AOC is waging war on establishment Democrats.
And no, it’s not just a “war of words” and some backbiting. I mean, she’s literally seeking to destroy them and take over the party.
Many experts agree that had it not been for AOC, the self-proclaimed socialist, radical, and leader the #TheSquad, Nancy Pelosi would have never agreed to go down the disastrous “impeachment road.”
Word has it that Pelosi was backed into a corner by the scrappy commie and former bartender. She may not be the brightest political bulb but she has a lot of power and money in SuperPacs backing her up. According to D.C. scuttlebutt, AOC was threatening to “primary” establishment Dems up and down the ballot and replace them with her radical little “mini me’s.”
So, Pelosi – who was worried about her seat in progressive hellhole San Fransisco – caved and went through with the impeachment to quiet the impeachment-crazed radicals in her caucus.
However, the jokes on Pelosi, because AOC – who is emboldened with power from her close ties to Dem frontrunner Comrade Bernie – is still plotting to take down establishment Dems. She is now involved in a far-left progressive group called “Courage to Change” that is poised to take on several incumbent Dems in primaries.
The goal is to fill up the House with lots of little Squad members.
But Dems have a plan to take her down. It’s an ace in the hole, but the question is – will they play that card?
“Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats,” the editorial, published Sunday, stated. “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census do their best to eliminate her seat.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who has endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in his 2020 campaign bid for the White House, is targeting the Democratic establishment in national races by touting liberal activists using her influence, campaign funds and new Courage to Change PAC. The left-wing darling announced on Friday her endorsement of seven congressional candidates, all women, who will be vying for House and Senate seats with some challenging longtime Democratic incumbents.
But Democrats could get the final word and redraw her New York district after the 2020 election, possibly eliminating her House seat.
Here’s how it works…the 2020 Census will result in House seats being eliminated. And we know that New York state is projected to lose one seat.
For Ocasio-Cortez, a full Census count is more than a matter of making sure her district gets all the funds and services it’s due. In a sense, her own political fortunes could hang in the balance.
A review by THE CITY, building on data and analysis by The Texas Tribune, suggests Ocasio-Cortez’ district could be particularly vulnerable to undercount because a little over a quarter of those living there are non-citizens.

So, her seat was already being bandied about as the one to go “bye-bye” prior to her getting really, really bold and obnoxious.
Now that she’s looking unstoppable in terms of taking out more “moderate Dems” the establishment politicians are seeing this as a way to cut her power.
But will it cut her power?
Could a move like this actually make her more powerful and turn her into a “martyr” for the progressive communist cause? And if that was the outcome, she’d still have a major impact on races.
How will else will the establishment Dems stop AOC – especially if Bernie gets the nomination?
I don’t feel the least bit sorry for Dems. They let this communist genie out of the bottle now good luck trying to stuff it back in!
