Conservative Reporter Gets Roasted For Being Terrified At An Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Rally

After her primary win in New York, democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a subject of extreme fixation by the Republican party. Conservative pundits like to hold her up as an example of the “dangerous” evolution of the Democratic party—how the far left is becoming more radical and decentralized.

To capitalize on this fascination, Virginia Kruta, an associate editor for The Daily Caller, went to a Democratic rally where Ocasio-Cortez was speaking to give her fellow conservatives a first-hand report of what it was like. Her verdict? It was terrifying. Absolutely terrifying.

The scariest thing, according to Kruta? How easy it is for anyone, even conservatives, to get behind Ocasio-Cortez’s democratic socialist platform. Here are some of the horrors Kruta found herself being swayed by:

  • I saw how easy it would be, as a parent, to accept the idea that my children deserve healthcare and education.

  • I saw how easy it would be, as someone who has struggled to make ends meet, to accept the idea that a “living wage” was a human right.

  • Above all, I saw how easy it would be to accept the notion that it was the government’s job to make sure that those things were provided.

Kruta went on Fox News and discussed her experience, thanking God’s grace for giving her the strength to resist the Democrat’s evil platform.

And she quickly became a meme.

Twitter was quick to observe Ocasio-Cortez’s “radical ideas” weren’t all that radical.

Fox News just keeps helping liberals.

Ocasio-Cortez even chimed in on the report!

Of course, this isn’t the first time Fox has tried to demonize Ocasio-Cortez and ended up doing her a favor.

Sean Hannity put her in his crosshairs shortly after she won her primary:

You’d think someone over at Fox News would check these things to make sure they’re actually scary.

Instead, a picture of Ocasio-Cortez’s platform quickly went viral.

Even if you disagree with some, surely platform points like “women’s rights” and “support seniors” aren’t that bad.

Imagine the dystopian future where campaign finance is clean and everyone has health care!

In her video, Kruta said the democratic socialist platform is dangerous because it offers things all people want (and often need), but WHERE WILL THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THEM COME FROM?

It turns out Ocasio-Cortez has been pretty upfront about that. Democratic socialists believe we should be raising taxes on the rich. WHICH IS JUST TOO CRAZY FOR KRUTA TO HANDLE!
