WATCH: AOC Urges Supporters To ‘Radicalize’ In Response To RBG’s Death (VIDEO)
Ocasio-Cortez stated, “The very last dying wish of RBG was that her vacancy not be filled until the new president takes office in January. That was her dying wish. Tonight, Mitch McConnell publicly-. The night that she-. The night of her passing. He couldn’t wait 24 hours. Issued a statement saying that he was going to give Trump a vote in violation of her dying wish. People can say “how appalling”. People can say this is horrible, et cetera. But we know who this man is.”
Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Instagram after the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and calling on her supporters to ‘radicalize’.
AOC responded, “This is a man who does not care about a dying woman’s final wish. Clearly. And so, listen, we need to size up what we are up against. So listen, let this moment radicalize you. Let this moment really put everything into stark focus, because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives. And if anything tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before. And I’m gonna tell you, it’s going to get more and more and more clear to up until Election Day.”
AOC continued, “Things are going to happen. They are. We have an authoritarian president. That’s what we have. He has no regard for the dignity of human life. He has no regard for law. He has no regard for justice. He has no regard for anything unless it personally helps him and his power and his money and that of the Republican establishment. That’s just what it is. It’s just what it is. So listen. On the left, there’s a lot of-. There’s a huge diversity. Right? And we get mad at each other. That’s the way it is because it’s incredibly frustrating. I am-. I get incredibly frustrated. You all know I get incredibly frustrated with my own party, too. We all have our disagreements. That’s fine. Because we all recognize that November. Frankly, I wish it wasn’t like this. And it only serves to highlight the brokenness of our entire system, but whether we like it or not, November is about survival. November is about survival. And we need to work to honor all of those who came before us to fight for our future and to fight for our democracy and to fight for something more just.”
