It didn’t take long for U.S.-Representative-elect and Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to cause a ruckus in the nation’s capital. She hasn’t even been sworn in yet and already she’s taking aim at taking down the Democratic Party establishment.

As reported by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez joined a conference video call on Saturday for the newly-formed group “Justice Democrats,” a Marxist-Left organization of people who have but one objective: To replace establishment Democrats with younger, more ethnically diverse candidates who would, if elected, lead America down the path of Venezuela.

During the call, Ocasio-Cortez told attendees her path to Congress began after she, too, attended a Justice Democrats conference call before imploring supporters to mount similar campaigns in their own districts — even if it means against incumbent Democrats.

“Long story short, I need you to run for office. All I’m asking you to do is throw your hat in the ring, say ‘what the heck,’” she said, The Hill reported.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was tending bar and waitressing just a few short years ago, mounted an insurgent campaign against 10-term Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley, the House Democratic Caucus Chairman who, it was thought, would eventually succeed Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley in the primary in New York earlier this year. Since then, she’s become a darling to the Left-wing establishment media which so often promotes establishment Democrats (irony?) and a thorn in the side of her party’s leadership without yet having even been sworn in.

The Hill reported further:

The incoming freshman Democrat added that she and other members of the Justice Democrats, a group of progressive Democrats seeking to shift the Democratic Party left, would support challenges to incumbent Democrats they view as insufficiently aligned with the views of progressives in the party, particularly on the issue of corporate campaign donations.

“All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves,” she said. “I don’t think people who are taking money from pharmaceutical companies should be drafting health care legislation. I don’t think people who are taking money from oil and gas companies should be drafting climate change legislation.”
