Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Putting Her Radicalism on Full Display

Of all the lawmakers in the U.S. Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is one of the most radical of all.

The congresswoman is on record calling for police to be defunded and for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be dismantled. Ocasio-Cortez believes in universal basic income and supported the takedown of the filibuster, since the latter no longer benefits her party’s senators.

Whenever Ocasio-Cortez is called out for her horrible takes and atrocious policies, she claims the person is either racist or trying to date her.

Now, the congresswoman has sunk to a new low in attacking a moderate within her own party, per Red State.

The Progressive vs. Moderate Debate Within the Democrat Party

Collectively, the Democrat Party is an extremist organization in the United States today. However, there are still certain moderate Democrats in office, namely Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).

As one of the most radical leftists in Congress, Ocasio-Cortez despises both Manchin and Sinema. She’s bashed both moderate Democrats in the past; however, within the last several days, the congresswoman has unleashed new attacks on Sinema.

It is Ocasio-Cortez’s view that Sinema needs to be primaried in 2024, due to her support for the Senate filibuster. In fact, last year, when Democrats tried to take down the filibuster, Sinema and Manchin voted with GOP senators, thus keeping the measure intact.

Ocasio-Cortez claims that repealing the filibuster would let Democrats codify Roe v. Wade, in addition to passing many other segments of the radical left’s agenda. She views Sinema as an obstructionist for not blindly voting across party lines.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Democrat is on record noting her support for the filibuster and the role it plays in Congress. Like Manchin, Sinema maintains that she won’t be supporting the removal of this measure.

Working Against Her Own Interests

Ocasio-Cortez clearly wants the Democrat Party to be the dominant party in America. Yet, by ostracizing the moderate Democrats in the coalition, the congresswoman is narrowing her own party’s ranks.

Manchin is being courted by Republicans to join the GOP, for instance. There’s a real possibility that Sinema could follow suit or even leave the Democrats to become an Independent.

Progressives like Ocasio-Cortez believe that going as far left as possible for the sake of “bold change” will help Democrats. All it does is ensure that their support gradually dwindles over time.

Progressives have been warned about this by Democratic strategists; yet, they still insist that radicalism is the best way forward.
