I never actually listened to her talk. She comes across as clueless. It's like she woke up one day and decided to be in politics, having never paid attention to what is really going on in the world.

We're not going to defeat these people by mere mockery. Make no mistake, they are gaining ground because we let ourselves become the mockery. We need to get busy fixing what went wrong with us or these loonies will most assuredly start taking over. These people are nothing but opportunists. We gave them this opportunity because we got lazy and selfish. The best way to stop them is to take away that opportunity by bettering ourselves.
These new extremes that are suddenly becoming the norm are the greatest present threat to this country. It shouldn't matter whether you fall on the left or the right of some made up line in the sand anymore. What matters now is working together to end the extremism in both camps. Because I can assure you that it will end all of us if we don't.
Technically you are wrong. My apologies for pointing that out, because you have a point.
However, whenever someone starts going into "socialism actually works, if you do it right this time" the best thing to do is laugh and laugh and laugh...
Ridicule has worked for progressives for over 100 years. They mock you, demean you, put you down, claim moral and intellectual superiority while clinging to a political concept that has never worked, nor ever will.
People are starting to wise up to that.
So laugh in their face and keep going.
Their echo chamber will burst soon enough.
