AOC’s Race Card

I’m pretty sure she carries a full deck of race cards.

Congressman Lacy Clay, a senior black Democrat, charged Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with playing the race card against Speaker Nancy Pelosi because she couldn’t get her way on a bill funding the border.

‘What a weak argument. Because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting push back you resort to using the race card. Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me,’ he told reporters in the Capitol on Thursday.

Clay was referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s anger over Pelosi’s pushing through the House $4.6 billion border bill from the Republican Senate, which the speaker did after the upper chamber refused to take up the House Democrats’ measure on humanitarian aid for the border.

    AOC is good at social media, a Trump wanna be in social media but she is so darn stupid. Like many liberals, she may have gone to college but is yet so uneducated.

    Pelosi can’t keep her anti-American children in line.

    It is hilarious.

    I’ve been under the impression she wasn’t playing with a full deck.

    She’s riding a knife edge all the time, because her supporters are people who were born angry, raised angry, and if she says one thing wrong, they will flip on her like a bipolar alligator with a tooth ache.


    Her fringe liberal caucus is the very definition of a hate group.

    Of course, Clay’s outburst had nothing to do with Ocassional-Cortex and her Justice Demrats funding and stumping for the six-time pols’ opponent last year. (He won 80%+)


    “And so for that distinction to be made between my opponent and I, then that begs the question. I have fully disclosed what my expenditures go to, how I derive my money, but yet some of my opponents are involved with dark-money groups like Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress who are not fully accounting for those expenditures….. I think that [AOC] has made some rookie mistakes … like going around the country campaigning against people that she’s going to probably wind up serving with. I would think that even her advisers would tell her [that] you don’t start off making enemies. You may make enemies eventually, but in Congress it requires that you have relationships within your own party and across the aisle if you’re going to be effective – unless you’re not going to be effective“. – Clay, 8/2/2018

    And a member of an exclusionary group – who’s father helped create the group – who define themselves and exclude by race, calling out another for ‘race card’ use is freakin’ comedic gold.
