Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was just stabbed in the back by someone she least expected
Establishment Democrats believe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an asset because of her social media following.
But she causes them constant headaches every time she opens her mouth.
And now her act has worn thin and her 15 minutes may be up.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez helped push a sit-in protest in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office for the so-called “Green New Deal.”
Now, some Democrats are adopting the 29-year-old freshman Democrat-Socialists’ positions.
But she has a growing number of enemies piling up on all sides who are sick of her spouting off anything that pops into her head.
Entrenched Democrats are privately worried her radical socialist positions will doom their chances in the 2020 elections.
And now they’re floating a primary challenge.
As reported last week in The Hill:
“At least one House Democrat has been privately urging members of the New York delegation to recruit a local politician from the Bronx or Queens to challenge Ocasio-Cortez.
“What I have recommended to the New York delegation is that you find her a primary opponent and make her a one-term congressperson,” the Democratic lawmaker, who requested anonymity, told The Hill.
Even Democrats who are pushing the murder of children after they are born are coming to the realization that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is too toxic and a national embarrassment.
These, of course, are the same leaders who handed the 2016 nomination to Hillary Clinton by blocking the more radical Bernie Sanders.
The Hill continues:
No potential challengers to Ocasio-Cortez have yet emerged. But one New York political insider noted that the Queens and Bronx district is home to many ambitious pols who are close to Crowley and don’t like that a political outsider took his seat.
“She’s pissing off a lot of people and has probably made a lot of enemies. … A lot of people who are furious with her are Joe’s allies, including some named Crowley,” said the insider, referring to Crowley’s cousin, Elizabeth Crowley, a former New York City councilwoman. “She is a woman. She’s been moving more to the left. She would be someone interesting.” Ocasio-Cortez had better watch her back. Just ask Bernie Sanders.
Some Beltway Democrats may believe if they sacrifice Rep. Ocasio-Cortez the American people will be duped into believing the party truly is “moderate” as they claim.
But Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is far from the only Democrat proposing ideas that are beyond the pale.
Since President Trump’s election, Democrats have gone off the deep end.
They’ve called for abolishing ICE, 70 percent tax rates, and just over the past few days they’ve defended infanticide.
They’re the party of Planned Parenthood, union bosses, environmental wackos and open borders.
