I guess that holds up based on what errors she's made. I don't know what she's accused of getting wrong.

Math, science, basic macro and microeconomics, history, the structure and processes of the federal government...

When have morally righteous, factually incorrect socialists ever gone wrong? At least she means well. What's the worst that can happen?

Maybe I'm not following her as closely as everyone else. The name she went by in school is a problem?

What was she factually incorrect about? Did she say 10 million Americans don't have health insurance when it's actually 7 million, so her belief that we need universal coverage is now invalid.

Trump implied that he thought Fredrick Douglas was still alive. It was good for a joke, but ultimately meaningless in the debate about whether or not his policies are driven by racism.

We need to build our government on facts, but if all of our points are invalid because of minor errors, then we might as well burn the whole thing down.

AOC is a gift and I fully support her crusade. May we all bathe in the blood of the ruling class. :)

She's a young attractive female challenging the ways of life that have worked out so well for so few.

It just means she's a poser who is not really "Alex from the Bronx" and as meaningless as Warren's DNA test. That doesn't matter to anyone but the whiniest of twitter losers as where a person grew up does not make them more or less qualified to do anything from a policy origination standpoint, it's their ability to apply both theoretical and practical understandings of relevant knowledge obtained over a life time that matters.

I find “you say you’re originally from the Bronx, but your family moved out when you were 5” to be a great example of the kind of inconsequential pedantic reach for a “gotcha” moment she’s referring to in her comments above.

Quote:

Gateway Pundit sees 18 million unique viewers a month. Or about 1/5 the total number of people who self identify as conservative, nationally. Not that that disqualifies them from being whiny twitter losers, but that’s a bit big to dismiss as a fringe. By comparison, InfoWars (which had a similar breaking news headline about Ocasio’s non-Bronx high school) gets 19 million and Time.com gets worldwide monthly traffic of about 68 million.

I'm a straight, white male. I can't fight for a system that is less biased against blacks, women, and gays?

Wasn't she working as a bartender when she decided to run for office?

What? I think you’re misunderstanding something in Strat’s post...
