AOC threatens to quit Congress because Dems aren’t progressive enough

On the heels of the Democrat party celebrating a huge presidential win over the weekend — at least by the mainstream media’s standards — there appears to be some level of turmoil within the party’s ultra-left ranks that could eventually result in bitter party infighting.

According to Business Insider, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made mention recently to The New York Times that she is considering quitting politics, blaming her moderate and centrist counterparts for scoffing at any of her progressive policy ideas. 

“I don’t even know if I want to be in politics,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Times. “You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year.”

The New York lawmaker was forced to defend the progressive wing of the Democrat party over the weekend as some of her colleagues seemed to lay blame on her and other progressive stalwarts in the House of Representatives for the veritable bloodbath House Democrats suffered in Tuesday’s election.

House Democrats and supporters were dead-set on embracing a “blue wave” of wins to strengthen their majority lead in the House, however, that wave quickly turned into a drainage ditch as they watched at least five Republicans flip blue seats to red seats, taking their majority lead down to the slimmest margins in 20 years.

According to additional reporting by Business Insider, the infighting escalated quickly as Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), a moderate Democrat, was heard in leaked audio from a conference call slamming the far left wing of the party for making her reelection efforts much more difficult than it should have been.

“We need to not ever use the word ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ ever again … We lost good members because of that,” Spanberger said, while doubling down and claiming that if it keeps up, House Democrats will get “torn apart” in the 2022 midterm elections.

Other moderate and Centrist Democrats agreed with Spanberger’s assessment that lawmakers like Ocasio-Cortez are making it extremely difficult to win over moderate suburban Democrat voters.

Ocasio-Cortez spent the weekend defending her position, claiming otherwise that “externally,” support for her progressive ideas was strong, blaming moderate party members for acting “hostile to anything that even smells progressive.”

Whether or not Ocasio-Cortez decides to throw in the towel is yet to be seen, but it’ll likely end up a decision based on whether or not President-elect Biden, should he formally win the White House, plays ball with the radical wing of the Democrat party or decides to appeal to a majority of his supporters and bring the party back toward the middle.

Actually what she is really saying is that they aren’t all as dedicated Marxists as she is. She wants to do a Russia special where she blacklists anyone who dared to express their Constitutional freedom of speech against her and all she stands for.

Like those Hollywood types who were going to leave…we’re still waiting.

I suppose she never did project “economically” how the Green New Deal would affect the American Society. I saw one estimate that 1.26 Million windmills could supply the electrical needs of the U.S.
I had some questions:
Who would manufacture windmills without “fossil fuels”?
How would electric power be generated when the wind does not blow?
How would northern states heat their homes during the winter without heating oil?
Does anyone know how electric car batteries are manufactured? Materials needed? Where expended / dead batteries go?
Would AOC as a member of Congress have to use wind, solar, renewable energy sources like the rest of U.S.?

I’ve researched a bit and as far as I can tell, nuclear power is the only answer (until better alternatives and technology emerg). Of course, the radical environmentalist like AOC hates nuclear more than oil.

Robert, that is just another one of her hairbrained ideas, BTW AMERICA IS NUMBER ONE IN OIL PRODUCTION FOR THE FIRST TIME you idiot AOC !! Doesn’t that idiot know what that means for the people in our country who work in the industry ANOTHER reason why TRUMP actually won Pennsylvania Im pretty sure those people don’t want their jobs to go away to china or anywhere else! she displays her ignorance every time she opens her mouth, which i try hard to avoid hearing thank goodness for the fast forward and mute on my tv control! I’d like to know what you are going to do with that electric car when the battery runs out!! what the heck does she think she is going to plug it in to? i got one for a loner while they fixed my car and i hated it! it doesn’t go that far on a charge, and i had a new one! and you can’t judge how far you can go due to the red lights, etc. and if your power is out and it doesn’t go to gas (which she wants to get rid of) you are screwed…… Like Trump said; if the wind’s not blowing, to our gorgeous smart first lady, we can’t watch tv love his comments!

The problem facing a Democrat controlled government is not a Pres. Biden, but rather a Pres. Harris. Just how long will the Democrat Party put up with a president with onset dementia before they use the 25th Amendment of something far worse?

Kathryn unfortunately she has been giving taxpayer money to her boyfriends business or what ever he does! she also owes taxes! as does the brother marrying Omar who hates AMERICA and shouldn’t even be here! also, i heard is giving money to her husband’s business from taxpayers money! Both of those b—-es have no business in America, let alone in congress. On TV the other day I
saw a man on hidden camera in his car with a guy (who was filming him) say he had 300 ballots in his car and the guy filming asked how he got paid for them and he said when he brings them to Omar’s campaign he signs them and gets paid! apparently a lot of that went on.. I think he said he did that in 2016 too….between that, the other kinds of fraud and the HAMMER which i just heard on Larry Elder tonight now i see what happened i think the HAMMER is the way the election was stolen! It changed votes from TRUMP to biden idiot! This may be the way it can be proved that the Liberals stole the election. The retired honored decorated military man said they did it in 2008, and 2012 and tried in 2016 and it failed that time. The Hammer is top secret, so some things he couldn’t say but i understood it is something they use to watch our enemies and it is a computer program, the best i understand. That is the closest thing to make sense that i have heard!

Much like all the hollywierdos didn’t leave when President Trump was elected. Joy Behar and company are still here!🤬🤬🤬🤬 running their mouths ! They all know which side their bread is buttered on, won’t give up all that money. Cortez is a loud mouth agitator, along with the rest of her so called “ squad” of anti American fools. As far as her “ list of Trump backers” that she wants to cancel out, don’t bet on it kiddo! You need to stfu and resign ASAP!

She won’t be leaving until after all the Covid 19 restrictions are lifted, because she would have to do things different at the local bar she decides to back to. Lord knows she would not be able to handle the restrictions or the hours either and the pay….hahaha…..no more Gucci for her. What a miserable lady, maybe she will talk her squad into joining her at a new bar……she has stolen enough of the publics monies to open a posh little joint and the girls could all fight over how to truly run a business, cuz they can’t run a government.

Tony speaking of which what happened in NY? all of a SUDDEN it was perfectly fine for all the idiots to go party in the streets, no masks, no social distancing, no restrictions to numbers of people allowed to gather, just like it was ok to riot, burn and loot in the democratic run areas of the country! if you recall, but not ok to see family and friends or go to work or church!) (That was a convenient excuse for their pathetic candidate not to have another debate, not to meet with news medias, not to rally, because he couldn’t gather a crowd if he was throwing money at them! guess the Wuhan virus didn’t fit into their party plans, though they criticized our great PRESIDENT for holding rally’s outside that drew hundreds of thousands of people across the country. I live in Fl and the boat parades were awesome! We all know biden DID NOT WIN. and i pray all the fraud evidence especially the HAMMER comes out and proves it ASAP! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS TRUMP!
