Ocasio-Cortez's Opponent Slams Her For Recruiting Radicals To Make Socialism A Reality

Excerpt:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) decided she won't pay the $250,000 fee that's associated with being a member of the Democratic Party. Her reasoning? The party won't support so-called "insurgent" progressive candidates who challenge incumbents, like Ocasio-Cortez herself.

Scherie Murray, Ocasio-Cortez's Republican opponent, believes this is a prime example that proves AOC is in politics for herself.

"Democrats are frustrated with her," Murray told Fox News' Lisa Booth. "This is just another example of AOC trying to deliver socialism to America and she's trying to recruit radicals to do so. I do think it's a shame she doesn't want to support her own party and be a team player."

Murray said she decided to run because "we're in this fight to combat what we see now as a far-left socialist narrative that's detrimental to America. Democrats are up in arms with her."

Booth pointed out that Murray previously tweeted support for AOC. According to the candidate, she wasn't excited about Ocasio-Cortez winning. She was excited about the fact that someone ousted long-time incumbent Joe Crowley.

"She ousted an incumbent that wasn't in the district," Murray explained. "I plan on being in the district and I have a record of accomplishments, unlike my opponent, who from the time she was elected, has been on her bid for the limelight and have left the constituents of the 14th district abandoned. Queens and the Bronx deserve more. That's why I'm the best candidate, the best messenger, to deliver the message of unity."

While I would hope that politicians would be "in it" for their constituencies and the good of the country...I know, very Pollyannaish of me...I really don't care if she flips the bird to the "The Party." Both major parties are responsible for pretty much forcing the Constitutional ideals of the representative bodies into extinction. Candidates are elected by a constituency, according to the Dems and Reps, to represent the Party, first and foremost. If they happen to actually do any work for their Districts while there, it is purely by accident. Screw them.

Apparently queens and the bronx didn't think so. They elected, or allowed to be elected, a sock puppet with a single digit IQ and a huge ego.

I’ve seen Murray on Fox several times (AOC wouldn’t go near the place....has she EVER been interviewed by anyone from FOX?). And she is sharp....

But it is a hard blue district....lots of socialists it seems....but then again miracles do happen....NOBODY thought a bartender would beat a 10 term swamp 🐀 either....

I remember that Pelosi once said, talking about AOC being elected, something along the lines of a glass of water with a "D" in front of its name could be elected in that district.

AOC is not a democrat. She's a socialist/communist. She's just using the democrats. If she ran with the party she really belongs to she never would have been elected.

You are behind the curve, the Democrat party has been destroyed from within and AOC runs the show.

I'm not an AOC fan, but in this case she's standing on solid ground.

The problem isn't just that the party won't support insurgent candidates against incumbents, but that they blacklist any consultant who works for any primary challenger against an incumbent.

Irrespective of party and ideology, the system gives far too many institutional advantages to incumbents over primary challengars. This is one example of that.

She's the more openly feminine and honest Obama.

When his coronation was finished, they had installed someone who had kept his true agenda hidden until he was in the Oval Office.

He used the Democrats to get the job done to put him in power, but once there, he started running his own plays... or leaving others to do the work while he globetrotted and vacationed.

AOC and her ilk, which there are far too many of them in politics for my taste, all need to be shut out of politics entirely and then sent to whatever country espouses their views so that they may live in harmony with others of their mindset.

Unemployment is at an historic low. Employers can't fill vacancies. Real wages are rising. Maybe not so much in La Idiota's district since she chased away 25,000 jobs.

I'm nearby, but not in AOC's district. She won because of the always looming NYC identity politics. Her district is 46% Hispanic and 18-20% white. She beat party boss and 10 term incumbent Joe Crowley because he got too arrogant.

He thought that having the "D" next to his name was good enough. Crowley didn't even show up to their debate. He sent a latina in his place, thinking that would be good enough.

When AOC beat Crowley in the primary election, only 13% of registered Democrats turned out to vote, and many of them were Hispanic. You do the math.

Crowley was a dismissive, arrogant <censored>. Cortez is a psycho control freak. Yes, the math was there for the next generation bourgeoise.
