AOC TV: Millennial Couple Plans To Launch The Wokest Netflix-Like Service In America

A Detroit couple that helped AOC win her Congressional seat plan to launch the wokest Netflix-like streaming service in America.

Means TV will be an internet-only streaming service that will offer subscribers access for $10 per month to “anti-capitalist” and “pro-worker” socialist programming including talk shows, comedy sketches, and on-the-ground reporting.

So basically, imagine if Bernie Sanders and AOC had a TV network. This is what it would look like.

I find it very capitalist of them to offer monthly subscriptions to their content in order to make a profit so they can stay in business.  Sounds like something Donald Trump would do.

The streaming service is the creation of Naomi Burton, 29, and Nick Hayes, 22, that produced a campaign video for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign.

Their goal is to attract millennials and Generation Z with their socialist message.

The couple credited Bernie Sanders campaign for President helping them to get woke.

Currently, the streaming service is seeking donations to help get the service started with a planned late 2019 launch.

With so many young Americans flirting with the ideas of socialism and with the couple having access to AOC’s millions of followers on Twitter, this video streaming service has a chance to attract an audience.

This potential new streaming service is a good example of a point I made earlier that the church and Christians need to produce video content if they want to reach young Americans with a positive message. Read that article here.

Dr. Whittle joined Melody Burns to discuss the 2020 presidential election and how the candidates will use social media like Twitter to reach the voters with their message.

Chad at 'The Stream': Which Democrat Will Win the Twitter Primary to Face the Tweeter-in-Chief in 2020?

The 2020 primary is underway on the Democrat side of the aisle with almost every Democrat in America planning or considering launching a bid for the nomination. It will be interesting to watch the cable networks try to fit all of the Democrats onto the same stage for a debate.

We live in a new era in presidential politics thanks to social media and partially to Donald Trump, who used Twitter and other social media to his advantage in 2016.

The traditional way of winning the White House is to knock on doors, kiss babies, and hold campaign rallies in swing states. While these activities are still helpful and necessary, there is another component that is just as important, if not more important in modern politics: winning the social media primary.

Future Political Power Belongs To Those That Tweet. Social Media is the Daisy Ad of 21st Century Politics

This may come as a surprise to many, but President Trump and Barack Obama have one thing in common when it comes to how they won the White House: Twitter. Unlike their competition, both men understood our modern culture and how important and influential social media is. This is something John McCain, Mitt Romney or Hillary Clinton never understood.

McCain, Romney, and Clinton all ran campaigns that would’ve had a better chance of success about 30 years ago. Each candidate never focused their main media efforts on social media. They instead went with a traditional campaign by hitting the campaign trail and talking with local residents, buying TV ad time, participating in debates and scheduling interviews on cable news shows. I’m not saying you shouldn’t still do those things for the 2020 election because each is still important to the success of your campaign. However, none of those efforts can drive the conversation about your campaign like social media can.

Looking at the ages of McCain, Romney, and Clinton compared to Obama you could simply say it’s just a generational thing that the younger Obama knew and understood more about social media’s power than his Baby Boomer opponents. However, 72-year-old Trump blows up that argument.

Like Obama, Trump’s team had a keen understanding on not just the power and influence of social media but how to use it to control the narrative and drive the national conversation. No one could ever be better at this than Trump. He is the Twitter master.

With one simple meme or Tweet, Trump during his campaign and now will receive countless hours of coverage on cable news shows and in newspapers across the country. Most days the traditional media no longer drives the daily political narrative, but instead it is merely reacting to what has occurred on social media.

According to Axios, newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now second to Trump on total Twitter interactions defined as retweets and likes. This is why you recognize her name. There are other first-term Senators, but how many of them can you name? Unlike her, they have not mastered or understand the power of social media.  

Future political power belongs to those that understand how to use social media effectively. Twitter is the Daisy or Willie Horton ad of 21st century politics.
