I have been saying at speaking engagements that there is a new crop of elected members of Congress who are a clear and present danger to our Constitutional Republican form of government. These newly elected members of the U.S. Congress include: Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Palestinian Rashida Tlaib and Islamist Ilhan Omar. They call themselves “Justice Democrats.”
The organization formed as a result of the 2016 United States presidential election and has a stated goal of reforming the Democratic Party by running “a unified campaign to replace every corporate-backed member of Congress and rebuild the Democratic Party from “scratch” starting in the 2018 congressional midterm elections.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was recruited by the Justice Democrats and is featured in the below video in the effort to recruit more Justice Democrats and increase their coalition within the Democratic Party. According to the Justice Democrats website:
We’re focused on recruiting candidates to run in districts where the incumbent Democrat is demographically and ideologically out-of-touch with the voters of the district.
Watch this video to see how they recruited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
Here is what the Justice Democrats are looking for:
- BOLD LEADERS who will represent and mobilize their communities to fight for the Justice Democrats platform, from Medicare for All to the Green New Deal and ending mass incarceration.
- GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGNERS who will run on Big Organizing over Big Money — inspiring thousands of grassroots volunteers across the district, and rejecting all corporate PAC and lobbyist donations.
- MOVEMENT BUILDERS who will work with Justice Democrats in Congress and across the country to build the Democratic Party into a progressive force that truly represents all Americans.
This movement has made inroads into the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is no longer the party of JFK. It is no longer the Party of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. It is now the party of a coalition of Socialists and Islamists bent on fundamentally transforming the Democratic Party from the ground up. These are the new lions who are putting forward a bold agenda embodied in the Green New Deal Resolution put forward by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. It is just the beginning.
I say again, the Justice Democrat movement is a clear and present danger to our Constitutional Republican form of government.
