From CBS News
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back on the campaign trail, but this time in the Midwest. The 28-year-old Democratic rising star is stumping for two young, progressive Democrats hoping to win Democratic primaries in Kansas and Michigan.
On Friday, she will travel to Wichita, Kansas to join Sen. Bernie Sanders in campaigning for James Thompson, a Democrat looking to flip a congressional seat once considered safely Republican. Then on July 28 and 29, she’ll visit Michigan to lend her national spotlight to Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old, progressive candidate for governor. She will travel throughout Michigan, including stops in Grand Rapids, Flint and Detroit.
“Right now we are in a critically important juncture in our country,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement released by El-Sayed’s campaign.
At least Bernie Sanders is a Senator. He won a couple of elections.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only won a primary. But she’s the rising star so they are going to get her out there.
She claims to have a degree in economics but she’s a socialist, and says shit like this:

Anybody with a degree in economics should understand how the government measures unemployment and labor force participation. Then again her degree is in “economics and international relations” and didn’t know anything about Israel and Palestine either.
I’m not sure if she should ask for a refund from Boston University, if Boston University should distance themselves from her, or if this is a sign that Boston University has become a worthless diploma mill of Leftist indoctrination.
But I digress…
So Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are on their way to the Midwest to campaign.
I didn’t live in Kansas, but I did live in Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska, and South Dakota. So I’ve spent some time in agrarian Midwestern states.
We don’t like socialists.
We watch Red Dawn and cheer when the high school kids are shooting socialists with AK-47s.
Sure, there will be a couple of people there who will cheer for the Bern, and she’ll probably go over great in Detroit.
But for the most of the Midwest, a New York City socialist coming to the Midwest just pisses us off. Anybody who stands up next to a New York City socialist in a farm in Kansas is begging the state to tell him to jump feet first into a combine.
