.@AOC on IG live talking about the insurrection: “To run through the capitol and to not know if an officer is there to help you or harm you is quite traumatizing.”
“To my fellow members: If you so much as STUTTER to say the confederacy is a legion of white supremacy, turn in your pin and get OUT.”

@AOC is bringing the righteous fury that every elected official should have after the president tried to get them killed.
.@AOC on Republicans who encouraged insurrection: “This isn’t about the truth for them. This is about whether they want to be president in 2024. Let me give you a sneak peak: you will NEVER be president.”
“This is how democracy can burn. It is fragile. We must cherish it. And they didn’t. And they don’t. So they need to leave. Donald Trump needs to leave. Ted Cruz needs to leave. Josh Hawley needs to get out. They need to get. out.” - @AOC

The country is literally and figuratively on fire. It feels like there's nothing to hold onto.

That's why I want to talk about the importance of making a plan for the next ~8 weeks with Crush2020.org to create a sense of calm and purpose in our current reality.

After 2016, too many people had regrets: Why didn't I phone bank? Why didn't I knock doors? Why didn't I donate more?

And even many of those who did participate regretted not getting more people involved.

For the 2020 cycle, it's not too late to avoid that same regret.

Covid has made IRL volunteering hard, but it's 100% possible to make an enormous impact from the safety of your home.

Making phone calls, sending texts, writing postcards are some of the Covid-safe volunteer opportunities recommended in your Crush2020.org plan.

When Biden promised 4.5 months ago to pick a woman as his running mate, it felt like a consolation prize for people who'd hoped for a woman president.

But the process of making good on his promise has gone from exciting to insulting.

Per CNN this morning, 11 women are still formally being considered to be Biden's VP. 11!

The campaign originally promised a decision by tomorrow. An already absurdly long vetting process is now being further delayed. And the women can't say anything.

In these nearly 5 months, the women being considered as Biden's VP have had to compete in a sort of Miss Congeniality contest, doing fundraisers and proving they can be a "team player." For the women who originally ran for president, it's like their campaigns never ended.

men: this is the part where you LISTEN.
it’s cool that you’re “horrified” and “my god!” and “disgusted,” but let us take the lead here.
i don’t care about your take. i don’t care about your feelings on schneiderman’s statement. LISTEN to WOMEN. ignoring us for literally ever is what got countless serial abusers into office.
