Ocasio-Cortez complains about being in ‘the same party’ as Joe Biden but it’s really the other way around
Biden is among the last of old-school Democrats because the party now belongs to the socialists…

(TNS) We’ve often written about the transformation of the Democrat Party from a covert far-Left entity into one that is now openly far-Left.
The Democrat Party of JFK died a long time ago — killed off by the big government liberalism of the Great Society introduced by his successor, LBJ. It took a few decades, but eventually the only thing the Garbage Party offered the country was more dependence on Washington and less individual freedom.
Today, after eight years of Barack Obama, who governed as much as he could like we imagine Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin would have, the Democrats have become anti-American, anti-Constitution, anti-individual liberty, and anti-capitalism.
What’s more, they’re not even hiding it. After all, people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib weren’t attracted to the Republican Party, were they?
In fact, the only problem with the Democrat Party is that there are still not enough socialists and Communists in the ranks, though that is changing rapidly.
During a recent interview, the New York Post notes, Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) complained that she shares a party with former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner for the 2020 presidential nomination.
She was asked what role she imagined she would play in Congress were Mr. Gaffetastic to stumble into the White House and suddenly find himself in the Oval Office.
“Oh, God,” Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed. “In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are.” Ocasio-Cortez’s comments were made during a recent interview with New York Magazine that will be published later this week.
Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential run, also said the Democratic Party caters too much to representatives who flipped districts in 2018 that had voted for President Trump in 2016.
“For so long, when I first got in, people were like, ‘Oh, are you going to be basically a tea party of the left?’ And what people don’t realize is that there is a tea party of the left, but it’s on the right edges, the most conservative parts of the Democratic Party,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez continued to say that criticizing the party is frowned upon but credits herself with creating the ability for some members to speak their minds.
“I think I have created more room for dissent, and we’re learning to stretch our wings a little bit on the left,” she said.
Here’s the thing: She doesn’t share a party with Biden; Biden shares a party with her.
The Garbage Party is openly, brazenly, and purposefully skewing socialist/communist. Biden isn’t a Commie like Bernie, but the party clearly isn’t trending more “moderate” or conservative.
Which means that the Democrat Party is trending further away from the system of government bequeathed us by our founders. And proudly so.
