I don't understand the fascination that people have with AOC

She seems like a nice person, but the left have put her on a pedostal for some unknown reason.

She's anything but. Or to be more precise that sentence is 100% correct. She *seems* like a nice person. And she's fully aware of it. Ugly as hell and fake underneath though. Most dangerous kind of people.

And I know that seems like a lot of unjustified hate, but I know people like her and for me she stinks to high heaven. Your Mileage and interpretation of her may vary completely though.

I can't fap to this.
Maybe if we combine our powers?
yeah, by the two minute mark it's like listening to your girlfriend tell you want she did that morning. I could make it no further.
I hate your avatar lol.

Also I can't watch this woman. She looks like the Democrat Donkey was given a human body.

So much energy and so much effort from the Right is put into to hating and ridiculing this one particular rookie Congresswoman who has next to no influence outside of social media.


Rent free does not even begin to explain it lol
Oh come on, did the right give her this vanity fair video? Circulate those staged photo's of her crying at a car park? Include her in the group of women Trump was terrified of on the The Simpsons?

She's as much a figurehead to the left as she is the right. Her and the rest of 'The Squad' (again, a special title and prominent role given by the left) are the poster girls of modern far leftists as much as they are figures of contempt to the right. Both sides are guilty in giving her this constant attention and greater influence than she deserves.

Can't wait for the followup "AOC describes the dream she had in great detail" video.

I appreciate a good rags to riches kind of story. It's only good when it happens to especially bright, capable, self-sacrificing individuals, though. Doesn't seem to have been the case here, from what I've seen.

She's only 31. That's young for politics. They do say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but she really isn't ugly at all.

Guaranteed she'll run for POTUS in 2024 if Trump wins in 2020 and I also would put serious money on her winning.

Not somebody I'd vote for, but I can see the appeal to younger voters. Most people don't give a shit about policy and just care about the personality their voting for. That's why we'll see more politicians playing games on Twitch etc.

I love it when the left tried to pretend like the right picked her out for absolutely no reason instead of admitting that she was put there by the Justice Democrats and put front and center on purpose. They put her front and center on The Green New Deal, the amazon thing and even made a comic book about her for crying out loud.

If the republicans lose to somebody that said on national tv that unemployment is only low because everyone has two jobs than we deserve her.

She has passion and a fairly quick wit in social media. But a lot can happen in the next 10-15 years before she becomes a big contender. She is already racking up scandals that can be used against her down the road (if we ever go back to holding our politicians to a higher standard).

I think her end game is just a perpetual congresscritter like pelosi. She is young enough to get seniority and a lot of influence while still young.

And if tanking the Amazon deal doesn't get her voted out, NOTHING in her district will.

Plus she is a good foil for trump, not so much when it is Biden. She has been slapped down by pelosi several times, if Biden wins and can't deliver I expect AOC to take him to task and get stomped from within. If she won't stay in her glass box and only come out when a nasty capitalist republican needs a good talking to the DNC won't keep her around.

A lot of young voters - actually a lot of voters in general - nowadays don't tend to vote for a person/party's policies.

How many Biden voters could tell you where Biden stands on health care or education? Not many I'd assume. A large portion of them are voting Biden because they just dislike the personality of Trump.

Democracy is dead

The battle on social media is something else.

I don't think it's 100% rent free when she's clearly being made and has positioned herself to be a galvanizing icon for young activists. Since those are the absolute loudest people on Twitter, she gets a shit load of vitriol sent her way by the other team who really dislike her fans more than anything else.

That all said, there's absolutely zero chance AOC ever becomes president. It's the biggest pipe dream ever and I think every Republican should be hoping she will run.

Does anyone really believe that the absolute youngest and most leftist member of congress from one of the absolute bluest districts in the entire US can win on a national ticket? Does that really sound like something the DNC would ever push for on the ticket?

There are People in here defending AOC, really? Watch 2 minutes of her in any context in any video. The girl is a fucking moron of the highest callibur! Worse than Sarah Palin! The country would be in ruins in a year with her in charge! Her base is the 'you go girl' 'yas queen' know nothings! This is not a Reb Dem divide thing, I respect Tulsi's intelligence for example dont agree with much else but that fucking brainlet? The usual suspects in here prove day by day they have no idea what socialism is or the useful idiots who drive it! Boggles my mind that in 'current year' they dont understand the rammifactions of what they stand for! Watch Yuri Bezmanov please I urge you!

I forced myself to watch the whole thing, which was quite painful. I have a few thoughts.

She doesn’t get into work until 9:30 and gets off around 6? I wish that was my day.

It sounds like much of her work is basically being a personality to get certain agendas out. I get it, but she sounds more like a PR person to me.

She goes to bed around 11:30 or 12 and gets up at 7? I would kill for even 6 hours of sleep.

She got a warning for turning when she shouldn’t have. That’s BS, follow the signs.

She washes her face three times a day but doesn’t shower?

Maybe I should have went into politics, I hope she realizes how privileged she sounds.

I stopped after "worse than Sarah Palin." No my guy, no one is worse than Sarah Palin.

Wow that was boring.

She seems like a nice person, but the left have put her on a pedostal for some unknown reason.

Agreed, and on the flip side I don't understand the seething hate either. It's fine to disagree with her politics, I know I do a lot, but she is an absolute magnet for all the incels out there that go after her any chance they get. They don't even go after her ideas or policies, just immediately make it personal. And I get it, you're a public figure, you're going to get hate. But she's done what most people would consider the American dream. She didn't grow up in the greatest position but worked hard and made something of herself and got a job that can help her make a difference. But then you see people rip on her for being a lowly bartender and whatnot. It's kind of pathetic.

And even in this thread you've got people making fun of her looks, which again is fine, it's funny. There's clearly a horsey resemblance there. But if somebody goes into a thread and mention's Trump's looks the thread turns into a total dogpile.

Let's be real here, if she was republican she'd be put on a pedestal there too. The people making cheap comments about her looks....that's just desperation. That's what you do when you have nothing else to say except personally attack someone.
