The so-called resistance is swarming like a horde of angry hornets after Nancy Pelosi’s nationally televised smack down of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during a “60 Minutes” interview on Sunday.
The leader of House Democrats has been sending signals that she may be at the end of her patience with the former bartender who has dominated the media and repeatedly embarrassed Pelosi who despite being a leftist herself, is a longtime member of the party establishment.
Ocasio-Cortez’s act may have crossed Pelosi’s red line after the PAC that was behind her candidacy – Justice Democrats – promoted a blacklist targeting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and threatening to primary House members who didn’t bend to their extremist agenda.
Pelosi’s condescending remarks to Stahl about the size of AOC’s following and her firm rejection of socialism were only the beginning.
She continued her mockery of the 29-year-old freshman when she further punctured the thin-skinned Twitter diva’s bubble by remarking that a “glass of water” with a “D” next to it would have won New York’s 14th congressional district.

Count Michael Moore among those who are really, really pissed off at Pelosi and true to form, the porcine propagandist took to Twitter to vent his displeasure with both ageist and racist remarks about Madame Speaker.
Moore invoked the left’s dog whistle term of “privilege” which is every bit as racist as the N-word and other slurs only the left continues to get a pass on such vile terminology.
White people. Nobody likes giving up power. And they never see the writing on the wall. The new day arrives and no one has the heart to tell them they and their old tired privileged ways are over. https://t.co/jAGjzEjLgp

Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore slammed Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday after she appeared on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” saying the California Democrat’s “old tired privileged ways are over.”
Moore included a clip from Pelosi’s interview in his tweet where she said that the progressive flank of the House Democratic Caucus, including freshmen such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), is “like five people.”
The hypocrisy of Michael Moore is endless.
He himself is a wealthy white man who it could be pointed out would have personally benefited from such “privilege” were such a thing to actually exist outside of being a junk term bandied about by cynics and bitter losers looking for someone else to blame for their own failures.
One of those bitter losers would be the grumpy old man in the ratty baseball cap who used to be relevant. According to the most recent barometer of his success which was the heavily-hyped anti-Trump movie “Fahrenheit 11/9” which bombed at the box office, is the one whose days are really nearing the end while he brays like a mastodon being sucked under in a tar pit in 280 characters.
Could it be that Nancy Pelosi may surprisingly be the one who strangles America’s socialist revolution in its cradle?
