Progressive Sole: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Shoes to be Displayed in Exhibit at Cornell

“….Ocasio-Cortez’s shoes were a good representation of the 2018 Biennial theme, ‘Duration: Passage, Persistence, Survival.'”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is enjoying the sort of hero worship by Democrats and the media not seen since Obama. She can do no wrong in their eyes, and every aspect of her must be celebrated. Even the shoes she campaigned in are now going to get special treatment.

Amina Kilpatrick reports at the Cornell Daily Sun:

Cornell Exhibit to Feature Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Shoes, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Collars

Worn and scuffed with cracks and holes in them, the shoes that Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wore campaigning will be shown at Cornell in an exhibit beginning Dec. 6.

The exhibit, entitled “Women Empowered: Fashions From the Frontline” will feature clothing items that represent women’s empowerment. The exhibit is part of the biennial celebration that the Cornell Council for the Arts has held throughout the fall semester.

After winning the primary election in June 2018, Ocasio-Cortez explained on her Twitter the significance of the shoes to her. In her viral tweet, she used the shoes as an example of the hard work she put into campaigning.

“Here’s my 1st pair of campaign shoes,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I knocked doors until rainwater came through my soles. Respect the hustle. We won bc we out-worked the competition. Period.”

Curator of the exhibit, Prof. Denise Green, fiber science and apparel design, said Ocasio-Cortez’s shoes were a good representation of the 2018 Biennial theme, “Duration: Passage, Persistence, Survival,” and are unique to the exhibit since worn clothing items are not often displayed.

See Cortez’s tweet below:

The Hill notes that the shoes are becoming “part of history.”

FOX News had the audacity to discuss this subject recently without showing the proper level of respect, so now they’re the negative aspect of this story. Cortez, who went so far as to tweet an image of the shoes with the line “respect the hustle” is angry that people noticed.

Keith McMillan writes at the Washington Post:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trolls Fox News in Spanish

A Friday night show on Fox News used its closing segment to praise and poke fun at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but on Twitter, the congresswoman-elect laughed last.

Ed Henry hosted “The Story” on Friday night, when he and three panelists discussed how a pair of Ocasio-Cortez’s shoes are set to go on display at Cornell University, in its “Women Empowered: Fashions from the Frontline” exhibit. A Twitter user pointed out to the Democrat from New York that a four-person discussion about her shoes was taking place on prime-time television.

“No, no es amor/ Lo que tú sientes, se llama obsesión,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. The lyrics to Obsesión, by Aventura, translate to, “No, it’s not love, what you feel is called obsession.”

After another user asked whether she was really going to make Fox hire a translator to read the tweet, Ocasio-Cortez took her shot:

“Don’t worry, Fox News has made it clear that they are far superior to + more intelligent than me, who they’ve called a ‘little, simple person,’” she wrote. “So I’m sure catching up to me in spoken languages shouldn’t be a problem for them.”

And just think. This is only the beginning.

Credit where credit is due. Ocasio-Cortez (incidentally shouldn’t she feel some kind of guilt being a descendant of conquistadors who pretty much wiped out the indigenous culture of Mexico, asking for a friend) took advantage of a Dem who thought all he needed to do was get his name on the ballot to ensure his lifetime appointment to the House based on the fact that his district was D +99.9. He didn’t take into account that there might be a Dem in the wings who wasn’t going to wait her turn. She campaigned, he didn’t.

Having said all that, this woman is dumber than a box of hammers and somehow this whole shoe thing reminds me of Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Now that one faction has her shoe, I’m waiting for her gourd to make its appearance.

Straight out of Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”.

“The gourd is the sign!”

Certainly appropriate since most of her ideas seem to come from her shoes.

Zippers. Because tying a knot is hard.

“The exhibit, entitled ‘Women Empowered: Fashions From the Frontline’ will feature clothing items that represent women’s empowerment.”

It’ll be quite interesting to learn the owners of all those push-up bras which make their way into the exhibit.

Great Adlai Stevenson’s Ghost! There’s nothing new under the sun.

Including the Rush Limbaugh pronouncement that politics is merely show business for ugly people.

Why not bronze them? Since she has the mental acuity and knowledge of a two year old.

Have at ’em. I’m not that into feet.

Have people gone nuts?

This twit was mixing cocktails one year ago (nothing against mixologists) — but, now that she’s ensconced in government, we’re supposed to treat her ceaseless, inane utterances on every issue under the Sun as alleged sagacity? It’s absurd.

Becoming a Dumb-o-crat politician is the refuge for shiftless dolts such as Obama, Sanders, Cortez et al. who are unable or unwilling to accomplish anything of substance in the private sector.

I have only one response to this: Wait…what?

So far it doesn’t appear that O-C has much interest in being a party loyalist. If she can’t be at least a useful idiot, Pelosi is going to have a hard time managing this twit.

I wish her continued success in being elected. She is the gaff that keeps on giving, and the nice thing is she represents the stupid and ignorant people well, since she is one of them.

I know some people call the Republican party the stupid party due to the lack of getting things done and shooting themselves in the foot, but given the mental midgets in the Democrat party, such as Cortez and Mad Maxine and Cummings and Pelosi, just to name a few of many, it seems to me the left have worked very hard to earn the Stupid Party title. But hey, free stuff that can’t be paid for is a great bribe for getting votes, it cannot be their ideas or platform which is hate, socialism, and get rid of Trump.

I half feel like going to see these shoes, not to honor them, but to mock the idiots who have enshrined them. Dear lord this country is getting pathetic. And little Occluded Cortex is giving Obama a run for the level of narcissism both suffer from.

Particularly appropriate for us to be talking about putting her shoes on display, given that in the past week she made an inappropriate reference to the Holocaust. If she does ever make it to the Holocaust Museum in DC, she can walk through the final exhibit. Those of you who’ve been there will understand the reference…

    I bet she would say.. “See…I am just like them” .

    You beat me to it. It is really creepy that such an anti-Semite would use the symbol, though I doubt she’s smart enough to make the connection. It’s all about skateboards and saxophones and be’n hip ‘n cool and getting down with the cool kids.

    Aging lefties think “If I act like a child, then I’m still young and vibrant”, rather than, “There is no fool like an old fool”.

This appears to confirm AOC is not Imelda Marcos. Don’t forget Senator Patty Murray from Washington State campaigned in sneakers. I guess AOC wishes a counter-culture to FLOTUS?

Far above Cayuga’s waters,
There’s a funny smell,
Some say it’s Cayuga’s waters,
Some say it’s Cornell.

Rotting timbers, Moldy limestone,
Stinking, dime-store booze,
Choke you on that fragrant odor,
O-C’s two left shoes.

I thought Alexandria was a parody of what SJW Universities are churning out, but her professors insist she passionately pursued extra credits and performed above and beyond their expectations.

I just can’t figure out how someone with “Great Oratory. Highly Recommended” notations throughout her college transcripts keeps flubbing on tv.

    >> 1st of all, that’s false. We won w/voters of all kinds. <<

    That is like saying "We have both kinds of music, country AND western. She probably thinks that demographics are pictures drawn by democrats.

    I hope each of her press conferences has at least one question from introductory economics. "What is M?" "M is a fashion model who chose her name based on the success of the fashion model L." Next?

    and performed above and beyond their expectations.

    That’s a pretty low bar. One could say the same thing about the winner of the turtle races.

    They misspoke. As in, she pursued “extra credit” to pass her classes. These parasites are all over academia and think they deserve the passing grade as much as someone who worked harder and succeeded legitimately.

Meanwhile, ask any Lefty to name the first female to manage a presidential campaign who also happened to pull off the most stunning political upset in American History.

Another one from the Dem squirrel factory.

They could exhibit her brain, she doesn’t use it anymore either although there is definitely a lot less wear and tear than is on her shoes.

Stupidity as performance art.

If the shoe fits, wear it.

Cinderella, she ain’t.

Her abnormally tiny brain would make a more interesting exhibit.
