The Squad must change the paradigm and take control of their narrative. Let’s be clear the Squad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are not Left-Wing radicals. And it is the duty of the Democratic Party not to sacrifice them or leave them hanging. We do that at our peril. These are not normal times and as such demand solutions that many of us have not seen or are scared of attempting. I received the following FB message from a dear friend. Egberto, I know you are savvy enough to see what this is. It’s just the next step in the GOP’s attempt to paint the party as extremists and socialists. It started with their obsession with AOC She is topic one on FOX and has been since before she took office. They aren’t talking about her to help us. Come on!!! Don’t play into their hands! I replied as follows. I get it. I have not bought into it at all. I know. But … They have defined the narrative for these ladies. IMHO, if we do not answer with the truth and then pivot to jobs, they will hold that card throughout. I want us to define it as Democrats. I will cover this on Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies and talk about what I mean. If we leave these guys stranded, then we will get a dangerous split. We cannot allow the President or the Republican Right Wing machine to put Progressives, Democrats on the defensive. We are the ones trying to provide policies that support the poor and middle-class. We must act the part, be aggressive, and lean into our values.
