Former Aide To Ocasio-Cortez Says “Democracy Should Mean Taking Wealth And Power From Those Who Hoard It…” (Video)

(Gateway Pundit) – This new crop of leftists is made up of scary, crazy people who have absolutely no idea what America stands for. Either that or they just don’t care.

A former aide to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Waleed Shahid, appeared on MSNBC on Thursday and gave a description of democracy that defies belief.

Waleed says true democracy is redistribution. They truly want to turn America into Venezuela.

MSNBC Guest: ‘Democracy Should Mean Taking Power and Wealth From Those Who Hoard It’

MSNBC panelists struggled Thursday to explain the concept of democracy while considering the rise of socialist ideas in the United States.

The discussion on MSNBC Live, hosted by Katy Tur, led off with a discussion about the latest college admissions scandal. The Department of Justice charged dozens of rich parents this week with fraudulently securing college admission for their kids.

Democratic strategist Waleed Shahid insisted the college scandal proved the need for radical proposals, no matter their financial absurdity. “I think we need politicians who are going to produce solutions as big as the problems that people face,” he said. “That’s the reason that things like Medicare for all and the Green New Deal are catching on.”

Shahid is the communications director for Justice Democrats and previously worked for both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.). Both lawmakers support the policy proposals he referenced.
