What we’ve been seeing is that, apparently, a white person cannot be a “true” liberal, and that it’s okay for one liberal to drop the race card on another liberal…, if that other liberal happens to be white.
A couple of weeks ago we had Kamala Harris insinuating that Joe Biden had demonstrated racist behavior in the past…, and now we hear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accusing Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against and singling out some of the house representatives of color.
This is much better than watching “The Young and the Restless,” or “As the World Turns!”
Scott Jennings of USA Today says, “The Democratic Party is a mess.”
“If we learned anything lately it is that the Democratic Party is an absolute mess.
Fault lines are deeper than ever between the young socialists and the old establishment figures who run the place.”
Aka, “The Squad” and the “term limits poster child,” Nancy Pelosi.
Additionally, “At the first primary debate, Harris assailed Biden for opposing federally mandated busing, an extremely unpopular policy among people of all races and political parties. Debate viewers were left to believe that Harris — who emotionally attributed busing to her getting a quality education — supported the federal mandates.”
Harris also said on the debate stage that she, “would eliminate all private insurance,” and then the next day said she, “wouldn’t.”
“The prospect of nominating an old white male for president continues to deeply divide the Democratic Party, and the Woke Folk (at least the ones not supporting Bernie Sanders) are desperate for someone — anyone — to destroy America’s elderly political patriarchy. Policy, principle, and experience are irrelevant — race, gender or sexual orientation are the only credentials required to satisfy the angry [liberal democrat] mob.”
The House speaker recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which she cast aspersions on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young Democratic women of color who criticized her for giving in on the Senate border funding bill.
Though she didn’t mention them by name, Pelosi was referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, in addition to Ocasio-Cortez. Otherwise known as “The Squad,” or “AOC plus three.”
‘“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,’ Pelosi said. ‘But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.’”
“Insulting AOC’s ‘Twitter world’ is to the “Woke” Folk what a good ‘yo mama’ joke was to my friends on the school playground. Predictably, AOC punched right back at Pelosi, calling the speaker’s legislative moves ‘a huge mistake.’”
In case your wondering, “woke” is a trendy and relative new term used among our liberal friends which means, “having an awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice.” “Woke people are allowed to point fingers at all the rest of us “deplorables.”
According to Veronica Stracqualursi, Manu Raju and Sunlen Serfaty of CNN, “Ocasio-Cortez calls Pelosi’s ‘singling out’ of Democratic women of color ‘disrespectful’”
‘“It’s really just pointing out the pattern, right? We’re not talking about just progressives, it’s signaling out four individuals,’ Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Capitol Hill. ‘And knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration detention, I think it’s just worth asking why.’”
And no, we don’t know the amount of “death threats” you get, or from who.
And what does “concentration detention have to do with any of this?
And how do you “signal out” people?
I’m assuming she means “singling out” people.
BUT, when asked if she thinks Pelosi has racial animus or is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said unequivocally, “No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not.”
Well, then what were you exactly saying Alexandria?
I mean, we all have ears, we all understand English, and we all heard you basically call Speaker Pelosi a racist…, whether you want to come right out and it or not.
Then…, Democrat Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri accused Ocasio-Cortez of using “the race card” in her comments to the Post.
‘“What a weak argument,’ Clay said. ‘Because you can’t get your way, and because you are -, you’re getting pushback, you resort to use the race card? Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me.’”
OH – MY – GOD!!!
Wait…, let me read that again.
Are you kidding me?!!!
Democrats do this all day, every day, to conservatives…, but that’s okay?
But it’s “unbelievable” and “weak” when a democrat resorts to this when dealing with another democrat.
Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?!
Representative Clay then added, “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus. It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion,” according to Sam Dorman and Chad Pergram of Fox News.
Ooooh, “level of ignorance.” That’s a good one!
And again…, “It has no place in a civil discussion,” UNLESS they’re dealing with conservatives.
The far left wing of the democrat party has just adjusted their parameters. Democrat moderates to them are now on the same level that conservatives are to democrat moderates.
Ha! Isn’t it funny how that works now?
“The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.”
Oh, we can only hope Representative Lacy, we can only hope!
We’ll all tune in next week for the continuing saga of “The Young and the Restless” meets “All My Children!”
