Michigan Trumpsters Chant "AOC Sucks" As Junior Condemns All Things Green Except Money For Trump Family

Part of the crowd at Thursday night’s Trump March 28, 2019 rally in Michigan started chanting "AOC sucks," referencing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), after Donald Trump Jr. criticized her ideas. After all, the president’s son is such an authority on American politics, and his father loves women targets, in particular.

“Think about the fact that every mainstream, leading Democratic contender is taking the advice of a freshman congresswoman who three weeks ago didn’t know the three branches of government,” the president's son told the crowd ahead of his dad’s speech. “I don’t know about you guys, but that’s pretty scary.”

After Junior’s remark — AOC calls him ‘Junior’ — the crowd broke into the "AOC sucks" chant. Read Charlotte Alter’s cover story 'Change Is Closer Than We Think.' Inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Unlikely Rise’. We hope that AOC will just ignore the chants, because they may be with her all the way to 2020.

The Trump crowd loves to denigrate smart women because females with brains that function on overdrive have a very small place in their universe. Daddy’s girl Ivanka Trump, Trumpsters embrace. Do you see a pattern here? I’m sure that Trump had a proverbial heart attack when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — hardly a member of the Trump family inner sanctum — showed up on the cover of last week’s TIME magazine.

“You guys, you’re not very nice,” Trump Jr. responded to the crowd shouting “AOC sucks”. “And neither is what that policy would do to this country.”

Junior is speaking about the Green New Deal.

The Senate on Tuesday blocked legislation to advance the Green New Deal resolution to the floor on a procedural vote, with most Democrats voting present. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) set up the vote to test Democratic Party’s unity over climate change.

It’s true that many Senate Democrats didn’t want to publicly back the resolution’s ambitious goals. Now, various supporters of the climate change measure, including Ocasio-Cortez herself, are focusing on new, smaller bills in an effort to get back on the offensive on climate change heading into 2020.

AOC is a quick study, in our opinion. The more that she’s made into the devil incarnate by Republicans, the more committed this AOC is to stand behind her. Now only do we share an acronym, but we share common values. Being older — if not wiser — we are more circumspect that the Bronx-Queens Congresswoman about creating change. But we need AOC’s passion, intellect and her voice. The Republicans can try to discredit the young Congresswoman, but we see major streaks of informed, truth-telling brilliance in her latest speech. Here’s a sample from the video below:

"When we talk about the concern for the environment as an elitist concern, one year ago I was waitressing in a taco shop in downtown Manhattan. I just got health insurance for the first time a month ago. This is not an elitist issue. This is a quality of life issue. You want to tell people that their concern and their desire for clean air and clean water is elitist? Tell that to the kids in the South Bronx which are suffering from the highest rates of childhood asthma in the country. Tell that to the families in Flint whose kids, their blood is ascending in lead levels, their brains are damaged for the rest of their lives. Call them elitist. You're telling them that those kids are trying to get on a plane to Davos? People are dying!"

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having her feet held to the fire in a way she probably never anticipated. Unlike ‘Junior’ the young woman has a dedicated relationship with her constituents, and that IS HER JOB! AOC has a voice, and she’s willing to use it. Note that her national poll numbers are under assault, which is why this political rising star needs some steadfast support from established voices that offer her some cover. Anne of Carversville is such an example of blocking and tackling for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

NRA Puts Nancy Pelosi + Gaby Giffords Out For Target Practice. Will Sandy Hook Ruling Dampen Their Machismo?

NRA targets Nancy Pelosi-Gabby-Giffords.png

The National Rifle Association left little to the imagination in their March 2019 issue of American Rifleman, citing Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and gun control advocate, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Gifford — herself an assault rifle victim — as in the line of fire and perhaps in need of a little target practice.

Roger Stone Instagram against Judge Jackson in crosshairs.png

On Feb. 18th, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson found herself in the crosshairs after rejecting Roger Stone’s effort to get his case reassigned to a new judge. A target symbol appeared next to Judge Jackson’s head.

Stone later shared a statement — which he reiterated when reached by BuzzFeed News — saying, "This was random photo taken from the internet .Any [sic] inference that this was meant to somehow threaten the Judge or disrespect court is categorically false."

There’s no doubt that these are macho men. The white nationalist assassin from Australia who Facebook livestreamed with his assault on two New Zealand mosques Friday is also a macho man. that currently leaves 50 dead and 50 hospitalized — many in critical condition.

On Thusday, March 14th, the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned a lower-court ruling, agreeng with Connecticut’s Sandy Hook families that the marketing employed by Remington Arms, a major manufacturer of deadly assault rifles and specifically the AF15, was so aggregious in appealing to men’s “killer instincts” that it transgressed against federal immunity laws that protect gun manufacturers from liability.

Connecticut law, the court wrote in the majority opinion, "does not permit advertisements that promote or encourage violent, criminal behavior." While federal law does offer protection for gun manufacturers, the majority wrote, "Congress did not intend to immunize firearms suppliers who engage in truly unethical and irresponsible marketing practices promoting criminal conduct, and given that statutes such as CUTPA are the only means available to address those types of wrongs, it falls to a jury to decide whether the promotional schemes alleged in the present case rise to the level of illegal trade practices and whether fault for the tragedy can be laid at their feet."

The NRA and Roger Stone will swear on a Bible that their words and pictures aren’t really meant to incite violence against Nancy Pelosi and Gaggy Giffords. We’re just clutching our pearls!! But if the US Supreme Court let’s the Connecticut Supreme Court decision stand, we might find fewer prominent women in the crosshairs of America’s macho men. Given Gabby Giffords permanent brain disability, and the mounting dead carcasses at the hands of testosterone-infused nationalists worldwide, we have every right to be concerned. One social conservative determined to kill me for supporting Planned Parenthood on TV is enough.

NIKE, Pls Help Us FREE 'Fearless Girl' From State Street Global Advisors. We NEED Her Now More Than Ever

Patriarchal, capitalist forces are clamping down on ‘Fearless Girl’, with her ‘owners’ State Street Global Advisors saying that Fearless cannot go worldwide, unless she flies the State Street banner. A New York federal judge issued a preliminary injunction this week, barring ‘Fearless Girl’s’ birth mother and creator, artist Kristen Visbal, from duplicating her likeness in any way.

The problem is that countries and their governments worldwide want their own ‘Fearless Girl’. She is a unifying, American vision, but her ‘owners’ State Street Global Advisors say “No Way. ‘Fearless Girl is our property.”

Simply stated, yet another female has become an unwilling advocate for big-money capitalism and the boys club. ‘Fearless Girl’s’ debut on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2017 inspired us beyond words. The small bronze goddess arrived in the dead of night, originally installed at Bowling Green in another legal battle with ‘Charging Bull’.

A Progressive, Pint-Size Heroine

.There’s no doubt that women, in particular, were looking for our own Joan of Arc to take on Trump. Suddenly, there she was — ‘Fearless Girl’ as our hope for restoring the real American dream — and she was facing down Charging Bull as the symbol of unfettered capitalism. Fearless Girl was supergirl, our heroine who would stop the entire Trump crowd and their thirsty desire to enrich the 1% with a trillion dollar tax cut that two years later delivered nothing except a huge increase in the US deficit.

While the Trump crowd licked their greedy chops at Mar-A-Lago, ‘Fearless Girl’ would fly atop the Statue of Liberty, climbing into her torch to send a thunderbolt of justice into Trump’s intentions of closing America’s borders to people of color from s##thole countries.

Fearless would add new and improved 21st century, eco-friendly light to her SOL’s torch, illuminating the hate and bigotry of white nationalism unleashed by Trump’s roaring, God-loving crowd screaming “Lock Her Up, Lock Her Up.” ‘Fearless Girl’ gave hope that every detail of Trump’s American nightmare didn’t have to play out before our tearful eyes. Somehow, this pint-sized, David against Goliath girl would bring Trump’s patriarchal posse to a halt.

OK, So She Was Shilling

‘Fearless Girl’ was shilling for State Street from day one, but women loved her anyway. There was no sign on her back, and we were still totally stirred up from the massive, worldwide Women’s Marches on January 21, 2017, the day after US President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

‘Fearless Girl’ was a great symbol of our resistance. Now two-years later, her owners State Street Global Advisors say that the artistic mind that envisoned her, and then created her Kristen Visbal is powerless. ‘Fearless Girl’ is a prisoner in the clutches of unfettered capitalism and Wall Street. Perhaps she should just be smashed to bits, to show young girls what happens to you in 21st century America, when you try to dream big for the little people.

In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s defeat and the ascendancy of Donald Trump, Fearless Girl inspired millions of people — and especially young girls worldwide — with a NIKE-esque ‘Just Do It’ attitude. Do we force her into a life of prostitution for the man? Is ‘Fearless Girl’ destined to be the ultimate symbol of patriarchal, capitalist power, built on the backs of females worldwide?

NIKE MUST FREE ‘FEARLESS GIRL’

There is only one brand that can solve this ‘Fearless Girl’ problem, taking her worldwide as a true symbol of progressive values. That is NIKE, led by Serena Williams, and this duo must launch a campaign to free ‘Fearless Girl’ from the clutches of Wall Street. This will be costly because State Street Global Advisors will say there is no price on ‘Fearless Girl’s’ back.

As the great Parkland activist Emma Gonzalez would say: ‘We call BS!’ In Wall Street, there is ALWAYS a price, and NIKE can pay it, while we little people expose State Street Global Advisors imprisonment of ‘Fearless Girl’ worldwide destiny. Let’s turn this cute girl’s story on its head. .

I don’t have all the details worked out in my mind, but NIKE must give Fearless more latitude. She should be part of a foundation or nonprofit. She can’t be a capitalist shill for State Street Global Advisors and then she becomes a shill for NIKE.

NIKE has the inner corporate fortitude to understand what I’m sayin’. Look at their backing of Colin Kaepernick. Help us NIKE. ~ Anne
