• Democratic Victory? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Slams Dems, Considers Leaving Politics

    One of the week’s most popular:

    Surge Summary: Some things turned out so badly for Democrats on November 3rd that radical Leftist Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is admitting she’s not sure she wants to be in politics any longer. And she is trashing her party for what she sees is it’s insufficient wokeness.

    As has been noted in a few places, Election 2020 was a fizzle for Democrats in a startling number of races. The mood in Pelosi-world is not all happy-clappy, even in the face of what they perceive as a Biden victory.

    Further to that, writer Peter Heck informs us:

    After winning her own reelection bid handily but seeing her Democratic Party fall far short of expectations, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed great frustration with her own party for their apparent unwillingness to embrace a leftwing agenda, and said “I genuinely don’t know” when asked if she was considering pursuing higher office.

    In an interview with the New York Times, the lawmaker known by her self-embraced nickname AOC suggested that the Democratic Party would be better off leaning leftward.

    “I’ve been begging the party to let me help them for two years. That’s also the damn thing of it. I’ve been trying to help. Before the election, I offered to help every single swing district Democrat with their operation. And every single one of them, but five, refused my help. And all five of the vulnerable or swing district people that I helped secured victory or are on a path to secure victory. And every single one that rejected my help is losing. And now they’re blaming us for their loss.

    So I need my colleagues to understand that we are not the enemy. And that their base is not the enemy. That the Movement for Black Lives is not the enemy, that Medicare for all is not the enemy. This isn’t even just about winning an argument. It’s that if they keep going after the wrong thing, I mean, they’re just setting up their own obsolescence.”

    Turning the attention to her own long-term plans, Ocasio-Cortez said she was not even sure if she wanted to continue in politics.

    “It’s the incoming. It’s the stress. It’s the violence,” she said. “It’s the lack of support from your own party. It’s your own party thinking you’re the enemy. But I’m serious when I tell people the odds of me running for higher office and the odds of me just going off trying to start a homestead somewhere — they’re probably the same.”

    Ocasio-Cortez said that while the Democrat congressional caucus has painted the picture of a united front, reality is something different.
