Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared that the United States is “not an advanced society” and is devolving into a fascist country while campaigning alongside presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Los Angeles Saturday.
“Establishing a loving society in the United States of America” isn’t an “irrational, overly feeling, sympathetic statement,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Instead, it’s part of an ongoing mission to achieve “an advanced society,” she argued, citing past remarks by Harvard University professor and fellow Sanders surrogate Cornel West.

“What we are living in now is not an advanced society,” the far-left freshman congresswoman asserted, before claiming it is “fascism that we’re evolving into” under President Donald Trump.
In another part of her remarks, the New York Democrat called Sanders’ campaign “a movement that has been decades in the making” and said the time had come to put the interests of the working class ahead of the elites.
