New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an Instagram video Friday night and said to the approximate 45,000 followers that were watching, “Let this moment radicalize you,” referring to the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She continued, “Let this moment really put everything into stark focus. Because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives.”
AOC says she made the video to speak to those who were scared and mourning the death of Justice Ginsburg. The video was about 40 minutes long and said it was imperative that Democrats win this November. That sentence right there tells the truth of where her allegiance lies, to the Democrats and not the American people. The Americans should win every election, not a party.
She told her millions of followers that they need to get behind Joe Biden and “focus on voting for Joe Biden. I don’t care if you like him or not. Voting for Joe Biden is not about whether you agree with him. It’s a vote to let our democracy live another day.”
She told of her fear of a future with a Supreme Court controlled by conservatives and said that this vacancy is “earth-shattering” and a “tipping point”. She also said that the person who fills the seat will be the “difference between people have reproductive rights” and their bodies being controlled by the government. She’s worried for the rights of women, but not for the rights of women inside the womb.
AOC also said, “I need you to be ready” and said that it is so important that Democrats keep fighting to win the election and that November is about survival.
