AOC is an idiot. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday ripped moderate Democratic leaders who refuse to back far left-leaning party candidates for elected office, insisting they’re ignoring a significant threat of fascism. During a rally in Buffalo, the Queens congresswoman and socialist superstar said such behavior is “embarrassing.” “When a nominee wins, I don’t try to undermine the entire political party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You know why? Because in the grander scheme of things we are facing a very real fascist threat in this country.
The congresswoman was in town to back the mayoral bid of fellow socialist India Walton, who won the Democratic primary but is competing on Election Day against four-term incumbent Byron Brown, who is running as a write-in. AOC came to Walton’s defense Tuesday after state Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs argued he shouldn’t have to extend his support to Democratic candidates in every case and then made a controversial comparison between Walton and David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klan leader.
