@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico This article is gossipy, ill-reported, and annoying.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico @aoc 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico Keep up the fight @AOC . You are one of the few in Congress willing to fight for the working class!

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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!

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico House Democrats better understand that this is the level of fight we have been looking for in them. They need to get behind AOC.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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!

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

.@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.

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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico "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

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico "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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

Hey @georgepbush I’m sure you’ll be the first to call out this clear act of Latino supremacy and identity politics.

Or are you just gonna shit on white people for thinking of themselves as “white”?

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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!

@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" 🤔

@CristobalJAlex @TiffanyDCross @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico Establishment Democrats are every bit as harmful to our society as the Republicans. A true progressive agenda is needed to turn this country, this world, around. AOC understands this and so does the younger generations that will be cleaning and dealing with the mess left...

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

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @rolandsmartin @AOC @politico 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.

@CristobalJAlex @AOC @politico 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.
