New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks for large portions of the Democrat Party base.
That is becoming a massive political liability for the left.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on one rant that crippled Democrats for years to come.
Ocasio-Cortez posted a story to her Instagram story attacking Democrats who criticized woke leftists for using the term “Latinx” to describe Hispanics.

That story attracted a ton of negative attention because woke liberals and terms like “Latinx” are driving Latino voters from the Democrat Party.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to that backlash with another Instagram post whining about her critics.
“I also have a mini-rant about this because there are some politicians, including Democratic politicians, that rail against the term ‘Latinx.’ And they’re like, ‘this is so bad, this is so bad for the party,’ like blah blah blah. And it’s almost like it hasn’t struck some of these folks that another person’s identity is not about your reelection prospects,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted.
But the numbers show just how big of a disaster Ocasio-Cortez is steering the Democrat Party towards by demanding elected Democrats speak woke shibboleths like “Latinx” which is a political albatross for the left.
A left-wing polling outfit called ThinkNow Research conducted a survey showing how just two percent of Hispanics identified as “Latinx.”
“We presented our respondents with seven of the most common terms used to describe Latinos and asked them to select the one that best describes them. When it came to ‘Latinx,’ there was near unanimity. Despite its usage by academics and cultural influencers, 98% of Latinos prefer other terms to describe their ethnicity. Only 2% of our respondents said the label accurately describes them, making it the least popular ethnic label among Latinos,” ThinkNow Research wrote of the poll’s findings.
A second poll from last November by the liberal firm of Bendixen & Amandi International which specializes in Hispanic outreach found that Democrats using the term Latinx offended large swaths of the Latino voters.
“The numbers suggest that using Latinx is a violation of the political Hippocratic Oath, which is to first do no electoral harm,” pollster Fernand Amandi told POLITICO. “Why are we using a word that is preferred by only 2 percent, but offends as many as 40 percent of those voters we want to win?”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a rigid ideologue with a large megaphone.
Ocasio-Cortez speaks for the woke mobs on college campuses and social media that drive so much of the Democrat Party discourse.
But adopting woke language like “Latinx” helped explain why Pew showed Donald Trump won 38 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2020.
That number figures to increase in 2022 and 2024.
And it’s none other than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez helping dig the Democrats’ grave.
