Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the biggest stars in the Democrat Party.
Not everyone is happy about that fact.
A top Democrat said two words about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that will start a civil war on the left.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez becoming the face of the defund the police movement was one of the biggest factors in Republicans picking up double digit seats in the House of Representatives when even Nancy Pelosi thought Democrats would gain an additional 15-20 seats.
Republicans also swept 27 out of 27 tossup house races.
Defunding the police quickly became politically toxic as Democrats embraced the violent and racist Black Lives Matter movement and Democrat mayors and governors allowed the violent extremist movement to loot, riot and burn down cities throughout the summer of 2020.
Top Democrats were not thrilled with Ocasio-Cortez’s growing influence in the party.
Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond was set to take a job in the incoming Biden administration as a senior advisor.
That infuriated Ocasio-Cortez and her allies who were livid over the fact that Richmond had close ties to the fossil fuel industry.
In the new book “This Will Not Pass” New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns detail one phone call where Richmond slammed Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members as “f%^&ing idiots.”
Fox News reports:
According to the book, which will be released next Tuesday, Richmond was the most vocal of President Biden’s advisers who were preparing for a progressive party mutiny, blasted the Democrats’ left wing for misreading the 2020 campaign results and not having political savviness in a phone call to a Louisiana ally after his appointment was announced.
Richmond had been targeted by the progressive activist group the Sunrise Movement over his fossil fuel industry ties and was not too happy with Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and the other “Squad” members, going as far as to call them “f—ing idiots.”
Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar all support the $93,000,000,000,000 Marxist Green New Deal.
The Green New Deal is a Trojan horse to impose total socialism on Americans under the guise of combatting so-called “climate change.”
Ocasio-Cortez once falsely claimed that so-called “climate change” would destroy the planet within 12 years.
Democrats latched on to so-called “climate change” – which Donald Trump repeatedly called a hoax – as a way to scare people into supporting trillions of dollars in tax increases and regulations that would destroy the American energy sector.
Ocasio-Cortez and other leftists view anyone tied to the oil and natural gas industry with suspicion.
Joe Biden’s cognitive decline means more so than any other White House in history of personnel policy.
Ocasio-Cortez likely feared that Richmond would be in position to steer the administration away from socialist Green New Deal policies.
But Ocasio-Cortez had little to worry about.
Biden’s handlers cast their loss with the left and pursued a version of the Green New Deal as part of Biden’s stalled nearly $5,000,000,000,000 socialist spending bill.
