As it turns out, maybe the Democrats aren’t as ready for socialism as we thought.
Oh, make no mistake, they want to get us there eventually, but if there’s anything that this lockdown has proven, it’s that TRUE American patriotism is alive and well. The Dems will have to wait a few more years before going all-in on their Marxist master plan.
While they want MORE “socialistic” programs in the US, they may want to take a step back, seeing how much of a push back their “defund the police” is getting and how many centrist voters they’re losing because of it.
At least for now.
Now, we don’t know this for sure, but when Congress’ most famous socialist gets left off of an important list of endorsements, that’s a pretty good indication that things aren’t as copacetic in the Democratic Party as you may think.
Former President—and the Left’s chosen messiah—Barack Obama released a list of DNC candidates he’s endorsing for 2020…and he somehow left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez off the list.
You would think that if Obama is endorsing more than 100 Democratic candidates running for office this November, he wouldn’t make the mistake of leaving AOC off that list…
She’s one of the most high-profile Democrats and Congressmembers running for re-election, so saying that he “missed her” just doesn’t make sense.
Obama’s Snubbing Of The Socialist Golden Child
This is a DELIBERATE snubbing of AOC, and it should be telling to both sides of the aisle.
There are 118 Democrats in all on the list, with candidates at the federal and state legislative levels, hailing from at least 17 different states—including New York, the home of AOC.
Who was on the list?
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper for U.S. Senate, former Obama aide and incumbent Rep. Andy Kim, incumbent members of Congress Katie Porter, Max Rose, Antonio Delgado, and Joe Cunningham, among others—and it’s important to know that three of the names on this list come from the New York tri-state area, so, it’s not like he was ignoring the whole region.
In his statement, Obama said, “I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly-qualified Democrats. Together, these candidates will help us redeem our country’s promise by sticking up for working people, restoring fairness and opportunity to our system, and fighting for the good of all Americans — not just those at the top.”
Now, we can talk all day how Obama’s view on what makes a good candidate (“thoughtful, empathetic”) and how those shouldn’t be the TOP qualifiers for a lawmaker…
But that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about Obama conveniently leaving one of the most visible and vocal Democrats in Congress of his list.
There’s always a chance that AOC’s name could be in Obama’s next round of endorsements, as his office said that the former president plans to issue a second wave of endorsements once the primaries have wrapped up.
Don’t Hold Your Breath, AOC
However, Obama endorsed first-time candidate and former middle school principal Jamaal Bowman during a primary run-off with established Dem Rep. Eliot Engle earlier this summer…
He didn’t do the same for AOC during her primary run-off, so her being numbered in the second wave of endorsements may be a long shot.
However, it’s not something that’s too out of the norm for the president…
He did wait till April of THIS year to endorse his former VP, Creepy Joe Biden, as president, even though Joe declared himself a candidate in summer of 2019.
So, she could be a late endorsement if it looks like she’s losing the race for her district…
But AOC shouldn’t hold her breath. She’s somehow rubbed Obama the wrong way, and now she’s no longer sheltered by his umbrella.
Going to be interesting to see what happens in November…
