RADICAL CHIC: THE NEXT GENERATION. New Video: AOC, Ilhan Omar repeatedly refuse to condemn Antifa attack on ICE!

More: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her allies ‘a bunch of communists’ who ‘hate our own country.’

He’s not wrong. As John Hinderaker writes at Power Line:

I am pretty much with Lindsay Graham on this one. There aren’t many bad things one can say about AOC, Ilhan Omar et al. that I wouldn’t subscribe to, as long as one sticks to the facts.

Some would say that Graham went overboard when he referred to the radical Democrats as “a bunch of Communists,” on the ground that a socialist is not the same thing as a Communist. I am not offended by Graham’s use of that term, however. I think when people like the radical Congresswomen and Bernie Sanders use the phrase “democratic socialist” to describe their views, they basically mean Communism that is imposed via elections rather than armed rebellion. If there is any limit they would impose on government power, I haven’t seen it–certainly not in the Green New Deal.

To be fair, based on their recent activity, the jury is still out on AOC and her chief of staff being national or international socialists.
