LURCHING LEFT: Ocasio-Cortez Calls on Progressives to ‘Primary’ Centrist Democrats

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.20.18

Incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ruffled feathers within her own party this week; urging liberal candidates to “primary” centrist Democrats to advance the party’s progressive agenda.

Cortez and campaign staffers were speaking with left-leaning activists during a video conference call over the weekend when she urged supporters to run against moderate legislators to promote her key issues; including “Medicare for all” and free college tuition.

“Long story short, I need you to run for office,” said Cortez. “All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves.”

“We need new leaders, period,” added chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti. “We gotta primary folks.”

“I don’t think people who are taking money from oil and gas companies should be drafting climate legislation,” Cortez said.

Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left New York voters scratching their heads this week; bizarrely suggesting she will be “inaugurated” should she win her Congressional race and will eventually be “signing” bills into law.

Cortez was speaking with supporters Tuesday when she hailed the progressive movement that ushered her towards the Democratic Party’s nomination earlier this year; saying “what we have accomplished is such a massive responsibility.”

“That is the situation we have in our governance… There’s a lot of folks who don’t want to believe anymore. That’s why what we have accomplished is such a massive responsibility,” said the Democratic hopeful.

“It doesn’t mean you get everything tomorrow. As much as I would love that, I would love to get inaugurated January 3rd [and] January 4th we are signing health care, we’re signing this,” she added.
