Well, at least they admit it now.
This is not unlike the situation with Obama who like the current “socialist” rising red star also came from a kind of sketchy upperclassish upbringing. (Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is not a product of the Bronx as she claimed but of ritzy Westchester County New York – she lied on her bio and to voters. Obama went to the “best” prep school in Hawaii, Columbia, and then went to Chicago for “street cred.”)
Many would love an Obama redux, and that is exactly the route it looks like Tom Perez, the head of the DNC who was hand picked by Obama, wants to pursue apparently.
The Dems want to go full on socialism and full on identity politics. In other words they are going to pursue a collectivist/tribalist agenda. A 3rd world kind of politics.
Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez said in an interview on the “Bill Press Show” that Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “the future of the party.”
Liberal host Bill Press brought up Ocasio-Cortez’s defeat of Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.), the current chair of the House Democratic Caucus, to become the Democratic nominee for New York’s 14th Congressional District.
“Twenty-eight years old, never ran for office before, big progressive. Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders reporter,” Press said.
Man, we beat these economic illiterates a generation ago. But the temptation of something for nothing, and the human propensity for envy and indeed evil are great. Guess we’ll have to beat the Communists yet again.
