clearly, heterosexual white men are the most oppressed members of our society. we need to protect them like we once did the bald eagle. they are in danger of disappearing.
Dssjh, please try to keep your racist man-hating out of these discussions.  I know it's difficult for you to do.  These types of outbursts are simply illustrating my point.

you sure are sensitive, person of indeterminate gender.

It’s not about whether someone is sensitive or not, it’s about you constantly spewing your hate.

@Moderator

I agree completely!! Your comment, however, begs the question as to why you have allowed dssjh's continual personal attacks and hate speech.  It's your forum so you can do what you want, however please be honest about what you are doing.  I.e., what is visible here is hate speech and personal attacks from a certain part of the sociopolitical spectrum seem to be ok.

Notes / reminders regarding forum rules are intended for ALL members who deviate from original thread topics. All other inquiries re moderator actions should be via personal message. Thank you. — Moderators

@ Moderator,

I share the views of a number of members who have spoken up in this thread.  It seems like personal attacks and hate speech is OK from certain members.  It is why a number of people I know don't post in JH Life or have left the site.  I think the moderators need to step up their game.

This should thrill the socialists in our midst.

It's not all *roses* commenting. Conservatives are deboosted to the bottom.

what's the issue?

congress is not in session, despite what several of the commenters say.

she's in her district, with her constituents.

what's the problem?

What? That she likes dumplings? Is a love for dumplings some kind of virtue signaling?

This was a Town Hall, tonight in Corona.

https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4820911/representative-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-town-hall-meeting-paul-eliason

I just heard the "eat the babies" clip. I haven't watched all the clips. It appears you have to pay to download the whole meeting.

Still don't know how one finds when/where these THs are going to happen.

Here's the "we gotta start eating babies" clip.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I was waiting for AOC to say " we don't need to eat babies" but, well, she didn't say that.  ;D
I actually think AOC handled the lady well, but I also think she bears a big responsibility in spreading this mass psychosis in the first place.

Sorry, I thought it was obvious, but eat-the-babies is on page 2 of the C-span coverage. You have to scroll right.

Thanks for posting the Twitter thread, Chingwa. There's so much online already. AOC is in damage control mode.

AOC is not responsible for causing mental illness.

I think AOC's response here was appropriate.
