If her family was socially conservative how did AOC end up being a progressive loon? I'm calling BS on her family bring socially conservative.
She grew up in a NYC suburb in Westchester County which is somewhat liberal. She then attended Boston University right after high school which is extremely liberal (both the university and the city) and was an intern for Senator Ted Kennedy which shows that at a young age she was into leftist politics. She actually did well in university which shows she is pretty intellectual and my guess is that she had plenty of friends and other classmates that were also heavily into politics as well.

How rooted was her family in this "social conservatism"? Were they just "socially conservative" because they were Hispanics and just hated sodomites because it was the Hispanic thing to hate sodomites, or were they actually solid Bible-believing Christians?

It’s hard not to laugh at some of her insanely stupid comments. But the reality is that if AOC were to ever achieve real serious political power and influence , she actually has the potential to be very destructive and dangerous. She’s the type that would actively go after her political enemies and actively punish them. She strikes me as being very vindictive.

I think she could very well pull off a Trump-esque takeover of the Democrat party. The things you speak of are frankly what most young lefties want. She of course scares away moderates, but like Trump, she rallies a different kind of voter as well. She would absolutely bring out the Under 30/Tik Tok/reddit types like no other candidate could.

That creature will never get any actual power or so, but there is some bad news.
Creatures like her, Bernie etc, existing just to push people (with huge help of their GloboHomo masters) from the real problems and the real populism to one what is fake. When elites notice that there is some actual populist force, out of nothing shows fake one, and that is not a recipe just for the USA, two examples from Europe on my mind just right now. If in 2016 there was Jeb Bush against Hillary no one ever will heard so much about some Bernie and especially about mad AOC or her loonie squad but all what is behind is just that, to distract people and turn them (especially young ppl ) to the fake populism as a form of "damage control" from the real populism.

She gives more context here. Red nails and red lipstick are a way for her to show empowerment.


These champagne socialists, children of privilege always lie about their "oppression" by the values that they were brought up in.

Otherwise, how else can they have their own... "STOOOOOOORY" to share with their fellow oppressed as their very own currency token ?

It harks back to the 80's 90's where , on the back of the anti-patriarchy cultural revolution of the 60s 70s , therapy groups etc would always encourage the demonisation of their own parents and families. It wasn't "did they oppress you?" but rather "HOW did they oppress you?".

This expressed itself in things like Julia Camerons "Artists Way" (very trendy in the 90s) which actually had good advice and activities for a nascent artist BUT which was laced with narcissism and self-indulgence. So there was a place for a woman who wanted to paint taking the pedal off the gas in her own personal life and going and, rather than staring at four walls (pre internet) and beating herself up for lack of inspiration just going and getting her nails done or going to a class that she wouldn't ordinarily take.

But this is the lifestyle of a single urban dwelling young woman. Middle aged middle class wine-aunts were kidding themselves that they could take this approach to their own lives, use 'treats' and new clothing acquisitions to become a great artist and thus achieve "self actualisation" - Maslow actually changed his hierarchy to have "self-transcendence/selflessness" at the top (but the media won't tell us that little factoid).

The nexus of humble arts and crafts, creativity, self-help literature, narcissism etc. has now been taken over by the (((Banks))) and their politicisation of Everything..
So now a middle class brat groomed from her comfy home life to her place in congress (which she got by literally auditioning) now thinks that getting her nails done is one in the eye for her evil family and somehow is a strike against the evil imperialist patriarchal oppressors.

In this video we see a monied Jewish Californian woman very well connected talk about how a young mother's first duty is to herself as an artist ha ha ha..
No joke. Notice how as an aside she says in this video that 16 Candles with Molly Ringwald is (now) "very problematic" .
Notice more importantly that towards the beginning she says that a young mother whose "job" is to raise a family should prioritise writing, whilst
- other peoples money pays for her and her kids,
- whilst she pretends that her real "job" is being a writer and thats the most important narcissistic thing at that stage of her life, not toddlers needing their Mom...
- all this whilst her kids are utterly dependent on her and other people are working THEIR jobs to free her up to be with her loved ones not so that she can treat them as an inconvenience.
Truly a moneyed, self-indulgent narcissistic cult member.

And everyone whose product she pushes and most writers she references are all from her Jewish Tribe.. whilst because a genuine strong female lesbian writer Highsmith (a genuinely good oppression-class female writer which makes her a rarity of one in that class) had a dislike of her ethnic group the Jews' and their influence, for that she says that Highsmith alone, not anyone else, had "terrible politics" and was "not a good human being".. :) :)
Note also that she says she went to "LA Film School" and had a great time but that she "didn't enjoy being a director". Eh, what? This ditzy idiot directed a movie straight out of school? Oh yes, but she didn't enjoy it. She directed Alicia Silverstone in a million dollar movie.. and that was an important part of her "jOuRRRNeYYY" because she learnt that "she didn't really LIKE being a director".
Truly these jews have a problem with reality in comparison to the rest of us.
Explaining to us the need for a "theme" in our writing, 'whats the theme?' but then totally unable to find the theme of Talented Mr Ripley as well when she was put on the spot ha ha ha
What insane level of privilege are these Harpies dwelling in such that getting to direct a movie in Hollywood is made to sound like a Summer Job and doing their nails is a blow against tyranny lol .

That doesn't mean anything.

Grade inflation is real. Add in her female and latino demographics and she was going to graduate no matter what.

I've seen high school kids with a better understanding of economics than this econ "graduate". She has trouble answering econ 101 questions in the press.

She's a bag of rocks with a bra.

True. The name of the university often doesn't mean much anymore either when I think about videos I have seen of students in formerly respected universities like Yale or UC Berkeley acting pretty dumb.

If Alex Stein keeps up his excellent work he may need his own thread.


This is great, because he's mocking her for perfectly valid reasons without even being insulting, and also doing it in a particularly offensive way to the left. Basically filtering through the sarcasm it's "look at this immodestly dressed woman who wants to kill babies, repent!"

I'll add to this that many politicians, bureaucrats, and journalists who are against us have essentially been bullied into quitting their jobs. Recently there was the disinformation czar and one could even argue Boris Johnson.

The low IQ third world invader wanted to come here and mess with good men and say "yea, mob violence is great political activity" well then get ready sweetie, because the anger on the right is something you can't even imagine.

The funny part is this fraud talking tough on twitter a day later, how she wanted to "slug" him but in the video you can see she is confused and scared and lays down and plays nice and throws a peace sign and runs away.

He talked about why he does it (i.e., trolling the board, politician, etc.) when he was on the Tucker Carlson Show a few days ago.
