Be thankful. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf.
It’s nice to know that not every Democrat has latched onto the treason train of Communism, although there are far, far too many who have already succumbed to its siren call.
The socialist pulled off a stunning victory last month in New York, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other Communists win Democratic primaries. So far, so bad.
We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country.
Check your state primary date & VOTE August 7th + 11th.

Looks like your "coming out party" didn't go as planned. None of your endorsed candidates won. Might have something to do with the fact that 3 generations of #Veterans served, fought, & died to prevent your #Socialist ideology from coming to #America pic.twitter.com/ob3XhmL5YH

Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii.
El-Sayed was spanked in his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 51.8 percent to 30.5 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times.
Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 18 percent of the vote.
Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 56.7 percent to 36.9 percent, the Times results show.
Meanwhile, Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that an upper-middle class “with soccer moms with two vans and stuff” no longer exists in America, The Daily Caller reported.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez discussed Democratic strategies and her idea of socialism in America during an interview for “Pod Save America.”
“Their heyday was in the ‘90s when kids had like Furbies and you had like soccer moms with two vans and stuff,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said. “That’s not America anymore!”
The New York Bolshevik, who unseated long-time incumbent, Rep. Joe Crowley, suggested the older members of her party are out of touch. She said they don’t understand how rising income inequality has shaped the political landscape.
During the conversation, the rising Democratic star said her party is not investing in younger candidates.
She said that established Democrats are “feverishly working” on their own re-elections, but neglecting to support rising younger campaigns is why Republicans are winning. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez explained that these older representatives relied on a demographic that no longer exists.
“A lot of these folk were in their political heyday in third-way ‘90s politics,” she said, “I think that like politically this upper-middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper-middle class does not exist anymore in America.”
When asked what the difference was between capitalists who want a regulated free market and her brand of socialism, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said there wasn’t much separating them. She explained that someone who wanted a “pure free market” couldn’t stand for the Affordable Care Act or tuition-free college.
The democratic socialist argued that capitalism wasn’t the only way to invest in the country, and Americans didn’t need to rely solely on corporations to build wealth.
“When we, for example, decided to take the affirmative and bold step into building an interstate highway system, into electrifying this country, into providing tuition-free public K-12 education, those are not capitalist things,” she said.
Never mind that any of those things don’t actually create wealth, but assist capitalist endeavors in making wealth, and are thereby simply nothing more than capitalist-fed creations, not socialist programs. No, we wouldn’t want to trouble her Marxist mind with reality.
