It seems that Steve Scalise just couldn't manage to keep his thumbs from attacking AOC's tax plan on Twitter. His abusive, insensitive and ugly commentary earned him some well deserved comeuppance from AOC's brave supporters.

It really is a shame that Republicans force people to get a little edgy sometimes.

Ah Twitter drama.

The Zenith of our species technological accomplishments, the pinnacle of modern communication and political discourse.

If only the cavemen could see us now, oh how they would envy us.

Did ya ever think, that MAYBE, electing someone like Trump *might* just lower the bar across the board on political discourse? I know , I know, it's a stretch to think that just MAYBE he and his manner have "inspired" folks on both sides and all but, ya know?:roll:

Well, it's clear from all that just what we'll see if these two do continue their debate on the House floor...facts and reason from one of them...snark and hyperbole from the other.

I'm sure Nancy will love it.

Brilliant..... So (the left) disagree's with Steve Scalise who by the way was almost assassinated by a wacko Bern Sanders supporter, and now has been threaten multiple times on twitter.
I hope the authorities get involved and arrest them.

You're absolutely right. We all know that people are generally incapable of independent thought and independent consciousness of action. We are all merely puppets and politicians are the puppet masters!!

That's the part that gets to me. It isn't simple disagreement. It's PURE hatred.

I'd be interested to see if AOC responds to this and, if so, how she responds.

The far right loves to rip into Democratic women they perceive as a threat. They spent over two decades doing this to Clinton.

Old habits are hard to break even if their new target is really no threat to them nationally as Clinton may have been.

I didn't even imply that, but with the sucess of Trump doing it, everyone just letting this become "normal" well that can't have anything to do with it now huh, totally irrational?

You support a Troll as POTUS, you've no real right to complain about Trolls, being as you think it's fine. Dismissed for the usual steaming pile of blatently dishonest hypocrisy you're always posting.:roll:

And it's so dangerous. With the wacky new freshman congressmen/women elected this go around it's
going to get much worst.

Crazy babble about hating women...... Kinda like screaming racist when you can not win the argument. :spin:

No one buys this kind of crap anymore!!

What's brave about spouting off on twitter? And what's brave about making veiled threats? And please point to Scalise being abusive to AOC on Twitter, I don't follow him and I'm not going to scroll through thousands of tweets to find em, and since you made the claim that he was being abusive you get to back up that claim also.

Yeah I forgot who I was talkin' to with my last response, cuz if you were capable of "independent thought" it would preclude spporting a phony like Trump. Carry on with your spin and fearmongering rhetoric...

Well, when her retarded followers threaten to assassinate a congressman, it's going to catch someone's attention. Especially when the congressman they threatened to assassinate has already survived one assassination attempt by a Sanders retard.

I doubt she does.

Not one Leftist in this thread has condemned the threat. That says it all, IMO.

She won't call out her violent followers. She needs them. She craves their attention, even if it is destructive.
