These people really believe they want to live in a country with a one-party system.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to Instagram on Tuesday night and suggested that the states in the south need to be "liberated."
During an over hour-long livestream about the Capitol Hill riots and the ongoing efforts to impeach President Trump, the progressive lawmaker reiterated her call for GOP Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to resign or be ousted by Democratic challengers for leading the opposition in the certification of President-elect Biden's victory.
She then pointed to "multi-racial" and "multi-cultural" grassroots organization in Georgia that led to Democrats taking control of the Senate as a sign that "southern states are not red states, they are suppressed states."
"Which means the only way that our country's going to heal is through the actual liberation of southern states, Ocasio-Cortez explained to her 8.3 million Instagram followers, "the actual liberation of the poor, the actual liberation of working people from economic, social, and racial oppression. That's the only way."
