AOC Went To DeSantistan, and All She Got Was This Lousy Covid

AOC Went To DeSantistan, and All She Got Was This Lousy Covid

We wish her a speedy recovery and hope she enjoys her new-found natural immunity for many years to come.

During the New Year holiday, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ditched the locked-down, vax passport-demanding, mask-mandated Big Apple to ring in the New Year in Free Florida.

She was caught dining and drinking in Florida without the mask. There are also several photographs of her dancing with and hugging fans at a drag bar.

Somewhere between the Big Apple and the Drag Bar she became infected with SARS-Cov-2 and has come done with COVID-19.

The Bronx Representative, 32, made the announcement on her official Twitter page Sunday night, sharing a statement on House of Representatives headed paper which said: ‘Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19.

‘She is experiencing symptoms and is recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.’

AOC then added some of her own guidance in a follow-up tweet, writing: ‘For information on what to do if you’re exposed to COVID, test positive or want to schedule a test or vaccine in New York City — see our round-up of CDC and NYC resources here,’ before adding a link to a personal website.

The social media response has been a fascinating blend of her counter to the challenges about her Florida vacation (Republicans are mad because they want to date me) and karmic amusement over her current situation in light of her vacation behavior. There were also many reminders that vaccination was supposed to stop the type of surge we are now experiencing around the country.

This is a reminder that I projected everyone would eventually come down with COVID in an August 2021 post. And while there were many doubters at that time, the Omicron wave is changing many people’s opinions about the nature of the virus.

I must admit, I am experiencing a little schadenfreude. That being said, I wish Ocasio-Cortez a speedy recover and I hope she enjoys her new-found natural immunity for many years to come. It will likely work better than the vaccine.

And if she wanted infectious disease with her sunshine, she should have come to California. There are plenty pathogens available.

That’s one way to get people to stop wanting to date you.

Considering where she chooses to hang out, she should also be tested for an STD.

My wife has it (essentially, a cold), but I don’t. Not sure why I didn’t get it, but who the hell cares.

    Covid comes with a soupçon of randomness just to make the “experts” look bad.

    There are and always have been people with natural immunity in all pandemics throughout history. By natural immunity I’m not referring to immunity acquired due to recovering from a prior infection. They simply don’t get the disease at all.

    Stories abound in England about family members who nursed other family members throughout the Black Plague. Most family members who caught the disease died, but the ones taking care of them never did.

      Your claim is suspect. Can folks be vaccinated against tetanus? Plague? Cholera? Malaria? Syphilis? HIV.?

      Maybe folks just ran out of fleas and anuses.

        Arminius in reply to thetaqjr. | January 11, 2022 at 2:47 pm

        No, it’s not suspect. The fact that you bring up HIV is interesting; apparently you aren’t aware that research into HIV has confirmed exactly what I assert about about the plague. Medical researchers and geneticists have studied direct descendents of people who survived the plague. Records exist in England and it’s not too hard to trace geneologies back that far; many still live in the same villages as their ancestors.

        “…Seven hundred years later, we are still compelled by the story of the Black Death and the mysteries that surround it. How is it some people survived? Were they inherently immune? And how did a disease that killed so many seem to disappear?

        Scientist estimate the plague killed nearly half the population of Europe in the mid-1300s, but what happened to the other half? NIH researcher Stephen O’Brien’s work with AIDS identified a particular genetic mutation, Delta 32, that prevents both HIV and plague bacteria from entering human cells and causing infection–what geneticists cause a “positive mutation” because it confers survival benefits on those who carry it

        As O’Brien explained to PBS’ Secrets of the Dead, both the AIDS virus and plague bacteria hijack the body’s white blood cells. In the case of plague, this spreads infection into the lymph nodes. O’Brien discovered this same positive mutation in about 14% of the living descendants of plague survivors from the English town of Ewly. He hypothesized that the mutation became more wide spread after the plague because survivors, carrying the mutated allele, reproduced together. This same mutation explains why some European populations are less susceptible to HIV infection, according to O’Brien….”

        I take it then you didn’t bother to look into my claim before dismissing it as suspect.

      Milkmaids and others who worked around cattle often had natural immunity to smallpox, after a prior infection of a milder variant known as cowpox. The first smallpox vaccines were straight innoculations of cowpox.

I’m going to Orlando at the end of the month.

It’s likely I’ve already had COVID at the front end of the pandemic and pretty sure I was exposed to the comicon version at our superspreader family Christmas. Dunno -neither was horrible -I just felt tired a lot (like I was run down), though the wife was knocked out for 2 days with fatigue and fever after Christmas. She got vaxed late summer, I’m not at all. Both around 50 yo

I’m considering getting poked before traveling. It would suck to not be able to enjoy my vacation.

    alien in reply to Andy. | January 10, 2022 at 12:37 pm

    Why would you want to get a not-vaccine before traveling?

    If you already had the coof (likely), you already have the best immunity — natural immunity.

    JMark in reply to Andy. | January 10, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    Worry over possibly getting sick during vacation doesn’t seem like the best reason to get an experimental injection that won’t actually keep you from getting sick.

      Andy in reply to JMark. | January 10, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      I’m not against the vax, I think it does work or is better than nothing. I’m at the cut off age (50) where the body doesn’t quite do what it did when I was 30. At this point- my ER doc friend told me the vax is pretty much like getting last years flu shot for this year’s flu. So I’m really on the fence about.

      I can tell what COVID will do as I get older as my siblings all got it at various points and they are up to 5-10 years older than me.

      At 60- the early round of COVID knocked my oldest brother on his ass for about half a week. This was pre-vax. It was about like the flu minus the barfing and diahrhea.

      At 59+ the next to oldest brother was vaxed with J&J this past summer and Omicron knocked him on his butt for a week after Christmas.

      At 55 my sister was vaxed last summer… and Christmas Omicron gave her a headache and some body aches. I don’t think she had Covid prior.

      At 50- I’m pretty sure I caught the first round of Covid. I had some really weird symptoms and was tired for about a month straight in early 2020. I never got tested and never lost my sense of smell/taste, so it’s impossible to be sure, but theres no way I wasn’t exposed to the Christmas Omicron- I was sparring with a guy at Jiu Jitsu before Christmas eve who had it the following week- and was also rubbing elbows with the family who all got it. I was typhoid mary for all I know.

      Also mom was vaxed and boostered (86 yo) and showed no symptoms after the Christmas superspreader. Though I suspect she had it when I did in early 2020 because we all came back from vacation with the same symptoms of feeling run down for over a month.

        artichoke in reply to Andy. | January 10, 2022 at 5:13 pm

        If you’re not against the vax, I don’t know how you’ve withstood the propaganda this long. I think that while Covid is more dangerous for old people, the vax is much more dangerous for old people (a stat they never mention in the urging to get the vax, but they don’t deny it either).

      henrybowman in reply to JMark. | January 10, 2022 at 4:40 pm

      “an experimental injection that won’t actually keep you from getting sick.”
      …and worse, might make you super other-sick.

The news would be if she didn’t test positive. The more jabs you get the the higher chances of you getting infected increase.

Wonder if this might be what she wanted all along

Wondering if the awful Swalwell will also get it as he was seeking publicity by going the same route as AOC?

    It’s possible that both had it before they traveled to Florida.

    In Swallowell’s case, he may have had it and not known it.

    Swalwell can get it from the source. Direct from China because close contact will spread it. If Fang Fang doesn’t have it he will have to go drag bar like AOC.

      Milhouse in reply to r2468. | January 10, 2022 at 4:03 pm

      Um, he hasn’t seen Fang Fang since long before the plague hit. He dumped her when the FBI warned him about her.

        r2468 in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2022 at 4:33 pm

        Who’s seeing Fang Fang now? Is there any chance they are meeting under cover?

          Arminius in reply to r2468. | January 10, 2022 at 10:03 pm

          I figure the odds were good that despite the fact Swalwell claimed to have “cut all ties” to Fang Fang they were at least still communicating via social media.

          “A suspected Chinese spy whose goal was to get close to up-and-coming U.S. politicians is no longer Facebook friends with Rep. Eric Swalwell’s father and brother — or a handful of other people following revelations that their accounts remained connected.

          Earlier Wednesday they were still friended — years after the FBI flagged her for suspicious activities and the congressman cut her off. Later in the day, following reporting on the connections, their accounts no longer appeared on her friends list.

          Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang, arrived in California as a college student in 2011 for an effort to befriend and spy on lawmakers in the Golden State and other parts of the U.S., Axios reported Tuesday. Both Eric Swalwell Sr. and Joshua Falwell were listed as friends on her Facebook account, raising questions about how close Fang was to the congressman. …”

          Odds are good that Eric Swalwell was still communicating with Fang Fang using his father and brother as cut outs. It’s how corruption works. It’s how the Biden crime family works. Or, if you’ve ever seen the movie Goodfellas how mob boss Pauly worked. He wouldn’t have a phone in his house. Just a pay phone across the street and a runner.

        henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2022 at 6:27 pm

        But when you date a ninja, you could still be sleeping with her and not even know it.

        Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2022 at 9:03 pm

        He didn’t dump her; she went back to the PRC when she learned the FBI was investigating her. His office says he “cut all ties” to Fang Fang. What that amounted to was he unfriended her on FaceBook. Something that his brother and father didn’t do for another five years.

        I realize that Fartswell would like nothing more to have the world believe he dumped her, but you can’t dump a girl who has already dumped you and left the country.

        In any case it was incredibly stupid of Swalwell to get involved with her in the first place. She was president of the Chinese Students Association at CSU Bay Area and had close ties to the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco. She even got a “Certificate of Honor” from the consulate for her work during the 2011 academic year. China’s National Intelligence Law repeatedly obligates all Chinese nationals to assist intelligence and security agencies in gathering intelligence. The current iteration of the law dates from 2017, a couple of years after Fang Fang fled the U.S. But this kind of obligation has been imposed on Chinese nationals since Mao’s cultural revolution. All Chinese students have to visit the nearest consulate or embassy every six months so government officials can review just how productive they are, and if not they will lose permission to study abroad.

        Fang Fang was more enthusiastic than most. In fact, judging by the fact that she was years older than the typical college student she was probably already working for the Ministry of State Security before she got to the U.S. and installed as the president of the Chinese Students Association so she could monitor the other students for either signs of disloyalty or conversely potential.

        The PRC runs the largest HUMINT network in the world. In the U.S. they usually focust on U.S. citizens of Chinese descent, green card holders, or those here on work visas. They have a variety of ways to pressure Chinese to spy for them, from appeals to patriotism to threats to family still in areas under CCP control.

        I can tell you what; if I were approached by a 20/30 something Chinese national studying in the U.S. I’d automatically assumed I was being targeted.

        Swalwell is an idiot who damn well should not be on the intelligence committee. As evidenced by the fact he’s still hiding behind the ridiculous assertion that he can’t confirm if he had a sexual relationship with Fang Fang because it “might be classified.”

        There’s nothing anybody can do inside a bedroom or parked car that’s classified. If you’re the target, that is. Since Fang Fang was the honey pot than her activities would of course be a state secret.

        Barry in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2022 at 11:27 pm

        “He dumped her when the FBI warned him about her.”

        Sure he did.

        Always excusing the communist left.

I didn’t know the young lady was in drag all this time?

Unlikely she picked up the bug in Florida considering she was there over the holidays. The incubation period for Omicron is proving to be very short. It’s MUCH more likely she picked up in DC, maybe even in the halls of Congress.

My “IANAL but I have a dumb legal question” of the day for those who are:

When the Pfizer EUA (and maybe Moderna and the others, dunno) was granted, it specifically said it was to “Immunize” against Covid-19:

Intended Use for EUA Active immunization to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)

The proposed use under an EUA is “for active immunization for the prevention of COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 in individuals 16 years of age and older.” The proposed dosing regimen is 2 doses, 30 µg each, administered 21 days apart.

But the vaccine does not immunize. The CDC et al have changed their definition of “vaccine” to remove “immunization” from it, but they have not changed the definition of “immunize,” at least not yet.

Does this invalidate the EUA? The EUA was for the “immunization” of people against Covid, however the so-called vaxx does not do that, and is universally acknowledged not to do so.

And yeah, I know, some Hawaiian Judge, or Scotus order-taker, could simply reinterpret the meaning of “is,” but I’d still like to know: doesn’t the known lack of immunization invalidate their emergency license to immunize?

    Olinser in reply to hopp singg. | January 10, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    The EUA should have been revoked the second the vaccine was approved. Months later and they still haven’t started manufacturing the actual approved vaccine, because the actual vaccine is not shielded from legal liability for side effects like the EUA.

    If they aren’t going to revoke it for THAT, then they ain’t gonna revoke it for something petty like immunization.

    “…doesn’t the known lack of immunization invalidate their emergency license to immunize?”

    Of course, but then they knew it didn’t work when they authorized it. They have always covered up the truth.

    The only question is why the not-vax exists and is being pushed. We know what it doesn’t do.

A Mike Rowe video during the early stages of Covid, took a pragmatic view of the pandemic. He’d quickly processed the stages of grief and accepted that sooner or later, he’d have a date with Covid.

What he said, stuck. Everything since then? The cries of people stuck in the denial loop.

    henrybowman in reply to MrE. | January 10, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    This is so obvious (and so typical coming from based Mike) that you have to question the mental fitness of anyone who disagrees.

Am I the only one who thinks many of these supposedly covid positive politicians have reasons to claim they’re positive? Claiming to be sick can be a good way to distract people when you’ve said or done something stupid.

Sorry to break it but wailing on people (including AOC) for getting Covid does reinforce the lefts idea of you get covid if you don’t do what Saint Fauci Peace Be Upon Him says.

This doesn’t own AoC it reinforces her narrative and frankly she is a good enough actress that her mea culpa I didn’t listen to Fauci so I got sick….don’t help her narrative out to own her.

We want the rest of the country to follow Florida/Sweden’s model, reinforcing the AOC narrative hurts that effort and for what gain? Anyone think AoCs district will see this and vote Republican? Or that her social media followers care? Or that the right adopting the lefts standards to own the libs isn’t hurting our standards?

See this video

I don’t want to be a better mask police than the Democrats I want to stop the Dems mask police.

    artichoke in reply to Danny. | January 10, 2022 at 5:16 pm

    Yeah I like to laugh at AOC as much as anyone else, but I think you’re right here.

    henrybowman in reply to Danny. | January 10, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Not at all.
    Look at the native Floridians who surrounded AOC. Did they all get COVID? No.
    She came out of her greenhouse and cavorted with a high-risk population (and I’m not talking about the street Floridian, I’m talking about her clubbies.)
    It’s like a gringo clubbing in Cozumel, then complaining about Montezuma’s Revenge. Gee, none of the locals caught it.
    Not my problem.

      Again watch the freedomtoons video you aren’t beating AOC by adopting her beliefs and declaring your a better liberal than she is.

      You know AOC didn’t get COVID because she wasn’t wearing a mask because it spreads by aerosols the question is do you want to use this to encourage mask usage (the only possible result because AOC and her voters/supporters don’t care what we think) or would you like to push back against the standard itself?

    I get what you are saying, Danny, and I think that you have a point. When I first heard AOC tested positive for WuFlu, I cringed, knowing that it would be blamed on Free Florida and our great governor Ron DeSantis. If only DeSantis had “kept us safe,” she never would have got it. Blah.

    So, yeah, I see your point.

    That said, we are not trying to “own” AOC or the Dems (nor, as point of fact, do we want to “date” her). This is news in its own right because she is vaxxed and boosted AND STILL GOT the dreaded Rona. And she will survive. Of course. Because 99.9% of people who get it do survive (like me).

    Where is the impetus for the unvaccinated to get vaccinated when all we hear day after day is the latest pol, “journalist,” Hollyweirdo, or other self-righteous covid porn addicted loon “confessing” their great sin of testing positive for WuFlu despite following every diktat from Herr Fauci?

    And finally, I am a yuge fan of holding the left to their own standards ala their Alinsky playbook. Hold them to their own standards (well, if triple vaxxed and boosted AOC had only worn her mask as directed by her godlet Fauci, she never would have gotten it; it’s HER fault). I like to hold them to their own standards all day every day. It’s how we win.

      Thank you 🙂 I am always glad to engage with you and I am glad you see the point I was making but to go over one part of your post

      “And finally, I am a yuge fan of holding the left to their own standards ala their Alinsky playbook. Hold them to their own standards (well, if triple vaxxed and boosted AOC had only worn her mask as directed by her godlet Fauci, she never would have gotten it; it’s HER fault). I like to hold them to their own standards all day every day. It’s how we win.”

      Alinsky had no problem with the idea that his wife would be faithful to him in marriage. Did Alinsky have a problem with the idea of a mother and father in the house raising their kids together? Alinsky had no problem with shaming orgies. Alinsky’s make them live up to their own standards is in order to show they are unworthy standard bearers doesn’t apply to us because we don’t want to reinforce and embed the standard into society, The types of things Alinsky said to hold opponents to is entirely still embedded in the culture. I don’t want to embed masks and racial essentialism into our culture. The left didn’t actually mind the mores they held opponents to. We do. So no it isn’t a good deal to reinforce their standard in return for damaging left wing politicians (and even if it was it wouldn’t be possible while our politicians oppose things like masks).

      For a good analogy to why that rule for radicals won’t work for us (to take from how it was originally used) a pastor caught seeing prostitutes is held to his standard and loses his position for seeing prostitutes, which reinforces the standard you shouldn’t be seeing prostitutes while discrediting the hostile pastor as an opponent. Unlike leftists we are going against a standard we want to cease to exist. If you doubt that is a difference just ask Democrats you know how they would feel if their daughters became prostitutes (I think we both know the answer). Leftists didn’t mind reinforcing sexual standards because they didn’t mind keeping them.

Bullshit. I don’t believe she has covid. This is like a girl screaming she was raped or is pregnant when her idiocy starts getting questioned.

You watch. Over the next few days she’s going to scream about how it’s FLORIDA’S FAULT that she got covid, and that she shouldn’t have gone there, and that DeSantis policies give even smart people like her covid.

Honestly I don’t believe for a fucking second that she got it, the timing is too coincidental.

I hope she follows the protocol and then let’s us know when she’s willing to date all the republicans again. we’re waiting patiently.

Comanche Voter | January 10, 2022 at 4:00 pm

Best line I’ve heard is that AOC went to Florida and had a lousy vacation. Omicron was the only thing that penetrated her.

1. If AOC was a Republican, they would be wishing upon her a slow painful Covid death.

2. Looking at the calendar and when her symptoms presented, it is likely that she contracted Covid when she got back to New York. This is also more probable since Florida is relatively Covid-free and NY is the epicenter of the virus outbreak.

We better do the contact tracing to see who she was hanging with last week.

Did she actually get covid? I would not put it past her to lie about it in order to earn political points attacking DeSantis and Florida’s hands-off covid policy.

    She apparently tested positive . . . which is JUST LIKE being hospitalized, ventilated, and dying from the dread plague. And stuff.

      I don’t believe for a minute she actually has covid. so who else at her party has been identified? has anyone seen the diagnosis? this is theatrics and a way to slap the guy that kicked her to the curb.

      Don’t forget being raped. DeSantis literally* raped her with the ‘Rona in Florida! Just like she was terrified the J6 rioters were going to rape her!

      “(CNN)When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was barricaded inside her office during the Capitol insurrection on January 6, she not only feared that mob would kill her, but that she would be raped if the rioters found her…”

      Read the whole thing for insight into a deranged mind. No wonder her response to the criticisms of her escaping New York for a free state while her constituents had to suffer under mandates immediately rant to Republicans wanting to date her and transerring their “sexual frustration” to her boyfriends feet. And she imagined what she was saying made sense.

      *Leftists have repeatedly demonstrated that they don’t know the difference between “literally” and “figuratively.”

I hope she’s sick as hell.

It will then match her mind.

Call me skeptical but then I disbelieve almost everything that comes out of a leftists mouth. The truth is not a virtue to them. Has anyone seen the diagnosis? I seriously doubt she actually has COVID, has anyone verified it or are we to take the word of a known liar?
She got caught and slapped down by DeSantis et al and now she has to be able to run around saying “see how dangerous DeSantis is, I got COVID because of him”.
That is the whole point.

So did she really get Covid or is this a shot at the Free State of Florida?

Hopefully she won’t “sacrifice” herself to show us how DANGEROUS the FAKE FAUCI FLU really is!!
