Citing radical progressives like democratic socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., former Trump White House aide Sebastian Gorka said President John F. Kennedy, long a standard-bearer of the Democratic Party, wouldn’t be welcome in the party today.
Gorka made the assertion during an interview on “The Answer,” aired Sunday on AM 970 in New York, saying Kennedy was a “hardcore, pro-national security politician.”
“Today, a hardcore, pro-national security politician like John F. Kennedy would not be allowed in the Democratic Party. That’s how bad it is,” he said.
Calling a spade a spade, or a loony a loony, Gorka noted that at least former President Bill Clinton would have controlled the fringe elements.
“The lunatics are taking over the asylum … I’m not fan of Bill Clinton, but Bill Clinton and his ilk would at least rein in the loonies,” he said.
“When you’ve got [Sen.] Kamala Harris comparing DHS and ICE to the KKK, which is absolutely disgusting … When you’ve got Ocasio-Cortez, who’s publicly calling for a socialist revolution … you understand that the Democratic Party has been taken over by radicals.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to reclaim the speaker’s gavel now that Democrats have the majority in the House, found out right away that she is up against a different breed when Ocasio-Cortez spend her first day in Washington, D.C., participating in a climate change protest IN Pelosi’s office.
Host John Catsimatidis concluded that it will be up to the American people to decide who we are as a nation.
The state of today’s Democratic Party has been a long time in the making, with Nov. 2008 and the election of Barack Obama as president being a turning point.
Emboldened by the win, progressives came out of the shadows and boldly declared their arrival on the political scene. Aided by a complicit media working overtime to mainstream their radical views, the hard left was off and running.
The irony being that like JFK, Obama would soon prove to be too moderate for the hardcore base that made up the base of Bernie’s army.
