Mollie Hemingway: Ocasio-Cortez Attacking Party Members Shows Democrat Party Has Fallen

( Fights continue to erupt within the Democratic Party, and Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist suggested on Thursday that the party is more divided than ever.

Hemingway said that far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s staunch opposition to the likes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed that the party is in disarray despite appearing to have won the presidency…technically.

“What’s so interesting about the Democratic Party – they technically control the House of Representatives. They’ve won the presidency, have a shot at winning the Senate and the party is in complete disarray because of this issue that Ocasio-Cortez is talking about,” she said.

“All the enthusiasm for the party comes from that progressive left-wing base but that’s what is costing them seats,” she added.

It’s a conundrum the Democrats appear aware of, too, having nominated “moderate” Joe Biden as their presidential candidate to put a friendly and more relatable face on their extreme left-wing policies. Despite Biden being portrayed as a “moderate,” he is moving ahead with far-left policy initiatives that were championed by his vice-presidential pick, Kamala Harris.

Hemingway referenced how Ocasio-Cortez believes that the Democratic Party needs new leaders, encouraging Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to stop down.

However, Ocasio-Cortez, commonly known as “AOC,” told The Intercept on Thursday that there was also a danger of creating a power vacuum in the Democratic Party that risks being filled by “nefarious forces” in the Democratic Party who are “even more conservative.”

Is there a single person even slightly conservative left in the Democratic Party?

“I do think we need new leadership in the  Democratic Party,” she added. “I think one of the things that I have struggled with, I think that a lot of people struggle with, is the internal dynamics of the House has made it such that there are very little options for succession.”

Ocasio-Cortez speaks as a relative newcomer to politics, entering the last election as a freshman Congresswoman and winning re-election for the first time.

She is one of four members of her “Squad” of far-left members of Congress who are in the process of transforming the Democratic Party into an unashamedly socialist party.

Hemingway reminded viewers of “America’s Newsroom” that Republicans have a good chance of winning back the House in two years, and that Democrats will have a hard time getting the ultra-progressive wing of the party – including AOC – to keep quiet.

“Ocasio-Cortez knows she has some influence here,” she said. “I’m surprised she is not using it more to get a speaker more in line with what she would like but we’ll see how this plays out. Obviously, Nancy Pelosi had a very bad year.”

Yes, she did.
