Tom Perez, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has declared Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-described “socialist” who defeated an incumbent Congressman in NY-14’s Democratic primary last week, the “future of our party” during an interview on The Bill Press Show.
“Well, my daughters — I have three kids, two of whom are daughters. One just graduated college, one who is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because she really — she represents the future of our party,” he told the radio host. ”She ran a spirited campaign.”
Perez comes from the establishment wing of the Democratic Party; he served as Labor Secretary in the Obama administration and defeated Antifa-aligned candidate Rep. Keith Ellison (R-MN) in order to win his position as DNC Chair. However, his latest remarks make clear that Democratic leadership is more than eager to embrace the rising tide of left-wing extremism in America in order to oust President Donald Trump.
During Perez’s leadership, the Democrats have adopted increasingly provocative rhetoric.
“[Trump] doesn’t give a shit about people,” he proclaimed at an event last year, despite being in the presence of numerous children.
He has sought to align the party closely with the anti-American ‘Resistance’ movement, refusing to recognize the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, and leading an angry mob outside the White House in support of fired deep state operative James Comey.
Now, he has made clear that even the supposed ‘mainstream’ of the Democratic Party seeks to take the United States down the same poisonous socialist path as Venezuela and Nicaragua.
