In a monologue on her Instagram on Friday about President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moving to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) urged her social media followers to “Let this moment radicalize you.”
“You are the answer. Mass movements are the answer. Millions of people are the answer. You are the answer. And so I need you,” AOC pleaded. “We need you. Even in Congress, we can’t do it alone. So we need you to show up” and “organize in their communities.”
“We have an authoritarian president,” she claimed. “That’s what we have. He has no regard for the dignity of human life. He has no regard for law. He has no regard for justice. He has no regard for anything unless it personally helps him and his power and his money and that of the Republican establishment.
“Let this moment radicalize you,” she continued to rant. “Let this moment really put everything into stark focus because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives. And if anything, tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before.”
