Is that your argument?

That makes no difference.

Actually, she didn't need to respond at all.

As I said, I disagree with that characterisation. But she's right in that she isn't obligated to respond to, much less accept, Shapiro's offer.
Ok fine we can agree that she didn't have to respond at all.

Was it right for her to compare it to being cat called?

Is there a brief on her I can read?
She went on an anti-Israel rant in an interview, made some incorrect statements, and awkwardly admitted "I'm not geopolitical expert!" when called on it.

She has claimed that she is against capitalism. Claims to be a democratic socialist, but frequently hints that she is keen on full-blown socialism.

She has claimed that she will help "turn states red", inciting rumours that she is actually an RNC plant who is there to make the DNC look bad.

She confused the entire US military budget ($700b) for the budget increase, and falsely claimed that the military didn't ask for any increase.

The list goes on. Basically, she does zero research on anything she talks about, but resonates with young people because she offers them free ****.

Ha Ha, almost everyone of those points are Fox headlines. Too funny.

Best you google and make up your own mind.
I will, just to confirm that you didn't intend any comment on the post other than to say the accusations sound like something from fox news? Nothing else intended by it?

I thought you were commenting on them so I asked, my mistake

Not sure what you are getting at. I was just saying it read like something Fox would say and it reminded me of some articles I had seen like this one.

Personally I am not a fan but good on her for beating an opponent who may have taken his voters for granted.

I find that when a name comes up on BF, I like to research myself, it was just a thought if you wanted to know more about her.

Nothing sinister about my post at all.

Good vid here with Ocasio-Cortez outlining her principal policies herself & also an expanded commentary from Noam Chomsky on where she fits into the current overall political landscape.....Gotta love her Nue Jerzey accent too.

As Chomsky explains it, the establishment is currently hell-bent on a class-warfare by it's current actions of tax-scams, de-criminalising corporate white-collar crime & it's assault on any & all social-security.

Not really just questioning 'facts' as you didn't provide any sources. Do continue...
So you acknowledge that they were all facts? Thanks for your contribution.
Are you capable of explaining what 'hints shes keen on full blown socialism' means?
You took issue with one comment out of many? Well ok. Democratic socialism is still powered by capitalism. She has made anti-capitalism comments, and has a pro communism history.

Trolling or lack comprehension? Try providing sources for your 'facts'.

I provided a Fox example that seems to match one of your facts.

You need to cease from buying this dialectical swill & snake-oil, from the fascist owned & run corporate MSM, that any policy that's pro egalitarian, is somehow anti-capitalist by association or definition.

The U.S constitution is prefaced upon a government of the people, by the people, for the people....Not of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations.

The Corporations & the establishment that runs them, are not the U.S.....Although that's what they'd all have you believe.

This entire Trump versus the Corp Democrats is a farcical cover for the continued rape & pillaging of the U.S people & people everywhere all over the world, for that matter......They are nothing but crooks & robber barons, getting fat upon other peoples labour & other countries resources.

No sensible person buys this phony dialectical play....Including the latest round of Russian sanctions prefaced upon yet more lies & unfounded evidence.

That's why people believe Assange, Chomsky, Hearst, Hedges & Pilger et al & not these fabricated, bought out shills; Be it Fox, Sky CNN or MSNBC.... Who'll tell you what their corporate pay-masters tell them to....In other words, anything but the truth of the matter.

The rest of the world is turning against the corrupted U.S.....and for good reason.

It's not very difficult, I know, but watch this lass take the Fox shills to pieces here.

Confusing 'Socialism' with fundamental basic human rights & a healthy, humane society.....Just exposes to what extent the establishment & corporate America has become completely dysfunctional & lost the plot & any point of balance altogether.
