    You realize that, whether you think she's calling for it or not, it's not like there's even the remotest chance the 'dismantling' would be like taking that lego skycraper you built totally down to individual pieces and starting over, right? It would be like the people...well you...triggered by defunding the police...it's the severity of the words that are more troubling than the actual requested actions. Dismantling, just like defunding re police, would amount to drastic reforms, but in steps, not let's blow it up and start over completely.

    So, did she call for a dismantling of America?

    It isnt the same thing, if it was you wouldn't have needed to post the Davis tweet at all. It wasnt quite inflammatory enough on it's own, so we got the davis tweet.

    What is the level of dismantling that she is proposing?

    simply wanting to dismantle everything is not saying what should specifically replace that.
    She didn't give any ideas, she will get there with time. Let's see what they have to offer before judging wether its good or bad.

    Exactly, it can potentially significantly improve the lives of tens of millions of americans. It can make this a significantly better country. We should all be striving for that.

    Not razzing you. Genuinely curious because even if we disagree you are clearly passionately entrenched in American politics and post nothing about Canadian politics, so just curious.
    I would love to move to America, but most of my family are here and I like having family/relatives close.

    she shouldn't be using the word dismantling. that is what she said, and people should be able to agree that using that word is extreme/radical.

    I can't say whether I would be for or against her ideas, I would like to see them. I imagine I might not agree, but I've agreed with her before so it could happen again. I need to see the ideas before I can know.

    If I said my team destroyed your team in a baseball game, would you take it literally? Or understand the word choice might be more for effect.

    Dismantling systems of oppression is an extreme/radical view? Why did you claim she said she wanted to dismantle the US? Why are you now editing her quite to simply dismantle? Is this at all an honest conversation?

    Haha, omg special!

    She gave her general approach regarding having a system which caters to citizens rather than private profits. I agree with this idea.

    She hasn't laid out actual specific protocol on how to accomplish that, that will come with time.

    Omar is radical!

    Why?

    She said all this stuff!

    No she didn't say that and you even quoted what she actually said without it being in there.

    SHE USED THE WORD DISMANTLING! RADICAL!

    not a good comparison. destroyed would be an exaggeration. wanting something done for what Omar is talking about should not be using words that are an exaggeration. it doesn't help towards a solution to be exaggerating to this level.
