Recent deletion[edit]

Is the section below that has just been deleted notable enough to be included under the "Mentions in media" section of the article? -Justiyaya (talk) 11:52, 29 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On January 19, 2019, American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Democrat from New York) tweeted "All your base (are) belong to us" in response to a poll by Hill–HarrisX that 45% of the polled Republicans approved of Ocasio-Cortez's suggested implementation of a 70% marginal tax rate for individuals making over $10 million per year.[1]

The deletion is reverted by another editor -Justiyaya (talk) 12:08, 29 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it's about as relevant as can be. It shows that the meme has escaped well beyond the traditional confines of video games and even made it into political discourse. It's cited in a reputable source by a celebrity politician. This isn't some backwoods obscure personal blog it was cited in. If this isn't noteworthy, I don't know what is.

I don't think it's relevant enough. A throwaway remark isn't a notable reference. Orpheus (talk) 17:25, 5 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I had similar questions when I came across the page. I wavered over deleting it, but decided that it was worth keeping as a notable use of the meme in a context that is possibly farther reaching than it has ever been used before. Basically I have much the same feelings that @JordiGH has. We have to be careful how we think about what's worth noting; the meme isn't worth mentioning on AOC's page, but it is worth mentioning on this one. — HTGS (talk) 22:03, 26 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see this conversation is old, but should any new readers come along, like me, who are just now seeing this, I would like to confirm my belief that the AOC content is very relevant and an excellent add. God bless and happy editing. MarydaleEd (talk) 01:46, 12 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
