Now, Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is actively threatening her fellow Democrats. She lost it when more than a dozen moderate Democrats broke from their party’s progressive wing and sided with Republicans on a legislative amendment this last week. She reportedly sounded the alarm in a closed-door meeting Thursday and said those Democrats voting with Republicans were “putting themselves on a list.” How very fascist of her.
This is the same defection that infuriated Nancy Pelosi. It was a bill that would expand federal background checks for gun purchases. A key provision requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns saw 26 moderate Democrats side with Republicans. Perhaps there is some hope for the left after all.
Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), a co-chairman of the moderate Blue Dog Coalition, said, “It’s this class of members that got elected that are the reason we have the majority. Many of them come from these [moderate] districts, and their promise to their constituents was that they were going to put people over politics.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lambasted her wayward center-leaning colleagues, telling them: “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.” In other words, we are either all unconstitutional socialists or we aren’t… choose wisely. Implied threats abound these days in the Democrat Party.
Ocasio-Cortez went even further. After all, she is the true leader of the leftist Democrats these days and she just can’t put a sock in it. She said she would help progressive activists unseat those moderates in their districts in the 2020 elections. Her spokesman Corbin Trent said that she made the “list” comment during the meeting. And you better believe she meant it.
“She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” Trent said, referring to ICE. I am not surprised. Ocasio-Cortez has aggressively denounced ICE and called for the agency to be nixed repeatedly.
Those within the Democrat Party are very concerned that Ocasio-Cortez is forcing Democrats to choose her way or the highway and that she is causing infighting within their own party. “I’m sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there’s almost an outstanding rule: Don’t attack your own people,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) told Politico earlier this year. “We just don’t need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.” Too little and too late for that.
Ocasio-Cortez has bought her own press and thinks she is the big dog on campus now. Democrats are buying it too, getting in line for her loony Green New Deal and the price tag of $94 trillion it brings along with suicidal socialism on steroids. She’s not bright enough to know when she should back off. This is all or nothing for the freshman representative.
In response to criticism earlier this year from former Sen. Joe Lieberman, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a snarky: “New party, who dis?” She has absolutely no respect for anyone and is determined to bring a new socialist day to America… turning us into either Venezuela or Zimbabwe by printing money to cover her insane ideas. All the while stripping us of our constitutional rights and instilling a new Marxist Bill of Rights.
The gun bill on the floor earlier this week would expand the scope of background checks and require nearly all gun buyers to undergo one – including if they bought at a gun show, online or in a private transaction. It’s a gun registration bill plain and simple. A number of Democrats can’t swallow that unconstitutional move.
Ocasio-Cortez is making an enemies list and those Dems who vote with the Republicans will join them there. This is the same woman who infamously stated, “I’m the boss!” Pretty soon it will be time to rumble against the socialists and power-hungry Ocasio-Cortez. Sounds like a party to me.
