    So it’s ok to like someone that misrepresents facts and sensationalizes everything all while using twitter as a means....so long as it’s not trump? Got it.

    I will. It's a good one that truly applies surprisingly often.

    If you dislike them equally than you are so biased giving Trump positive points to ”bring down the ’left’ to his level” its frightening.

    I need to do more research on it, because there is so much misinformation out there, it's hard to wade through, but my point is the GOP and Trump attack who they fear. I'm not saying that if she is sensationalizing things she should be held in high regard for that. I'm saying I think she is legit if the GOP isn't just dismissing her. 

    And your comment is not false equivalancy. I agree, I'm getting REAL tired of that term. it gets thrown around when it doesn't apply all too often.

    She’s a threat because the republicans know how to win and she is attacking them at that game. Gross misrepresentations and tweet them often so people believe. She’s a threat because she is so similar in style ;)

    It means that If you are finding yourself disliking her ”equally to Trump” then you must be really skewed towards Trump to begin with. 

    Which should be worrying.

    AOC, how many balls has she grabbed? And then bragged about? How many men have come forward to claim she sexually assaulted them? How many contractors do we know about that she’s ripped off? How many bankruptcies has she filed? How many times has she been divorced? How many porn stars did she pay off as she ran for Congress? How many of her partners did she rape?

    Yea, false equivalency, and I’m tired of them being made.

    Ok. Since the echo chamber is all jumping in. Comparing 2 peoples use of twitter is hardly equating them. Saying you dislike them both the same is hardly equating them in everything.  Y’all are reaching really bad. 

    Your “false equivalency” bullshit is the only false equivalency here.
    I know what you mean. They both have a tendency to distort things for political benefit.  
    For me,  Aoc fights for the right things,  the wrong way.  Trump fights for the wrong things,  the wrong way.

    Fair enough.  I’m not a big fan of the tactics. It’s how trump got elected. So she will likely be very successful politically, but I don’t think that’s a good thing.

    She throws bombs that aren't accurate.  Her tweets about the state getting back 3 billion in revenue after Amazon left is 100% inaccurate.  She completely misunderstood the deal or how taxes are collected.  She celebrated 25k jobs not coming.  She tried a coup on Pelosi which failed miserably.  She said Paygo "lacks economic merit".  And everyone knows my position on her statement about "concentration camps".  
    Your question about her 'threatening to take away" is not relevant to me. It's not about that.

    I completely agree. I know a few folks around here go with the narrative that she's a strong woman and that scares old, white Republicans. And that's fine if that's your point-of-view. Whatever. But I contend those Republicans love her and that she's a god-send for the GOP. Because of her high profile, everything she says gets attributed to the democratic party as a whole by the Hannitys of the world. She can say something that higher-ranking democrats like Pelosi and Schumer would never be onboard with, but once she says it, Hannity (or any Hannity-type) can say "Here's what the democrats are want to do...."

    Not sure how you can rally the troops to beat Trump when the highest ranking Democrat (and female) is being accused of racial and gender bias by a fresh ... person(?) lawmaker. 

    Maybe she is a GOP plant ....

    Oh I think you know quite a bit. AOC said Pelosi's actions were "the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color." What does their color or race have to do with anything? They're rouge members of what should be (I guess) a team and the team-leader (Pelosi) is trying to get things back on track. But...it's a white person being critical of a non-white person, so it's RACIST!
