The Crazy Politics Of The Squad Are Backfiring On The Democrats – And They Know It

Millions of Americans have known for years now that the politics of people like AOC and Ilhan Omar are crazy and way too far left.

Democrats are just beginning to figure this out now, and they know it’s hurting them too.

Other factors like an abrupt admissions change to a prestigious high school were at play (all politics is local).

But the most liberal city in the most liberal state decided that liberal activists had gone too far.

It’s great that Democrats are finally coming around to reality.

Of course, it’s too late for this to do the Democrats any good.
