For the past few days, Nancy Pelosi and the four Harridans of the House–Ocasio Cortez, Tlaib, Omar, and Pressley–have been engaged in an escalating war of words with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over who is in charge. The quartet of scolds seems to think that because the are on Twitter a lot and a lot of deranged lefties love them that they should call the shots.

Today, it was ratcheted up another notch when Ocasio Cortez accused Pelosi of encouraging death threats against her.
AOC appears to suggest that Pelosi is targeting her because Pelosi wants her to get death threats: “It’s singling out 4 individuals, and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get …. I think it’s just worth asking why” pic.twitter.com/cueiQi9XC8

…knowing the amount of death threats we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention, I think it’s worth asking why.”

This is pretty incredible stuff. First off, I nearly have to call bullsh** on the entire premise. Who, exactly, is making death threats against this person because Nancy Pelosi smacked her ass? Ardent, hard core Pelosi and Hoyer partisans? I can understand her getting a lot of “shut up, doofus, you aren’t helping” and “lolol” but death threats over this? No way, Jose, to coin a phrase.
The positive thing about this is that Ocasio Cortez has been crossing Rubicons as though they were a Louisiana bayou. She’s called Pelosi racist. She’s characterized both “Blue Dog Democrats” in the House as segregationists. And now she’s accusing Pelosi of publicizing the spat that Ocasio Cortez and her buddies have been doing play-by-play commentary on via Twitter of orchestrating it to generate death threats.
In fact, the only downside to this is that Ocasio Cortez has actually made me feel a tiny bit of sympathy for Pelosi.
