People on the left are assaulting Republican officials, mailing poison to their offices and worse, as Democrats continually stall on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Yet according to the far left ‘Democratic Socialist’ candidate for Congress from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it is the right which is holding the country hostage.
Is she serious?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Ocasio-Cortez: We Can’t Compromise With ‘Insane People’ on the Right ‘Holding the Country Hostage’
Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a new interview her party couldn’t compromise with the “insane people” on the right holding the country “hostage.”
Asked by Vanity Fair how she intended to balance her desire for rapid, progressive change with the need in Washington to make deals, Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats too often compromise even before getting to the table.
“When you’re dealing with these insane people holding the country hostage on the right, you can’t go in with your end point. You have to go in with a strong position,” she said. “If they’re trying to end Planned Parenthood, I don’t think we go in with, ‘No, let’s keep Planned Parenthood.’ I think we go in with, ‘Let’s expand women’s rights to health care and have it guaranteed in every state.’ I think we can compromise on our tactics and how we get there, but we can’t compromise where we’re going.”
This just goes to show how out of touch the far left continues to be with the rest of the country. They can’t even see how they are perceived by average Americans.
