“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) advocated for the Democrat Party to become even more extreme in order to implement her far-left agenda, according to a new interview.
Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks came in a Politico article about the Democrats’ disastrous House races from last week’s election, which saw them lose seats when they were projected to gain them. The article specifically centered around how far-left Democrats claim that their agenda is not what cost moderate Democrats their House seats.
Politico reported that the far-left lawmakers argued that the Democrat Party “never formed an offensive strategy” on key issues like “racial justice.” Apparently, the political Left causing billions of dollars in damage from rioting, looting, calling the police “cancer,” and burning down cities does not count as an “offensive strategy.”

Ocasio-Cortez stressed to Politico that Democrats needed to focus on racism or else they will continue to play defense.
“It’s not just like some moral question about how you confront racism in elections, but it is now an existential crisis for the Democratic Party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. The problem, she said, is Democrats don’t want to talk about race. “Anti-racism plays zero percent of a role in Democratic electoral strategy — zero, explicitly, implicitly. I’m not telling people to virtue signal, but there’s just like no plan for it.”
Ocasio-Cortez said that it was time for Democrats to “take our gloves off with Republicans.”
“We’re always messaging around bipartisanship and how much we love working with Republicans all the time in a lot of these sensitive areas,” she said. “We need to have an unapologetic agenda, have an actual alternative and counter-messaging that is distinct from the Republican Party instead of trying to play to notions of civility. … I just really hope that it gets through to a lot of people that this idea that we can win over white voters on a civility argument is like not a reliable strategy.”
The far-left lawmaker sparked controversy last week when she suggested going after people in the future who supported President Donald Trump.
“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” she wrote. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
