OFF THE DEEP END: AOC Says She Might Not Make it Through September, Feels ‘Despised’

In a recent interview with GQ, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared some shocking revelations, including her fear of being killed and being despised by fellow Democrats.

“I hold two contradictory things at the same time,” Ocasio-Cortez says in the interview. “One is just the relentless belief that anything is possible. But at the same time, my experience here has given me a front-row seat to how deeply and unconsciously, as well as consciously, so many people in this country hate women. And they hate women of color.”

“People ask me questions about the future,” she said. “And realistically, I can’t even tell you if I’m going to be alive in September. And that weighs very heavily on me. And it’s not just the right wing. Misogyny transcends political ideology: left, right, center.”

From The Daily Wire:

The bartender-turned-politician, who is running for a third term in the House in November, is dubbed by interviewer Wesley Lowery as “the political voice of a generation—and a cultural star whose power transcends politics.”

To the progressive left, Lowery writes, Ocasio-Cortez is “the best and possibly last—depending on how quickly some combination of fascism, religious fundamentalism, and climate change comes for us all—chance; a source of hope that things can get better in their lifetimes.”

Ocasio-Cortez, who in April got engaged to Riley Roberts, discusses her concerns about spending her life with a white man, worrying about the difficulties of a multi-racial, multi-cultural relationship.

Overall, AOC feels “despised” in her role.

“Imagine working a job and your bosses don’t like you and folks on your team are suspicious of you. And then the competing company is trying to kill you,” she said.
