Her To Get Death Threats

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/11/2019 7:26:16 PM

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) walked back her suggestion that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was targeting her because Pelosi was racist and instead appeared to suggest that Pelosi was targeting her because Pelosi wants her to get "death threats." (Video) "It's singling out four individuals, and knowing the media environment that we're operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention," Ocasio-Cortez told CNN's Manu Raju. "I think it's just worth asking why."WATCH:

To be honest, I have never gotten a death threat, but one would presume the first action upon receiving a death threat is to look in the mirror and carefully reconsider the public statements one has made that might upset people... AOC doesn't even have to use her memory, because she puts her most inane comments on social media. That said, why hasn't Pelosi rescinded all committee appointments for all four of these disgruntled idiots?

When someone such as the Four Fools constantly trash others what do you expect? The charge racism and slur racist are so over and inappropriately used that they have become meaningless. When you are dishing it out you need to get used to incoming. If you can't take the heat go back to water downing drinks.

I hope Pelosi gets fed up and really unleashes her wrath against the four angry bigmouths. They won't know what hit them. These self appointed "experts" in all areas practically had their seats handed to them by the morons who populate their districts. Is it possible that we really have 431 other congresspersons? Except for a few other obnoxious idiots (i.e. Nadler, Swawell) the others are pretty quiet.

AOC may just have jumped the shark on this statement. Pelosi might be a thoroughly liberal democrat, but one thing for sure is, she has never put any of her members into danger that I am aware of. To accuse her of this is just ridiculous. I am actually starting to feel like I need to support Pelosi in her fight to deal with these stupid knuckleheads. I know she has brought on some of it herself, but with regards to these morons, she has actually bent over backwards. I notice that Omar is letting AOC slide out on the branch all by herself. Not very loyal, our racist spewing little member of congress from MN

Meghan McCain was the only host to ask Harris about her stance on decriminalizing illegal immigration, while the other hosts focused heavily on race-related questions.

Boris Johnson, the United Kingdom's probable next prime minister, will likely end four decades of sending career diplomats to be the ambassador to Washington. Doing so will break the long shadow of a scandal that inspired a Hollywood tale of romance and betrayal. The Trumpian populist could bolster an already warm relationship with President Trump by picking an envoy unlike the ousted ambassador Kim Darroch, who is packing his bags after leaks showed he privately disparaged Trump. But the move would be a historical break. The last noncareer ambassador arrived in Washington in 1977 and left two years later after fathering a love child.

While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record.
