I doubt it will actually be a press conference where they answer questions. More than likely they will make separate comments and be done with it.

 

A conversation  with them means they yell the whole time and you get to add nothing

I have seen his posts and I have met him in person. He has the potential to be better. Instead, he decided to go full TOC. Then complained when he was called out on it.

lots of people have potential. unrealized potential is nothing more than a waste of space. while i agree with my last there, i'm not convinced the potential hasn't been maxed out.

When she gets to a certain point the handlers will fix her and her stupidity will be forgotten. The American attention span is the short. I think at some point it doesn't matter anymore.

 

AoC will be irrelevant after 2020.  Dems gonna primary her next year and if that fails NY State Dems will redistrict her out of a seat after the 2020 Census.

 

State machine won't let her near statewide office.  She might be lucky to make NYC Council with an eye on Mayor at some point.  Maybe hang it up for a stint on MSNBC until she's been forgotten enough to jumpstart her career with porn

So now you know what it's like to be accused of racism, when you don't think you made a racist comment.

 

This is the world that you've been a champion of during your 100 screen name postings.

 

The guy who called me a racist has met me and my family multiple times. That's a word maybe you toss around lightly. I do not and I don't toss it around here often either, even when that nutjob was fantasizing about killing muslims. 

 

I would think that if you're going to call someone that, you wouldn't do it on a message board. But that's my standard, not apparently his. 

 

I'm happy that you and him have a cheering section for that kind of behavior. Good that you all have each other. Hug it out boys.

  I think that some leftist cabal will think they have lightning in a bottle with her and will relocate her to SF or Seattle for purposes not quite clear at this time if she fails in NY.

again, to the the majority of people it is. Prolly an unfair question, but what makes a  statement racist in you mind? Dis Trump need to say " ya know, those 4 Black women need to go back to where they came from" to make it racist?

 

Yes.  He would actually need to say something malignant about race to make it racist.  Full stop.

 

Being openly hostile to someone with brown skin is not racist, unless you're hostile because of the color of their skin.  It's quite clear why the President is hostile.  The ideology of the individuals in question.  You can disagree with, even openly savage, a person of color for their ideas and opinions, and not be racist.

 

Quote

No, i will vehemently argue this point. Trump has not said all nations outside the US are chitholes etc, only those where the great majority of the populace is people of color.

 

...

 

Nearly every country hemorrhaging migrants and refugees are those where the overwhelming majority of the populace are people of color.

 

These are typically war torn Third World countries, collapsed failed socialist states, or nations controlled by junta or cartels which is why people are fleeing them en masse.  If these countries were any good, people would not be fleeing.  People are not flooding from Denmark into Syria.  People are not fleeing Canada for the greener pastures of Guatemala.

 

The President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele said it best: "They [migrants] fled El Salvador, they fled our country. It is our fault."

 

Quote

what did he not say? That immigrants were dirty? That they came here to breed?

 

I've never heard the "dirty" bit, but consider:

 

Migrants and refugees arriving at our Southern Border are often malnourished, impoverished, and disease ridden.  They are not inoculated, and carry all manner of disease.  The overwhelming majority of people who have died in Border Control custody arrived here deathly ill, after being dragged thousands of miles across a desert.

 

And most do come here to have children.  Birthright citizenship is a reality.  Further the President isn't the first person to comment on this.

 

The entire DNC electoral strategy is built on it.

 

Here, Melissa Harris-Perry delivers the message in a piece titled the "browning of America"  (2014)

That these 4 women should go back to where they come from? What part did he not say?

 

 

Only one woman was not from America.

 

And he didn't say she should go back to where she's from because of her race.  You did.

 

Again, it goes back to the first thing I said in this response:  it's about ideology.

The Antifa terrorist who as shot after charging the ICE building up here exclaimed that ICE centers are actually concentration camps.

 

Those are AOC's exact words.

 

Has anyone asked AOC if she condones his words and actions?

 

No? Really? Not yet?

 

Hmmmm. How odd. Perhaps I'll see it tonight on CNN.

For the last couple of years you have shied away from having an honest dialogue in favor of patronizing other members of the board.  When challenged to explain your thoughts, you run away, only to come back with another side swipe.  You revel at mocking the group think that you say happens here, yet rarely offer substantive counterpoints. 

 

When challenged today to explain exactly why Trump's comments are racist, you predictably ran away from the argument.

To the conspiracy true believers, sometimes I do, but not always. 

 

I contribute substantively as often as I feel like. As do you.

You want me to repeat what others have already said and what I’ve said? That would not add a lot. Plenz has mostly said what I would say. 

 

Trump made a racist remark. You disagree. Discussion about the same ensued. Someone called me personally a racist. That’s escalation from a guy I have met. I’m uncomfortable even discussing it like this but do it because I see it as symptomatic of the mess of this place. People aren’t acting like they would in person. Have a beer? No and mockery. Tailgate? No and mockery. 

 

Get personal if that’s the way you like it. I won’t.

Holy crap on a cracker! How did President Trump get so lucky? How did Nancy let them go out there? How did anyone think this was a good idea?? Rope to hang themselves? Are they the new face of the party? These sound bites will live forever...

They called him "the occupant", all pushed for impeachment, said he was credibly accused of serious crimes including Russian collusion, says he's making women drink from toilets, Omar repeated the "grab them by the *****" and "***** hole countries" lines (on live TV). They looked spoiled and out of touch. 

 

In other words, it will make them the story for the week -- not any of the candidates running for office. It'll make Nancy Pelosi have to go back into trying to prevent an impeachment push. That will deepen the civil war going on with the prog-left and establishment DNC. 

 

And more.

 

Here's a highlight --

Correct, he said nothing like that.  You stitched in the rest because for reasons known only to you and perhaps your hot yoga instructor, that's the way your mind works.  The fact that other people share your tendency to stitch in a similar fashion makes it  no more/less truthful than anything else. 

 

To boot, he did not tweet about 4 random people sitting on a bench outside a mall, he tweeted about political adversaries who do their own share of crap-throwing, and in some cases label their opponents in very harsh terms.  I'd think we could agree the rules are different for those in that realm? 

 

 

he has said every one of those things..every single one . I agree it was not about 4 random people, it was about women of color who ancestry is either African or Middle Eastern..it was targeted , on that we agree

Thank you for the thoughful reply

 

1) we will disagree that one must mention race to write/speak a racist idea. "Go back where they came from" breeding concept" are  statements most would say are racist statements, no mention of color.Have you ever heard anyone else say "breed" about humans having children. I see you said they they come here to have children, not they come here to breed.

 

2) And i must apologize to @leh-nerd skin-erd and you, and the board as it does seem i was wrong and it was Tucker Carlson who said the immigrants were "dirty"..nit Trump. That is my mistake

  While we are nitpicking I don't think that AOC is Middle Eastern or African unless something has been revealed via DNA testing.  I have no problem in being accurate in describing other people but lets get it right as much as possible.

Democrats: working every day to ensure all Americans can thrive and prosper by spending countless hours pointing fingers and standing in useless judgement.

 

Certainly good to see there aren't other pressing issues to take up their time and can concentrate on this.  

 

If the resolution passes, how many more immigrants in detention will have a bed to sleep in tonight or tooth paste or a shower?

 

How many homeless people will be taken off the street?

 

How many opiod addicts will get treatment?

 

Will the budget now balance?

 

How many new people will get health insurance at a reasonable cost?

 

Will it do anything to ease income inequality?

No, "go back to where you came from" is not at all racist AND NOT what he tweeted.  On the Carlson comment - context, video or some link to what he said? 

 

AOC, Omar and others DO deserve the criticism they've been getting from the right and from some in their own party.    They continually invoke the race card even when there is no such linkage.
