Ocasio-Cortez prepares for war… on her own party

Jazz ShawPosted at 9:31 am on November 18, 2018

She hasn’t even drawn her first paycheck as a member of Congress yet and won’t be casting any votes for a couple of months, but the political media is already flitting around Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like moths surrounding a streetlight. And she’s responding to all the attention by setting a big agenda for herself. Rather than worrying about expanding the Democratic majority in the House two years from now or taking back the Senate, however, the newly elected socialist from New York has a different target in mind. She’s heading up a new coalition aimed at removing more Democrats in the next round of primaries and replacing them with more “diverse” candidates. You won’t need three guesses to figure out what that means.



This article from Politico provides one example of the victory parade they are setting up for Ocasio-Cortez in Washington and frames her expectations of attracting more candidates like herself into the fray. She wants the new broom to sweep away the establishment Democrats and build a burgeoning force of young socialists ready to remake America.

There is a commonality between people like her and certain people on the conservative side. They may disagree on a great many things, but they're both aware of an evil within our political system. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Ocasio may be starry eyed and ignorant about economics, but she's not a morally bankrupt sociopath like Hillary Clinton. Say what you want about people like Bernie and Ocasio, but they have good souls. People like Hillary and Debbie Wasserman Shultz have no soul at all.

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), implored more than 700 attendees of a Justice Democrats strategy call to run for office against incumbent Democrats as well as Republicans in their home districts.

During the video call with supporters Saturday evening, Ocasio-Cortez remarked that her own journey to the House began on the other end of a Justice Democrats strategy call while calling on supporters to mount similar bids in their own districts around the country.

I hope this horse faced jackass will enjoy her new office assignment in the mens room of the Capitol basement. The urinal cake smell is delightful in the summer.

The Dems are going to be very sorry they let people like her in their party.

I think this a perfect time to step aside and let the Dems fight each other.

People like her after years of indoctrination foisted on us by the likes of Pelosi Schumer and their ilk are who are gonna push the old bull Progressives out of office.

Dr. Frankenstein's Monster is going to kill them all.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Occasio and Sanders are died in the wool hard core Socialists.  There is nothing good in their souls.  There is nothing good about the opiate they push on the masses.

That kind of all or nothing polarized thinking is what's wrong with politics. Your opposition is not evil; they're not all completely devoid of goodness. They're just people that have vastly different opinions than you.

Ocasio and Bernie don't have "good souls". Wait a while, maybe a couple of months, until she learns the ropes and get a taste of power. She will be as bad or worse that Hillary or Debbie. If Ocasio and Bernie get a foothold this country is down the tubes. As foreign as it is to me to root for Pelosi that is what I am doing.  Talk about the lesser of two evils.

I don't make that kind of judgment about their individual souls. That's for God to deal with.
However, they stand for Marxism, which has nothing good about it.
The current culture deviated radically from previous human experience, ruthlessly reducing each woman and man to mere political units to be manipulated, balkanizing them into communities according to their likes and dislikes, so everything from cars to candy bars could be more effectively marketed, robbing them of their privacy, denying them both a real community of diverse views and the possibility of personal evolution by censoring the world they saw through the Internet to make it conform to the preferred beliefs of their self-appointed betters. - Dean Koontz

Actually they are the worst kind. They think they're cause is just and righteous, and their opposition evil. They are capable of anything.

Others do. But yes, ignorant ideology can lead to evil.

Those "vastly different opinions" will ruin this country if fully implemented.

You are extremely naive if you think otherwise.

That may be true, but that doesn't make people like Bernie evil. I think it's very important to make that distinction. Not doing so is dangerous.

Ignorant people can and often do have goodhearted intentions. Somebody does not have a bad heart and a bad soul just because in their ignorance they support bad ideas. To me that distinction is important.
