AOC Answered a Casting Call (UPDATED)

(UPDATE BELOW THE “FOLD”) Acting the part of a radical socialist:


Two things. The first is the press about the “SNAFU” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) made about FDR. RIGHT SCOOP notes about it:

  • SO yes she thinks the Congress changed the Constitution to prevent FDR from getting re-electedtwo years after he died.

Everyone focused on this aspect of it. However, if you watch it…

…what I took from it is that this Commie wants to be elected (or have some other tyrant commie elected) leader for life… like a Stalin, Mao, Castro, or Chavez. I don’t think it’s cute or funny.

The second thing I wish to note from this past weekend is the civil war in the Democrat Party. Here is a partial introduction via the WASHINGTON EXAMINER, and what the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is trying to do is stop a casting call socialist from getting elected:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., spoke out Saturday against a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee plan to help incumbents fight off challengers in the Democratic primary.

“The @DCCC’s new rule to blacklist+boycott anyone who does business w/ primary challengers is extremely divisive & harmful to the party,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. “My recommendation, if you’re a small-dollar donor: pause your donations to DCCC & give directly to swing candidates instead.” 

Ocasio-Cortez was elected last fall as part of a Democratic freshman class which included the most women ever in Congress and many progressive representatives. She defeated longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, who was chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, in their primary.

The new policy from the campaign arm for House Democrats targets primary challengers’ ability to raise funds and build up their campaign organization, saying specifically that their “core mission” is to protect incumbents. “[T]he DCCC will not conduct business with, nor recommend to any of its targeted campaigns, any consultant that works with an opponent of a sitting Member of the House Democratic Caucus,” the DCCC said in their statement on the policy.

A number of left-wing Democrats are dismayed by the policy, including Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., the vice chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who called it “totally tone-deaf to the grassroots activists across our nation.”

Rep. Ayanna Pressley D-Mass., who also ran as a progressive challenger against an establishment candidate, also spoke out against the DCCC’s new rule in a long Twitter thread….

TWITCHY says — “Ha! We hope the DNC enjoys the company of their party’s newest star.”
