John James is an Iraq combat veteran who attended West Point.
He’s also a Republican Senate candidate seeking to knock off Democrat Debbie Stabenow in Michigan.
Abdul El-Sayed, a failed gubernatorial candidate backed by Democrat Socialist Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, sent James a disparaging tweet.
It didn’t take long for James to flatten her.
From Daily Wire:
Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James fired back at a failed far left candidate in Michigan on Wednesday who attacked him and Donald Trump Jr.
“Thrilled @DonaldJTrumpJr coming to stump for @JohnJamesMI,” Abdul El-Sayed, who was backed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wrote on Twitter. “Nothing describes @MIGOP better than a man who has done nothing of value but mooch off his daddy–who mooched off *his* daddy. No action, just words. Oh, & @KidRock, a confederate flag wrapped has been. G’luck John!”
I'm a West Point grad & Iraq vet w/ 2 masters
My dad: Vietnam vet & entrepreneur
His dad: mason
His dad: sharecropper
His dad: slave.
Mooching? My family never asked for free stuff, just a fair shot. We can't allow the American Dream to be crushed by you, @Stabenow & Socialism https://t.co/u2vl4orM1P

DAMN! Now that’s how you respond!
James appeared on Fox News discussing President Trump’s support:
More from Washington Examiner:
But then comes James’ representation of family and history. He speaks of his father’s service in Vietnam in an era in which racism remained a far more significant problem in American life than it is today. But more than that, James speaks to the great American tradition of social mobility. Today, James is a candidate for Senate who earned that privilege by defeating other GOP primary contestants. James is also a successful businessman and rightly proud of that. But James also proves that American society is never static. James’ grandfather was a mason, his great-grandfather a sharecropper, and his great-great-grandfather was a slave.
Think on that. Think on the fact that James doesn’t revel in the horror of what his ancestors faced but rather chooses to honor them by his own success. And just as James honors his ancestors with his better life and pursuit of a better nation, he honors America for its ability to improve. He loves America for what it has become: still flawed, but a place of freedom for all.
After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice by the Senate, 50-48, Ocasio-Cortez called for the electoral college to be abolished.
Her reason why is absolutely hilarious.
It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F

Wait. Ocasio-Cortez cares about “our democratic republic,” yet doesn’t understand how things work in America?
How about the intent of the Founders?
Yeah. Seems about right.
Reactions from people who can’t believe Ocasio-Cortez will one day represent New Yorkers:
Comrade Ocasio Cortez, maybe you should move to Venezuela and run for office there. We don’t need your “progress” here.

If you're going to get into politics at the very least you should know not only the constitution, but the federalist papers. We don't live in a democratic republic, we live in a constitutional republic. The founders knew of the dangers of democracy.

So begins the left's push for a full democracy in the United States. Of course anyone who knows any history knows that when the majority rule (any majority) it leads to a oppression of the minority. More oppression than any leftist could "claim" exist now in the US. But continue. https://t.co/xjRfZN7jHg
