It's too late to work on your restaurant racism, but not too late to tweak AOC.

AOC: out there every day on the line, flunking IQ tests and proud of it.

Howard said...

Shooting fish in a barrel is way harder than finding hypocrite politicians

gilbar said...

CLEARLY, we should Continue Patroning Oriental Restaurants
She's Just Saying, that
If you're under 40, and you're healthy, and showing no symptoms
You should go there, SNEEZE on the people; and then get your food To Go

Inconstancy knows know race

Wilbur said...

She's the gift that keeps on giving.

We should be patroning her.

Fernandistein said...

AOC, what a patroon.

SteveB said...

No, no, no, no....PATRON *only* Chinese restaurants to combat racism.

David Begley said...

AOC is a superstar for today’s Dems. An honors graduate in Econ from Boston University. Biden’s EPA Administrator implementing the GND.

I can't get enough AOC. That girl has just got what it takes to advise us all on a better life. She is a proud product of our educational system. This is what a hundred thousand dollars in higher education will buy you. She is like Joe Biden without the hair plugs.

You go, girl.

A member of the government, representing the deepest part of the swamp.

Lucien said...

At least she limited her comments to NYC — but did she mean the outer boroughs too?

Rusty said...

ten years after she leaves office she'll be busted in a motel room for dealing crack and turning tricks.

Charlie said...

I've worked for a number of small companies, mainly in the printing business. If we had a staff meeting and one of the staff said "patroning", I would never take that person seriously again. Same with "expodentially".

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

AOC is a cute actress, groomed and hired by the Deep State to represent your needs.
Obey.

Wince said...

Is there any doubt AOC views different racial group, especially white people, in terms of them being viruses?

Essentially caucasian membranes found everywhere waiting for the racism held deep within their DNA to find a host situation where it is unleashed and reproduced.

Josephbleau said...

As one of our elected masters AOC needs to learn the voice of command. You don’t say “please stop going to bars.” You say “Stop going to bars, please.”

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

ot - but related. fat loser husband George Con-way jumps shark.

Char Char Binks said...

I want to see that racist bitch die from ChiCom flu. I don’t just mean I want her dead;I want to watch her die.

Marc said...

She may well be the idiot people say she is. The fact is, though, that the Internet, use of texting, dearth of copy editors, society's generalized coarsening, the badly-educated rising generation etc etc-- all of that leads to people using ridiculous neologisms or nonce words all over the readable universe. 'Coronate' is the word that comes to mind, 'so and so was coronated' instead of 'was crowned'. Tsk; I can be told until someone is blue in the face that the verb 'to coronate' was recorded in English use in 1423 and 1705 (I didn't actually look it up) and is now justifiable because, but none of it will convince me that the reason it displays so often on the Internet etc now is that people are simply untaught and unread and just don't know any better. Now off to Mass so that I can perhaps avoid becoming more cynical and judgemental than I already am.

"If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID."

Can someone explain why she included the qualifier "if you are healthy"? What is she trying to say?

Mary Beth (the commenter) said...

All restaurants are suffering based on what I've observed and based on a prominent chef in my city telling me that business is down in area restaurants. The day he told me that, I stopped by one of my favorite restaurants (which also happens to be Asian) and got a large to-go order (plus tip).

It is possible that it is hitting Asian restaurants in NYC harder than others. NYC could be a lot more racist than my city. Or maybe AOC is racist. Sometimes I wonder if a person who spots racism everywhere sees it because it confirms their own feelings, which, knowing the feelings are wrong, makes them be vocal about protesting the thing they found (or thought they found).

Her level of certainty on every topic is something to behold.

robother said...

As anyone familiar with Latin American politics knows, under the patron system, El Patron tells you who is under his (her) protection. These are the public employees (usually their relatives/lovers) you cannot touch, who discovered social distancing (aka no-show jobs). AOC is simply expanding this to restaurants and other MOB (Minority Owned Business) activities.

Patrons gonna engage in patronning. A certain contempt for the niceties of grammar enhances the thuggish vibe every Patron cultivates.

Ignatius Acton Chesterton OCD said...

I’m ready to socially distance myself from the news. This is all nuts, and the CDC is NOT helping things.

As if she's channelling some vast reservoir of omniscience.

Char Char Binks said...

Notice she didn’t say “stop GOING” to restaurants and bars, but “stop CROWDING” them. That implies that some healthy people should be there patroning, and other healthy people should stay home. Since she says this is something she personally sees, I assume the first category includes herself and people like her.

Ken B said...

The grammar is the least of her errors.

Tina Trent said...

Those AMAZON jobs she drove away are probably looking better and better.

rcocean said...

Ok to patronize Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Greek restaurants - otherwise "Racism"

rehajm said...

An honors graduate in Econ from Boston University

She had a minor in economics from BU. She's hasn't detailed which classes she attended- I tried to find out. I did learn at pone point, if not currently, you can/could obtain an econ minor at BU without taking micro/macro, but rather some combination of the 'modern' econ classes relating to climate change, racism, sexism, inequality and other leftie oriented topics...

...also of note is AOC is being primaried by at least one person, Michelle Caruso Cabrera. I am literally paying money to try and see that debate...

Curious George said...

As Dave Attell said "but those tits aren't retarded."

Fernandistein said...

I want to watch her die.

Like that old song almost says,

I stood within arms length of AOC for more than ten minutes in Reno,
Just to watch her die.

Skeptical Voter said...

That's a nice video clip of AOC. Everytime she turns her head to the right and rolls her eyes toward the ceiling, I like to imagine that she is thinking (or praying) "Please God give me some brains so I don't sound like a blithering idiot".

I do believe that her prayers remain unanswered.

Tina Trent said...

Starve a fever feed a cold? Or feed a cold starve a fever?

Temujin said...

Not to be too dark, but I have to say that nature has a way of 'culling the herd' from time to time. Those who look to AOC for direction on their lives during this tricky time, or even on a perfectly sunny spring day with no viruses in the air, are probably more susceptible to nature's work.

daskol said...

Restaurants are just below grocery stores in terms of critical infrastructure in this city. Don't think only of the fancy chef places, but the far more numerous storefront ethnic restaurants that are the de facto kitchens for many people living in crowded apartments. Most restaurants are not for the well off in NYC, as the economics of "dining out" are very different in a city where ordering from a hole in the wall place costs similar to buying ingredients and preparing food at home.

Seamus said...

While AOC using "patron" as a verb is just the latest manifestation of her vacuous mind, I've always thought the verb "patronize" a little funny. Sure, I know it's a perfectly good word meaning to give one's custom to (a business), but hearing it makes me imagine someone patting the owner on the head and telling him or her, in a slightly high-pitched voice, "Oh, did you make this restaurant all by yourself? You should be really proud of yourself. You've done such a good job with it. Oh, and look at the clever fonts on the menu!"

elkh1 said...

If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID.
If you are sick, you are ok to crowd bars...

Shame on Brooklyners, you really hate us so much that you put this in-your-face woman in our faces.

The word is Asymptomatic, not healthy.

I am getting really tired of Go Fish and Old Maid.

I think she needs just a pinch more emptiness.

I thought it was interesting, that AOC is a paid actor who responded to a casting
call by the Justice Democrats, aka the democratic socialists of America (DSA)
.

i hadn't heard of the concept of "casting calls" for congressmen before

“Ken B said...

This. In a throwaway social media era, playing grammar Nazi just means you’re beclowning yourself by making a show of taking trivial shit seriously. Or noting it at all. That’s Inga-level thinking. Serious people are looking at the substance of what she says and thinking that, well, grammar is the least of her errors.

Char Char Binks said...

Temujin, that was too dark. Delete, edit, and resubmit, please.

I'm just going to leave this here.

This is not what is happening. AOC and the rest of you leftist are not a hypocrites.

You are very very consistent.

It is what you are consistent about that is fucked up.

The best AOC clip I've seen recently is the one where she's lecturing people about how to handle the corona virus, including not touching your face, and while she's talking, she touches her own face at least 10 times.

People need to watch themselves on videotape.

If you chew gum video tape yourself. Watch the video.

You will stop chewing gum.

daskol said...

Canasta is complicated for a 5 year old. With the older ones, XBOX and in particular XBOX live with their friends keeps them busy, and I'm starting to get pretty good at Madden 2020.

LaRosa is correct. There are allegations of diversity from central and non-profit corporate sources, a resolution, and an inconsistent followup. Surely, a double-edged scalpel, a case of planned baby and keeping her, too.

PM said...

I love how she admitted it was "so silly to say..." then she said it.
