Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lot of explaining to do after this humiliating defeat

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fancies herself the leader of socialist revolution in America.

But on Tuesday night, Ocasio-Cortez got a wakeup call.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lot of explaining to do after this humiliating defeat.

In the special primary election in Ohio’s 11th Congressional District, establishment favorite Shontel Brown defeated Nina Turner, who served as national co-chair of Bernie Sanders 2020 Presidential campaign and who also earned Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement.

Ocasio-Cortez hoped to add another socialist ally to the “Squad” in hopes of pulling the Democrat Party even further to the Left.

But support from Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders proved to be a liability in this race – even in a deep blue district – as the Associated Press called the race with Brown leading 51 to 44 percent.

After the race, Turner showed why she lost with an angry, bigoted speech.

“On this night, we will not cross the river,” Turner told supporters.

Turner spoke in code when blamed her loss on “secret” – i.e. Jewish – money that Turner claimed “manipulated” the election.

“I am going to work hard to ensure that something like this never happens to a progressive candidate again,” Turner thundered. “We didn’t lose this race — the evil money manipulated and maligned this election.”

Establishment Democrats know that if the party has any chance of hanging on to power next November, the fewer “Squad” members there are running around yelling about the wonders of socialism and supporting defunding the police the better.

That combination proved to be deadly for Democrats in 2020 as Republicans labeled Democrats as the party of AOC and Ilhan Omar, leading to Republicans gaining double digit seats in the House of Representatives when all the “experts” predicted massive Democrat gains.

Democrats were nervous about history repeating itself and tried to nip a crisis in the bud by defeating Nina Turner in the Ohio 11th District special election.
