We remember who ELSE joined her in backing Bernie… and they weren’t shy about political violence, either.
AOC’s ‘defund the police’ position seems a lot more suspect when it’s clear she’s thrown in with people like this. Not that her commitment to the militant left was ever in doubt. We’ve been talking about her and her Democratic Socialist views from the get-go. Here’s one of our articles that outlines those beliefs.
She has cheered those who rose up against ICE, has cheered Antifa, and even offered to help arrange bail for Antifa after an event last September.

Unicorn Riot is a registered nonprofit that purports to be alternative media, but runs pro-Antifa and anti-law enforcement content on a regular basis. They have recently been praised in the New Yorker for their “extremely compelling view” of the recent protests and riots.
…The publication has an extensive archive of articles dedicated to opposing law enforcement, immigration control, and regularly hosts interviews with anti-government activists. It also runs an on-going series called “Icebreaker,” leaking numerous Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policy manuals and tactical handbooks. —PostMillenial
We should probably ask her opinion about Soviet Gulags, since a number of her far-left fellow travelers and BernieBros are absolutely enchanted by them.
