Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is slamming her own party and hinting that she may leave the world of politics behind. During an interview with the liberal-loving New York Times, the New York representative suggested she may leave politics behind because her own party views her as “the enemy.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“I don’t even know if I want to be in politics. You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year,” she added. “It’s the incoming. It’s the stress. It’s the violence. It’s the lack of support from your own party. It’s your own party thinking you’re the enemy.”
“But I’m serious when I tell people the odds of me running for higher office and the odds of me just going off trying to start a homestead somewhere — they’re probably the same,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
“I’ve been begging the party to let me help them for two years. That’s also the damn thing of it. I’ve been trying to help. Before the election, I offered to help every single swing district Democrat with their operation. And every single one of them, but five, refused my help. And all five of the vulnerable or swing district people that I helped secured victory or are on a path to secure victory. And every single one that rejected my help is losing. And now they’re blaming us for their loss,” she said.
“So I need my colleagues to understand that we are not the enemy. And that their base is not the enemy. That the Movement for Black Lives is not the enemy, that Medicare for all is not the enemy. This isn’t even just about winning an argument. It’s that if they keep going after the wrong thing, I mean, they’re just setting up their own obsolescence,” she said.
The Congresswoman claimed that though Democrats seem to be winning on the outside other representatives have been “extremely hostile” towards her far-Left ideas. AOC has recently turned her focus towards flipping the Senate, specifically by helping ensure two Democrat victories in Georgia’s two run-off elections. The first-term lawmaker is hoping to flip the senate so that Democrats will not have to “negotiate” with Republicans.
