Aoc Accent : ‘I am from the Bronx,’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in response to claims she used a ‘fake’ accent. ‘I Act and Speak Like It’
Aoc Pronouncing Her Own Name
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke at the National Action Network convention on Friday, and she attracted equal amounts of acclaim and criticism for her message about taking pleasure in your work.
Through her address, Ocasio-Cortez, a first-term Democrat from the Bronx, sent a message to the working class, emphasising that any labour is good work.
“Ain’t nothing wrong with it,” she proclaimed as she remembered on her days as a “proud” bartender.
“There’s nothing wrong with folding clothes for people to buy,” Ocasio-Cortez remarked.
“It is quite OK to prepare the cuisine that your neighbours will consume. There’s nothing wrong with driving your family’s school buses to work.
There is nothing wrong with working in the United States of America, and it is a perfectly respectable occupation.”
It wasn’t so much her pitch as it was her delivery that got people talking about the speech on social media. Several detractors of Ocasio-Cortez said she used a “false African American accent” or a “fake Southern accent” at the convention, which apparently drew a high number of African Americans.
Before the sun set in New York on Friday, Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Twitter.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): “I’m honoured to work as a bartender. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working in a retail establishment… There’s nothing wrong with making food for your neighbours.”
“In the United States of America, there is nothing wrong with being a working person.”
“I am from the Bronx, as much as the right likes to twist and divert. When I’m fired up and especially when I’m at home, I act and talk like it “Ocasio-Cortez sent out a tweet.
“It’s very upsetting to witness how every facet of my life is used against me while also being asserted as fake.”
I am from the Bronx, as much as the right likes to twist and deflect. When I’m heated up, and especially when I’m at home, I act and talk like it.
It’s so painful to witness how every facet of my life is being used against me while also being declared as fake.
“People who are complaining about my voice should leave now. The Women’s March and Brett Kavanaugh’s speech were both held on the same day.
Anyone who has tried to negotiate class environments at school or work while growing up in a different language culture understands what’s going on. It’s the same with my Spanish. These rumour mills are [garbage].”
People who are commenting about my voice should leave now. The Women’s March and Brett Kavanaugh’s speech were both held on the same day.
Anyone who was up in a different linguistic culture and had to learn to navigate school/work environments knows what I’m talking about. It’s the same with my Spanish.
Twitter users voiced their displeasure with the congresswoman before she could defend herself.
Changing your accent to sound like a black person is nasty, demeaning, and racist on so many levels.
The idea that black people are incapable of comprehending a topic unless spoken to with an accent is nasty and perverted. You should be ashamed of yourself.
While assuring a room of mostly black people that there is nothing wrong with them folding clothes, cooking, and driving other people around on a bus for a living, AOC adopts a new accent.
Democrats would have a kanipshin if a Republican employed a phoney African American accent while talking to black people, telling them it’s okay to fold clothes, cook, and drive other people about, as AOC did.
Do you think so? The stupidity irritates me. Her false accent, as well as the reality that foolish marxists like her would keep people poor and obedient to the government by design, should offend black people.
According to its website, Rev. Al Sharpton founded the National Action Network in 1991 to “promote a modern civil rights agenda that includes the battle for one standard of justice, decency, and equal opportunities for all people.”
President Donald Trump made a joke about the Democrats’ planned Green New Deal, a major climate change, social justice, and jobs package that Ocasio-Cortez introduced in the House, earlier this week.
At a fundraiser on Tuesday, President Trump stated, “The Green New Deal was done by a young bartender, 29 years old.”
“The Green New Deal, a young bartender, a gorgeous young woman. ‘That’s the weirdest thing,’ I said the first time I heard it.”
The Trump wants Republicans to keep the Green New Deal alive rather than kill it so that he may fight against it in 2020.
