Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s welcome in the Democratic House caucus is wearing thin as her fight with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi spills over into claims of racism by both her and her Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti. The Justice Democrats‘ dynamic duo are going hard after any Democrats they deem to be too moderate, which is pretty much anybody other than their “squad,” Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar.
The latest to call the radical progressives out for using the race card is Representative William Lacy Clay, the 62-year-old Democrat from St. Louis, Missouri.
“What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” Clay said. “I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares.”
In an interview with The Washington Post on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez accused Pelosi of singling out newly elected women of color.
Pelosi had previously been dismissive of the four freshman female lawmakers, saying that despite their large presence on social media, they only account for four votes in the Democratic caucus.
“It shows you how weak their argument is when they have to resort and direct racist accusations toward Speaker Pelosi … it’s very disappointing to me,” Clay said.
Clay is correct. The arguments being made by AOC and her Justice Democrats cronies are often quite unhinged. It doesn’t matter whether they’re talking about Republicans or moderate Democrats. It’s radical or bust for them.
But there’s a bigger threat than just juvenile passions or untenable ideologies. The Justice Democrats, who espouse a combination of socialism, communism, and Nazi-style fascism, are pushing for a complete deconstruction of American society through open borders and Modern Monetary Theory.
Moderate Democrats may be fueling their own political demise. As the radicals continue to take over the party and fuel the base, it’s possible those who cross the Justice Democrats will lose their jobs in 2020. Their party is lost.
