Nothing To See Here - Just AOC Trying To Interfere In A Foreign Election

Democrats have spent over three years harping about alleged foreign meddling in elections as an excuse for why Hillary lost in 2016 but as typical, they have a serious double standard.
Unable to convince voters that their socialist ideas will fix all that ails America, they instead continue to fabricate foreign boogeymen to push for censoring their political adversaries and silence Trump supporters who they accuse of being Russian agents.
But when it comes to their meddling in foreign elections, the shoe is on the other foot and the media turns a blind eye - especially when it comes to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The freshman firebrand used her fearsome social media presence to advocate for British candidate and accused anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour party in the UK's critical elections that will determine the fate of Brexit.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was getting hammered on Thursday for backing the United Kingdom's far-left Labour Party headed by Jeremy Corbyn, who repeatedly has been accused of being an anti-Semite.
Ocasio-Cortez shared a video promoting the Labour Party, saying more conservative economic policies were hurting Britain's working class.
"This video is about the UK, but it might as well have been produced about the United States," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "The hoarding of wealth by the few is coming at the cost of peoples’ lives. The only way we change is with a massive surge of *new* voters at the polls. UK, Vote!"
Both Corbyn and his Labour Party have faced numerous allegations of anti-Semitism. A recent poll showed that a whopping 87 percent of Jewish people in Great Britain believed Corbyn was anti-Semitic, pointing to many incidents and remarks, many of them involving his staunch support for Palestinians and a perceived hostility toward Israel. Recent reports also showed Jewish members of the Labour Party repeatedly expressing concerns of what they saw as growing anti-Semitism within the party.
The freshman congresswoman was blasted on social media for her tweet.
"For Jews who are worried about the Corbynization of the Democratic Party, AOC officially endorsing Corbyn is going to look like confirmation of their worst fears," Forward opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon tweeted.
"AOC endorsing Corbyn is a major moment, and for all those who cover anything remotely in the orbit of any of this: You will be judged on how you cover it. Just letting you know. This will be a big part of your grade for the semester," Washington Examiner executive editor Seth Mandel wrote.
Like her fellow Squad members Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the new breed of radical Democrats are drawn to anti-Semites like moths to light and the controversial Corbyn has like AOC and her ilk, normalized anti-Semitism within their parties.
But AOC is choking down a good-sized helping of crow today after the British electorate rose up and delivered a devastating rebuke to socialism by delivering a massive victory to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Johnson and the conservative Tories routed Corbyn's forces, delivering to him the biggest majority in Parliament since the days of Margaret Thatcher.
So much for AOC's endorsement.
As for Corbyn, his defeat was so devastating that he is stepping down as the leader of his party.
May this serve as a warning for American Democrats that their socialism, intolerance, bigotry and bullying may cost them dearly next November when the silent majority that is sneered at by the media elite finally a chance to speak.
