Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Future of America


There is a disturbance in the political force. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez took America by storm on June 26th when she upset Caucus Chair Congressman Joseph Crowley for the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district. She ran the very definition of a grassroots campaign, bringing her message to the literal doorstep of her community, all while refusing campaign donations from special interest groups.

The incumbent, Crowley, was being touted as the heir to Nancy Pelosi’s position as the House Minority Leader (or could’ve been the Majority Leader come November 2018). And the millennial that nobody knew two weeks ago, Ocasio-Cortez – who was barely born outside of the 1990’s – is only a whopping 28-years-old.

Make no mistake, Republicans are terrified, but you’d be mistaken if you didn’t think that the Democratic Party might even be more so. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described democratic socialist – precisely how Bernie Sanders defines his politics. She ran on a platform of medical care being a right, tuition-free college or trade school, a guaranteed job for all and housing for every single person in America. It’s a platform of altruism and benevolence. But if you think these are strictly socialist policies, they’re not.

Stephanie Ruhle of MSNBC accurately described the difference between democratic socialism and just socialism.

These are the policies she’s running under.

These kinds of policies scare the living hell out of fiscal conservative Republicans because it’s the federal government that takes more tax money directly out of their pockets.

So in response to her massive upset, the conservative media did their best to vilify the Bronx native as a radical. It’s an obvious desperate reach to calm their base because she has truly taken the country by storm. And like anybody who has a meteoric overnight rise to fame, they will be vetted and heavily scrutinized, digging up even the smallest semblance of controversy in their past – even if there’s nothing there.

John Cardillo is a conservative host of “America Talks Live” on Newsmax and here was his insensitive tweet about her background.

Here was Ocasio-Cortez’s witty diplomatic response to such an inanely myopic tweet.

Page Six reported a story that tried to bash Ocasio-Cortez by digging up an ex co-worker’s opinion of the budding star. Essentially the co-worker revealed that the Democratic nominee was cheap in tipping her out after a holiday.

And Sean Hannity laughably tried to criticize the Democratic nominee by listing all of her policies as if these altruistic policies for all people were malicious and “downright scary.”

They call it dangerous and she calls it human decency.

Surprisingly, Bill O’Reilly and Glen Beck defended the Ocasio-Cortez against the conservative media.

And Ocasio-Cortez responded to Beck.

But Democrats are also scared.

Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth warned against the Party’s shifting on CNN’s “State of the Union” saying they’re becoming “too far to the left.”

Ocasio-Cortez shut down her logic.

And she’s a hard worker if these shoes are any indication.

She hasn’t won the House seat yet but polls had her down as many as 36 points going into the primaries and she beat Crowley by 15 points, which is a staggering 51-point swing.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the future of America and it’s time for Democrats to embrace her because she’s coming for Republicans.
