Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday, a day right after she accused Speaker of the Dwelling Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of attacking “women of shade.”
Ocasio-Cortez accused Pelosi of “the explicit singling out of freshly elected females of color” on Wednesday, correct right after Pelosi suggested the New York Moments in excess of the weekend that Ocasio-Cortez and her 1st-phrase remaining-wing allies — the “Squad” — were politically irrelevant.
The seven days ahead of, Ocasio-Cortez’s principal of personnel, Saikat Chakrabarti, in contrast reasonable Democrats to segregationists, stating that they have been “hell bent” on harming “black and brown” folks mostly due to the fact they voted for humanitarian investing at the U.S.-Mexico border.
On Thursday, Democrats vented their anger at equally 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, due to the fact you just cannot get your way and because you are getting pushback you vacation resort to employing the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” The Hill quoted Lacy Clay as declaring. “I could care much less. I could really treatment a lot less. I agree with the Speaker. 4 people, four votes out of 240 men and women, who cares.”
He added: “It shows you how weak their argument is when they have to vacation resort and direct racist accusations toward Speaker Pelosi … it’s extremely disappointing to me.” He also termed Chakrabarti “ignorant” of American record, and explained that the “Justice Democrats” — a remaining-wing group concerned with Ocasio-Cortez that backs important problems towards reasonable, white Democrats — have been “juvenile.”
Other people also attacked Chakrabarti, with at minimal calling for Ocasio-Cortez to fire her longtime aide:
