I believe AOC when she says she wants to label, track, and ban Conservatives and pro-Trumpers.
This is the kind of thing that Americans used to be against. The idea of political retribution. But this is 2020, and the hate for Donald Trump knows no end. So I believe Alexandria Ocassio Cortez when she says stuff like this.
Over the weekend, people started making lists.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked things off on Friday with a tweet that terrified Trumpworld.
“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” she wrote. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
A group calling itself the Trump Accountability Project sprung up to heed AOC’s call.
“Remember what they did,” the group’s sparse website declares. “We should not allow the following groups of people to profit from their experience: Those who elected him. Those who staffed his government. Those who funded him.”
An enemies list? Really? What’s next, an orange star? Probably
The piece goes on about top White House managers getting post-White House jobs. The story misses the point. This isn’t about cushy new jobs, it is about political bullying and eventually more.
