Nancy Pelosi Slams AOC

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at an event in the United Kingdom when asked about the attempts to move the Democrat Party further to the left, saying that a “glass of water” could have won in Ocasio-Cortez’s New York district.

Pelosi was asked about the future of the Democrat Party, and she maintained that the party must keep a centrist line if it hopes to remain nationally competitive.

“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” said Pelosi. “And she’s a wonderful member of Congress, I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”

She then gestured at a glass of water provided for her speech, and said “This glass of water would win with a D next to its name in those districts,” seeming to insult the intelligence of Democrat voters.

Pelosi then claimed that she shares all of Ocasio-Cortez’s beliefs, but now is not the time to mention them for strategic reasons. Instead, Pelosi seemed to suggest Democrats should focus on appearing centrist until they hold important offices, and then surprise Americans with the far left policies, from universal healthcare to the Green New Deal, that Ocasio-Cortez advocates.

“What we’re saying is to have a message that appeals to people that does not menace them, that really does address their concerns,” Pelosi said. “When we win, and we have the White House, and we have that, then we can expand our exuberance to some other things.”

Pelosi has faced increasing challenges within her own party in the months since the Democrats recaptured the House last year, with President Donald J. Trump saying she is “totally controlled” by radical leftists.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald Trump addressed reporters ahead of his 4 PM announcement on some kind of immigration compromise.

Trump said that Pelosi “is under total control of the radical Left, and that’s a problem.”

Trump-supporting hardliners are hoping that Trump will not offer amnesty to DREAMers in return for Wall funding, even though a solid case could be made for why it’s a good “Art of the Deal” move, forcing Pelosi to be the one who blocks amnesty because she refuses to build the Wall.

It remains to be seen whether Pelosi can carefully chide and persuade her new colleagues to lower the impact of their more radical views, and keep the Democrat Party nationally competitive for the upcoming 2020 election.

WEAK: Bernie Sanders Allows Nevada Rally to be Overrun by Deranged Anti-Dairy Activists

And this guy wants to be President?

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the presumptive front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, demonstrated his weakness in allowing his rally on Sunday in Carson City, Nevada to be overrun by deranged anti-dairy activists.

“Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I am here to ask you to stop propping up the dairy industry, and stop propping up the dairy industry,” an activist said after she wrestled the mic away from the frail 78-year-old socialist with a bad ticker.

The clip can be seen here:

After the microphone was cut off and security attempted to remove the activist from stage, three other anti-dairy activists showed up topless to protest Sanders’ supposed pro-agriculture beliefs as well.

The group behind this protest calls themselves Direct Action Everywhere, and they have identified the protester who grabbed the microphone from Sanders as Priya Sawhney, who lists herself as the co-founder of the organization.

“I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them. Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires,” Sawhney said in a statement included in a press release from the organization. “People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement.”

This is not the first time that Sanders has allowed angry, unruly activists to take over his rallies. He did so in 2015 when he allowed Black Lives Matter to rush the stage and actually handed the microphone over to those belligerent racial-grievance mongers.

The Hill reported on Sanders’ weakness during his first presidential campaign:

Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking.

Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.

After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.

One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.”

Johnson spoke, among other things, about police violence in Seattle, mentioning a federal investigation into the city’s law enforcement that resulted in the appointment of a monitor to make sure Seattle police were complying with the terms set forth by the Justice Department.

“Bernie says that he’s all about the people and about grassroots. The biggest grassroots movement in this country right now is Black Lives Matter,” she added.

If Sanders somehow becomes President, he will likely be kicked around by world leaders in the same manner that he is kicked around by left-wing activists.
