the gavel, she put forth the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019, which included funding Planned Parenthood so more babies can be murdered.
All of these Spice Girls, and several others, have been shouting about inequality and how rigged the system is against women. None of them have taken a moment to be self aware and check their own privilege as they were sworn in as members of the 116th Congress. They should take that moment and listen to the beloved 1996 Spice Girls song, which asks “Who Do You Think You Are?”
