AOC: ‘I Am One of the Most Hated People in America’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made quite the name for herself over the last year.

Including “one of the most hated people in America,” according to herself.

In a New York Mag interview, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about the constant criticism and negativity she’s received since she was elected to congress in 2018.

She simply said, “It’s weird. Because I know I am also one of the most hated people in America.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued, talking about what exactly she’s looking to do in being a dissenting voice within her party and against established Democrat leadership.

“For so long, when I first got in, people were like, ‘Oh, are you going to basically be a tea party of the left?’ And what people don’t realize is that there is a tea party of the left, but it’s on the right edges, the most conservative parts of the Democratic Party. So the Democratic Party has a role to play in this problem, and it’s like we’re not allowed to talk about it. We’re not allowed to talk about anything wrong the Democratic Party does. I think I have created more room for dissent, and we’re learning to stretch our wings a little bit on the left.”

Despite her fiery tenure as a New York representative so far, the end could be nigh as her district will likely be redrawn by state representatives when the 2020 Census rolls around — ultimately drawing her out of her own district.

The City reports:

“For Ocasio-Cortez, a full Census count is more than a matter of making sure her district gets all the funds and services it’s due. In a sense, her own political fortunes could hang in the balance.

“A review by THE CITY, building on data and analysis by The Texas Tribune, suggests Ocasio-Cortez’ district could be particularly vulnerable to undercount because a little over a quarter of those living there are non-citizens.

“That’s a higher percentage than any other congressional district in the state.

“A Census undercount in Ocasio-Cortez’ district and elsewhere in the state could lead to the elimination of congressional districts — potentially setting off politically charged redistricting battles.”
