Campaigning with aging Communist and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in Iowa over the weekend, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dismissed concerns from establishment Democrats that radicals like herself and Sanders are moving the Democrat Party “too far left.” Instead, she claimed they are “bringing the party home.”
“When people try to accuse us of going too far left — we’re not pushing the party left,” Ocasio-Cortez, otherwise known as AOC, told a crowd in Coralville, Iowa. “We are bringing the party home.”
“Are you all ready for a revolution?” she added. “I sure am.” So are her fellow freshmen representatives known as “The Squad”: Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — extremists all. Not to mention older radicals like Sanders and his competitor Elizabeth Warren.
That’s because the Democrat Party has become the party of rebranded Communism. Their aim is the “fundamental transformation,” as Barack Obama notoriously put it, of the United States, including its economic transformation from capitalism to socialism.
