New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has gone from referring to herself as “vibrant and energetic” to now claiming she feels like an “American revolutionary.”
Amazing how much someone can change just weeks after being elected as a member of Congress.
On Wednesday night, the 29-year-old socialist took to Twitter after she visited “The Great Leap” at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
She tweeted out a photo matching the text on display at the museum.
The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”
But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?
She captioned her tweet: “Mood: American Revolutionary.”

Her bizarre tweet drew scorn from several conservatives on Twitter.
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro tweeted, “Wait until you hear about their perspective on limited government and individual rights!”

Several other users slammed the socialist for her numerous gaffes and embarrassing comments.
Was this before or after they created the 3 chambers of government? https://t.co/lOZRYyq9z5
