AOC’s Former Staffer Has an Interesting Admission About ‘Democratic Socialism’

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes conducted a “Headliners” profile on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), how she decided to run for Congress and why she’s popular amongst the Democratic Party. Two interesting points came up during the profile: AOC had a huge “burden” to decide to run and, according to one senior campaign aide, Democratic Socialism isn’t as fringe as it’s often made out to be. . .

But the scariest thing to come about: AOC’s former senior campaign aide, Walid Shaheed, explaining how Democratic Socialism has become more mainstream.

“I think Bernie Sanders really opened the window for the debate on Democratic Socialism in this country,” Shaheed said during the special. “It’s not as fringe as you might think. In fact, what’s becoming fringe is if you call yourself a capitalist openly.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s team likes to seize on this idea that conservatives are obsessed with the Congresswoman because she threatens their power, she threatens the status quo, not because her ideas are dangerous to America’s future or because these ideas have become “the norm.” (Read more from “AOC’s Former Staffer Has an Interesting Admission About ‘Democratic Socialism'” HERE)
