AOC ups ante in feud with Pelosi, suggests speaker is 'singling out' newly elected 'women of color'
"You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just okay."

The public spat between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, got a lot nastier on Wednesday, with the freshman congresswoman suggesting that the speaker is "singling out" her and her colleagues based on their race.

Pelosi has worked to keep the Democratic caucus in line, specifically four newly-elected outspoken progressives: Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass..

However, a feud between Pelosi and the quartet escalated after Congress passed a border funding bill that the four young Democrats opposed. Pelosi discussed the bill, and those in her party who oppose it, in an interview last weekend. She told the New York Times: "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."
Ocasio-Cortez said to The Washington Post on Wednesday that the "persistent singling out" by the Speaker may be more than "outright disrespectful."

But the persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

This blabbermouth moronic twit thought some "women of color" could just come in and take over the chamber before they've even begun to pay their dues.

Mama Nanny is informing them that this kind of arrogant insubordination will not be tolerated in "her" House.

Nothing smells as sweet as anti-American, anti-Semitic, socialist "women of color" playing the misogynist and racist cards when trying to remain in the MSM spotlight 24/7/365 in order to control their party.

True. That's how she always wins her district. As for AOC's historically D district ...

Even in the most competitive races Tuesday, more than 80 percent of eligible voters stayed home.

In the race that caused an earthquake in the Democratic Party, 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezupset longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, 57 percent to 42 percent.

But only about 13 percent of registered Democrats turned out to vote in the 14th Congressional District that takes in parts of Queens and the Bronx, according to a preliminary city Board of Elections tally.

There are 214,750 active registered Democratic voters in the district. Only 27,744 voted, and Ocasio-Cortez won by more than 4,000 votes.

https://nypost.com/2018/06/28/most-voters-stayed-home-for-stunning-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-win/

Winning by about 4,000 votes is hardly an "earthquake" when 80% of the district didn't even bother to vote!

I think we are about to find out how smart Pelosi is. While it's true that she ultimately holds all the cards, this whole process really makes them all look bad. President Eisenhower used to have a way of dealing with hostile opponents. He would never address them directly or even name them. He left that to his close allies. I'm not sure Pelosi is that smart, nor do I want to give her any ideas.

Nancy, please disregard.

It's hardly the most important thing in the world JR.  It's simply enjoyable watching the left eat each other alive.  

What's actually quite concerning though is that the new breed of social justice warriors (admitted socialists) are to a degree succeeding in dragging the more moderate Democrats to the fringe extreme elements.  And seeing those bat shit crazy Democrats (progressives/socialists) making people like Nancy Pelosi look rational is terrifying.

Reminding this crew that Trump is the ultimate target of all democrats isn't going to work. These new members have no self discipline or respect for authority. The rep from Minnesota came here from one of the poorest failed states on earth, acquired American citizenship then was elected to the US House of Representatives and now routinely denounces the United States. I don't thing Pelosi using Trump to unify them behind her is going to work, do you?

No, I don't. Granted, I don't like either political party, and how both are all about their power, and how the majority leaders force everyone to toe their line, but these four are inexperienced and they don't seem to be thinking things through.

They remind me in a way of the tea party. And it did work for the tea party folks, so ... who knows how this will turn out. I think they're making a mistake, though. Most people don't want the democratic party driven far to the left. But again ... thinking of how it went for the tea party .... you just never know.

The conservatives on NT (I am convinced) think I am a liberal.   Some liberals here have referred to me as a conservative.   

Generally, since I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative, I will no doubt appear more liberal than conservative based on what we discuss here.   I certainly have far more disagreements with conservatives on NT but most of that is a result of my religious views.

Pelosi is not the prime example of professionalism.  She has called many of her opponents and Americans racist, Nazi's, deplorables, etc.

She is only upset because the four are airing the dirty laundry for all to see and it looks bad for her.  I don't think she had any problems with them using social media for anti-Semitic remarks or the TDS rantings.
