    Ocasio-Cortez Falsely Claims She Was Discriminated Against On Capitol Hill

    It must be tough being a Democratic Socialist today.

    First, you run out of other people’s money to pay for your new DC apartment.

    Then, everyone you meet–in a city full of liberals, mind you–is a racist and a sexist.

    That’s exactly what happened to Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the last week alone.

    From The Daily Wire:

    Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was only elected a week ago, but she’s already causing a stir in Washington. Her first big appearance was at a climate change protest — at the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who the representative-elect has signaled she isn’t ready to support for her bid to take back the role of House Speaker.

    The nation’s youngest congresswoman has also been sounding the alarm over racism and sexism she suggests she’s already experienced on Capitol Hill.

    “Dem Spouse + Member luncheon were at the same time today. I was sent to spouse event,” she wrote late Wednesday. “Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer.”

    “Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color,” she concluded.

    What a crybaby. Time to grow up, Congresswoman. Stop making excuses and get to work on behalf of your constituents.

    There are a bunch of tweets at the link that give more of the story. Tweets won't post properly. I usually take screenshots and post those, but not this time.

    Keep in mind, this braintrust has made a show of openly opposing Princess Nancy. If it was on the Princess being dissed that would be one thing. But that puts her on the outs with the oldtimers that have some sway on how things work. If she wins the win might help her a little. If she loses she's done for. Even if she sins, though, she'll have to work with the people who have power. They'll still be there. They'll still have power. But they won't be too kind to the people who rob them of a little of it if the person at the top isn't their chosen one.

    And that's just the Pelosi part of it. She's also making enemies of the rank-and-file by accusing them of being sexist and racist. Of COURSE they are! Everybody knows that. They're Democrats, it's expected. But another Democrat is never supposed to mention that fact publicly. So now she's begun alienating people who might otherwise be on her team.

    Not that she needs much help, but I foresee liberals doing what they can to assist her to look as stupid as possible. Then in a couple of years they can put a vegetable up against her and it will look much brighter. (Actually, they could do that now.) And probably win in a primary.

    We'll never have to worry about China attacking us. They're 12 hours ahead, so we'll have plenty of time to shoot down their missiles.
