AOC Calls Charlie Kirk a Weirdo Over Super Bowl Halftime Show Remarks

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) called Charlie Kirk a "weirdo" after his tweet about "sexual anarchy" in the NFL.

Following the 2022 Super Bowl Sunday performance involving stars Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre and Mary J Blige, the conservative activist took to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

"The NFL is now the league of sexual anarchy. This halftime show should not be allowed on television," he wrote.

Kirk has been mocked for this comment on social media and the Democratic representative from New York appeared to join in with her own tweet.

She retweeted a retweet of Kirk's comments, writing: "Like I said, weirdos."

Other Twitter users joked about Kirk's comments. Some questioned what element of the performance he found sexual while others simply joked about the use of the term "sexual anarchy."

AOC has repeatedly criticized Republicans and conservative activists for their comments regarding issues surrounding sex.

While Kirk is not a serving Republican Politician, he is considered a Conservative commentator.

He is the founder and president of Turning Point USA, a conservative youth group. He also regularly contributes opinion pieces to Newsweek.

Newsweek has contacted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Charlie Kirk for comment.

At the end of 2021, Ocasio-Cortez accused some Republicans of being sexually frustrated and in need of therapy.

AOC's comments regarding Republicans was in response to criticism she had received from former Donald Trump Campaign adviser Steve Cortes.

On December 31, 2021, he tweeted a picture of Ocasio-Cortez and her boyfriend out in Miami.

"1) If Leftists like AOC actually thought mandates and masking worked, they wouldn't be frolicking in free FL. 2) Her guy is showing his gross pale male feet in public (not at a pool/beach) with hideous sandals. 0 for 2," he captioned the tweet.

On the same day, Ocasio-Cortez addressed the tweet and criticized Republicans further.

"If Republicans are mad they can't date me they can just say that, instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend's feet," she tweeted.

She added: "It's starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general.

"These people clearly need therapy, won't do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It's really weird."

AOC received criticism from former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin after her attack on Republicans.

While speaking to Rachel Campos-Duffy on the Fox News Primetime show, Palin argued it was AOC who had an obsession with sex.

Palin was asked what would be the response if she replied to political rivals by claiming they were sexually frustrated.

"Isn't that something, that is pretty creepy, junior high-ish," Palin said.

"It amazes me though, [Ocasio-Cortez] and other liberals, socialists even, their ability to deflect from what the issues truly are.

"Here her obsession, at least her suggestion, always gender and sex, I truly believe there are enough Americans who get it and understand what her tactic is. That is to deflect from what the real issues are."
