I suspect that narrative is being pushed by those with a vested interest in seeing the Democratic party split and fight amongst themselves; the media certainly keeps this theme of "The Squad vs Everyone" up because anything involving AOC means clicks. But, reality?
I do agree that AOC (and the Justice Dems, which I've mentioned before in discussions on AOC) are poison for the party. She's made some good points in a few Congressional hearings, but she's done nothing to warrant the extensive media coverage she's gotten. I think it makes her seem like she has more power than she really has, and it distorts what's really happening with legislation and Democratic leadership on the hill.
