Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to compare Democrats winning elections to the abolition of slavery during a Kansas campaign speech Friday.

“I learned that Kansas was founded over the struggle of the conscience of this nation,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Wichita crowd of over 4,000 people, as reported by Breitbart. “It was when we were deciding who we wanted to be as a country. It was when we were deciding who we wanted to be with the Kansas-Nebraska Act. The people who were … leading this nation said, ‘You decide’ to the people.”

“‘Are we going to be a slave state or are we going to be a free state?’ And it was in 1861 that the people of Kansas decided that we were going to be a free nation,” she continued. “Back then, the people of Kansas were the tipping point for the future of this nation. Today, they are again.”

WIBC host Tony Katz explained the utter lunacy and daft ignorance of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments:

“If that’s the case, they’re not going to vote for socialists! Because you already said they didn’t vote for slavery, because if they would have voted for slavery, they would have been Democrats!

Socialism is slavery, so why the hell would they do it again? 

Exactly how daft and ignorant do you think the people of Kansas are? Why do you insult them like this?”
