But at least she’s not a white nationalist Nazi like 77% of the population seem to be.

Not yet, but if she mutters something foolish like "we need some degree of border control" she'll get tossed into the bin of alt-right nazi's like so many center, center left, center right, independents, blacks, asians, indians, latinos, etc that have uttered such hateful far right neo-nazi rhetoric.

It's a club that's growing by the day(while theirs is shrinking by the day).

Pure comedic gold, the next 17 months is going to be great.

This gang is front and center, even moreso than the actual dem candidates for president. Especially given that trump is addressing them and their "policies"(socialism) instead of attacking the current crop of candidates.

It' s a pretty clear strategy.

Highlight the farthest craziest members of the left, get their "ideas" in the spotlight(ideas the VAST majority of americans disagree with) while letting the actual dem candidates chew eachother up in relative obscurity.

See that latest Tim Pool video where something like 70 percent of ALL VOTERS disagree with socialism.

Trump is bringing these 4 front and center and given them all the airtime they need to drive home his 2020 re election. It's sad, both in it's simplicity but in it's apparent "4d chess" level to the idiots that he just toys with for his own purposes.

Next 17 months is going to be great.


Yeah, that wasn’t even 4d checkers. Maybe 4d tic tac toe?

They are blinded by their ultra-liberal PC base. I seen AOC say some smart things, despite recent dumb statements. Seems like politics has downgraded her.

Sometimes it baffles me. The people who go after Trump often just simply suck at creating solid arguments.

We have a serious problem in this country of both sides being completely incapable of criticizing their party. AoC and Omar cant criticize Antifa and people on the right are incapable of criticizing Trump when he does something stupid or pushes some bad agenda...

Maybe there is a silver lining?
Epstein?

It would be nice if his problems bring down a large portion of the political/entertainment/social/financial elite. Revealing the issue and freeing the way for some REAL people to move into positions of power. Not for their own gain, but to actually enrich the american people and america as a whole.

I really do hope that happens, i'm not holding my breath though.

They won't criticize because they support the violent fascists.

Not necessarily, but that's their stupidity.

They don't want to not support it, but don't want to support it. Keep those options open so they can appeal to that ever dwindling base.

Morons. Hindsight will surely be......"2020"...for them.

I present the best of AOC....

As the fresh face of the progressive left heads to Washington, here’s a look back at some of the congresswoman-elect’s hot-button statements made in media appearances along the campaign trail.

1. Capitalism in the Crosshairs

The liberal Left continue to push their radical agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” said Ocasio-Cortez in an interview on PBS’ “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover” in July when pressed on why the unemployment rate was low in a capitalist system. “Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their kids.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued to argue the days of capitalism are numbered:

And so I do think that right now we have this no-holds-barred, Wild West hyper-capitalism. What that means is profit at any cost. Capitalism has not always existed in the world, and it will not always exist in the world. When this country started, we were not a capitalist [nation], we did not operate on a capitalist economy.

2. Backpedaling on Israel

In the same interview, Ocasio-Cortez also referred to the situation in Palestine as an “occupation” by Israel.

When Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez to clarify her position after pointing out the term “occupation” was controversial, Ocasio-Cortez, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations from Boston University, struggled to explain her comment.

“I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You know, for me, I’m a firm believer in finding a two-state solution on this issue.”

3. Explaining the Extinction of the Middle Class

In another interview, speaking with former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett on the liberal podcast “Pod Save America,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed the “upper-middle class doesn’t exist anymore.”

Ocasio-Cortez was discussing the political ideology of the country’s different socioeconomic classes when she made the claim:

I think that politically, this upper-middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper-middle class doesn’t exist anymore in America, and thanks to the continued deregulation of Wall Street, thanks to the continued gutting of working- and middle-class people, we need stronger champions.

However, both the Urban Institute, and the American Enterprise Institute have presented evidence showing the upper-middle class is actually growing.

4. A Simple Payment Plan for Progressive Medicare

When asked in an interview with Jorge Ramos last week about how to pay for Sen. Bernie Sanders’, I-V.T., “Medicare for All” proposal, which Ocasio-Cortez has put at the center of her campaign, Ocasio-Cortez responded, “You just pay for it.” She continued:

People often say, how are you gonna pay for it? And I find the question so puzzling because, how do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent? How do you pay for—you just pay for it.

During this election cycle, Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive Democrats like Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who lost the Florida gubernatorial race, have claimed Sanders’ “Medicare for All” plan would save the country $2 trillion if implemented, but the claim has been criticized by fact-checkers as inaccurate.

In fact, a study by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University shows the plan would cost more than $32.6 trillion over 10 years, requiring historic tax hikes.

5. Comparing Climate Change to World War II

In a speech on her economic plan, Ocasio-Cortez likened combating climate change to the challenge posed by Nazi Germany in World War II, surmising the United States confront the issue with the same amount of resources.

“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II, and so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding:

What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and the Axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy. And what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialized our entire economy and we put hundreds if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100 percent renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.

6. Shutting Down Debate on Fossil Fuels

According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez declared at a campaign fundraiser there was “no debate” that fossil fuel production should be stopped.

“There’s no debate as to whether we should continue producing fossil fuels. There’s no debate,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

7. Carrying the ‘Organizer’ Torch to Washington

When asked by Chris Hayes on MSNBC about what she plans to do once she gets to Congress in two months, Ocasio-Cortez struggled to develop a coherent response and failed to offer any specifics. Instead, Ocasio-Cortez delivered this message on air:

Well, I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance. You know there’s a lot of inside baseball and inside the beltway as you, you always hear that term thrown around. But there are very few organizers in Congress. And I do think that organizers operate differently. It’s a different kind of strategy. And what it is, is really about organizing and, and really thinking about that word: organizing. Segmenting people. Being strategic in their actions in really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber.

To which Hayes responded, “That’s a really interesting thought.”

The actions of these women lately, especially crying the race card at Trump for chastising them after they attacked Trump and his pollicies, is a disgrace to women in this country and to people of color. I can't wait to see what Pelosi says about these women. These women are promoting chaos and trying to stimulate civil unrest. It is not because of their color or them being women, the problem is their attitude and disruptive behavior. I just watched a little thing on our local news about them being mad about Trump's tweets. It is all right for them to slam Trump, but it is racist when Trump defends himself and says things back. Who the hell elected this kind of uncivil congresswomen to our nations government, something needs to be done with politicians who are continually pushing for civil unrest. The Democrats need to take care of this problem and make sure they vet people better for these congress jobs.

What did he lie about. I'm sure he has lied but nobody ever presents something like "keep your doctor" which was a massive lie. Along with fixing NAFTA, Green Jobs, closing GITMO, getting out of Afghanistan, calling ISIS the varsity team.

One could seriously argue the lying of Obama is what created Trump.

All this controversy is being served to y'all on a silver platter. Saying that you hate the media is like a morbidly obese person cursing food while stuffing their face full of cake.

Keep eating the propaganda up guys, I'm sure one day someone important will go to jail, the daily gossip tabloids tell you so! All you gotta do is wait! Things are changing, even if they're staying the same!

Thats ok.
One can be a Muslim Nazi.
There were plenty in WW2
10s of thousands joined and fought for the 3rd Reich
Look it up.
Most likely a lot more than there are "white Nazis" today.
Dang , I just got to play the history card again today.

Denying ignorance

Be a good little clickyclick citizen, you'll be fine as long as you keep your head down, your voice low and your attitude in tow with the orders given.

Remember, they can't see you if you can't see them.

Something tells me she does not realize in order for that to be true it would mean Trump made so many new jobs everyone can have 2 now, when before they could not even find 1.
