Alexandria OcasioCortez

By Abigail Tracy for 

With Bernie Sanders largely sequestered in Washington, D.C., at the end of last month ahead of the critical Iowa caucuses, the Vermont senator’s campaign deployed what is arguably its greatest weapon: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And traversing the state, Ocasio-Cortez delivered, drawing massive crowds and pushing the message of progressive populism and younger voters that underlies Sanders' campaign. 

Ocasio-Cortez’s celebrity is bigger than politics, delivering a wattage that few campaign surrogates can match. She’s the moment’s definitive leader of youth and the left, often mentioned as a possible candidate for the Senate, or even the presidency in 2024. Ocasio-Cortez has undeniably been a boon to the Sanders campaign—she endorsed him in October, as he recovered from his heart attack, which was crucial to him regaining his momentum. But Ocasio-Cortez’s star power and independence make her a wild card. In Iowa, while AOC didn’t exactly go rogue, her performance stoked some tensions between herself and the Sanders campaign.

Following Ocasio-Cortez’s three-day stint, Sanders’s campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, texted AOC’s campaign manager to express his dissatisfaction with aspects of her performance, according to a source familiar with the exchange. Specifically, the Sanders campaign was miffed that Ocasio-Cortez didn’t mention Sanders by name when she closed out a campaign event at the University of Iowa on a Friday night at the end of last month—a fact that Fox News picked up on. (The Sanders campaign noted that this was one of the first campaign events Ocasio-Cortez did without Sanders, who she typically would introduce at the end of her remarks but he was in Washington, D.C. for the impeachment trial. Any reminder to mention the Senator was “good natured ribbing,” according to the campaign.)

Ocasio-Cortez’s comments about the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Patrol were also seen by some within the Sanders campaign as going too far, straying from Sanders’s stance on the issues in encouraging people not to cooperate with law enforcement agencies, according to this source. 

During an event in Ames, Iowa, Ocasio-Cortez told the crowd, “Organizing is about tipping people off if you start to see that ICE and CBP are in communities to try and keep people safe.” She continued, “I’m not here to reform some of these systems when we talk about immigration. I’m here because Senator Sanders has actually committed to breaking up ICE and CBP. That’s why I’m here.” (Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign declined to comment.)

Abolishing ICE is a major platform plank for AOC and a number of other progressive figures—including Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who have also endorsed Sanders. In the past, Sanders has been for stricter immigration laws than those supported by some of his progressive colleagues, though he’s tacked left more recently. He has previously drawn criticism for comments about “open borders.” 

His ambitious immigration plan now calls for the breakup of CBP and ICE and for the agencies’ current functions to be delegated to other federal agencies, including the State and Treasury departments, as well as the full demilitarization of the southern border. But immigration can be a hot button in states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan where Democrats have to win, and some felt that AOC had gone off script. (The Sanders campaign said Ocasio-Cortez was not off message and how she talks about these issues is how Senator Sanders talks about these issues.)

(The Sanders campaign said no such concerns about Rogan were raised. The campaign also expressed strong appreciation for all that Ocasio-Cortez has done as a surrogate for Sanders on the campaign trail.)

Sanders’s embrace of the endorsement quickly drew criticism from some corners of the left over past transphobic, homophobic, and sexist comments by Rogan. In a statement, Sanders spokesperson Briahna Joy Gray sought to put daylight between the Sanders campaign and Rogan’s views and controversial statements, while asserting that the key to beating Donald Trump will be coalition building. 

“The goal of our campaign is to build a multi-racial, multi-generational movement that is large enough to defeat Donald Trump and the powerful special interests whose greed and corruption is the root cause of the outrageous inequality in America,” Gray said. “Sharing a big tent requires including those who do not share every one of our beliefs, while always making clear that we will never compromise our values. The truth is that by standing together in solidarity, we share the values of love and respect that will move us in the direction of a more humane, more equal world.”

As my colleague Peter Hamby argued, Sanders, with his unrelenting populist message, might be the best positioned of any candidate in the 2020 Democratic field to beat Trump by winning over the white working-class voters that won him the presidency in 2016. An endorsement from Rogan—whose podcast is downloaded millions of times each month—could also go a long way in securing the support of this constituency. Conversely, the “Abolish ICE” message might not be as palatable among these voters as it is in Ocasio-Cortez’s deep-blue New York district.

But Ocasio-Cortez’s value to the Sanders campaign is undeniable. “No one can deny the bounce that AOC gave to Bernie’s campaign when she decided to endorse him. And since she decided to endorse him, she has been out there multiple times—in Iowa, in New Hampshire—and just validating him in a way that has been enormously helpful to the Sanders campaign,” Rebecca Katz, a progressive Democratic strategist, told me. “I think she has done tremendous work for him.”

Ocasio-Cortez was absent from Iowa in the crucial days leading up to the caucuses. But any tensions seem to have been soothed in time for New Hampshire. On Monday night, she headlined a campaign rally with the Strokes in New Hampshire on the eve of the first in the country primary.

Ocasio-Cortez and her team, after all they’d done for Sanders, were said to be annoyed at being called on the carpet. And AOC’s team is also said to have had concerns about radio host Joe Rogan’s controversial unofficial endorsement of Sanders. The Thursday before Ocasio-Cortez’s whirlwind tour of Iowa, Sanders tweeted a video clip of Rogan in which the libertarian-leaning host and comedian said he would “probably vote for Bernie.” “Him as a human being, when I was hanging out with him, I believe in him, I like him, I like him a lot,” Rogan said on an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. 

“What Bernie stands for is a guy—look, you could dig up dirt on every single human being that’s ever existed if you catch them in their worst moment and you magnify those moments and you cut out everything else and you only display those worst moments. 

That said, you can’t find very many with Bernie,” Rogan continued. “He’s been insanely consistent his entire life. He’s basically been saying the same thing, been for the same thing his whole life. And that in and of itself is a very powerful structure to operate from.”

As New  York recovers from FTPIII there are several things that are evident.
When NYPD comes out large they can handle anything. Yesterday was an example of professionalism and power. Despite the ambiguity under which they must operate with these new insane laws, NYPD was able to contain and control ANTIFA.  

Antifa, has been described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government, is responsible for “a level of sustained political street warfare not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s.”

Antifa then has two goals: Destroy political opposition, and silence dissenters.

People of the world must wake up to the fact that there is a war being waged upon us. It takes vast resources to be able to organize these massive manifestations all over the US and the free world.

Antifa doesn’t stand for anything, only against whatever it decides to define as fascist. It does not have meetings, official members, or even leaders. It is made up of dozens, if not hundreds, of left-wing organizations, both at the local and national levels. Each group has its own goals and aspirations — some advocate for animal rights, environmental rights or socialism. The groups come together behind a unifying black mask whenever there is a call to action, spread through word-of-mouth or social media. At that point, the groups abandon their ethos and become part of the mob-like collective that is Antifa.

Leave it to the fascist Left to call themselves anti-fascist.....all these labels they give themselves are the exact opposite of what they are.


We should start by declaring Antifa a Terrorist Organization. A group that uses fascist violence to “combat fascism” is the epitome of contradiction. 


It takes millions of dollars for all these pre printed signs, riot gear, flags, artwork, videos, flags, glue and box cutters (aim for the neck!). 

It takes great deal of manpower for the logistical planning and organization, not to mention the execution

There must be an investigation into the funding of these groups. The major supporters of these groups have an anti-US agenda. Those organizations and major donors are accomplices in these crimes.

Left-wing billionaire George Soros has long standing ties to Antifa through a group called the Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ). They support the Castro Regime, Maduro Regime, Sandinista Nicaragua, North Korea, Palestinian Extremism.

Soros’s philanthropy, known at the time as the Open Society Institute, gave $100,000 to AfGJ ($50,000 in 2004 and $50,000 in 2006).
Acting as a fiscal sponsor, AfGJ gave $50,000 to Refuse Fascism, an unincorporated Antifa group. Fiscal sponsors are recognized tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofits that take in donations on behalf of unincorporated or small groups so that donors can deduct the donations from their taxes, charging the group receiving the donation a processing fee.
Refuse Fascism was created in the weeks after Donald Trump’s unexpected victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. The group’s goal was summed up in a slogan on its website: “It’s Fascism: Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime!”
Refuse Fascism participated in rioting on Feb. 1, 2017, at the University of California, Berkeley, with the goal of preventing conservative controversialist Milo Yiannopoulos from giving a speech. The rioting caused more than $500,000 in damage.
Stopping someone from speaking is called no-platforming (or sometimes de-platforming). Summoning the spirit of “Repressive Tolerance” the New Left who favors shutting down non-leftists, Antifa and others on the far Left believe that "fascists" are not entitled to free speech.
Antifa's modus operandi is violent theatrics and property destruction leaving a path of violence, chaos, and vandalism whenever it appears, with local governments, businesses, and citizens to pick up the cost.
Intimidated; the Democrat party has been a complicit useful idiot in the hands of these subversive forces with the consolation that anything that hurts the government will hurt their enemy POTUS. There has been a Democrat migration to the left because of the influence these external forces have had on our national opinion and culture.

A wave self-destructive legislation has been passed. Most of these laws are a 180-degree turn from what the Democrat party stood for 6 years ago. To watch these same politicians on YouTube 6 years ago and compare it to what they are preaching today is stunning.

In conjunction with the political campaign, there are the cultural and educational approaches.

Some professors join Antifa-related groups, while others have helped Antifa to organize nationally on college campuses. In August, an Iowa community college professor resigned after local media reported that he supported Antifa.

Leftist professors who promote Antifa are only furthering the misconception that it is about fighting fascism, and their support effectively condones intimidation and violence as a way to affect change. Labeling Antifa as a terrorist organization would help universities to dampen pro-Antifa movements and defund work that promotes political violence.

The glamorization of violent lyrics and videos has permeated and surrendered our youth to a thug culture. Yes, I can hear some saying that I was guilty of the same, and maybe I was but my gangsta was tongue in cheek. I never promoted violence or FUCK The Police.

It’s like Sodom & Gomorrah all over. When I was a child, we were taught citizenship in school. They teach us to appreciate government workers. I remember a song that went: “the policeman, the fireman, the post man too, and the man who cleans the streets for you. Every time that one appears, give him, three loud rousing cheers! ♫”

Today we’re getting Transgender story Time instead and being taught how you can’t make it in this country because of racism.

It breaks my heart to see teenage girls yelling “Fuck You Pig!” at police. These are the very ones that need the protection most. In yesterday’s attack, I couldn’t wrap my head around what how the police cause the fare hike. Lastly, $2.75 subway fare to travel the girth and length of the city is a bargain.

Society is being played like a piano; cajoled into self-destructive antisocial acts in the name of a bogus socialism.

America was founded on the idea that Americans can disagree, and we cannot allow Antifa and political violence to become the new normal.

Antifa, however, does not fight fascism. They are the fascists. Labeling them as a terrorist organization will help to curb Antifa’s anti-American doctrine of political violence.
