that guy in AZ Wrote: AOC is on the cover of TIME magazine this week. Although she is not the youngest person ever to make the cover of TIME (Malala was only 17 when she made it), AOC IS the youngest woman ever elected to Congress - and the conservatives hate her.
By now, it is very clear that the right wing HATES AOC, which is why they are putting ouT crazy stories about her.
Here is an example that I got today from GOP USA:
Over a span of 42 days, FOX mentioned AOC's name 3181 times.
The network's obsession over AOC does not mean that they have given up on Hillary Clinton, who still gets mentioned A LOT more than 2 years after the 2016 election. The graphs contained in the link below make for interesting reading, but here are two facts that REALLY jump out:
1) From December 2017 to May of 2018, they showed her face 2126 times.
2) After Trump announced his Muslim travel ban, the story made the front page of the New York Times 4 times. FOX, of course, did not cover it at all.
Now that there are three Muslim women (gasp!) in Congress, FOX is having a field day, and their rabid base is all fired up. A FOX viewer in New York was recently arrested for threatening to kill Ilhan Omar, and that was BEFORE she made the cover of the New York Post.
Michael Gerson had a good column this morning that details why Trump is a threat to religious freedom.
His last paragraph is worth repeating:
Religious freedom is either rigorously equal, or it becomes an instrument of those in power to favor or disfavor religions of their choice.
She has them talking which equals them being worried.
Female, non-white and Democrat. 3 strikes you're out. I love that there's extreme enthusiasm. How many other politicians are being discussed ? 2 or 3 perhaps.
How many are being discussed by voters under 50 ? That's right. Our choices are too young or too old.
About 5 days ago a lady told me that she won't vote for Bernie because he's too old. She was an 81 year old Democratic voter.
Here is another gem from the Washington Post this morning:
I hadn't thought about the fact that Trump is actually the reincarnation of Joseph McCarthy, but that is actually pretty close to the truth.
“Have you no decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?” McCarthy had none and neither does his heir in slime, Donald John Trump.
