Democrat Rep Shreds Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Ignorance Beyond Belief’

Rep. William Lacy Clay leveled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ‘squad’ for resorting to using the race card in their feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Clay (D-MO), who has served in the House for nearly two decades, slammed her comments as “inappropriate” and “weak.” He also noted making such arguments shows a certain level of ignorance for this nation’s past when it comes to real racism.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said. “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.”

Clay’s bold comments show a Democrat party further fracturing due to Ocasio-Cortez’ willingness to attack everyone in her party with petulant temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her way.

Squad v. Pelosi

It’s become quite clear that establishment Democrats are tired of AOC’s games.

Pelosi initially mocked Ocasio-Cortez and her squad – consisting of Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) – for voting against a bipartisan border funding bill and being unable to get anyone to join them in their resistance vote.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following,” she quipped.

Ocasio-Cortez responded, not with a coherent rebuttal but rather, by playing the race card.

“It was just outright disrespectful,” the New York Democrat fumed. “The explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

Clay Unleashed

Clay wasn’t through with his insults for Ocasio-Cortez and her freshman colleagues.

“Their ignorance is beyond belief,” he said.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi,” Clay added.

Now, we’re all with you on the ignorance part, but unfair might be a stretch. After all, outrage over a Democrat using the race card rings a bit hollow since every member of the party has resorted to that argument against Republicans in the past. You’re really just upset because she used it against one of your own.

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members. They will have to learn to be effective legislators,” he said. “It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.”

If the GOP were smart, they’d cut a clip of those comments and use them going forward every time the left pulls out false claims of racism.

More Venom for AOC

It should be noted that Clay’s public shaming of AOC could be the result of her supporting his opponent in the last primary.

He has also called her out in the past for being loud-mouthed and ignorant when it came to criticizing other Democrats, referring to her as “petty” and lacking in maturity and political acumen.

That pettiness, juvenile mindset, and lack of acumen period, let alone political acumen, is going to continue to tear apart the Democrat party. Trump’s re-election chances look better and better each day, and one of the biggest reasons is going to be this New Yorker’s willingness to tear down everybody who doesn’t agree with her.

She’s the best thing that could have happened to the Trump 2020 team.

  • AOC can dish it out, but she can't take it. She's a little liberal baby who should be gone after the next election, along with her 3 "cry baby" girlfriends!

  • What conservative in their right mind would want to break up the Fraud Squad? Let the Democrats rally around these four, please. Cement the party to the message and let the country know what the message is.

  • The woman answered a casting call. That is how she was selected to run. She has never and does not live in the district she represents. The people who live in that district have had enough of her too.

    Then there are the 21 FEC violations filed against her, one being money laundering in addition to her tweeting out times, dates and locations of ICE raids which at least for her is illegal.

    The woman is beyond ignorant, she is stupid and you just can't fix stupid.

  • How does it feel. IGNORANCE beyond belief. The SAME can be said for Democrats WHO say it about Republicans and our PRESIDENT TRUMP!!! Why is it that many in congress want to rule and make a ONE WORLD ORDER. PEOPLE WAKE UP VOTE FOR FREEDOM AND NOT FOR DEEP STATE TYRANNIE. PUT THESE DEEP STATE CRIMINALS AND TRATORS IN GITMO OR JAIL FOR LIFE WITH OUT PAROLE!!!!! WE THE PEOPLE ARE FEDUP WITH DEM RATS AGENDAS!!!!!! STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION OVER THE BORDERS WITH STRONG LAWS !! DO YOUR JOBS, STOP KICKING THIS DOWN THE ROAD LIKE ALL OF CONGRESS HAS BEEN DOING FOR 5 DECADES OR MORE!!!

  • Every time cortez or whatever’s her name opens her pie hole she creates another Trump supporter.

  • She doesn't understand why she is so stupid! She believes her own lies. All 4 of those females need to be removed from office ASAP!!

  • sick of her....impeach her or put a muzzle on her....take her off committees & assign her no more......when she speaks...leave the room....

  • Me, watching SanFranNan battle it out with Accidentally Occasionally Coherent.
