To quote Alan Moore: “None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with YOU. You're locked up in here with ME.” 🤣

The hand wringing in this article is indicative of the old white men that portray power and influence on TV but really cower in their boots at anything but the status quo. Make the world a better place AOC. And damn the listless pawns that allowed us to get here.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Funny what happens when you represent your constituents instead of your donors.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
This article is gossipy, ill-reported, and annoying.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
darn dems need to stop viewing her as a problem and start looking at her as a solution.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
I am sure you think you are right, but you haven't met my wife. You cannot rein in STRONG SMART WOMEN - period.
 
Yup. It’s fun watching them try though bc @AOC got the clap backs on lock
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Did you just speak to my husband? My ex-? My brothers? #verdad
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
is fire. She is burning bright and hot and she is setting the world ablaze. We need more like her representing us. Undaunted, smart people of conviction who aren't afraid to call out this crooked administration for what it is.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Good Lord, AOC has been in the House of Rep what, 1 week? Everyone chill. I'm a pretty moderate Democrat and I'm Latina. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is doing just fine. I'm not exasperated.

In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Rein her in???? Haha that's pretty rich...keep dreaming, guys.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
And yet the article says Rep. @NydiaVelazquez is trying to talk sense into @AOC to prevent her from primarying other Democrats Are you only Latina if you want to attack other Dems, or do Latinas who support the caucus still count? I guess not.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Our country is so overdue for this type of leadership. For the first time in 2 yrs I am finally excited about something government related!!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Keep up the fight @AOC . You are one of the few in Congress willing to fight for the working class!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
AOC brought out the youth vote with her progressive ideas and modern style. She does need a supportive mentor ( or more) to be sure she is successful. 2020 is just around the corner, and Ds need to maintain the interests of younger voters. She is the antiTrump!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Pobrecitos. They gotta find out somehow though.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The democratic caucus needs personality! Why would anyone think uniformity and consensus is representative? @HouseDemocrats and @SenateDems need to embrace @AOC’s constructive agitation; maybe even evolve as a result! Suppressing agitation is the failing play!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
House Democrats better understand that this is the level of fight we have been looking for in them. They need to get behind AOC.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
So true! Raised in a family with strong women who weren’t afraid to speak their mind and didn’t care what you thought of them for doing so!!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Ha! Gold nuggets of wisdom right there 😉💃🏻. Adelante @AOC !
 
Never our spirit. Never our song. Maybe for a season but NEVER for long..... 🙌🏽👏🏼💪🏽🔥
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The Democratic Socialists will do to the Democratic party what the Tea Party did to the Republican Party...divide the nation even more. I hope someone comes to the forefront to bring this country back to the center.
 
Liberals love to deploy racist stereotypes when it suits their needs...
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Maybe more people need to get on board with positive change and help her get her ideas done in a way that helps people. She got elected by promising to do good things, I'm not surprised she is starting off by working. We need more elected officials that have her drive.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
She's making news with her initiatives and making people think. What is wrong with that? Those criticizing her shld meet w/ her & collaborate. They are in the same party anyway. You're not cut fr the same cloth. Variety is good for democracy.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The strange thing is that she wants what we all want... For our politicians to be accountable. I don't see the problem. 🤷🏻‍♀️
 
 
Ahem ... the same could be said about Italian-American girls from the Bronx!
 
As the husband of a latina woman, I confirm the truth in this tweet.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
She is doing the right thing and I have her back 100%🇺🇸
 
.@AOC was elected to fight for district 14, not kowtow to stagnant DC politics. She’s doing just that while also being party’s most effective messenger— @NydiaVelazquez & her colleagues should be figuring out how to BUILD on the energy she inspires, not keep her quiet.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
They mean "bring her to heel," not "bring her into the fold."
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Democrats need to follow AOC. There, headline fixed.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Everybody needs to stop just chill @AOC has only been in Congress one week and already people are trying to shame her seriously she's an awesome congresswoman. people needs to stop and focus on things like this government shutdown.
 
One of the biggest reasons #AOCisforme
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
I don't think she was elected by her constituents to "play ball"
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The establishment's way doesn't seem to be working. How 'bout we let @AOC drive the bus for a bit and see where that takes us hmmmm?
 
 
It's so funny that the democratic leadership is planning to gang up on their own party member who is popular and has views most people agree with including lots of people who only go vote if they see the party as actually being left. "she is attacking us" no your attacking her.
 
 
Look...

I do think AOC could be an amazing uniter for the Democratic Party. And some of her Dem bashing is annoying.

Buuuuuut MAYBE establishment Dems should stop trying to rein her in and let her be AOC. It’s what got her here.

And it’s what we need more of in our leaders.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
She didn't come to play ball; she came to shake things up.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
"People are afraid of her" YES YES YES. The establishment status quo needs to be afraid of her. Its the only way they will bend, and if they dont bend then we break them by opposing them in primaries
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
I have not heard any Democrats trying to rein her in, it’s always the Republicans because they are Afraid of her.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Her brand is to be outspoken. Good for her. I don't know why they're even trying to rein her in. It's important to have diverse voices in Congress. Let her speak her mind.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
This is the problem with the Democratic party. It sees its purpose as maintaining its own power, when the purpose of any government is to govern, to tackle substantive issues facing the polity. As soon as you conceptualize politics as "team vs. team," everyone has already lost.
 
This pretty much captures my almost 43 years on this planet.

You will not win with this one, fellas. You will not.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Looks like they misspelled “terrified.”
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
You got that right and the same is true for many fierce women of our time!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." Kris Kristofferson was predicting AOC 50 years ago. She's not beholden to the party and the party's scared of that.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
the whole point is to drag the party where the people are, not drag the people to the #dnc. we're taking over the party, that's my goal anyway.
 
I feel like there was a real missed opportunity for a power pun here. You can’t rein us in. That’s why they call us reinas 👸🏻👸🏽👸🏾👸🏿#futureislatina #CantReinInAReina
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Are you implying Latinos are superior ? Sounds pretty racist.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Let @AOC run! Her energy is much needed in the political system today. She is exactly what we need right now.

In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Little history lesson; they tried to reign in @SenBernie during the 2016 election and look what happened. Let @AOC lead and just try and keep up this time.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
As the son of a Puerto Rican mother, I must add my voice here and say you're not wrong.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The sooner they learn this fact, the better!
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Democratic Lawmakers should embrace this woman. She is the embodiment of what I want in Congress. She was elected because of her ideals and stances, and she seems to resonate with a LOT of people.
 
 
 
In reply to @DNC
@DNC Don't try to rein in the future. Your past approaches failed. Democrats won the 2018 elections because of bold new faces like @AOC
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
I call BS. Dems cannot be “exasperated” at @AOC if they cowardly have refused to bring the heat to Trump, Ryan, McConnell, Fox News, Giuliani, Lindsey Graham and all those who still want to blame Obama and Clinton for everything!
 
wow this makes me want to tear a wall down with my bare hands
 
In reply to @AOC
@AOC comes from families and and heritage of some of the most resilient people: Puerto Ricans/Latinas, Natives, and now we know Sephardic Jews and Marranos - a group that kept it's identity in tact under threat of being burned at the stake.

Good luck trying to "rein her in" 🤔
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
We need her energy, her voice, her ideas, etc. I'm exasperated she didn't give the rebuttal on Tuesday. What better way to the DNC to say, "We believe in diversity and the next generation." Misstep on their part.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Establishment pols need to understand that the way things have usually worked aren't working for a lot of people. And sometimes they deserve to be called out even by their fellow Dems the same way they expect Republicans to call out Trump. Also, they don't own these seats.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The hell are they exasperated about she's what the party should be
 
Definitely starting a band called “Exasperated Democrats”
 
Have you ever mingled with us Italians?
 
truer words have never been spoken

#LatinasLead #PolíticaLatina
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Oh please. Let her say and do what many of us are already and only thinking.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Haha. I think it is the 'exasperated and very afraid Repubs' that begged Politico to write this article....
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
DNC needs to move away from their old ways. The old ways lost them the White house, the senate, the house and the Supreme court. The people given them another chance with the mid term election last year, now it's time to try something new, something more radical. Stand with @AOC
 
 
Wish my dad had a Twitter to confirm this 🤣
 
This is my perpetual mood ⬇️ #FutureIsLatina
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
This is just bullshit. GOP is just having fits over AOC’s new brand of unabashed, take-no-prisoners, answer-every-slur-with-a-true-rebuttal. It’s refreshing. Deal with it, GOP. She’s here to stay. #ThornInYourSide #TruthToPower
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
And this is what we WANT. I am saddened to belong to a party that cannot read the change, embrace the emerging leadership, and cannot understand or give space for the potential. I am hopeful that in 2020 we have 50 MORE like her.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
The DNC and Establishment Democrats still don’t understand you need someone like @AOC to combat Trump. Watch Warren get endorsed by HRC and the superdelegates - they think the same old tired centrist liberal politics are still relevant.. but they aren’t.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Poor centrists are upset because she isn't a baby Republican. There's a reason she's the most popular politician out there right now.
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
🤣🤣 @DNC don’t you people know YOU ARE the problem?? Get in line with the changes happening or what’s happening with the GOP will happen to you. Our society is evolving. & it’s long overdue. Grow the F up! #ChangeIsComing
 
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
What's this BULLSHIT about? Guess what? The politics of old white men is OVER! Both parties need to be challenged. The Dems need to grow a spine and stop acquiescing to the GOP's every whim and @AOC AOC is just the person to make that happen.
 
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Stereotypes are still stereotypes even if they’re positive
 
In reply to @CristobalJAlex
Neve let anyone “ rein “ you in. Follow your heart and continue to express your thoughts. The trouble with the mainstream in DC is that they have allowed their “ thoughts “ to be purchased. They will attack anyone that crosses their purchased ideologies.
 
It’s like the Democrats are afraid of charisma.

I hope @RepBarbaraLee recognizes the momentum @AOC has and encourages it to do great things.
 
El establishment demócrata sigue intentando por todos los medios hacer que AOC se acostumbre al "bussiness as usual" del partido, no sea que pierdan las jugosas donaciones corporativas.
 
Good to know black people arent in any future plans....
 
Latinas and black women have been organizers, defenders and fixers of the Democratic Party forever. You cannot rein us in. You wouldn’t be here without us.
 
 
As the proud husband of another brilliant and fearless latina, I wholeheartedly endorse this statement. @AOC is doing exactly what her constituents elected her to do. @dnc Step aside and let her do it, or better yet, help her.
