About a month ago, Julie Kelly observed that, despite her title, Nancy Pelosi is not the leader of the Congressional Democrats. Instead, there is a Shadow Speaker.
Namely Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Even though the wealthy, septuagenarian from San Francisco now wields the speaker’s gavel, it is the bartender-turned-representative Millennial from the Bronx who possesses the power. Ocasio-Cortez essentially is this Congress’s shadow speaker, agitating the Democrats’ policy agenda and creating her own caucus of diverse, radical soulmates. Further, she is the poster girl for a left-lurching Democratic Party. Democrats now view socialism more positively than capitalism, according to an August 2018 poll and also want to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service as they impeach the president.
I think Julie Kelly is right.
She’s also spot-on when she describes Ocasio-Cortez as “[a]rmed with a hubris born out of inexperience and a leftist worldview born out of economic and historical ignorance.”
In short, she’s an immature, impulsive snotty teenager trapped in the body of a 29-year-old woman.
Her thin-skinned tirades on Twitter have the emotional maturity of a high school freshman. And her passive/aggressive ability to sic others on those who hurt her tender feelings is straight out of the mean girl playbook.
Of course, Alexandria isn’t the only snotty teenager in the Democrat Freshman class.
Ocasio-Cortez — along with her anti-Semitic pals Ilham Omar and Rashida Tlaib – form a triumvirate of snotty teens who have coopted the messaging from Speaker Pelosi.
These mean girls have mowed over the out-matched Pelosi in order to advance an agenda of Socialism, Anti-Semitism, identity politics, class envy and revenge.
Because what high school mean girl doesn’t enjoy revenge?
Lucky for them, there are plenty of equally immature sycophants on social media who gobble up their garbage without a moment’s hesitation.
Nancy is being outmaneuvered and outplayed.
And she is utterly ill-equipped to bring the snotty teenagers to heel.
While it’s fun watching the Democrat caucus battle amongst itself, it does make me wonder what kind of reception President Trump is going to get at tonight’s State of the Union Address.
Self-absorbed, snotty teenagers aren’t the type to give a crap about respect or decorum or protocol or Constitutional duties.
And if Alexandria has proven anything, it’s that she excels at making everything about herself.
You know, like every snotty teenager.
Along with her compatriots, she is an uncontrollable rabble-rouser, and she wears it like a badge of honor.
And when I saw whom Ocasio-Cortez has invited as her SOTU guest, I knew instantly that she has some uncontrollable rabble-rousing planned for tonight.
“She wasn’t planning on leaping into that elevator ahead of the Kavanaugh vote…”
Right. That’s why there just happened to be a ton of news cameras there to film it – because it was a spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment inspiration.
Is the snotty teenager planning on turning the SOTU into a circus like the ones we witnessed during Kavanaugh’s confirmation?
I’m thinking yes.
Alexandria doesn’t see her role as “Legislator” or “Representative.”
Instead, she’s a die-hard Alinskyite with the emotional maturity of Jan Brady.
She believes her role is to bring the Resistance into the halls of government.
No more pounding on the closed doors of the Supreme Court. No! Now the Resistance is right there – sitting in the House Chamber looking to break some heads and shake things up.
And given her love for fawning praise from mindless drones on Twitter, I really wouldn’t put it past Alexandria to invite this lunatic for the sole purpose of causing a scene.
It would be the perfect way to generate social media buzz and tons of “Yaaaas, Queen!” tweets from her slobbering fans.
And that is all that has ever mattered to the Congresswoman from the State of Twitter.
Think it’s out of the question?
I don’t. In fact, I’d say it’s highly likely.
As a general rule, Democrats always push too hard and too far.
And this snotty teen takes that lack of self-reflection and self-control to an extreme.
Not that I expect Ocasio-Cortez to do the rabble-rousing herself. That would never happen.
As I pointed out in the past, Alexandria always fights her battles through proxies. On Twitter, she isn’t the one doing the attacking. Instead, she riles up her followers over something someone else says, then sends them off to attack on her behalf.
Which brings me back to her choice of invited guest.
Why invite someone who already has proven that she is an out-of-control screamer who doesn’t care about making a scene for the cameras?
You don’t do that unless you’re hoping your guest attack dog goes full-on scream queen on your behalf.
Just look at the tweet from Popular Democracy that Alexandria retweeted yesterday:
“Well behaved women rarely make history.”
Tell me this isn’t a set-up to disrupt the President’s speech.
It sure seems like it to me.
And rather than sniff and say, “Well, I never!” I’m actually hoping it happens.
As I’ve said countless times before, normal Americans are uncomfortable around the unhinged.
Most people are.
And I think voters who don’t take their cues from mental midgets in expensive lipstick on social media would find that kind of unhinged behavior disgusting.
Sure, the Resistance drones who let President Trump live rent-free in their heads will eat it up with a spoon.
But normal Americans who aren’t Trump-obsessed lunatics will not be amused.
The folks who recoiled in disgust at the way these same hysterics behaved during Kavanaugh’s confirmation will not be amused.
The suburban women who voted Democrat over their distaste for Trump’s tweets will not be amused.
And neither, I think, will Nancy Pelosi.
