    I'm pretty sure you meant to type "are" and not "aren't" in that first sentence but I think I get your point.

    I'm not all in on AOC or anything but damn she's gotten into people's heads.

    Even if she did get rich from that documentary, is that so bad?

    Time magazine has had like 50 articles on her, She’s been on 60 minutes, she’s been on every channel. Now ts is a loon but let’s not pretend she’s not been given 100 times the coverage the Republican Confresswoman from the same state got.... what’s her name again....exactly

    heya abiG,

    worry not.

    Mr. D'Souza will produce another two hours of rubbish in the next year or two just for folks like you...and Netflix is just going where the money is.

    the market has spoken. try not to be too bummed out about it.

    They pretend the market speaks to promote their idiocy to rubes like yourself.

    1. She didn't take $10 million from a corporation. There isn't any mention of pecuniary gain by AOC.

    2. That's not corruption. If you'd like instances of actual corruption and conflicts of interest, we can talk about the millions of dollars the Republican president actually has taken in private patronage from foreign governments with whom we have economic and political relationships.

    hi there abiG,

    i am a rube?

    i don't even have Netflix, lol. i don't have a dog in this fight. Netflix is just doing what it feels will be profitable for them.

    like i said, the market has spoken. no need to insult me, my friend.

    I’m sure she will pay 70% of this into taxes to lead by example right ?

    You are a rube for believing this about the market and not about an agenda. The fact you thought this had something to do with you having netflix drives this point home.

    hi abiG,

    i apologize for improperly discerning the source of your insult, i get it now though.

    you feel that Netflix is kind of acting like a PAC, promoting a socialist/communist/alinsky/soros style agenda and not just trying to make money.

    and you call me a rube.

    lol.

    Since we're talking about rubes, what's the over/under on how many posters will repeat the "70% in taxes" thing before the thread ends while exposing themselves as either completely disingenuous or completely ignorant of how progressive taxation works? Right now we're at two. Who wants a piece of the action?

    EDIT:Or the idea that AOC is getting 10 million from Nexflix, I haven't counted those yet. SMH.

    Another @abiG thread predicated on a total lack of reading comprehension?

    Ok, so let's assume she is a hypocrite and a monster.
    Would that change the policies she is pushing? No.
    Would that make progressive taxes different? No. Would that make universal healthcare wrong? Don't think so. Would that make a border wall (wink) any more efficient? Hell no.
    So what the fuck are we even talking about?

    Politicians fool you only if you allow them.

    Plus.
    AOC is no socialist.

    Cultural Marxism is taught, along with white guilt, in the public schools. The media is complicit, etc. Leftists like you who refuse to acknowledge reality don't do any favors for your position, at least with people with an IQ greater than a lemon's.
