Or, as she’s known among her friends on the Right, Occasional-Cortex (and Neiman Marxist to her Inner Circle). Yeah, this is gonna be a fun two years for us on the Right with Millennial self-righteousness born of micro-aggressions and fire-hoses full of “you’re nothing but a victim” messaging. Yep, this will be a great time of watching the latest version of Democrat in-fighting: self-inflicted totem pole identity group political cannibalism (emphasis mine, reformatted):
Ocasio-Cortez: I’m Already Being Discriminated Against On Capitol Hill
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was only elected a week ago, but she’s already causing a stir in Washington. Her first big appearance was at a climate change protest — at the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who the representative-elect has signaled she isn’t ready to support for her bid to take back the role of House Speaker. The nation’s youngest congresswoman has also been sounding the alarm over racism and sexism she suggests she’s already experienced on Capitol Hill. “Dem Spouse + Member luncheon were at the same time today. I was sent to spouse event,” she wrote late Wednesday. “Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer.”
Two days, TWO FULL DAYS – and this is just the beginning of “Campus Outrage takes over Congress” follies. Serves the Democrats right – they started it, they fueled it, they promulgated it, they LOVED it – as long as it wasn’t where they were. Law of Unintended Consequences! Full time, all the time. And they can’t get rid of her, either.
“Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color,” she concluded.
Yep, the high and mighty are really gonna enjoy this one. Now they’re gonna get the Full Monty of what the rest of us have been experiencing. This will be glorious to behold as, thus far, Occasional-Cortex doesn’t seem to have any filter or self-governor on what she says. Classic SJW behavior and she’s ALL theirs.
On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez triggered some of her fellow Democrats when she made a surprise appearance at a sit-in protest by a group of climate activists calling themselves the “Sunrise Movement” staged outside of the highest ranking Democrat in the House, and her potential future boss. The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reports:
Ocasio-Cortez addressed the protesters, who were holding signs asking for a “Green New Deal” from Democrats in charge, and demanding “Green Jobs for All,” shook hands, and gave high-fives to the 50 or so protesters who blocked the entrance to Pelosi’s office. The event marked Ocasio-Cortez’s first visit to the soon-to-be Speaker’s office, and leftists were pretty miffed that she introduced herself to her Democratic colleagues not by embracing inter-party collegiality, but by openly disagreeing with her party’s long-time leadership.
The newly elected representative slammed her critics online Thursday.
“When I respectfully join young people in an action promoting climate action while encouraging leadership decisions, it’s ‘divisive,'” she wrote. “Yet when *other* Dems hold the Speaker vote hostage unless conservative concessions are made, it’s business as usual.”
In the post, she links to a report by The Hill about a bid to rob Pelosi of her throne. Here’s how the piece begins:
Democrats in the Problem Solvers Caucus are proving to be the latest hurdle to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) rise to the Speakership. Ten Democrats in the bipartisan, 48-member group are vowing to withhold their support for Pelosi — or any other Speaker nominee — unless the candidate commits, in writing, to certain changes in House rules designed to empower rank-and-file lawmakers and break partisan gridlock.
Standards of radical behavior hitched to radical Progressive policies expressed in political Power. And pundits thought that the Republican caucus had issues? And its only going to get worse and more worse as the “upstarts” see “Power just lying there in the street” and just want to pick it up. And remember, the Nieman Marxist has already, in true Millennial fashion, talked about perhaps being Speaker herself? Why not? Barista a couple of months ago, incoherent candidate two weeks ago, Speaker next week (that’s enough time in grade, eh?) and President in 2020. Those ARE the expectations of Millennials – they were taught so with all kinds of “I showed” self-esteem laden Participation Trophies since pre-school, teaching them that they are owed everything by those “old rich white people” (which Pelosi is certainly that – how sweet!).
Pelosi, while voicing general support for the group’s ideas, has not issued a written commitment to adopting them. And the Democratic co-chairman of the group, Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), said Tuesday that he won’t support her without such assurances.
Ocasio-Cortez has also been in the news this week for her opposition to Amazon’s big HQ2 deal, which she touted as an example of how she can unite people while holding true to her principles
Yeah, headaches for all of the Dems down in DC.
Hey, speaking off David Hogg, last time I heard anything about him was a couple of weeks before the election – where’d he go? You’d think with the Dem wins he’d still be front and center, right? After all, this IS his “gap” year and he said politics is what he wants to do for the rest of his life, so why no media appearances?
It’s like he up and disappeared; did he upset the Clintons somehow?
