AOC and Steve Scalise tweet over taxes, violent responses follow

Steve Scalise, House Republican Whip, reads Hot Air. At least that’s my takeaway from a Twitter skirmish he and freshman legislator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got into Saturday night. Scalise referenced a Hot Air piece from Saturday on Twitter as he took AOC to task. The subject was taxes and the responses from AOC’s supporters got ugly quickly. Referencing Ed’s piece about AOC’s idea that soaking the wealthy is a fine idea to fund her pet project, the Green New Deal, Scalise pushed back.

Liberal extremists threatening to shoot a congressman who was shot  by a liberal extremist only proves they are dangerous and should be declared a threat.

I read the tweets.  Sick, scary people.  Scalise did the right thing terminating the conversation and he did it a classy way.  Will the FBI investigate.

Looks like AOC's followers are violent. Hope the FBI does investigate.

Her goal is to 'eliminate carbon emissions'.

Does this dipstick realize that every living creature on the planet that uses oxygen emits carbon dioxide.

Nuke this dirtball to a cinder, and the surviving microbes will still 'emit carbon'.


"Duh!" seems pitifully inadequate in the face of such moonbattery.

@ConstitutionRose

No. Even if they are forced to pretend to investigate,they won't find anything.
