Black Dems blast Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Chief of Staff for playing the race card


Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday, a day after she accused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of attacking “women of color.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Pelosi of “the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color” on Wednesday, after Pelosi told the New York Times over the weekend that Ocasio-Cortez and her first-term left-wing allies — the “Squad” —  were politically irrelevant.

The week before, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, compared moderate Democrats to segregationists, saying that they were “hell bent” on harming “black and brown” people because they voted for humanitarian spending at the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Thursday, Democrats vented their anger at both Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti. Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO), a member of the CBC, ripped Ocasio-Cortez for “using the race card.”

“What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” The Hill quoted Lacy Clay as saying. “I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares.” MORE

  1. The Democrats seem to be developing some division among themselves, something more expected of the Republicans.

    I wonder if the Republicans are adept enough to take advantage of this the way the Democrats have been over Republican divisions or if they will just let the opportunity pass?

  2. The race card is sacred ground for blacks. The arabs should’ve known better than start a turf war.

  3. Nancy is already having medical lapses just as Hillary did, this should put her in a full health emergency with any luck.
    It’s past time the ignorant hag was trussed up, medicated and placed under supervised care in some rest home.

  4. I’ve always suspected that Democrats were capable of wielding the race card from the bottom of the deck.

    Thanks for the confirmation. 😛

    Gin: given Pelosi’s love of segregation, or so I hear, and California’s talk of secession, maybe she should convalesce at an old civil war veterans hospital.

  5. Heh heh … who’s more pitiful?

    People of “color” are the majority in this world – yet still the whiniest.
    Why is that?

    Why have people of “color” never reached beyond the mud hut?
    Why are they content with slavery, oppression, and animism?
    Each group (!) has sold its “color”-ed brethren into slavery to members of the other groups, at one time or another! But, of course, since they had no written language, they are ignorant of the facts.

    Now they’re scrabbling over the crumbs that fall off whitey’s table!
    Proud, indeed!

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. They once spoke as one unified group. Under the constant pressure of our president they are beginning to fray at the seams. Can a demoncrat civil war give the country hope?
    I encourage them to fight to the last.

  7. The CBC is mad that a hispo is using the race card they think is only in their name.

    They want BofA to send them an e-mail alert every time an unauthorized charge is made.

  8. This ongoing infighting within the Congressional Democrats reminds me of a disemboweled hyena snapping at it’s own entrails.

    It’s offal I tells ya!

  9. She did not know that calling a democrat a Racist was a No-No and that the CBC was the ONLY Congressional body that could play the race card
