New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not exactly winning friends and influencing people in the real America.
The Democratic Socialist many touted as the new face of the party has quickly become a liability as she demonstrated again by ignorantly declaring that soccer moms driving minivans is “not America anymore.”
Asked about Democrats’ view of her brand of socialism and whether the party believes her policies are a “recipe for failure,” Ocasio-Cortez launched an attack on national Democrats during an interview on the podcast “Pod Save America.”
“The whole country is further left than Congress. The whole country,” she claimed on the liberal podcast. “The electorate is way further left than Congress, and we have low voter turnout.”
The old Democrats in the House, she argued, are out of touch and simply stuck in “90s politics.”
“They were campaigning most when we had more of an American middle class,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This upper-middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper-middle class does not exist anymore in America.”
“Their heyday was in the ’90s when kids had, like, Furbys, and soccer moms had, like, two vans. That’s not America anymore!” she added.
America, it turns out, did not appreciate that assessment from the upstart socialist.
The more she speaks the more ignorant she appears

You’re right, it’s probably soccer moms in SUVs https://t.co/XDxgFvIzkk

Soccer mom in Suburban here. One income family. Rural. Christian. And last time I looked, American.

Ya know, I don’t think a socialist from the Bronx gets to define what is and is not America, much less what should and should not be America. https://t.co/BJJSpvf2yH

That’s a formula for a blue wave:

I just hope that Ocasio-Cortez keeps speaking out in support of other Democrats running in the midterms! That way the GOP is guaranteed to win in a landslide! Every candidate she supported today LOST. America definitely does not want anything to do with Socialism! #MAGA #Trump
