I think it’s more likely sexism. Think about the last few years, who are the bogeymen? Obama? Yes, but he was president. Who else? Hillary, Pelosi, and now AOC. AOC is a junior congresswoman in a group of 500 plus people. I don’t think the average Republican nut (like my father) is necessarily sexist, but the people at Fox who are deciding who the base is supposed to hate are sexist.

Yep, Republicans are just obsessed with AOC. They aren’t responding to [a Democrat that has been getting massive amounts of attention from the media or anything]comment image)… guess it’s just racism!

You know what is weird? Half the Democrats are women and there are tons of black members of Congress. Weird they single these two out if they are racist.

My best guess at a valid reason would be that they are the most prominent faces of the democratic party at the moment, so the focus from the opposition is going to be on them.

Because the republicans know their base soaks that racist shit up, and that the Democrats are too pussy to even defend their own people.

It’s definitely racism among the rubes, but the institutions who fan the flames are scared because these two congresswomen have actual left wing politics (rare among Dems), which threatens the GOP’s investors’ (and politicians’) stranglehold on wealth and power.

I guarantee you that every frumpy old white Republican is furiously masturbating to them every night while doing the “alt right chuckle”. They are sexually and politically frustrated.

Maybe it’s cause they say the worst stuff. I respect a few Democrat members of Congress that represent my district or the districts of my close friends (I live in a heavily Blue area) but a lot of the coverage of Congress goes to Ocasio-Cortez and Omar (from right and left sources) and they both seem to be kind of the absolute worst. The right media spends all their time attacking those two and the left spends all their time defending them

To be fair AOC is using this to her advantage. The more publicity she has the more power to change peoples minds she has

This meme helps nothing. It just confirms some people’s bias and pisses off everyone else.

Because they’re racist. Not all republicans are racist, but most of the ones in office currently are, indeed racist.

Maybe because one of them has no grasp of politics or even history and the other said 9/11 was done by “some people”( I would vote for a gay I would vote for Muslim but I won’t vote for stupidity and ignorance) we should vote for the most qualified person not because they are a minority

There is actually no point in responding here with a viewpoint other than raining praise on the two people further dividing Democrats.

Honestly, it’s sad that saying something that differs in any way is viewed as you not being progressive enough or Republican. Democrats have lost their damn minds and I am a registered Democrat. They tackle so many divise issues that they will never get a big enough following. In other words… You have teams in the Democratic party that align with what you think. I was for Bernie and couldn’t stand Hillary. Now Bernie has become nothing short of a disappointment. That he refuses to acknowledge that Omar is antisemitic is disappointing. That he thinks nothing about the vitriol hatred for Israel by Democrats is just as pathetic.

Whatever… Enjoy your echo chamber here. Also, AOC lacks even a basic understanding of economics.

This isnt about who they are, at least for me. It’s about what they say and what they do.

It’s because the only thing that gets republicans to the polls is racism. A republican will vote for criminals to run the worst shitholes (Confederate South) in the US as long as those criminals promote racism.

It is another way to keep us all from having serious talks about policy. Since serious talks about policy make our corporate masters look bad, there is bipartisan support for focusing on personality clashes and fighting over superficial news cycle victories. It is the stuff that takes up the space where civic culture could otherwise happen.

I read that Fox News has mentioned AOC over 3100 times on broadcast shows since she took office in January. That is brainwash by repetition.

The politicians don’t respond because they are women or their religion. They attack them because their message is different and because it resonates with people. They did it to Bernie too; he was crazy, he was a socialist, there was comparisons with fascism and communism, two very bad words in America. Its people that fight the status-quo, they just pick on the thing the scares people the most and is easiest to divide people on. It is building into stereotypes but not because of them. Don’t think it makes it any better or worse though

They don’t have the attention span to focus on many more targets at a time. So it’s convenient to have just a couple of people to focus on. AOC and Omar just give them the most bang for their buck.
