We’re not sure where this clip is from; we do know that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appeared on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” a couple of times to show the drag queens how to apply their eyebrows. We’re pretty sure it’s an old clip because Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez announced back in February of 2020 that she would be appearing on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and she was wearing the same dress.
So we’re not sure why this clip was posted Saturday, but we’re going with it for a couple of reasons. One is because AOC reminds the drag queens who threw the first brick at the Stonewall uprising, and they all nod along. The New York Times has tried to rewrite history and claim that those on the front lines of the Stonewall riots were trans women of color, which Andrew Sullivan has reminded them is “patently untrue.” Later, a group called Shelter got in on the action by claiming the Stonewall riots were started by “black cis and trans women who faced public housing issues throughout their lives.” Wrong.
AOC: "The people who change what people think are drag queens and artists don't forget who threw the first stone at Stonewall…"

“The people who change what people think are drag queens and artists.” They’ve changed what we thought about story hour at the local library.
AOC tells a group of transgenders and drag queens that they are "patriots."

In two generations we went from patriotism being synonymous with Patton, to cornholing while dressed as a woman. pic.twitter.com/77MxqR4zcg

Learn to pronounce
having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one's country. Being "Drag" has nothing to do with supporting the country smdh

Taking hormones and getting surgery is patriotic in 2022

This is like Oprah sitting among a group of white people in blackface and telling them that they are patriots and she's proud to live in this country with them.

AOC around those trans-tanks looks like an antique broom.

As we said, it’s an old clip, but it’s especially uplifting to hear a patriotic pep-talk like this one just as the nation slides into recession. We needed to hear these words today.
