AOC calls Nancy Pelosi outright disrespectful for singling out women of color

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued her war of words with Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night, calling the House speaker “outright disrespectful” for criticizing women of color.

The Bronx Democrat was reacting to Pelosi’s repeated attempts at reining in some of the more left-wing members of her caucus and chastising the freshman reps for tweeting too much.

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post.

“But the persistent singling out — it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful — the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

Earlier in the week, Pelosi mocked her and freshman progressive colleagues Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley for their Twitter-based influence.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi told the New York Times in a story published Sunday. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

2. Iam not a democrat but Iam a little appalled at the way the party leadership treats minority members

The democratic congress is far from even in terms of racial, gender and sexual orientation makeup. The black members feel so alienated that they had to form their own caucus group because the party doesnt take them seriously unless your mixed race who can talk "white" like them.

People like Ocasio , Bernie Sanders and others are trying to "walk the walk" instead of just placating to their party voters.
