One thing the right wing media needs to look out for. By "normalizing" the word "socialist" in their coverage, they are amplifying their far left message. Trumps "message" was amplified by the MSM in 2016, and helped him win. The same lesson can be applied to overcoverage of the far left.
Those that are saying "its great for trump when aoc or Omar gets coverage" better be careful about what they ask for. You should hope for more coverage of Biden. If the dems are going to win in 2020 (they have a better than 50/50 chance), Biden is the best choice we can hope for.

FWIW, that point was not at all clear in your earlier posts, IMO.
Uhh, maybe because when Peter Doocy from Fox tried to ask her a question while walking along side her through the halls, she completely ignored him. Wouldn't even look at him.

Just saying.

It seems that every time she has a chance to de-escalate, she simply puts her foot in her mouth. Yum!

For Rep. Ilhan Omar, 2 apologies in 3 weeks for 'anti-Semitic tropes ...
https://www.washingtonpost.com/.../r...emitic-tropes/
Feb 11, 2019 - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has been a member of Congress for a little over a month. But for the second time, she has apologized for circulating ...


Though this is a bit of a surprise:

Did he ask her that question?

The point isn't whether she'll let Fox interview her or not. The point is Trump was asked, and still managed to fuck up the answer. Thus, it is not a valid comparison to Omar.

Again, just because I know people don't read entire threads, this is not - IN ANY WAY - me endorsing what Omar said or the milktoast "backlash" from the Dems in Washington.

He was asking if she was anti-Semitic. I believe this was before the Duke endorsement. I know your stand, the comment was just to bring out that she did ignore and probably will continue to ignore Fox.

Mike, Mike, Mike.... What day is it...

Happy Hump Day everyone.

She's already wearing out her welcome.

"There's definitely some buzz going around about it, but it's more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they're going to run against her or contemplate it. There's definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her," said state Sen. Ron Latz (D), who represents a portion of Omar's district.

What a divisive little lib...

Good to see unity in denunciation...

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/17/polit...ism/index.html

Quote:
Omar Jamal, Steve Hunegs, Mohamed Ahmed and Avi Olitzky agree on the characterization of language Omar used: When Omar talked about Jews "hypnotizing" the world, it was anti-Semitic. When she said American support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins baby," referring to $100 notes, it was anti-Semitic. And when she questioned whether American Jews had loyalty to Israel, it was anti-Semitic, they all said.
Local leaders want her to understand why her words were causing so much pain.

Exaggerate much? She represents, and was voted in by, her district. All in accordance with the procedures laid out by the Constitution. Curiously, is there anyone on this forum who lives in her district?

Yes, probably an LLC owned by people who don't live in the district.

You'd imagine incorrectly. It's a pretty huge district and of course there's no way to know who voted for her and what they drive. But much of the parts of town in it have some pretty nice housing and probably a metric shit ton of bimmers.
