Democrats are panicking about their field of candidates for 2020.
No one is really pulling away from the pack and the nomination may go all the way to the convention.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning 2020 announcement left Democrats scrambling.
There is little doubt that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the biggest stars in the Democrat Party.
Ocasio-Cortez’s massive social media following combined with the cult-like worship from the party’s grassroots base established the freshman Congresswoman as the ideological trendsetter of the left.
In the past year, Democrat Party Presidential contenders adopted her socialist and anti-American proposals to abolish ICE and established a Marxist “Green New Deal” in order to woo Ocasio-Cortez’s supporters.
Ocasio-Cortez then made waves in the Democrat primary when she and her fellow “Squad” members – Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib – endorsed Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders.
The Sanders endorsement made it clear Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow travelers are radical leftist revolutionaries trying to overthrow America’s constitutional system and turn the United States into a socialist country like Venezuela.
This strain of anti-Americanism is deeply unpopular with voters and some top Democrats fear it could tank the party’s chances in 2020.
But the depths of the problems Ocasio-Cortez intends to cause were revealed in an interview with New York Magazine.
Ocasio-Cortez told the fake news outlet that the Congressional Progressive Caucus should kick out members that don’t vote the 100 percent anti-American line claiming the Democrat Party is ‘too big a tent.’
New York Magazine exclusively reported:
She said the Congressional Progressive Caucus should start kicking people out if they stray too far from the party line. Other caucuses within the Democratic Party in Congress require applications, Ocasio-Cortez pointed out. But “they let anybody who the cat dragged in call themselves a progressive. There’s no standard,” she said.
The same goes for the party as a whole: “Democrats can be too big of a tent.”
Ocasio-Cortez also made it clear she would not enthusiastically support Joe Biden should Biden emerge as the nominee because Ocasio-Cortez stated that only in a two party system like that in America would Biden and her share a political affiliation.
New York Magazine also exclusively reported:
It is comments like that that kept Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Democratic Party from reaching any kind of meaningful détente. I asked her what she thought her role would be as a member of Congress during, for instance, a Joe Biden presidency. “Oh God,” she said with a groan. “In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are.”
These interview quotes scare leading Democrats.
It will take a 100 percent united front to have any hope of winning in 2020.
But if ideologically oriented Democrats aren’t willing to go all-in for Joe Biden – should Biden win the nomination – Donald Trump will secure a second term next November.
