Pelosi Pissed As Liberal Media Loves Socialist Millennial Who Beat Democratic Leader

In what will almost certainly be remembered as a softball interview for the ages, "Morning Joe" hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough feted the upstart winner of the Democratic primary in New York's 14th Congressional district, which covers parts of Queens and the Bronx. In an upset that's being compared to Tea Party activist David Brat's 2014 upset of then-Majority Leader Republican Rep. Eric Cantor, 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trounced longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, a member of the Democrats' Congressional leadership.

The upset even caught the attention of President Trump, who tweeted that Crowley perhaps "should've been more respectful" to his president (and fellow Queens native).

Brzezinski kicked off the interview by asking Ocasio-Cortez, a former Bernie Sanders organizer who ran on a platform of medicare-for-all and abolishing ICE, "how are you feeling" and whether she's had a chance yet "to take it all in?"

"You know, it feels great," Ocasio-Cortez responded. "It felt great even before the results came in, walking around the community, seeing how many people were excited to vote yesterday was incredible. And I think we’re just kind of still processing with the rest of the nation right now."

Brzezinski praised Ocasio-Cortez for having the "clearest message" of any Democrat that she's ever heard, while she and Scarborough fawned over the "hard work" required to pull off an upset like this.

The toughest question she faced? How will you pay for your socialist programs? To which Ocasio-Cortez offered what one observer described as an "incoherent" response.

Watch the full interview below:

Meanwhile, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (who might secretly be relieved about the prospect of Joe Crowley's defeat given that he was positioning himself to challenge her for the leadership), assured reporters that Ocasio-Cortez's victory was "about that district. It is not about anything else," Pelosi insisted.

"They made a choice in one district. So let’s not get yourself carried away as an expert on demographics and the rest of that. Within the caucus or outside the caucus, we are — again, we have an array of genders, generations, geography, and there is opinion in our caucus, and we’re proud of that. The fact that in a very progressive district in New York, it went more progressive than — Joe Crowley is a progressive, but more she’s left than Joe Crowley, is about that district."

Except that maybe it is: As Hillary Clinton's decisive defeat at the hands of President Trump demonstrated, young people and the working class aren't excited by typical Democratic corporatism.

As a pillar of her campaign, Ocasio-Cortez didn't take corporate PAC money. Expect to see more upstarts mimic that approach.

I think you’ll need some garlic and a stake for that too...

#walkaway Movement is about to

Democrats have fully removed the veil. Just change the name to CPUSA.

edit: I read the twitter feed. My GAWD millennials are dense. I’ll leave a quote of the best of the bunch. They were talking about funding and one millennial asked a somewhat normal question about economic math and shit. I guess unicorns are real to some of them.

 

 

“Do you actually believe if the US government had to print an extra 3.5 trillion dollars a year to pay for these ideas, literally doubling its current revenues, and almost doubling the current supply of currency in circulation, there would be no more inflation than today?”

When you give stuff away for free (doesn't matter what it is) that stuff becomes worthless:

Free education - not worth anything

Free car (yes where I live they were giving away cars) - they quickly get ruined

Free housing - turns to shit in short order.

Again, free anything (healthcare, education, housing, stuff) isn't worth anything because 1) anyone can get it and 2) the presence of it does not differentiate you from anyone else.

People do not appreciate anything that they don't have a vested interest in (skin in the game) and so they trash it.

Best case, people trash stuff, worst case is that everyone becomes impoverished due to the free give aways and the tax dollars it consumes.

Exactly! The left doesn't understand this. Calhoun did a number of mouse utopia experiments where everything was provided to the mice or rats. None of the experiments were successful. All of the experiments failed as the population became unstable. All the needs of the mice were provided. It made them weaker, not stronger. The social bonds were also destroyed. People need to understand the implications of this experiment. As if the death of 200 million people under communism in the last century were not evidence enough. I would rather not live in the communist fucking version of a mouse utopia or plantation. No fucking way.

i think you're partially correct (upvote!)...BUT the 'left' absolutely understands the dependence on said free stuff and the resultant destruction of the social moors...they're just creating a 'subsection' of the upper-poor that are the triggered purple shirts...

 

the way the Dems have been leaning more left this 'victory' is only somewhat surprising...but i also believe this could have harsher ramifications to the Dems 'standard-bearers' and the overall efficacy of the Dem party...

 

and I say a hearty THANK YOU!!  stupid millennial emoticon-drama-induced-triggered-snowflake-zombies!!

"In an upset that's being compared to Tea Party activist David Brat's 2014 upset of then-Majority Leader Republican Rep. Eric Cantor"

That's a terrible analogy. The Tea Party represented an upstart movement inside the Republican party that was co-opted and rendered toothless within a few years. But Alexandria Ocasi-Cortez' defeat of a white male career Democrat incumbent represents the next logical step in an unbroken, hundred-years-long series of steps in the same direction for the Democrat party. With this victory, Jews have now  consolidated their control of the Democrat party and completely transformed it into the anti-white party. They are now ready to implement their Bolshevist revolution in America, bringing chaos, destruction, and hell if they are not stopped dead in their tracks.

Couple things:

 

1. There is no American "left" - just corporate "progressives"

 

2. There is already communism at work in the U.S. - for the make-work programs known as the military, the spy agencies, the DEA and if you took away most of their funding you could easily pay for healthcare.  Those agencies are quasi-communist freebie programs for a select population. 

 

3. Canada, New Zealand, the Scandinavian countries, Australia, Isra-hell, and numerous other countries without a massive military and without the need to throw people into cages for doing drugs would like to have a word with you. Why don't you talk to people in those countries (the vast majority anyway) about putting their healthcare into the hands of a cartel of corporate leeches like we have here. I suspect they'll tell you to go fuck yourself.

The left believes that giving the poor piles of money will turn them into "elite" liberals.  This isn't so.  In the same way that most lottery winners end up in bankruptcy, giving the poor endless amounts of cash only creates more poor.  

We need to change our voting laws to only allow tax paying citizens the right to vote.  Anyone that receives money from the government must not be allowed to vote to include government workers.

'money from the government'

 

The idea of restricting voting to people who are property owners was the way it worked, I think. Your variation has basic merit, but I'd ask where you'd draw your line? SS recipients? Military? You'd have to include state and local governments too, so there's your cops, firefighters, and everyone at city hall, the courthouse, etc too.

Parasitoid corporate fascist zombies are unable to understand anything not based on greed and violence. What Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes is that the people should have the basics: food, shelter, medical care and education. The parasitoid corporate fascists want humans to be ignorant, unhealthy, fearful debt slaves, constantly on the verge of losing everything they own, including their lives. It's a simple choice for voters to make. In 2016, the polls had put socialist Sanders 20 points ahead of Trump in a head to head. This is exactly why the parasitoid corporate fascist Democratic party rigged the primary against him. They would rather lose and blame the loss on a fake external threat (Russia) than win with a domestic policy socialist, and a questionable parasitoid candidate (Sanders still supports resource wars, the Israeli lobby, and US support for jihadi terrorists).

A parasitoid is an organism that lives in close association with its host and at the host's expense, and which sooner or later kills it.

Did the bitch say "dignity for working class Americans?"

Then why didn't her Bros in Congress clap and cheer about Trump's success in reducing joblessness for blacks.

Another ignorant politician (in this case a millennial) coming down the pike. I don't see ANY Democrats proposing anythnig positive abut jobs, the economy, trade, etc.

They only spout hate, violence and curses and despise working American citizens.

AOC lives in a fantasy world where there is a great oversupply of labor AND everyone makes a comfortable wage. It's unrealistic: Either commerce will continue with off-the-books labor making far less money and having fewer protections OR the .gov cracks down on every venture that doesnt pay the decreed "living" minimum wage and stores lie empty as  businesses shutter, and then EVERYONE is equally broke and miserable. THAT's the equality that all Socialists eventually deliver.

Rumor has it Trump has had the Cuban sonic weapon reverse-engineered and deployed the first US version on the WH Press Corp. It needed work. Version 1.7 was deployed on Maxine. Big improvement. Ver 2.0 promises to be a boffo hit with progressive rioters. They'll be turning the bike locks and bats on each other. Expect that by autumn 2018!

Nah, all these retarded boomers will just be replaced by Mexican, Black and Asian Democrats who will push the party even further left on an openly anti-white platform.

And the shitlibs are astonishingly stupid and naive to think they will be safe in the type of society they've been agitating for or that it will utltimately conform to their utopian fantasy.  

They are more likely to get BBQ'd if SHTF instead or at a minimum forced out with no power whatsoever as second class citizens. I hope they enjoy it.

The Asians are starting to shift away from the DNC, from what I can see. They built up some actual wealth, and at this point they no longer receive the same minority protections as other groups. The minute you are the target of theft, you stop hanging around the thieves.

Aside from this, I was recently listening to an Asian libertarian who goes by "Pholosopher" on Youtube, and she explained that as a "normie" she just thought of government programs as "society helping the little guy." IMO, 80% of Democrats are in this very naive space. Her mind changed in part because some of her family members were victims of the Khmer Rouge, and this led to some actual thought about what would possess people to do the things they did.

IMO, the crazier this gets, the more obvious it is that it is time to re-dedicate our lives to rebuilding a sound culture, otherwise we will not see any culture rebuilt until we go through another multi-century Dark Age.

Asians should always vote conservative because Asians for the most part are easy targets of black and Hispanic thieves.  They are physically weaker, and the odds of them having a gun is much less because Asians don't have the same gun-owning history as white males.  Also, a merit-based immigration system favors Asians much, much more than Latin America or Africa.  Asians who are lefties and voting for these lefty socialists are slicing their own throats.
