Too much hatred of other human beings. Too much judging of people by lumping them or their voices together according to their skin color or age or gender.

AOC’s questioning of Cohen was so refreshingly wonderful because it steered completely away from the standard preachy bullshit and grandstanding. If she could continue to do that in her overall presentation of herself and her politics she would be an irresistible force in American public life.

Someone should take this message from an old not-so-rich white dude to her. If she heeds it, she’d be smart in the America we all live in. If she doesn’t, then she isn’t quite as smart as one old white guy.

At this point, the self-identified Democratic Socialists like AOC and Sanders are not proposing socialist policies (even if they will be characterized as socialism by the status quo) as that would revolve around a change in the ownership of corporations. Free healthcare and free college are only one step up from Medicare/Medicaid and free K-12 and can be part of a capitalist system. We also have mandates in states about renewable energy targets and zero emission car goals. Universal Basic Income would be a more radical step up from unemployment/Social Security (and would run incongruent with our infinite immigration policy and strong support for illegal immigration), but still not a part of the definition of socialism. But, the Democratic Socialists of America does say on their website that, while they know it won't come right away, their goal is a dramatic change in the ownership of corporations. But if and when they try and institute that, then the voters can let them know whether or not they want it.

What I would like to see enter the public debate via these alleged extremist politicians is a massive shrinkage in the defense budget. I saw someone matter-of-factly say that we couldn't have free medical care like Europe because we spent so much on the military. But they weren't saying "and we need to reduce military spending for that reason", they were going along with a need for our "bigger than the next 7 nations combined" military spending. The Green Party had a 50% cut in the defense budget (which would still have us #1 in military spending) as part of their platform, but due to the two-party system wasn't able to make a case for it on the big stage.

I'm not seeing it. Got a link?

I noticed looking for it that she's finally scheduled for Seth Meyer on Friday.

No link, but CBS advertised it over the weekend, and then I checked my on-screen guide and it's there.

It was a pre-recorded comedy bit where she most likely went by a script. She wasn’t a live guest.

Yeah, they didn't say that. When they said that she was going to be on, I thought that it meant she was going to be sitting in the chair doing an interview type appearance. It was disappointing.
