AOC Claims Democrats Never ‘Campaigned on Socialism, Defunding the Police’
'We can do better. When we really dig down and refine our operations'
Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that no Democratic Party member campaigned on “socialism or defunding the police in this general election.”
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union," the congresswoman who frequently pushes far-left socialist ideology, said:
“I think one of the things that is very important is that is to realize that very effective Republican attacks are going to happen every cycle, so the question is, how do we defend ourselves against that?"
"If you look at some of these, you know, some of the arguments that are being advanced, that defund the police or arguments about socialism hurt, not a single member of Congress that I’m aware of campaigned on socialism or defunding the police in this general election," she claimed.
“These were largely slogans, or they were demands from activist groups that we saw in the largest uprising in American history around police brutality."
"So the question we have is how can we build a more effective Democratic operations that are more stronger and more resilient to Republican attacks?" AOC asked.
"I think many areas we can point out in centralized Democratic operations that are extraordinarily weak."
"For example, our digital campaigning is very weak," she added.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on criticism from within the Democratic Party: "There are, at least in the House caucus, very deep divisions within the party and I believe that we need to really come together and not allow Republican narratives to tear us apart" #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/og9EF69dNH— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) November 8, 2020
"This is an area where Republicans are actually quite strong," AOC continued.
"You know, President Trump, he won the 2016 election as we know largely on digital organizing and strategy."
"I believe that many Republicans were very effective at digital organizing strategy as well, whereas the Democratic Party is still campaigning largely as though it’s 2005, and that was 15 years ago," she said.
"We can do better. When we really dig down and refine our operations, we can be more resilient to these strong Republican attacks.”
Earlier this week, AOC suggested, “Trump sycophants” should be held accountable for their "complicity" as allegations mount against Democrats for voter fraud causing the president to fall behind.
