Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez The New Face Of The Democrat Party?
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently upset Cong. Joe Crowley in NY Cong. District 14. She hasn’t been elected to office yet, but some are already calling her the new face of the Party. Interesting.
None other than Tom Perez, the Democratic National Committee chairman proclaimed this in an interview.
Of course, Bernie Sanders, a self-avowed Socialist, also proclaimed her to be the new face of the Party. That wasn’t surprising, as she had been an organizer in New York for Bernie’s Presidential primary campaign against Hillary Clinton.
Like Obama, she is well-spoken, and also like Obama, she talks in glowing generalities about ‘change” and Social Justice.
Here is an interview she did with Now This:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) member. The DSA is the new face of the Socialist Party of America. The DSA is no longer a political party, but rather an organization promoting socialism. It works mainly through the Democratic Party.
The DSA is anti-capitalism. Period. Vox has a useful article on Ocasio-Cortez and the DSA here.
It isn’t surprising to see Bernie Sanders supporting her, nor to see Tom Perez gushing over her. Both are Far Left in their political beliefs. Now we can see, with Crazy Maxine Waters (Mad Maxine), Nancy Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren, (among others), that the Democrat Party is drifting further and further towards socialism, even as the country as a whole is becoming more conservative. Thus it isn’t surprising, at least to me, that Ocasio-Cortez is indeed being called the new face of the Democrat Party. Sad, perhaps, but true.
