The guest Ocasio-Cortez invited to first SOTU perfectly sums up reasons nobody takes her seriously

George Soros may not be attending Tuesday’s State of the Union, but an activist from the Soros-backed Center for Popular Democracy will be on hand.

To the surprise of few, given the notoriety of the decision, self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, invited as her guest Ana Maria Archila, the co-executive director of the progressive group.

You may be familiar with Archila, as she was one of two protesters at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh who confronted Jeff Flake as he was exiting an elevator.

The incident resulted in the weak-kneed former Republican senator from Arizona calling for a one-week delay in the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Kavanaugh to allow the FBI to investigate claims from Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her in high school.

Archila and her cohort, Maria Gallagher, were celebrated by the left.

“I just feel particularly moved that in her first participation in the State of the Union she is inviting me to join and inviting that moment of the elevator, my confrontation with the men who do not understand the life of women and the lives of people who are not in power,” Archila told The Intercept. “That she’s inviting that into the imagination of people again.”

Exposing her goal of looking to draw attention, Ocasio-Cortez flaunted her choice in a tweet on Saturday, while stopping short of naming Archila.

“Y’all aren’t ready for NY-14’s #StateOfTheUnion guest!” the Bronx dimwit tweeted. “Here’s a hint: I just picked up this gift for them at our very own Lockwood Shop in Jackson Heights.”

Unless, of course, the reference to “well-behaved women” rarely making history is a harbinger of what’s to come Tuesday night as President Trump addresses the nation.

(We’ll soon see how much control Speaker Nancy Pelosi has over the radical socialist wing of the Democratic Party.)

The newly elected Democrat took to Twitter Monday to announce her decision — after the Intercept article was released, suggesting her guest stole her thunder.

She linked to a staged Popular Democracy video of the two women, and as she is wont to do, Ocasio-Cortez flubbed the details of the incident, claiming Archila “jumped into the elevator.”

“I’m proud to announce that my #StateOfTheUnion guest will be @AnaMariaArchil2. Ana Maria is the NY14-er who famously jumped into the elevator with Sen. Flake to elevate the stories of survivors everywhere. She‘s living proof that the courage within all of us can change the [world],” she tweeted.
