Ocasio-Cortez is Firing First Shots in New Democratic Civil War


There are plenty of anecdotes regarding the “taste of your own medicine”, so I’ll spare you fine folks my own rehashing of the redundant rhetoric.

Instead, we should examine the absolute insanity occurring within the democratic party as 2020 looms.

You see, the democrats have been using a “divide and conquer” method of politicking as of late, much like what they’ve accused Russia of doing during the 2016 election.  The irony is delicious, certainly, but there are dire possible consequences to be examined as well.

The left loves to divvy up their constituents into smaller and smaller groups in order to exploit our emotions for political gain.  They an galvanize a small, vocal group of Americans much more easily than a large one, and by targeting the loudest of these groups, their reach becomes exponential.

We all know of a vegan or Crossfit enthusiast who simply will not let a day pass without spreading the gospel of their lifestyle.  As an entrepreneur, these are the folks you want to court.  You want someone who lives and breathes their lifestyle so that, when you corporately co-op their identity, you will have them speaking your name at all times.

That’s why the left goes after the climate change crowds and the other outspoken fringes:  These are the loud voices.

But this division into overzealous fractions of society, is horrendous of the health of the American psyche, and it’s showing in the democratic party’s 2019 Civil War.

House Democrats exploded in recriminations Thursday over moderates bucking the party, with liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans “on a list” for a primary challenge.

In a closed-door session, a frustrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., lashed out at about two dozen moderates and pressured them to get on board. “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision,” Pelosi said, according to two people present but not authorized to discuss the remarks publicly.

The loudest of them all, however, went a step further.

But Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating that she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election.

Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said she told her colleagues that Democrats who side with Republicans “are putting themselves on a list.”

As the party implodes, will there even be a legitimate challenge to President Trump in 2020, or will the leftist infighting ignite the figurative dumpster fire the we all know the democratic base is capable of becoming?
