Roll Call / YouTube AOC grills Gilead CEO on high 1558038612.jpg...
Roll Call / YouTube

This is the very last thing we need. From The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of repeatedly singling out newly elected women of color in the House, saying that the veteran congresswoman’s criticism has become “outright disrespectful.”

I have tried to be calm about this, but you know, I’m getting sick and tired of seeing Pelosi get dumped on around here. I’m critical of her in some ways, too. But the implication that AOC is making is outrageous: the idea that Pelosi is using some sort of racial standard in judging her House members.

That’s absolute horse manure. We’re talking about the person that has this sterling record of  support for human rights of every kind. This is the woman who helped make healthcare reform possible. This is a woman who has been in Congress longer than AOC has been alive. And by God, whatever criticisms I have of her, she deserves MAJOR respect.

Now I’m going to say some things a lot of you won’t like. In my opinion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been taking up way too much oxygen since she got elected. She tends to crowd out a lot of people, whether by design or just because she attracts attention. She is a freshman. When I was new in my job, it was understood that I was to listen more than talk. AOC takes a lot of good positions, but sometimes she’s simply flat-out wrong, and she puts herself out in front of things constantly. I do not consider her the face of the Democratic Party, and I do not consider her the face of the Democratic House membership. Strong, savvy liberal Nancy Pelosi is our House leader.

And while I’m aggravating people, just let me add:

–Anyone who wants to revive busing as an issue is acting foolishly.

–Anyone who thinks Joe Biden, a man loved and revered by our beloved Barack Obama, is a racist, is nuts.

–Advocating the decriminalization of undocumented immigration is a huge losing position. We are fighting to save children locked up in horrifying conditions. That’s what our focus should be.

Let me say this again:

THE FUTURE SURVIVAL OF THE UNITED STATES IS ON THE LINE IN THE 2020 ELECTION. WE NEED UNITY, G-D DAMN IT, NOT THIS IDIOTIC INFIGHTING.

And it’s time for AOC to cool it with this “singling out women of color” nonsense. She needs to apologize, immediately.

OK?

AOC and her cohorts are exactly what we need. Obama was beloved, but he did not have the capacity to see that Rich white criminals should pay for their crimes. He looked forward, not backward. Well, that is part of the source of our current problems. We need people who have spines of steel and characters of gold. Projecting constant fear in how to deal with the Republicans is not the way Democrats will regain power. I supported Nancy Pelosi- but she has lost her nerve in the never impeach philosophy, and she has to go. The new women in… Read more »

Ive said this from the beginning… I Like AOC and she has a lot of potential. BUT, she also needs to sit back and LEARN. She’s young, and inexperienced. Her desire to be great and stand up for what’s right is admirable but she also has a LOT to learn.

This matter could be sorted out in private, not on the internet as it’s just giving the other side more ammunition to fire back at the Democrats.

It makes no sense to have a public fight as you end up “cutting off your nose to spite your face”

They dont see it as a public fight, this is a generation who has grown up entirely on electronics. Its the norm for them and will be destructive until the rest of us are gone who do not support everything in the electronic platform.

Hi DHG, I get what you are saying but someone needs to sit them down and explain the facts to them so if they have an issue they can go to the source and discuss it face to face like adults and not attack each other on social media for all the world to see.

Its pure arrogance to do it this way, they often talk about the greater good, maybe they should show some restraint and look at the harm they are doing by having a public spat.

It makes non-sense to do it this way
