The optics of showing up to the cages with cameras vs a tweet........

Cmon man it's been like 5 days. It's not the biggest deal but you know why we're rolling our eyes when your talking about AOC one of the few folks to stay on target here when you got other more powerful Democrats actually talking about how much better these camps are because Biden rebranded them a little if not just staying silent on the issue

 Pretty lame comparing democracy to a dictatorship but you do you.  

So about these state operated classes where citizens are taught how to bow down to the state.....lets say somebody doesn't do so well is there going to be a longer term option? Like maybe a camp where they can be reeducuated?

Like I know it's the Gen X anybody older than 40 brand to see her as incredibly performative and fake and if that's your outlook than you do you but I actually enjoy having a younger generation of progressives who don't outrage porn only when Republicans are in charge and clam up and say they haven't seen the facts yet when its Dems. (And shes like the the most media friendly least likely to rock the boat of them)

Imagine if we had a few more under Obama

No they say incredibly stupid **** all the time. Do some dumb things too. But they’re trying to make people lives’ better more than a lot of ****heads in Washington. I’ll take AOC over MTG six times a week and twice on Sunday. 

The funny thing is, I agree with a lot of what they want policy wise. What I don't like is the divisive race/Jew blaming that we've all seen before. If you take away the "cause" of the far left and the far right, you'll see they're exactly the same.

Are you sure the state will teach bowing down?  I was thinking more simple things like common courtesy, where to place hands while officers approach vehicle, and how to retrieve items when called upon to do so.  I think we're talking about two separate classes.

AOC tends to get on my nerves nowadays and I'm not even sure it's her fault. Just over exposure.

 

But I'd love to hear how if you remove the cause how MTG and AOC are really the same.

Theres a reason conservative media uses her so much in thier media and PR because she gets older white people's hackles up any a way other Democrats just can't even when they agree with her far far more than they do random typecast California Democrat A

They don’t blame Jews for anything, they’re critical of the State of Israel and it’s terrible treatment of Arabs and awful foreign policy.

same hate propaganda, different cause. You just now need to decide which race and religion holds the blame. That's what politicians do. But you're knee deep in the **** and gotta choose a side.

I know she represents the biggest shift in liberal politics away from neoconservatism in decades that isn't a 1000 year old Bernie Sanders but omg have you seen that one video where she dances :rolleyes:

(Psst your stereotyping yourself just as much as we Millennials stans are)

Also I can save a lot of money on how to interact with cops.

 

Cops.......dont talk to em.

They will threaten to snatch up and ID you downtown. The don't like the silent treatment where you just hand them your license and insurance card.

Nope, just the tactics and propaganda. But like I said, you're knee deep in the **** and loving it.

Would absolutely love to see what antisemitism AOC has pushed that is even 1/100th in the neighborhood as the Qanon lady. I'm guessing your thinking of like Omar (and even then I heavily disagree that they are the same but at least you'd be pointed in the right direction)

Even if we did live in a world where both parties were always equally wrong what's most striking right now is that the far right runs the entire right at this time. The extremists have taken over that party. Far left gets lots of mic time but just a little bit of policy influence. At least nowhere near as much as the far right is with Republixans nowadays.

I don't know this Q lady you're talking about. But I can tell you're getting salty while white knighting. You already know my disgust in general for politicians. The same blow back I'm getting now is the same I got from the Righties here when pointing out their bs.

I think the slate needs to be wiped clean of career politicians and the big corporations in their pocket. Until then, my faith in politicians and their sheep followers is zero.

My dude, the recently elected MAGA ****heads like MTG (Jewish space laser Qanon lady from Ga), Boebert, Cawrhorne, or Gosar who just a couple of days ago spoke at an honest to goodness white nationalist conference, are a million times more divisive about the “race/Jew” thing.
