It’s no secret at this point that the hallowed halls of Congress have been tainted and stained in recent years by those who would seek to destroy the democracy our forefathers worked so hard to build. You and I both know that the Democratic Party has been moving leftward for a while now, but it’s only been in the last few years that we have seen the most damage done to our great nation and what she once stood for.
Suffice it to say that it all started when the Justice Democrats made their move to fill the seats of Congress with those of a more progressive, if not wholly socialistic, leaning.
Enter the House’s infamous Squad.
And with the appointments of such clearly anti-American souls as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, it seems our country has rather quickly gone to hell in a handbasket.
No, it’s not really the legislation they have put forward, although that doesn’t help. In fact, the Squad, both as a whole and separately, have seemed to accomplish very little in the way of laws and regulations that might make any bit of a difference.
However, that doesn’t mean they haven’t been decidedly destructive. What they have done instead is used their social media prowess to create some of the largest political followings of our time. And it has given rise to a very different looking America, and a socialist one at that.
So I guess it’s a good thing that not everyone is willing to sit back and let this fly.
Introducing the Anti-AOC’s, as they are being coined as.
Much like AOC’s Squad, this group is made up of young, freshman, and very passionate leaders and now members of Congress. And their goal is to counteract the socialism AOC and friends push on the nation.
One of the loudest is newly elected Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert, a mother, small business owner, and a woman intent on bringing small government back to America.
On Sunday on “American Thought Leaders,” Boebert told the audience, “I wanted to take a stand to do my part to serve my country, to secure the greatest nation this world has ever known, to secure freedom, to promote prosperity and to keep the American dream alive.” And she added, “That’s what I’m here to fight for. And I want to put an end to this socialist agenda. So this is me doing my part to serve my country to do just that.”
Boebert and several other newly elected members of Congress ran this year primarily on the idea that they would be the fighting change to put socialism back in its place, strike it from the land and return our nation to the greatness it once held.
Florida Rep-elect. Maria Elvira Salazar is another who has recently joined the ranks of those against AOC and her goons. As the daughter of Cuban immigrants, she knows all too well the dangers of socialism and has made it her mission to eradicate it from the Sunshine State.
In fact, her election successfully flipped her seat from being held by a woman who has admitted to being a socialist to a very conservative one.
And of course, we can’t forget about Madison Cawthorn, recently chosen to represent North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District. He ran on much of the same ideas, stating that he was running because “our faith, our freedoms, and our values are under assault from coastal elites and leftists like (House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.”
And he is determined to take the fight to them. He told People magazine, “This election showed that we’re a divided people. Americans are hungry for leadership that appeals to our highest aspirations, and that’s precisely what I intend to do.”
But Cawthorn will also be taking something else from the Anti-American AOC.
As of the day he is sworn into office, Cawthorn, at the age of 25, will officially be the youngest member of Congress ever elected. AOC used to hold that title, as she was placed in office at the age of 29. But now, her primary claim to fame will be given to another.
Talk about a slap in the face.
Only time will tell if these young new recruits will be able to successfully take on the challenge of the progressive Squad. But if their campaigns prove anything, they are certainly willing to try.
