Trouble In Paradise? Fellow New York Democrat Slams AOC, “What Else Is It I’m Supposed To Do?”

A young, prominent, far-left Hispanic female politician from the outer boroughs of New York City and who is rising in credibility in the Democratic Party launched an attack last night on a fellow Democrat. The accusation is that her fellow ‘progressive’ is detached from voters, and not spending enough time listening to and experiencing their problems and concerns. Sound familiar?

Precisely four years ago, this description of Democrat friction would have applied perfectly to the one and only Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). AOC shocked the political world in June of 2018 by using a similar narrative to savage then-incumbent congressman Joe Crowley and subsequently defeating him during the primaries on her way to victory that November.

But that was four years ago, and oh, how times have changed. AOC is no longer the one making the “your out of touch” accusations. Instead, she is now on the receiving end of an almost identical narrative. Consider this tweet last night from New York State Senator Jessica Ramos:

Don’t you just love it when tactics like these boomerang and come full circle?

In a previous tweet, Ramos had stated directly to AOC:

“Maybe if you spent more time in your office and with your staff, you’d know what goes on. Just saying that it’d be nice if you breathed our air.”

Jessica Ramos is 37 years old and has been part of the New York State legislature since her electoral victory in 2018, she represents portions of Queens, and is on the radical left on most issues, from abortion to government spending. The parallels between AOC and Ramos are uncanny. Yet there is clearly trouble in paradise.

In the lead up to AOC’s congressional victory in 2018, she hammered away with virtually the same talking points that Ramos now uses against her. In just four years, the tables have been turned. For a trip down memory lane, consider this campaign video from AOC that year:

This entire episode demands that we rethink the messaging from the Ocasio-Cortez campaign in the lead up to the 2018 midterm elections:

– In 2018, was AOC playing up the angle of ‘humble beginnings’ to accurately reflect her identity, or was that just an opportunistic ploy to defeat Crowley?

– Does AOC truly care about her constituents, or is she more concerned with power, the financial benefits that come along with it, and her own personal branding?

– And if AOC can’t make enough time to interact with a fellow Democrat politician, what must her availability belike to the voters in her district?

This development is not surprising, of course. All one needs to do is spend a few moments observing AOC – in happening such as last week’s fake handcuff incident, for example – to understand that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez cares about herself. She’s as narcissistic and attention-seeking as any politician in America, and that is indeed a bold statement. What we must consider now is this: With these attacks by Jessica Ramos, are Democrats finally starting to see what the rest of us have known for years?
