SQUAD RULES: AOC Seconds Nomination Of BERNIE For President At The End Of Her Speech–Here’s The 411

Written by Wes Walker on August 19, 2020

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, despite her personal popularity in her party, was given table scraps in the speeches. And she used her short minute to demagogue and nominate… Bolshevik Bernie.

Seeing her back Bernie makes perfect sense. After all, it was as recently as January that Occasional-Cortex groused that only in America would she and Biden even be in the same party. If she had her way, it wouldn’t be long before July 4th was replaced by Communist “May Day” celebrations.

Here she is nominating Breadline Bernie.

Well, that’s a fine “how do you do” isn’t it? Seems like a slap across Old Joe’s tired and confused face, doesn’t it?

Actually, there’s a reason that she did it. And it isn’t the shiv between his ribs that it might seem at first glance.

She’s still committed to pushing her party’s agenda (now that the donkey party has been successfully hijacked by the (un)Democratic Socialists) and if that means backing a ventriloquist dummy until such time as the White House is secured, then so be it.

There were some boring procedural reasons she, or somebody, had to second Bernie’s nomination since he met the threshold number of delegates.

But ask yourself — since we’ve already seen what she is capable of in putting a gun to the head of her own party, would AOC staging a public muntiny against her party have really surprised anyone? Or would it have been more bare-knuckle politics-as-usual?

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out why she did that–she was asked to. She explains in a tweet that the convention rules require it. She wrote, “If you were confused, no worries! Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold. I was asked to 2nd the nom for Sen. Sanders for roll call. I extend my deepest congratulations to @JoeBiden – let’s go win in November.”

Here she is saying the quiet part out loud.

For Democrats, there is no difference between ‘reclaiming OUR democracy’ and ‘getting our greedy mitts on the levers of power’.

What this REALLY does is serve as a reminder that Bernie bragged about successfully dragging Biden hard to the left. His appointment of Kamala Harris as his Veep is proof of that.

How power-hungry are these Democrats? Are they a serious threat to the freedom of an ordinary citizen?

It only takes a few minutes’ worth of Congressional Hearings by the very unorthodox rules team Pelosi played by to see that the view of politics this crop of Democrats plays under is nothing short of naked power flexed against their enemies — whether that means political enemies like Trump (see Schiff and Nadler’s impeachment attempt), threats to their friends (like Barr), political scapegoats (like ICE), or entities they plan to bully (like the Banks who were scared off of lending money to ICE for fear of Congressional backlash after AOC’s open threats).
