What has the accuracy of jim's post to do with toad kissing? Are you agreeing or disagreeing that the Party has changed?

At one time the Congressman did mirror the people in the Dist., but the Dist changed he did not. The people spoke and a new person has arrived. All that is arriving from the far right enablers are 3 year old kids dragged into court and told to represent them self. At least this new candidate is not a Dictator maker like the far right enablers.

 

Apparently she is from a District in which the Dems prefer socialism. What has that to do with 3 year old kids, Dictator, enabelers, or President Trump?


 


Just that Trump and his dictatorial policies are pushing American voters to the left.

What are her policies that are truly "socialist", instead of it just being a new favorite buzzword on the right to try to smear Democrats? You can call anything socialist, but that doesn't mean it really is.

 

Socialism:  any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/socialism


Why is it that people who praise socialism and socialists consider the term a "smear". 

 

BTW - that is only part of the Webster definition.

You have never said anything about verbatim posts from liberals without any attributes to the source.  First you complain about sources from sites that doesn't meet your approval, now it's about doing the same as your fellow liberals and quoting verbatim. 

 

You do know that you can use that feature called 'Report Inappropriate Content' at the lower left of posts.

 

Further where is the link to the HILL that you claim Jim is copying from?

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez praised socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “the future” of the Democratic Party on Tuesday.

 

Liberal radio host Bill Press said during a Tuesday interview with Perez that Ocasio-Cortez was able to take out longtime congressman Joe Crowley in the New York primary. Ocasio-Cortez campaigned on abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and guaranteeing health care and housing as basic human rights.

 
 

“What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?” Press asked.

Perez glossed over Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policies and instead focused on the fact that she is a woman, noting that his “daughters” were very excited about her victory.

“Well, my daughters — I have three kids, two of whom are daughters, one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because, you know, she really represents the future of our party,” Perez replied. “She ran a spirited campaign.”

Keep in mind that is what the enablers do. They post what they are told  word for word. They know or understand nothing about the subject except the leader said post it. The enablers work to make sure Trump will be the dicator of the US, just as the German enablers did for Hitler in Germany.

Could be, actually. With Trump using government purchasing power to determine winners and losers along with destroying free enterprise between nations. We could be meeting in the middle on this.

That's hilarious coming from a Republican. The GOP is the party that kissed Prince Trump and turned into his toads.
