Update July 17, 2018- I based the essay below on the assumption that a woman who graduated from Boston University was not an imbecile. However, recent embarrassing interviews reveal the jaw-dropping stupidity of this woman. Nevertheless, I stand by the bigger picture of the essay.
July 4, 2018- by Steven E. Greer, MD
Soon-to-be U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Queens 14th congressional district was a science student in high school, winning science fair projects, who then went on to Boston University for a degree in economics. She then became a genuine working-class lady trying to make a living in Manhattan as a bartender.
However, because she is a self-proclaimed socialist, the Republicans are having a field day. They are using unflattering photos of her with wide crazy stares making her “The face of the new Democrat party” It is just blatant dog-whistle-racism to scare white rednecks in Trump states.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won because people despise the establishment Democrats, like the fat old white man she defeated, or Crooked Hillary with MS, or Never-Retire Pelosi, or Cry’in Chuck Schumer, or Don Cuomo, etc. Her win had nothing to do with her socialist politics. The people voting for her in Queens don’t understand the difference of between communism or capitalism. I doubt even she understands what she stands for.
Recall, Hillary had Cuomo and the DNC help her rig the 2016 primaries in New York and California to avoid embargoing losses to Bernie Sanders. They did this by blocking hundreds of thousands of young voters from being able to vote. It was one of the biggest crimes in American history and few are talking about it. Donna Brazile, head of the DNC at the time, admits to all of this in her book.
The important message to be heard by this young lady, who never ran for anything before, getting elected to congress, defeating a man who many thought would be the next Speaker of the House, is that the Democrats are finally having their own Civil War, just as the Republicans had the Tea Party and then Trump revolts to ouster the likes of Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Jim Flake, Bob Corker, and Paul Ryan. Trump and the populists should exploit this infighting.
During one of his hugely popular rallies, President Trump should continue to say nice things about Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez. It will alienate the people who still control the Democrat party and who are orchestrating the mid-term elections. Those are the heads of the snake to go after now. The target should be the people still in charge.
Trump has good political instincts and knows all of this this. He has already been cleverly praising Bernie Sanders at the expense of Crooked Hillary. His initial comments about Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez have been favorable too.
Heck, Master Troller Trump should have a summit in the Oval Office with Democrat socialists. Heads would explode.
