Extreme leftist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has slammed the Party’s leadership for not being radical enough, before Joe Biden has even inched anywhere near the White House.
Fox News reports that AOC is less preoccupied with the presidency, and more with the fact that the so called ‘blue wave’ never materialised, stating that the Party “relied too heavily on outdated Democratic National Committee campaign tactics.”
The congresswoman complained that too many establishment Democrats are still not embracing radical ideas like defunding the police and the so called ‘Green New Deal’.
Labelling moderate Democrats “sitting ducks”, AOC said that “Our party isn’t even online, not in a real way that exhibits competence. And so, yeah, they were vulnerable to these messages, because they weren’t even on the mediums where these messages were most potent.”
“There’s a reason Barack Obama built an entire national campaign apparatus outside of the Democratic National Committee,” she continued, presumably referring to Obama’s infamous ‘Organizing for Action’ group.
“And there’s a reason that when he didn’t activate or continue that, we lost House majorities. Because the party — in and of itself — does not have the core competencies, and no amount of money is going to fix that,” AOC continued to rant.
OCASIO-CORTEZ: SEES `DEEP DIVISIONS’ AMONG HOUSE DEMOCRATS
Here we go. Joe hasn’t even been inaugurated yet and he’s already not socialist enough

“If you are the DCCC, and you’re hemorrhaging incumbent candidates to progressive insurgents, you would think that you may want to use some of those firms. But instead, we banned them. So the DCCC banned every single firm that is the best in the country at digital organizing,” AOC further complained regarding the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
AOC took a shot at Nancy Pelosi and, presumably, Joe Biden, for not standing up against ‘anti-activists’ and falling short of embracing extreme leftists.
“The leadership and elements of the party — frankly, people in some of the most important decision-making positions in the party — are becoming so blinded to this anti-activist sentiment that they are blinding themselves to the very assets that they offer,” AOC said.
“I need my colleagues to understand that we are not the enemy. And that their base is not the enemy. That the Movement for Black Lives is not the enemy, that “Medicare-for-all” is not the enemy. This isn’t even just about winning an argument. It’s that if they keep going after the wrong thing, I mean, they’re just setting up their own obsolescence,” she further proclaimed.
AOC even threatened to quit if Democrats don’t go full Marxist.
“I genuinely don’t know. I don’t even know if I want to be in politics. You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year,” she complained.
“Externally, there’s been a ton of support, but internally, it’s been extremely hostile to anything that even smells progressive,” she added.
This is exactly what President Trump warned about for months when he said that Joe Biden would be wide open to being completely co-opted by ‘the militant left’ within his party:
The process of ousting Biden, either within his first term, or after the first four years, and elevating Kamala Harris to the Presidency has already begun before the election is even officially over.
