Earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized she who feels she is beyond criticism — the self-anointed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — and her trio of Alt-Left Marxists, Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — after tiring of the freshmen ‘democratic socialists’ and their resistance to Democratic Party policy and legislative priorities.
In an interview, Pelosi told The New York Times that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
For that, AOC pulled the race card on Pelosi, claiming that the Speaker’s criticism wasn’t based on anything other than a disdain for ‘women of color’ who were elected in November. She told The Washington Post that the “persistent singling out” by the speaker was “outright disrespectful” and affected “newly-elected women of color.”
You read that right. AOC, in her infinite wisdom, called Nancy Pelosi a racist. This is what Democrat Americans are getting sick of. Dems have, for decades, thrown around the term “racist” where the see potential benefit and to disarm political opponents without actually having to intellectually engage in debate. This is new territory, though.
