(National Sentinel) Far Left: A group of extreme-Left women newly elected to the House will likely “overplay their hand” in trying to push Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and her party too far, a Republican Party representative in California told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Tuesday.
The women — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.); Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.); Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.); and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), whom Ocasio-Cortez has dubbed “Squad” on social media — are going to make it extremely difficult for Pelosi, D-Calif., “to move forward” on the party’s agenda in the House, said attorney Harmeet Dhillon, founder of the Dhillon Law Group Inc. and the Republican National Committeewoman for California, said.
“These women may as well be the four horsewomen of the apocalypse for the Democratic Party, if you ask me,” said Ingraham, “because they represent some of the most radical views in Congress: free college for all, free health care for all, the abolishment of ICE, and a Green New Deal where the U.S. depends entirely on renewable energy.”
The “Democratic Socialist” women include the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts, the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, and the youngest woman elected to Congress, Lifezette noted.
On her first day in D.C., Ocasio-Cortez joined a group of climate change protesters who camped out in Pelosi’s office — setting herself up as the chief Left-wing loon for the incoming session that will see Democrats take power in the lower chamber.
Dhillon told Ingraham that Ocasio-Cortez’s political stunt was “a little wacky and alarming, I’m sure particularly for Nancy Pelosi and other senior leaders of the Democratic Party, because they’ve won the election already.”
“Now is the time for them to coalesce if they want to get everything done. But there’s already been signs beyond what we saw in the spectacle in your video today, Laura, that they want to change the rules to increase the threshold in the Democratic Caucus to 218,” Dhillon said. “In other words, they want there to be virtual unanimity among the caucus.
“And so … the Democrats — they’re overplaying their hand … And I think we’re in for a lot of fissures and a lot of discord within as well, which is going to undermine their ability to move forward with their agenda,” Dhillon said.
The progressive Left is to Democrats what the Tea Party movement was to the GOP establishment in 2012. Eventually, Republican factions came together for the most part to govern but that’s because Tea Party Republicans weren’t lunatics like the Socialists of the Democratic Party are.
Dhillon warned that “the same money that got these people elected — the big corporate interests that want to see Democrats controlling the agenda — they’re not going to let those types of radical, far-Left things happen.”
Grab some popcorn. This should be fun.
