Not yet. But if they win the civil war now taking place in the Democrat Party, they will "represent the entire party". You can count on it!

I'm a never Trump independent, so lets at least try to have some honest discourse or you have no more credibility that the far right wingers here that I have on ignore.

Can I put a mod on ignore???? I will if you keep claiming you only hear about AOC from right wingers here.

P.S. I feel sorry for anyone if they're unable to put some of the resident RWNJ's on ignore. We have a few dozen that are bonkers.
Yeah, I was mainly being flippant. AOC is frickin' everywhere. To me she is just trump on the opposite end of the spectrum. Attention mongering, talking big without experience, extremism. I've posted before she is giving great competition to who I dislike more, her or Trump. Again, I find them very similar. My sis and I were discussing her, (she is a strong Dem, I'm not), and even she is not so sure about her.

I have no one on ignore, I'm not even sure if I can.

Good post. The Trump comparison is apt.

You have my deepest sympathies if you cannot put some of the posters here on ignore.

It's funny- these psychos even bite their own kind. When you have a dog like that, it is best to put it down.
I was just reading the linked article about how the Gilroy garlic festival murderer who killed 2 small children and a young adult fit the pattern of hate, fueled online.

"...some experts see signals that the Gilroy shooting may fit a pattern of mass killers whose views have been sculpted online. Many of them follow a similar script: Before raising their guns, they disseminate messages on social media, as though to establish themselves as warriors for a larger cause even though they are about to target innocent people.

“There’s a motivating factor here that’s much more personal ... than extremist ideology,” said Erroll Southers, a professor at the University of Southern California who specializes in violent extremism..."

When I read responses like the ones above, I worry about this just being the place some posters establish themselves before going forward and taking action with the threat posted. That police officer who posted about killing a congresswoman on Facebook comes to mind.

The Justice Democrats PAC have recruited 5 more candidates that will run in 2020.
Their long term goal is for Progressives to take over the Democratic party.

Like the Trumpsters took over the GOP? I can only hope Dems have more common sense. I'm running low on hope at this point.

It's hardly a perception. It's more like the squeaky wheel gets the grease. They are the new radical fanatical Socialist left and have appointed themselves the leaders of the party.

Even Nancy Pelosi can't control them and most of the rest of the party lines up with them every time they come up with another wacky idea. If anyone dares to speak out against them they're RACIST and are attacking women of color.

They have the party by the short hairs and everyone knows it.

They really don't. They are wreaking some havoc, but not really accomplishing anything. Perhaps they will start to see that they are causing harm. And by "they" I mean AOC, I haven't really heard much from the others. But Trump is doing a great job of getting more people to like them over him. I mean you have a mouthy junior level congressperson who has a low approval rating, then Trump says something TOTALLY offensive, and people like the congressperson more, because most cannot abide by some of the racist things Trumps says. So both AOC and Trump and helping turn moderates to one side or the other, though not in manner in which they intended it.

On the contrary. Deleting an erroneous post is a sign of the Times showing responsibility.
