If you’re looking for leaders who will promote unity, don’t look to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The socialist darling revealed her strategy for when she likely arrives in Congress next year: dividing people — or “segmenting” them, as she put it.
When asked what her plan is to be successful after she’s elected, she replied, “I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance.
“You know, there’s a lot of inside baseball, inside the beltway, as you, you know, you always hear that term thrown around, but there are very few organizers in Congress, and I do think that organizers operate differently,” she said.
“It’s a different kind of strategy, and what it is is really about organizing— and, and really thinking about that word ‘organizing,’ segmenting people, being strategic in their action,” she continued, spilling the dirty little secret that instead of bringing people together, she’s going to continue “segmenting” Americans into categories and classes.
She added she wants to put pressure “on” the chamber, “instead of only focusing on the pressures in the chamber.”
“That’s a really interesting thought,” a mesmerized host Chris Hayes responded.
In other words, get used to the craziness progressives have inflicted on the Senate during the Kavanaugh hearings.
That’s likely the kind of “pressure on the chamber” Ocasio-Cortez philosophy has in mind to bring to D.C.
