NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told her supporters that “we’re not going back to brunch” even if Joe Biden wins the presidential election because "we’ve got a whole world to build from here."
In a new Instagram video posted Saturday after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, AOC urged her followers to remain active in politics and “act in solidarity” even if the Democratic nominee beats President Donald Trump in November.
“Voting for Joe Biden is not about whether you agree with him, it’s a vote to let our democracy live another day,” she said. “That’s what this is about.”
“No one politician is the answer. No one president is the answer,” she continued. “You are the answer. Mass movements are the answer. Millions of people are the answer.”
“I’m sorry to tell you, you’re not going back to brunch,” the rep said. “We’re not going back to brunch. That’s not happening.”
AOC said her supporters need to help “the most vulnerable people in our society, who have already experienced the violent repercussions of this administration.”
“And the reason we need to do that is because, yes, the political middle is willing to sacrifice immigrants. The political middle, too often, is willing to play both sides when someone dies to police violence—absolutely,” she said. “That’s why we need to show up. We need to show up, because if we don’t show up, those people don’t get protected.”
