Liberal vs. Liberal: The Civil War Democrats Don’t Want to Speak About
The Democratic Party is experiencing a civil war. Theyâre trying to be quiet about it. They wouldnât dare let anyone see the infighting as it could give the GOP some leverage.
Yet, if they think that we donât see the battles, theyâre sadly mistaken.
Itâs the liberals versus the liberalsâ¦with all of the moderate Democrats staying quietly out of the squabbles.
It comes down to old school liberals versus new school liberals.
Essentially, itâs Nancy Pelosi vs. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Itâs no surprise that the two donât get along. Forget about the 50-year age gap. The two simply canât see eye to eye, and both want as much power as they can muster.
Why should we care about the civil war thatâs erupting within Congress? Well, when the country is being controlled by Democrats, they should at least agree on how theyâre going to ruin the country.
While the media tried to show how Pelosi and AOC have such a mentor/mentee relationship, it couldnât be further from the truth. AOC would like to see Pelosi step down and Pelosi thinks that AOC is too young and too power-hungry for her own good.
There are some interesting stories coming out of just how aggressive the two have been toward each other. When reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere released his new book âBattle for the Soul: Inside the Democratsâ Campaign to Defeat Trump,â weâre given an inside look.
One of AOCâs first pieces of legislation to roll out was the Green New Deal. Only, Pelosi was going to sabotage it.
In February of 2019, Pelosi called Ed Markey, a Senator from Massachusetts, to tell him to hold off. She felt that it wasnât the right time to roll it out and that she wanted a more substantive policy. She also told the senator to not let AOC have the platform because she didnât want to give the young congresswoman that much power.
Markey, however, decided not to listen to Pelosi. That meant that the Green New Deal was unveiled by the progressives. It also meant that Pelosi had to go on the defensive to downplay just how far-reaching the proposal was.
How is anyone supposed to get behind any of the legislation being proposed by Democrats when we know at least half of their own party is against it? If itâs proposed by the progressives like AOC, we know Pelosi is against it. And if Pelosi and the rest of her old-school liberal friend propose it, we know AOC is against it.
Pelosi has made it a habit of trashing AOC to the media as well as to other members of Congress. At one point, she even mocked AOC using a childish voice when referring to âThe Squad.â In a book by Susan Page, Pelosi was quoted as telling AOC off by saying, âYouâre not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States.â
Yikes. Perhaps Pelosi needs to remember her own advice. After all, Pelosi often tries to run the House as though sheâs the only opinion that matters.
Of course, Pelosi doesnât want to admit that thereâs any kind of civil war happening. That would look unprofessional. So, she puts up a smoke and mirrors show so that everyone thinks that the Democratic Party is a united front.
Why do you think that she appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine with not only AOC but also Ilhan Omar and Jahana Hayes? Look, weâre just one big happy, cohesive family.
Pelosi is lying to herself and sheâs lying to all of America.
Everyone has seen that thereâs a civil war going on â itâs been mounting for over a year now. The only thing that we want to know is when itâs going to come to blows. Weâll need to prepare ourselves for the epic ramifications when that finally happens.
