Ocasio-Cortez Tweets About ‘Dark N Stormy’

February 12, 2019 | 35 Comments

In citing ‘Cocktails for the Revolution’ in a response to a tweet yesterday, Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about the ‘Dark n’ Stormy’ drink, saying a ‘world w/o a GreenNewDeal: a Bitter Dark n’ Stormy.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, who previously worked as a bartender, is the youngest woman ever to serve in U.S. Congress and is known for her high profile social media presence.

The Dark ‘n’ Stormy, is, of course, made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Ginger Beer, and some of her three million Twitter followers recognized the drink, with one response saying, “I love Dark n’ Stormy, ever since my first visit to Bermuda. I even buy Barritts Ginger Beer and Gosling Dark Rum!”

“Excuse me, Congresswoman, but the cocktail name Dark ‘N Stormy is a registered trademark of the Gosling Brothers,” one person responded, while another said they were ”torn between my support of the Green New Deal and my enjoyment of a good Dark and Stormy.”

The Green New Deal is a recently unveiled plan “calling for a massive jobs program to stave off climate change, aiming for an enormous investment in “clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources” over the next 10 years,” the Washington Post reports.

The roll out of the plan was not without controversy, with Business Insider noting that a line on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s website supporting “economic security to all those who are unable or unwilling to work” resulted in backlash, and prompted mixed messages from her team about where the line came from, and whether it was ever intended to be part of the landmark Green New Deal policy package.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      You must be a Trump supporter…shut up! You’ll be long gone before 2020 THANK GOD! She is everything that is right within politics…only old WASP’s getting petrified when they sense a threat to their core.

      • question says:

        she is a nutcase.

        • Jus' Wonderin' says:

          How is she a nutcase? Both you lot are nutcases…

        • Trump and anyone that thinks like him are @$$#0£€$

          • question says:

            By ‘anyone that thinks like him’, you mean people who hate foreigners, right?

            • Double S says:

              He is literally too dumb and blinded by his own hate to see that he and Trump’s mindset are exactly the same. Anti-immigration. Anti-gay. Anti-people who doesn’t look like him.

              • I dont hate foreigners, I hate when foreigners come to Bermuda and abuse their social and economic advantage to undermind Bermudians. Dr.E.F.Gordon is a perfect example of a foreigner neglecting a greedy, selfish motive to enhance the well being of the Historically opressed.

                • question says:

                  You said: “Trump and anyone that thinks like him are @$$#0£€$”.
                  That’s you OJ. That’s what YOU are. Anti-foreigner, anti-immigration, anti-gay, anti-anyone who doesn’t look like you.
                  You’re the @$$#0£€.

                • Double S says:

                  Nah. You hate foreigners.

                • CHRIS says:

                  the entire world is made up of people who more social and economic advantages than most Bermudians. go back under your hate filled rock.

            • Come Correct says:

              If you gave OJ a trip mine he’d walk into it himself. Sets himself up every time.

            • Bob says:

              Ummmm…how bout anyone that hates anything that isn’t a certain race … build that wall ….

          • Concerned says:

            Onion juice I really wonder if you have a job because you have all the time in the day to talk pure crap all day. I’m a Trump supporter and I could care less who doesn’t likes it

            • Mike Hind says:

              And yet, you hide like a coward behind a fake name…

              • So does your fellow bloggers, are you gonna chastise them.
                Thought not.
                Just like Fahey chastized Bermudians for nagative comments against foreigners, but never chastised foreigners for making negative comments about Bermudians.
                Black Bermudians have been catching $#!+ for too long, times have changed.
                GET OVER IT

                • Mike Hind says:

                  I was actually speaking to “Concerned”, so… yeah… as usual, you are wrong. I WAS “chastising then”… but I obviously touched a nerve….

                  Don’t you ever get tired of being absolutely and so easily proven wrong about pretty much everything you write?

                  I mean, it has to be wearing on your soul…

                  Doesn’t all this hate you spew, all based on false premises and lies… doesn’t it start to make you feel sick about yourself?

                  Or do you just not care?

                • Mike Hind says:

                  Then again, you’re probably tired from all the graffiti you did last night…

                  • There is a law against false accusations, lemon tart.

                    • Mike Hind says:

                      I’d have to know who you are, hater…

                      Nothing written on those walls is any worse than the hateful, insane nonsense you usually write here…

                    • Mike Hind says:

                      Press charges… I dare you!

                    • LaV says:

                      Hey onion tart, if there really was a law, don’t you think you’d be locked up, again?

          • Wawick Winner says:

            Any actual arguments, or just name- calling?

        • Ortega says:

          Legit crazy.

      • truthertz says:

        She is the Democrat version of Trump. Clueless and more interested in social media then actual governing. But hey if she gets her “Green Bill” through (which it never will) at least we will be done with planes and farting cows and all those ‘unwilling to work’ will still be paid for just being alive. Lol.

      • aceboy says:

        Her plan requires the super rich to pay tax at 70% or more.

        The super rich that live in the United States don’t live in Communist China. They can giddy up and leave the United States. I wouldn’t blame them frankly. Why should they fund new technologies and products to fund all of her “free stuff” policies?

        So if she doesn’t get all that tax revenue, guess who is going to pay for her grand plans. Everyone BUT the super rich.

        It is a plan destined to failure on that basis alone.

        I won’t even bother to address the problems with her self imposed “pie in the sky” deadlines to end the use of fossil fuels etc. or get into all of the massive government projects that have fallen victim to corruption from top to bottom in the “green” industries to date.

        Nope. It will never get off the ground because there won’t realistically be the money available to pay for it.

        Speaking of Communist China, they are the WORST environmental abusers on the planet. Logically if you don’t get China to buy into her little plan the planet will continue to be polluted by those who pollute it the most.

        That is why she is a nutcase…in a nutshell.

        • CHRIS says:

          I hope the super rich ALL MOVE HERE! C’mon PLP… this is your chance to welcome people here who will spend millions on local services. Give them status for $x and let’s get on with it!

        • Wawick Winner says:

          Careful, now. Too much (or any )logic and fact will explode the heads of most of the commenters here.

      • Wawick Winner says:

        Typical, telling us to shut up. Do independent research instead of running your ignorant mouth.
