The Democrat Party is in complete disarray.
Civil war broke out among competing factions.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got triggered by one word that exposed her big weakness.
Democrats bombed out in the Virginia and New Jersey elections.
Both states saw their vote swing about 13 points to the right as Republicans in Virginia swept every statewide race and won control of the House of Delegates while in New Jersey the incumbent governor barely won while the most powerful Democrat in the state Senate lost to a truck driver that spent $153 on his campaign.
Democrats tried to digest the message of the election which seemed obvious to most – which was that the voters in Virginia and New Jersey rejected Joe Biden’s far-left agenda.
Joe Biden opened the borders to nearly two million illegal aliens, Biden’s socialist spending agenda pushed inflation to record levels, Biden refuses to move beyond COVID, issues authoritarian mandate after authoritarian mandate and Democrats support poisoning kids’ minds with racist critical race theory.
Exit polls in Virginia showed Joe Biden with a 43 percent approval rating.
Former Bill Clinton chief strategist James Carville blamed the loss in Virginia on Democrats’ obsession with woke identity politics.
“[W]hat went wrong is just stupid wokeness,” Carville told PBS. “Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Wash. I mean, this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools. I mean that — people see that.”
Among those fighting was New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez is the leader of the socialist wing of the Democrat Party that believes America is a systemically racist country and that the left needs to evaluate every issue through race and identity politics.
The New York congresswoman falsely claimed that if Democrats abandoned woke policies such as “defund the police” and critical race theory the party’s base would stay home on Election Day.
“One dangerous aspect of thinking there’s a ‘woke problem’ is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights. Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely,ensuring losses,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Ocasio-Cortez baselessly claimed that being “woke” was just another word for civil rights and cast Democrats’ support for Black Lives Matter, anti-police crusaders and a federal takeover of elections in the tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr.
“‘Woke’ is a term pundits are now using as a derogatory euphemism for civil rights & justice. Making up a ‘woke’ problem results in putting civil & voting rights on the backburner. In a year state legislatures are planning out GOP majorities & voter suppression, that’s dangerous,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ocasio-Cortez is detached from reality.
The Virginia election turned on the issue of education.
Democrats’ slavish devotion to the teachers’ unions caused the party to sit back and watch union bosses shutdown schools for over a year during which time parents saw left-wing activists indoctrinate their children with toxic critical race theory.
Woke politics cost the Democrats dearly in New Jersey and Virginia.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out in desperation attacking Democrats that stated this simple truth because since Joe Biden took office, the socialists in Congress and the administration called the shots.
But if enough Democrats understand that woke ideology is an electoral dead-end, Ocasio-Cortez and her allies will lose sway over the Biden agenda.
