America Needs Democrats to Follow AOC’s Lead on Their Virginia Loss
Democrats need to make themselves look unelectable to the average person for conservatives to regain power
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is hellbent on keeping the Democratic Party moving further to the Left if that’s possible.
That’s great news for conservatives and regular middle-class Americans who want to live in a functional country. The last time we had one was in 2019 under President Trump when we had record low unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics, store shelves were full, gas was affordable, wages were rising, little inflation, a working supply chain, and not everything was about race. Since we had mean tweets, we couldn’t have normal things and Biden got elected.
If Democrats like AOC were clear-thinking people, they would realize all their far-left policies and ideas we’ve dealt with the past year ruined the country and they should recalibrate. Any good political strategist or politician would say to rethink things when a party won the presidency by 10 points in a state loses the governorship next year. The Democratic Party of Bill Clinton in the 1990s did that and regained electoral success after the drubbing they got in 1994, but not the party of Biden.

Democrats are committed to woke causes and refuse to back off from toxic Critical Race Theory ideas. They are so out of touch with reality when they deny CRT principals are getting taught in schools that they get enraged when a Republican says they will stop them from getting implemented. Why would someone get upset over people stopping something they say isn’t happening? It’s 1984 doublespeak in real life.
AOC indicated her wing of the party, which is running the show, doesn’t intend to back off their extremism. She said, "On the election front, I actually think we have good news as well. I know that Virginia was a huge bummer. And honestly, if anything, I think that the results show the limits of trying to run a fully 100% super moderated campaign that does not excite speak to or energize a progressive base and frankly, we weren’t even really invited to contribute on that race.”
Nothing was moderate about the McAuliffe campaign. It was full of far-left tropes like saying parents shouldn’t have a role in what schools teach their kids. He introduced racial quotas and non-merit-based hiring when he complained there were too many White teachers. What if he said there were too many BIPOC, LGBT, BAME, or whatever other acronyms they come up with to divide people? He was more concerned about getting teachers that had a certain appearance instead of saying he would attract the best.

That’s moderate in the world of AOC and got mocked by conservatives and independents. Candidates she would consider “progressive” lost big around the country who campaigned on Biden’s agenda. If the party keeps listening to people like AOC in 2022 and 2024, they will be in for more big losses. Biden’s policies aren’t designed to bring America back to how it functioned in 2019. The more Americans see that the better chances conservatives have a chance to get into office in blue areas like Virginia.
The Democratic Party as it’s made up today is on course for self-destruction. You can only focus on people’s differences through ideas like diversity, inclusion, and equity before you divide everyone against each other instead of paying attention to what should unite us as Americans. People can’t afford high gas, grocery, and electricity prices when their wages don’t adjust. It won’t take long for Americans to get fed up with the government intruding into aspects of life where they have no business with unconstitutional COVID restrictions.
Moderate Democrats like JFK and Bill Clinton are rare and don’t have any power in today’s party. The extremists who are out of touch with reality and who have no regard for the Constitution are in charge. AOC and her crowd should keep up their extremism to get people like them out of office and get conservatives elected nationwide and sensible Democrats elected in areas where Republicans aren’t competitive. Conservatives and moderates should do everything they could to encourage the Left to implode on themselves so America can get back on track.
