What to Expect From Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

No Longer the Party of JFK

The so-called progressives, otherwise known as the radical left, has clearly gained clout in the Democrat party. The party of JFK no longer asks what you can do for your country. In a sign of the times, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described “Democratic Socialist,” defeated mainline Democrat Joseph Crowley in the primary election for the nomination. She then went on to win the election on Tuesday, making the transformation of the Democrat party complete.

Radical Left Wing Outsider

Ocasio-Cortez worked on Senator Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and was a staffer for the infamous Senator Ted Kennedy. Kennedy’s claim to fame was leaving a young woman to drown and authoring an anti-American immigration policy. Cortez grew up in Westchester County and is not a native to the Queens district she now claims to represent.

Cortez, who ran against a Republican professor, is representative of the Democrat party’s embrace of the far left. A registered member of The Democratic Socialists of America, she is far from an America First candidate. On immigration, for example, she wishes to abolish ICE. She actively undermines immigration law by calling places where illegal aliens are held as “black sites.” This is the language of the radical open borders left.

On the Middle East conflict, she favors Palestinians. After the use of force in defending their borders in Israel, Cortez tweeted "This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can't be silent about this anymore." Clearly, she believes in a borderless world without the concept of a nation-state and defending its borders.

She has also spoken at a Black Lives Matter rally which is a radical group which has among other things called for the killing of cops. Black Lives Matter famously chanted “pigs in a blank.” They have been linked to violence and unrest throughout America and like most left-wing movements view America as an unfair and racist place.

Open Socialist Now a Member of Congress

Clearly, this Queens Congresswoman represents a new wave of radicalism in the Democrat party. The Democrats have become a party which disrespects law enforcement, advocates for open borders and are hostile to the very notion of a nation state. Socialism has now made its way openly into American politics.
