Congressional Black Caucus members are furious at Justice Democrats, accusing the outside progressive group aligned with firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) of trying to oust lawmakers of color, specifically African American lawmakers. Justice Democrats is backing primary challengers to eight-term Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), a Hispanic Caucus member, and 10-term Rep. Wm. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). The insurgent group also made noise this year about challenging Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), a CBC member seen as the heir apparent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Pretending Pelosi is racist is...juvenile and ignorant.

Democratic lawmaker unloads on Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff for ‘using the race card.'

"What a weak argument, because you can't get your way and because you're getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That's unbelievable to me," [Missouri Congressman Lacy] Clay said. "I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares."

In an interview with The Washington Post on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez accused Pelosi of singling out newly elected women of color.

Pelosi had previously been dismissive of the four freshman female lawmakers, saying that despite their large presence on social media, they only account for four votes in the Democratic caucus.

"It shows you how weak their argument is when they have to resort and direct racist accusations toward Speaker Pelosi ... it's very disappointing to me," Clay said.

The Missouri Democrat also described Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti and the progressive group Justice Democrats as "juvenile" and "ignorant."

She really does need to have some air let out of her head. Not in that she's an airhead, but that it's gotten WAY too big and she still really hasn't done much of anything other than talk.

AOC will be remembered as the idiot who lead the charge to a Trump victory in 2020.
