Americans are just bracing themselves for the day that media (and social media) darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decides to move on to bigger and better things than the measly House of Representatives. Most of the nation was slightly stunned in 2018 when the 20-something bartender from the Bronx won her seat in the House, but since it was a firmly Democrat seat anyway, what’s the difference, right? Wrong.
AOC has become one of those iconic people that can rally people around her. Maybe it’s because she’s saying what other people are too scared to say, or maybe she’s someone that is just so on fire people gather to watch her burn, but either way, it’s hard to look away from. Sadly, the car crash in slow motion that is her idea of government policy and procedure is in very real danger of taking down hundreds of years of hard work in an effort to obtain the free Democratic Republic.
But that’s not slowing down the DNC. It appears that the left is just so livid that former President Donald Trump had the audacity to stand up to whatever the political power structure in Washington D.C. is, that they’re willing to allow an aggressively unhinged narcissist to lead their party hard left, even if it means destroying even the semblance of order and replacing it with unhinged theoreticals.
However, according to a report in MSNBC, if brought to the court of American people’s vote, AOC may not be as popular to support as she is to watch, or at least that’s what MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch predicted when he appeared on “Morning Joe” earlier in the week. The guest predicted that if Democrats don’t move away from the far left and find someone reasonable to run, Republicans are likely to win in a sweep in the 2024 presidential election.
The assertion was, of course, caveated with the limitation that anyone but Trump could win in 2024, because who would allow him to win again? But it was still a concession of massive (and possibly hopeful) proportions.
“If the Republicans ran anybody but Donald Trump, they would win in a landslide,” Deutsch said. “Anybody just right of center, anybody.” The commentator went on to say that he wanted to see several polls for potential 2024 candidates but said he was sure that a candidate like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) “would win by over double digits” in 2024.
The host, Joe Scarborough, agreed with the assessment saying that he had never seen so much unrest in a party as the members of the DNC have right now because of how out of step the policies are with the actual thoughts and feelings of the American people. The MSNBC host and former Republican representative to the House said that the complaints about Democrats have come from “lifelong liberals” and “lifelong progressives,” and despite his belief that he would get “killed on Twitter” for saying it, he believes that doesn’t matter because “Twitter isn’t mainstream America.”
“Joe Biden does not have the hearts and minds of this country,” Deutsch said. “And the other Democrats that we see being paraded forward, the AOC’s of the world, the far-left, are suicide for the Democrats. So the Democrats better get some new faces and the Democrats better figure out that this world lives just right of center or on a good year, just left of center and it’s this socialist kind of pulling all the way to the left is a disaster.”
Are the head honchos at MSNBC correct? Is this the potential landslide that American conservatives have been waiting for? Are progressives like AOC “suicide” for the left? If the consensus is done among middle-class voting Americans who know anything about American and world history, the common-sense answer would be a resounding “yes.”
But who needs common sense when you have rigged voting machines?
