Texas Democrat Trashes Ocasio-Cortez And Her Crew: They're Not Democrats…They’re Socialists
Townhall.com ^ | July 18, 2019 | Matt Vespa

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) assured CBS’ Gayle King that there was no fundamental fracture within the Democratic Party. Who is she kidding? Honestly, congresswoman, the bad news for you is that the entire country isn’t on drugs, so no one will believe such an absurd comment. You just accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of racism, of saddling you with so much work through your committees in order to keep you out of the spotlight. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) said at Netroots Nation over the weekend that any black, Hispanic, or LGBT lawmakers who side with Pelosi are pretty much race traitors, assuming the role of ‘Benedict Arnold’ to their communities. Yeah, first of all, that’s ridiculous. Second, not so sure it’s kosher for a straight woman to tell gay lawmakers and their supporters how they should feel or act. That’s very problematic. They even accused Democrats trying to work on a border package to alleviate the overcrowding at ICE detention facilities of being complicit in keeping kids in cages. They’re bomb throwers. And their agenda is not what the vast majority of Americans want. Sorry, the polling is quite clear: their agenda is total garbage. Yet, there are some Democrats who actually are calling this Leninist Girl Scout Troop what they are…socialists (via Fox News):

Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, responded to the threat of a primary from the four female progressive House members known as "the squad" on Tuesday and accused them of being socialists in disguise.

"I mean it's this group called the Justice Democrats. I think they're not Democrats quite honestly," he said on "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

"They're socialists and they want to impose their vision to Texas and we certainly know that in Texas our vision is very different from ... what I call these Justice Democrats, which are really socialists. They're not really Democrats."

[…]

Cuellar said he isn't the only Democrat to fall into the squad's crosshairs and claimed some members are being targeted for their support of Israel. He also predicted most Americans wouldn't side with the squad because their values don't line up with most Americans.

"I do know that they are going after different folks, for example, they're going after Juan Vargas... and the reason they're going after him is because he has a very strong pro-Israel voting record," he said.

"And that's just you know, just amazing that they're targeting him. They're going after Jim Costa also. They're going after Lacy Clay. They're going after other folks. But again, their vision is not the vision of most Americans."

The spat broke wide open when moderate House Democrats and Speaker Pelosi said they were going to take up the Senate’s border bill, which did not include any of the provisions that reined in federal law enforcement from enforcing immigration laws. The Senate bill was also bipartisan and the only package that Trump would sign. This infuriated the far left. Now, President Trump trashed this crew over the weekend, saying these women should go back to the countries from whence they came, fix them, and then come back. It wasn’t accurate as three of the four were born in the U.S. Yet, the allegations of racism were hurled…again. The liberal media had a meltdown…again. But this was a brilliant move. House Democrats speaking on condition of anonymity told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Trump forced the party to re-embrace this far-left slice. It risks defining the Democratic Party nationwide, jeopardize their House majority, and any remarks that are focused on these four and not health care or jobs is a win for the president. They admit Trump outflanked AOC and her crew. They worry how moderate Democrats can be re-elected if these four nationalize the races, which is underway. They are appalled by Trump’s tweets but feel conflicted to defend these women over their anti-Semitic antics and rolling out an absurd narrative that the ICE detention facilities are akin to Nazi concentration camps. Trump may have seen the dividends in Democratic infighting, but he wanted an even bigger return on investment. That’s defining the House Democrats before they even could prior to the 2020 races and it’s making AOC the face of liberal America. Nice work, Mr. President. 

And yeah, it’s nice that some Democrats see right through the circus these four are hosting. I think more Democratic blood sports are on the horizon.

Boy, there’s a smart one.

Still hasn’t dawned on him yet that these women are merely addressing where the party wants to go.

As far as the party is concerned, their only sin is revealing the truth of it ahead of schedule.

It’s a candy - and a mint!

So we’re supposed to believe that being a Democrat in2019 is somehow different from being a Socialist?

Is there any evidence to support that assertion? I sure haven’t seen it.

The human race is really good at “adapting”.

The housing collapse, as envisioned before it happened, was seen as a catastrophe. Yet, after the fact, even though suddenly “everybody” had a friend (or themself) walking away from a mortgage and in some cities house values dropped over 50%, yet when it happened life really didn’t change much. It was just the “new normal”. It was heralded by many as a “buying opportunity”.

And this rift within the democrats right now has always been viewed as “an unthinkcable catastrophe”. Yet here we are, and you certainly won’t see CNN talking about it that way. They’ll just take the “it’s a buying opportunity” tack.

Or, as a famous knight once said, “’Tis but a flesh wound.”

They also challenge the hierachy. It’s all well and good that they vote politically correct but don’t insult the donors and don’t criticize party leaders or their offices.

Thanks Kaslin. The Demagogic Party doesn't go after allegedly (whew) corrupt assholes like Eli Cummings and Al Green, and that jackass from Florida, I forget his name -- so why would it go after Tlaib (who ran illegally as she wasn't a resident) and Omar (criminal violation), or the governor and LG of Virginia?

They’re not socialists, they’re commies:

SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
The State forces you to give one to your neighbor, shoots the neighbor
and forces you to milk them both, giving all milk back to the state.
The State gives you a cup of sour milk.

LIBERALISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both cows, slaughters them for their own food,
and taxes you to death for worthless social programs, for having
the animals originally.

LEFTISM
You have 2 cows.
The State terrrorizes the animals until they can’t produce milk,
beats you and your wife to death, and puts your daughters & sons
into the Pedophile Nation, for the Epsteins, Weiners, Clintons etc.

PROGRESSIVISM
You have 2 cows.
Progs advocate for advancements in science, technology,
economic development and social organization, but they’re so full
of bullshit, nothing ever changes.
You still have 2 cows.

MARXISM
You have 2 cows.
The government takes both and tosses you into a hog pen, where you’re
devoured and never found.

COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you nothing.
They shoot your family and put you in a gulag.

DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, promises more free cows, lets you vote and gives you sour milk.

FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots your wife and kids.

ANARCHISM
You have 2 cows.
The State shoots the cows, you and your family.

CRONY CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
The State takes both, milks, slaughters them, and makes a tidy profit from the sale
of choice meat cuts and fresh milk.
You get some lousy hamburger and a jar of sour milk.

BUREAUCRATISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, hires a sub-contractor to milk the other, and then throws the milk away.

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.

CONTEMPORARY WALL STREETISM
You have two cows.
You sell one, bundle the other with a goat, a mule,
and two dry cows.
You pile into the derivatives market, buy a Gulfstream
and when it all comes down around your ears...
You go to the government for a bailout.

The sneaky socialists had a great run incrementally transforming our country. But now the open socialists are messing all that up, scaring the white woman.

Trump is bold and giving other the courage to speak out....hahahah...like me too right?. At some point if the Dem nominee isn’t going to be far leftist he’ll have to do something like this and then he’ll lose the far lefty support in the general because the criticism will be too harsh.
