Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.
Just one week into her congressional tenure, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ruffling feathers within her own party which is now mounting a behind-the-scenes effort to rein in the social media star.
The Bronx-born Democratic socialist has racked up a bevy of complaints from her colleagues, including incumbents who arent pleased that she is backing a campaign to mount primary challenges against moderate Democrats, Politico reported.
Im sure Ms. Cortez means well, but theres almost an outstanding rule: Dont attack your own people, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) told the site. We just dont need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.
Politico spoke to nearly 20 Democratic lawmakers and aides who said theres a two-fold effort from within to rein in Ocasio-Cortez warning that she could wind up isolating herself, but also trying to harness her star power to unite the party in its fight against Republicans.

It appears that AOC “tinkled” in the wrong bowl of corn flakes.
These DemonRATs should call her Sugar Daddy Soros and complain.
They are going to plant a dead 12 year old girl in apt
Yeah, because the last thing they (the Dems) want as the election cycle gets closer and closer is some millennial idiot running around asking taxpaying voters to foot the bill for everything for free. She is looney even for them and they know it.
Democrats want to keep her quiet, because, they don’t want her so openly pointing out where the democratic party is completely heading, and that is full-blown socialism.
Fight back, AOC! America needs to know what you and the democrats are all about.
She’s speaking what they all think and try to keep behind the scenes. But they’re freaking out because she’s actually saying it.
Can’t be done. She speaks for their rising new Millenial moonbat base. She is a reflection of them, not their cause.
As anyone who has dealt with these folks can tell you they believe they are the smartest people on the planet, and believe they should be running everything despite the fact that they aren’t yet 30.
I see arkanside in her future
I wonder Would Roy Moore have been the conservative version of Ms Cortez?
No more than Ted Cruz, Ron Paul, or Rand Paul has been.
You dont like them?
Im sure Ms. Cortez means well, but theres almost an outstanding rule: Dont attack your own people,
Paging all RINOS. Paging all RINOS.
Like trying too catch a Rabid Dog.
This happened with Bella Abzug in Congress in the ‘70s. My mother’s cousin worked for Ed Koch, who was in Congress at the time, and it was a given after a certain point in time that if Bella proposed a bill, it was DOA.
Occasional Cortex needs to be careful about her level of hubris.
I like them fine in fact I like Moore and I wish he had won. And more evidence shows the Rats broke the law to beat him. I was just wondering.
