Loving all the white men in the comments insisting they're definitely not racist and totally informed paragons of progressiveness who just "respectfully disagree" when not even a year ago they were slinging racist slurs at South Carolinians and taking homophobic jabs at Pete Buttigieg.

Regarding AOC I liked her for all of three minutes before she started attacking Democrats and derailing *actual* progressive legislation. I'm sorry, but we all know the GND will never get out of committee and if not for that damn thing we could have had several green bills passed by now EVEN with the Senate as it is. I do not care if AOC thinks her way is the best; even if it were she can't get it passed and she doesn't do enough vote whipping, research, or writing to actually put the "progress" in progressive.

Very much looking forward to her being redistricted out of politics. She's utterly useless and statistically speaking she's turning not only her own bright blue district purple but doing the same for a number of other districts.

Honestly if people want to stan an ACTUAL young progressive woman of color in the House they should stan Lauren Underwood. Her record is FAR better and she doesn't trash actual effective progressive legislators for Instagram shares.

As for Nancy Pelosi, the woman is Batman. I'm so tired of these fauxgressives pretending they're not just sexist and getting all upset that an experienced woman has power. Pelosi rocks.
