Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Ends Truce by Warning Incompetent’ Democratic Party

It’s re­ally hard for us to turn out non­vot­ers when they feel like noth­ing changes for them. When they feel like peo­ple don’t see them, or even ac­knowl­edge their turnout,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

If the party be­lieves af­ter 94% of Detroit went to Biden, af­ter Black or­gan­is­ers just dou­bled and tripled turnout down in Georgia, af­ter so many peo­ple or­gan­ised Philadelphia, the sig­nal from the Democratic party is the John Kasich won us this elec­tion? I mean, I can’t even de­scribe how dan­ger­ous that is.”

Let’s set aside the fact that AOC is said to be the one end­ing the truce here, when that is not the case. Never-Trump Republicans and es­tab­lish­ment de­moc­rats haven’t stopped punch­ing left.

But that aside, this is what I want to see from her right now. Fighting for pol­icy the ma­jor­ity of the coun­try wants is­n’t di­vi­sive. The Left can’t keep play­ing the game of com­pro­mis­ing with the right, when mil­lions of lives hang in the bal­ance.
