AOC Confident Progressives Can Push Biden to the Far-Left If He’s Elected
Joe Biden is not a moderate, just an empty vessel for the Left.
Further proof of this came from recent remarks from Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who told Just the News that Biden “not progressive enough in multiple policy areas but predicted that he “likely” can be pushed further to the left once he’s elected president.”

AOC also agrees with Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, who is reportedly concerned that Biden is not progressive enough and could lose Leftist voters.
“Of course I do [agree with Sanders]. We’re different people, and clearly I, in the primary, one of the reasons why I was supportive of Senator Sanders was because of how progressive his stances are, but, you know, the primaries are over, and right now what is most important is to make sure that we ensure a Democratic victory in November and that we continue to push Vice President Biden on issues from marijuana to climate change to foreign policy.
“I think, overall, we can likely push Vice President Biden in a more progressive direction across policy issues. I think foreign policy is an enormous area where we can improve; immigration is another one. There are some areas where we just fundamentally disagree, but that’s okay. I think it’s important to acknowledge that we can have, in some cases, very large disagreements — it doesn’t mean that we’re trying to undermine the party or undermine each other. It means that we’re trying to do what’s best for people in the country.”
AOC’s answers are frightening and a harbinger of doom should Biden win. A vote for Biden is a vote for far-Leftism.
