As then-President-elect Joe Biden was feigning a desire for national unity in the wake of the January 6th Capitol Hill attack, “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley took a decidedly different tone.
As usual, this less-famous counterpart to the radical Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said the left’s quiet part out loud about the end goal of their progressive politics.
In a tweet last week, Pressley, who declared in the wake of this summer’s widespread violence that there “needs to be unrest in the streets as long as there is unrest in our lives,” took to Twitter to declare that there will be no “reset” amid current national tensions.
So it’s ok for the left to use political violence as a tactic and a means to an end. People on the right use metaphors and they get accused of inciting or triggering violence. Seriously.
“There will be no reset button. No return to normal. The status quo was unjust in the first place,” she tweeted, as reported by Breitbart.
This stook in stark contrast to Biden’s call on Twitter to “move forward.”
Earlier that week, Biden had written,“In 10 days, we move forward and rebuild — together” of his then-upcoming inauguration.
“Our way is plain: It is the way of democracy — of lawfulness, and of respect — respect for each other, and for our nation,” he had written on the day of the Capitol breach.
Whose narrative do you think will win out, his or the “Squad’s,” now that he’s been sworn in?
I sure have a guess.
