Let’s be clear – we are no fans of Joseph Crowley. The multiterm incumbent was defeated handily in New York by upstart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the political Cinderella story of the decade.
Or is it?
Ocasio-Cortez won her election by taking advantage of the left’s obsession with intersectionality. She used her status as a non-white daughter of immigrant “types” to form a bond with these voters. Her upbringing, however, is nothing like her political ads suggest.
Ocasio-Cortez’s father was actually a well-to-do architect who bought a home in Yorktown, one of the more expensive neighborhoods in New York. Cortez herself attended school in this district, growing up around upper middle class people. She is not the working class, salt of the earth individual she claims to be.
She has also had political ambitions since she was a child. Who told the news media this little tidbit? None other than her mother. So when Ocasio-Cortez says in her ads and interviews that “she never wanted to run,” that is another lie.
You can’t expect much from the electorate in the district that Ocasio-Cortez actually won. Only 28% of the people in that space vote anyway. Ocasio-Cortez said as much in an interview on MSNBC. All that you have to do is turn a few heads, and you can get a complete upset, which is what happened.
This does not mean that the Democratic Party is changing. It means that the party is imploding.
Democrats actually think that a few thousand votes in a district with less than 30% voter turnout means a shift in the party. No, you are still the same loudmouth do-nothing parasites that you always were. Case in point — Ocasio-Cortez took complete advantage of her racial background to create some rags-to-slightly-better-rags story and get the vote of a few first or second generation immigrants.
Honestly, Crowley should ask for a recount to ensure that everyone who voted is legal. Oh wait — Democrats completely shunned the notion of voter mis-registration. Well, hopefully he has something else lined up!
Because mainstream media has latched onto the Ocasio-Cortez story, she will probably win in the general. Will this mean better circumstances for the immigrants who are currently there? No. If she gets everything that she wants, she will vote to flood New York with more unskilled labor. Simple supply and demand takes over from here. More unskilled workers equals lower pay for everyone. No one gets out of poverty, and no one gets to buy a house in Yorktown for their kids.
Ocasio-Cortez is basically ensuring that there will not be a second Ocasio-Cortez. This is the game that politicians play, however. They kill their competition in the womb.
Congratulations, Ocasio-Cortez! You have likely assured yourself a long career of doing nothing and making money from media interviews and backdoor deals. As your competition, we actually love it, but those poor immigrants in your district are about to get a rude awakening.
