Extremist Ocasio-Cortez Objects to Being Called Extremist

November 11, 2022

Friday on CNN’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) said she believes it is incorrect to compare Republicans and Democrats’ extreme members.

Wallace asked, “Do people want both parties to move from the fringes, from the extremes back to the center?”

AOC replied, “I think a lot of people in this country may say yes, but it’s important for us to dig into the substance of what that actually means.”

She continued, “As someone who is often, I think, characterized as extreme, I, of course, would object to that. I do not believe that I am as extreme in the way that Marjorie Taylor Greene on the Republican side is extreme. The idea that there is an equating of believing in someone who believes in guaranteed universal health care in the United States was someone who believes that undocumented people should incur physical harm are somehow in the same level of extreme is something that I would object to.”

Of course she doesn’t consider herself extreme. Extremists always believe they are in sole possession of the good, the true, and the right, and it’s the other side that is extreme.
