Huh.  I figured her for a TF2 player - Demo main.

Republicans are absolutely sociopathic saboteurs trying to destroy the system and kill as many of us as possible.

From the headline: The Video Game AOC Keeps Streaming...

From the article: Among Us has become a favorite of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has now live-streamed herself playing the game twice.

I'm sure the rest of the article was good, though.

Mentat: I call it Sociopath Simulator


It works because the rounds are so short and imposters are randomized so you can't really get that mad about lying.

It isn't a friendship ruiner like, say, Diplomacy.

So she has streamed twice on her channel, but has joined other streamers multiple times.

One of my first rounds as imposter I convinced our friends to space my wife who was clearly a crewmate. That was a month ago and I haven't been served divorced papers (yet).

AOC Is young, she likes video games.  As long as she isn't playing all the time who cares?

AOC's current video game is a Metaphor for political environment?

No, this is:

It's worth noting, and conspicuously absent, that she did so to raise $200,000 in donations to charity, namely "local food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, & community support organizations".

UberDave: Huh.  I figured her for a TF2 player - Demo main.


She is apparently a League of Legends player, with a silver rank in comp play.

She apparently doesn't play much anymore due to the toxicity of the player base when they realize she's female

AOC streaming Among Us is a good metaphor for the age we live in vis a vis the constant gaslighting by Trump and the GOP?

OK. That is a legit take.

Now if only the rest of the Dems could develop some game theory on how to defeat the tactic.

AOC is relatable and comes off as sincere in a sea of Republicans telling lies and Dems trying to ignore the fact instead of incorporating it into their narrative.

GOP r sus AF, yo.

Diplomacy and Empires in Arms did cause a few ruffled feathers, but no broken friendships.

There was a table top RPG game that seems similar - Paranoia, which is actually how Trump's second term would have gone...

Generational leaps are usually hard to combat. She's closer to Pelosis grand daughters age than Pelosi.

But she was a bartender and danced in a cheesy video once, therefore global warming is fake and Social Security must be privatized.

Only when compared to the other morons in congress. She doesn't do well with people that can get her off-script.

She is the same as Candace Owens; a presentable cheerleader for her side but would be irrelevant if she were an ugly man.
