Politics and Government / Re: Worst Political Cartoons

You know, I never saw her as stupid. She does annoy me, but for other reasons. Like she hasn't made the transition from activist to member of the U.S. Congress. That I believe leads to her emotional appeals over facts. Her Green New Deal is evidence of that. She's pushing way too far way to fast, but she's young yet.

No, her socialism in and of itself never bothered me. But, and this is key, I do not trust my government. Not one bit. Not to keep me safe, not to keep me educated, not to keep me healthy, not to stop crime, nothing. I don't think it's tin foil hat malevolence as much as it is incompetence and bureaucratic inertia. I think given the choice between the right thing and the wrong thing, they'll do nothing for 30 years then find some other third thing. That is not who I would willingly cede more responsibility to than absolutely freaking necessary.

So the National Republican Congressional Committee wants to flip 55 democrat house seats in 2020 using a message of Socialism vs Freedom.
Think this message is going to work come next year especially if Donald Trump still remains unpopular.

I think another factor is that, whatever her faults, she seems to genuinely understand and care about the plight of the economically disadvantaged. They're afraid said people might view her as an alternative to Trump. Since they think she's a bigger threat to them and their backers than Trump, they really don't want that to happen. So they're trying to make her look stupid and ridiculous, which isn't working.

Yeah, there are some on the right who realise that attacking Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is just making her more popular. The rest are pissing themselves at the thought that their donors might have to pay more money in taxes.

It's pretty bad when even Mike Cernovich says this is stupid:

Quote from: Mike Cernovich
Laughing at Trump, as the libs did, sure stopped him from being POTUS.

Laughing at AOC, as the cons are doing now, sure is hurting her.

Right?

A collection of AOC memes from one Alt-Right comment section. They are obsessed over her.

Society and History / Re: Gillete Ad Upsets Manosphere Crybabies

https://morningconsult.com/form/gillette-commercial-survey/

    Before watching the ad, 42% of consumers said they agreed Gillette “shared their values.” After watching, that figure increased to 71%.
    65% said the ad made them more or much more likely to purchase Gillette.
    84% of women and 77% of men responded positively or neutral to the campaign.

Looks like not many people were really upset about the ad. Despite the second row there, the study points out that there was no meaningful change in sales so at the very least this clearly did not upset many people. And particularly those who were customers of "Dollar Shave Club" and such said they now think of Gillette in a more positive way.

Chloe Bennett really needs to make up for her past if she doesn't want to be problematic af. On top of the whole name shit, she dated Logan fucking Paul. If that isn't betraying her fans (who expected a progressive actress) I don't know what is.Now that they broke up, she should date someone less likely to anger and frustrate her loyal fans.
