Skip to comments.Ocasio-Cortez: Pelosi Opposition Lacks ‘Diversity,’ ‘Vision’
Posted on 11/21/2018 3:47:28 AM PST by Libloather
While I was reading this letter that was kind of released today, my main concern was that there is no vision, there is no common value, there is no goal that is really articulated in this letter aside from we need to change, she said. I do think that we got sent to Congress [with] a mandate to change how government works, to change what government even looks like. But if we are not on the same page about changing the systems and the values and how were going to adapt as a party for the future, then what is the point of just changing our party leadership just for the sake of it?
Ocasio-Cortez a 29-year-old upstart progressive who spent her freshman orientation protesting with environmentalists outside Pelosis office also expressed concern that opposition to Pelosi could produce a more conservative Democratic leadership.
If anything, I think that what it does is that it creates a window where we could potentially get more conservative leadership, she said. And when you actually look at the signatories, it is not necessarily reflective of the diversity of the party. We have about 16 signatories, 14 of them are male. There are very few people of color in the caucus. Theres very few [sic] ideological diversity. Its not like there are progressives that are signing on. Its not like you have a broad-based coalition.

I think AOC had a meeting with some folks and was trained up on “who really runs the show”. How quickly her tone has changed in regards to crazy Nan.
We thought the Republican-led house was inert and useless. Dems are going to make the formerly Republican-led House look like a Mensa meeting.
And lack of Education of what this country is all about. Her constituents and the majority of the people her age don’t care about the rule of law which is really sad. As I always say look where the money comes from, George Soros.
Diversity? What these bone heads want is foreign control of our government to turn it into another shit-hole.
Democrats are handing them the power to do it in the name of diversity.
They should be careful what they wish for.
Seems she plans on taking the leadership role to advance fundamental change.
This "Bimbo Caliente" is more dangerous to men than your ex-wife.
Like, you know, was it or was it not released today?
... Dems are going to make the formerly Republican-led House look like a Mensa meeting...
“What we really need is that should we, and if we work our butts off, to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress, uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House in 2020 ”
“I do think that we got sent to Congress [with] a mandate to change how government works, to change what government even looks like.”
I find that statement bothersome. Who or what “we” are going to mandate to Congress how the government works?
Someone correct me if I am wrong. But the people deliver mandates to the congress critters via voting and how government works is governed by the Constitution. What this airhead is talking about is a dictatorship where Congress is but a rubber stamp.
I think Rush said the other day that it’s possible for someone to get elected prez and just throw out the Constitution. I think this is what this little sweetie is getting at. The Bill of Rights will then be null and void.

Pelosi and O-C signal that the Dems will become even more of an anti white, SJW party pushing a communist agenda. Hopefully this will cause a backlash in 2020. O-C’s green new deal plan is a blue print for a communist takeover. Hope 2020 voters decide better the Donald than Stalin. It’s going to be close.
You know, I have been angry with NY for sending this obviously unqualified, uneducated, doofus to Congress. But I will say this. At least she is going to have tremendous entertainment value for the next couple of years. She just keeps giving us gem after gem... SMH...
The way I see it is that she’s working very hard to make all the D’s in the House from all “diversities” hate her guts.
True. And, like, she hasn’t even been inaugurated yet.
The Declaration of Independence and Constitution were ever worse (at least according to Her Royal Stupidness).
Ocasio-Cortez could be great for the Republican Party. She will make a bunch of Democrat women see that they will ultimately be purged.
It’s like being kind of pregnant, you know?
Does the democrat party platform or its governing documents contain rules/policy requiring diversity across its leadership and committees? If so, Cortez is pointing out their hypocrisy, which is no surprise to any FReeper.
Pass the popcorn. It should be interesting to see how democrat senior leadership deals with the growing socialists, queers, Muslims, atheists, SJWs, racists and non-citizens in their party.
Diversity in the democrat party is king you know! - or is it queen?? - LOL !!!!
Not very bright, is she. The new kid on the block takes on Goliath. She must have a death wish.
