Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has established a reputation for her fringe, far-left views. She has proposed, among other ideas, government-run, universal healthcare and tax increases up to 70 percent. She recently had a phone conversation with a radical, left-wing, British, anti-Semitic politician.
Jeremy Corbyn, the crazy Brit referenced above stated on Sunday, “Great to speak to @AOC on the phone this evening and hear first-hand how she’s challenging the status quo.” Corbyn wrote on Twitter. “Let’s build a movement across borders to take on the billionaires, polluters, and migrant baiters, and support a happier, freer and cleaner planet.” (TheHill)
Among the examples of Corbyn’s radical Anti-Semitism was his visit to the grave of The Munich terrorists in Tunisia, as he layed a wreath there. He has also referred to terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah as his friends. He has also compared Israel’s control of the West Bank to the Nazi occupation of Europe during World War II.
This is who AOC is palling around with. This shows a scary trend developing in the American left, as they seem to be headed toward European style, leftist anti-Semitism and Socialism. This should concern everyone in America. The radical left in this country wants a tax of 70 -90 percent for the wealthy and some have questioned whether the constitution is still fully relevant to them. This identity politics on steroids is a threat to America and in the words of today’s liberals, “a threat to our democracy.”
