This embrace from conservative punditry is highly suspect, and probably the opposite of good faith.
The divide between progressive/DS and centrist/establishment Dems is vast and it makes sense for the GOP to further fray the tenuous ties that bind.
No more tweets from you @Ocasio2018. Leave that to someone experienced who believes in your platform. Do you really need validation from the likes of Glenn Beck? Is this just inexperience or a real political problem?
More evidence that if you don't challenge the missteps of iconic progressives you'll never get them to change. Credit to @freedomrideblog and @davidcnswanson and good for Ocasio listening and acting...

Thanks to @davidcnswanson and everyone who asked @Ocasio2018 about the disappearance of the Peace Economy platform from her website. It is back and I'm betting that it is because she was asked about it.
The take from some implying that questioning the removal was purist paranoia is a bad one. Antiwar has disappeared from Democratic Party rhetoric almost completely in recent years, when it should be a first principle of a real progressivism.
“The notion that someone will secretly plan to work for peace while going silent or pretending to favor war until they are elected has very few examples to support it and thousands going against it.”
If the UK had a free and independent media, then the British people would be willing the Syrian Army on in its current campaign to liberate south-west Syria from the yoke of Islamist barbarism. The British and Syrian peoples have a common foe: Islamism. #Daraa#Syria
NY Times reverting to the 19th century voice of ultra-imperialism explains the danger of the summit with Putin: "Trump has signaled his desire to withdraw American troops from Syria, a move that would leave the country more firmly in the hands of President Bashar al-Assad"
#Nebenzia: The #Russian Army’s International Mine Action center conducted four unique, large-scale and complex: two of them in the architectural and historical complex and the urban part of #Palmyra, as well as in #Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor.
Why do I love social media? Because I had never heard of @JenAshleyWright until about 15 minutes ago. Now I can laugh at her clueless white privilege. And I congratulate the person who sent the clap back of clap backs.
So now we see the latest move against the Green Party and our campaign. First loop us in as part of some grand Russia conspiracy and now suggest that it was our run that was responsible for Trump - a slick move by democrats. Reality is democrats & corporate media created Trump.
I will never apologize for giving the people a democrat choice outside of the two capitalist war parties. The problem with the U.S. is that it is not a democracy. The fight is for real democracy and people(s)-centered human rights. I am proud of role I played in 2016 election.
The "intelligence community" concluded no such thing. A few agents, hand selected by Clapper, wrote up suggestions but provided zero evidence.

Trump appears to accept Putin’s claim that Russia did not interfere in the election. The U.S. intelligence community has concluded it did — definitively, no question, no doubt. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1012295859072126977…
Saudi Arabia bombed a bus full of innocents fleeing the war-torn port of Hodeidah in Yemen, killing at least 9 civilians and wounding 11 more.
If this had been done by Assad or Putin, it’d be plastered across every single outlet of the mainstream media.
After a 82-24 vote at the #OPCW the people who certified Iraq's 'WMDs' will now be able to have their accusations over chemical weapons rubber stamped; just as the UK-US funded #WhiteHelmets plan another false flag CW event in #Syria.
Reality Winner bravely and ridiculously leaking nonsense non-evidence of nothing, and the reporter immediately accidentally blowing her cover is all exemplary of a stagger level of incompetence holding back actual resistance to fascism.
