DNC Chair Tom Perez Declares Socialist Ocasio-Cortez “The Future Of Our Party”

The already-fractured DNC is having an identity crisis. While establishment Democrats Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Chuck Schumer (NY) battle it out with Maxine Waters (CA) over anti-Trump activism, the party is now mounting support for their new rising star – Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, after the 28-year-old political neophyte unseated the 4th most powerful Democrat in Congress last month in an upset primary win.

Ocasio-Cortez, a dues-paying member of Democratic Socialists of America (whose leadership has been openly calling for communism) – says that the US should abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), while also claiming that illegal aliens deserve a “right of passage” into the United States.

And despite being called out recently for projecting a blue collar “girl from the Bronx” image while growing up in a wealthy enclave, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez told progressive radio host Bill Press Tuesday that Ocasio-Cortez represents “the future of our party.”

Press: There was a primary in several states. Your home state of Maryland and also up in New York where the 4th most powerful Democrat in the United States, Congressman Joe Crowley was knocked out by a young woman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez­­­ – 28 years old – never ran for office before – big progressive – calls herself a Democratic socialist, actually like Bernie Sanders did – she was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and in Maryland, Ben Jealous another strong progressive wins the Democratic nomination for governor. What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?

Perez: Well, my daughters – I have 3 kids, two of whom are daughters, one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because, you know, she really represents the future of our party. She ran a spirited campaign.

And while “Democratic insurgents” (as the Washington Post calls them) want to abolish ICE, the rest of the Democratic party is not behind her. Not even Bernie Sanders would commit to the notion.

And until Ocasio-Cortez clarifies her positions vs. the Democratic Socialists of America, this is the future of the Democratic party.

  1. Excuse me! The future of your party is someone who ran as a socialist in a district that is 90% welfare? How sad for your party.

  2. Once again the Dumbocrat Party is showing their collective stupidity in allowing the “Head Idiot” to hail a welfare queen and socialist. Socialism cannot and does not work anywhere in the world. The real American people do not want to be the next Venezuela, oh have you been too dumb to realize this. Read a quality and true news story once in a while.

  3. Are these idiots trying to lose? They want us to be a Socialists welfare state? Socialism Sucks, I have been in Socialist and Communist Countries, the people in these countries have no personal Freedom, None, everyone in town knows what you are doing, No Privacy whatsoever, none. You are expected to be where you are supposed to be at a designated time. If you are an Engineer you will be paid the same as the guy digging the ditch. The company you work for does Not determine how much you are paid, that is up to the government.

  4. This is truly a dumb ass woman. Where does she think all the moneys going to come from to pay for all this from the moon?Certainly not from all the illegals which is all we’re going to have. Good luck with that.

  5. tom and ocasio are truly COMMIE PIGS GO AWAY OR WE WILL SEND YOU AWAY WITH obamie and clinton , and a couple hundred deep staters !!!!!!!!!signed THE PATRIOT !!!!!!!!!!
