New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won her election on Tuesday night, and she continued her streak of making absurdly ridiculous statements.
Ocasio-Cortez defeated her GOP challenger, St. John’s University professor Anthony Pappas, in New York’s 14th Congressional District. In doing so, she became the youngest woman ever elected to serve in Congress.
During her victory speech, the 29-year-old socialist made it very clear what to expect when she arrives at Congress in January.
Ocasio-Cortez went on to, without a shred of evidence, accuse Immigration Customs and Enforcement of committing “humans rights violations.”
“We launched this campaign because no one was clearly and authentically talking about issues like the corrupting role of money in politics. Like the disturbing human rights violations being committed by ICE,” Ocasio-Cortez shouted to the crowd while waving her arms. “By the fact that no one was giving a voice to the idea, to the notion that an entire generation is graduating with crippling loads of student loans debt that’s a ticking time bomb for our economy.”

She then thanked everyone who helped her campaign in the heavily liberal district, including every “Dreamer.”
“This is what is possible when everyday people come together in the collective realization that all our actions… are powerful, worthwhile, and capable of lasting change,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Words cannot express my gratitude to every organizer, every small-dollar donor, every working parent and Dreamer who helped make this movement happen. And that’s exactly what this is, not a campaign or an Election Day but a movement… for social, economic and racial justice,” she added, getting very animated while galvanizing her far-left supporters.
Earlier this week, the socialist offered a bizarre response when asked how American taxpayers would pay for the multi-billion dollar “Medicare for all” plan that she and other far-left Democrats support.
“You just… pay for it,” she said with a weird pause.

Recent studies have shown that the “Medicare for all” plan would increase government health care spending by $32.6 trillion over 10 years.
Later in that same interview, Ocasio-Cortez told host Jorge Ramos that it’s a “no-brainer” that President Donald Trump should be impeached.
“I mean, yeah. To me, it’s a no-brainer,” Ocasio-Cortez said, without providing any evidence that the president broke the law.
Last week, Ocasio-Cortez sent out a bizarre email demanding Democrats “push back” against Republicans and Trump, who she referred to as “cold-hearted monsters.”
Prior to that, Ocasio-Cortez told a small crowd that global warming is an ”existential threat” similar to Nazism. With no self-awareness at all, she claimed the plan to defeat “global warming” should be the same one used to defeat Adolf Hitler.
The socialist darling said her plan for Congress, when she arrives in a few months, will be to divide people; or, as she put it, “segmenting” them.
