EXTREMISTS: Democrats Nominate Socialist In NYC, Taking Down Incumbent

Published

on

Democrats in New York City nominated a socialist for the state’s 14th district seat. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran on a socialist platform with the backing of the New York City Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, who celebrated her win by proclaiming “socialism will win.”

Her campaign was based around Bernie Sanders-style messaging of free healthcare, free education, and a jobs guarantee. She also touts her pledge to enact gun control, abolish ICE, and made housing a human rights (somehow).

She will replace 10-term Congressman Joseph Crowley, who was highly anti-Trump, but stuck with standard Democrat talking points. Despite Ocasio-Cortez being a radical socialist, President Donald Trump couldn’t help rubbing it in that Crowley lost.

At 28-years old, Ocasio-Cortez will be one of the youngest people elected to Congress in history. Her win is good for the far-left wing of the Democrat party, and a major loss for the more moderate wing.
