Many sENSIBLE conservatives are saying what I am saying, all these silly ad hominem attacks these made up slanders and stupid jokes about the OC are just creating sympathy and notoriety for her making her stronger, the fact that you cant stick to issues , goes the sensible conservative argument, shows desperation and that maybe she is right. Stick to the issues say the ethical conservatives, point out the gaping flaws in her policies, and the many many failures and calamities of systems that called themselves socialist, point out with evidence how her platform and ideology would bankrupt the nation and help no one.. well i disagree but respect people that want to stick to the issues, it is so frustrating dealing with the middle school level of insults that has to be dealt with from the deplorables out there and you are Hillary was right about that, half this nation is scum

at least half

One of the GOP’s most relentless fixations among the new Democratic figures in the 116th Congress is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the young, far-left former bartender from the Bronx who has risen into national prominence as a champion of working people.

But based on an article in the Washington Post, Ocasio-Cortez is unfazed by the attention she is getting. In fact, she delights in it — and in how flat the GOP’s attacks on her have fallen:

Ocasio-Cortez, who has amassed more than 2 million Twitter followers and has emerged as one of her party’s most prominent national figures, seems to relish beating back the attacks.​
“It’s encouraging because this is my sixth day in Congress and they’re out of all their artillery,” she said in a recent interview. “The nude is supposed to be like the bazooka. You know, like, ‘We’re going to take her down.’ Dude, you’re all out of bullets, you’re all out of bombs, you’re all out of all this stuff. What have you got left?”​


The “nude” she is referring to is a picture of a naked woman in the bathtub with a marijuana vaporizer that circulated on right-wing message boards last week, purported to be of Ocasio-Cortez. In fact it wasn’t her — but by the time the hoax stopped spreading, the conservative Daily Caller had picked it up.​

A recent poll showed 59 percent of voters support her idea to tax income over $10 million at 70 percent, a proposal that would actually still be lower than taxes in the 1970s. Huge majorities agree with her on Medicare for All, too — 70 percent of voters, including 52 percent of Republicans, and other countries have clearly demonstrated it’s possible. And her proposal for a “Green New Deal” — which is essentially just a larger version of President Barack Obama’s controversial but highly successful green energy stimulus in 2009 — polls as high as 80 percent with the public.

With numbers like this, it is little wonder that the best “artillery” Republicans had about Ocasio-Cortez was to circulate a fake naked picture of her.
