Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez botched more questions on Israel and her ideology in another major interview on Monday, just days after a disastrous PBS interview where she claimed that Israel was occupying Palestinian territory before admitting that she did not know what she was talking about.
In an interview with far-left “Democracy Now!” Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer questions on Israel after her PBS interview debacle made national headlines after The Daily Wire drew attention to it.
Host Amy Goodman asked Ocasio-Cortez: “Is there a difference between your position as an activist and as a candidate, particularly in the ability to be critical of human rights violations committed by Israel?”
Ocasio-Cortez struggled to answer the question, saying: “Well I think that, um, you know I don’t think that there’s a huge difference. I do think that as we approach issues like these and sometimes we hope that … there’s a lot, I mean candidates are, the inherent nature of being a candidate and being in a political office means that my job is to be criticized, and my job is to be held accountable, that is my job.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued by once again suggesting that she does not know what she is talking about but that she is going to consult left-wing activists to develop her stance on the issue.
Goodman then asked Ocasio-Cortez if she was still in favor of a two-state solution after she reiterated support for it during her PBS interview.
Ocasio-Cortez refused to give an answer on it, only saying that she was going to consult with “lots of activists.”
Even worse, Ocasio-Cortez could not defend her own far-left political ideology, admitting to “Democracy Now!” that the only way she can win is by “expanding the electorate.”
Ocasio-Cortez also suggested that she could not win by staying in mainstream American politics and could not win by convincing people that her ideology was best.
Ocasio-Cortez later added that she thinks that cities are a good place to “experiment” with policies and to “reject the argument that these things don’t work.”
Ocasio-Cortez listed off multiple examples of her progressive ideology and suggested that it can work but failed to give even a single example of such policies achieving success, anywhere.
