The same people complaining about our use of adjectives are the same ones that describe Trump, his wife and children, Sarah Huckabee, Sarah Palin, etc with the same if not worse descriptors.


Funny how they are crying for civility now, but hide behind the 1st Amendment when it comes to people they disagree with.







No, sorry, you don't get to use that childish 'BUT THEY STARTED IT!' nonsense. Because we're not 5 year olds and this isn't a playground.

Sigh. Okay, maybe this is the playground.

I'll try to use words you understand.


I no say bad things about Trumpywumpy's wife or daughter. Most people who not Trumpywumpy fans just have great sympathy for Trumpywumpy's wife and daughter, because we see them as victims of a vicious awful misogynst.



Even if somebody do say something meany-weany about Trumpywumpy's daughter, it not make it okay for you to say meany-weany things about other women. It still bad and wrong to be a misogynst PoS. Even if you feel like somebody else started it.

Too late to try to change the narrative and dictate what others can say.


Cortez deserves no respect, has done nothing to earn any respect and I hold nothing but contempt for her or anyone who would try to dictate/mandate and remove enumerated rights and freedoms.

As much as I disagree with his choices of words and tactics... yes, he does if he so chooses.

It's called "equality."

Then please find me the daily threads on ATS where the Trump women are attacked and denigrated with misogynist language, where circle-jerks of woman-bashing are encouraged?

But okay, if this is the official ATS moderator position that we're allowed to behave like 5 year olds slinging insults at each other. It's been clear for a while, but I guess it's nice to see a moderator confirm it.

Public Service Announcement:

Rare that I do one of these but here it is.

1. This is the Political Mud Pit. A place that allows for the political trolling of political points and the politicians themselves. However, members are not the subject. Which means it is fine to disagree or even cajole anonther member’s position but not the member themselves. In the politest sense “Your ideas are wrong and bad.” but not “You are wrong and bad.”

2. While the Pit is a rough and tumble kind of place, there is no need to become completely uncivil losing all manners and decorum to each other.

3. Stick to the topic and not each other.

Thank you.

Why is it limited to women bashing?

I can show plenty of threads and posts with people on the right being bashed in all sorts of ways.

Is it only a problem if its a woman being bashed?

My take is that its all bad, no matter the political ideology or gender of the person being bashed.

Just curious why the name calling, do you have inside information that she is in fact a bimbo? It just seems quite petty and childish but this is ATS sooo. She is a newbie with some crazy ideas i.e. Green"Red" New deal, she is clearly a nut job but a bimbo? How about making a point without assuming she is the town bike.

The left's favorite BIMBO, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just a few weeks back stated that out of decency, during a government shutdown, Congress members should also not get paid, the same as any federal government employee.

Well, Bimbo has not been sworn in a week that she's changed her mind.

Does not apply to her, of course, Socialist of Manolo Blahnik shoes and all that.

Stupid democrats, wake the # up - you are ALWAYS played by your leaders - you are just cattle to them, used by "limousine socialists" to get rich themselves and ABUSE YOU!!!

IT's been that way since the 60's - WAKE UP IDIOTS.

Meanwhile, the Trump you are told to hate DELIVERS FOR YOU, e.g. HISPANICS -- NOT BIMBO CORTEZ

a reply to: M5xazWell said brother. Limousine socialists indeed. They are making decisions for all of us and yet they have their untouched millions and mansion homes and Cadillac healthcare and cushy pensions. And who know what other perks. It is disgraceful.

AOC Derangement Syndrome much?

Dark skinned hispanic named woman BAD......

(If you can't see what I did there, maybe read some of the other posts in the Pit - because this is your political reality)

Time to grow up people.

I second that!
I would also point out that technically speaking, AOC does not fit the standard modern definition of a "bimbo":
slangit.com...


A bimbo is a female who is not very bright but attractive. It is commonly used to refer to a blonde woman who has a lot of beauty but no brains. The term has been around since the early 1900s in the U.S. and was used to describe dumb and primal-behaving men. However, the term evolved over time to describe women who put more time into their appearance instead of their intelligence. Bimbos usually wear a lot of makeup and skimpy clothing and aren't smart. The bimbo term is very similar to the airhead term.


She's not blond and she has sufficient brains to make it to Congress. And there's no evidence to support the idea that she puts more time into her appearance instead of her intelligence.

In fact, per the following, she's been spending quite a bit of time developing greater intelligence, possibly enough to speak more intelligently to the issues that will be confronting her while serving as a Congress Critter.

From this article we learn the following:
www.nytimes.com...


So AOC, far from showing her craziness, is fully in line with serious economic research. (I hear that she’s been talking to some very good economists.)


AOC derangement syndrome (AOCDS) is, in my opinion, a cultural backlash against a young, intelligent, well spoken Latina who espouses ideas not in keeping with mainstream, white Republican male culture. It is altogether a fear based response, a "reaction" based upon fear and in many ways, its a well placed fear. Its a well based fear because in the not so very distant future whites and their culture will no longer be a majority and the majority minority will be Hispanic and what we've seen of late is that it is Hispanic women who are being elected to office and its assumed, though not altogether proven, that Hispanic culture is predisposed to Socialism as an economic model.

AOCDS speaks more about those who are in its grips than it does the reality of AOC.

Meh. We’ve had higher tax rates before. And nothing in socialism says you can’t have lots of money or buy lots of nice things. The opposite, really. And in fact, she’s not really socialist. Just advocating more equal tax policy and more social programs/ taxes used on citizens who paid them rather than wealthy corporations like the mic, banksters, and other parasites who want money for nothing.

Aw the snowflakes are upset at a junior member of congress learning that not getting paid during a shutdown is a bad thing because it means those that are rich members of congress can use the threat of a shutdown as leveravge against those that are not rich.


NO were upset because it seems that the new guard thats coming in seems to have no flecking idea of how any of this works, nor do they seem to have any idea of how the constitution works, or history.

Thats why shes being targeted, and shes being hailed as the new face of the incoming "ruling class" and people are championing her.

Thats what were pissed off about.

Add the fact shes being cheered on , by an even more increasingly ignorant populace, and youre going to have so irritated majority, yes including her own party.

But hey its a good ploy, if they push her to the front, when it comes election time , it will be more likely when the dems push another candidate they will sigh in relief, and rally behind.

Still wont work though, Id love to see a 3rd party, but with the democrats acting like they are, were going to see another republican because the left has swung so hard it sways even moderate democrats.

It will take extreme right and the already coming extreme left for a 3rd party to become viable. Long after im gone im sure, and im in my 60s
