A progressive Democratic commentator blasted the party for not doing enough before to prevent the Supreme Court from potentially striking down Roe v. Wade, saying she is “done” with her fellow members.
“Young Turks” co-host Ana Kasparian on Tuesday bashed her own party after a draft opinion from the Supreme Court was leaked that indicated plans to overturn the 1973 landmark abortion ruling.
“If we’re going to sit around and wait for our elected lawmakers to protect us from these religious zealots and these right-wing authoritarians, man we have another thing coming,” said “Young Turks” co-host Ana Kasparian on Tuesday.
“How many times do we need to be disappointed by them? I’m done with them.”
Kasparian clarified that she does not speak for everyone at the network before repeating “I’m done with them.”
“Completely. The Democratic Party, every single one of them, that includes the Square. I don’t care anymore,” the progressive commentator continued. “They have not delivered. They have not delivered. I’m done. It’s time to organize, create organizations that get women and get people in this country what they need, people who are willing to pick up the slack for these disgusting, feckless, corrupt politicians.”
Earlier in the show, Kasparian started off blasting the Republican party for opposing various Democratic-backed policies such as paid family leave as they seek to roll back or ban abortion across the country.
“It’s amazing that not one Democrat has shown 1% of the passion Ana has today?” her co-host Cenk Uygur asked.
“They don’t care, they’re fine,” Kasparian shouted, launching into her attack on Democrats.
“They’re all so old, they don’t have to worry about it affecting them and if they’re young enough where it would affect them, they’ll get their abortion, okay? They’re trading their individual stocks enriching themselves, they’re good,” she said. “They’re good. They don’t care about you. Make sure you understand that you feel it in your bones. They don’t care about you at all.”
She blasted Democratic fundraising efforts, calling members of the party “losers” for not even successfully passing voting rights legislation.
Kasparian specifically called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saying, “How’s your refrigerator doing? How’s your luxury ice cream doing, okay? How’s all that going for you?”
“Listen, all of the bootlickers for the Democratic Party get so upset at me for telling you the truth about how ineffective and pathetic Democratic lawmakers are,” she continued. “Go ahead and cry about it. ‘Oh, but the real enemies are the Republicans.’ At least Republicans tell us exactly who they are. They don’t even hide their cards. They tell us exactly who they are and what they’re planning on doing.”
The progressive accused Democrats of failing to fight back against Republican policies because “they’re too busy fundraising.”
“Nancy Pelosi’s gonna fundraise. Chuck Schumer – He can’t do away with the filibuster because that would mean that he’d have to apply a little bit of pressure on goons like Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin. ‘Oh, can’t do that. Can’t do that,’” Kasparian said.
She explained why she was hitting at the Democratic party so hard, saying it was because “they deserve it” and “they deceive us,” blasting the lawmakers for saying one thing and doing the opposite.
“Nancy Pelosi, on the record, said we need ‘strong Republicans.’ I bet you do. Nancy, I bet you do. Without the strong Republicans, how would you fundraise, you pathetic, pathetic corporate goon,” she said.
Kasparian also took a hit at President Biden, labeling him a “freaking liar” and blasting him for not taking action to cancel student loan debt.
“You don’t know what your job title entitles you to? You don’t know? Why are you president?” She said. “Why did you nominate an education secretary? What’s the whole point?”
The “Young Turks” co-host continued her sharp criticism of the Democratic Party on Wednesday, saying it has “failed us on everything.”
“I’m supposed to give this party, which has failed us on everything, a round of applause?” She said. “I’m not going to apologize for ineffective, lazy, corrupt, weakness.”
