Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has made a fair amount of news in the 10 days since an election that remains a fiasco on the presidential level, but also sent a loud and clear message to left-wing House Democrats: the American people don’t support your “defund the police” nonsense and defense of so-called “peaceful protests” — and they sure as hell don’t want anything to do with your repackaged Socialism.
As we’ve reported along the way, in the immediate aftermath of the beatdown delivered to House Democrats, in which Republicans have netted at least six seats and might pick up more, “centrist” Democrats lashed out at the far-left faction of their caucus — principally led by AOC and her fellow Squad members. AOC and Rashida Tlaib fired back bigly, blaming the “sitting duck” centrists for the losses.
She mad. This image says it all, as AOC fixes a stone-cold death stare on the back of the head of moderate Democrat West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, who vowed that he will block any “crazy socialist agenda” on Capitol Hill.

On the Saturday after the election, the erstwhile bartender told the New York Times she was not only frustrated with House Democrats but that she might leave politics —in effect, pick up her socialist marbles and go home if she doesn’t get her way.
In addition, AOC has not only been making demands about who she believes should be included in Biden’s cabinet if he ultimately becomes president, but also who should not be — including former Chicago mayor and Obama mini-thug, Rahm Emanuel.
On Thursday, as AOC’s naively-envisioned socialist utopia seemingly continued to crash around her, she was asked by a constituent in a Zoom call why House Democrats were shellacked — a term made famous by Barack Obama after the Democrats suffered a beatdown in the 2014 midterms — by the Republicans.
As luck would have it, as reported by Daily Wire, GOP researcher Tommy Pigot obtained video of the exchange and promptly posted it to Twitter. In the video, our intrepid math wizard apparently believes House Democrats have lost their majority.
The constituent asked: “Why did we lose so many seats, and what needs to be done to get them back next term?” To which Einstein replied:
“So, you know, of course, um, the loss of the House majority is just extraordinarily upsetting to all of us, um, it’s upsetting to all of us who, who are invested in having a Democratic majority so that we can expand health care, so that we can raise wages, so that we can protect working people.
“And it’s also personally very difficult, um, because to lose these people, you know, many of them are my colleagues, and I’m proud to call many of them my friends, and the idea that they may not be returning next term is very, or that they aren’t returning next term, is extremely difficult on both just a personal and a policy and a political level.”

Perhaps AOC’s post-election hangover won’t last. As I wrote in a late-October article titled AOC: Young People Will Vote for Biden Because He’s ‘Receptive to Advocacy, Activism, and Protests’, Ocasio-Cortez predicted during a segment with CNN’s Jake Tapper that young people would vote for Biden, not because he’s “their favorite person,” but because he would, she said in a word, be much easier to manipulate.
What young Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not count on as she was plotting all that “manipulatin'” of Joe was voters rising up en masse and saying “NO” to her socialist agenda.
Math wizard or not, “votes is votes.”
In another example of post-election “harmony,” as reported by my RedState colleague Jeff Charles in an article titled This Is How The Left Is Planning To Destroy Trump If He Leaves Office, President Trump is “currently facing multiple investigations looking into possible fraud in his financial business dealings as a private citizen – both as an individual and through his company.” Among those leading the charge is Rep. Eric “Swally” Swalwell (D-CA) whose embarrassing 2020 presidential campaign crashed and burned before it got off the ground.
Clearly, Democrats “got bitterness,” America.
