The newest members of the elected “progressive” Left can’t seem to help themselves. Whether it is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s accusations of racism against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she doesn’t get her way or Ilhan Omar questioning the leadership of her own party when they won’t cave in to the radical agenda of her and her besties, the Democratic Party continues to fracture along lines of how far you are willing to push your own “progressiveness” for the sake of “progress.”
Madam Speaker, welcome to the true nature of identity politics – where you’re accused of being racist for no reason at all, and where intellectually lazy insults are used against you as a way to replace substantive debate of your argument or idea. https://t.co/3z6PyPQoR1

Four junior members of the House of Representatives have styled themselves as “The Squad,” all with the common goal of pushing radical agendas that alienate the majority of both their party and the average American. As is common among the Regressive Left, any questioning of the reality and/or logic of their plans is promptly shouted down by intellectually dishonest accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, fascism, etc.
Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has pointed out exactly what they are doing, which is to offer no solution and avoid any debates that would require substantive knowledge or even the most basic grasp of fact. As Corey Richardson so eloquently stated on Twitter, the attitude of “the squad” is the stereotypical Millennial posture that having an opinion is in and of itself worthy of reward, while experience is a signal that someone is trying to sabotage what you feel you are entitled to.
Many await with bated breath to see what comes next, as the political arena nowadays keeps rolling with implosive moments and sensational spats.
As for “The Squad,” it honestly seems like AOC and her friends are just trying to hand the 2020 election to President Trump.
