The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thread

AOC is bizzaro Trump or Phantom Zone Trump or whatever comic book analogy you want to use. She has the same, but opposite spectrum powers.
  • Liberal women are attracted to Trump as he has all of the attributes of the most alpha man on earth, yet they are ashamed to admit it. Conservative men are attracted to AOC because of well, that dancing video.

Not gonna lie, she looked pretty good there. I'd have hit it.

The world would be a different place if dancing AOC just became an intern, pulled a Monica Lewinsky and images/video were leaked to the press. She could have been the #MeToo leader, this thread would be a lot shorter and I'd be interested in her for a much simpler list of reasons.
She's too smart for that. Check out her replies on twitter to the Republicans trying to take her down for the 14k outfit thing. Great rhetoric. It's a huge mistake to underestimate her and call her stupid. It's pretty much the same thing the left did with Trump.

AOC is not stupid. She graduated with honors with a degree in economics which is is not a fluff major. She also placed very high in a national science competition in high school. What she lacks is true leadership ability. She is a very poor leader. That's not surprising because before being elected to Congress she never had any job that placed her in a leadership position. She never had any job that forced her to develop leadership skills. She's also not a great public speaker either and often she comes off as a mouthy college sorority chick.

I agree, the world would be safer if her ambitions were lower. She is going to make Nancy Pelosi look like she has the cunning of Jessica Simpson if AOC stays in politics that long.

This is what, her FIRST term in political office? She is only going to get more polished. Her biggest risk is probably having some sort of Clinton style exercise accident at this point.

Being a hot-headed latina woman kind of has that effect. I don't expect her to get more support once the billionaire soros types stop funding her or have their funding efforts curtailed by "foreign influence" laws being enacted. She will got the way of fauxcahontas. A scorned woman taking out her neuroses in the section she is elected to represent.
I'm not saying underestimate her but c'mon man...look we can be smarter than some birds here.

If this was WWII Germany and AOC was a tank commander for a crew of Roosh V'ers piloting a Tiger 2 she would be mutinied and dropped off in the closest town on day. That is obvious... but its not the world we live in.

This is american poltics and her soldiers are bitter single women, gays, soy boys and other cucks. She knows how to speak to them and lead them...just look at her weirdo 'boyfriend' she keeps in the shadows. I bet that guy sticks around just in the hopes that he gets to fold her underwear on laundry day.

She doesn't have to seem smart to "us" or a leader to "Christian men with intact ball sacks" we aren't her army. This broad is the Cheryl Sandberg of politics. She knows how to make the retard brigade "lean in"

She graduated "with honors" which at Boston University means top 30%. Good, but if she were summa cum laude we would hear about that.

Given her generation, I'm betting dollars to donuts there are nude photos, snapchat messages/sexting and maybe a bong hit or two of her still lingering from those days.

When she first got elected she declined an AIPAC sponsored trip to Israel that is always offered to freshmen congressmen. The point of the trip is supposedly to educate the newly elected leaders on the history and importance of Israel, but the reality is it's a blackmail gathering operation that Israeli intelligence uses to glean whatever they can from unsuspecting fools while they snooze in bugged hotel rooms, travel in vehicles with hidden microphones and have their electronics ransacked by technicians while they wait for their luggage at the airport.

Someone tipped her off about these trips and she did not go. Eventually if she is seen as not playing ball with AIPAC they will put her in the political grave yard as they have with countless other politicians who didn't get with the program. Watch this space.

Conquistador is getting blamed for the house losses because of her SJW rhetoric esp defund the police. The earlier post about making lists of people who cooperated with Trump and this was a concerted effort to change the narrative. She's not coming from a position of strength.

AOC's story is actually quite impressive. Was a young bartender who was inspired by Bernie Sander's 2016 election run and wanted to run herself in a district that was held by an incumbent corporate neo-liberal democrat (Joe Crowley) who was backed by millions of dollars from wall street and big corporations. She ran an anti-establishment campaign and beat Joe Crowley through pure grind and grit, knocking on thousands of doors the old fashioned way, phone banking, getting thousands of volunteers to do the same and crushed him. This paved the way for other working class progressive candidates like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley who won their districts similarly.

If anybody is interested. Netflix has a good documentary on AOC's run in 2018, goes behind the scenes of her campaign and how she pulled off her win. Very impressive.

Documentary is called "Knock Down the House"

Anti-establishment sounds good, but at some point once you overthrow the establishment then you become the establishment.

And under a socialist establishment you will starve (if your neighbors don't rat you out to the secret police first). You think getting kicked off Twitter, having to suffer gay pride flags in the organic grocery store, and worrying about self-driving cars is rough? Just you wait...

I would take 100 years of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden over 4 authentic, grass-roots, anti-establishment years of Bernie and AOC grinding and gritting me onto lists and into work camps.

I suggest you read Heart Of A Dog by Bulgakov.

I admit to sort of liking AOC while never agreeing with her politics because she's interesting and anti-establishment, and also attractive (I like Latinas and don't mind a somewhat busted face on a girl with a nice figure). However, after the thing with her making lists of Trump supporters for future punishment, I'm 100% clear that she's a huge problem and it would be a good thing if she'd never been elected.

The level of naivety that Perros must have in order to believe AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley were elected through "knocking on doors" - and detailed on Netflix out of all places - is somewhat akin to those 18-year old girls who go on "self-actualization" trips to remote areas of Pakistan and get themselves raped and beheaded.


Same way Trump supporters are holding faith that Trump is going to somehow win this election with their "get rid of the illegal votes and count the legal votes" schtick. He got swept fair and square just like I predicted. What made him lose was his inability to stop the pandemic and brushing it off as some conspiracy perpetuated by the Chinese, but hey since Trump said it, it must be true what he says right? Instead he tried to brush off the pandemic (which was the number 1 issue for Americans) and focus on the "evil lefties burning down cities." See unlike you, I don't believe in Conspiracy theories and don't blindingly support a self-obsessed cry baby like Trump just because he tells me to. That's incredibly small thinking and cowardly and weak. "I'm so scared of the evil lefties, please Donnie, please lead me" :boring:.

As far as AOC and the squad are concerned, at least they actually want to help working people and support policies that the overwhelmingly majority of Americans support. They are for

-The Green New Deal (63% of Americans support it)
https://grist.org/article/poll-the-green-new-deal-is-as-popular-as-legalizing-weed/

-Medicare for All (69% of Americans support it including 50% of Conservatives)
https://thehill.com/hilltv/what-ame...69-percent-of-voters-support-medicare-for-all

And speaking of conservatives to the bewilderment of their own Fox News hosts, and exit poll done on Fox News viewers found that 72% of them support a government-run health care plan.




-Raising the minimum wage (70% of Americans support raising the minimum wage including 62% of GOP voters)
https://www.witf.org/2020/09/30/pol...olitical-spectrum-want-a-higher-minimum-wage/

-Canceling all student loans (67% of Americans support it including half of Republicans)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adammi...d-other-relief-for-borrowers/?sh=4b419072b7c1

- $2000 a month UBI during the pandemic (77% of Democrats and 52% of Republicans support it)
https://basicincometoday.com/poll-7...blicans-now-support-an-emergency-ubi-of-2000/



^^^^^^^ This is why Trump lost. He didn't stand for any of these things and frankly he didn't stand for shit! "Evil lefties bad," "Evil lefties are going to destroy your cities" is not going to win you an election. I'm surprised Biden didn't win by more, because an actual leftie would have destroyed Trump doubling Biden's numbers. Those are just facts.

You can trash AOC and the squad all you want but they are correct on the issues that matter and are in sync with what the majority of Americans want including Republicans, which is the reason the Republican and Democratic establishment hates them so much. I think you my friend are naive on the issues on the ground, but hey I expect that you being from Croatia and all. These 4 chicks are going nowhere and are only going to get bigger given the overwhelmingly popularity of the issues they support.
