Squad member and extreme progressive Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has her own interpretation of why so many prominent Democrats lost their seats around the country in this week’s elections. They were too moderate.
Speaking on the Virginia gubernatorial election in which Republican Glenn Youngkin beat former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, AOC said the Democrat didn’t “energize a progressive base.” McAuliffe ran a “100% super moderated campaign” she stated.
.@AOC finds a silver lining in Virginia election losses.

Posted in a video to her Instagram story, AOC continued, “plus, on the election front. I actually think we have good news as well. I know that Virginia was a huge bummer. And honestly, if anything, I think that the results show the limits of trying to run a fully 100% super moderated campaign that does not excite, speak to or energize a progressive base. And frankly, we weren’t even really invited to contribute on that race.”
Social media users quickly shut down her backwards analysis, with one Twitter user responding, “saying we need less white teachers is moderate”? McAuliffe angered many with his extreme statements on parents and education. Another user wrote, “Yes AOC you’re absolutely right. The issue is that Dems didn’t push CRT hard enough.”
“When parents heard Terry McAuliffe say…that parents don’t have a role in their kids’ education…this ceased to be a campaign, and it started to be a movement led by parents” Youngkin told Tucker Carlson on his Fox News program Wednesday night. McAuliffe also lamented there were too many white teachers in Virginia and suggested programs to pay for diverse teachers to move to the state.
