  • Some conservatives circulated a video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing in college, apparently meaning to mock her.
  • It backfired.
  • Most of the people sharing the video don’t see any issue with her dancing.
  • Ocasio-Cortez is often the target of bizarre memes and rants from members of the right-wing media.

Some conservative critics of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are being mocked after they attempted to ridicule the newly elected congresswoman for dancing in college.

Two popular conservative conspiracy theorists on Twitter, Dan Jordan and AnonymousQ1776, circulated an old video of Ocasio-Cortez dancing on Twitter. The clip is part of a video produced by students at Boston University in 2010 — an homage to the song “Lisztomania” by Phoenix — featuring a dance from the 1985 comedy “The Breakfast Club.” Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Boston University in 2011. 

The segments with Ocasio-Cortez dancing have been circulating through conservative websites since at least December 31, when a now-deleted YouTube video was posted to LiveLeak. It’s now made its way to Twitter.

Though the video was meant to diminish Ocasio-Cortez, the vast majority of responses are actually mocking the conservative poster.

Ocasio-Cortez has been a target of right-wing ire since she won her congressional primary last June, setting her on a path for her seat in the House of Representatives. As a self-described democratic socialist, she’s often the subject of bizarre memes and rants from members of conservative media.
