Way to sidestep the accountability.
Then, typical AOC, as the discussion reaches a close, just circles it back around to how she’s a victim to ‘violent’ internet culture attacks.
The whole intention of AOC being on the show was to discuss her support of Sanders, so of course she wanted to ensure she didn’t ridicule the guy.
According to Daily Caller:
McCain brought the topic to the table, saying that she had personally been the recipient of attacks that she found to be both misogynistic and violent.
“The one thing that connects women on the left and women on the right, at least a lot of guest co-hosts, guests that come on, is the abuse that we have all been subjected to by the Bernie bros,” McCain began. “It is by far the most violent, most misogynistic, the most sexist, the most harmful. My mother has cried over doctored photos that the Bernie Bros have sent.”
McCain went on to say that, as far as she was concerned, Sanders had not done enough to distance himself from the attacks made in his name, saying only that he had dismissed them by saying that they did not represent him.
“It’s disgusting and vitriolic,” McCain continued. “You’re an extremely powerful woman. How do you feel that he’s attached to this deeply misogynistic and I would go so far as to say violent sector of people?”
“I think internet culture can often be very toxic,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “Whether we are cognizant of it or not, it nearly always concentrates on women, people of color, and we experience the brunt of it. I think that to a certain extent we have to always reject hate, reject vitriol, and denounce that kind of behavior.”
The whole henhouse just wrapped it up with, “yup, we gotta stop that!”
Seriously? I’ve seen better accountability in a State Farm commercial.
If this had been a discussion about Trump supporters, I can bet my left elbow that they would have been ripping into Trump.
Maybe I’ll be able to take AOC more seriously once she comes up with an actual educated justification for limiting cow farts.
