Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent an email to her key supporters… and it’s about as insane as you’d expect from the avowed socialist running as a Democrat in New York’s far-left 14th district.
First, she accuses Republicans of being “white supremacists” and “cold-hearted monsters”:
“Six days from now, we can defeat the brutal white supremacist forces of anti-Semitism, anti-immigrant nativism, and racism. We can hold accountable the cold-hearted monsters who have repeatedly attacked our health care. We can send a message to the bigots and billionaires that this country belongs to all of us. We can win if we show up on November 6. We must end Republican control of Congress and begin to reclaim our nation.”
She then makes sure to politicize Saturday’s mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh:
“A Democratic majority will not bring back the eleven Jewish people in Pittsburgh, massacred while they prayed. Or the two Black people gunned down days before at a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky. It won’t fully stop the relentless attacks against immigrants in America.
But on Sunday evening, Pittsburgh mourners—angry and broken-hearted like us—chanted ‘Vote! Vote! Vote!’ They understand the magnitude of the midterm election six days from today: that it affords us the chance to forge a powerful bulwark against Donald Trump’s hate and hold accountable the Republicans who have been complicit in every step of his toxic, self-serving, and destructive agenda. We must offer a path out of the darkness.”
And she also finds time to brag about her campaign accomplishments:
“The power of this grassroots organizing isn’t abstract to me; it is the foundation of our movement. From the first day of our campaign, I walked and walked and walked. I walked until I wore holes through my shoes and my feet were soaked. Hundreds of people from my community joined me, and together we knocked on over 120,000 doors.
And then something extraordinary happened: We won. Campaigns like ours aren’t supposed to win. But we did. And we can win again on Tuesday. Across the nation, progressives are on the verge of doing the impossible.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is expected to win by a massive margin in the far-left district, against only nominal opposition.
