Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Celebrates Communist Way of Doing Business in Congressional Offices


For all her prattling, one thing about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems authentic: she does not want to do anything the American way.

On March first, for instance, she essentially admitted that she is not interested in that whole “representative democracy” part of our system and noted that she runs her office like a communist collective.

On the morning of March 1, she took to Twitter to say:

As an educational organizer, I view it as development.

This country is not supposed to be run by a collective. We hire our congress people through elections. We then expect them to listen to the voters on one hand, then take their knowledge of the people’s needs and ideas and apply them to the information they learn when they get to Washington.

On the other hand, we do not hire a congressional office filled with interns who we don’t know and whose capabilities we have not vetted to “collectively” decide what will be done for the voters.

In her tweet, Ocasio-Cortez is talking about consensus decision making. This is a well-known socialist style of working where the commune (or in AOC’s terminology “the community”) rules by direct democracy.

AOC is no less than talking about a socialist or communist style of governance, here.

Also, remember that Karl Marx and Engels both never considered socialism to be a distinct form of government from communism. They held that socialism was only a stepping stone to a proper communist system.

This is what New York sent to Washington. And if this is really what liberals want, then maybe all those claims about a civil war aren’t that far off?
