AOC’s List Sees Her Chasing Down Something That Doesn’t Exist: “Moderate” DemocratsThe former Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore-dubbed “Pompous Little Twit” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s list of “moderate”  Democrats she threatens to unseat in 2020 elections is not only laughable, but shows how she’s out there chasing down phantoms and fantasies.

A “moderate” Democrat is as difficult to find as a “moral” Democrat.

AOC has publicly vowed that she would help progressive activists unseat some 26 “moderate” Democrats in their districts in 2020 elections after they sided with Republicans on a legislative amendment Wednesday, in a bill that would expand federal background checks for gun purchases.


“It was a key provision requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns that saw 26 moderate Democrats siding with Republicans. (Fox News, March 1, 2019)

AOC’s spokesman Corbin Trent told the Washington Post that she made the “list” comment during a closed-door meeting:

“She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” Trent said, referring to ICE. (Fox)

“Ocasio-Cortez has vehemently denounced ICE since bursting onto the political stage—but has also raised concerns among fellow Democrats that she’s picking fights with her own party.”

Chattering classes would see Democrats siding with Republicans as sheer politics.  AOC spotted it as another opportunity for advancing the theory that’s she’s “boss”.

We don’t know whether Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver is one of AOC’s targeted ‘moderate’ Dems,  but we do know that he is naive and likely believes in the tooth fairy.

“I’m sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there’s almost an outstanding rule: Don’t attack your own people,” Rep. Cleaver told Politico earlier this year. “We just don’t need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.”

Sniping in the Democrat Caucus is routine and bound to get worse as presidential hopefuls move closer to DNC primaries.

We’re now seeing how big names in the Democrat Party are not trying to distance themselves from AOC’s corrosive Green New Deal but are fully and openly supporting it.

“Her star status and outsize influence bringing Democrats on board with controversial policies like the Green New Deal have rankled some long-time members. But the freshman congresswoman appears unfazed by the pushback, often hitting back at her critics on Twitter. (Fox)

Shouldn’t someone be asking, “What pushback”?

Democrat politicians are also trying to con the voting public that they are reasonable “progressives” rather than radicals like AOC and her main mentor sworn Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.

Progressives and Socialists in the Democrat Party are one and the same.

Wednesday could be the last time so-called Democrat moderates broke ranks with their party to vote with Republicans.

Aside from rare moderate Democrats gone independent like Joe Lieberman, slapped down by AOC’s “Who dis party”,  moderate Democrats don’t exist, even though Patrick Moore’s “Pompous Little Twit” is still out there chasing them.

Moderate and moral Democrats live in the same fantasy as AOC’s unicorn rainbow farts.
