Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatens primary challenges to Dems who vote with GOP

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ignited controversy among House Democratic ranks this week after allegedly threatening Democrats who vote with Republicans that they will be put on a "list" for primary challenges.

While Democrats want restrictions on the Second Amendment, AOC and her motley crew of open-borders leftists were outraged that a provision requires ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to be notified if illegal immigrants try to buy guns.

During a closed-door meeting Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) admonished two dozen moderate Democrats for sometimes siding with Republicans, urging unequivocal support for the Democratic agenda and universal condemnation of Republican policies.

New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks at a rally calling on Sen.

"We are either a team or we're not, and we have to make that decision", Pelosi said, according to the Washington Post.

"She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they're going to want a list of names and she's going to give it to them", confirmed her spokesperson. Unlike them, Ocasio-Cortez takes center stage despite holding no leadership role in the party or near-term presidential ambitions.

"I always feel responsible for what I vote for", Democratic Rep. Jefferson Van Drew, who defected on the vote, told The Hill. A senior Democratic aide put the onus on Hoyer and Clyburn for the ongoing problem, saying the two leaders are not communicating with each other about which members they have cut loose to vote with the GOP, creating a problem that is hard to fix.
