Leftist progressive PAC “Justice Democrats” and its House Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), are reportedly threatening moderate Democrats in the House with primary opponents in the 2020 election cycle for the crime of not being liberal enough.
Who: Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) vs. “The Squad,” the four freshman Democrat communists.
What: In an interview with Fox News Tuesday, Cuellar revealed further cracks in the Democratic Party – which is already caught in battle between its House Speaker and the four freshman – when he told Neil Cavuto about the threats by “The Squad” and Justice Democrats PAC to find primary opponents for himself and several other members of Congress.
“They’re socialists and they want to impose their vision to Texas and we certainly know that in Texas our vision is very different from… what I call these Justice Democrats, which are really socialists. They’re not really Democrats,” Cuellar said, responding to the threat.
Why it Matters: This is the second indication in 2 weeks that “The Squad” is causing divisiveness in the Democratic Party.
It also confirms the conviction of many on the political right, most of all President Trump, that the four females are pushing the Democrat Party to the far-left in preparation for the presidential election. It remains to be seen (and will definitely be fun to watch) who will win the power struggle for the hearts and minds of today’s left.
