Don’t worry, she couldn’t be more help to PDT if she was a false-flag plant. According to many real news sources I’ve seen, she is alienating Middle America and normal Americans so badly they may be loathe to vote for Democrats at all. She is becoming (or already is) the face of the party due to her outsize Twitter loudspeaker, even though she only speaks for the most radical and left wing, which is actually a tiny minority in this country.
Pelosi, love her or hate her, knows this and that’s why she’s taking the very unusual and unprecedented step of belittling and disrespecting the AOC wing- she knows they are hurting the party and may be responsible for losing the house in ’20. She is due for a comeuppance and her naivete about power politics may come to bite her on the ass. She is angering a lot of powerful Democrats. All it would take is a very well-financed black or Hispanic challenger to unseat her in the Bronx.
Tlaib, in case you are unaware, won because her district, over-whelmingly black (John Conyers old district), divided the vote between a number of black candidates, allowing the despicable Tlaib to win a plurality in a district that is Dem controlled- the primary basically equals the election. They won’t make that mistake again and Tlaib is widely seen as a one-termer who got in on a fluke.
Ilhan Omar has several serious legal problems, not the least of which is, it’s pretty clear she filed fraudulent tax returns with her boyfriend when she was married to another man (reputedly her own brother, in a case filled with skullduggery and immigration fraud implications). She will be lucky to be re-elected as well.
If things go south, there will only be Ayanna Pressley of the 4 amigas left, and that will make Pelosi and the Dem establishment very happy. Their main beef with AOC & Co. is not that they disagree with their radical grandstanding issues, it’s that they know their real intent is toxic to normal Americans and Pelosi is cagey enough to make incremental moves toward socialism, the slowly boiling frog analogy. AOC and her accomplices have turned the heat up to blast-furnace and even Democrat moderate frogs are jumping out of the brew. She’s already harmed every democrat running for prez, even Biden.
Twitter, and the voice it gives to far left radicals, is the worst thing possible for democrats because it very clearly delineates their real agenda: open borders, free giveaways like universal healthcare and free college (including to illegal immigrants), wholesale gun seizure, government paid abortions up until the moment of birth, reparations for blacks (and now gays! Hispanics are going to want to get in on this!), higher taxes, my God their even stupidly talking about bringing about Federally mandated bussing for cripe’s sake! (public support for this is in the teens, even among minorities!)
AOC is infuriating, but she is damaging the democrat brand every time she opens her stupid big mough. Every utterance is a classic Kinsley gaffe: speaking the truth that damages the speaker’s own prospects. PDT, with his great instincts on what motivates and inspires Americans, has to know she is actually his greatest ally in reelection. He has to be loving this.
