Democrats are getting more extreme every day.
Along with that increased extremism comes more dangerous anti-Trump rhetoric.
And a new Democrat leader just crossed the line and announced a plan that would destroy President Trump’s life.
Republicans were shocked when Rep. Maxine Waters demanded her supporters to harass Trump administration officials in public.
Nobody expected a Democrat to go that far, yet Waters has largely stood by her comments.
And while Rep. Waters did provide just a little bit more proof of how dangerous Democrat rhetoric is, a new Democrat leader took things farther.
Democratic congressional candidate from New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to CNN to explain her plan to abolish Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).
She called it “common sense” during a Thursday morning interview.
While this may not be surprising for a fringe candidate, Cortez is basically already in Congress, nominated for a seat that has virtually zero chance of going to a Republican. And she’s not some crazy fluke who is expected to be a one term politician; she ran a campaign that defeated the 4th ranking member of Congress, Congressman Joe Crowley.
In response to Crowley’s defeat, Trump took to Twitter to attack him for the unexpected upset.
Wow! Big Trump Hater Congressman Joe Crowley, who many expected was going to take Nancy Pelosi’s place, just LOST his primary election. In other words, he’s out! That is a big one that nobody saw happening. Perhaps he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!

But even with Crowley being one of the most vocal anti-Trump voices in Congress, he is nowhere near extreme compared to the views of his opponent who defeated him. Cortez is like Bernie Sanders, but farther left.
She was backed by the Democratic Socialists of America, who were her biggest supporters during the election.
Cortez was pushing for free schooling, guaranteed housing, and radical gun control, among other left-wing topics.
Cortez felt that because ICE was not formed until 2003, it is not necessary to continue operating.
While there are some that make that argument in good faith, but who are largely mistaken on the importance of ICE, Cortez makes the argument out of convenience.
The soon-to-be Congresswomen doesn’t actually believe in border enforcement at all.
She uses the argument for the abolishment of ICE because she knows it is the best argument she can make for abolishing the agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws that she disagrees with.
This is a long-held tactic by the Democrats. They use the most sympathetic argument on an issue to reach an end that would not be supported by much of the population on its own.
There was perhaps no better example of this in action than the Democrats’ reaction to children being separated at the border.
They freaked out, harassed Trump officials, protested in the streets, and then got what they wanted when Trump ended the policy of childhood border separations.
But as soon as they got what they wanted, they began uses coded terms to publicly call for open borders.
They then came out opposed to family detentions at the border, meaning that those who cross the border as a family shouldn’t be punished in any way.
Many of the people protesting still believe they are fighting childhood separations, when in reality they are supporting the far-left’s open borders agenda.
The left truly will never be happy until our borders are wide-open for anyone who wants to enter.
Do you support President Trump’s border security plan?
