I am not taking sides and far be it for me to be an instigator, but the former bartender flat out accused Rep. Nancy Pelosi of being racist when AOC claimed the California congresswoman was singling out “women of color.” How much more of this insubordination will be permitted?
If Republicans wanted to create an operative to divide and damage the Democrat party, do you think they could do any better than AOC?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Friday denied playing the race card against Nancy Pelosi in the wake of her recent criticism of the House speaker.
“That’s stupidly untrue,” the freshman New York lawmaker told Fox News on Capitol Hill, after being asked about accusations that she did just that.
AOC’s denial came after Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., slammed her “inappropriate” suggestion that Pelosi is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshmen because of their race. [Fox News]
Seriously, if you are a family member, she needs some help. Everyone on the planet heard her play the race card. She is not able to handle the responsibility that comes with this kind of notoriety.
It’s not like Democrats do not play the race card as a default. You don’t like what someone says; you are a racist. A kid can’t get a college education; they are being held back by racism, etc. When will it ever become acknowledged that everyone can only get what they work for and not because they are of a different race?
Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators”.
“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members. They will have to learn to be effective legislators,” he said.
“It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that [trope] is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.” [Fox News]
The “race card” is the only card in the Democrat deck. They threw away all the other cards decades ago. Now they have to use it on each other because they know no other way to debate any issue. I saw this coming more than a decade ago. The Democrat Party is doomed. There is no one left in power that can think through an issue to see the consequences to their actions.
