And the modern effective tax rate for them is somewhere around 15%, so....

And AOC is proving what a badass she is by floating sensible ideas on how to finance a Green New Deal.

Ironbite-and the Right Wing melts down.

And now the right wing is melting down because AOC suggested that Donald Trump is -GASP- racist!  And they want to know how ANYONE could possibly think that...

“I think sometimes a black may think they don’t have an advantage or this and that. I’ve said on one occasion, even about myself, if I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I really believe they do have an actual advantage.” Donald Trump

"A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market." Donald Trump
 1989


"I've got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes.... Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else... Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that's guy's lazy. And it's probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks." Donald Trump
 1991


"I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks." Donald Trump
 2011


"Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe!" Donald Trump
 2017


“Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him.” Donald Trump
 2016


Donald Trump refers to Alicia Machado, Miss Venezuela as "Miss Housekeeping." Donald Trump
 1997


“I think I might have more Indian blood than a lot of the so-called Indians that are trying to open up the reservations.”  Donald Trump
 1993


Trump repeatedly refers to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas.

“Our inner cities, African Americans, Hispanics are living in hell because it’s so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot. You’re living in poverty; your schools are no good; you have no jobs.” Donald Trump
 2016


Made the statement that all Immigrants of Haiti "All have AIDS." Donald Trump
 2017


"He is a member of a club or society, very strongly pro-Mexican, which is all fine. But I say he's got bias. I want to build a wall. I'm going to build a wall. I'm doing very well with the Latinos, with the Hispanics, with the Mexicans, I'm doing very well with them, in my opinion. And we're going to see, you're going to see, because you know what, I'm providing jobs. Nobody else is giving jobs. But just so you understand, this judge has treated me very unfairly, he's treated me in a hostile manner. And there's something going on.
When a woman can be a plaintiff in a case and then say, "I don't want to be" -- and you know why they don't want to be a plaintiff? They don't want her, the lawyers asked that she not be a plaintiff because they would have lost the case immediately.
I'm not talking about tradition -- I'm talking about common sense, OK? He's somebody, he's proud of his heritage. And I think that's great that he's proud of his heritage." Donald Trump
 2016 https://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/article/2016/jun/08/donald-trumps-racial-comments-about-judge-trump-un/


“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best — they’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Donald Trump
 2015

off-topic but i like that the right is so petty they tried to say AOC was bad because of some video where she danced in it. It was literally like they're about to re-enact the plot to footloose.

My favourite bit is that after realizing that complaining about AOC dancing backfired on them they instead went on to do two things simultaneously:

a) Claim that Republicans never complained about her dancing and that this is a Democrat/lefist lie. Instead all their complaints have been about her lack of skills and intelligence or her policies.

b) Complain about her dancing and clothing.

I forget which punchable-face-kid it was (possibly Charlie Kirk) literally said a and one of the commenters pointed out that he had already tweeted about AOC 30 times that week...
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

They also tried to say Beto O'Rourke was bad because he was in a rock band in college, so you may not be far off there...

Then again, they'd probably identify with the ministers who wanted to ban dancing in Footloose; they were "good God-fearing men" right?

I like those photoshops that make Charlie's face look smaller or turn him into an anime
https://www.reddit.com/r/ToiletPaperUSA/comments/aefj6k/libtards_owned_noevidence/

That entire sub is pretty funny. All memes about Kirk, Candace Owens, and Ben Shapiro and people like that.

“Attempt to shame politician with photoshopped nude pictures debunked by foot fetishist using Wikifeet”

That’s a real thing that happened.

That’s an actual news story that occurred.

What even is this timeline?

This why everyone, from Trump fans to Bernie Bros, hates the mainstream media.

But what about the Obama Boys?

this ongoing back and forth between AOC and McCain isn’t really about ‘socialism’ vs capitalism or even democract vs republican, it’s about someone whose had a real job vs someone who’s never even had to think about getting one. McCain’s just mad the help is getting uppity.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!

The right really does fear AOC for some reason.  Like they can't really marginalize her in a way that'll make her just go away.

Ironbite-that scares them.
