Democrats no longer pretend not to be radically progressive and close as skin to George Soros.
AOC has invited Ana Maria Archila, co-executive direct of the progressive advocacy group the Center for Popular Democracy. She is one of the two women who confronted Jeff Flake on an elevator that caused him to wet his pants during the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It will be interesting to see if she disrupts the speech.
If she does, the Secret Service should escort her out and I would hope they wouldn’t do it quietly.
In a statement to The Intercept, Archila said expressed gratitude for Ocasio-Cortez’s invitation to Tuesday’s high-stakes speech.
“I just feel particularly moved that in her first participation in the State of the Union she is inviting me to join and inviting that moment of the elevator, my confrontation with the men who do not understand the life of women and the lives of people who are not in power, that she’s inviting that into the imagination of people again,” Archila told the news outlet.
Ocasio-Cortez hinted at her guest’s identity on Saturday, tweeting a photo of a pin that reads: “Well behaved women rarely make history.”
“Y’all aren’t ready for NY-14’s #StateOfTheUnion guest!” the freshman congresswoman wrote. “Here’s a hint: I just picked up this gift for them at our very own Lockwood Shop in Jackson Heights.”
In her Semptember 28 confrontation with Flake, Archila shouted at the lawmaker: “What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court.”
“This is not tolerable,” she added. “You have children in your family. Think about them.”
