The notion that people, especially Republican men, are "afraid" of her is hilarious and just shows that your feeble mind can only revolve around feminism and social justice warrior narratives.

Conservatives definitely are not scared of her. They love her. They are using her as a weapon to label all Dems.

Naw man, I think most pubs are grabbing their popcorn and watching this walking timebomb serve up one self-inflicted wound after another on the Dem party.

It’s fun to watch the mainstream dems start to treat her like the racist uncle at Thanksgiving, doing everything they can to disassociate themselves from her.

The truly smart Pubs would be doing everything they could to keep her on page 1 for as long as possible.

The Repubs just aren't sitting back and watching. They are using her to try and make all Dems look nuts. That's why the conservative media focuses on her so much. They are using her to defeat the Dems. They aren't just grabbing their popcorn and watching. They are focusing on her and using her a political weapon against the Dems. That's why Fox loves her.

So I would certainly count them as "mainstream media"...unless "MSM" means something else I am not aware of.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.

lead to one supporting someone who proposed a plan that costs double our current national debt over 10 years, that costs 1/3 of our domestic GDP and that costs triple what we bring in via tax revenue year over year.

The real shitsandwich will come when these people are experiencing Greece-style austerity measures right here in the good old US due to repeatedly electing the politicians who best told them they were special and smart and pretty and deserved the best.

Since Amazon left NYC, AOC has a $3 Billion piggy bank to improve NYC infrastructure and pay people a living wage. She is going to make sure NYC hires 25,000-40,000 people instead of Amazon.

Not sure why NYC was sitting on such a huge pile of cash just waiting for Amazon.

How do you know how much the Green New Deal would cost when all we have is a vague resolution?

And we'll never have austerity.

naw obed, the plan is to tax the wealthy ungodly amounts and dial down our defense spending to pay for a healthy, educated society.

But I like how you conflated the issue into a spending problem when a single payer system would actually cost less in the long run. I mean what we have now is such an utter clusterfuck, it is amazing anyone actually try to defend it.

But that's why I'm also puzzled Trump is still getting support and we're hearing things like, "Well but the economy is good and look at my 401k..."

The man is adding to our deficit.

The controlled all 3 branches of government up until January. It's there legislation that has pushed us so over the top in debt.


Say what? Obama doubled the debt in 8 years.

To solve the problem as they don't see it as a problem. They continue down this road.

The GOP constantly talks about fixing it yet doesn't seem to practice what they preach. So I put the burden on them. We know the Dems will do nothing.

The ONLY reason she is having the influence she is having is because cable "news," especially Fox News, are plastering her face and voice on everything at every opportunity. The ONLY reason they are doing that is because putting extreme stuff on the "news" drives up ratings.

People need to turn that junk off of their TV. It's really hurting the country.

Her constituents need to hear it so they can vote properly, but we don't. At least I know I don't.

How many other freshman Congressional representatives can you name off the top of your head? I bet the number is less than 5. And the ones you can name are probably the ones saying dumb stuff, because that's what they put on the "news".

This is how President Trump got elected. He said the most extreme things, so he got by far the most air time, and eventually people started to think that's what they really wanted, because he was the one making the libbies the most mad.

You see this at play now, where liberal people are starting to think her ideas are good, just because she's the ones making the conservatives the most mad, and she's the one who's leading the charge every time you turn on the TV or "news" websites.


She's definitely a media creation.***

She's different for sure. Way far left for my taste but spunky enough to get her message out there. It's clear that the vast majority of American's don't go along with here more radical thinking but I don't think she's anyone to be afraid of. Media makes boogie-men out of different people to generate viewership.

There is plenty of room in the marketplace of ideas to accomodate her and those to far, far right of her.

America lives in the middle. There will always be far left and far right.

George Wallace ran for President, remember?
