Not so hopeful yet, Simonsen

Marie Simonsen has a nice comment that gets the fight Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is fighting to seem easier than it is. An overarching problem is that the comment does not mention anything about the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America). Simonsen mentions AOCs self-appointed role as a democratic socialist, but the institutions that support her is the central. The DSA has now reached the 50 000 members and is in a short time become one of american histories greatest venstresideorganisasjoner.

Then how Ocasio-Cortez has been received by the democrats. Simonsen suggests that it can be difficult - and it has she's right - but in contrast to what Simonsen writes, it is already begun. Pelosi has not "come[t] them in the face, support[t], and root[t]" on them. Naturally, it is Pelosi's diplomatic in his rhetoric, but she was one of the many Democrats who supported the Joe Crowley, motkandidaten to the AOC in in. The more problematic is the fact that AOC is his first was essentially a "Green New Deal".

city Centre in Democratic party did not like this, and so quickly Pelosi was selected as Speaker of The House, she set down a "Select Committee on Climate Change". This might initially seem good, but it is rather the opposite. AOC is not promised to any space, and comes in the best to get a small role. The group has almost no authority, neither the possibility to enter the draft or submit a bill for the House. Typically enough, it was also not a part of the committee's internal rules that representatives should not receive the kampanjefinansiering from oil and gas companies, and lobbyistene to Enron or BP comes enough to ensure that the AOC, Bernie and the other progressive democratic plans be stopped before they see the light.

This kampanjefinansiering is also an important part of the AOCs evocation - the fact that she refuses to accept money from other than small donors has been a key principle. The same can we - in contrast to what Simonsen writes - not say about potential presidential candidate Beto O'rourke. Rather than be a support in the grassroots, as Simonsen writes, he is a kunstgraskandidat. He received no grasrotsstøtte in the fight against Ted Cruz, but received no support for either the DSA or the AFL-CIO (the largest union), and major funding was also received by a Super-PAC partially funded by the svogeren his. His career is characterized by support for de-regulation of finance and support for trade agreements, and he voted, among other things in order to punish the youth by 15 years in prison for sexte. And as always: A acquired candidate can always be purchased by someone else, it will be O'rourke or Pelosi.

What Norwegian commentators believe if the primaries have sufficient little to say, but it would have been refreshing if they took a trip to the socialist magazine Jacobins web pages before they accepted narrativet to the centre of the american policy.
