As published in the description by Fact News: The SlatestRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Washington on March 27. Win McNamee/Getty ImagesOn Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez addressed retiring Republican Rep. Ted Yoho’s nonapology for calling her a “fucking bitch” earlier in the week. In 10 devastating minutes, Ocasio-Cortez shamed the Florida congressman as emblematic of a culture of misogyny and workplace harassment, tied the Republican Party to that abuse, and once again demonstrated that she is one of the most impactful voices in the House Democratic Caucus. Yoho accosted the New York representative on the steps of the Capitol on Monday over comments she had made connecting crime rates to economic marginalization—a theory widely accepted by criminologists. After Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez that she was “disgusting” and “freaking out of her mind,” the New York progressive responded that he was being “rude.” As Yoho walked away with Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, and within earshot of a reporter from the Hill, he then used the slur. A daily email update of the stories you need to read right now. Then on Wednesday, Yoho took to the floor of the House “to apologize for the abrupt manner of the conversation I had with my colleague from New York.” He went on to deny that the thing that Ocasio-Cortez and a reporter witnessed had actually happened. “The offensive name-calling words attributed to me by the press were never spoken to my colleagues, and if they were construed that way, I apologize for their misunderstanding,” he claimed. As she said in her own fiery floor speech on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez had intended to let the incident go, but changed her mind when she heard the fake apology. After explicitly repeating the derogatory words Yoho had pretended were not meant for her on the floor of the House, she explained why they represent more than just a one-off insult:Dehumanizing language is not new, and what we are seeing is that incidents like these are happening in a pattern. This is a pattern of an attitude towards women and dehumanization of others. So while I was not deeply hurt or offended by little comments that are made—when I was reflecting on this, I honestly thought that I was just going to pack it up and go home. It’s just another day, right? But then yesterday Rep. Yoho decided to come to the floor of the House of Representatives and make excuses for his behavior, and that I could not let go. I could not allow my nieces, I could not allow the little girls that I go home to, I could not allow victims of verbal abuse and worse to see that, to see that excuse and to see our Congress accept it as legitimate, and to accept it as an apology, and to accept silence as a form of acceptance. I could not allow that to stand, which is why I’m rising today to raise this point of personal privilege. And I do not need Rep. Yoho to apologize to me. Clearly, he does not want to. Clearly, when given the opportunity, he will not.\n\nAll data is taken from the source: http://slate.com\nArticle Link: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/07/aoc-speech-destroying-ted-yoho-suburban-women-polls.html\n\n#TedYoho #newsuk #newstodayusa #newstodaybbc #usanewstoday #bbcworldnewstoday #
