Here’s the Background Story:
The Democrats have a rough time sticking together. They spend much time and energy arguing amongst themselves about their own policies and goals. Now, they aren’t just bickering at each other for the sake of causing heartache; they genuinely don’t see eye to eye on every topic.
Is the Democratic National Committee (DNC) built to operate that way, or is there something else stopping Democrats from making progress? More importantly, could Ocasio-Cortez really be sabotaging her own party?
Here Are the Contributing Factors:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes there’s another force holding the DNC back. She’s accusing radical conservatives of infiltrating the DNC. They disrupt voting coherency and prevent the Democrats from making progress. That’s a big accusation, but Ocasio-Cortez is sure of herself (or full of herself, depending on who you ask).
She can’t single them out on her own. The newly formed “Justice Democrats” have Alexandria at the forefront of the new party. Their goal? Re-define American liberal politics in an attempt to restore the soul of the DNC. Justice Democrats aren’t afraid to rip apart the DMC to achieve their goals, even if it causes destruction in the process.
But maybe they’re onto something and this is an ugly task that needs to be done. The primary concern is this “quest to save the Democrats from themselves” can easily turn into a baseless witch hunt. Does Ocasio-Cortez know who to target? Will she end up undermining the DNC that she’s trying to save?

What Do You Think?
Mainstream Democrats already have their hands full with the preparing for 2020 and utilizing their control over the House of Representatives. The DNC is vulnerable; one can only hope that the Ocasio-Cortez has the right hunch. Is she right, or is she working against the Democrats?
