Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to assert herself as the leader of the new Democratic party and if she gets her way, it will be the most radical major political party in American history.
The young socialist firebrand holds enormous sway over a media that she has enchanted and wields the formidable social media clout that over 2 million die-hard followers on Twitter provide while she asserts her power as a freshman member of Congress.
On Saturday, AOC showed up at the Women’s March in New York City despite the raging controversy over the blatant anti-Semitism expressed by leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory and thrilled the crowd with the type of demagoguery that has inspired many a socialist revolutionary.
She also refused to address the hostility toward Jews that has now become so pervasive in the organization that the DNC, The Southern Poverty Law Center and old guard Dems like Debbie Wasserman Schultz all denounced by pulling their support from the Women’s March.
Check out how expertly that she deflects the question from a reporter and turns it into an attack on President Trump.

Via The Daily Wire, “Ocasio-Cortez Embraces Anti-Semitic Women’s March After DNC, Top Dems Cut Ties”:
On Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) embraced the anti-Semitic Women’s March just days after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other left-wing organizations cut ties with the movement over blatant anti-Semitism.
The anti-Semitism and racism within the Women’s March is so pervasive that the group’s founder, Theresa Shook, called on all the co-chairs to step down for allowing “anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform.”
Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory recently defended calling Louis Farrakhan the “greatest of all time,” and refused to affirm Israel’s right to exist in two separate interviews.
Anti-Semitism within the Women’s March is so blatant that the DNC and far-left Emily’s List cut ties with the organization last week.
She was also confronted by conservative Laura Loomer over her embrace of anti-Jewish groups like Hamas which she also refused to answer.

This is not your father’s Democratic party or even the party of a few short years ago but rather one of extremism, bigotry, hate and most of all, the ideas of Karl Marx repackaged for a younger generation of Americans who are ignorant of history and susceptible to siren song of AOC.
Conservative actor James Woods recently called Ocasio-Cortez the “most dangerous person in America” via Twitter because of her ability to appeal to a significant chunk of the country.

Correction, George. We fear 100 million numbskulls embracing the failure of socialism yet again, led by the most ill-informed pied piper imaginable. Good call. https://t.co/o4qgmB03f2

The allure of socialism and a new generation of angry, entitled millennials is a very dangerous combination and instead of holding AOC accountable for her tacit endorsement of anti-Semites the media is only allowing her to accrue more power with each passing news cycle.
