Justice Democrats’ spokesman Waleed Shahid called out Democrat congressional leaders for refusing to defend the asinine statements coming out of the mouths of the avowed racists, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. I agree, Shahid! I think every Democrat should support the racists in their party just as much and as often as they can. It would make our jobs so much easier in 2020 and would guarantee the return of the House to the Republicans. They are already bleeding Jewish, Black, Hispanic, and Catholic voters, but there are so many more they could alienate if they really tried.
Justice Democrats spokesman Waleed Shahid called out Democratic congressional leaders for what he described as their failure to defend the progressive freshman members of the party during an appearance with Chris Hayes on Thursday night.
Shahid’s comments were a response to the criticism Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has faced following her saying, “some people did something,” as a way to describe the terror attacks that occurred on 9/11.
“There’s a 200-miles-per-hour ideological right-wing war machine coming after Ilhan Omar, and also Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. My question is where is the Democratic Party leadership on this?” Shahid said. “You didn’t see that many comments from candidates today running for president in 2020, you didn’t see that many comments from Nancy Pelosi, or Steny Hoyer or Chuck Schumer for that matter.”
“What we’ve seen is a pattern of the Democratic Party leadership trying to distance themselves away from these three women instead of seeing these women as the rising leaders in the party who you have to fight for,” he continued. “When you are faced with this war machine, you’ve got to fight back and you’ve got to defend people in your party.”
“I think we need a Democratic Party that actually fights for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib against these attacks because they can’t keep running away from it and make fun of them at AIPAC, as Schumer and Hoyer did, or pile on the attacks,” Shahid concluded.
