Latest from the “Bronx Bolshevik”

And, it appears, the “Bronx” part is mostly phony, since she lived in wealthy Westchester County, and went to school there, from the age of 3.

Ocasio-Cortez Calls for Occupation of Airports, ICE Offices: ‘We Have to Mobilize’

New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on protesters rallying under the “Abolish ICE” banner to occupy border crossings, airports and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices across the country.

Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during an interview on Monday with Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman, speaking alongside Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau.

The politician said Americans who want to see ICE abolished have to “have a rapid response.”

“We have to occupy all of it,” she said. “We need to occupy every airport. We need to occupy every border. We need to occupy every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period.”

Ocasio-Cortez said that the movement to abolish ICE also represents “an implicit rejection of the current administration’s policies,” including its family separation policy.

On Monday, House GOP leaders quashed a contentious floor vote on a Democratic measure calling for ICE to be abolished.

Commentary seen on Facebook:

Shhh! Hear that sound? It’s dozens of political pundits doing a synchronized face palm.

#BronxBolshevik could’ve kept a low profile after her surprise defeat of Joe Crowley, and diligently boned up on the issues — particularly, the issues of importance to NY-CD14.

But, no.

She had to be a big shot, didn’t she?
She had to open up her mouth.
She had to be a big shot, didn’t she?
All the media were so knocked out.
She had to have the last word, last night,
She knows what everything’s about.
She had to have a white hot spotlight,
She had to be a big shot last night.

As she basked in the spotlight, she informed us that ICE was operating “black sites” at the border; condemned “the occupation of Palestine”; and explained that unemployment was low because people were “holding down two jobs to feed their kids.”

And now? She is advocating that people who want ICE abolished “have a rapid response,” by which she means to gather in flash mobs to “occupy every airport, every border, every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period.”

I wonder if #BronxBolshevik knows — or cares — how many LEOs live in CD14. She doesn’t even pretend to want to represent us.

    Dated a Jewish guy from Westchester while in college. These people are so wealthy. One wonders if the Bronx Bolshevik did not spend her formative years looking in from the outside with naught but greed and envy.
