AOC’s meteoric rise from bar rooms of New York City to the halls of Congress made her feel untouchable.
And for much of the last two years, AOC and radical members of “The Squad” have driven Democrat Party policy in the House of Representatives.
But with this one act, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez learned the hard way where she stands in Biden’s Democrat Party.
Donald Trump’s campaign is focusing on Biden’s failing mental health to show the American people how he’d be nothing more than an empty suit in the White House to rubber stamp whatever the radical socialists in Congress can ram through.
Democrats know the attacks are devastating because they’re true.
So in an effort to limit that perception, socialist Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found her role at the recent Democrat National Convention limited to a humiliating mere 60-seconds to second Bernie Sanders’ name in nomination.
The parliamentary procedure was a symbolic gesture to appease the radical base of Bernie supporters.
Congratulations, @JoeBiden – I deeply look forward to fighting for our future together and reclaiming our democracy in November.
Thank you @DemConvention for having me deliver Sen. Sanders’ roll call nomination speech.

But it was also completely meaningless.
The Biden campaign paraded washed up neoconservative RINOs from the ’90s and early ’00s like Colin Powell, Chuck Hagel, Susan Molinari, and John Kasich to deliver prime time speeches about how Biden is a supposed “moderate” politician who will restore bipartisanship to Washington, D.C.
As a matter of fact, Kasich had twice as much speaking time as AOC, without any time wasted in meaningless parliamentary procedure.
Meanwhile, Biden limited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders’ roles at the convention to writing a radical “unity” platform that ultimately few outside of the party insiders will ever bother to read.
Who knew that allegiance could be bought for such a cheap price?
