Nancy Pelosi Smacks Down AOC and Company Over ‘No’ Votes on Border Funding

Nancy Pelosi Smacks Down AOC and Company Over ‘No’ Votes on Border Funding

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world”

Nancy Pelosi downplayed the importance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her far left cohorts after they voted ‘no’ on humanitarian aid for the border, once again highlighting the struggle among old school Democrats and the new left.

Sam Dorman reports at FOX News:

Pelosi on AOC, Omar, others: ‘These people have their public whatever and their Twitter world’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., again dismissed freshman like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., downplaying the amount of power they had amid a flurry of attention the media gave them.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said of Reps.Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

Her comments came during a New York Times interview, published on Saturday after those four voted against a Republican measure funding humanitarian assistance at the border — something Pelosi eventually backed amid reports of poor conditions at migrant holding facilities.

Pelosi followed her Twitter comments, saying “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

AOC has painted herself into a corner. She couldn’t vote to fund something she has spent weeks calling concentration camps.

FOX News continues:

Members in that group have been pushing the party to the left on a number of major issues, including immigration. As Congress was weighing whether to pass that multi-billion dollar spending package, each of the four signed onto a statement accusing immigration enforcement of “killing” children.

“These radicalized, criminal agencies are destroying families and killing innocent children,” the statement read. The freshman lawmakers argued that it was “unconsionable” to provide additional funding for both Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as Customs and Border Protection.

Following Pelosi’s comments, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter:

Some conservatives were impressed with Pelosi for standing up to the mean girls.

If you think it’s good now, wait until this struggle starts affecting the 2020 Democrat primary.

This wasn’t a mic drop, anvil or bomb. It’s a stumbling out of touch response from a politician who hasn’t grasped the diminished power she has. I’m unimpressed with any “conservative” that is impressed with Pelosi and her grasp of the situation she finds herself in.

    Pelosi’s daughter knows of her diminished power.

    Just look how her SDNY Lawyer daughter was “tipping” ol’ Mom off yesterday.

    “When Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is out there signaling for her mother on this immediately, you know this is bad.”

    Luongo: Epstein’s Arrest Tells Me Trump Is Now Out For Blood

      Sorry, meant to also include some of this form the above source.

      “When Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is out there signaling for her mother on this immediately, you know this is bad.

      Pelosi doesn’t roll over for nothing folks. Think what you want about her but she’s a pitbull. And she rolled over on border wall funding last week.

      This Epstein arrest is a testament to what happens when the pendulum swings too far in one direction. Where despicable people get away with the most heinous acts simply because they are connected in a web of corruption and venality.”

Pelosi’s mention of social media was not her main point. He main point was about the way politics requires persuasion. She pointed out that for all the noise on social media, the idiot barmaid and her friends don’t have any influence with their colleagues in congress.

So how much farther left are they actually pushing the party if no one pays attention to their positions? The party is definitely going full-out moonbat but the barmaid and her friends are more of a symptom than a cause of that.

    That´s because that noise on Twitter is nothing but astroturfing. Twitter bots and sock puppets accounts do not reflect real support.

If nothing else, it’s one less partisan claim to argue ad infinitum.

Pelosi isn’t wrong — for once.

AOC and her ilk live in an alternate reality called “social media.” It’s past the point of dystopia and now stands in for all the insane asylums we unwisely closed down decades ago.

Typical liberal I voted (for or against ) it before I voted ( for or against) it

AOC took it a step further and harassed companies that provided services and products to the centers. She thinks that she can abort the baby and keep her, too. Maybe, but Pelosi disagrees.

Within the last year, I took a look at the numbers and demographics of social media and concluded that MSM attention given to the political opinions and trends expressed on social media, was greatly disproportionate to public opinion at large. And those who feed exclusively on social media, are deluded.

It’s eye-opening to compare the demographics of the US, with FB and Twitter demographics, especially if you compare the numbers of accounts on FB and Twitter where the members regularly post, with accounts where members never post.

I remember one old-style music-oriented forum (UBB/php-based) I frequented, where the owner tried to sell it for a tidy sum, boasting of 20,000 members. In truth, those were registered users, but fewer than 500 had ever posted more than 1 message, and fewer than 200 read and posted regularly to the forum. In reality, only 1% of the total membership were active readers and posters. I would not be the least bit surprised to find similar active use statistics for FB and Twitter especially compared to the total population and demographics of the citizenry.

AOC and her ilk are like childhood phantoms in the bedroom closet. They disappear when we cease to give them any mind.

    I wonder how the 100,044 people who voted for AOC and the 691,715 constituents feel about her taking queues from 4.7M Twitter followers of which at least 4M aren’t even in NY14?

Pelosi runs the House. In the House, she commands the votes of the vast majority of the caucus, and doesn’t need to be beholden to AOC, Tlaib and Omar when the caucus rejects their outcomes, as with the border bill.

However… Twitter runs the party. Twitter runs the presidential primary. Twitter is dominating Democratic thought and Democratic actions on the streets, on television, in the media and on the Internet generally. So let us not lose perspective.

Needless to say, the dunce has not taken this well.

The likes of pelosi created this treasonous army by destroying our schools.

Hopefully, she gets eaten by them. Alive.

aoc is all about the big lie. No matter what she repeats it for her zombie followers.
Communists have always been about the big lie.

This is an indication that the civil war between those, in the Democrat Party, who want to continue the plan to control this country and those who are working to destroy it is heating up. The Pelosi tried to reason with the New Turks and that failed. Now the Old Guard is publicly undermining the Turks, something unheard of in the Democrat Party. If this fail to rein in the likes of AOC and she and the Turks continue to cause the Establishment Dems too much trouble, well Dems have been known to go top jail, for various reasons and accidents do happen. The Dems have been working for the last 100 years to gain total control of this country and the New Turks are putting all of that effort in jeopardy.

What does one expect from the American branch of the British Labour Party? Jew haters and Marxist’s finally have their own political party.
