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.

Ocasio-Cortez a Fraud?

I don’t think that she’s a fraud at all. I think she’s 100% authentic. I just think she’s an idiot… and hilarious… which I don’t think that is her intent.

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday attacked what she called a double standard that has greeted her election to Congress “with suspicion” of “being a fraud.”

Referring to a Vox article detailing the failed legacy of retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis), Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter:

“Double standards are Paul Ryan being elected at 28 and immediately being given the benefit of his ill-considered policies considered genius; and me winning a primary at 28 to immediately be treated with suspicion & scrutinized, down to my clothing, of being a fraud.”

Ocasio-Cortez Hints at Abuse of Power

On the one hand, this is astonishing. On the other hand, it isn’t.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the powers of her elected office to retaliate against Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after the president’s son posted a meme trolling her on his personal Instagram account.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”

It is astonishing because you have a soon-to-be government official threatening to use her official power to subpoena someone who trolled her on Instagram. Put aside for a moment that it was Trump Jr. who trolled her. It was just a person expressing a contrary opinion on Instagram and her immediate impulse is to bring down the official weight of the federal government on him.

It is not that astonishing because this is what socialists like Ocasio-Cortez do – every time they get into power. They use the police power of government as a weapon to attack dissenters and non-believers. We’ve seen it in other nations. We’ve seen it in Wisconsin with the John Doe investigations of Walker. We’ve seen it in Obama’s IRS. There is no doubt in my mind that Ocasio-Cortez would abuse her power to go after her dissenters. The only thing she lacks is the intelligence to keep quiet about it.
