Too bad that this conversation is likely to be heard widespread. It could convert a lot of minds.

humphrey

It is quite obvious who AOC will endorse after listening to this.

I thought there might still be room for warren in there.

I like that she talked about politicians who become lobbyists. Good that she talked that includes dems.

humphrey

Benny you should add “evening open thread” to this post’s title.

AOC on moderates.

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/433360-ocasio-cortez-on-moderates-we-view-cynicism-as-an-intellectually-superior

Progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) harshly rebuked of political moderates, saying the widespread admiration of centrist ideologies is misplaced.”

“We view cynicism as an intellectually superior attitude, and we view ambition as youthful naivete,” she said Saturday at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin.

“When we think about the greatest things we have ever accomplished as a society have been ambitious acts of vision, and the ‘meh’ is just worshipped now, for what?”

Ocasio-Cortez is part of a group of progressive House freshmen who want to lurch the Democratic Party to the left, pushing hard for policies such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, which would fight climate change by investing in eco-friendly jobs.

I have disliked the word “lurch,” but maybe we should embrace it.

Nahhh. It’s the Hill. 😉

“Yank it left” is more like it. M4A, Fight for $15, free college, etc, etc are all popular with a mjority of Americans. Heck, even a majority of Republicans support M4A. Who doesn’t support these policies in these numbers? Our elected officials that’s who. Pelosi et all need to read the writing on the wall.

Neera doesn’t want the Clinton trolls to have any competition.

The troll wars! Very sci-fi.

Fox should not have Dem debates because they are rigged for Trump. If Fox is in any way pro Bernie, it’s because they stupidly think he will be easy to beat. Does this person think that Fox is somehow pro Bernie? 🤪

polarbear4

It was at least giving him a fair shake for now. Even called him a democratic socialist, which is really hard for MSDNC & CNN to spit out, from what I hear.

But yeah, I’m too lazy to bring up that tonight. Too much effort. I thought about it. Someone likely will.

jcitybone

Bernie should go on Fox himself. That’s a great way to reach the small part of their audience that is not completely on the dark side. Debates though no. Fox is a propaganda arm of the fascist Republicans. They are not out to help Bernie. If they ever seem pro Bernie it’s because the idiots there think that someone like Biden is more dangerous to Trump.

polarbear4

Agree. What did you think of the clip, though, not considering ulterior motives? Hmmm. I wonder if he would ask for that now—ask to go on Fox.

And according to the Morning Consult poll, Bernie is by far the most popular second choice for Biden voters. This will come into play when Biden’s views on issues become more widely known—no M4A, no GND, no free college, no big money out of politics, Wall Street forever, AIPAC is our friend, etc. etc. etc. Everyone already knows exactly where Bernie stands. Biden can only get away with being Obama’s VP without anything else for so long.

But the Democratic Party says that the state of Ohio is a lost cause in 2020.

Marco Rubio can shove it where the sun will never shine. I hope he chokes on it. Ditto for the other FL Senator.

According to the MSM there are no Yellow Vest protests.

You have to get the information from RT.

https://www.rt.com/news/453429-yellow-vests-water-cannon/

Police in Paris have deployed water cannon and tear gas against anti-government ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrators. As the protests enter their 17th straight week, the government has been accused of using excessive force.
Protesters took to the streets of Paris and other cities throughout the country again on Saturday, voicing their opposition to the economic policies of President Emmanuel Macron that they say benefit the rich but not the majority.

Although turnout has decreased since the Yellow Vests movement began in November, organizers claimed that 90,000 protesters showed up, while France’s Interior Ministry – whose figures are routinely questioned by the Yellow Vests – put that figure at 28,600.

Many videos at the link.

Oh they know already but they are trying to stop it! (last one)
