We have found the perfect progressive congressional candidate: a former stripper who boasts that she had an abortion for all the usual selfish reasons, but also because of all the important things young lefties love to whine about. Plus, she supports herself with an OnlyFans page. Hollywood couldn’t write a more obvious caricature.
According to FNC, Alexandra Hunt is trying to unseat a (presumably) somewhat more sane Democrat in a Philadelphia area district. She’s running on her biography: part-time stripper in college and proud snuffer out of unborn life.
She tweeted last December that “Having an abortion enabled me to progress in my career, cut ties in an abusive relationship, and get to a place of economic security so I can properly care for my future children when I’m ready to become a mother.”
Right. Would that she had left it there. But her personal convenience nicely dovetailed with her social justice convictions. In May 2021, Hunt explained her virtuous decision:
I as a person was not ready to bring a child into this world, but also the world was not in a state — and is not, 10 years later, is not in a state — that I wanted to bring a child into yet, which is my decision to make.
Indeed, if the world isn’t to your liking, why let someone else give it a try? And the way Hunt describes it, inflicting the hellscape of modern America on a child would be a crime:
My generation faces a lack of jobs, a lack of living wage, a housing crisis, an affordable housing crisis, a student debt crisis, the climate emergency, the prison-industrial complex, and the list goes on and on. And I wanted to offer my child better.
So presumably, she’ll be comfortable letting a child live once she’s elected and in a position to guide America into the sunlit uplands of socialism (and they would have to be sunlit – Hunt disdains the “fossil fuel industry that’s leading to the destruction of our planet.”)
You know, the “stripper with a heart of gold” storyline can be compelling, but it does require some evidence that the stripper actually has a heart.
