Ocasio-Cortez Channels FALN on Puerto Rico

David Catron, The American Spectator

Puerto Rico’s actual history fails to conform to the mythology imbibed by our “Puerto Rican woman.” We mortals are not able to simultaneously view the world through the eyes of a girl from the Bronx who grew up in Westchester and is now a Puerto Rican woman. Nor have we been inculcated with the Marxist ideology that allows us to parrot FALN propaganda without thinking of the dead and maimed. How canwe know what someone who lives in a totally different universe knows?

Is it Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Party Now?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

While the victory of Ocasio-Cortez is bad news for Pelosi and Hoyer, it may also be a harbinger of what is to come. For the Democratic Party appears about to unleash its radical left, its Maxine Waters wing, and give its ideology another run in the yard. When the party has done this before, however, it did not end well. The new demography of the Democratic Party brought about the defeat of Crowley. A majority white district when he first ran, the Bronx-Queens district he now represents is only one-sixth white. The Irish and Italians have moved out or passed on. And Archie Bunker? He rests in peace in Calvary Cemetery. Like his party.
