Communist catfight! The Democratic left is splintering into a civil war right before our very eyes. The official House Democratic Caucus Twitter account just nuked Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief-of-Staff for criticizing a fellow Democratic lawmaker. They want him fired. It would seem the mainstream Democratic Party has lost all patience with Ocasio-Cortez and her Marxist brigade and the simmering tensions are exploding all over the place. Good times.

Saikat Chakrabarti had a tweet of his flagged by the caucus’ Twitter account on June 27th. In that tweet, Chakrabarti had the nerve to criticize Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS) for her votes on issues to do with the migrant crisis at the border. “I don’t think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system. And the same could even be said of the Southern Democrats. I don’t believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system,” he tweeted. Whoo boy.

Last night, the caucus Twitter account took aim and fired.

“Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color?” it said.

“Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice,” the House Democrats added. “She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue.”

“Keep Her Name Out Of Your Mouth,” it said with interspersed emojis of clapping hands. Wow – talk about persona non-grata.

Conservatives were understandably thrilled by the blue-on-blue infighting. It was cause for much celebration and humor I might add. Chakrabarti fired back and accused the caucus account of taking his tweet out of the context of a conversation where someone else brought up Davids. “I’ve known Rep. Davids for a long time, consider her a friend, and encouraged her to run for Congress back in the fall of 2016,” he said. “I’m glad she did.”

“Everything I tweeted 2 weeks ago was to call out the terrible border funding bill that 90+ Dems opposed. It gave Trump a blank check to continue caging people in horrendous conditions. Our Democracy is literally falling apart. I’m not interested in substance-less Twitter spats,” Chakrabarti said in a follow-up tweet. The exact opposite of that statement seems to be the case here. Just sayin’.

That same day, Chakrabarti wrote: “Instead of ‘fiscally conservative but socially liberal,’ let’s call the New Democrats and Blue Dog Caucus the ‘New Southern Democrats.’ They certainly seem hell-bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.”

From Fox News:

“The spat is the latest flashpoint in a rapidly-escalating feud between the Ocasio-Cortez and top House Democrats, heating up after Congress passed a $4.5 billion border funding bill that Ocasio-Cortez, and freshmen Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., all opposed.

“In an interview last weekend, Pelosi told The New York Times that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”

“Ocasio-Cortez responded by telling The Washington Post this week that the “persistent singling out” by the speaker was “outright disrespectful” and affected “newly elected women of color.”

“That remark sparked anger from House Democrats and their aides, who are becoming increasingly impatient with Ocasio-Cortez’s sparring with the speaker.

“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday.

“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the senior Democratic source said: “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”

“Prominent members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) also sided with Pelosi and criticized Ocasio-Cortez for her remarks.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., a member of the CBC, said Thursday night. “It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that [trope] is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion.”

“But on Friday, when asked by Fox News how she would respond to criticism of playing the ‘race card’ against Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez fired back: “What? That’s stupidly untrue.”

“The Twitter spat comes just a day after Pelosi acknowledged she had warned lawmakers against tweeting negatively about colleagues and addressed an “offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices” that compared centrist Democrats to segregationists. That tweet was authored and then deleted by Chakrabarti.”

Ocasio-Cortez is no brain trust but she would do well to cut Chakrabarti loose. He’s causing even more damage to her position than she is and that’s saying something here. But Ocasio-Cortez is shooting herself in the foot as well – repeatedly.

One senior lawmaker, who is black, scorched Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.” Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges in questioning those comments. That’s a death knell for Ocasio-Cortez you are hearing over that incident.

“She is a nobody. She is a freshman member of Congress with no power. She is not worth the speaker’s brainpower,” a source said — accusing her of starting “needless distractions from serious issues,” and skipping meetings and conference calls in favor of media interviews, tweets and “glamour.” The title of ‘vapid whore’ is not far off at this rate.

President Trump, who has often clashed with Pelosi since taking office, sided with her on Friday calling Ocasio-Cortez disrespectful and maintaining that the speaker is not a racist. “I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being disrespectful to her,” the president said. “I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on.”

Democrats are also ridging at the meddling of the Ocasio-Cortez-aligned Justice Democrats — a progressive group looking to primary Democratic members, some of whom are a part of the CBC. It’s getting harder and harder to tell exactly who is racist here on the left and who isn’t. Quick… tell Pelosi that her ‘unity’ mandate isn’t working.

Chakrabarti admitted in a recent interview to The Washington Post that Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left $93 trillion “Green New Deal” was about implementing socialism in the United States. Both Chakrabarti and Ocasio-Cortez are admirers of those that followed Hitler and espoused flavors of communism as well as fascism.

The Marxist Fab Four squad is widely disliked and not respected among the Democratic Caucus. In fact, right about now they just wish Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley would just go away. Don’t we all. Neither faction of the Dems will back down, so this firestorm is sure to get much worse and much more destructive. That’s great news for President Trump and America.
