Detente

There was a possibility of minor detente between the left and the right yesterday when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted the following to Twitter.

To which Ted Cruz replied.

So there was the possibility of people with two diametrically opposed political world views coming together to combat an unjust situation. Instead of building a coalition AOC replied with the following.

AOC forgets that Ted Cruz was also in the Capitol during the protests and riots of January 6. He was at risk of being injured or killed just as much as she was, especially given that as more information comes out we find that there were people of many political leanings entering the Capitol.

His actions were limited questioning the Electoral votes of certain states which is no more than what Democrats have done in many prior elections.

So, which party wants civilized discourse?
