Here are some reasons why many Democrats take issue with Justice Democrats

• Divisive Provocateurs
• GOP & RU Weaponizes JDs
• Alt-Right Meets Alt-Left
• Voted With Republicans
• Unseat Dems, Not GOP
• Suspect Financial Dealings
• Unhappy Constituents

1/112 Here we go...
First off, gratitude for all the people — whose tweets are included in this thread — who have solid points & pertinent contributions about Justice Dems(JDs). I couldn’t have said it better myself. I hope this helps those who're still wondering why Dems are frustrated with JDs. 2/
Who're they?
"Justice Dems is an American progressive political action cmte founded in '17 by Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks & former leadership from '16 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. The two are no longer affiliated with group." Wiki /3
Who're they?
"In the 2018 elections, 26 of 79 candidates endorsed by JDs won their primary elections. Seven of these candidates won in the general election: Raúl Grijalva, Ro Khanna, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Pramila Jayapal." Wiki 4/
Who're they?
JD’s agenda is primarying establishment Dems & centrists to push the party far left. They're legislating but moreover they're loudly agitating. And it's during a time when HouseDems are confronting unprecedented GOP corruption when unity & cooperation is required. 5/
Who're they?
"Pressley, who unseated a 20yr incumbent on a message of 'change can’t wait' is part of a women-led 'squad' taking aim at power structures on Capitol Hill."

Squad: Ayanna Pressley—Rashida Tlaib—Ilhan Omar—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) 6/

@ninaandtito P.S. #2 — Alt-Right Meets Alt-Left
Progressive socialist presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders - who supports progressive JDs & mentored AOC - is aligned with RU. It's right under people's noses. Follow the chain - follow the money. This is not a conspiracy theory. #NeverBernie
@ninaandtito P.S. #3 — Alt-Right Meets Alt Left & Weaponize
Progressive socialist presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders (supports JDs & mentored AOC), mirrors Trump. It is not a coincidence, it is deliberate to operation to weaken the Democratic party.

@ninaandtito @raventerp100 P.S. #4 — Unseat Dems, Not GOP

Reminder: Justice Dems perceive centrists as the 'enemy'. @RepRichardNeal's challenger wants to join AOC’s 'Squad'. Incumbent Dems are being targeted by both GOP & alt-left JDs.

Patriots, let's support him

@ninaandtito @raventerp100 @RepRichardNeal @animaeme P.S. #5 — GOP/RU Weaponize Justice Dems
Cenk Uygur was a Repub. Repub presidential candidate Roemer gave him $4m. Cenk founded The Young Jerks & JusticeDem PAC. Propagandists want to portray Dems as 'socialist' boogeymen. TYT airs BS & AOC talking 'socialism.' h/t @dillman_diana

"AOC is a disgruntled Berner who did phonebank for Bernie when the Turk Cenk Uygur+SecularTalk found her. She's a dangling charm but a snake in the grass." @ShirlsAdams

JDs want a 3rd Party. Screenshot from JD website:

"...many Dems have been sounding alarm on the insurgent Left PAC Justice Dem Socialists who receive dark money from Bernie's PAC #OurRevolution. AOC & Tlaib are registered DSA. Note: Pressley is moderate." h/t @ShirlsAdams

Thread | "WSJ gave [Uygur] print space to stoke divisions among dems & to help republicans promote her as the face of the dem party. The chaos agents are working overtime to ensure trump’s second term"

Transnational Org Crime Emphasis

Thread | "Emergence of phony opposition is now becoming obvious to everyone. But if your assumption is that the enemy is right-wingers or Left-wingers, you are not seeing the battlefield clearly yet."
P.S. #10 — Unseat Dems, Not GOP
"Unlike their wins in deep blue districts, #justicedemocrats campaigned AGAINST non-berniebro Dems who flipped seats."

Class act. 🙄
P. S. #12 — GOP&RU Weaponizes JDs
"If you're in DC & don't question freshman rep[AOC] getting more media coverage than average & automated bot/troll support, stop acting like you understand politics in '19. You don't & you're dangerous." h/t @Planet_Phoebe
@Planet_Phoebe P. S. #13 — GOP & RU Weaponizes JDs
@RascalPinkish: "3 of Bernie Sanders top staffers have posted tweets basically begging Bernie cult members to attack 2 different women."

Reminder: Progressive Socialist Bernie endorses JusticeDs & supports AOC/Squad. ⬇️
@Planet_Phoebe @RascalPinkish P.S. #14 — Alt-Right Meets Alt-Left
Court filings logging communications btwn Bernie's campaign strategist Devine & DT's frmr campaign mgr Manafort & RU political consultant Kilimnik. Bern endorses alt-left JusticeDems. Operatives.

Alarm bells yet?

Divisive Provocateurs
House Dems publicly confronted AOC's chief of staff for his attack on a congressional Rep.

Why are JDs wasting congressional leaders' precious time, to the level of them having to address their behavior? 18/
