Socialist Ocasio-Cortez falsely claims GOP ‘terrified’ of her politics, issues warning about libraries

On Thursday, Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a somewhat cryptic tweet falsely claiming that Republicans are “terrified” of her far-left politics and issued a warning about libraries.

“If you think the GOP is terrified of my politics now, just wait until they find out about public libraries,” she said in a tweet that has since received over 114,000 likes.

“That sent chills up our spines for sure,” Twitchy said.

Others weighed in, in an apparently unsuccessful bid to educate the young New York socialist about the dangers of Socialism and Marxism.

But, someone countered, the existence of libraries somehow proves that we already have socialism.

But that not how this works.  For far too many low-information leftists, anything provided by the government is an example of socialism.  What leftists fail to realize, however, is that those things are funded by taxpayers whose money is confiscated by the government.


Jeff Dunetz, a blogger who runs The Lid, stated:

No, it’s not…

One person told Ocasio-Cortez:


Others basically said the same:


Probably because leftists think it hasn’t been done right…

Then there’s this:


Welcome to Venezuela…

Just think — THIS is the future of the Democrat Party, according to DNC boss Tom Perez.  No wonder so many are “walking away” from it right now.  Maybe they should #RunAway.  Fast.
