Taxing the rich more has been a consistent belief of mine even before I'd say I drifted more towards the left and helps us achieve both of those things, and much much more. That is also not anything a part of any culture war.

    YI will say, you've been less of a Bothsides Barry lately. I have noticed that.
    I think the fact that politicians will screw us out of universal healthcare and reasonable measures for improving the environment just to "win" against their opponents is part of that culture war.

    I hate the Democrat party because they are anti-progress to maintain power which they can do because they know they will get the majority of the votes regardless, I hate the GOP because they are ONLY about maintaining power.

    I loved the optic of her at a 30k plate dinner walking around with a tax the rich dress while her masked up help carried the end of her dress for her.

    I love that you don't allow the reality that the ticket was free for her and the dress was donated invade your enjoyment of "the optics."

    No, I'm fully aware that a politician got a really expensive gift from her rich friends.

    She has to be a republican plant. It's just too good.

    If you're invited - as NY elected officials frequently are - you don't pay to attend. It's not unique to her.

    The fact that we're still talking about it seems to be, though.

    Because your little commie gal who constantly preaches about how rich people are the root of all evil showed up to the most extravagant event of the year wearing a dress so gaudy it needed a government employee to operate the tail end of it.

    "Hur dur, she didn't pay."

    No **** she didn't pay, lol. Commie politicians don't actually pay for things.

    And I love that the help all have to be masked while the "sophisticated" don't have to abide. Rules for thee...

    The fact that you’re still whining about “commie” is a bit sad. That **** was 50 years ago. It died back with McCarthyism. Find a new boogieman!

    Hey, how many more galas with the elite does she need to attend before those broken promises start working out?

    She's an absolute gift from the left and it's hilarious watching you guys desperately defend her obvious hypocrisy.

    It's Animal Farm 2021 but the pigs were replaced with a horse.

    She seems to really upset you.

    I wonder if you were this upset when Mitt Romney attended? Or the multiple years Trump attended?

    And of course, all guests had to wear masks while indoors and pass a PCR test that day as well as show proof of vaccination, but again I understand that you're not really into letting reality get in the way of some impotent rage.

    To quote Russell Brand “When I was poor and I complained about inequality they said I was bitter, now I’m rich and complain about inequality they say I’m a hypocrite. I’m starting to think they just don’t want to talk about inequality.”

    Don’t you know that it’s racist to talk about AOC in any negative way on here…

    Yeah, this is one thing that if Special was complaining about I would agree with him. I get the tickets were comped and the dress was designed for her but its just a bad look all the way around. The message is hypocritical to the event and how much that dress probably cost to make.

    I don't hate AOC but she clearly likes the attention that her meteoric rise has given her. Maybe the backlash will make her circle back to her core values in wanting to help people because as much as I don't always agree with her politics, I think she has a stronger conscience than most other politicians. This wasn't that though.

    It someone gave me court side tickets for the Knicks and I went would I then be a hypocrite if I said I think wealth inequality is a problem and that the rich don’t pay there fair share in taxes? If so please explain how bc im missing it. I can only guess this is similar to how some people get mad when a poor person has something nice.

    Is there a way she could talk about wealth inequality without her opponents criticizing her for it?
