    Pelosi: I Called Out AOC Because She Basically Accused Our Centrist Members Of Being Segregationists

    Pelosi: I Called Out AOC Because She Basically Accused Our Centrist Members Of Being Segregationists




    Pelosi: I called out AOC and her "Squad" because her office basically accused our centrist members of being segregationists
    07/11/2019 ~ By AllahPundit
    Pelosi’s patience is running thin, she noted at her press conference this morning: “They took offense because I addressed, at the request of my members, an offensive tweet that came out of one of the members’ offices that referenced our Blue Dogs and our New Dems essentially as segregationists,” Pelosi said. “Our members took offense at that. I addressed that. How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them.” “But I’m not going to be discussing it any further,” Pelosi said. “I said what I’m going to say.” This isn’t the first time a member of the “Squad” (or a member of their staffs) has accused the Democratic caucus of prejudice. AOC did it last night, of course, before disingenuously denying that she did. But Ilhan Omar beat her to the punch months ago, claiming that Republicans *and some Democrats* couldn’t stand having to treat a black Muslim immigrant woman as their equal. Go figure that Nancy’s getting tired of having her majority-makers in the center — and herself — impugned.
    Devil’s advocate exit question: It *is* bad form for Pelosi to mock how little electoral support the “Squad” has, isn’t it? If you want to knock them for smearing their colleagues as racists, have at it. But to imply that they can be ignored when collectively they represent millions and Ocasio-Cortez is a media phenomenon unprecedented for a freshman member of the House is weirdly dismissive not just of the “Squad” but of their constituents. Boehner loathed the tea partiers in his caucus but I don’t remember him ever claiming that their support was negligible. Like it or not, Nancy, the woke brigades are a meaningful part of your base. Even if they’re not (yet) a majority.


    Comment:
    The Dems are incapable is catching the irony in their little identity politics play. The Progressive Marxist Socialist/DSA Democrats have created their own circular firing squad. The typical PMS/DSA formula and strategy. Insult in crass terms folks you deem insufficiently woke. Get called out for your insults. Then claim the rebuke was racist within your own party.
    I'd love to see CNN have AOC debate Kamala Harris on whether Pelosi or Biden is the more vicious geriatric neoliberal* Don't kid yourself, by then they'll be insulting each other (albeit minus the "geriatric" part). These purges don't end until there's no one left.
    Indeed, only in America is it possible for uneducated, ignorant clowns like AOC and her squad of four to be elected a “representatives”. They're a national disgrace.

    The socialists in this country are far more dangerous than any of those in the tea party or the kkk.

    This infighting is exactly what Trump needs to get elected again.

    Way to rise above your own pettiness, Democrats.

    The Radical Squad is running the Dem party and it's out there on stage for all to see. Warren is STILL embracing the New Green Deal. Every Dem on stage raised their hands for illlegals' healthcare. Pelosi is up at the podium just today muttering about "breaking up families' with deportation, which happened 3 MILLION TIMES under Obama.
    Their party is a mess.

    Saying this for the umpteenth time... Democrats have clearly not learned a damn thing.

    They are out of touch with America and believe their own press.

    Greetings, bubba.

    As Alice in Wonderland famously stated..."Things are getting curiouser and curiouser!" So how did Lewis Carroll know in 1865 that we'd be saying that today?
