Nancy Pelosi Mocks AOC's Wing of Democratic Party, Says Just 'Five People'

April FrancisApr 20, 2019

In a Twitter rant on Tuesday, Moore claimed Pelosi and other top Democratic leaders should step aside and allow new-progressive Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, take the reins.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said socialism is "not the view" of the Democratic Party.

"You have these wings- AOC, and her group on one side", Stahl said.

Pelosi said she used to support some of the same aggressive agenda items, such as single-payer healthcare, but argued Democrats can not win if they lead with an activist message.

That's quite a way to welcome a new generation of mostly progressive women of color entering the Democratic Party who are activating young people, people of color, and working-class voters of all backgrounds. "And you yourself said that you're the only one who can unify everybody".

She introduced the radical Green New Deal resolution and has joined a newcomers-to-Congress club with two other Democrats elected in the 2018 midterms who also champion controversial positions on everything from U.S./Israel relations to impeaching President Donald Trump; Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

But Pelosi appears to recognize the sway that outspoken progressives, including Reps. Nadler, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said Trump showed "contempt" for the law when he reportedly promised the former head of Customs and Border Protection a pardon if he faced jail for denying immigrants seeking asylum entry into the United States.

Netflix brushes off streaming threats from Apple, Disney
Netflix executives dismissed the second quarter as a blip, saying the company is still on track for its biggest year ever. Profit in the first quarter of 2019 rose to $344 million from $290 million in the first quarter of a year ago .

"For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it", Omar said at CAIR in California last March.

Following the criticism, Pelosi issued a follow-up statement on Sunday calling for increased security for Omar and demanding Trump stop attacking the lawmaker.

"Unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country".

"But those are districts that are solidly Democratic".

The Donald called the interview a "puff piece" and added: "Such a "puff piece" on Nancy Pelosi by @60Minutes, yet her leadership has passed no meaningful Legislation".

But the movement faces resistance from the party's center and right factions, which believe a significant move left would not win votes and would be a major electoral mistake that would keep the Republican Party in the presidency and hand it control of both chambers of Congress.
