AOC Wants a List of Trump Supporters. What Will She Do with It?
Uh-Oh. AOC Wants a List of Trump Supporters
Last Friday, the 6th of November, AOC, the pro-socialist rep from New York, made a shocking announcement on Twitter. Her tweet said “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
Shortly afterward, a few of her democratic socialist supporters banded together to create the “Trump Accountability Project,” which will somehow hold people responsible for supporting Trump. What that means, exactly, is not yet known. But what we do know is that AOC wants a list of Trump supporters and is going to use it.

And, back in the day, you would have been right. Had Mondale wanted a list of Reagan supporters, that would have seemed weird, but not all that threatening. Even in 2000, if Al Gore had called on his supporters to document who supported George W. Bush, that would have been weird, but also not particularly threatening.
