I love how the right conflates wanting more socialistic policies like free health care, more affordable education and a more progressive taxing system to a marxist dictatorship of Venezuela.

Being totally fair, that's been the prevailing attitude for generations.  Prolly even since the 50s.

I wonder if Democrats get to go "ThIs iS wHy AoC wOn" after 2024 when Republicans make any kind of criticism about her?

But that's not really a fair comparison, Trump criticism had more real criticism than any of the AOC complaints that I've seen. This even though there was the occasional joke about his looks.
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!

Yeah, I don't know who's more annoying: them or the "nOt reAl sOcialIsm" idiots.

Agreed. Much as I like to make fun of the "two scoops" nontroversy, I can definitely say substantive criticism of Trump seems to be far more common (or at least far more prominent) than that of AOC.

Maybe this is just me but I only saw the "two scoops" thing coming from places like T_D.

Hey remember when FOX shat the bed because Obama wore a tan suit and had mustard on his burger?

Of course. Just goes to show that, contrary to what some Trump supporters seem to believe, denigrating politicians for stupid reasons is nothing new. They keep talking about how this kind of criticism is "unprecedented", when it goes back to at least Ancient Rome.

There are valid reasons to criticize AOC. She demonstrated a frankly rather worrying lack of understanding about unemployment. And when she got called out for her factual errors, she downplayed the importance of objective fact. Those are good angles to criticize her. But who the hell cares about her dancing? Why should we dismiss her ideas out of hand instead of actually analyzing them? She has her faults and certainly shouldn't be treated as a sacred cow, but please, criticize her for substantive reasons.

A better example might be the weird thing with the burgers and pizza. Saw a whole lot of blue tickmark people up in arms about that. Which is weird because the guests were literally college football players, the love eating that stuff. Lotta calories to burn when they play football.

You have no idea the diets professional athletes have.

I got the impression that the athletes were mainly just confused by the Mc catering.

I eat Carls Jrs burgers. Some of the athletes I train with do prefer McDonalds Burgers, but only because its cheaper. Carls Jrs is like 5 or 6 dollars a burger.

Maybe college football players they could afford carls jr if we actually paid instead of just being milked by the universities.

And @Askold I saw a few pictures from the players while they were there, they seemed happy enough, like free food is free food mate they're not gonna be mad about it, they might prefer other things but theres no problem with artery clogging every so often.

They could potentially lose their contracts and scholarships for taking so much as a gas station sandwich from someone.  "Exploited" doesn't even begin to describe it.
