She can’t even handle the thought of it…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) decried a GOP PAC ad that aired during the Democrat debate. She called the ad, which targeted her socialist ideas, “violent,” “false,” and a “love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”
“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng said. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”
“My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism. Forced obedience. Starvation. Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist or socialist. I’m a Republican,” she continued:
We have a choice: Will we let socialists like @AOC be the face of our future? Or will a new generation of conservatives step up & lead us? We’re launching New Faces GOP to help identify & support the next generation of GOP leaders. Learn more: https://t.co/UrarCUSAIl pic.twitter.com/LgwTrS8En6

However, Ocasio-Cortez asserted that the ad used her image due to racism, rather than the socialist ideology she routinely espouses.
“Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist,” she wrote.
“Life is weird!” she exclaimed, calling the ad “a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case”:
Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color – that was the pretense.
What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case. https://t.co/zvp1EB02c5
