More inappropriate memes from the MAGAs. Haven't seen any "libtard" memes since I made my last point about this....Y’all can have her.. So classy.. She just gets it...
As always, thanks for the thoughtful response HAL.Ridicule does not equal threatened libtard.
I hesitate to even dip my toe into this shitshow, but oh well. The above stupid, classless, and tasteless memes aside, it's a cop-out to automatically declare that someone's "afraid" of an idea just because they vehemently disagree with it. That's just a higher-class version of the crap that's been flung on this thread, to the tune of "HURR UR A SNOWFLAKE! YOU MELT FRUM MAI HOT TAEKS!" It's a condescending way of saying "oh, you poor thing. You're just afraid. Here, let me tell you what your best interests really are, kiddo." The assumption that true agency and free-thinking can only yield one opinion is arrogance. Because you don't have to engage with opposing ideas, just declare them outside the bounds of discourse and move on.Why the obsession with AOC? Fear and discomfort of otherness. Also that’s what Fox has instructed.
It does indeed, but the point remains. Vehement disagreement for any of those reasons doesn't ipso facto make someone "afraid" or "obsessed."Okie doke.
Pssst: otherness includes ideas and world views, but good job punching yourself breathless focusing on the demographics.
Regardless of what the MSM has instructed the common folk to repeat, the larger concern is the fact an entire congressional district elected a women who (ridiculous ideas aside) has no qualms with infringing on constitutional rights and imposing large government authoritarianism on the entire nation. She is an openly avowed socialist and her very presence is a detriment to the fundamental articles of the constitution. That's why she garners so much vitriol. She is disguised as a doctor who is proposing tyrannical policy ideas as a cure for all of America's (...and the world's) problems.Why the obsession with AOC?
Well, she isn't truly powerless as long as the media gives her wacky ideas a forum and the party doesn't distance themselves from such radical goals.....If she's so powerless, why do you/conservative media feel the need to degrade her like this (with pictures that aren't even her btw)? I'm seriously asking, I'd like to know.
All true. But a spade is a spade. She is a self proclaimed socialist and her proposals mostly fall into that camp. Proposals that are very much being criticized on their merits. Have you missed that? Yes some guys have their hair on fire. You always get that on both sides. It's their job. Like being a n old school hockey enforcer. But plenty are talking realism, technology, cost, and freedom restrictions.There's nothing in the constitution about capitalism or socialism, and there are a whole host of examples of long-standing government policies that clearly fall within the definition of socialism. Yes, a lot of what AOC has proposed is hare-brained, but just because she proposes an idea doesn't mean that it becomes law or policy. Those who oppose her will find more traction in calling out specific policy proposals on their merits, instead of flailing their arms decrying the socialist bogeyman.
