Lobbyist Chris Cox warned against socialism at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting last week, and told his audience that Reps. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) “are in for a rude awakening when the real America goes to the polls” in 2020.
For this, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) slammed him on Twitter, writing, “Can ‘the real America’ please stand up… This Ain’t It, Chief!”
“The socialist wave we warned was coming is here,” Cox told attendees of the NRA annual meeting. “And it’s not just the two coasts that are under water, the wave is hitting the heartland of America. But as this circus goes on, millions of Americans will see how far outside the mainstream these socialists have become. Friends, do you think Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are mainstream in the United States of America? Are they in for a rude awakening in November of next year when the real America goes to the polls?”
Ocasio-Cortez also fired back at Cox. “Wild that the NRA is suggesting the voters of NY-14 aren’t ‘real Americans’ bc they don’t think assault weapons in school classrooms is a good idea,” she wrote.
The Real America
Ocasio-Cortez is the face of the new progressive Democrats. In her posse is Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). All three of these women represent areas that are dominated by not only liberals but liberals that share the same ethnic backgrounds as their representative.
This makes perfect sense, as the representative working for them in D.C. should have their specific interests at heart. That, however, does not mean that specific district, city, county, or even state reflects the overall feel of the country.
Twisting the Narrative
As usual, Democrats are taking words out of context to create their own narrative. Omar did just that when she accused Cox of not considering those voters the real America and then challenged that NRA members do not represent the overall feeling of Americans.
She could not be more wrong. Most Americans, in their heart, are patriotic and believe in the Constitution regardless of their political ideology.
While some Americans may not own a gun, they support the right of other law-abiding citizens to do so. That is the real America.
What is not the real America is politicians that twist narratives and are working tirelessly to change our Democratic Republic into a socialist state.
Our Founding Fathers and many others shed their own blood to ensure we were free of government overreach and government tyranny.
We the People surely will not allow a group of radical leftists to change their vision by allowing a corrupt and failed ideology to take over this country.
