Democrat On The Job For Almost Two Months Is “Making A List” Of Moderate Democrats

Democrats have long been fans of Democracy, as long as people vote the Proper Way. AOC wants to take it back to a new level, because she’s Offended. Like with everything else. Perhaps we should call it Millennial Socialism

Ocasio-Cortez warns of ‘list’ for moderate Dems who vote with Republicans: report

After more than two dozen moderate Democrats broke from their party’s progressive wing and sided with Republicans on a legislative amendment Wednesday, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly sounded the alarm in a closed-door meeting Thursday and said those Democrats were “putting themselves on a list.”

The legislation that prompted the infighting was a bill that would expand federal background checks for gun purchases, the Washington Post reported. But a key provision requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns saw 26 moderate Democrats side with Republicans.

According to the Post, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded her wayward center-leaning colleagues, telling them: “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.”

But Ocasio-Cortez reportedly took it a step further. She said she would help progressive activists unseat those moderates in their districts in the 2020 elections, the report said. Her spokesman Corbin Trent told the paper that she made the “list” comment during the meeting.

“She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” Trent said, referring to ICE.

A list, huh? Switching to that Washington Post article

They insist they are not going to be dissuaded from voting with their districts, and many are warning that majority control is at stake.

“It’s this class of members that got elected that are the reason we have the majority,” said Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), a co-chairman of the moderate Blue Dog Coalition. “Many of them come from these [moderate] districts, and their promise to their constituents was that they were going to put people over politics.”

It’s one of the big problems with politics these days: federally elected officials are mostly doing the business of the national party, rather than what matters to their state/district first. If you’re from a moderately Democratic area, not just by voting but by belief, should you be standing with the San Francisco hardcore Leftists on everything? Should they follow everything Pelosi says, especially when she’s in one of the safest districts in the nation? Should they be following a person who is being the worst of Millennial stereotypes in AOC? There’s two choice for her: she’ll either become the leader of the Democrats, or she will flame out. If she keeps this up, you may see Democrats undercutting her for the 2020 election.

    Our esteemed host asked:

    That’s just it: simply by having given the lovely Mrs Pelosi their votes for Speakess, and the Democrats the majority, they have enabled the San Francisco hardcore Leftists on everything. They have given the left scheduling power, they have given the left committee chairmanships, they have given the left subpoena power.

    A ‘moderate’ Democrat would basically favor very incremental change, and maintaining an American culture at least reasonably similar to normalcy. A ‘moderate’ Democrat wouldn’t be in favor of using government power to say that boys can be girls or that homosexuals somehow have superior rights or that illegal immigrants should be favored over citizens or that Congress should be anti-Semitic, but that is what they have enabled.

    A ‘moderate’ Democrat might think that the wealthy have a bit too much power, or that the most intelligent, hard-working and productive Americans ought to pay a bit more in taxes, to help the stupid, slothful and unproductive — but not by their own fault, of course! — to live better lives, but he wouldn’t want to kill the capitalist goose who has laid so many golden eggs, but simply by voting for a Democratic majority, said moderates have enabled the socialists.
