Socialist sweetheart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is determined to put her mark upon Congress now that she won her election in New York’s 14th Congressional District and as is her tendency, she continues to churn out the hyperbole.
The 29-year-old taco bar revolutionary is very impressed that she managed to easily win a heavily minority district that gobbled up her campaign rhetoric of abolishing ICE and giving out free stuff to everyone, a message the resonated with voters.
In fact, Ocasio-Cortez is so impressed with herself that she compared the win to such historical events as the establishment of civil rights and the moon landing.

Via The Washington Times, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likens her election win to America’s historic moon landing”:
Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sees her recent election victory as a watershed moment in world history akin to landing on the moon.
The New York Democrat told reporters on Friday that once again the U.S. is “at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss” that requires citizens of a special kind of mettle. She says that such an elite group exists — and that she and other newly elected Democrats are in it.
“This is not just about a Green New Deal, this is about a new deal for the United States of America,” the 29-year-old said at a “Sunrise Movement” press conference in Washington. “Because in every moment where our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment, when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss, and we did not know if we could be capable of saving ourselves, we have.”
“We’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon,” she added. “We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”
Well, she’s definitely a moonbat.
