You are reading page 11 of I'm a conservative, and i went to an alexandria ocasio-cortez rally. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

... If no link is provided, and another AN member asks you to source your claims, do it in a cooperative manner. It's totally inappropriate to become argumentative or insinuate incompetence or other negative characteristics of other AN members who ask people to back up their claims with proof (or at least the source) of their claims.

The tactic you describe is deliberate. It is used to escalate hostility and derail the thread. Top of the list in the troll playbook. Notice that we are no longer discussing either Ocasio-Cortez or democratic socialism. I gotta wonder why those topics are so threatening ...

Easy to find this out if you care to.

My troll-like statement when asked to provide a source. Obviously meant to get everyone fired up and off-topic.

Believe me, I want as much as possible of Oscasio to be out there. It can only help the conservative cause.

Then there's no need for you to continue to do the Russians' job for them, is there?

Back to the ignore list you go ...

It's kind of a pet peeve of mine that when I ask a question am told to "Google it "it's easy to find this out if you care to". What's wrong with providing information that you have when asked? I do find that troll like, but that's me.

That said, if something sounds outrageous like "Obama gave gave Iran 150 billion dollars" or "Obama let 10,000 muslim terrorists into New Orleans", you betcha I'm going to Google it. I often Google what people say here, outrageous and otherwise.

I would agree with this. People such as her do make conservatives dig their feet in. They get to spit out the word "socialist!" like a dirty word even though that doesn't describe her.

Like the President's unoriginal Tweet about Danny O'Conner in Ohio who isn't a Democratic Socialist at all but a moderate:"Danny O'Connor is a total puppet for Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters - Danny wants to raise your taxes, open your borders, and take away your 2nd Amendment. Vote for Troy on Tuesday!" playing on all fears. Spitting out "socialist" to the mix is a good one.

I would agree if it's something obscure or hard to find, or doesn't exist. That wasn't the case. When I made the statement (the one I was asked a source for), I didn't have a source in mind as I was speaking from my mind. I was then accused of making it up. Should someone make an effort themselves before accusing someone of lying? That's the troll-like behavior.

I eventually did provide a source. One I hadn't come across before that literally took me two seconds to find.

I don't know if she fits the definition of socialist or not, but she is a idiot.

Are these actual crimes, or fictional?

How very interesting!!!

The crimes discussed are actual crimes (Websleuths dot com). I will warn you, it can be addictive, and being such a vast web site, it can become a huge time suck. But I find it fascinating.

Compared to Trump she behaves and sounds like a rocket scientist. Idiocy clearly is not a disqualifier for millions of Republican voters.

Oh, dear God in heaven, this is so childish!

You know perfectly well that that whenever one of us speaks from our mind, unless it is labeled as such, as, "I was thinking..." It is expected we will be asked for a source.

Chare constantly asks for sources, and it is something I like about Chare.

Chare got into with me because even though I do source material, I am unable to post a link because I am using my phone, due to no Internet.

Good God, if we never had to source things, I would simply post: DJT is an idiotic, and guilty as sin, all day.

Your countless attempts to make yourself out to be some kind of victim, of I don't know what, just reinforces my dismal view of Trumpsters always having to whine about something.

Why not be an adult, and move on?

I understand it is shaping up to be another bad week in Trumplandia.

It is week two of Paul Manafort trial. The Times ad a piece over the weekend discussing how he was broke, and thought Trump campaign would be his ticket back to riches.

Wrong! Instead, he was caught in the Mueller rat trap.

And now Donnie the Clown is Tweeting differing accounts of what that meeting in Trump Tower was all about.

Great piece in the Washington Post on the topic.

NPR also covered the story this morning.

So, the week is just starting, and it looks like a doozy in Trumplandia..

That is hilarious, baloney, and so true.

The right wishes they had idiots like her.

Instead, their idiots consist of White Nationalist sympathisers, such as the guy running for Senate in VA.

Great piece on him, in the weekend NY Times.
