Answering a question about the difficulties faced by the faction management in the Chamber, which challenges every step of the AOC and other similar ones – the liberals selected in the last few cycles that are deeply skeptical about the creation of the party – Pelosi said this: "Although there are people who have a large number of followers on Twitter, it is important that we have a large number of votes on the floor of the Chamber."
Now Pelosi did not mention the AOC by name. But you must be a true mannequin not to understand who she was talking about. Ocasio Cortez has 3.9 million followers of Twitter
to date, most of the members of the house ̵
1; including Pelosi ( 2.4 million Followers
). AOS, an active Twitter user, often uses a social media site to name what she considers to be in the Democratic Party's injustice or to abandon media stories about her.
is not a separate event. In February, she was asked about the Green New Deal, a wide-ranging legislative proposal, according to which Ocacio-Cortez closely cooperates with the goals of addressing climate change. "This will be one of several or perhaps many of the proposals that we receive," Pelosi said disrespectfully. "A green dream, or whatever they call, nobody knows what it is, but they are for that, are not you?"
If you think that Pelosi's comments about AOS are accidental and do not mean sending a very clear AOC message, you do not know much about Pelosi. What message does she send? These: Look, I am a liberal liberal longer than you were on earth. But not every democrat represents districts like us. And we must understand that they are guided by another set of political realities. The most important thing we do is not ideological points. It is adopted by law as a single meeting – to show all Americans that we are doing work, not just playing guerrilla games.
Pelosi's comments come against the backdrop of a wider confrontation between the party institution and the newly-formed liberal wing. The most important frontier of this struggle is the decision of the Campaign for the Democratic Congress, the unit of the party, to ban the provision of any business (especially money) to consultants who work for candidates who hold their primary posts. The goal is simple: the threat of loss of business will save the leading consultants from the main contenders. In theory, this will mean fewer primary applicants. What institutions are the Democrats, led by the Chairman of the DCCP, Cherie Bustos, believe that it is very good.
AOS, which itself displaced the nominee to claim its place in 2018, took on the protest
on Twitter. She called the policy "extremely inseparable and harmful to the party," and recommended that small dollar donors "stop" on contributing to the DCCC and instead focus on providing vulnerable people on the ground. In some sense, the Democratic Party is a natural result of the conquest of the majority. The more places you control, the greater the likelihood that you have people from the whole ideological spectrum – each of which wants their path to be . The struggle is taking place at the Democratic Party at the moment, as activists and candidates are guided by the post-Obama and post-Clinton landscapes. At the presidential level, you have Joe Biden, a former vice president as a ur-institution figure, and Berny Sanders – and a number of other candidates – offer a more liberal, outsider perspective.
Pelosi, on his part, is, in fact, when it comes to the political realities facing the party and the challenges of the liberals to move the center of gravity further to the left. "As I say to my own district:" You go out and choose 218 people, like San Francisco, then we can talk, "she told USA Today.
