Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already threatening other less-socialist Democrats with primaries. PJ Media reports:
There were three progressives whom the media disproportionately fawned over in the recent midterms: Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Gillum, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Of those three, only Ocasio-Cortez was elected. Then again, her big victory was in the primary. She ran in a district that was almost virtually guaranteed to elect a Democrat.
When she isn’t busy saying incredibly stupid things (which keeps her quite busy), she apparently spends her time buying into the media hype about her.
A favorite media catchphrase about Ocasio-Cortez is that she is the “future” of the Democratic Party. That, of course, is on the days when Beto isn’t. Apparently eager to show the party elders that the future is now, Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez (man, I hate hyphenated names when I’m writing about them) has reportedly picked out the first elected Democrat who she wants gone:
“Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is thinking of taking on Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) by recruiting a primary challenger to run against him in 2020, according to a new report from Politico.”
This could be a disaster for Democrats, focused on raising funds to defeat each other in primaries. If an insurgency from the base takes out more top-Democrasts, this could end up costing them the house in the next election.
The Democrats want to be a Socialist party. The turn to the left has become so complete, it’s never going to return to the once moderate party it was. There are no longer any shades of gray and co-existence with the Republican and Independent parties is off the table for forever. If any moderate Democrats who voted for moderate Democrats believe their choices will govern as moderate Democrats they are sadly mistaken. The far left will not allow it, the wayward moderate will be ostracized and drummed out of the party. the new Democratic Socialist party will be a party of Identity politics, political correctness, inter-sectionalism, managed news and propaganda. Antifa will keep everyone in check. Deep State will no longer be a shadow government. Citizens will toe the line and be forced to declare a loyalty they will never feel in their heart. That is how most socialist governments exist, institutional suppression.
Bring it on, Ocasio-Cortez, bring it on. You are the best Christmas gift the GOP could have.
