Shots Fired: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Takes Heat For Her Suggestion Nancy Pelosi Might Be A…
(Tea Party 247) – Democratic infighting is reaching a fever-pitch. Conservatives are enjoying the show while lifelong Democrats are growing weary of the party’s inability to behave like adults. Not only are their immature antics turning off voters but their inability to reign in the rogue, Marxist loving socialist Dems has become concerning to average American Democrats who are more concerned with jobs and the economy over the rights of illegal immigrants and special privileges for the LGBT mafia.
Shots are being exchanged between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat House member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
DC Clothesline reports:
Earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized she who feels she is beyond criticism — the self-anointed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — and her trio of Alt-Left Marxists, Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — after tiring of the freshmen ‘democratic socialists’ and their resistance to Democratic Party policy and legislative priorities.
In an interview, Pelosi told The New York Times that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
For that, AOC pulled the race card on Pelosi, claiming that the Speaker’s criticism wasn’t based on anything other than a disdain for ‘women of color’ who were elected in November. She told The Washington Post that the “persistent singling out” by the speaker was “outright disrespectful” and affected “newly-elected women of color.”
You read that right. AOC, in her infinite wisdom, called Nancy Pelosi a racist. This is what Democrat Americans are getting sick of. Dems have, for decades, thrown around the term “racist” where the see potential benefit and to disarm political opponents without actually having to intellectually engage in debate. This is new territory, though.
Typically Dems reserve the title of racist for those on the right and many in the party didn’t find AOC’s using the term on Pelosi to be helpful or appropriate. In actuality, many Dem lawmakers have had about enough of AOC and “the squad” causing waves and bucking against the status quo. They’re throwing their support behind Pelosi and you can bet AOC is feeling the heat.
Fox News reports:
House Democrats and their aides are quickly losing patience with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her office’s nonstop sparring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other long-serving members, suggesting the speaker’s dismissive comments toward her may represent the view of a growing section of the caucus.
“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday, succinctly summing up members’ frustration.
The last straw, for some, was the lawmaker’s claim that Pelosi was uniquely disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker, who is black, scorched Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.” Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges in questioning those comments.
“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the senior Democratic source said Friday, adding: “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”
Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable for Dems to unfairly label Republicans as racists without having any actual evidence of such a claim but heaven forbid a leftist use the term on a fellow leftist. The real issue here is the break from unity which is what will ultimately destroy the Democrats, which senior lawmakers recognize. They don’t actually care about throwing around the term “racist” as much as they care about being unified.
Nonetheless, Dems are letting AOC know she was out of line. Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, slammed AOC, calling her suggestion that Pelosi is a racist “inappropriate.”
“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he told Fox News. “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.
“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi,” he added.
Now if only the Dems would try for once to apply this same attitude towards calling Republicans racist maybe they could get busy engaging in healthy political discourse that would result in everyone in Congress working towards policies that are good for all Americans.
We can dream right? For now, we’ll gladly sit back and watch the Democratic party implode.
