It seems like just this weekend we did a post on HuffPost’s Ashley Feinberg tweeting about how scared conservatives are of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who last week won her New York City congressional district’s Democratic primary.
That fiction seems to bring liberals comfort, and now Jay Willis, writing at GQ, is chronicling the terror that Republicans are feeling since the Democratic Socialist’s primary victory.

“The attacks on her authenticity reek of desperation” is apparently a reference to the “tough girl from the Bronx” who actually grew up in tony Yorktown Heights, a suburb in Westchester County.
But is it really desperation and terror that Republicans are feeling because they have no way to counter Ocasio-Cortez’s platform, which includes the abolishment of ICE, guaranteed federal jobs for all, housing as a human right, higher education for all, and so on?

Oh well I guess if GQ thinks so it must be true…

Aren't most of your magazine's advertisers capitalist luxury brands? Maybe you could start running ads for government bread and socialist marching uniforms instead.

Actually, they're all laughing their asses off. An open borders socialist to the left of Bernie Sanders who can't run for President until 2028 at the earliest? Dream come true for Trump.

Free housing for the homeless.
A guaranteed minimum income for all.
She’s a walking, talking republican commercial.

Actually, it's the anger of the generations who brought the Iron Curtain down after it had starved and tortured millions of people, now seeing the term socialism blithely bandied around. https://t.co/aF99GECl09

You mean about the rise of an ideology that was responsible for over 100 million deaths in the 20th century? Can’t imagine why anyone would be nervous. https://t.co/mVzYfCMnXk

Well Socialism is a nasty business. Concern is warranted.
