The divide between progressive Democrats and moderate Democrats continues to widen and become more apparent. Progressives believe that moderates are too lukewarm in the present political climate; likewise, moderates maintain that progressives are loose cannons doing more harm than good.

A feud between more outspoken freshmen congressmembers and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exists. At the center of this feud is House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez slammed Pelosi in an interview, going as far as to accuse her of racism.

AOC on Criticism from Pelosi

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has publically censured members of the House such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and others. These congress members have made statements which are very controversial, even to the point of making certain Democrats cringe. The manner in which Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and others conduct themselves on Twitter is also viewed as problematic by Pelosi.

Despite the specific nature of Pelosi’s criticism, Ocasio-Cortez has taken it in a new direction. The congresswoman maintains that hidden racism fuels Pelosi’s criticism.
