AOC Whines About Short 'Sixty Seconds' Pre-Recorded Convention Speech

It turns out that the Democrat establishment isn't nearly as impressed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as she is with herself.
The sensational socialist may have been expecting to land a high-profile speaking slot at next week's scaled-down convention but ended up with a meager sixty seconds and only via a pre-recorded video message.
Even before the official speaking lineup was released there was buzz that AOC would be snubbed as the party moved to more conventional Democrats and RINO Never Trumper John Kasich.
Not only is Ocasio-Cortez's canned convention speech severely abbreviated but she will be a part of an ensemble of Latino voices making the case for the obviously senile Joe Biden.
It is hardly the keynote speech that her followers envisioned for the ideological driver of the socialist Green New Deal as well as Bernie Sanders' prized prodigy.
The temperamental Twitter diva took to her favorite platform to whine about being given such a minuscule role by posting a snippet of a poem bemoaning the DNC's allocation of "only a tiny little minute."
Time – even as short as one minute -- is what you make of it, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to be saying Wednesday evening.
The New York Democrat reacted on Twitter to reports that she’ll get just 60 seconds to speak when she participates next week in the Democratic Party’s mostly online national convention.
Ocasio-Cortez quoted from “God’s Minute,” by the late civil rights leader Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, whose poem was a commentary on the brevity of life.
“I only have a minute. Sixty seconds in it. Forced upon me, I did not choose it, But I know that I must use it,” the poem reads.
“Give account if I abuse it. Suffer if I lose it. Only a tiny little minute, But eternity is in it.”
Some people reacting to Ocasio-Cortez’s post accused the Democratic Party leadership of trying to stifle the congresswoman – a progressive who supported independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for president instead of the party’s presumptive standard-bearer, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“What a slap to the progressive wing,” one Twitter user wrote. “It’s a constant spite of us. They think we will cower and peter [out]. They are wrong. We ain’t going anywhere. With @AOC as our leader we’re just getting started. Now that the squad was re-elected we are ready to rumble in the halls of Congress.”
The news punctured AOC's balloon after fellow Squad member Ilhan Omar beat back a well-funded challenger in Minnesota's Democrat primary on Tuesday which the humble to a fault former bartender gloated about on Twitter.
The DNC's slight of AOC follows the selection of establishment phony Kamala Harris as Biden's running mate and perhaps future president in waiting instead of a true believer along the lines of Elizabeth Warren, Karen Bass, or Stacey Abrams which is an indication that the party views The Squad as useful idiots and noisy mascots who will be denied a seat at the table.
How it will affect turnout remains to be seen but the egomaniac AOC can't be happy about having the rug yanked out from under her like this.
