The Gloves Are Off For Pelosi, She Responds To AOC Calling Her Racist [Video]
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has had her hands full with her new pet project Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In the beginning, Pelosi defended AOC and the famed ‘four socialists’ through a series of racially insensitive blunders but the gloves are off now.
AOC and the other three, Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) better watch out because Pelosi says she’s done talking about them. The Speaker seems sick of their warped twisting of reality.
Pelosi responded on Thursday to accusations of racism made against her by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by noting that this latest spat between the two Democratic lawmakers was started by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff and saying that she is no longer going to discuss the issue, The Daily Wire reported.
“I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate,” Pelosi said. “They took offense because I addressed, at the request of my members, an offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices that referenced our Blue Dogs and our New Dems essentially as segregationists.”
“How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them,” Pelosi continued. “But I’m not going to be discussing it any further.”
The incident that Pelosi was referring to came when Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, tweeted that Democrats who are not far-left are “hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.”

AOC was forced to walk back her ‘racist’ comments about Pelosi but then alluded that the speaker wants her to get death threats: “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.”
AOC’s gross overstep has Democrats on both sides up in arms. Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) blasted socialist Rep. AOC for calling Nancy Pelosi a racist. Clay also directed fire at Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti, the far-left Justice Democrats.
“What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” Clay said. “I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares.”
“It shows you how weak their argument is when they have to resort and direct racist accusations toward Speaker Pelosi … it’s very disappointing to me,” Clay continued.
