(ThePatriotSource.com)- Could far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez be looking to leave politics? According to a recent interview with the New York Times, it seems that she might be…at least, if she doesn’t get her own way.
Over the weekend, AOC even suggested that her party, the Democrats, had treated her as “the enemy.” Instead of celebrating a possible Joe Biden win, AOC expressed her belief that the Democrats should embrace her radical socialist agenda or risk losing them.
AOC was also asked whether she would consider a run for Senate in the next couple of years, with the prospect of Chuck Schumer being up for re-election in 2022 and Kirsten Gillibrand in 2024.
But AOC isn’t sure yet.
“I genuinely don’t know,” she said. “I don’t even know if I want to be in politics. You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year…It’s the incoming…it’s the stress…it’s the violence.”
Violence? What violence?
The violence the country has seen this year has come overwhelmingly from far-left radicals, progressives, and socialists who protested against what they call “systemic racism” in the police. AOC has not been on the forefronts of condemning that violence, so it is unclear what violence she is referencing in the New York Times interview.
“It’s the lack of support from your own party, it’s your own party thinking you’re the enemy,” she added. “But I’m serious when I tell people the odds of me running for higher office and the odds of me just going off trying to start a homestead somewhere – they’re probably the same.”
There are probably lots of people out there hoping she starts a homestead somewhere.
AOC also said that she has been “begging” the party to let her help them for two years and that she has been trying to help. She claims to have offered to help in every swing district, but all but five refused her help.
Perhaps wisely. Could the Democrats have ever even come close to winning without putting someone who could be perceived as a “moderate” at on the ballot this year?
“So I need my colleagues to understand that we are not the enemy,” she added. “And that their base is not the enemy. That the Movement for Black Lives is not the enemy, that Medicare for all is not the enemy.”
Can AOC get the Democratic Party fully behind her radical progressive and socialist vision for America?
