I was out door knocking for a local state senate race last night, when we came to the door of an 80 year old woman.
She instantly asked if the candidate we were helping “would protect social security and medicare, people rely on those programs to live”. We said of course he would, he has a strong record of supporting social programs.
I then notice she is watching Fox News in the background. Her next question is about “that Cortez woman, she’s not running here is she”. We explain that she is running for Congress in NY.
“Good!! We don’t need any of those socialists here. Do you hear the whacky things she says, how will we pay for all that?!” said the elderly woman
I proceed to explain to her that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is very in lIne with the policies of FDR, and she calmed down. This goes to show the level of brainwashing people endure in America. An 80 year old democrat who’s main issues are social security and Medicare, watching Fox News and screaming in fear of socialism. This is America 🇺🇸
