Just Another Liberal Liar

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be a “girl from the Bronx,” who will represent New York City’s 14th districts working class . She claims that she was born and raised in the Bronx and is the daughter of a “small businessman,” and a mother who “cleaned houses.”

Her father, Sergio Ocasio-Roman, was born in New York City and was a prominent architect. Her mother says that it was her mother, Cortez’s grandmother, that cleaned houses in Puerto Rico, not her.

So now we find that she is actually lying about her working-class roots and actually grew up in Westchester County, which is a ritzy upstate suburb of New York City and attended public school in Yorktown, where homes sell for nearly $900,000. Cortez’s father moved his family to the suburb in 1991 because of the “good school districts” in the area, school districts which didn’t exist in the Bronx.

She graduated from Brown University, working for Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, on immigration. She also dabbled in establishment politics during college, but turned her attention to the grass-roots work that would come to define her candidacy. She returned to national politics when she worked as a community organizer for the Sanders campaign.

That is a far cry from the “hard-knock life” that she claims to have had.

She says she will fight for New York’s working class. She advocates: Repeal of 2nd Amendment, Open Borders, Free College, Abolishing ICE, Higher Minimum Wage, Free Housing, No Travel Ban, No Wall, Abolish Capitalism and Free Medical. 

She claims to be a Socialist Democrat, which is just another name for the Communist Party.
