It seems that AOC’s political views are even more radical than previously thought.
She is a card-carrying member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
And not only that, but her former top aide was just revealed as a member of the Communist Party.
The line between socialism and communism is very thin, and in many cases non-existent. Socialists do not believe in capitalism and are much closer to the ideology of the former Soviet Union.
That’s why, when AOC and Bernie Sanders claim that they just want the U.S. to be more like Scandinavia, they are lying.
Scandinavian countries have big “social safety nets” but they are not socialist or communist. They have not eliminated private property. People can start businesses and work their way up in society.
But in the world of AOC and Bernie Sanders, no one would own anything. Everyone would live at the mercy of a centralized government that enforces total “equity.”
Both politicians try to hide this dark side of their ideology, but in AOC’s case it seems to have slipped out.
One of her former top aides, Justine Medina, has been promoted to the position of co-chair of the New York Communist League.
Medina, who uses female pronouns but is a biological male, is trying to overthrow capitalism and make the United States into a version of the former Soviet Union.
According to Fox News, “A former aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is now a senior official within the New York State Communist Party.
“Records, first reported on by The New York Post, show 33-year-old Justine Medina worked for Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign for much of 2020, earning around $35,000.
“After working for the congresswoman, Medina was named ‘Co-Chair of the New York Communist League’ by the People’s World, a publication of the Communist Party.”
Medina is extremely proud of his status as a communist too. In one of his posts on Twitter, he has this to say: “Haha, well, I *am* a Communist, but work for AOC & helped start Queens DSA’s Electoral WG, so I def see utility in working on the Dem ballot line!”
According to the article, he also said elsewhere that “the path to communism will be ‘unkind’ to those who ‘block progress.’”
The article goes on to lay out the horrors of communism.
“While modern-day adherents of communism have tried to water it down, the ideology has been the driving force behind many political movements throughout the 20th century, killing upwards of 100 million people. The Soviet Union’s communist dictator Joseph Stalin starved millions of Ukrainians in the 1930s. China’s communist dictator Mao Zedong led the Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, the death toll from which is estimated to have been above 40 million. Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge communist leader, Pol Pot, imposed brutal programs during his brief rule in the 1970s that are estimated to have killed about one-fourth of his own country’s population.”
This is the future that AOC is seeking to impose upon the United States if she manages to seize power.
