Official House Democrats' Twitter uses AOC's 'women of color' remark to slam her chief of staff

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was fed up with the social media infighting within her party. If you’ve got a problem, she said, come to her. Don’t tweet about it.

That was her message just a few days ago to House Democrats. That message quite clearly did not get through to everyone, because Friday the official House Democrats Twitter account posted a sharp, direct tweet attacking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti.

Chakrabarti criticized the immigration voting record of Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kan.) back on June 27.

“I think the point still stands,” Chakrabarti wrote on Twitter. “I don’t think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system. And the same could even be said of the Southern Democrats. I don’t believe Sharice is a racist person, but her votes are showing her to enable a racist system”

For some reason, whoever runs the Twitter account for House Democrats went back more than two weeks, pulled this old tweet up, and launched an attack on Ocasio-Cortez’s relatively well-known chief of staff, making a play on the very words AOC herself used this week to criticize Pelosi.

“Who is this guy and why is he explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color?” the tweet read. “Her name is Congresswoman Davids, not Sharice. She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue. Keep her name out of our mouth.”

The attack is a clear reference to Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier this week in a Washington Post interview called out Pelosi for her “disrespectful” “explicit singling out of newly-elected women of color.”

There’s a lot going on here. Who wrote/approved this? Pelosi? Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus who presumably has oversight of the account? A rogue social media staffer with an axe to grind?

Second question: Why would they post this? Democratic leadership claims to be concerned with presenting a unified front as they investigate the president and try to influence immigration policy, and this kind of activity fully distracts from those issues.

Regardless of the who and why, Republicans are certainly content to sit back and watch the most prominent names in the party tear each other down as 2020 draws nearer.

UPDATE: Chakrabarti responded to House Democrats:

Has anyone but me noticed that ALL people are naturally biased to people of their own race? I have been a strong Christian for most of my life and the members of the churches I have attended throughout, when asked, will claim that they are not racist. However in a church social or pot-luck they segregate themselves into groups divided by race. Let a church member of a different race sit down with them and a chill suddenly descends into that group and the person of a different race of the group really understands that he/she is not really welcomed in the group. The old adage ‘birds of a feather flock together’ is quite true of humanity.

And what is this ‘people of color’ BS. As to ‘Whites’, I have never seen a person that is truly white. Pink Skins is probably the most accurate. Same for ‘blacks’ who range from dark chocolate, to milk chocolate to what they themselves call red bone like the bone of a cooked chicken leg. And what’s funny is that in each of the four classified races, red, yellow, black and white, there are sub-divisions of race where they despise each other in their own race. Okinawans don’t like Japanese and Japanese don’t like Okinawans even though they speak the same language and look the same. It’s true all over the world.

The only true non racist person that ever walked the face of this Earth is Jesus Christ. We are supposed to follow his teachings but apparently self pride still gets into the way and it’s worse today than it has ever been in the world’s history.
