Howdy, y’all!Yes it is once again time for our end of week comic relief known as “Stuck on Stupid Saturday.” Now, for those of us who are serious college basketball fans, this is the time of year we affectionately call “March Madness.” But, there is a clear and present madness playing out in Washington, DC. Yes, there can be no denial, this week’s Old School Patriot Stuck on Stupid recognition goes to the young freshmen Democrat Members of Congress I have dubbed, The Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.” Uh huh, these four dubious young ladies, Alexandria “da Boss” Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley — in just two and a half months — have made quite the splash . . . but for the wrong reasons.
As reported by Townhall:
“Well, if you thought there would be a day where the far left wing of the House Democratic caucus would quiet down a bit, given their anti-Semitism issues, you’d be wrong. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sent a fundraising email last night suggesting that AIPAC was coming after her and that the U.S.-Israeli relationship should be severed. No, I’m not kidding. This is insanity. AOC has been one of the few defenders [which includes Louis Farrakhan] of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who once again was accused of anti-Semitism for suggesting those who support Israel are exhibiting dual loyalty. The latter is a common anti-Semitic smear. Omar has also peddled the talking point about Jewish money and influence with her “all about the Benjamins” tweet.
In 2012, she [Omar] said that Israel had hypnotized the world. She’s run the gauntlet on this front. The recent dual loyalty fiasco has given her party leadership heartburn, exposing its fractured points with this resolution that condemns anti-Semitism, which has been watered down because…apparently, there are a lot of Democrats who don’t think this is an issue. They’re just angry that their side is being pilloried for peddling bigotry when they wanted the entire focus to be on Trump and his phantom prejudices. So, after days of anti-Semitic theater, AOC decided to blast this fundraising email (via NTK Network):
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel while the House debated condemning all forms of hate speech, including anti-Semitism, on Thursday. The House of Representatives was debating condemning anti-Semitism on Thursday because of anti-Semitic comments made by Ocasio-Cortez’s friend and fellow member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), which were directed at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). “It’s official — AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” the email said. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have times dated to questions out foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them.”
The email then asked for people to contribute to help “keep up the fight against lobbying and special interests of all forms in Washington.” The email then appeared to call for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel. “In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status,” the email said. “We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry.”
As for this faux resolution that said everybody is bad, what a joke! But, these loud voices have, frankly, made Nancy Pelosi cower to their insidious demands. Yes, these four young Marxist/Islamist Princesses have completely thrown the party of the jackass on its arse.
Rep, Tlaib, who is facing FEC violation allegations, ranted that by the end of this month she will introduce articles of impeachment on President Trump. Well, that cat is outta the bag.
Not to be outdone, Rep. Pressley of Massachusetts, brought to the floor a bill to lower the voting age to 16. Uh huh, sweet 16. Now, I do not know about y’all, but at the tender age of 16, I was focused on my studies, football, track, and well, girls . . . not to mention my part-time job. I was not focused on politics, then again, we did not have social media nor teachers who were endeavoring to indoctrinate us.
These four are completely dominating the information cycle and the direction of what was once the Democrat Party, now it is the Socialist Party. Rep. Omar has now turned her sights on Barack Obama. Bold. However, the excuses for Omar are laughable, one stating that she comes from a different culture. Nancy Pelosi made comments alluding to Omar’s inability to understand the language, words, that she is using. Hey y’all, I call total bovine excrement. Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley all know what they are doing. And, it appears that Nancy Pelosi does not mind being on the cover of Rolling Stone with the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse. After all, we only have 12 years until the world ends, so we should stop having children.
Do not be deceived, there are those out there cheering these four on, and they are indeed a special kind of stupid. But what is truly perplexing is that these four are not the ones who enabled Nancy Pelosi to once again be the Speaker of the House. But, doggone, they are going to make sure that she is not Speaker after 2020. When was the last time you heard about any of those “moderate” Democrats who won in GOP congressional districts?
I must say, I do admire these four young women for their abject boldness. I truly admire them for that. The progressive socialist left will fight vehemently even in knowing what they are fighting for is dumb. Republicans can have all the right ideals, principles, policies, and perspectives . . . but they lack courage, as a whole.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come to Washington, DC, and even when displaying utter ignorance at times — a true socialist quality — she is relentless. She gets support, but this is what the progressive socialist left has always wanted. Ilhan Omar is a Somali refugee, saved by the benevolence of these United States of America. Now she is turning her hatred upon this very country, and our ally.
They are telling us who they are, and that they do not play by the established rules. The GOP needs Four Horsemen, or Women, who will take the ideological field of battle and finally, fight back against the “Stuck on Stupid crowd.”
I am very sure that this will not be the last time these four receive this distinction. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, congratulations, you are the recipients of this week’s “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” award.
