    The Netflix doc that follows her and other progressive Dems (the other 3 lost their races) was a good watch. It's nice to get a look behind the scenes and see how important grass roots organization can be. She took down a man who had everything stacked in his favor to not be taken down, and did it by working insanely hard and working with incredibly passionate people. Politics aside, there was a lot of stuff there that we just don't ever see.

    I think there's something for most anyone of any political persuasion, so long as you have any open mind.

    it makes more sense to be "obsessed" with people in politics that are continually in the news, than someone from PSD.

    this is something that I would expect someone on the right to say.
    "This is a technique of the left wing media, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it."

    but that isn't a quote from the right, it's what AOC said about GOP.

    An integral part of conservatism right now, and especially conservative media, involves creating a version of the left that just simply isn't true. Just listen to Tucker or any of his cretinous ilk talk about anything the left is proposing. It's why Mitch called Joe Freaking Biden a socialist the other day, and we spent 8 years hearing how Obama was a communist hell bent on destroying our freedoms. It's why they default to "well why don't you move to Venezuela", basking in their ignorance. It's why, I think, these weirdos in this forum cling to every little word these progressive women say.

    In the end, they're promoting policy that undeniably seeks to help out the average person in this country. The right is not offering those solutions at all. So they have to work harder. They have to explain to us how what we see is not actually what we see. They're painting an alternate reality. And it's part of the reason why we're so often left with the insanity we've seen in this and the Omar thread from people like FNK. There are other reasons too (I know it might trigger some people, but it certainly has to do with their age, their sex and, especially in Omar's case, her religion).

    But it's also because they just don't have answers to the problems these women are seeking to fix. That's why we see all of this behavior instead. So instead, they smear away. They fixate on the dumbest and most meaningless things. And frankly, they just project. All the time.

    In group/out group and a need to focus on and attack the other sides, mostly trying to do so one the extremes and attribute it to individuals on the other team as a whole.

    You are spot on as to why this keeps happening and we see it all over the forum with ridiculous/no validity of arguments and a focus on some sort of team game aspect (whether it be that Omar is muslim or democrat the point is it's a bad team to some as seen in that thread). AOC thread and Omar thread are full of it and it often comes from the people who admit to watching said fox news haha (sluggo/FNK).

    I mean the one about AOC gardening is yet another example, imagine actually spending time upset about stuff like this with Donald Trump as president and also trying to defend him on a regular basis for much much worse stuff. It has nothing to do with being excited about gardening lol who would actually care about that in politics, it has everything to do with the team sport and attacking people on other teams. The policy or logic behind ideas no longer matter it is about beating the other side. See the environmental threads in comparison to the threads designed on attacking Omar without validty etc. and the volume just doesn't compare despite one of these having far more validity/reason for concern as a whole.

    It isn't about creating the best policy to help America anymore, it is about having the in group win at all costs no matter the validity etc.

    I think these observations are accurate and one of the reasons why this forum is increasingly dreary.

    We rant and rave about a phrase that some first term congresswoman said or about gardening as magic, but we can’t get even a moderately viable dialogue about something critical like the environment.

    By the way, I recommend Bill McKibben’s newest book (Falter).

    I didn't read anything past here as I'm sure it's more gibberish nonsense.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keeps putting herself in the news. she is this new Democrat toy for the media to talk about, both media on the left and right, but I'm not supposed to cover what she has been saying that has been covered by many different media? GTFO.

    Trump says stupid stuff and people can comment on that, but when AOC says stupid stuff then nobody should say anything? this is hilarious, a double standard, and hypocritical. this is PSD.

    I have also been someone to say Trump has said stupid things (plural). I had many in the Trump says thread before it was locked, and many since then as well.


    AOC is a politician that gets covered by the media. she puts herself in the news. but those here at PSD don't want to talk about the stupid things she does or says? hypocrites.
