Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is jumping for joy at the prospect of taking over the Democrat Party.
From there she can be one step closer to destroying American with her socialist agenda.
But Obama put the brakes on that plan by saying the one thing she fears above all.
The Democrat Party is at a turning point.
Either they can follow the path of relatively moderate people like Nancy Pelosi.
Or they can go off the deep end by embracing the socialist agenda of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
While Pelosi likely supports many of the radical beliefs of Ocasio-Cortez, she realizes that running on a similar platform nationally would be the death of the party.
And former President Barack Obama understands that fact as well.
Speaking at an Obama Foundation event in Germany, the former President got into a discussion about the state of the Democrat Party.
In the discussion, he seems to take a swipe at politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, who sway so far to the left they aren’t willing to compromise on many issues.
“One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,’” Obama said.
He goes on to explain how that thinking could cause problems in the Party, as the attacks from those on the far-left could affect those on the more mainstream side of the Party.
“And then we start sometimes creating what’s called a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens.”
Obama may be giving the best advice Democrats have gotten in some time.
In their race to the far-left, those who hold more moderate positions, or perhaps more especially, those who simply live in more moderate states and districts, are facing the wrath of voters who don’t support socialist policies.
The 2016 election showed this in action.
Republicans gaining ground in the Senate is likely due to Democrats in middle America states losing elections due to the Democrat Party shifting further left than their voting base.
In Missouri, Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill lost after two terms in office.
Her loss comes after a brutal campaign exposing her for holding far-left views, while campaigning as a moderate.
Undercover videos from Project Veritas further prove that, as they show McCaskill, and her staffers admit that she can’t talk about her far-left beliefs in public.
The same is true for Rep. Jim Bridenstine, who was trying to win the Senate in Tennessee before similar videos exposed him for having public positions, and private positions to keep from voters.
If Democrats don’t listen to Obama’s advice, there will likely be more division in the Party.
When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacks those who don’t support socialism, she is hurting her own Party more than anybody else.
Do you think the Democrat Party is going to implode?
