(RoyalPatriot.com )- Back when she first joined the House in 2019, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked by Democrat House leadership to lead a tutorial instructing other Democrat members on “the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter.”
In short, the Democrats wanted AOC to teach other Democrats how to act like AOC on Twitter.
This should have been seen as a big, red flag.
The Democrat Party is woefully out of touch with regular Americans in large part because it decided to focus on “social media engagement.”
Not long ago, Pew Research conducted a study on the ideological make-up of Twitter users. It found that the social media platform is more left-wing than the bluest Congressional district in the country.
So not only does Twitter not reflect real life, but it is also so ideologically skewed, it doesn’t even reflect the most left-leaning places in America.
Despite this, Democrats have tailored their agenda to appeal to the skewed demographics on Twitter. They have become so hyper-focused on retweets from the leftwing denizens on Twitter that they have completely lost touch with what matters to actual Americans.
Now we’re stuck with so-called “adult” legislators hungrily trolling for retweets by issuing snarky “clap-backs” at Republicans, mocking parents who want a say in their children’s education, and completely underestimating the growing anger over Biden’s disastrous presidency.
If Democrats were capable of shame, they’d be mortified by their obsession with Twitter.
But Democrats are incapable of shame.
That’s why they are willing to reduce themselves to snarky girls making juvenile jokes on Twitter.
But he who lives by Twitter dies by Twitter.
Case in point, California Congressman Eric Swalwell.
Last week, Swalwell decided to tweet a “joke” about the Beijing Olympics, and it didn’t go the way he planned.
In a tweet last Monday, Swalwell wanted his Twitter followers to “put aside” China’s human rights violations, economic espionage, and censorship. Instead, he pointed out that it was absurd for China to host the Winter Olympics because there isn’t any snow “on the damn mountains.”
Only a moron would use China’s human rights violations to set up a lame joke.
But that isn’t what blew up in Swalwell’s face.
Instead, Twitter users pointed out Swalwell’s awkward connection to China, namely his kanoodling with a Chinese spy named Fang Fang.
The mockery was so intense, in no time, “Fang Fang” began trending on Twitter.
If Eric Swalwell had any sense, he’d avoid the subject of China. But he doesn’t have the sense God gave a goat. Instead, his obsession with Twitter engagement has rendered him incapable of thinking things through.
