There are Republican Jews. Democrat Jews. Ultra-Left Jews. Ultra-Right Jews. Rich Jews. And Poor Jews.

Plus, apparently, there are angry dybbuk Jews.

Dybbuk.(definition)

In Jewish mythology, a dybbuk (Yiddish: דיבוק‎, from the Hebrew verb דָּבַק dāḇaq meaning "adhere" or "cling") is a malicious possessing spirit believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person.

Globalism is just pro-immigrant. Jews get kicked out of everywhere they (or we, yes I am one of them) go, so we are always the immigrants - although we are more white than ever before now. People don't generally like interlopers, especially ones that use their brain to get ahead and not war.

Is bringing up Jews a way to shut down any talk about AOC?

We have some authoritarians here who put words in other people's mouth and then call them bigots, all to shut down ideas they don't personally like.  It's damn pathetic.

Thankfully, trying to do that will never work.

Because

1. The posters on this board are unwavering.

2. The beauty of democracy. He/she who was voted in. Can also be voted out.

Clinton is a perv.  His denial of ever traveling to Epstein Island sounds much the same as his denial of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. His name appears 26 times on the plane manifest.

FDR was further left than AOC. his "socialist agenda" was destined to destroy America, said the conservatives of the time.

Poll: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defining Democrats among crucial 2020 swing voters - Axios
23 hours ago


Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House's most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters.

Why it matters: These Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency. The poll is making the rounds of some of the most influential Democrats in America.

"If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk," said a top Democrat who is involved in 2020 congressional races. "She's getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races."
The poll — taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi's latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as "The Squad" — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

These are the "white, non-college voters" who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.
The group that took the poll shared the results with Axios on the condition that it not be named, because the group has to work with all parts of the party.
The findings:

Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.
Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
"Socialism is toxic to these voters," said the top Democrat.
Between the lines: Dems are performing better with these voters than in 2016 (although still not as well as in 2018). So party leaders will continue to try to define themselves around more mainstream members.

The other side: Three members of The Squad — Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — defended their approach while appearing in Philadelphia yesterday on a panel at the annual Netroots Nation conference, AP's Juana Summers reports:

"We never need to ask for permission or wait for an invitation to lead," Omar said, adding later that there's a "constant struggle oftentimes with people who have power about sharing that power."
