We constantly hear just how brave Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in facing off against those vile, evil, sexist Republicans in Congress. The press cannot help but detail every single conflict she manufactures with the GOP politicians and conservative media.

However her warrior-like image is also affecting some that may come as a surprise. It is not just crusty Republicans who tremble at the thought of AOC reprisals in social media.

By the looks of things journalists who exaggerate the import of Tweets have spooked some of the members of her own party.

According to Politico, the concern is AOC is focused too much on a pure, extreme-left agenda, and will only back candidates and legislation that fits her world view. When she is met with protocol resistance she lashes out on social media.

The concerns are not unwarranted. She does have a — let’s call it “impetuous” — streak on such matters.

Her devotees, of course, lap up these cream bowls of pithy nonsense, giving her the appearance of political influence.

Yes, her repeating a tired meme is a sterling example of the apex of leadership.

Okay, we’ll give you that one!

Validity exists here. In the Politico piece, they mention where Alexandria is maybe flexing muscles she has yet to fully develop.

Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress. Rank and file are peeved that thereโ€™s a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesnโ€™t deserve.

 

There was a lone voice in the wilderness of fawns, but that was easily shouted down..

When they all jump on the crazy train they fail to note what the ultimate destination will be.
