    And just like that, boys and girls, not only does the mainstream media become your trusted friend, but money becomes the measure of trustworthiness.

    This would have almost been surprising if they had endorsed her in 2018, but they didn’t.


    This is almost as good as “State Republican Party fails to support nominating Democrat for Governor”

    Because it's better for the country when members of Congress are loyal to the US and not to Al Quaida.

    And what evidence do you have that a US Congressperson is a terrorist?

    I never said she was a terrorist. I said she was loyal to Al Quaeda. "Loyal" may be an overstatement. "Sympathetic" is certainly accurate.

    Perhaps then you'd care to correct the inaccuracies in your previous post?

    A major Newspaper in their district endorseS her DEMOCRATIC opponent, Because she doesn’t care about her district so it must be main stream media huh?

    The DEMOCRATIC candidate, not a politician, raises almost nine times the funds she did and its trust in money?

    interesting.

    So much for the “Democrats are radicals” narrative the president keeps trying to push.

    Anyone regardless of sex, age, race, creed, religious affiliations, color of eyes, length of ear lobes, number of teeth. Et all, who has sympathies towards a group that is directly responsible for the deaths of thousands of civilians and servicemen is better for us as a nation not in elected leadership.

    Has ZERO to do with race, sex, gender, religion.

    not all of them are. He never said all of them, just like he didn’t say all Mexicans were rapist when he addressing MS13.

    Pretty much every major (and most minor) newspaper out there publicly endorses people in an election year... this one matters because...?

    Well, the media said so, so it must be true... good for you; you believe what you're told.

    How exactly does someone running for political office not become a politician? :scratch:

    Well, what else is it? Money's your obsession here, not mine...

    Interesting indeed... now, since I don't live in her district (and I'll bet my blessings you don't, either), I don't care about Omar one way or the other, except insofar as her very existence seems to troll the right. One can only hope that should she lose, her replacement will prove equally entertaining.

    “Become a politician” key phrase.

    You become a politician by winning an office.
    The man is not a politician as of yet.

    So what? Omar wasn't a politician either until November of 2016... And while she'll obviously never be president, she's done well for herself and her constituency since then.

    The man (He has a name, btw: Antone Melton-Meaux) seems a pretty strong progressive himself, and I say may the better candidate win.

    First off, MS-13 is a Salvadoran prison gang. They aren’t Mexicans at all. I know it’s hard for some to think of Hispanics as being anything other than Mexicans but there’s an entire continent of Latin American countries out there, all of them quite different from each other.

    2. He was talking about the people “Mexico is sending us.”

    3. Trump hasn’t exactly been nuanced in any of his rhetoric so why would anyone believe there’s all this extra context he never even mentions?

    How about politicians directly responsible for the needless and preventable deaths of 160,000 Americans? Does that disqualify someone from holding public office?
