You have to get the feeling that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is finally nearing the end of her rope. Ever since the media decided to spotlight her as the “future” of the Democrat Party, Ocasio-Cortez has managed to infuriate just about every normal American with a television or internet access. She’s the perfect caricature of the college SJWs we keep hearing about: Sanctimonious, self-righteous, never wrong on any issue… and dumber than any tool you have hanging in your garage right now.
When historians make films about the disintegration and fall of America a few centuries from now, they’ll almost certainly have to include footage of Ocasio-Cortez’s first (and perhaps only) term in Congress. Who could forget the newly elected congresswoman’s assertion that she is “the boss” of Congress, and that she would “write bills on Monday, sign bills on Tuesday,” demonstrating her total ignorance of the job she was just elected to? Or the time when she professed total bewilderment over the garbage disposal in her new apartment. (The kitchen was the domain of servants where she grew up, and they always dealt with cleaning up after supper.)
Or the time when she posted a video about how community gardens are such a wonderful thing, so long as they don’t include vegetables of “colonialism,” like cauliflower?
But the thing that Ocasio-Cortez is best known for, besides her ignorance, is her default response to anyone who disagrees with her: You’re a racist. In her mind, Ocasio-Cortez is correct on every issue. All right-thinking people agree with her opinions and positions. The only possible reason why anyone would disagree with her is because that person is a racist. It’s her default position any time Ocasio-Cortez encounters a person with a different opinion.
So, it was only a matter of time when the dimwitted freshman congresswoman would start sinking her fangs into her fellow Democrats. The Democrat Party may march in lockstep when they’re out in public, but there are still varying shades of Marxism in the party behind the scenes. And now that Ocasio-Cortez is actually endangering her party’s chances in the 2020 election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is starting to swat her down.
Every time Pelosi is interviewed by a fawning Democrat Party operative with a byline in the media, they ask her about the upstart Ocasio-Cortez who has been stealing Pelosi’s thunder. When one interviewer asked about the upstart “progressive caucus” formed by Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi quickly dismissed them: “That’s like five people.” In other words, Ocasio-Cortez and her little gaggle of racist, Marxist freshman friends don’t matter. Pelosi is the leader of the party and has the numbers to prove it.
But after so many instances of Pelosi politicking and shooting down “AOC’s” ideas, AOC has had enough. She finally exploded last week with accusations that Pelosi is “singling out women of color.” You wouldn’t know it from looking at Nancy Pelosi’s entire career, but that woman is a racist according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
And not the good kind of racist like Democrats. No, Pelosi is the bad kind of racist who hates “women of color.” The type that might vote for Donald Trump or lurk in a dark alley wearing a MAGA and waiting for Jussie Smollett to walk by in polar vortex so she can dump bleach on him.
Ocasio-Cortez even says she’s been getting death threats “every single day” because of the way Nancy Pelosi is targeting her. Those death threats against AOC are every bit as real as the attempted lynching of Jussie Smollett, of course.
The Democrat Party and many elected Representatives are furious with Ocasio-Cortez for her self-righteous insistence on attack Pelosi right before a big election year. But AOC is too dumb to see the writing on the wall.
The most hilarious aspect of this absurd catfight is that President Donald Trump instinctively knows exactly how to insert himself in the middle of it for political advantage. Pelosi was ultimately going to win her fight with Ocasio-Cortez. She holds all the power and influence over her party, and AOC is a powerless upstart. Pelosi hasn’t even begun to make AOC’s life as miserable as she can.
Which is why Trump suddenly declared last week that he’s on Pelosi’s side – Pelosi is not a racist, he insisted, and Ocasio-Cortez is being “very disrespectful.” That was brilliant on Trump’s part. The Democrats reflexively oppose anything Trump supports – and now he’s voiced support for the leader of the Democrat Party.
Pause and have a good chuckle over that one. Democrats now have to decide whether they want to line up and commit political suicide by siding with AOC… or agreeing with Donald Trump.
