Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told the New York Times in an interview that she might quit politics, depending on the hostility of her own party towards progressive causes, AOL pointed out
“I don’t even know if I want to be in politics,” the extremist told the NY Times “You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year.”
The young politician called the Democrat Party “incompetent” for not placing progressives in top positions, warning former Vice President Joe Biden that if he does not select far-left people for top positions, the Democrats will lose big in the 2022 midterm elections.
While the media has exploded into ecstasy after they themselves declared Joe Biden the winner, before any certification, they have ignored the Democrat losses in the House.
Moderate and Liberal Democrats have pointed the finger at Cortez’s extremist agenda for the house defeats, as AOC insists if the Democrats were more radical they would have won more seats.
AOC has pushed for defunding the police, free healthcare for everyone including illegal aliens, a radical environmental policy, full support of the violent BLM insurrectionist movement and even placing Trump supporters on a Stalinesque purge list.
Democratic members of Congress sounded the alarm during a caucus call on Thursday, arguing that progressive policy ideas like “defund the police” and the Green New Deal was detrimental to their performance in elections.
A Democratic source told Fox News that members on the call complained that progressive rallying cries cost moderates their seats. “There’s absolutely no accountability from the speaker,” one frustrated Democrat said.
We should have won big but you know the defund the police issue, the Green New Deal — those issues killed our members. Having everybody walk the plank on qualified immunity with the cops. That just hurt a lot of members. No one’s taking responsibility for it.”
House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said if “we are going to run on Medicare for All, defund the police, socialized medicine, we’re not going to win,” his office confirmed.
“There’s a reason Barack Obama built an entire national campaign apparatus outside of the Democratic National Committee,” Cortez told the Times. “And there’s a reason that, when he didn’t activate or continue that, we lost House majorities. Because the party — in and of itself — does not have the core competencies, and no amount of money is going to fix that.”
