Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heard two words that had all hell breaking loose on the Left
There is about to be a Civil War in the Democrat Party.
Naturally, it revolves around New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heard two words that had all hell breaking loose on the Left.
After the 2020 elections, many Democrats were not happy with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members.
Ocasio-Cortez defined the Democrat Party by staking out unpopular positions on defunding the police and supporting the violent Black Lives Matter movement.
As Joe Biden prepared to take office, his advisors prepared him for Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow socialists to flex their political muscles and demand he embrace the Green New Deal and the rest of the socialist agenda.
The new book, This Will Not Pass, written by New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin, revealed that senior advisor Cedric Richmond told associates that “Squad” members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar – who previously attacked Richmond over his ties to the oil and natural gas industry – were “f***ing idiots.”
Fox News reports:
According to the book, which will be released next Tuesday, Richmond was the most vocal of President Biden’s advisers who were preparing for a progressive party mutiny, blasted the Democrats’ left wing for misreading the 2020 campaign results and not having political savviness in a phone call to a Louisiana ally after his appointment was announced.
Richmond had been targeted by the progressive activist group the Sunrise Movement over his fossil fuel industry ties and was not too happy with Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and the other “Squad” members, going as far as to call them “f—ing idiots.”
But Richmond was right to be worried about Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow socialists directing policy in a Democrat-run Washington.
Joe Biden campaigned as a moderate, but once in office he immediately surrendered to the socialist Left.
Biden embraced open borders, trillions in new socialist spending, and COVID vaccine and mask mandates.
Joe Biden acting as a rubber stamp for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Party served as the driving force behind him losing more support in the polls quicker than any President in American history.
The Real Clear Politics polling average shows just 41 percent of Americans approve of Joe Biden’s handling of his job as President, setting the Democrats up for a Midterm drubbing in November.
And Cedric Richmond’s fears of the “Squad’s” political acumen provide prescient.
