Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.

 

 Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans.

I guess she wants to be the left wing Trump. Can't stop saying stupid things, can't be kept in check, completely naive to how her position works. As if one demagogue wasn't bad enough.

Republicans are red, Democrats are blue

Neither one of them gives a f*ck about you

She took their rhetoric all the way to the House.  Now they have to live with her.

 

And no way does she write her own twitters.  She's a failed bartender.  We don't know who the 2.2 million really follow, but we know it ain't her.


It's been a bad year. My old favorite restaurant closed down, and my new favorite restaurant sucks.

It is entirely rational that the left would have an element that would rise up to counter Trump.   Trump himself is the pendulum swinging away from and increase in leftist popularity.

 

Hopefully the next swing does not result in something worse than Trump, as a response to this more extreme leftism.

Uggh.  At least with Trump, he is not extreme right.  She is socialist, so I see her as worse.   However, I don't think that she has the cache to be powerful enough to swing the Dems too far left.  Of course, I always underestimate the stupidity of the electorate.  :dunno:


Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

I kind of like how AOC says things that make Republican heads explode, then when they clutch their pearls and cry about it she doubles down and says it again. :lol:

Icon Status?

 

"Ocasio-Cortez’s willingness to take on her party establishment with unconventional guerrilla tactics is what got her here. It’s earned her icon status on the progressive left, it’s where the 29-year-old freshman derives her power — and, by every indication, it’s how she thinks she can pull the Democratic Party in her direction."

This is scary. On one side you have the globalist Democrats pushing towards a one world order.

The other side is pushing for a socialist revolution which leads to economy collapse and a dictatorship.

The Democrats are the biggest danger to our nation.

From what I have heard, she made it as a bartender the same way she has made as a politician.  Relying on certain attributes, which I certainly agree, are impressive.

She's barely 29 and already owns them, living rent free. They're obsessed, can't stop talking about her - they're worse than the Kardashian Instagram groupies.

She admonished Congress for taking paychecks during the shutdown. Then a bunch of lawmakers said, "we're not taking them," and of course she takes hers. Classic liberal though. Everyone else needs to sacrifice for them, and soon as it's their turn, there's some excuse.

Not surprised - you know all those rules about fairness and populist rhetoric the left wants you to abide by?  Yeah, that's for YOU to follow, not them.  That's the problem with lefties/socialists/marxists - the ruling class (in ALL socialist regimes) is exempt.

"truth" is currently only applicable to Trump, other politicians lies are no longer on the radar, nor are those of the media.
