Most Americans know nothing about Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). It’s a sad reality those of us who are politically attuned often fail to realize. But don’t confuse lack of knowledge to mean a lack of an impression, at least on a subconscious level. Most Americans have at least a vague idea of who they are if they’re on social media or scanning through cable news channels at any given point. Both freshmen members of the House of Representatives have received an unprecedented amount of coverage across the entire media spectrum.
They, and to a lesser extent some of the other new faces in Washington DC, represent the machinations of the Justice Democrats who have put together a political gameplan unlike anything we’ve seen in the United States. If I were a hyper-leftist radical progressive, I would be so amazed at what they’re doing and how they’re doing it that I’d be begging to get on their team. It’s that brilliant. Thankfully, I’m a Christian conservative who believes in limited government and defense of freedoms, so what the Justice Democrats are doing is truly despicable to me. It’s also quite terrifying, but the silver lining to all of this is that they’re plan is one of both extremes. If they succeed, they’ll reform the Democratic Party in the image they want and could bring about a fundamental change in the very fabric of American politics. If they fail, they’ll tear the Democratic Party to shreds.
Either way, the Democratic Party of the Clintons and Obamas will no longer exist by the time the next elections roll around. Whether they’ll be stronger or weaker will depend on how conservatives handle the changes. In many ways, those changes are being driven behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. This is why we must understand how and why they’re getting so much attention. Only then can we prepare ourselves for what’s to come and thereby have an opportunity to avert disaster for our nation.
How: Being radical for the sake of attention
It as only been 100 days since the two Congresswomen were sworn into office. This may be hard to believe since they’ve taken turns garnering more headlines than Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, or any of the other powerful establishment Democrats.
How they’re doing it is actually not very different from how President Trump won the GOP nomination and general election. They’re doing and saying things that were once considered inappropriate for members of Congress, let alone freshman members new to the job.
They appear to be on a rotation when it comes to shocking the political world. If it seems too perfect to not be coordinated, that’s because it almost certainly is. They talk. The people in their offices talk. Most importantly, the Justice Democrats are talking to both of them.
When AOC said she was “the boss,” it was to grab headlines. When Omar said, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” it was to grab headlines. Anything you hear about them saying or doing is for the sake of you hearing about what they’re saying or doing on a constant basis. This is part of the overall plan of the Justice Democrats. They helped install both of these politicians into positions where they are essentially untouchable; no Republican could ever win in their districts and no Democrat would dare run against them at this point.
But it isn’t all about being radical. They have to be likable. When the dance video of AOC was released, it was intended to draw as much attention to her outside of politics as possible. It worked. Leftist media even manufactured fake rage from conservatives and AOC played properly along with the false narrative. As for Omar, whatever strings they pulled to get her into the Maroon 5 video, “Girls Like You,” it was totally worth it. The exposure of her dancing with Adam Levine was the best thing in musical politics since Bill Clinton played the saxophone.
The Justice Democrats have tried to elevate Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to the same level, but she simply isn’t as likable. Her sort of infamous line, “Because we’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach the mother****er,” didn’t have quite the same play as things their other operatives have done. They’re not giving up on her, but she’s a support mechanism now. A B-player. They’ll call on her to fill the gaps when the power hitters are in a slump or to relieve media fatigue.
Why: Conditioning conservatives, media, and Americans
This isn’t just a power play to keep them in office and raise their profile, though it’s effective at doing those things as well. This is all about changing the narratives in both Washington DC itself and across America. They want to condition Democrats in DC, Republicans in DC, mainstream media, and the general population.
If you’re wondering how they can do that or be so ambitious with a couple of freshmen Congresswomen, just stop and take a look around. They’re already doing it. They’ve begun a cycle quite similar to what Trump did during the campaign, but they’re doing it on a larger level. Trump would shock, then punch, then counterpunch. It was all centered around him. With AOC and Omar, they shock, then wait to get punched, then whip out the victim card. You’ll notice they refer to “brown women” as a group when referring to themselves and each other. It’s a cycle that has enthralled the media who is gleefully playing their role of reporting the shocking statements or actions within the context of how conservatives respond.
Meanwhile, Americans are being fed a constant flow of this cycle. We’re being conditioned.
Democrats in DC have no idea how to handle it all. In three months, these two have been able to effectively mold the collective Democratic narrative as we can see from the 2020 presidential candidates. They’ve gone out and said the Democratic base is more radical than ever, so if anyone wants to get the nomination they better get on board with Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, and every other socialist principle they’ve been able to mainstream in such a short period of time. And it’s working. The sad part is, it isn’t real. These candidates aren’t playing to what the Democratic voter base is today. They’re playing to what they believe they can mold the Democratic voter base into being. And that’s working, too.
The best thing they have going for them is a foil in President Trump. He has stirred up such negative sentiment from the left, even the moderate left, that if AOC or Omar say “socialism is beautiful” and President Trump predictably says, “socialism will never happen,” the Democratic base that hates him would rather agree with AOC/Omar than President Trump. In a way, they’re only possible because of President Trump.
Like I said earlier, if I didn’t fundamentally oppose what the Justice Democrats represent, I’d be impressed with how well their plan is working. As it is, I’m starting to feel the worry associated with Ephesians 6:12 when I see how well their plan is progressing.
All of this is designed to condition conservatives to focus on them, Democrats to bow to their policies, the media to defend them, and the people to listen to them.
If you’re not concerned yet, it’s time to open your eyes.
The only play for conservatives
As I’ve said in a near-gushing manner, the Justice Democrats are working with a brilliant plan. Thankfully, there’s recourse for conservatives to turn this all against them.
We know the media is on their side. That means we need to build a fact-based narrative around them. They want to play the victim card. We cannot give them any justification for doing so. We MUST focus our message on attacking their policies, actions, and words. They will do whatever they can to make it about them personally. It’s imperative that we not only focus solely the policies they promote, but also that we call them out for their instant attempts at being victims every time they’re criticized for their actions.
These two are very dangerous. They’re changing the Democratic Party. If we act properly, the changes they make will allow them to hasten the demise of the party. If we act poorly, they might actually get their way: a socialist America.
