Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to make enemies within her own party. After half a year of doing nothing, she attacked the Speaker of the House over the border funding bill. When Pelosi pushed back, AOC tried to use the race card on her. That has sparked a larger battle among House Democrats, as more liberals turn on the once beloved “Democratic Socialist.”
AOC probably thought she could get away with anything. As an immature, entitled, and ignorant Millennial, she most likely thought the media and Democratic party would let her say or do anything.
After all, they’ve been letting her do anything for over a year now.
AOC won her seat by making wild and ridiculous promises. Remember, she stole the nomination from a 10-term liberal by promising to abolish ICE. Totally impossible for a newbie congresswoman to do, but it got her tons of left-wing media attention.
Once she entered Congress, though, it’s been a downhill plunge. Nothing she’s done in the last seven months shows she has any intelligence, leadership ability, or talent. Whenever she makes a blunder, she blames someone else. AOC refuses to acknowledge her mistakes (remember when she called our detention centers “concentration camps”?). She is even quick to attack her own party.
It’s clear this do-nothing is in big trouble. For a while, she could count on the liberal media and her own party to back her up. Now, that’s not happening. After getting into a public feud with Nancy Pelosi, AOC tried to accuse the Speaker of racism for not listening to her.
That must have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Because now, many Democrats are piling on the newbie. And the media is nowhere to be found to protect her.
Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race…
“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 said…
Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators”…

Ouch! Things aren’t looking too good for AOC. It was pretty ridiculous that anyone would have taken this junior, untested, unskilled politician seriously from the get go. She is a small fish in a big, toxic pond. She has no clout with other Democrats or most Americans. Yet the media pretended like she was the future of the party—because of her love of socialism.
Now, top Democrats are coming down hard on her and her buddies. Omar, Tlaib, and the rest are all freshman congresswomen who have relied on their race to get them attention and respect. But over the course of this year, they have created a deep divide between themselves and the rest of the party. Not to mention, Americans.
Omar and Tlaib have been outed as anti-Semites. Omar insulted the victims of 9/11. And AOC has made one horrendous decision after another.
But even as their popularity is fading, they have revealed the massive holes in the Democratic Party. House Democrats riot over basic legislation. Nancy Pelosi has been exposed for her inability to lead the party. The infighting only continues, showing the country Democrats are petty, childish, and incapable of uniting.
Clay is 100% correct it will hurt them in upcoming elections. Why should Americans support a party that can’t even get its own people to work together?
Add to that the fact that the Democrat-controlled House has done nothing since 2018, things are looking pretty bad for them in 2020.
Not that I’m sad in the slightest. It’s time Americans see the Democrats for what they are. A group of corrupt, dishonest crooks. Men and women who do not care about the well-being of Americans, just themselves.
So, thanks AOC, for doing what conservative journalists have been trying to do for years.
