Ocasio-Cortez demands Cruz, Hawley, McCarthy resign

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has gained a considerable following within the Democratic Party since she was elected to Congress in 2018.

While there has been speculation that she may have ambitions to eventually take Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) seat, she also seems to have other targets in mind. Ocasio-Cortez is now demanding that that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) resign from their Senate seats, The Daily Wire reported

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is apparently also on “the Squad” leader’s hit list, too.

Demanding resignations

“What we saw last week was not just a violent coup attempt, but we also saw a dereliction of duty and a betrayal of our country and a betrayal of the oath that we swear,” Ocasio Cortez said in a video statement, according to The Daily Wire.

Her comment was in reference to the riot at the Capitol earlier this month, as well as efforts by Cruz and Hawley to raise questions about election integrity.

“That is why I have demanded the resignations of senators Ted Cruz, senators Josh Hawley, Majority Leader, Republican Major — rather, Republican Minority Leader in the House McCarthy, Kevin McCarthy, along with many others, because this is not just about political opinion or partisanship,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “This was about the abandonment of our sworn oath.”

All of the individuals who Ocasio-Cortez mentioned have explicitly condemned the unrest at the Capitol building earlier this month.

“The attack at the Capitol was a despicable act of terrorism and a shocking assault on our democratic system,” Cruz said in a Jan. 7 statement. Hawley and McCarthy have both made similar statements.

Conservative media also a target

As The Daily Wire noted, Ocasio-Cortez’s calls for the ouster of her political rivals comes on the heels of a disturbing demand that efforts be made to “rein in” media outlets that she disagrees with.

When asked during an Instagram live stream if there was “discussion in Congress about federal truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives to help with healing,” the representative confirmed that plans were in the works.

Ocasio-Cortez said that “several members of Congress in some of my discussions have brought up media literacy because that is a part of what happened here and we’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation.”

“It’s one thing to have differing opinions but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false and so that’s something that we’re looking into,” she added.

  5. I think they have a better offer and they will be needed. They are not going away, they know how much we need them. PRAY FOR THEM!

  6. Let’s keep in mind the major difference between a Democracy and a Republic is that a republic is a form of government where as a Democracy is an ideology that helps shape how a government is run. Put another way: a republic is the system of government that allows a country to be democratic!
    We are letting a process run the people and the government.

  7. AOC SHOULD HAVE RESIGNED LONG TIME AGO WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT SHE GAVE HER BF THEIR COMPAIGN MONEY.. SHE ACTS AS IF SHE’S THE POTUS..

  9. “to the republic for which it stands” this is why the democrats want to get rid of the pledge of allegiance.

  10. Who cares what she says She worry about the Biden impeachment that is on the way. Do onto others as they do onto you!

  11. All summer the GOP sat on their hands and didn’t call for the resignation of Progressive Dems who were silent while they winked and nodded about the 275 riots, 500 burned buildings, and 27 deaths. Why didn’t the GOP leaders ask for their resignations unless they denounced the violence? The Senate was the majority then. The RNC begs for funds but didn’t get epoch numbers of House or Senate candidates prepared and supported in 2018. The GOP has had decades to fight for responsible voter ID. Now you want us to be fiercely loyal?

  12. The more interesting question is how was she voted in! What does that say about her state? Is there anyone there with the intelligence of a PEA?? Do they have anyone smarter than bar maids? WOW!! Kind of scary, huh?

  13. She must be talking to her self in the mirror.
    That’s how she knows she is talking to someone ignorant.

So please stop acting like any of u own anything on this .. This WORLD BELONGS TO GOD !!!!!!

  15. Ted Cruz isn’t going anywhere. He has a backbone made of steel, he never wavers. And he isn’t about to let a bully like AOC push him around.
